Default Renaldo Balkman

I love this guy. When the Knicks drafted him at the 20 hole, I was the only one in the room who thought it was a great pickup. The kid is a baller and can play. He is everything that I aspired to be in high school - a great rebounder, athletic prowess, work ethic, hustle D, and a few points here and there. I think that he is going to be a great player in the Association for years to come. Be happy that you drafted this kid. He won't let you down. Just let all the criticism role off your shoulders. I think the Knicks will have a breakout year. I've never followed the NBA much, but now that people are constantly *****ing about Balkman's position in the draft - I just want the New York F'ing Knicks to win it all.

Renaldo is the real deal.

I think Balkman is a good combination with Jeffries at the 3 spot. I doubt he gets much playing time this year.

everyone looks for minutes. They just have a different approach about getting it.

I feel that he will add a lot.

But, experts agree that he would have been around at the Knick's second pick. I think we could have gotten a better first pick and Balkman too.

I hope Balkman sees decent playing time this season.

The Knicks have too many players for them all to get PT. We should trade some 2 or more for one and for draft picks to build up the quality of the team.

I'd be surprised if he does not! There are too many veterans accustomed playing who will see little or no playing time. IMHO he has to trade them or risk a mutiny.
