  • Great streak for the Knicks, but the lack of front court players is really alarming. What the heck is going on there? Chandler, Stat, Martin, Camby, Thomas and Wallace! Six freaking front court players all with significant injuries!

    And I don't even understand how the heck Camby got hurt since he wasn't even playing. There's no way this team is gonna get by in the playoffs without any big bodies.

    The biggest worry is that you dont even see any updates on the status of Sheed, Camby or Thomas, it's a complete mystery when/if any of these guys may return.


    IMHO, they need to bite the bullet and release one of the older guys and bring in a young big body. Use these last few games to get the guy acclimated to the team so he can play some type of role in the playoffs in case none of these other guys are ready.
    All Hail The New York Giants!!

    • So, just for kicks I looked up what's out there in terms of bog body players. No surprise there's not much. One guy that seems available is Troy Muphy, formerly from the lakers, who at least has played this year.

      Other guys available are Shawne Williams, Sheldon Williams and Yi Jillian. Yi is horrible, but he is a big that can shoot from the outside.

      IDK, just looking at what options the team may have. I just can't see them going into the playoffs with just a banged up chandler as their only big man.
      All Hail The New York Giants!!

          I think so 2 the injuries have been ridiculous. Marcus Camby has been injured the whole year without playing. Could U imagine if they had a full roster. All those quality bigs to throw out there. Instead we have 3 and 2 of them probably are done for the rest of the regular season. Even when things are at their best for the Knicks everything still sucks it just cant be good news ever

          • Congrats NYK on the Atlantic crown, but I have been crying all season about the Front Court and over-reliance on the J's...

                Have to hope they stay hot no 1 is coming off the street to give them an inside game. Just have to pray Kenyon and Chandler get healthy. Would love to see 1 more guy Wallace,Amare, or Camby get healthy as well. If we get the Pacers in the 2nd round it will be hard to win with so few big bodies. I think we are going to avoid the Bulls who were the 1 team that could of given the Knicks fits inside

                    Kurt Thomas most likely.

                      Kurt Thomas will be released to create a roster spot for James Singleton, Daily News has learned. KT will have right foot surgery next week

                        Called it.

                        Anyway, rest Martin and Chandler for the playoffs. Hopefully Sheed can return.

                        • Singleton averaged 8 and 7 in 21 minutes last season with a 20 per rating in 12 games with Washington. I would take that in a second

                            sounds productive, plus he's a younger body too. Hope he meshes quickly.

                              Not really, hes 31yrs old, but ya, compared to Kurt Thomas, hes young... Hes got the ability to step out and drain a long one, as well as being a big body to bang inside for rebounds... I like it for a depth pickup...

                              • You guys are gonna love James Singleton if he brings the same heart, hustle and intensity he brought to the Wiz for the 2 seasons he was with us. He maybe slightly older at 32 but his motor is still top notch and him playing overseas in China has helped his perimeter game. Expect hustle, rebounding, intensity, toughness and an occasional 15 footer.

                                Why did Singleton not re-sign with the Wiz? Our GM is Ernie Grunfeld, what do you think? Singleton was loved by all of us on the board and would've been exactly what we needed to work the young players we have but I guess the Wiz FO couldn't guarantee him minutes which is absolute garbage cause 20 mpg from Singleton would've really helped us this year!!! Singleton didn't wanna be a 12th man on the bench for the Wiz when he could get big PT in China
                                quote from a wizards fan on realgm. sounds like a great hustle/energy guy.
