Default Morris looked OK.

He seems not to be afraid.

He looks strong and he hustled.

I have a good feeling about him.

He's Big and not intimidated playing his first game.

But you can tell he was nervous.

I think a few minutes here and there wouldn't hurt, and it would give him a sense of the NBA level. The guy 2 weeks ago was playing college ball, so no one expects him to go out 20-30 minutes a night.

He proved one thing.

That he could play more minutes than Jerome James yet not get into foul trouble and be more productive.

I thought James hurt Lebron, by accident of course. He's so oafish out there he doesn't get into the flow of the game. That's why he's always in foul trouble.

Like I have said before, I'm no mastermind basketball guru, but to me he looks like he belongs on the court and has excellent athleticism for a big man.

He also looks really strong, long arms and seems to have court sense.

Yes I can see that in the few minutes he played. I would think after watching basketball for 40+ years you would be able to notice the basics.

The Knicks are amassing a huge collection of talented bigmen.

It's going to be a year or two down the road until they all gel and get command of their game.

But when they do, watch out. They are going to wear a team out physically.

Our only real need right now is a true backup point guard that can break down a defense and distribute the ball, he doesn't have to score. We also need a good all around SG who's long and tall.

I think if you can switch brain between Collins and Nate you would have something. Collins should be a 2 but he's a 1 and Nate should be a PG but he's a SG. Call Dr. Frankenstein for a brain switch.

I do have a question though. Why does it seem that some of our guys who should take a shot are afraid to and some guys who shouldn't, do take the shot.

I have seen Balkman and Frye pass up open short jumpers and Jefferies try for long one's when he has trouble even making a layup.

Oh and I forgot one thing, why does Rose take a shot at all? Because nobody on the D covers him and for good reason. He should never take a shot, he aims the ball now and it hits the rim. His time is over........I'm sure if he saw more minutes he'd start hitting those shots but he doesn't get the minutes. I'm sure he's aiming it because he doesn't want to take the shot, but the Knicks some times just stand around and he has to.

Morris shot everything he grabbed or was passed. I thought he was going to have his eyes well up and cry on court with how nervous he was. He got the butterflies out of the way. I expect a better game next time he's on the court.

It's not that he shouldn't, he shouldn't have to.

Curry,Frye,Lee, and Morris.

They CAN be pretty good and be a handful over for a team.
We shouldnt trade ANY of them.

3 for the starting frontline. 1 for the bench.
