Coach Thomas has to go, the players he have are not hearing what he is saying. Come on MR James do some thing about this I'am tied of not seeing you guys on T.V. find some one that cares about his players and the team, not some one that cares about his self. Please fix this team before he put you and the team in Bankruptcy, I hope MR Thomas is not there on draft night. We have some good players but some of the need to lay off the BBQ Sandwiches,

Nice to see Balkman has a good attitude, something that will make him a good team player no matter where he plays. I think it probably is as Isiah says...just nagging injuries, he is a player who needs to run his motor at 100 percent since a lot of his scores, blocks, rebounds come from the extra effort he gives when he is healthy. Hopefully he can pick up some as he waits for his injuries to heal and be the great defender he has shown that he can be when he is healthy. He is a crowd favorite along with Lee and Robinson for their hustle. Hopefully the youger guys can learn from his patience, attitude and work ethic.

Good article, I always wondered why Balkman wasn't playing more.

What's so good about the article? We get IT's usual spin, and Balkman's canned answer, and no probing by the reporter. Not exactly revealing stuff.

Balkman has to be admired for his hustle, but will never have an offensive game and is a liability at the free throw line. The Knicks should have drafted the UConn guard (Williams) like the fans wanted. If they had also taken Bynum instead of Frye, they would now have legitimate prospects at both point guard and center.
