Knicks are in trouble…

The New York Knicks, supposedly need to gel, according to Mike D’Antoni. I fear that no amount of time will fix the Knicks woes. The Knicks have absolutely no defense. I mean during The Tuesday night Piston game they made just 4 stops in the 2nd half and the announcer started talking about how they are trying to turn around their Defensive troubles. Mike D’Antoni’s system does not focus on defense, which it should, Mike believes in out scoring all and any opponents. With the players they have you’d think they be able to make some stops. I mean Wilson Chandler is one of the longest and most athletic SG/SF in the east, Al Harrington was drafted as a defensive specialist, Chris Duhan was said to be a great defender when he was picked up, so why do they suck so bad? The answer is quite obvious, they are the New York Knicks. They have a losing persona, and that is not changing anytime soon, even if they get what they want in 2010.
Al Harrington first suited up as a Knick on the 25th of November, His first start was on the 26th against the Pistons. He has loads of potentail in this system, not a bad pickup for fantasy basketball. Another noteable aqquistion will be Tim Thomas. He will fit in great in this system, since he already knows it, all he needs to do is get into running shape. Tim Thomas could be a 20 point 10 rebound guy, so if you need help in FFBB take a shot on this guy.
