Jay Bilas ate him up just like he ate Josh Smith and his FAJA.

in all fairness, he seemed to bust his a$$ in games. he out-rebounded and out-hustled alot of the other players and was involved in almost every single play in one way or another. they complained on him being picked too high, but if he plays like he did in college, he'll do fine.

He is being overrated in that respect because sc featured other players who did just the same. Brandon Wallace wasnt exactly a cheeseball there you know.

The fact Balkman sold himself during the sec & nit tourney times is what won him over. He was just noticable, a guy who hustled and did the dirty work, lil things. Much like Jerome Williams in the NBA. Guy who chases down a rebound like an actor or blocks a shot and recieves an ally oop dunk at the other end. Crowd gets hype, commentators notice and his name becomes more constant. That is all. He is a solid role player, energy guy but those are reserved for the 2nd round not #20.


Atleast take him at 29 and pick a better player/prospect with 20 where you can either use or trade along with someone in a pacakge to make the team better. Why not take Marcus Williams and see who is interested? Why not keep him and make plans to get rid of Francis or Marbury? Getting the BPA at 20 gives you options. Real simple unless you're Isiah.

Balkman is legit. Dude is making his mark in the league with his rebounding and garbage scoring ability. What do you expect from the 20th pick in the draft. Crappy draft. Balkman arguably better than some of the garbage that was drafted before him.

He is playing better then Reddick, O'Bryant, Saer Sene,Hilton Armstrong, Thabo Sefolosha, and many others I cant think of right now.

Blakman and Lee are my favorite Knicks right now.

They both play old school.

Balkman has an NBA ready body and mentality that's why Zeke drafted him.

If and when and he will, develop a 15 foot jumper he will be a very good player maybe eventually an all star.

He also handles the ball very well for a guy 6' 8".

He's just a natural basketball player and without the ego.

i'd have to agree, the only thing i wouldn't want balkman to do is shoot 3's. He is a very scrappy player, plays good defense especially on yao. He will give you buckets down the stretchs and they will be garbage buckets.

David Lee is just unreal to me. He does nothing but look to rebound and finish. Frye is falling while lee is coming up.

Eddy Curry is letting his game speak for himself
