The Knicks scored the final 18 points of their game against the Hornets on Friday night.

New York won 113-96 with Al Harrington scoring 28 points.

"Our defense was horrible," New Orleans guard Chris Paul said. "We've had a few games where our defense was good, but not tonight, and it was obvious we couldn't buy a shot."

The win was the Knicks' fourth straight. They hadn't won four consecutive games since Jan. 2-13, 2006.

New York trailed 96-95 with less than five minutes left.

"Everybody hit big shots, one after another," New York coach Mike D'Antoni said. "We were moving the ball really well. We're just playing really well right now."

"I think he's going to go to New York," Magic Johnson said when asked where LeBron James will wind up next summer.

"They're in the lead, they just have to make it [attractive] for him," Johnson said. "LeBron will come to New York if he knows they're gonna win .... So, if they sign a free agent first, that would probably seal the deal, I believe. They should have somebody else on their radar to make him want to come."

Johnson advises a pairing with a free-agent other than Dwyane Wade because he does not believe two superstar wing players can share the ball.

"He could really be a 'King' if he could revitalize the Knicks," Johnson said. "You got some of the best basketball fans in the world, and now you could be responsible for bringing a championship back to New York. Now, it's gonna take a few years, because you still gotta add more pieces. He's got more talent in Cleveland, but he can do more incredible things in New York."

Johnson thinks James should sign a short-term contract to keep his options open for the future.

"I would say for [James], and knowing what he wants to accomplish, if he said he wants to be a billionaire, or close to it, you gotta go to New York," Johnson said. "And I would tell him this: 'Wherever you go, sign for three or four years, and then look at the situation. If you don't like it, you could go somewhere else.'

"I think he's looking at the Knicks very, very hard. He really probably wants to go to New York, but I think he's gonna see what both teams end up doing, who has the most talent."

Howdy this is my first post on this thread :)

Don't want to read through everything but I'm going to guess everyone here hates Duhon, Jeffries etc etc.

IMO they aren't part of the future and yes i rather have something else at PG, but Duhon has been playing a lot better lately and he deserves his props for that. Will he be here next year? No, but thats not important right now.

Jeffries sucks but lately his D has been nothing but great and has really been a factor during this winning streak. Steals, Blocks, Charges thats why Isiah got him and its about damn time he started doing it.

D'Antoni rotation was absolutely horrible and disgusting now he has shorten it and brings the right guys in at the right time.

Nate is done as a KNICK and anyone who think he isn't if you watch the games Eddy/Douglas/Landry have already shown they are getting PT before Nate does. 5 years of immaturity has its limits and nate has reached his. No one doubts his skills but he lacks focus and maturity during the game. His benching isn't the reason we are winning but its one of many factors. I saw in another thread saying lebron can dance but Nate cant? Lebron does it before the game and when he's on the bench and winning. Nate does it during games, playing rock paper scissors while on the court, pumping his chest scoring 20pts in a quarter losing by 20, shooting at the wrong basket like its a joke, and not paying attention during timeouts. He's done and won't be back next year.

This year is about the young guys and trying for the 8th spot. We are actually 2 games out now and have a nice easy games coming up. No one wants to see Utah with the 1st pick.

Trading Eddy and Jeffries is a must and Nate will probably be used to move one of them.

Thanks for the invite Drunk :)

Welcome dogman!!!

As you read and post throughout this thread, you'll tend to see where certain posters differ from each other. We all got our different opinions, but we all want to win. Just stay active and watch out for "Born Loser"...he's a huge Jerome James fan, so his opinions may be skewed

President of Basketball Operations Donnie Walsh has announced that free agent forward Jonathan Bender has been signed to a contract. I know him to be a young man of the highest character from my relatonship with him that dates back 10 years to his rookie year and I think he wil be a fine addition to our team both on and off the court." -Donnie Walsh on signing free agent forward Jonathan Bender

Alan Hahn

We'll find out later today if Eddy Curry's knee is improved enough for him to play tonight against Dwight Howard the Orlando Magic and as AOL FanHouse wrote, Darko Milicic seems content with life buried on the bench as he awaits going back to Europe to continue his career.

Without either, the Knicks will remain undersized up front, with 6-9 David Lee at center, and with little presence in the paint.

Lost in a summer of searching for a point guard upgrade is how they tried to also bring in some size and talent in former lottery pick Jonathan Bender.

The 7-foot Bender, who retired in 2006 because of chronic knee injuries, considered a comeback this past summer.

"My potential is still enormous and I can do a lot for a team," Bender told ESPN.com in July.

Donnie Walsh, who had him in Indiana and gave up Antonio Davis to get him from Toronto in the 1999 draft, figured he could do a lot for the Knicks, especially in Mike D'Antoni's system.

Bender was at the MSG Training Center this summer to work out for the Knicks. According to multiple sources, Knicks team doctors even checked out the right knee, which at the time of his retirement had almost no cartillage left, and they determined he had healed well enough to withstand playing at the NBA level again. On the court, from what I hear, he looked terrific.

Bender has been labeled as one of the biggest draft busts in NBA history. In just 237 career gams, Bender averaged 5.6 points and 2.2 rebounds in 15 minutes per game.

"I read these articles that say, 'He's the top bust' or 'He's one of those guys who didn't live up to their potential.' I don't want to be 38 or 40 looking back thinking, 'I should have done this'."

But Bender, who is now 28 and handled his NBA income wisely with several solid investments, not to mention his foundation, which has done extensive work in the New Orleans area following Hurricane Katrina, decided not to accept an invite to Knicks training camp.

A person close to him said Bender, "wants to be sure 100 percent that his knees will hold up if he tries it."

New York Knicks President of Basketball Operations Donnie Walsh announced today that free agent forward Jonathan Bender has been signed to a contract. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. “Jonathan has worked extremely hard in preparing himself for a return to the NBA,” said Walsh. “I know him to be a young man of the highest character from my relationship with him that dates back 10 years to his rookie year and I think he will be a fine addition to our team both on and off the court.”

The Picayune, MS-native was selected out of high school by the Toronto Raptors with the fifth overall selection in the 1999 NBA Draft and was acquired by the Pacers on Aug. 1, 1999 in exchange for Antonio Davis.

Yes he does, until we decide to officially release him he still counts as a roster spot.

dogman23, I told you to be weary of that "Born Loser"...

I believe Mobley still counts as a roster slot, but should the Knicks want to sign another 10-day contract of a vet min player...hey can file for an injured player exception and would be granted an extra spot on the roster.

As for the Bender signing, no big deal here. Seems as if Walsh is doing Bender a favor with this invite. His contract is not guaranteed until mid-January, so in essence he has a month to see if he can continue his comeback or call it quits.

Bender is a good guy who has done a lot of work with Katrina victims and is said to be an excellent clubhouse type. Sounds like he can contribute more than just practice fodder, but could help guys like Hill, Curry and even Nate with their mental game as well. This is a guy who had all the talent in the world and injuries ended it all. It could happen to anyone.

Best of luck to him, I'll be rooting for him.

You would be right if we got an injury exception from the NBA for mobley then the roster spot would be free but since we got rejected he still counts. To trade a guy he has to be on your roster and any guy on the roster takes up a spot.



The Knicks filled their final roster spot with former lottery pick Jonathan Bender, the athletic 7-footer whom Donnie Walsh acquired for the Indiana Pacers in 1999.
Final as in 15th... because Mobely is the 14th...
