1. TRUE or FALSE: Tyson Chandler is more important to the Knicks success than Carmelo Anthony.

True, but I am biased towards big men. Defense wins championships. Melo does get way too much hate on here though.

2. More positive impact this season: Andrea Bargnani or Amare Stoudemire?
Huh.... Kenyon Martin? I am not impressed by bargs and I am not sure what stat still has in the tank since his game was based on his freak athleticism. Both are below average defenders. I guess bargs, since it lets melo play more of a pf role, where he was very successful last year. They need someone like gallo at the 3.....

3. POWER RANK! Best Offseason Pickup: Andrea Bargnani, Beno Udrih, Metta World Peace
Huh, hard one. Does beno play over PP? How many minutes does MWP get? Probably Bargs again, but I think I just barged in my mouth.

4. POWER RANK! The Point Guard Trifecta: Raymond Felton, Pablo Prigioni, Beno Udrih
Felchton, Udrih, Petey Pablo

5. POWER RANK! Based on Level of Crazy: Kenyon Martin, JR Smith, Metta World Peace
Metta, JR, Kenyon. Kenyon plays a crazy person on tv, but hes basically just a yeller and mean mugger.

6. TRUE or FALSE: Once again, Knicks will surprise the hatas and the critics and the analysts, and get further than expected.

Well, how far are they expected to go? I think they are one of the best 4 or so and should make the second round. I dont think they make the ECF. If they do, I will let BagelRed blow me as a prize.

1. TRUE or FALSE: Tyson Chandler is more important to the Knicks success than Carmelo Anthony.
--False. Chandler can become Bill Russell and the success of the team will still depend on Melo because of how many possessions end in his hands. Plus, I thought Chandler was straight garbage in the Pacers series. If he can't contain Hibbert then...

2. More positive impact this season: Andrea Bargnani or Amare Stoudemire?
-- Bargs. I actually think his floor spacing is going to be enormous for New York. He's going to wreck some teams if Felton asserts himself at getting in the lane (which he can and has done). Unfortunately there's the other side of the ball and I don't expect anything different than what I saw from in Toronto.

3. POWER RANK! Best Offseason Pickup: Andrea Bargnani, Beno Udrih, Metta World Peace
-- Bargnani, Udrih, and then Artest.

4. POWER RANK! The Point Guard Trifecta: Raymond Felton, Pablo Prigioni, Beno Udrih
--Felton, Udrih, and then Prigioni. I actually like Prigioni, too.

5. POWER RANK! Based on Level of Crazy: Kenyon Martin, JR Smith, Metta World Peace
--World Peace, JR, and then Kenyon.

6. TRUE or FALSE: Once again, Knicks will surprise the hatas and the critics and the analysts, and get further than expected.

1. TRUE or FALSE: Tyson Chandler is more important to the Knicks success than Carmelo Anthony.


False, but the margin isn't as far as it may seem. If Tyson was back in peak defensive form there could be a strong argument

2. More positive impact this season: Andrea Bargnani or Amare Stoudemire?


Both are shit and don't deserve to wear Knick uniforms, but if healthy Amare. If Amare misses 25+ games, then Bargs by default


3. POWER RANK! Best Offseason Pickup: Andrea Bargnani, Beno Udrih, Metta World Peace


1. Bargs, I fvcking hate this guy and his contract but the other two will have minimal impact

2. MWP

3. Udrih


4. POWER RANK! The Point Guard Trifecta: Raymond Felton, Pablo Prigioni, Beno Udrih

1. Felton
2/3. Coin toss depending on team they face


5. POWER RANK! Based on Level of Crazy: Kenyon Martin, JR Smith, Metta World Peace


1. MWP check his twitter

2. JR, not sure if crazy or just incredibly ignorant

3. K-Mart, and it's always unlikely for Martin to not even be the second craziest guy on your squad

6. TRUE or FALSE: Once again, Knicks will surprise the hatas and the critics and the analysts, and get further than expected.



ECF if they completely maximize talent, and I don't think that would be too mind blowing to anyone. They can't beat the Heat tho unless everyone goes godmode for a series. And i'mm talking everyone playing better than they ever have In their lives

[b]1. TRUE or FALSE: Tyson Chandler is more important to the Knicks success than Carmelo Anthony. False, anyone who answers differently either doesn't understand the game or doesn't watch the Knicks. Did the Knicks go on their best run of the whole season without chandler or without Carmelo?

2. More positive impact this season: Andrea Bargnani or Amare Stoudemire? Wishful thinking on that question

3. POWER RANK! Best Offseason Pickup: Andrea Bargnani, Beno Udrih, Metta World Peace. Bargnani is one of the best pickups in the whole league due to how perfectly he compliments Carmelo

4. POWER RANK! The Point Guard Trifecta: Raymond Felton, Pablo Prigioni, Beno Udrih. - shumpert is the best option the Knicks have at pg- and it isn't even close

5. POWER RANK! Based on Level of Crazy: Kenyon Martin, JR Smith, Metta World Peace mwp, jr, Kmart

6. TRUE or FALSE: Once again, Knicks will surprise the hatas and the critics and the analysts, and get further :
true. Not looked at as being as good as even the nets, will easily outdo them

1. TRUE or FALSE: Tyson Chandler is more important to the Knicks success than Carmelo Anthony. False. Silly question actually.

2. More positive impact this season: Andrea Bargnani or Amare Stoudemire?
Bargs. We all know where Stoudemire will be for most of the season, and it's a hard place to have an impact from.

3. POWER RANK! Best Offseason Pickup: Andrea Bargnani, Beno Udrih, Metta World Peace Metta. Will have a huge chip on his shoulder, and if he's just decent he allows them to do a lot more because he fits in the holes they have.

4. POWER RANK! The Point Guard Trifecta: Raymond Felton, Pablo Prigioni, Beno Udrih Felton if he gets his head out of his ass on defense. He was actually the Knicks second best offensive option against Boston.

5. POWER RANK! Based on Level of Crazy: Kenyon Martin, JR Smith, Metta World Peace Metta is crazy, the other two just stupid.

6. TRUE or FALSE: Once again, Knicks will surprise the hatas and the critics and the analysts, and get further than expected.
I say True. People are in love with the Nets but I'd be shocked if injuries don't affect their season a huge amount.

Default Re: ISH's FIVE QUESTIONS: New York Knicks Edition

1 False. Was this supposed to be a joke? Tyson isn't anywhere close to Melo in terms of impact.

2 Is this another joke? If both are healthy (and neither has been), Amare is 10x the player Bargnani is.

3 Beno, Metta, Bargs

4 Prigioni, Udrih, Felton

5 JR, Metta, KMart

6 True. Knicks will win 58-62 games. Woodson has always been a great regular season coach, and if Melo stays healthy they will easily surpass what they did last year.

Default Re: ISH's FIVE QUESTIONS: New York Knicks Edition

1. TRUE or FALSE: Tyson Chandler is more important to the Knicks success than Carmelo Anthony.
A -- False. The Knicks really only have one player, other than Melo, that can create his own shot, and that's JR. I don't want to rely on JR. And, unlike the Bulls with the Noah vs Rose question, Chandler doesn't lead a top 3 D (I don't think so, anyway).

2. More positive impact this season: Andrea Bargnani or Amare Stoudemire?
A -- This may get me kicked off ISH, but I actually like Bargs.

3. POWER RANK! Best Offseason Pickup: Andrea Bargnani, Beno Udrih, Metta World Peace
A -- Udrih, Bargs, MWP. Bargs is the best player of the three, but I think Udrih fills a need and is very underrated.

4. POWER RANK! The Point Guard Trifecta: Raymond Felton, Pablo Prigioni, Beno Udrih
A -- The oldest rookie ever is last.

5. POWER RANK! Based on Level of Crazy: Kenyon Martin, JR Smith, Metta World Peace
A -- Man, I enjoy all these players... I wonder what that says about me. But... Artest, JR, Martin, Metta.

6. TRUE or FALSE: Once again, Knicks will surprise the haters and the critics and the analysts, and get further than expected.
A -- Fixed, so as to not encourage that Fresh Kid poster. And since I like Bargs, and I like Udrih, I do think the Knicks are better than people give them credit. But they are not better than Miami, Indiana, Chicago, so I think they'll do exactly what they're expected to do. Lose to one of those three teams.

1. FALSE, as bad as Melo play, he is still our scoring machine, the Knicks relied HEAVILY on him

2. god i hate to say this. i think Amare "a $100 million man" Stoudefvckingmire will have a bigger impact than bargnani

3. I prefer Ron Artest, but maybe metta's not too bad. Metta,Udrih,Bargnani.

4. Felton,Prigioni,Udrih

5. Metta, JR, Kenyon Martin. gosh i'd love to see sheed in a knick jersey once again. But worry not, glen grunwald is lloking on ricky davis

6. Once again, Knicks will continue to dissapoint tha fans and the whole nu yawk city, and still have the gut to say "we run new york city, screw brooklyn"

Default Re: ISH's FIVE QUESTIONS: New York Knicks Edition

Ladies and Gentlemen, I"m going to break the fourth wall. Because, I'm going to do something that's never been done. ANSWER MY OWN QUESTIONS!!!

Quote:
Jeff: "Bagelred, nobody has ever done this before."
Bagelred: "That's why it's going to work."


1. TRUE or FALSE: Tyson Chandler is more important to the Knicks success than Carmelo Anthony.

FALSE - But it's a lot closer than people think. Chandler had injuries he was dealing with during the Pacer series and he looked completely ineffective. Fans forget what a game changer Tyson is. As great as Melo is, Knicks actually get better on defense without him, and at least ball moves on offense. The answer is still Melo, but it's not a blowout.

2. More positive impact this season: Andrea Bargnani or Amare Stoudemire?

The hate on Bargs was ridiculous, and I was kinda looking at the bright side of his acquisition. But if his defense is as bad as people say, Woodson might bench him. I think Amare WILL stay healthy this year. It's like his knees needed that routine maintenance and that's over, and I bet he'll be good to go for a few more years. Amare is still a bad fit with Melo/Chandler, but as a backup getting 20/25 minutes a night, he can definitely be productive. His doctor imposed minutes limit might be the best thing. Takes pressure off Woodson to play him big minutes. So the answer is Amare.

3. POWER RANK! Best Offseason Pickup: Andrea Bargnani, Beno Udrih, Metta World Peace

Whew. This is a tough call. I'm gonna go with the upset and say Udrih first. I always liked his game, and he's been on some bad teams. I bet he thrives with the weapons around him. So I'll say Udrih, Bargs, Metta in that order. Just not sure what Metta has left in tank.

4. POWER RANK! The Point Guard Trifecta: Raymond Felton, Pablo Prigioni, Beno Udrih

I asked this question, because this is REALLY REALLY close. I think in same ways you could go in any order and be correct. Felton can drive me up a wall sometimes, as he is the worst distributor of the three. But his ability to score sometimes is very impressive. So I hate to do it, but gotta put him first.

So I'll go Felton, Udrih, Pablo...even though I love Pablo.

5. POWER RANK! Based on Level of Crazy: Kenyon Martin, JR Smith, Metta World Peace

Hmmmm.....everyone seems to think MWP. But I'm gonna go with KMart. That guy is just psycho. I mean, he's the guy I most would not want to meet in a dark alley. I feel he is a thug beyond reproach. So I'll go KMart, JR, Metta in that order. Come on...who doesn't love MWP right? At least his crazy is in a positive direction now.....

6. TRUE or FALSE: Once again, Knicks will surprise the hatas and the critics and the analysts, and get further than expected.

The answer of course is TRUE. Once again, everyone is down on the Knicks just like last offseason. Well the Knicks got the 2nd seed, and got to the 2nd round, and lost a tough series to Pacers, in which if Chandler was 100% and JR was 100% I feel we could have won.

And although I actually don't like losses of Copeland and Novak, in theory, the Knicks are stronger with Bargs, Udrih, and MWP, a healthy Shump and Amare, KMart from Day 1, and a core unit that's still in tact. It's odd everyone thinks Bulls, Pacers, and ESPECIALLY the Nets somehow leapfrog them. So assuming at least solid health, I expect some good things and a few surprises for the critics.


LOL great job on the Pablo Prigioni tribute, Bagel. Nice.


Oh, and good job Bagelred on these threads. Keep them coming.....

It isn't. He's a pretty good man defender, has good foot-movement. He's a non-existent help defender and shot-blocker. His poor rebounding and shot-blocking is the reason he's labelled as the worst defensive big-man.

The thing is, why do people keep labeling him a "big man". Yes, he's tall obviously, but he's a perimeter player. It's like people want him to be something he's not. Not saying he can't get more rebounds, but that's just not his skillset. Gotta compare him to SF/PF....not Centers.

Well that wouldn't fit people's narratives.

Him and STAT will obviously be playing C and the last line of defense each and every night. . .

Sure Bargs rebounding is horrible but like you stated, it's not his game. He has Chandler to cover his defense, a luxury he never had on the Craptors. Also he isn't that bad of a post defender, I've watched a bit of him and he does it competently. Has averaged over 1 BPG before and has flirted with that number a few times.
