Knicks off season

Thu Jul 12, 2012 1:20 pm

So far so good!
Back in the fold are Lin, Novak and JR Smith.
Camby comes back which gives them great defensive presence and the ability to go really big if necessary.
Kidd is a great signing to tutor Lin and still be able to help the team.

My favorite signing will be Prigioni. 35 looks 25, 6'4" can play physical, a whiz at passing, a good shot and good defense.

IDK about that. I think the Knicks would have been a lot more competitive if they had Shump for the whole series this past year.
Having these bigs will pose problems for Miami. Miami is still the favorite but the Knicks will be a lot more competitive against them.

Rome wasn't built in a day... It did take Miami 2 years to win a championship!

Lin might not be in the fold. Knicks grabbed Ray Felton and Lin may be headed to Houston.

That is kind of funny. Ray Felton is not very good and just a little while ago Mike Woodson said that Lin was his starting PG.

I'm kind of trollnig with this post, but the Knicks are weird and to my mind, dysfunctional.

Jason Kidd just arrested for DWI this morning....nice job Knicks lol

Kidd wasnt really a factor for me, but i agree they downgraded with Felton but probably better off financially (as if Dolan cares about pissing away money)

Felton was great for us... I think he will do well again. Stat needs to go to the Dwayne Wade school of second fiddle and he and melo will be fine. Don't count Lin out... He still might be signed.

Wasn't the overwhelming theory about Felton being great here due to the D'Antoni system?

Like, as is, the system the earned Chris Duhon a fat contract?

And then was nowhere near as effective after leaving such a PG-friendly system? And now is back in a completely different system that is the Ying to D'Antoni's Yang?

Felton can penetrate and play the pick and roll... The P&R is a D'Antoni special but Felton used well will produce and can really get Stats moving. He has been in poor shape which has hurt his numbers but maybe a move back will get him back in shape.

As for Lin Walt Frazier says it beat. worry about the 3rd year come the 3rd year. Stick it to the Rockets as they tried to stick it to NY.

The Knicks are the most bloated payroll per talent organization in the NBA. They were on the right path clearing payroll, then signing Amare Stoudamire. Signing Tyson Chandler was a solid move.

Obtaining Carmelo Anthony was what has gotten the Knicks into the same mess Donnie Walsh dug them out of previously.

Not really.

The Knicks only have 2 players under contract come 2016, Novak and Shump. The players they do have under long term deals are good players.
