Knicks president Donnie Walsh didn't expect the team to play as poorly as they have this season.

"I don't like the way we played, it was a disappointment," Walsh said after practice Tuesday. "I didn't see the intensity, which you have to have at this point. That has to pick up."

The Knicks lost nine of their last 12 games in January and they have a brutal schedule up ahead.

"I didn't expect this," said Walsh. "If we want to compete for a playoff spot, we've got to play with more purpose, more force and more commitment."

Walsh is talking to other teams about trades, but gave no indication that anything is imminent.

Donnie Walsh considered the fact that d*ck McGuire, who passed away today at age 84, was the man who scouted and pushed Eddie Donovan to draft him in 1967.

"That's a pretty good one right there," Walsh said. "That can keep your job forever."

Actually, it did. McGuire was a Knick lifer, with an astonishing 53 seasons with the franchise as a player, coach and scout.

"He's an NBA guy that very few attain that stature where everyone in the league loved him," Walsh said. "And he was identified with the New York Knicks for all this time."

The Knicks tonight will have a moment of silence before the game and pay tribute to one of its greatest players. A spotlight will shine on his No. 15 jersey, which was retired in 1992.

The team is in the process of having a patch made, bearing the No. 15, for the team's uniform to wear for the rest of the season. There was not enough time to get it done for tonight's game, but the team is expected to have it for Friday's game against the Bucks.

* * *

* - Al Harrington returns to the lineup tonight after he missed two games with a bruised knee. Mike D'Antoni said Harrington tested the knee out earlier in the day and while it's still sore, Big Al can go. The Knicks missed his scoring off the bench in Minnesota on Sunday, when they were outscored 51-8 by the Timberwolves bench.

* - The Wizards will be without Caron Butler, who has a left knee injury, according to the Washington Post.

Mike D'Antoni kept Chris Duhon on the bench for the entire second half of the Knicks' home game versus the Wizards Wednesday night.

Nate Robinson started in Duhon's place and propelled the Knicks to a 107-85 victory. Robinson led the team with 23 points and added 8 a.ssists, 6 rebounds and 2 steals with only 2 turnovers.

After the game, D'Antoni indicated that Robinson could start the next game, which could mean that Duhon has played his way out of the rotation.

Larry Hughes, who had been complaining publicly about his lack of playing time, saw action and had 11 points.

Been a while since I referenced lyrics, Fixers, but this is fitting. Not quite my typical genre, but fitting:

Jesus, take the wheel,

take if from my hands

'Cause I can't do this on my own

I'm letting go, so give me one more chance

to save me from this road I'm on . . .

Mike D'Antoni's stubborn loyalty to the highly ineffective Chris Duhon came with good reason. Duhon running the offense meant D'Antoni still had some control of it.

But what good is control of the offense when you don't have any control of the season?

It may have been a long time coming, perhaps even long overdue, but D'Antoni appears to be ready to give Duhon a turn on the bench. At halftime Wednesday night he opted to start Robinson to inject some desperately-needed energy into a flatline game and it worked in what turned into a 107-85 win over the Wizards.

Robinson had 14 of his 23 points in the second half and added a season-high eight a.ssists. But while D'Antoni admitted after the game that Robinson could supplant the slumpingDuhon in the starting lineup, let's not mistakenly refer to Nate as the "point guard."

What D'Antoni really went with in that second half was a lineup without a point guard. Or one that handled the role by committee.

Robinson certainly did bring the ball up and ran a few plays, but really his role was to be primarily a scorer, which is his strength. What the Knicks can do is relieve some of the responsibilities of being a "floor general" (read: getting others involved) by having other players -- Larry Hughes, Jared Jeffries and David Lee -- handle the offense to allow Robinson to focus on scoring and getting up the floor for some quick baskets.

[One notable statistic from the game was that the Knicks finished with 88 field goal attempts while Washington had just 77. That's a huge disparity, when you consider both teams were very close in free throws (The Knicks had 8, Wizards 7) and turnovers (Washington had 14, Knicks 10). But the Knicks had 12 fast-break points and 15 second-chance points. They had 14 offensive rebounds compared to only four -- four! -- by Washington, which had 24 in Saturday's game in D.C.]

The eight man rotation seems to now include Robinson, Hughes, Jeffries, Lee, Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari, Al Harrington and if not Duhon than rookie Toney Douglas, whom D'Antoni said he planned to give another look. Remember in training camp when D'Antoni toyed with the idea of playing Robinson and Douglas together as a tandem, to wreak havoc as a full-court pressing backcourt that can also zip down the court and score?

Anyway, before we get too ahead of ourselves, let's acknowledge that for 24 minutes against a very weak defensive team in the Wizards everything seemed to work nicely. We've seen this before, of course, so you can understand D'Antoni, though relieved to get a win after three straight L's (and two alarmingly lackluster performances over the weekend), sounded extremely hesitant as he talked about his latest smoke-and-mirrors tactic.

"I've been on that limb a few times," he said, "and it was sawed off."

Hughes was certainly pleased to finally get minutes again and seemed to do so at the expense of a big: rookie Jordan Hill (DNP-CD). Hughes played 18 minutes and scored 11 points and looked effective on defense like he did in December. After a month of complaining and days after he said he was looking forward to Feb. 18 (the trade deadline), Hughes seemed satisfied again. And he explained his frustration a lot better this time around.

"The reality is I get paid a lot of money [$13.6M] and I want to earn it," he said. "I want to be ran until my tongue's hanging out. That's how I am. When I don't get the chance to play, it just frustrates me."

D'Antoni promoted the notion that he doesn't pay attention to the media-driven controversies, such as Hughes widely-reported dissatisfaction with not playing and direct and public criticism of the coach.

"I don't hear the chatter, I don't listen to the chatter, I don't really care about the chatter," D'Antoni said. "I understand the frustrations, but I'm just trying to put the best guys on the floor. I'm not going to get it right all the time, because I don't have a crystal ball. But the intent is to see how good we can play. [Hughes] was working, he practiced. I thought he had a good practice yesterday. I thought we needed something, obviously. You keep losing, you got to change something up."

There are 36 games left in the season, with three to go before the all-star break. The Knicks (19-29) still need somewhat of a miracle -- or misfortune for Miami, Chicago or Charlotte -- to get a playoff berth. But D'Antoni seems to have come to the conclusion that there is nothing more to lose, other than his team. So with seven expiring contracts all with personal agendas (admittedly or not), he seems to be ready to let go of the wheel and hope that those agendas can somehow work congruently.

Really, with the Knicks expected to do very little, if anything at all, by the trade deadline, what other option does D'Antoni have at this point?

Meanwhile, Duhon took the benching -- and the potential demotion from the starting lineup, with a twinge more professionalism than some of his other teammates throughout the season.

"Whether you're starting is not the biggest thing in the world," Duhon said. "It's all about wins."

* * *

* - We heard tonight that Danilo Gallinari was officially asked by the NBA to participate in the Foot Locker Three-Point Shootout. Gallo accepted and will compete on Feb. 13 in Dallas, though the NBA has yet to release the contenstants. Gallinari will be the sixth Knick to participate in the shoot-out and the first since Quentin Richardson in 2006. No Knick has ever won the event. The highest finishes were Trent Tucker (1986) and Charlie Ward (1998), who both finished fourth. Gallo hit four treys against the Wizards to raise his league-leading total to 126 three-point field goals made.

Two teams have reportedly inquired about Bobcats reserve guard Acie Law, according to a source close to the situation that spoke with Tommy Dee of TheKnicksBlog.

“One of them is definitely New York,” and the other team is “an Eastern Conference team as well,” says the source.

The source also believes that “it’s pretty clear” Law will be on the move.

And we all know how Brown has no problem getting fleeced in deals for "his" guys. Jeffries definitely fits that mold. We need to work a 3rd team in this deal though, money doesn't work otherwise.

The Knicks are expected to start Nate Robinson at point guard on Friday night against the Bucks.

"It looks like Nate probably will start as the point guard," coach Mike D'Antoni said after practice Thursday.

"We'll go with the way we finished up the game [Wednesday night], which I thought was good, good energy and then we'll see what the rotation will look like, but that seems to be the plan right now."

Robinson has been in and out of D'Antoni's rotation this season.

"I've just gotta be ready," the guard said. "Just continue to play my game. The basic thing of basketball is to make teammates better. That's something I'm trying to do.”"

With the trade deadline approaching, the New York Knicks may once again make a move to clear up cap space for the now infamous 2010 off-season. Jared Jeffries, who is making $6.47M this season and $6.88M next season, was deemed virtually unmovable at the beginning of the season. New York, however, is in position to grab the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference and the defensive prowess of Jeffries has played a large role in helping the Knicks get to where they are now.

Think back to who the New York Knicks were last year. Granted, they still aren’t anybody’s version of the 2004 Detroit Pistons, but they can actually D up every now and then. They rank 20th in defensive rating at 108.7 points allowed per 100 possessions, a subtle improvement from their 23rd ranked 110.8 points allowed per 100 possessions of 08-09.

Who do you put on Chris Paul? Dirk Nowitzki? The Knicks can actually put Jeffries on Paul one night and Nowitzki the next. He’s a versatile defensive specialist that can guard point guards, wings of various sizes and power forwards; there’s legitimate value in that for a championship contender looking to strengthen their bench. If you’re the Lakers in the playoffs and you’re worried Derek Fisher can’t stay in front of Steve Nash all night, have Jeffries pester him. His box score is far from s3xy, but if you’ve had the chance to watch him annoy opponents you know his importance.

Jeffries doesn’t have the shooting abilities of Shane Battier, but his influence defensively is similar. The Knicks give up nearly eight fewer points per 100 possessions when Jeffries is on the floor than when he is sitting.

Now, there’s even a growing sentiment that Jeffries is too valuable for New York to trade away for additional long-coveted cap space. Sticking to the original script for Donnie Walsh, however, let’s take a look at possible trade partners.

The criteria here is simple: New York will be looking for an expiring contract, while the trade partner must be involved in the playoff race. Out of the 19 possible teams, 11 were automatically disqualified based on needs, lack of matching salaries or their own need for cap space next season.

Utah Jazz: Kyle Korver ($5.16M)

Korver has seemed to have lost playing time since his return from a knee injury recently. Mike D’Antoni’s Knicks could also use another 3-point shooter in their ranks. The Knicks take a huge hit defensively of course, and while the Jazz may not love the idea of taking on additional salary next season, the trade has the potential to give them a better pick in this year’s draft as they own New York’s selection. It’s a potential win/win situation for the Jazz.

Los Angeles Lakers: Adam Morrison ($5.26M)

Morrison serves mostly as a pawn in this trade. He rarely sees the court with the Lakers and I can’t see the Knicks working him into their rotation either, but it serves its main purpose and that’s getting Jeffries out of New York. I don’t think you’ll find many LA fans complaining about Jeffries coming off the bench instead of Luke Walton either, especially if he’s the B team defender for someone like Dirk Nowitzki.

Milwaukee Bucks: Luke Ridnour ($6.5M)

A straight-up deal is more of a pipedream than anything else for the Knicks front office. While Brandon Jennings has the starting PG spot locked up for years, don’t expect the Bucks to get rid of their only depth at the position. Ridnour could be the Knicks answer for a legit ball distributor either off the bench or even replacing Chris Duhon as the starter, but I don’t see it happening unless New York added in Nate Robinson. Robinson and Jeffries for Ridnour and Kurt Thomas happens to work financially and would be a good fit for both teams. Robinson, however, would have to approve any deal he’s involved in first.

Ridnour has had an excellent season, perhaps the best of his entire career.

Memphis Grizzles: Steven Hunter ($3.67M)

With just over three million in cap space, the Grizzles have more flexibility than any other team in the league. Memphis is currently a half game out of the 8th playoff spot in the Western Conference. If they think adding Jeffries could help their chances to get in for the first time since the 2005-06 season, then giving up that flexibility may be an option for them. Hunter has been little use to the Grizzles, but D’Antoni could use a shot blocker so perhaps he will find playing time behind David Lee.

San Antonio Spurs: Michael Finley & Matt Bonner ($5.76M)

Bonner is coming back from an injury to his shooting hand and has been struggling as of late, but he was a valuable member of the San Antonio rotation earlier this season. Finley has had more than his fair share of injury problems as well. Jeffries would fit along nicely when the Spurs reserves come in and could spell anyone from Richard Jefferson to Tim Duncan. Bonner, a 3-point threat, would find time in D’Antoni’s system while Finley could be a veteran presence in the Knicks locker room.

Consider everything from here on out a creative stretch to be filed in the unlikely column.

Houston Rockets: Brian Cook & Chuck Hayes ($5,647,750)

Cook is a salary throw in, so we’ll strictly be looking at Hayes and Jeffries. Their games are actually fairly similar and while Jeffries gives you more options on the defensive end, Hayes is a better rebounder. With that said, this is pretty much a wash talent-wise and the Rockets would be foolish to take on the additional salary and years even if one could make the argument that it is a slight upgrade.

Toronto Raptors: Amir Johnson ($3.94M) and Antoine Wright or Rasho Nesterovic

This deal is possible, but more than unlikely. The Raptors are not looking to do the Knicks any favors going into the offseason as they are looking to retain Chris Bosh. Unless they deem that task impossible by the trade deadline, I don’t see them dedicating any more additional dollars to next year now.


not sure how i missed this one, from Jan 25th
