Default Switching to the old ball on January 1st...

Will it benefit or hurt the Knicks? I think it's a toss up but if I were to choose I'd say benefit. I feel that Marbury wasn't comfortable with the new one. I see him miss layups in games that he would have made with ease last season. He was a beast last season from three point range in a few games and this season he's been mediocre comparing it to last season.

If it will help the knicks I'm sure it will help everybody else too.

Will it help players play defense? That's what is really lacking in the NBA.

I think it would hurt Eddy Curry, but help Jamal.

I don't think ANY ball will help Curry. He's been double teamed and triple teamed and what's the use of passing the ball to him if he doesn't know what to do with it. Crawford I have a feeling will benefit as well. Marbury I know will benefit. We'll have to wait 'til the first.

It will be an adjustment at first since they have gotten used to the new ball, but I think it will benefit the team once everyone uses it for a while.

At least Eric Dampier's numbers will go down, which of course doesnt affect us, im just looking for the silver lining.
