drummond is a good passer, good defender, has a very soft touch around the rim, and is still SO young.

meh...i mean, it's close. i'd be good with either. biyombo/drummond frontcourt would be very good defensively and, in a couple of years, offensively as well.


idk man i dont believe in that front court offensively now or in the future. MKG infuses the entire team was a great work ethic though..can't be understated in a place with such a losing culture.

Yeah it's pretty ridiculous that after such a hot start we've gotten off to playing against competitive teams.. The Nets are barely a few games behind us.

This is not championship basketball. Go ahead and run with Miami and watch what happens to you.

Not for long. We have an easier stretch and they should go down quickly. I don't believe in them.

i agree mkg's work ethic is infectious. i just think that frontcourt has more potential. biyombo showed some legit post up skills last year (in glimpses) and drummond has also shown that in the past.

i'm curious to see what the bobcats do with hendo. a taylor/mkg 2/3 is legit.

Oh I don't either. It's just funny that you can look at the standings and see they're only 1 game behind and yet clearly don't look like a team on our level. they got Lakers, Clippers, Knicks Celtics again, Miami OKC upcoming. We'll see for sure.

6 assists for Kobe.

he only need 4 more and 3 boards to have a triple double IN THE HALF.

40 points in the first Q? Dantoni already implementing his stuff..

By the box score, looks like Lin still struggling

lin keeps blatantly calling for the ball at the 3 pt line. it's coming off as facetious.

I'm watching and yes he is. I think he's conceding to much of the ball handling to James Harden. Most PG's I watch even Prgioni run down and demand the ball so they can set up the offense. Lin just sits back and watches while James Harden creates.

His shot is still off, but 6 assists isn't bad, especially considering how low his usage is.

Lin just went to work on that last play. He needs to demand the ball on offense.

Return to New York Knicks
