Knicks will be fine when Carmelo comes back as long as Novak/Fields/Chandler keep playing well. Any double teams for Lin, Stoudemire or Melo will result in shooters from the perimeter being wide open. Novak hits threes like free throws and Fields can shoot pretty well.

Chandler/STAT/Melo/Shumpert/Lin -> freaky athletic lineup

Novak, Fields, Bibby, Walker, Douglas and Jeffries can contribute

Knicks need a defensive Big man off the bench who will just play defense and rebound (Think Reggie Evans)

I've loved the knicks since Allan Houston and Spreewell were a problem. The atmosphere at MSG is amazing, every game feels like the playoffs and you can't help but stay standing and cheer them on.

Im interested to see how Melo will play in the 4th quarters. I doubt he will get much touches since NY has so many more weapons like you mentioned.

NY will be fine if Anthony doesn't complain about his stats

D'Antoni's systems all require a serviceable point guard that can shoot, pass and penetrate.(think Nash on the suns) Pick and roll up top, and spread the floor. Teams will have to double team/collapse on someone which means someone will be open.

Players lose athleticism over time and production drops, B-Ball IQ is something you can't teach and will age well for extensive years.

Greg Ostertag is in the D-league right now after "retiring" 4 seasons ago lol. I remember him being a decent defender with Utah but he's soo slow.

He would definitely help strengthen the front court with chandler. I remember him posting solid 10/8 + 1 block averages on Portland.

The Knicks have a great coach and tons of valuable pieces, it's going to be an exciting post-season (yeah I said it )

But thats the whole point. Lin would have so many options to choose to win the game. So why rely on Melo? if melo can take a step back from the spotlight and share the ball, like I said, the knicks will be fine.

If melo doesnt share in the 4th, then the ball rotation stops and it becomes a half court game in which the knicks system wont last (think how the spurs kept on beating the suns back then)

Dont get me wrong, I like anthony and want the NYK to succeed. But i rather see it with my own eyes than hear it from reports ( in which he proclaims he do this and that)

Carmelo will score on most players one-on-one, throw another guy at him and you're in trouble.


You go to remember that Carmelo is an all star and he will command the defense's attention whether or not he has the ball. He's a smart player if you remember his syracuse days, he would score TONS of off backdoor cuts and off the ball jumpers. On Denver he was giving the reigns as their superstar so you can't blame him bringing that mentality to the Knicks. The Denver nuggets basically gave Carmelo the ball and he could do whatever he wants. Pair him up with a guy that can get him the ball where ever he wants without double/triple teams, Carmelo will score most of the time.

Carmelo is a very important asset regardless if he's putting up points or not. He is one of the quickest forwards in the game and can definitely hold his own against stars like Lebron/Kobe. Once Carmelo gets the ball and penetrates he's an excellent finisher or he'll find someone open for a jumper whether it be Lin, Novak, Fields, Shumpert or Bibby.

The main problem is Amare. He's got to stop taking jumpers, get his ass in the paint and rebound. There is NO excuse for him to average less than 10 rebounds.

You've got a hard-nose defensive minded center in Chandler, All-star calibre forward in Amare, a terror on the perimeter and in the paint Carmelo, an athletic slashing guard like Shumpert and a point guard with a high basketball IQ in Lin.

Success

i think you are missing the point.

yes race is a big thing here, but that's probably the reason why he was undrafted in teh first place. So to see an underdog story unfold and still being so humble about it (giving credits to his team and his belief) after such a hot streak warrants all this attention.

side note...he's always lived in the US...dont know why you mentioned chinese taipei as if he's in a baseball team.

people who actually have something going for them in life probably wouldn't waste time to care about something so trivial. Why does it even matter? seriously

You know what pisses me off.
These types of facebook updates...

"I'm sick of hearing all this stuff about Lin, he's good, but hasn't proven anything"
Coming from people I KNOW who do not watch bball.

It's like wtf do you know? I mean I would say i'm a bandwagoner, but I probably spent the last week familiarizing myself with Lin. I was watching his highlights from early on in the year and he was playing well when he got his shot.
The reason he broke out was because of all the injuries on the knicks. It worked out perfectly.

I think people should give Lin credit where credit is due. The fact is he's in the NBA, off the bench, dropping 20+ points a game, 38 points against KOBE and the Lakers, has completely energized his team, the country, the world, and has lead his team to 6 straight wins. Yet, everyone is down playing his stats.
I mean come the fcuk on. Some people just want to bring people down when they're on top.

Yes, I know he's young and he turns the ball over. But, come on, he deserves every bit of press he's getting. This kid is changing the game of basketball whether you like it or not.

I'm a bandwagoner, u mad bro? I could give a fuck about him being asian though, I'm not asian and hardly know anyone that is.

He's exciting to watch, and the underdog out-of-nowhere aspect puts the icing on the cake.
