My Knicks dont look good but its early...losing Chandler is really going to hurt...hopefully they could hover around 500 until he gets back. They have a bunch of new players, so they need time, I had confidence that they could be a 50 win team, I have tempered the expectations to about 45-48.
The Good -
Hardaway Jr looks like a good player, not shy to shoot, good defensive player.
Shump - Is ready to take the next step.
Metta - Still has something left in the tank.
They are very deep.
The Bad -
Chandler out 4-6 weeks, looked great out of the gate.
Melo - Shooting like garbage
Bargniani - If he aint shooting well he doesent offer anything. Fortunately he had an excellent game playing (gasp) center yesterday
Stat - I really like the guy but he may be shot, and its sad. He doesent have the same hops he once had, every time he gets to the basket he gets his shots block, hes always been an awful ball handler so he is a TO machine. He still has lateral quickness with the ball so he gets to the basket with ease, he just cannot finish.
Woodson has to realize, that the Knicks are best playing small with a 3 guard rotation at times, or starting 2 pgs in the backcourt (Prigs and Felton).
