    To be fair Prince was just on fire that game. Gallo made him take tough shots all game with a hand in his face and Prince was still draining them. This team just needs time and a true 3 pt specialist who can drain open 3s cold, we don't have that guy, all of our guys are rhythm shooters who need to get on a roll to drain open 3s, that's why we're not seeing Gallo drive as much as we should be having him.

      I'm warming up to Fields. I like him more as a bench guy though, not a starter.

      We have a team with one star and a bunch of good role players. We're 1 player away from being a very good team.

      The problem I have with getting Melo is I question how effective our team will be with 2 stars in the front court, especially considering both are somewhat of a liability on the defensive end.

      The winning formula is usually 1 inside guy, 1 outside guy. In terms of chemistry, we're actually better off going after Chris Paul but I know that's not realistic.

      I honestly hope we don't trade for Melo, but instead wait until he's a FA and just sign him. That allows us to shop Gallo for a backcourt piece to the puzzle.

      Of course, if the only way of getting Melo is by trading for them, then we have to do it. As much as I question the chemistry of the move, when you get a chance to get a player like Melo, you go for it. You can always move him in the future for perhaps a star backcourt player later on. You can't trade chips until you get em.

        I'd be crazy enough to get Melo, then trade him for Chris Paul/Deron Williams, but I know a trade like that is unrealistic.

          Fields is one of my favorite Knicks right now. Gallo, Fields, Amare and Turiaf are my 4 favs right now. Amare's powerful ogre of a man and the other 3 are so smart and do such a great job of doing whatever they can to help. I think if we could pull of something like Felton, AR/Chandler + picks for Chris Paul we'd be a team that could beat anyone.

            For me, its

            1. Amare
            2. Felton
            3. Chandler
            4. Turiaf
            5. Fields

            Sometimes I feel like we underrate Felton. He's no Chris Paul, but the guy is pretty decent, and he is developing chemistry with Amare. I'd move him in a heartbeat if it meant getting Paul, but realistically, I won't lose any sleep over having Felton as our PG. He's not bad at all.

            As crazy as it sounds, the Knicks initial plan of getting Joe Johnson with Amare wasn't so crazy after all. We need a shooter at SG, and he was it. Plus we still would have enough to get Melo.

            PG: Felton
            SG: Joe Johnson
            C: Turiaf etc
            PF: Amare
            SF: Melo

            When you look at that lineup, it's actually pretty damn good. Bc everyone would know their role. Melo would be the unquestionable #1, Amare would be the unquestionable #2, Johnson the #3, and Felton would dish it out to all of em.

            Plus we would keep a healthy bench.

            Just the thought of giving Joe Johnson 100 million bucks would drive me nuts though. But in hindsight, it wasn't so crazy after all.

              Felton is doing a pretty good job. I think one more thing they could use is a good passing center. That way, after he gets the rebound, he can pass it out to start fastbreaks.

                aka we need a healthy Turiaf.

                My issue with Felton is that he starts pressing and gets sloppy, plus he's another streaky shooter on a team full of streaky shooters.

                  Hard to find a good center. You guys lucked up with Noah. He wanted to be a Knick too, he was from the area.

                  Oh well, what can ya do.

                  I'm hoping we can develop Anthony Randolph into a shot blocker/rebounding Center/PF guy to compliment Amare. Maybe he can be our new Marcus Camby.

                  It's gonna take time and patience, but he is young, so who knows.

                    I don't see AR having the mentally toughness to play center. He's more of a forward anyway since it's his quickness that makes him a special prospect. Personally I think having Turiaf teach Mozzie is a good set up. Moz has great potential, a nice stroke and good work ethic. If Turiaf can teach him to pass and stay out of foul trouble we've got our Center OTF.

                      Randolph is young. Give him time. He's already a good rebounder and he has the length to be a good shot blocker.

                      At the very least I'm hoping he can provide quality defense off the bench in time.

                      But right now he's just way too raw to see any time. He's pretty terrible right now.


                      I like our Center by committee approach right now.

                        Yeah, I'm content with our front court right now. All we need is a real 3 point sniper, *crosses fingers on buike*. I think that'll help dougie as the backup point to. Cause that kid's confidence is shot and him taking so many 3s isn't helping. Maybe with Buike there he'll feel less pressure to launch up 3s and get his midrange game going again, which hopefully would get his confidence back up which would get him back to being really hounding on D and be more of a point guard than shooting guard on O.

                          Amare is really beasting it lately. I think he's finally found his groove with our team.

                          I'm diggin it. We should be a playoff team this year. I'm excited.

                            Yep. Dude is a stud. He and Felton are pretty much money so far. A lot of people thought Amar'e needed Nash to survive but clearly that's not even remotely close to being true. The scary thing is Amar'e looks better on the defensive end too. He'll never be elite but when he's not in foul trouble he's pretty aggressive and has been blocking the crap out of everything this year.

                            Great win on the road against a good Hornets team though.

                              I still think he's better than Bosh. I love his improvement on the defensive end. He's still a work in progress there, but you gotta love the improvement.

                              We're a good team. It's been sooooo long since I could say that.

                                Yeah. I like Amar'e a lot more than Bosh of a number of reasons. Maybe it's just because I love super athletic players like Amar'e, haha.

                                It's so strange watching them be good now. They go up in games on the road and at home and I keep waiting for them blow it. I guess that's what happens when you grow up watching a pretty bad Knicks teams your entire life.
