FIrst game V.S. Miami

I must say im more excited with every passing day. As we get closer and closer to the First game against the Miami Heat , I think to last year. The final was 120 to 115 Knicks over Heat in the season opener. David Lee (mvp) had a double double, (16 points 11 rebounds), and from looking at the rest of the stats the whole team really performed well in the First game of the season. It was spread around well and we didnt even have Al Harrington yet. With the addition of Jordan Hill and a cast of other young talented players i feel we are gonna once again beat the Heat in this first game.

Right now the Starters are as follows as of Oct 23

At the gaurd positions:
Wilson Chandler & Chris Duhon

At the fowards:

Jared Jeffries &  Al Harrington

At Center (MVP)

David Lee
To me this is a pritty healthy lineup, and i hope Lee Will be rotating wiht Jordan Hill instead of Darco Milicic .  Im expecting good things from our rookie, but iv been expecting good things from our rookies in the past and we all remmeber Mike Sweetney.

 Danilo Gallinari will be backing up Jeffries, and  Marcus Landry will back up harringtoni like this and feel for what we have to work with this is the best posible rotation we can have at the current time.

Nate Robinson will be sixth man again this year and Toney Douglas will back up chandler, or we could go with Larry Hughes to back up either gaurd postion.

To close I feel that we are still a ways off from where we need to be, but we are definetly headed in the right direction.

My Knicks dream.

As the sun is about to rise on a new season, a dream is born. The dream that iv had ever since i was a child. BAck in those days Patrick Ewing was being drafted and the Knicks were looking like a power house, by consistantly making the playoffs.

As time went on many things have crushed my dreams the biggest being Reggie Miller draining Threes back to back to back. Another dream killer was a man named Michael Jordan. With this all said i still have hope. There has been times in the past couple years that iv almost lost my hope, but i have stayed with them.

When Larry Brown came to town and nearly destroyed my dream for good, i was still cheering for them. i was at one of the last games of that season. We played the New Jersey Nets, and i went to there home and cheered on my team. Even though we lost to there scubs, and they clinched about 2 weeks earlier, and the KNicks had no shot at any thing, i still had my dream that one day we would make it.

When the knicks were eleiminated by the Pistons in the first round one year, i stayed wiht them. when they drafted Sweetny i was excited and ready to make it.

then i realized the knicks never make it. They never make it easy to be a knicks fan. The thing is iv gotten excited so many times in the past wioht my KNicks, that even though now, with this rebuilding effort that we are in right now, i wont allow my self to get excited. I mena i know David Lee is un real; at times, and i know that we got a coach now, and i know there is a long shot that King LeBron James is coming to the garden. i still wont allow my self to get ha;ppy. not till see progress.

REally im just a normal guy at work blogging about the knicks, so im not really trying to make any real poiunt. Juat want it to be known that i have a dream, and that dream is to one day beable to say that i stuck wiht them and that they finally have won a championship.

To conclude, if they go in to a trading frenzy and get rid of players for other palyers that might get us a first round eleimination then id be greatly disapointed. This stratagy had proven it self not to work time and time again. What needs to happen is we need to take our time and let things build naturaly. We need to begin to develope players in our system. David Lee, Nate Robinson, Deangelo Gallinari, Jordan Hill these are yopung talented guys who we vcould develope, and hopefully be peices to our puzzle, leading to champion ship. So lets not go crazy at the thought of Lebron Coming to town. By this i mena lets not trade away all our vital players that we have developed, lets maybe hold off. What would that look like LEbron comes to town and we let go of everyone then what do we have? We have the Texas Rangers. They signed A man by the name of Alex Rodriguez, and they didnt do a thing wiht him and his huge contract.
