Knick Links – Wednesday

Posted By Jordan Lauterbach On Oct 20 2010 @ 4:04 pm In New York Knicks | No Comments

Here’s a little reading to occupy yourself before Knicks/Sixers at 7. Check back to this space tomorrow morning for notes on the seventh pre-season game….

As reported late last night, the Carmelo to the Knicks rumors are back on. The Denver Post, of all publications, has an interesting take on it. [1]

This will be the only Carmelo link of the day. We did something on the rumor when it broke last night and there’s pages and pages of Carmelo to NY links on the web. I’m guessing they all say the same kinds of things. However, one headline from a “competing blog” caught my eye. It read “Should Knicks gut roster for Carmelo?” I find myself at a loss for an answer more straightforward then “yes! absolutely! what are they waiting for!?!”

Since when do the Knicks have a roster that’s full of all – stars? Short of Amar’e Stoudemire, no one is untouchable. If Denver wants Danilo Galinari, give them Danilo Galinari. I can’t even of anyone else that the Knicks are aloud to deal and wouldn’t give up in a heartbeat. If it turns out that the Knicks turned down any deals from Denver in the next week, I’d support a boycott of the home opener….

Surprise! The Knicks just found a center.

Game Story of the Day – New York Daily News [4]

Sports Illustrated’s  NBA Preview came in the Lauterbach mailbox today. Here’s a quick read on what they say about the Knicks….

- SI likes Knicks to finish fourth in the Atlantic and 11th in the East. They actually like the Nets to finish a spot ahead of the Knicks in both the Atlantic and the East. I disagree. The Knicks are still better then the Nets, and this has nothing to do with last night- it’s preseason, results mean less then nothing.

- An opposing scout doesn’t see the Knicks as a playoff team. He believes that their are significant holes in Amar’e Stoudemire’s game, namely shot blocking. 

- The scout hates the signing of Felton. He calls is decision making at the end of games “borderline horrible”…interesting.

- He compares Gallo to Dirk Nowitzki.

- SI has the Lakers over the Heat in the finals….
