Fixed!

But from seeing the incredible impact that Gay's mere presence on the floor had tonight as they just played the most complete game of the year against the Clipps, I'm intrigued with what Bargnani could possibly contribute as a secondary option. All of Raptor-land have pretty much given up on him, but with a reduced role, he might be better.

Calderon is a good player. I was hoping the Knicks got him for Lin. Well he or Lowry....or Dragic.....heck a bag of Doritos will have been nice.

Meh. Calderon's largely hollow stats. As it is you signed Kidd for the cash Lin left open, I wouldn't complain. Sure, he won't last long but he'll probably have a higher impact than any likely players to go to the Knicks last off season while he's there... Then you move the cash again when it comes up once more.

Oh no doubt...Calderon is definitely a good player, a great person and he's a class act to boot and would be an absolutely perfect fit as a back up point on the Knicks! The knock on him though is that he really can't keep any opposing guard in front of him to save his life and he's getting paid $10 mill...

General consensus is that he's the best/most efficient back up point guard in the league who got to play starter's minutes due to sh***y Raptor teams.

I'm really excited to see a Houston Rocket in James Harden in the All-Star game, especially since it's here in Houston. It has been a while.

Solid team? Maybe 6th-8th in the east...definitely not a contender in any sense. I don't see the point in paying Luxury tax for a first round fodder team.

Clips need CP3 back badly. Bledsoe is a good backup guard but he can't run an offense like CP3 can.

As a Knicks fan I'm calling it right now. We are fools gold. Melo "excelling" at the four is the biggest mirage I've seen in a minute and it shows in the rebounding edge. Playing Shumpert at the 3 is playing right into the Heat's hand and I wouldn't be shocked if we go out in the first. Stat is giving us that low post presence we so badly need. Other teams just let Chandler play alone because he doesn't shoot and again it shows. I think the media wanted Amare to explode about coming off the bench because they wanted Amare and Melo to feud. Melo is excelling at the four no more than he is at the three. His numbers are almost the same from the past couple of years.

Knicks are one team I think that would work better with a sliding starting unit with Melo playing either 3 or 4 depending on opponents with Amare shifting in and out.

If Melo can get away with playing the 3 without being a major defensive liability in a game, that's where he should be.

That's the thing: he can't. Even when he "does" it shows up on the rebounding edge. Why not start Felton, Shumpert, Melo, Stat and Chandler? That's your main 5 and unless the gel, they aint going nowhere. Right now we are playing gimmick ball. Melo and Stat play well off each other because they can hit jumpers, better than Melo does with Camby. It's kind of the same thing with the Lakers. Why take away our one advantage and play to other teams strength? We have size over the Heat so why not use it?

Man, the Knicks have been destroying the Kings in this game, which is unbelievable considering they got off to a horrible start in the first and Melo didn't get his first bucket until midway into the second quarter. I've been saying this a lot lately but Amar'e has really impressed me and I'm glad they decided to have him come off the bench because it's really helping the team when the starters are getting their rest.

It's fools gold! They have played soft teams and I knew this winning streak would blow up their psyche. This small lineup will get us nowhere.

Man, people are freaking out that the Knicks won big tonight and are on a 4 game win streak. Good Lord is that what we, as Knick fans are considering terrific??? Maybe a few years ago. Wins like this....against Sacramento should be a given.

Wake me when they face Chicago or Miami in the playoffs. That's when they can impress me. Even if they somehow make it out of the East into the finals, there's about 4 teams in the West that are easily better than them. They haven't even played OKC, Golden State or the Clippers yet. They still have 2 more against Miami and 1 more against the Bulls and Grizzlies.

I think in a situation like this, some are more referring to how bad the Kings are, not how good the Knicks are.
