Default David Lee needs to be a starter!

It totally blows my mind that Isiah doesn't start Lee.

It's already been proven 2 times now...when Lee starts...Knicks go on winning streak...

Even besides that...he's earned his playing time and deserves to start over Jeffries.

If having a winning record means having a garbage bench...then ok.

And to not always have to come behind cuz our starters can't do the job is also something I can live with.

Besides what's so garbage about having Jared Jeffries come off the bench instead? I think it'll pay off cuz he's just been so inconsistent...coming off the bench may help.

Isn't it funny that we are just fans and we can see something so obvious as Lee being far more superior than Jefferies. Zeke sees them in practice and in the games themselves and he STILL can't appreciate the fact. Lee is a beast and he should start EVERY game. Jefferies is just terrible. I don't know why they think he's a special defender, that dunk by Butler in the Wizards game was pretty close to him.

By the way, I hate you Jerome James.

Lee plays around 30 minutes a night. He is getting starter minutes and he is usually on the floor in the fourth. Balkman gets no run and he is an athelic player with good defense. If he started instead of JJ number 2 we would have a more balance starting five.

I also get the feeling Lee won't be a Knick for long.

Lee and Frye will bolt this team ASAP. They know they have the talent and are being held back because of the fact and it's being talked more and more about, that Isiah is playing contracts and not the best players.

By proving Curry is the man he is stifling other talented players like Lee, Frye and Balkman in favor of Jefferies, James and Curry.

I was going to say that in my previous post on this thread. It's almost like what happened to Van Horn. He was the most decent player the year he left but Zeke got rid of him. Then the team really didn't have a perimeter game.

Now Lee coming off the bench and Jefferies starting is just a slap in the face for Lee's ball skills. Free Agency will be a blessing in disguise for Lee and Frye, maybe even Balkman.

Don't be surprised when we start hearing that they want to be traded. Thanks alot Zeke.

Keep the starters as it is. Lee coming off the bench still gets major minutes. Let Frye start and do his thing then have lee come in and let frye know that he's ending the game.

Marbury
Crawford
Richardson
Frye
Curry

Let it be then bring balkman and lee off the bench for energy
