According to a person familiar with the Knicks' thinking, the club will explore trading Wilson Chandler, possibly packaging him with the expiring contract of Eddy Curry. The Knicks would love to trade for a premier outside-shooting big man.

Unless they get someone like, say, Kevin Love, this would be a step backwards for the Knicks. Stupid idea to trade Chandler.

If the Nets didn't have so many guards and forwards, I'd say GO FOR IT!

Isn't that what Gallo is supposed to be?

He's probably the only Knicks player that plays defense. Other than Stoudemire, who will probably stop playing defense with D'Antoni.

Knicks are assembling a pretty decent roster, they should be much more competitive this year than in year's past (not saying much).

So there was a time when Stoudamire played defense?

I guess so.
I mean he stepped it up from one of the worst defenders at his position in the league to a slightly below average defender and it just happened to be in the most important contract year of his career.

Amare was an above average defensive player last season. Without that, the Suns wouldn't have made it to the seed they did. His defense live and in person was something to behold.

Chandler's D sucks.

Gallo's is pretty good, he always goes hard.

"We also have Anthony Morrow he’s one of the best for three-point throws. It’s very important for our team. "

Gallo is a solid defender. Crafty and smart and has the length.

Actually Gallinari - for his slow lateral speed - does a great job with his positioning AND using his length to guard players much faster than him.

I wouldn't call him a "good" defender - but he's a surprisingly decent/solid defender.

And as somebody who's been trying to root for the knicks for the last decade... you gotta take the small victories.

Chandler isn't as good as Williams or Morrow and Amare stinks on D. There best defenders are Felton, Ronny T and Randolph

At what? Shooting? No he's not as good as morrow - but he's a much better defender and rebounder than both of them...

So?



Your post seems incomplete, the Knicks won't be mistaken for the championship celtics or pistons defense... but they'll be a solid team.

The one thing I know for certain about sports is that it starts at the top and Dolan is an idiot.

That franchise will never succeed with that guy calling the shots, he wanted to bring back Isiah Thomas for god's sakes.
