New York Knicks

Untouchables: Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler
Potentially on the block: Jared Jeffries ($6.5 million, one more year), no, I'm not counting Eddy Curry
Expiring Contracts: Larry Hughes ($13.7 million), Al Harrington ($10 million), Cuttino Mobley ($9.5 million, with insurance), Darko Miicic ($7.5 million), David Lee* ($7 million), Chris Duhon ($6 million), Nate Robinson* ($4 million)
Prospects: Jordan Hill, Toney Douglas
Good trade partners: Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston, LA Clippers, Memphis, Miami, New Jersey, Phoenix, Utah
Possible targets: Tracy McGrady, Ray Allen, Tyrus Thomas, Marcus Camby, Jermaine O'Neal, Amare Stoudemire, Carlos Boozer

The Knicks have a problem. Under normal circumstances, they'd be a seller, because their focus is the future. The goal would be to shed long-term contracts to get even more salary-cap space and position themselves better in the draft lottery. However, because of Isiah Thomas' stupidity, the Knicks don't have a first-round pick this year, which means they have no incentive to tank focus on the future. At the same time, they need to preserve cap space, and they currently only have enough space for one max free agent.

That means they'll look for an upgrade on an expiring contract to help with the "playoff push," all while trying to find a taker for Jared Jeffries (and, if we're honest, Eddy Curry, though that'd require spiking some GM's drink on the eve of the deadline). This is exactly what they did last year, and they ended up with Chris Wilcox and Larry Hughes, so that should tell you how effective their quest will be this year. They were rumored to be close to a Al Harrington/Tyrus Thomas swap with the Bulls a while back, and those talks could rekindle. Otherwise, they could trade for one of those giant expiring contracts like Tracy McGrady in one of those pointless trades designed to make fans happy. Yippee!

Mike D'Antoni said Monday that he will re-insert Chris Duhon into the starting lineup.

After Duhon's lackluster play, D'Antoni named Nate Robinson the team's starting point guard.

In his two-game stint as a starter, Robinson racked up 13 a.ssists against only one turnover. But the Knicks were 0-2 with losses at home versus the Bucks and on the road against the Cavs.

CLEVELAND - Even LeBron James has noticed a trend with the Knicks that has forced Mike D'Antoni to play master mixologist.

"It was two different teams," James said of the Knicks' second-half comeback from a 24-point deficit in a 113-106 loss to the Cavaliers on Saturday night.

Perhaps D'Antoni eventually will get to the point that he tells his players to just play street ball - call your own fouls, even - because it seems they're better at just playing without thinking. It's the most curious thing about this team: The Knicks seem to get more confident as they are getting blown out.

"Once they see one or two of them go in, they start to believe that they're all going to go in without really thinking," James said. "Some of the same shots they missed in the first half they made in the second half."

D'Antoni has said this about Nate Robinson, who scored 23 of his 26 points in that second half, when the Knicks shot 57.1 percent from the field. Before the game, he said that in Friday's loss to the Bucks, Robinson "was thinking too much. He just needs to be aggressive and attack and go."

The 5-9 guard, whom D'Antoni moved into the starting role ahead of Chris Duhon in the last two games, appeared far more comfortable about doing that with Duhon out there as the point guard. And D'Antoni, who never really has committed to going with Robinson as his lead guard, made note of it after the game.

"I think that's our best way to go," he said of the Duhon-Robinson backcourt tandem.

The two played the entire fourth quarter together. Robinson scored nine points and Duhon had four a.ssists, shooting 1-for-3 from the field. He missed a critical three-pointer that could have tied the score at 107 with 3:11 left in the game.

Although his shooting issues are part of the package, Duhon's impact as the only guard on the team who can handle the offense is likely to get him back into the starting lineup soon. Perhaps as soon as Tuesday's game against the Kings, which is the Knicks' last game before the All-Star break.

D'Antoni said he "wouldn't be opposed" to going with Duhon and Robinson together. For most of the season, he has used 6-8 Wilson Chandler, who is not much of a ballhandler or passer, in the shooting guard role. Chandler scored six points against the Cavs and tried to guard James for most of his 35-point explosion in the first half. D'Antoni benched Chandler, David Lee and Danilo Gallinari for the entire fourth quarter.

Notes & quotes: The Knicks will hold practice a little later Monday to allow the staff to attend the morning funeral service for d*ck McGuire at St. Elizabeth Church in Melville.

Nate Robinson was removed from the Knicks starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Kings. Will he remove himself from the Slam Dunk contest this weekend in Dallas?

The 5-9 guard, who could become the NBA’s first three-time dunk champion, sat out Monday’s practice with a strained left groin, which had been nagging him in recent weeks. Mike D’Antoni said Robinson is expected to be available for Tuesday's game, which is the last for the Knicks before the all-star break and would not tell him not to compete in the dunk contest on All-Star Saturday.

“That’s him,” D’Antoni said. “He has to tell me how he feels. If it bothers him, the best thing to do is to rest. But if he’s OK to compete, it’s a fun weekend, the NBA has asked him to do it, he’s the defending [champion], so I can understand why he wants to. But he has to know his body and know what’s best for him.”

One of Robinson’s closest friends, Nets rookie Terrence Williams, wrote on his Twitter account on Sunday that he expected to find out yesterday “if I’m in the dunk contest.” Robinson has promoted Williams as a terrific dunker who deserved to be in the contest.

One possibility is that Williams could be a substitute for an injured contestant, such as Charlotte’s Gerald Wallace, who will also be in Sunday’s all-star game. Wallace is dealing with with a hamstring injury that caused him to miss a game last week.

Robinson accepted the league's invitation to come back for a fourth appearance in the dunk contest, but sounded like the thrill is gone.

"If I don't win it, it would be good because I don't want to go back anymore," he said on Jan. 18.

I have heard that Robinson planned to involve Williams in his dunk plans. But if the groin is enough of an issue, Robinson may have good reason to tell the NBA he can't make it to Dallas and, instead, give his Seattle buddy T-Will an opportunity to show his stuff.

There are conflicting views on how available Marcus Camby actually is depending on the source.

The Clippers are believed to be looking for a player that can help them in 10-11, or cap space to sign a maximum contract free agent this summer.

Denver and New York, two of Camby's previous teams, are both interested in dealing for him.

GREENBURGH, N.Y. - After only two games, Mike D'Antoni didn't like what he saw out of the Nate Robinson Experiment.

"With 19 wins," he said, "I don't like anything right now."

But he does like Chris Duhon running the point a lot more than Robinson in that role. So Tuesday night against the Sacramento Kings, the Knicks' last game before the All-Star break, Duhon will be back in the starting lineup and Robinson will return to the bench as a reserve.

"We function better when Chris is running the team," D'Antoni said Monday after practice at the MSG Training Center. "Obviously, he hasn't played well, but that's the way we're the best."

Robinson had 26 points and was a big part of a comeback from a 24-point deficit in Saturday's loss in Cleveland. But he scored 23 of his points in the second half, most of which he spent as a shooting guard with Duhon running the point.

In Friday's loss to the Bucks, which was Robinson's first start, D'Antoni could see that the 5-9 guard struggled with the responsibilities of being in charge of the offense and getting others involved.

"He's just better as an off guard than he is at point guard," D'Antoni said of Robinson, who did not practice because of a groin strain but should be available Tuesday night. "I think he understands that and I think the team functions better with a true point."

D'Antoni also included a telling remark among his reasons for giving the ball back to Duhon.

"Sometimes a point guard has to make Gallo aggressive," he said in reference to the team's best shooter, Danilo Gallinari, who is averaging eight shots in his last three games after being in double figures in the previous 10. Gallinari has been guilty of being passive and often has gotten lost in the offense, which is the fault of the point guard.

Duhon has a firm grasp of the offense and has the ability to involve other players, but he has hurt the Knicks with his 35.2-percent shooting and his hesitancy to drive to the basket. He admitted Monday that in the final year of his contract, he entered the season putting pressure on himself to perform well. After he got off to a bad start, he paid too much attention to things being said by the fans and the media.

"At some point," he said, "you've got to look in the mirror."

In the meantime, the Knicks will look around the league for alternatives before the Feb. 18 trade deadline.

Nate Robinson is nursing a groin injury, which may prevent him from competing in Saturday's dunk contest.

"He has to tell me how he feels," Mike D'Antoni said. "I have no idea how he feels. And if it bothers him, obviously the best thing to do is to rest it. But if he's OK to compete, it's a fun weekend and the NBA has asked him to do something and he's the defending [champion] -- so I can understand why he wants to. But he has to know his body and know what's best for him."

I swear, I'm going to lose around 7 years of my life for being a Knicks fan. The stress is ridiculous.

DUHON...WTFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!! :banghead:

David Lee...BOX THE f**k OUTTTTTTTT!!!! :banghead:

How can Wilson Chandler have the game of his life, making some of the sickest moves I've seen from his arsenal...and not get him the ball? This team SUCKS!!!

I love how Hill provides energy on d and was becoming a nuisance on the boards, and D'Antoni gives him SIX MINUTES!!!

I swear, next Knicks game I go to I'm waiting in the parking lot with my Rambo knife and I'm going to Monica Seles f**king Chris Duhon.
