"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

Best Lin sign I've seen yet: Who says Asians can't drive?

This is an amazing amazing story. I daresay most of us here need something like this to get behind, sports wise.

Shed no tears for D'Antoni.

The job of a coach is to win with the players he has.

The Knicks have enough good players to win a lot more than they lose.

He may have objected to getting Carmelo in the first place, but once it happened, it was up to D'Antoni to try to make it work.

Instead, he stubbornly insisted on sticking to his "system" so that the onus was on Carmelo, whose skiils aren't well-suited to that "system", if things didn't work.

And it's not as if Carmelo was some bum. He is in his prime and he's among the top 5 players in the league in scoring ability.

To me, it would be like a baseball team trading for a pull-hitting slugger and the manager insisting that he try to hit line drives to the opposite field (wait, Jerry?).

The Jerry line is pretty funny.

'melo has even shown some good D since the firing! This team has been looking really good. I am excited about them making soem kind of noise in the playoffs!
