"We need our point guard," Knicks center Tyson Chandler told me following the loss to the Nets. "We need him bad. It's not just because it's unfair for Melo to be distracted with point-guard duties, or for Jason Kidd, at 39, to play the minutes he's playing. It's because we need Raymond. He's our catalyst. Plain and simple. I don't know how any of us could feel differently."


Melo isn't the same offensive player when he's having to "think instead of play," as Chandler puts it. Chandler clearly, isn't the same offensive player because he doesn't have anyone getting him the ball. New York's numbers have dissipated in field-goal shooting and three-point shooting. Kidd's minutes have elevated a bit too much and, as a result, the Knicks appear to be nothing more than an average team right now.

Good article from Smith and good to see the comradeship from Chandler. Absolutely right that we can ill afford to play Kidd so many minutes. Remember when he used to take over games when Ray had lapses?

Tyson is right on the money, as usual...

If we play like beasts again when Felton is back, we all can pretty much kiss Melo's chance at MVP goodbye.

Real MVPs would make that 5-6 record at least 7-4

Am I supposed to care? Melo could average 8ppg the rest of the season and I wouldn't care as long as we won the title.

Still can't believe how bad we looked we Ray out, I thought for sure Kidd had more in the tank than what we've seen. Wrong.

Kidd hasn't been able to break down the D for a while now.

Kidd is a good back up point guard. His own point guard play thrives when Felton is on the floor with him.

its amazing to me how noone has really brought up the fact that without felton this is pretty much the exact same team as last year pre lin when we had melo running point forward and we all know how well that worked out....

I know Felton aint no Chris Paul. But the Clippers looks so bad without a legit point guard. A lot of playmaking responsibility is falling on Blake and Caron Butler. It looks bad.

A lot of one on one basketball. No flow.
