Knicks beat Minnesota just a while ago and I actually got to see bits and pieces of the game. Winning is always better than losing but this was another ugly outing. The Knicks should have handed Minnesota their heads - Minnesota largely little more than a team of castaways.
The best player of the game was Lee whose rebounding and intangibles just make everybody look better out there. The most over-rated performance was Crawford's. Yes he got 24 points but my god his defense was just atrocious McCants wanted to take it to him all night long.
The second worst performance was Curry. The man has got to rebound - something he picked up in the second half but he and Zack have to own that paint.
Honorable deficient performance goes to Balkman who allowed Gomes to blow by him at the half way mark - just a dumb play - enough to keep Minny in it.
But it is becoming obvious the starting unit is window dressing - it was not until the second unit came on that the Knicks looked like winners. The Crawford/Curry coupling is bad basketball and Isiah needs to break this tandem up a bit. Or trade them.
My fascination with Curry is just about over. If Isiah packaged Curry, Crawford, and change for Kobe and Kwame, I think the trade would work out fine in both directions. Right now the Knicks "starting unit" is disappointing at best.

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.
