Sure! Forget about Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen -- they are way too old to be any good. It was a fluke that they outscored the Knicks by forty while only playing about 20 minutes each. If they had played the other 20, they would have either outscored the Knicks by 80, or got tired of scoring for the Celtics and started shooting for the Knicks. Who needs that other old codger named Kobe Jones? He is going to be washed up in about 5-10 years.
The Knicks need brains, leadership and teamwork -- not a bunch of young guys running around like Nate Robinson used to do. Or like Nichols who is not smart enough or patient enough to play in Europe for a season or two to learn defence.
