Landry Fields is playing like a stud. I feel bad that I let him fly undery my draft radar. I will have to correct that and watch more college b ball games. If New York gets Melo and not sacrifice much of their line up that is playing well like Felton, Amare, and Chandler, they could be a top 3 or 4 East team easy.

Sit Gallo

I think they need to sit Gallo for a couple games. So he can get his wrist back to 100%. Cause he's not just off on his shots, hes way off. Hell they'd almost be better off starting Shawne Williams in his spot. And he doesnt play at all.

I agree, the Knicks are

I agree, the Knicks are playing better but this game was UNACCEPTABLE. The Knicks were up 12 and let Portland attack them in beat them. a 14-2 run to end the game is terrible.

Stoudemire had like 5 rebounds. Landry Fields had 11 points and 8 rebounds. To me, the Knicks need to put Gallo on the bench. It's bothering me how bad he's been. He reminds of Peja because he's seriously a Vegatable out there on the court. If he's still recovering from this little wrist injury...sit him. He's not helping, sit him.

I think the Knicks need to find someone they can get TODAY. To me, I'm calling Detroit and offering Eddy Curry and like 3 mil cash for Jason Maxiell and Richard Hamilton. The Knicks need another swingman and a rebounder.

yes

I like what I see from New York. They seem to be a solid rebounding team despite being a small team and they play really hard. I don't like what I'm seeing from Stoudemire though. Yes, he is the best player, but he is going 1 on 1 every time and is being very turnover prone. He also is playing NO defense (suprise). I think Chandler needs to start and Gallo needs to come off the bench. The injury is clearly affecting him and he has very little confidence. I also don't like it when they play Douglas and Felton at the same time because they are an extremely undersized back court and there is little finishing ability between the two. I think they have a real shot at the Playoffs if Amare is more of a team player and if Randolph continues to improve (why was he not playing)?

Actually Amare opened the

Actually Amare opened the game for other players because they designed a defense to stop what he did to Boston a few days ago. Melo is the guy the Knicks should wait on but I would love it if they could do a smaller deal and get Jared Jefries back from Houston who is not really using him at all. Melo would be the perimeter scoring that Knicks need. Melo is the perfect zone buster that would open up the game for Amare. Also Knicks need to rely on their jump shooters when teams go zone and make their free throws. That is what hurt them more than anything else. Turiaf hits one of his free throws and you have a different game. He was not the only one slipping on free throws though.

Also Felton has yet to put up

Also Felton has yet to put up 20 pt and 10 assist like I said he could average but he is playing well and he is getting enough shots to average this but he still is not as familiar with the team and is trying to balance scoring with setting teammates up. I think once it clicks for him, he will be in the 20 and 10 range. A lot of times his passes lead to a player going to the foul line so he gets no credit for those points or lack of considering the way New York has been at the ft line

If Denver refuses to part

If Denver refuses to part with Melo this season before the trade deadline, Knicks should try to get Dalembert from Sacramento because with Cousins starting and Thompson getting minutes at Center and power forward, Dalembert is Expendable. Dalembert would help shore up the Knicks front court and give the Russian time to develop and regulate Turiaf to bench minutes.

Its early, Gallo played like

Its early, Gallo played like 15 mins last night but he took 9 shots thats too many and worse than that he had no rebs, asts, stls. I'd trade him and Curry for Mello if Nuggs would take that. Looks like Nuggs new GM was purposely asking for a lot and most teams don't have the pieces to get Mello or he won't sign an extension with those teams. Chances of him getting moved to the Rockets, Clippers or Nets seems slim. The Bulls deal is basically dead they don't have anyone except Rose, Deng and Noah but 2 of those 3 won't be moved and Deng's contract is awful. Taj Gibson is a decent young player but doesn't really seem to have All Star potential. Mello needs to sit tight just 8 more months and he's a free agent. I'd love for him to be a Knick this year but would rather keep the young players they could be used in trades later on.

If Turiaf hit some free throws and Amare didn't turn the ball over they'd win this one. So far 2 losses in close games in Boston and to the Blazers not bad. They still take too many jumpers esp. since they have guys who can get to the rim. I'd like to see Amare in the post more and taking less jumpers. Mozgov played some good defense but he gets in trouble with foolish fouls. They need Randolph it will help as Mozgov and Turiaf aren't scorers. One thing I don't get is though Amare's strength is driving to the rim he needs to use his post moves the hook shot, turnaround etc. Will keep his turnovers down, this team will do well when it gels. Fields looks impressive not sure how many of you get MSG and get to listen to Walt Clyde Frasier we was really impressed by Fields. Chandler reminds me of Tmac a lil except he doesn't have the range on 3's. The Knicks have 25 blocks in 3 games that was a month's worth last year. Also I know its early but the Rockets are 0-3 looks that can only help us with that pick next year.

For Portland Aldridge impressed me esp. with his play in the post. Roy was great esp. in the 3rd qtr dominating. Still not sure why they traded Bayless the new GM seems a lil clueless esp. compared to KP.

Wow New York your 1-2, way to be hyped 3 games in

Also....Gallo has looked terrible...I don't hear about him being injured...He's trash...why would anyone want him and Curry for an Elite Player...

And Randolph has not played a game and you talk about him like he's going to be a factor...He's a Bust waiting to happen...

Fields has been a shocking suprise but he'll come back down to earth...once the season really starts we'll see how he does...

Shewlton...Ray Felton will never average 20 and 10...do you know how stupid you made your self look...Nash, Paul,Deron and D. Rose don't get 20 and 10...why would Felton??? More New York biases

i agree with scarecrow about

i agree with scarecrow about the felton 20/10 thing. nash in the same offense(as a better shooter and finisher) didnt get 20/10 more like 18 and 11. felton will never come close to 20/10. he could be at best a 14 and 8 player.

and with houston 0 and 3, they are still getting used to the whole yao thing and i think he needs to play 30mpg and sit back to backs. it would help the team get used to him on the floor. but even if houston gets the first pick, ny wont get it. houston has the OPTION to swap picks. meaning only if the knicks have a lower pick will houston actually do this.

also, landry fields is making wilson chandler expendable. if they can give up gallo, chandler, eddy curry, picks(be creative, 2nd round and swaps or multiple team trades) for a superstar(lets say melo for example), this team could be a very good team(still not a championship team). possible lineup:

pg- felton/douglas
sg- buike/fields
sf- melo/ a randolph/ fields
pf- amare/ a randolph/
c- turiaf/mozgov/amare*

*- depending on what lineup they go with, some players will be playing multiple positions throughout the game.

point is, if they can pull of the trade, they will have some decent depth(even tho dantoni like 8 man rotations). but like scarecrow said, is gallo, chandler, and an expiring enough for melo? the answer is maybe, depending on how much pressure denver feels on getting something back for melo.

Trinajoe, I disagree on

Trinajoe, I disagree on almost everything you said.

Felton isin't putting up 20/10 but he's averaging like 15, 4, 6 right now. That's better then any PG NY had since Mark Jackson.

I agree Houston will 9 outta 10 times swap picks BUT I wouldn't be surprised if it's like Houston has the 17th pick and New York has the 14th. Chicago and Milwaukee did that last year and it wasn't a huge blow. I still don't think Houston will be too high up there. I think there's 6 better teams (LA, Dallas, Utah, San Antonio, Oklahoma City and Portland) and then there are teams still there (Denver, New Orleans, Memphis) so time will tell.

Landry Fields has played great BUT Wilson Chandler is playing out of his mind. He had 22 and 13 off the bench last night.

As of right now, I rather do this trade: Eddy Curry and 3 mil cash for Richard Hamilton and Jason Maxiell. The Knicks need a wing and a rebounder. We could get Melo and sell the far OR go for the double and build with the team.

Felton/Douglas

Hamilton/Fields

Chandler/Gallo

Stoudemire/Maxiell

Turiaf/Randolph

Also, D'Antoni is playing 9-10 guys now and I don't expect that to change because Azu is potentially coming back and Randolph as well.

Best 1-2 team with the one

Best 1-2 team with the one win coming against a bad Raptor outfit ever. Ahhh. Just imagine how good they'd be if Gallinari was able to hit the rim.

"they could be a top 3 or 4 East team easy."

Really, you want to believe that one?

Normal 0 false false false Mi

The Knicks chance at top three in the East died then moment your dream LeBron James turned into Raymond Felton and Timofey Mozgof, and even whatever imaginary one-sided Melo trade cannot resuscitate it.

That's pretty impossible to

That's pretty impossible to get melo without sacrificing there line up.  The thing about trades is they have to work for Borg sides not just the fan of one team

I'm not really sure how the knicks look much different then they did last year. Defense still looks bad but is a tad better then last year and they seem to be the same on offense. I really don't see the big difference between Amare and David lee except David lee is a better rebounder.  I think it's in called for for Amare to have 5 rebounds considering how athletic he is.   I would start Chandler over gallo because then you're second unit has no real fire power off the bench so the second unit would get killed.

I had to wait to watch the replay of the games before saying what I thought.  I do think Randolph and azabuki will help when they come back

And although Felton is good he will never be a 20/10 guy. I'm
Not sure why everyone thinks every point guard d'Antoni has will be so much better then they have been before. Nash did it because he's a great player. Duhon didn't all of a sudden become very good. Nor Nate Robinson or Sergio "the deer"  and neither will Felton
