Yeah, I blame the Knicks for not having the common sense to acquire at least one decent younger, durable big man.

Agreed

Why get one durable big man when you could get SIX injury prone ones? That's just common sense. 6 > 1

Camby can play, they just don't want to risk his foot acting up prior to playoffs. Kenyon should be back too. The others, i'd doubt we see them. I'm not sure i want to see Amare, the team is much weaker defensively with him on the court.

Knicks are much better running small ball anyway with Melo at the 4. its a blessing in disguise, all those injuries

Usually, but it's not going to work against the Pacers. 2nd round matchup.

I really hope Amare and Sheed get back at some point before the Knicks season ends.

Kurt and Camby can stay out lol.

You're right, they are falling from the trees, so many and so cheap.

I lol'd. Truth be told we knew we were tempting father time signing these guys, but a 50+ win season is nothing to sneeze at, even though most of ISH and the mainstream media do just that... the way i see it we need 1 of the guys not currently playing to come back and remain healthy through to and including the 1st round. Tyson and Martin, for example, can hold down the fort and hopefully for the 2nd round we'll get some minutes from Amar'e and KT.

That Utah game where KT went beast-mode is still one of my favorite moments from the season. That and his 3-point game-winner over the kings.

There were several guys available for the minimum or easily through trade, the Knicks were determined on getting veteran experience which resulted in their current injury riddled predicament

C'mon....can you really predict EVERY big man Knicks have would be injured at the same time?

It's alright....the only "old" big man signed past this year is Camby. :facepalm Kurt will be gone, probably Sheed will be gone too, but KMart will probably stay (just my guess).

KMart. :facepalm

Chris copeland was a good center against the thunder.

this is what you get for getting a bunch of 40 year old bigs.
