    Yeah, they can manipulate their salary cap in a way to pay 3 max contracts.

    I agree with you about CP3 though. His injuries scare me a little, but for my money he's easily the best PG in the league. No one passes the ball better than him. He can average 20-10 with almost no turnovers, plus he creates a ton of turnovers against the opposing team with his steals.

    I would pay good money to see him lobbing alley oops to Amar'e. Would be a sight to see.
    I hope so. I haven't been this excited about Knicks basketball in 10 years! It's been so long. I know just merely a playoff team right now, but hell, after the past 10 years its a step in the right direction, and something to get excited about.

    I'm gonna go to at least 4 games at the Garden this year. I'm so pumped up to watch them play.

      So apparently I like Fields more than you guys to. I don't think he'll ever be a great player, but he's really smart, plays hard and has a good skillset. A prime around 14-15 pts on really high efficiency, 2.5 assists, 3-4 boards, with good D and really smart team play is a really useful player. That last part's why I like him so much, the kid just does a great job for such a young player at adjusting to his team-mates and helping the team whenever and however he can. I think Gallo's got that same type of skill for team-work except gallo's a much more gifted scorer, shooter and is longer.

        Well that was just a good old fashioned ass whoopin.

        Gotta start winning some of these games. Too many jumpshots from this team. Need to start attacking the hoop more.

          Haha, yeah, I think we're still prone to those. The difference this year is that we now at least have a fighting chance to win most games. Last year it was just expecting to lose and being pleasantly surprised when we won a game.

          I'm not worried about the jump shooting too much. That's sort of our style, but even for us it's still probably too much right now. Really it's just about guys missing shots at this point.

            Jump shooting teams run hot and cold. I hate it. And long rebounds lead to fast breaks on the other end.

            I like our tenacity, I LOVE that we're finally blocking some shots, but we need to attack the hoop more. We have the horses to do it, we just have to do a better job of finding lanes and making that extra pass.

              Gallinari sucks. I hate him so much.


              It's nice to see Amare getting his groove back. When he first came to the Knicks, he wasn't dunking it down like the old Amare. Now him and Felton are working on that pick and roll that he thrives in, and he's starting to show that aggressiveness in his dunks again. I like it.

              And I love how aggressive we are in blocked shots. I feel like a better coach can really teach this team to be a great defensive unit. Amare is so lost on defense, he's good for blocks but he can't rebound for crap and he struggles locating his man.

              But we're getting better. It's exciting to be a knicks fan again.

                Interesting how you only post on nights Gallinari has a bad game, haha. He pretty much carried our team during the road trip. I still (for the 100th time) will never understand how you can hate such a likable kid. Plays hard, a solid defender (he pisses teams off so much with his pesky D), one of the best FT shooters in the NBA. We just need to stop being stupid and let him take the ball off the dribble instead of making him just spot up from 3 all the time. He knows how to draw fouls and with his ability to hit FT's he could easily be a 20 point scorer every night.

                I also don't think Amar'e is that bad defensively. At least, not as bad as he's looked lately. He's been getting into early foul trouble the past few games and you can really see him ratchet back on D once he gets too many fouls.

                  Our problem is that is that we don't have a pure 3 pt sniper. When Gallo's hot he can drain 3s like nobody's business, but he's a rhythm shooter and so is streaky, unfortunately despite that he's our most consistent and dependable shooter which is why Gallo gets stuck watching on the perimeter so much. We need him out there for floor spacing because our guys don't have the chemistry to create that space with off of the ball motion yet. If we had someone like Kapono to come off of the bench cold and drain open 3s we'd be a much better team and Gallo'd be scoring 20 every game.

                  Still Gallo's pretty nuts, even against a really good defensive team Gallo has scored 25 points on 16 shots in 2 games, that's the type of effeiciency that makes me love gallo. When we let him drive good things happen, he either draws the foul, hits the open man or gets to the hoop. I love this kid and BBD is insane for not liking him, especially when he's one of our best perimeter man defenders. Hell Turiaf, Fields and Felts are the only guys on this team that are better man defenders than Gallo, even though guys like Chandler are better help defenders.

                    Our bench is pretty amazing though. We really just need one more star and we could be a really great team. I desperately want CP3. Even more than Melo. He's SO good. Everyone always talks about how great Deron Williams and Rajon Rondo are as passers/PG's but Paul averages one less turnover than them. That's insane for how many assists he dishes out. Paul loves throwing alley oops too and with Amar'e it would be almost unstoppable.

                    Plus Paul is also insanely efficient at scoring and has improved his three point shooting.

                      I'd love Paul, but I don't think there's any way we add him this year and this year's team needs one pure sniper for the bench and someone other than Mozzie that can be our backup Center, I like what I've seen from Mozzie but he's still really raw, makes a lot of mistakes and looks unsure of his hands.

                        I love Amare. He's better than Bosh, no doubt. He's tougher, he attacks the hoop more, he's a better scorer, and he's not a finesse player.

                        If only Lebron came to the Knicks...*sigh*. He had a championship team here if he signed with us.

                        Oh well, we're winning which is great. Amare is coming along, him and Felton continue to work on that pick and roll, and we're on the right track as a team.

                        I just hate how we shoot so many 3s, and how we can't close out games. I don't like D'Antoni as a coach. I think this team has the qualities to be a great defensive team with a better coach. We're tall and we block shots. We should be better on defense and rebounding.

                          We're a pretty good road team too, which is always a good sign for a young team. I really like the development of our roster.

                          You forgot to mention how Gallo closed out that game in double OT, BBD! Hah.

                          We seriously need to get him the ball more. He's so clutch. Just let him dribble to the basket and get fouled. He's one of the best FT shooters in the league. He could easily be putting up 20+ a night with the way he scores and can shoot from the line. Rosebud is right though. We just make him sit at the 3pt line and the times we do give him the ball in non-catch and shoot opportunities he usually scores, gets fouled, or gives it up for an open look to his teammates.

                            Oh please. We went into the 2nd OT bc his dumbass fouled Teyshaun at the worst possible time.

                            I do admit he needs to attack the basket more. Again, it goes back to coaching. I don't like D'Antoni as a coach. I feel we can be a better team with a different coach.

                              It was a BS foul though. In fact, pretty much every one of Gallo's fouls on Tayshaun was nonexistent.

                              I wouldn't underrate D'Antoni though. I guarantee you half of the players on our rosters wouldn't be half as good as they are now if it weren't for D'Antoni. Douglas, Chandler, Gallo, David Lee (when he was here), Bill Walker, etc have benefited from his coaching.

                              He would probably be a better assistant coach on a team with a good defensive head coach, though. We've gotten better on defense though, not surprisingly, as we started to accumulate more talent.

                                Na that was a legit foul. He hit his hand. It was a touchy foul, but thats the home team, they're going to get that call.

                                Yeah, that's true. D'Antoni is a good teacher. I just don't like his style. We rely on jumpshots way too much.

                                Fields is great at attacking the basket. Gallo can improve his game by attacking the basket, Chandler should attack more.

                                We have guys who can attack, but we usually just attack with Amare, and have everyone else sit back and wait for the kick out pass for an open jumper. I don't like it.

                                And we don't fast break enough either.
