The story of this game will be the emergence of Wilson Chandler.
What's happening with the Knicks is what must happen - the old guards giving way to the new. Collins looked like the point guard of the future. Stephon, if he stays, must move to the two. Chandler is our SF candidate, not Balkman.
Crawford needs to move to the deep bench.
Look for lineups of Randolph, Lee, Chandler, Marbury, and Nate to get the Knicks going again with Curry, Jones, and Balkman supplying energy off the bench.
I expect Rose and Crawford to get shopped hard.
Curry plays better next to Randolph. As a standalone center, he knows not what to do. He was better with Tyson Chandler as well - a complementary big man, not a superstar.
I can't help but wonder if Crawford and Lee's poor play is not playing possum to dodge trade bullets. Spree did the same thing years ago.
I'll be surprised if Marbury moves.
I miss Larry Brown.

Here, dear readers, is the final resting place of all weary Knicks fans. Yes, here is where one comes when James Dolan extends yet another contract, when the Knicks trade for yet another ambulatory star, or when said fan simply hits 'rock' bottom. In short, "the ship be" eternally "sinking" here. Welcome aboard, rearrange the deck chairs as you please.
