    I'm pretty sure a lot of that has to be based on Carmelo's defense. But from my view, he's really a better defender [when's he tries] than Amar'e. Amar'e is a swinging gate on defense. At least as much as Toney Douglas was a swinging date for Rondo in this series, Amar'e during the season was that way every time he got an early foul.

    Exactly. The playoff performance of Carmelo mixed with an added bonus of the Nuggets looking lost without him in the playoffs should put a permanent end to any angst with regards to the Carmelo trade.

    The Knicks have decided to pick up the one-year, $14.2 million option on Chauncey Billups' contract, The Daily News has learned.

    After what Amare did this year, that writer could say such a thing? Who was it? Lupica, lol?

    Picking up Billups means Walsh is coming back and so is D'antoni. Billups is a nice guy and a leader, but I hope this was just bad luck with his injuries and that next year it's not going to be more of the same.

    wrt to Billups. He was a very, very good (maybe even elite) PG in the league for many years and is still a good player. It's just that he's going to be 35, has lost a step and injuries are likely to be more common, not let common as his career continues. Not to mention he makes a pretty fair chink of change. He might even be a good fit for some teams with a really strong half court game, but he doesn't fit D'antoni's style of ball going forward, 3 or 4 years ago sure but not next year.
    Baseball is life;
    the rest is just details.

    Thanks for not posting it, lol - I wouldn't even want to read a word of it. "Some idiot" could describe almost everyone at ESPN, lol.

    I just love Amare - he's not perfect, but I am so happy he is on this team.

    Btw Sheridan was speculating today that the Knicks might consider bring back Chandler w/the MLE, or some kind of sign and trade....and that Chandler really wants to come back here and he might take less money to do it. Supposedly he is very unhappy in Denver....I did notice his playing time has gone down a ton lately.

    They'd still be down 3-2, but it looks like OKC is going to win.

    I could care less about Denver itself....but I was rooting for them to lose due to Karl's comments. You know I bet he wished he had Melo in this series, esp when 3 of the 5 games were decided in the last few minutes. OKC has Durant as their go to guy. Denver surely could have used one.

    I never cared about Denver before, but yes - Karl has ticked me off since the trade. Really, I just didn't want to have to hear how the Knicks made a huge mistake giving up players that the media called mere role players before the trade, lol

    Agreed with the 6th man scenario. After watching Amar'e break down late this year, I doubt they'll go the route you fear.

    Here's some good news.

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/ba...#ixzz1Kuh6SIpz

    As Donnie Walsh seeks to regain full autonomy within the Knicks organization, Mike D'Antoni could be losing some of his power on the Knicks' bench.

    According to several sources, the front office will encourage D'Antoni to revamp his coaching staff to hire a defensive coach. In the past, D'Antoni has been reluctant to seek outside help, most famously refusing Steve Kerr's request four years ago to hire Tom Thibodeau in Phoenix. Thibodeau landed in Boston in 2007, and helped the Celtics win the title three seasons ago. He now is head coach of the top-seeded Bulls.

    D'Antoni is under contract through next season and is expected to be retained after leading the Knicks to their first postseason appearance in seven years. However, under D'Antoni the Knicks have been among the league's weaker defensive teams, which is something Walsh would like to change.

    Memphis assistant Dave Joerger, Orlando's Steve Clifford, Portland's Bill Bayno and Chicago's Ron Adams are all regarded as top defensive coaches. Another possibility for the Knicks is Thibodeau's replacement in Boston, Lawrence Frank, the former Nets' coach. Frank's contract expires this summer.

    A move to hire another assistant does not necessarily mean one of D'Antoni's current assistants will be removed. Phil Weber, Dan D'Antoni, Herb Williams and the highly regarded Ken Atkinson are all expected to be retained. D'Antoni, who is expected to acquiesce to management, has made it clear that he wants to remain in New York
