This was a statement win -- even if it was against Les Wiz.

It was a statement win because it was the second of back to back nights for a seven-man team that also had to fly half way accross the country in between games. These 5 starters played 85 minutes each in the two games, and were flying down the court in the fourth tonight.

Pretty amazing to see how much the young core of knicks have bought into the d'antoni system and what a difference in attitude there is from last year.

The team is not going to be as bad as people think after the trade. the departing 40 points will be made up by mobley's 13, harington's usual 15 and the 15 or so that thomas put up under d'antoni during phoenix' playoff run in 06. These are serviceable players coming in who are all fast enough to run this system. Reports of randolph's dominance or crawford's utility and defensive competence have been exagerated (surprise!) by the media now that they are gone. Their numbers are up because the knicks have 20% more chances than they did last year under the 7 seconds or less optimum shot philosophy of the current offense.

Tonight was a really fun game -- and if they are going to be fun with only seven players available, they are going to be compelling to watch when you add Harrington, Thomas and the Cat on Tuesday.

I'm going to man up and get a mini plan. Tonight sold me.

It is the system not the players that makes you beat the worst team in basketball!

i think they will trade lee. he wants 10 mil and that will be a contract donnie won't want.

i think they will keep nate though.

on the brightsied lee will at least give us that pick we will lose in 09 or 10 because of marbury.

marbury, how much can one man cost?
