They will go as far as Deron takes them though... and he's looking much better lately. JJ is no real star (though my fantasy team is enjoying his turnaround).
I will not trade future draft picks for past draft busts.
Thank you - Management.

Nets are on a 7 game winning streak and really seem to have matured as a team quickly. Looks like Josh Smith is out, so easy win for the Nets.

Catch me up.. are we still saying that Deron Williams is fat and sucks? I just want to know where my Knicks brethren sit so I look like I know what I'm talking about.

i never said that but actually joe johnson has been the one playing better. part of this is also the surge a team gets after a coach is fired.

There is only a surge in play when a team not named the Knicks is concerned right? Last years 18-6 record when Woodson took over had nothing to do with a surge... because I could've sworn I was the only one who brought up that point last year with a few scattered people who agreed.

I'm pretty certain Johnson's good play has at least a smidgen to do with something the point guard is doing well or differently.

His Jan numbers are bomber... which would give support to any of the following theories:

1. He was fat and has since gotten into playing shape,
2. He was injured and has since healed
3. He was dogging it for Avery
4. Random **** slump

Or any combination of the four.

The theory it does not support would be:

1. Deron Williams is done


Hope this helps.

A little bit of 4... a little bit of 2... maybe some of 3..

Definitely not 1 because he looks the exact same as he always has.

But I thank you kind sir for brushing up my "Knicks fans" talking points when concerning Deron "Big Mac" Williams.

Eh. I thought he looked a lil' chubby as I thought Melo did last year. Certainly not the "50 lbs" one guy was saying. But a lil'. A few things going on for sure. But the "done" talk was silly.

I didn't see it... and if he did put on a few pounds he must have a very slow metabolism.. I mean he played in Turkey during the lockout, London, and went right into training camp. But then again I never thought Carmelo was overweight either. Guys get bigger when they get older.. generally speaking.. unless they have a tapeworm or a freakishly fast metabolism like Reggie Miller does.

Not overweight... but just a few pounds at this level makes a difference. Heck, I even notice rock climbing when I have just 2-5 more pounds that I shouldn't. You don't think Melo looks thinner this year? I really do. Prolly less muscle mass as well as I think the plan was to get him a bit quicker and ultimately play the 3.

Guys just do have different metabolisms though. I could never believe how big dudes like Tractor Traylor and Sweetney got. I couldn't balloon like that if I tried and I'm not doing half the work they are (though also definitely not eating like a pro either.

I think he said he was lighter this year... what I'm saying is that I don't think the extra weight affected him negatively. I've played with a ton of bigger guys who can run all day... you would think they would slim down a bit running that much.. but they didn't.
