should we risk and keep?

Frank Isola speculates that if Eddy Curry has a healthy and productive season, he could forgo the last season of his contract in order to seek a long-term deal next summer.

Curry has an option that would pay him more than $11 million next season. The Knicks would gladly apply the additional cap space to their 2010 free-agent pursuits.

It has been considered a given that Curry would opt in for the 2010-2011 season because he undoubtedly would take a loss in that season under any new contract. What is not clear is whether the prospect of signing a new multi-year contract would be enough reason to convince Curry to elect to become a free-agent next summer.

One factor that could come into play is the expiration of the current collective bargaining agreement after 2010. A new CBA, one that is expected to be less favorable to the players, will govern free-agency in 2011.

1. ALL EYES ON GALLO

We've heard major rumblings from Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni and his teammates that the time is now for Danilo Gallinari. If there was a microscope on this kid, it just went into high focus. I see a tougher Toni Kukoc and maybe eventually a Hedo Turkoglu type, but not yet ... Definitely not yet.

2. AL HARRINGTON IS READY TO ROLL

Armed with a chiseled body and a positive attitude, Harrington seems eager to begin his first full season in New York. Although at times last year he took too many bad shots, Harrington said repeatedly he is putting the team first. Time will tell about that statement.

3. CHRIS DUHON'S LEADERSHIP

Let's face it, Duhon is a winner. At both Duke and with the Chicago Bulls, the sturdy point guard was a part of winning. Lean and in top-notch shape, Duhon seems primed for a solid year at the point.

4. TONEY DOUGLAS' CONFIDENCE

T-Doug isn't taking a back seat to anyone and has high goals for himself, comparing his game to Joe Dumars. The kid from Florida State has serious bite and could emerge as a crowd favorite because of his pressure D. Most importantly, he's a Stallone fan. When I asked him if his game resembled Clubber Lang from Rocky III, he laughed and said, "Yeah, I like that."

5. A CROWDED FRONTCOURT

David Lee, Harrington, Eddy Curry, Jared Jeffries, and Darko Milicic all figure to compete for major minutes in the frontcourt with Lee and Harrington the only locks for consistent time. Where does that leave Knicks rookie Jordan Hill? Probably dealing with some time on the pine during a rookie year filled with learning the NBA game. Don't be down though, Jordan, at least you're not in Tucson.

Rockets trying to move or buyout Brent Barry.....maybe they keep him long enough and see if they can include that expiring contract when they realize they need a Center and we push Curry onto them in a package maybe?

Darko Milicic possesses several qualities that intrigue the Knick coaching staff.

Mike D'Antoni and his a.ssistant coaches see in Milicic a 7-2 big man who runs the floor, passes and blocks shots.

Despite staying overseas all summer, Milicic showed up to camp in excellent physical condition.

I dont know why, but I'm actually really excited to see Darko play in this system. He looks good in the Orange and Blue to boot. All we need is some shotblocking and attitude!

get the tissue and lotion, LBJ fanboys

During an interview in New York to promote the "More than a Game" movie release, LeBron James said "I'm very excited to be here in New York, I love New York ... you know, couldn't be better than to be in the Mecca of basketball and that's New York City."

The interviewer then asked James next, "And we know you said you loved playing at MSG, how about next summer?" James responded, "We'll see when it gets here, all right," and ended the interview.

An MRI revealed that Eddy Curry has a torn right plantaris muscle that will sideline him for the rest of training camp.

Curry's recovery will only be 3-5 days to drain blood from the area.

It doesnt sound as if its serious....supposedly the tear is an unneccisary muscle like the appendix, but will just need a few days for the swelling and blood to be drained.

I could careless, but we DO need to try and showcase him somehow.

Based on the fact that this year the team shouldn't be dealing with a void at PG and C like they had to last year...and the fact that Gallo is healthy and Wil is a year better...I think 45 wins is reasonable.

I think this young group has a shot at actually making the playoffs as well. I dont want to get ahead of myself of course, because I personally only care about one thing this season and that is the development of Will and Gallo.

But Gallo is a natural born leader and he looks ready to contribute NOW and will only become better as he learns the NBA game.

Another guy who breeds the same confidence and shows the same leadership qualities as Gallo, is my wildcard for this year...Toney Douglas. He's a 4th year senior who led the ACC in scoring as well as winning the ACC Defensive Player of the Year. He's 23 already, but has the looks as a guy who can step in right away. He is the guy that will prove why management has soured on Nate Robinson. He is a MAN who embodies what NY basketball is all about. I see him being our starting PG of the future, especially since a LeBron would be our primary ball handler).

LeBron says he aint leaving to a team that "dont play no defense". Well guess what, D'Antoni has stressed that he wants to be in the Top 15 in overall defensive categories this season. I remember a guy who coached the "Showtime Lakers" who was said to be an offensive genious while lacking on the defensive end. His name was Pat Riley!

I'm really excited for this season and I think we could sneak up on some people. But we cant lose sight of our primary focus. And that is to bring along these young guys while showin LeBron (and other prospective FA's) what this team is all about.

David Lee, 26, is one of six Knicks who will become free agents on July 1 and yet he seems to be the only one the Knicks are committed to re-signing. In fact, Lee was told as much after agreeing to a one-year deal with the club last week. "It was said point blank that they are happy with what I've been doing and that moving forward they would love to see me part of what's going on," Lee revealed. "Whether that's going to be in the cards or not is going to come down to salary-cap issues, who they end up signing and what's available. It's been said both ways; I'd love to be in New York a long time and they'd love to have me here." -- NY Daily News

Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni insists that he'll remain patient and positive this season, even if the team struggles.

"You have to have a plan," D'Antoni told the a.ssociated Press. "I would be very selfish. I tell players to sacrifice all the time. If the plan is that we've got to do this, then what does that tell me if I can't do it?"

However, D'Antoni's brother Dan, a Knicks a.ssistant, acknowledged that another rough season would be hard on the head coach.

"If we don't win, it's going to be hard," said Dan D'Antoni. "You can be patient, and he understands that. But it's hard to choke it back. He wants to win, he thinks he can win."

The plan Mike D'Antoni alluded to was New York's goal of signing a maximum-level free agent next summer, namely LeBron James.
