OK, it's time to play Gallo. The Knicks are not going to win a playoff spot and if they do they will be eliminated in the first round unless Curry comes back and starts to play like he is capable. Gallo is a better all around player than Richardson and he is a clutch shooter. He is one of those guys that just needs to play to figurre things out and establich in hsi mind that he belongs, he does. The Knicks shouldn't be playing Q unless it is garbage time. The players in the rotation should be gallo, lee, nate, chandler, duhon, jeffries, with a smattering of Hughes and the other guy in the trade. The Knicks should play Gallo and Chandler together. They have different styles and can play off each other, chandler at shooting guard, sf, Gallo at SF/SG, Harrington, PF with Wilcox backing up, lee at center with Curry backing up, duhon PG with Nate backing up. Putting Chandler and Gallon on the floor at the 2 and 3 at the same time will create matchup ptroblems for other teams, they will have to worry about a 6'10" guy shooting from outside at the SF or SG position. This will open up lanes for Chandler who is a slasher and also can take the J from the 3. Gallo is a great passer and will find the big men down low and the slashers cutting to the basket because he can see over the top. This will create nightmares for the opponents to match up against. It might be hard to defend other SG's but Chandler has shown he can block shots and play good D, quick feet has he. So let the best players play let the opponents worry about matching up. Are they going to play a shooting guard at 6'5" playing Gallo as he drains 3's....no,,,,then he can drive to the basket when they bring in the bigger defender.

I agree with a lot that you wrote except Jeffries. He sucks. Hughes should be a regular part of the rotation and Jeffries on the bench with Q. Hughes is a far superior defender than Jeffries and he can score.
