Join the Fanatics tonight, before, during and after the game to discuss the Knicks final pre-season game and the upcoming regular season.
Tonight the Knicks take on the Charlotte Bobcats. For more about the Bobcats, check out the following links.
KNICK NEWS UPDATE: Knicks reduce roster to 15, keep Chris Smith (J.R.'s brother) Toure Murry and Cole Aldrich. They Release Jeremy Tyler with hope of working something out.
Stat looked promising. Still looks like coupling him with Melo is not the move to make. The defense really suffers.
I read something really intriguing about why Chandler is not as good a defender for Woody because of all the switching and moving from the box he must do. Chandler also seems a little winded to me. Or is he not trying so hard?
There is an opportunity for some interesting unit mixes. Woody has better tools to work with defensively this year. I really like Prigioni. He does not play like an old man; an old head maybe. an old man no. He plays with JKidd smarts and within himself.
Artest is very active but he is too old to gamble as much as he does. He plays a lot of his D reaching and running from behind -- but opponents are a little scared to challenge him.
The 2d half was a totally different animal. Can't disagree with any of your comments. Bargnani is not a rebounder, never has been. He probably should not be on hte floor as much as Woody wants him to be, However if Bargnani sticks to the 15-17 footers and actively switches on his man and plays D for short spurts, he could be very useful.
Glad I missed the 2nd half.Don't want to hear any bytchin, don't read any further!
Nix gave up 20 rebs to a no-name guy (Starts with a B) playing big minutes behind starter Jefferson.They gave up a total 19 point lead and a 5-ive point lead in the last two minutes while playing their starters.They lost when they were trying hard to beat a team you can barely name two starters on.That's not an anomaly, it's a symptom.They don't play hard for 48 (They should have won by 15-20) and they don't play smart.No box-out, no rebs, no D, few assists in 2nd half. They did share the ball nicely for one half.Unfortunately there are two halfs in a game.A 5'10 guard from NYC, Kemba is a very, very good player, but still small, small small busted their asses!Tyson is out there on his own (Garbageani had 6 rebs) and we cut three big men who could've helped only to make JR happy.We also have NO low post scoring.If we had some bread and buttah down there we wouldn't be giving up big leads by shooting J after J.
Woodson has his work cut out for himself.He's Old School.So am I.I'm on his side.Bust some ass Woody.
If they were giving away tickets, I would have gone just to check out the new Garden. Admittedly,I would not pay for a preseason game, but I like games better on the telee anyway.
I can't believe people pay real money to watch this.Do they give the tickets away to fill the place?
They are not going to look much better with Jefferson, I think although there interiorD should improve
Knicks keep Chris Smith (J.R.s brother), Cole Aldrich and Toure' Murry on roster. They release Woodson fave, Jeremy Tyler with hop of working something out down the road. http://nypost.com/2013/10/25/knicks-make-surprise-cut-among-five/
