I can't believe D'Antoni is playing Q. He has shown he has no game outside of jumpshooting and rebounding. He can't run the court, go to the basket or defend in the open court. He is too stiff. We need a more athletic player to start. Hopefully Gallo will fill that role, he is a better passer, rebounder, shooter and is much more mobile than Q. The starters should be Jeffries at center (when back), Lee at PF, Gallo at SF, Nate at PG and Craw at SG. This gives you the best run and gun game. Bringing in Curry at C, Randolf at C/PF, CHandler at SF/PF, Marbury at SG and Duhon at PG. Mardy Collins has come of age and can be used for Defense and injury substitutions. Later in the year they will realize he is better than Duhon and Nate and he can start. He is a multifaceted player, intelligent, good rebounder, scorer, defender, playmaker, passer, shotblocker and well conditioned. He is really the PG of the Knicks future, they just don't know it yet. Him starting with Chandler, Gallo, Craw and Lee will probably give you the best mix after midyear. The Knicks have a lot of good players, I said the same last year, and should win 50. Said the same last year but their were injuries, chemistry problems. This year there are no excuses, for me, 50 or bust. Anyhow by mid year, Randolf and Marbury should be more tradeable and the Knicks can pick up some young players for them. I would consider Randolf off of the GS warriors for his shot blocking, rebounding and ability to run the court and score, made to play for D'Antoni. Next up is Dorsey of Houston. This guy can rebound, block shots and is a nasty Rick Mahorn type player. You need guys like that to fill the middle and set the tone. A winner at Memphis who never got near the credit that Rose did but won their consistently. The other guy I would go after is either Saer Sene of the Thunder and/or the 2nd round pick center Jordan of the Clippers. These guys can all block shots, run the floor and bring a different type talent to the floor, very versatile. There you have it Donnie, I did your work for you. Thanks for sticking with Collins, Randolf and Marbury as I suggested. You'll regret trading Balkman, since he is a perfect fit for D'Antoni, running the court, blocking shots(the only guy outside of Chandler who could), passing, defending and scoring off missed shots.

Mardy collins sucks, i used to like him but he lacks too much confidence even though he has all the tools. What a waste!
