I really liked the lineup of Jorts, Balkman, Landry, ShumpShump, and DWTDD. all guys who went to school for 4 years. all about the same age. all smart players, who do the little things. all guys that appreciate hard work on Defense. All guys who are somewhat underdogs, but have had success in the college game. I wouldnt run them out there against the other teams starting lineup, or if they have any big big men... but as a 2nd unit, it has an interesting, blue collar kind of makeup.
I LOVE the idea of Melo as a point forward.
Tyson Chandler is my new fav player on this team. Dude was first one to stand up. He gets it, and I am really so happy he is on our team. And he is only 29... and over 7 foot tall... damn. we have a franchise kind of center here. how did that happen?
I dont have high hopes of winning game 1. I think the C's are gonna be much more prepared, having played together for a while... All I want to see out of the Knicks (besides being competitive) is them having fun. I think that is honestly the key to this season. If they are out there enjoying themselves, there is just too much talent for them to not win. If they start getting on each other and cracking under pressure, this thing can fall apart.
