I LIKE WHAT I HAVE SEEN THIS YEAR SO FAR..THE HUSTLE, THE ENERGY, THE NEVER GIVING UP ATTITUDE EVEN AFTER ALL THE INJURIES. AND WHEN YOU COMBINE ALL THOSE THREE WITH YOUTH AND A COACH WHO HAS THEM BELIEVING IN THEMSELVES, ALL THAT EQUALS TO A BRIGHT FUTURE..EVEN IF WE DON'T MAKE IT TO THE PLAY-OFFS..I'M HAPPY AND I CAN'T WAIT FOR NEXT YEAR..I PUT MONEY ON IT, WE'RE MAKING THE PLAY-OFFS NEXT YEAR FOR SURE..

What's happened to "untouchable" Channing Frye? Last year everyone wanted him, this year he's practically invisible out there, passing up open shots and hoisting up bricks when he does shoot. If Isiah says Marbury is the only outside shooter in the lineup, what does that say about Frye, who isn't much of an inside player either?

I am glad for Curry that he had a real good game, but he will never be the reason the Knicks dominate, if they ever do. Seven rebounds, half a blocked shot, and a zillion turnovers per game won't make up for 19 ppg, even with a high shooting percentage.

Knicks have two players worth keeping - Lee and Balkman. The rest can go at bargain prices.

The Knicks have a low post player for years to come to build around.They have to get players who can hit that outside shot when they are opened.I will keep Lee and Balkman for their energy when they come on the court.Fyre has turned out to be a bust unfortuately.The Knicks have players they can trade to build around Curry.Francis,Fyre,Rose,James, are players they can moved to get young players who can shoot the basketball.

You forgot to mention "the master of the other team's disaster", Lil Nate Robinson. He had 34 points on Saturday, dude. Dump em all, Lee and Balkman included. All we need is Lil Nate and his clones.

The Knicks can go into the playoffs. If they show a liitle hardwork they can surely be there.I know they are a little short-handed with their top players but Nate, Renaldo, Mardy and Curry has to play really hard in offense and defense.If the knicks accomplish that they can surely be in the playoffs.
