An ominous series of games is coming up, against the C's, Lakers, the Cavs. Wow, the Knicks just luck out with the scheduling. I wonder what Lebron's impression will be the next time the Knicks play them- "they don't play no defense".

Nate certainly brings an element of excitement and unpredictability to the team. Will the real Nate Robinson please stand up? Hopefully it's the one we are seeing right now.

With Zach and Crawford tjhey could be fighting for a 3-5 seed. the deals for a Tim Thomas straight up for Zach (they probably could have made a better deal for the NBA's top reboounder) and Crawford straight up for Harington would have been there in 2009. this is why you don't blow the team up in anticipation for TWO years down the road. They did what they needed to do and won home games. It's too early to say the P word yet. Especially why Galinari can't play back-to-back games

You mean the Knicks aren't better than the reeling Nets, or the Bucks who just lost Redd for the season? I think they are.

That may be true, but those deals needed to get made. They positioned themselves for 2010. Besides, this team even with Crawford and Zach wasn't winning a title.

So you beleve that a top Free Agent or Lebron will leave their playoff team for the Knicks who in 2010 will be the 9th straight year out of the playoffs??? keep hope alive!
