Marbury finally gone, Superman comes to the Garden with his first-place team

Fresh off a 41 point game and a dunk contest victory (literally) over Dwight Howard, spark plug Nate Robinson will battle the magic tonight while I’m stuck in my weekly night class.  I’m sure it will be a good game, both teams have new players they’re trying phase into their respective systems, but skip seems to adopting more quickly to Stan’s system than the rusty Larry Hughes or Wilcox.

In any case, it should be a fun game though, enjoy.

Quincy Douby next on Walsh’s list?

I kind of know what to expect with Larry Hughes and Chris Wilcox, but Douby, somebody remind me, what is his game like?  I don’t remember.  He was born in Brooklyn, went to Rutgers, that’s his background, but what about his pro career thus far?  Isola is the source for this next possible move by the Knicks basketball club.

Good to see strong posts on here recently made by quality Knick fans like Starks4ThreeYes, Drossman, Saipanknickster and PaulNoize–good to see you on here guys!

Quincy and Quentin.  Huh…

Here is a quick profile on Douby during his college years where they speculate how he’ll translate in the pros.

and here is one with Douby blocking none other than Cuttino Mobley, the Knick that never was:

On Hughes and Wilcox, plus Nate on Letterman

Yes indeed it is a good day when you can say that bum known as Jerome James is no longer associated with the New York Knicks.  We picked up a few players in Larry Hughes and Chris Wilcox that I am looking forward to watching in D’Antoni’s system.  Obviously we were expecting Mobley to come into the system and produce for the Knicks, but that never happened, hence Larry Hughes is a Knick after the trade deadline.

Jerome James, you are a criminal that owes the city of New York something you’ll never be able to pay back.

Goodbye to Malik Rose and Roberson. Malik, you showed class and professionalism, but not much else. Roberson, good luck to you. Wish we would have kept Ewing Jr instead of you.

One article I read somewhere said something to the effect:  Knicks finally do something for now instead of 2010.

Saw this on one of the other websites, Nate on Letterman.

Donnie Walsh’s New York Pacers?

With the trade deadline on the horizon, the 21-31 Knicks are rumored to be shopping Malik Rose’s expiring contract in order to get a big.

Which big, you ask?

32-year old seven-footer Brad Miller.

Although he is a decent scorer/rebounder, I don’t think this is a long-term solution to the Knicks’ defensive crisis.

Despite the horrible 6-game losing streak, the Knicks are just two wins away from equalling last season’s win total of 23 with about half of the season still remaining to be played out.

The True Litmus Test is this Week

Obviously when you have the top three teams coming to Madison Square Garden, we’ll be able to see just how far we’ve come in recent weeks since Gallinari has come off the IR list and become active.

No, it is not all Gallinari, we’ve got Lee playing well, Nate playing well after crawling out of his slump, Chandler doing his thing and Al Harrington finding a way to add value to our Knicks.

Duhon is a great point guard and runs the pick in roll for the Knicks as good as anyone in recent memory.

Yet with our inspired play as of late, we still will have a tough time hanging with the Bostons, the Lakers, and the Cavs.

Not saying it is impossible, but that staying competitive against these complete teams will be a continued sign of improvement for this work in progress…
