Default We Need Ford!

Who else thinks that Ford would be perfect for the Knicks right now. If the Knicks are serious about making the playoffs this year they wont do it with Duhon starting, they need Ford who has playoff experience and can lead a team much better than Duhon.

The rookie on Dallas has more talent in his pinkie than Duhon has in his whole body.

Is Ford available? Is that why you mentioned it? I would even be interested in Telfair at this point.

We lost by 50, how much more embarrassing can it get for us this year?

All I care about is:

1. Can he break down the defense, to set up better scoring opportunities for our shooters?

2. Guard his own guy? Instead of having someone else do it for him all the time? (ala Duhon)

3. Have more B ball IQ than Duhon?

4. Does he have more respect/personal pride for himself than Duhon?

5. I ran out of rants.

Nope. One day my Rubio suggestion will be justified.

At this point I dont think it matters with or with out Ford. You have to factor in a losing period where Ford is learning the offense and getting used to the team. By that time we'd be so far away from the 8th seed it would'nt even matter. Im kind of torn on this one. I don't want Duhon but....well ok let's trade for Ford.

While all of these may be a definitive yes, have you noticed that while TJ is the Pacers best pg, he isn't playing and hasn't since December?

He isn't injured even though he has had some freaky ones.

He is completely out of their rotation. I think I would want to know why before I consider bringing him in.

TJ has had issues with teammates in the past, even while Donnie was there, and I doubt he will go that route.

I did not know that. If he and Grandpa Walsh had problems, then you might as well forget about him. And I also wonder why he's out of the rotation.

He is selfish and doesnt know the playbook... with that said if his contract is up after this year he definitely talented enough to play 25 minutes a night.
