So whose idea was it to go with the 10 day? K-Mart or the Knicks management? Why not just sign him for the rest of the season?

10 days to prove he's in shape
Another 10 to see how he is in games
Then we lock him up for the rest of the year

... assuming he's in shape (how can he be in game shape after not having played in games for this long?) and assuming he doesn't piss a bunch of teammates and/or staff like he did in LA.

Not wanting to start a thread but anyone want to speculate on who may be available at the March 1st waiver wire deadline?

I like it. Sounds like he's coming in with something to prove. Could be just what this team needs to wake the fck up.

Haven't we had enough of "sounds like..." lately? We'll see if he can contribute anything.

I'm irrationally optimistic about all of this. Think he could be a game changer.

Kenyon was asked if he could still be a "warrior." He put a reporter's hand over his heart and said, "That ain't going nowhere, trust me.

Against my better judgment I'm excited that Kenyon is a Knick.

That's the life of a Knick fan -- getting sucked in when you know better.

I do think he has plenty left and we will definitely benefit from an athletic shotblocker / finisher with attitude and experience.

Call Delonte next, why not.
