The Hawks will make the playoffs over the Knicks I guarantee it.
They have players like Al Hartford that will rebound and defend.

Only if Nate scores over 50 points in a game or dunks on a player taller then him, i'd rock his pic in an avy.

***GREAT READ ON DAVID LEE***

Donald Christopher
November 4, 2007

"There is in this world no such force as the force of a person determined to rise."
-W.E.B. DuBois, writer



If the outcome of a basketball game came down to one last gasp, David Lee would most likely not be the one you'd want taking a desperation jump shot. He also doesn't have a bread-and-butter post move. If his team, the New York Knicks, needed a defensive stop to a.ssure victory, chances are that Lee would not be the player to provide it. In fact, Lee may never attain the skillful perspective necessary to fulfill the grand hoop ideology that many NBA fans share. He is not a pure shooter. His defense rivals that of a criminal suspect caught at the scene of the crime. His ballhandling, footwork, and quickness are nothing to write home about, but do not allow the lack of visual excitement to sideswipe you into thinking number 42 is of minor importance. Similar to NBA gunner Michael Redd and shotblocker Marcus Camby, the hardwood fingerprints of David Lee speak of major impact. a.ssistant coach Michael Malone says, "New Yorkers will love him because he's blue collar all the way. Plays hard every possession, doesn't take any time off when he's on the floor. He can run the floor, he rebounds, does all the dirty work. He's going to be a crowd favorite because they're really going to appreciate how hard he plays."

At 6' 9" and 249 pounds, 24 year old David Lee is hardly a stiff or a bum. His play is urgent and gets right to the point. To observe the third-year player in action is comparable to the watched plight of a hero desperately trying to save innocent children trapped inside a burning building. The task must be completed. Both missions give the impression that nothing is being withheld. Everything physical, mental, and emotional is being exhausted. It is a view punctuated by Lee's outstanding Player Efficiency Rating, a formula that ESPN Insider John Hollinger developed as a complex measure of player production.

Inside fabled Madison Square Garden, home of the hailed Knickerbockers, that output carries a double message. Not only does it capture the staunch imagination of die-hard fans born from an era when another power forward by the name of Charles Oakley brought intensity and determination, but it also pays homage to the passionate soul which continuously defines the true grind of Knicks basketball. When you think of the endless history of successful players who wore the orange and blue, their success began and ended with the all-out sensibility engraved into the admirable play of Lee. In the words of a.ssistant coach Herb Williams, "David Lee is a worker. He's a guy you put in the game [to be] your blue collar worker. He's gonna rebound the basketball, he'll f!ght guys for you, he's gonna battle. He's a guy that you need on the team; you need those guys on the team who are going to f!ght every minute on the court."

Not too much was expected when the Gator from the University of Florida was selected with the 30th pick in the 2005 NBA Draft. Many New Yorkers wondered who was David Lee and what exactly could he bring to the team. One would also be hard-pressed to name the last time team president Isiah Thomas drafted a white player. What did Thomas quietly regard in Lee that allowed the adept drafter to venture beyond his normal routine? Whatever it was, that decision became one of the best that Thomas ever made.

Like participants in an AOL chat room, Knicks fans are often guilty of giving higher than deserved praise to young players. As a Knicks fan, I can admit it. We do it all the time. So much, in fact, that a fair gauge of the team's young talent can no longer be determined. But David Lee is the exception. It is a notion recently enforced when Isiah Thomas let it be known that his mother did not raise a fool by publicly a.ssuring that David Lee would not be included in any trade scenario which could possibly land Queens native and St. John's alumni Ron Artest in a Knicks uniform. Say what? You wouldn't trade David Lee for Ron Artest? This is the Ron Artest who is an All-Star caliber player specifically known for his considerable defensive ability. He addresses an area in which the team sorely needs to strongly develop. You seriously wouldn't trade David Lee for Ron Artest? And you'd still have the nerves to claim intentions on bringing a championship parade to The Big Apple? How?

It's simple. For all the positives that bad boy Artest brings, they do not outweigh the negatives. It is the complete opposite of the consummate team player in David Lee. For the sake of argument, let's say Thomas agreed to ship Lee to Sacramento, and once in New York, Ron Ron decided to flip out (again) on a boisterous Garden crowd of Knicks fans upset with the trade from Day One.

Die-hard Knicks fans. At Madison Square Garden. In New York City. Media magnet of the world New York City. Center of the universe New York City.

Both Artest and Thomas would be buried alive while David Lee would be out in clear, blue, sunny-skied California getting ready to do his next big photo shoot in a long line of big photo shoots. Everyone would wonder what could Isiah Thomas have been thinking -- a question, by the way, nobody bothers to ask Artest anymore. As bad as Thomas probably wants and needs Artest in New York, it should never be at the expense of a player who leaves it out on the court.

Not leaves the court.

Again, Mary Thomas didn't raise no fool.

Knicks fans absolutely love David Lee. Fan and media friendly, the personable young man offers a sigh of relief for a growing number of NBA aficionados discontent with overly arrogant players who act as if they are God's gift to the league. Instead of the all-too-common, seemingly-absent-of-gratitude, prima donna attitude, Lee is a genuine professional. A hard worker, he sacrifices his body in order to do whatever it takes to give his team a chance at success. Whether that self-surrender involves consistently f!ghting for the rebound, diving on the floor for the loose ball, or getting the Garden crowd exhilarated through his stellar effort, Lee possess loyal identities in an era of unprecedented turmoil and temptation when pro athletes brawl with ticket-buyers, inject steroids, and partake in other illegal and immoral activities. Meanwhile, David Lee is having fun without the baggage: "I enjoy it because I love New York and I love playing here."

Despite his stellar blue-collar approach, David Lee cannot escape the conviction of critics; the ones who are not completely sold on Lee. Critics indicate that since he has no true offensive game and average defensive presence, Lee is, and will never amount to anything more than a glorified role player. In light of their snide statements though, these non-believers are first to admit that every NBA team need such a player. Critics argue that for all the "second coming" appraisals, Lee isn't even a starter on a team with a 56-108 record over the past two seasons. They ask how good can the kid really be if there are no major minutes to be had. Certainly the team could have used him more.

Admittedly, there are weaknesses in Lee's game. Key points which must be improved upon before the comparisons to Charles Oakley can draw more than the usual subtle response. The hard-nosed rebounding is already there. Lee is an incredible rebounder who ranked amongst the league leaders at 10.4 rebounds per game last season. It is a number even more incredible when you consider he only averaged 28.7 minutes per game. In comparison, Kevin Garnett, who led the NBA in boards, grabbed 12.8 rebounds in 39.4 minutes. In games which Lee had similar minutes, he recorded rebound performances of 16, 19, and 20. No wonder the burning question heard around the league last season was, "Why isn't David Lee in the starting lineup?"

Irresistibly drawn, Knicks fans have formed an almost cult-like following towards Lee. The fans adamantly state how he is off-limits to any trade talk that doesn't include the likes of Kobe Bryant, Jesus Christ, or God. It is a pride implicit of the way hoop fanatics feel towards the franchise player of their favorite NBA team, not a reserve player. To his credit last season, Lee was a strong candidate for Sixth Man of the Year before an ankle injury sidelined him after 58 games. Lee also won MVP of the 2007 Rookie-Sophomore Challenge where he posted 30 points, 11 rebounds, and four a.ssists on perfect 14-of-14 shooting. Both are optimistic accolades which add to his quickly growing fame.

Knicks Get Major Test Against Nuggets Tonight
By Bobby Angel, NYKnicks.com


Nov. 6, 2007
After a thrilling win over Minnesota in their home opener on Sunday night, the Knicks will look to maintain their home-court advantage tonight at 7:30 p.m. against a dangerous Denver Nuggets team.

At 1-1, the Knicks have started a difficult stretch of games with two good performances, losing to superstar LeBron James and the Cavs in Cleveland before coming back to beat the T-Wolves at home. They will now go up against a Denver team boastin not one, but two superstars in Allen Iverson and Carmelo Anthony.

The quality of the opponent is no issue for the Knicks, however, who are determined to play with fire and continue make an impression on their home fans tonight.

"It is always good to win your home opener," said Knicks President, Basketball Operations, and Head Coach Isiah Thomas following Sunday's victory. "For us, here in New York, we struggled last season at home at the start (of the season). The fans were great tonight. They were really supportive."

There's no doubt that even at home, tonight's game against the Nuggets is a major test. Not only will they have to contain the high-octane offense brought by Anthony and Iverson, but New York's frontcourt will also have a lot to contend with, as the Knicks trio of Zach Randolph, Eddy Curry and David Lee do battle with Denver's Kenyon Martin, Nene and Marcus Camby.

Last year, these teams split their season series, with the Knicks winning in Denver on a stunning last-second steal and buzzer-beating three-pointer by Jamal Crawford. The teams square off this season with their rosters drastically changed. When the Knicks beat Denver, the Nuggets didn't have Iverson in their lineup. The Knicks upgraded since then too, however, with the addition of Randolph to their already strong frontcourt. Now the teams face off in what will be a battle of wits between two courtside technicians, Thomas, and Denver's George Karl.

How New York chooses to engage the Nuggets could determine the result of this game. Denver is a high-octane, run-and-gun team that consistently pushes the ball down the floor, attacks the basket and takes advantage of the potent offensive talents of AI and Carmelo, as well as Camby's ability to clean the glass. Camby, averaging an astounding 19 rebounds per game on this young season, is the key, because he is able to run the floor with his team and start fast breaks with his great shot-blocking ability.

The Knicks, meanwhile, employ a strong combination of a half-court and aggressive fast-break offense. In the half-court, players get into their sets, and the guards calmly walk the ball down the court. In this offense, the ball runs through the post and the Knicks take advantage of the extraordinary prowess of Curry and Randolph.

Two plays in Sunday's home opener demonstrated the potential of the Curry-Randolph pairing. In one, which the team employed early on, the ball went inside to Curry, who had space to operate because of the attention Randolph drew from defenders.

If Curry's shot was not there, he tossed it back outside. At that point, by swinging the ball around the perimeter quickly enough, the Knicks can get a good look from outside as the defense collapses on the paint to contain Curry and Randolph.

Another example of the Curry-Randolph potential was evident on Sunday night when Curry got the ball inside and, when the double came, he lobbed it out to Crawford on the top of the key. Crawford quickly shifted the ball to Randolph on the other low block, giving Randolph an open look in the paint for a quick bucket.

In addition to the havoc they wreak on defenses, having Curry and on the floor at the same time enables the Knicks' offense to run through either player. Plays like those just described could as easily have started with Randolph, rather than Curry.

But the deep Knicks squad has another side to its game plan. When the second unit, including Nate Robinson, Lee and Renaldo Balkman enter the game, the tone can change in a hurry. With this rotation, the Knicks push the ball down the court, flying to the basket, often getting numbers on the opposition. This unit pushes until there's no more room to push. Then they push it some more.

Lee understands the role of the second unit on this New York team.

"That second unit of ours, we just try to go out there and provide energy and change the pace of the game," he said.

Thomas and the Knicks will have a choice tonight in terms of the rotation. The Knicks could f!ght fire with fire and run the Nuggets with their second unit or try to control the pace of the game with the first unit and ride the offensive post moves of Curry and Randolph. In any case, there's no doubt that the Nuggets are an elite Western Conference team, and regardless of the game plan, Knicks fans can expect an intense, high-scoring affair.
