I think I rather Sheed start over Camby. He gives us most of what Marcus does but also an added offensive threat.
Camby/Tyson good combo. Compliment each others game very well. I so glad Melo is not having to guard big PFs. Remember the Memphis game with Melo guarding Zbo & Gasol!!!
Chicago beat us twice by just crushing us on the boards. Brooklyn is a tough matchup because they rebound. Even Sir Charles complains that our rebounding will end up killing our chances.
Rebounding means extra possessions they lead to extra points. We need camby to fill a Noah role for us,
hey .....we got a very easy schedule coming up...like 11 of our next 16 games are loosing teams.............
so if that camby and tyson line up gets us 11 and 5 in the next 16 games ..im fine with it ..but.... the reality of it is no.... you cant depend on camby starting more than 5 games in a row without breaking down...
so id rather go with sheed if he was healthy......stat stays on bench..... BTW ....alot of ppl are forgetting that we gave up on camby when we had him because no matter how talented he was he just couldn't stay healthy...
so imagine a old camby playing 180 minutes in 5 games straight??? not a good idea...good for match up games but camby and tyson tandem every day ...no
love the idea of Camby and Tyson starting in the first quarter. Having two former defensive players of the year on the court. Did you guys see last night's game? We had an MSG lockdown last night with those two patrolling the paint. it sets the tone for at the start of the game, taking command in the first and our second unit just overpowered theirs. beautiful thing to watch.
I am good with either him or Sheed starting(especially against physical teams)..neither need to play more than 10-15 minutes each.. and there will be times we should go back to smaller lineups against smaller quicker teams..this is something Woodson needs to figure out
Personally...I am counting the days down until Felton/shump get back so Brewer does not start ... unless brewer can get back to the D he used to play!ray:
This is great news! Health should still be our #1 priority for the post-season, which means, monitor just about everyone's minutes. Even Melo, we want him fresh in the post-season.
I'm not against starting Camby, but I think it will be only against a handful of teams like Memphis, Brooklyn maybe, and I don't know who else...
Brewer and Novak to me are the odd men out right now. Cope is more versatile and consistent offensively, but because Novak can knock down 5 threes any day, he'll continue to get chances.
C Chandler, Sheed,
PF Camby, Stoudemire
SF Anthony, Smith
SG Shumpert, Kidd
PG Felton, Prigioni
With Novak, Kurt, Copeland and Brewer being there for certain matchups, foul trouble, nagging injuries etc.
Not bad for a playoffs lineup. Maybe Kidd starts instead of Felton since Shump can guard PGs.
Although we blew the Heat out twice, I wonder how our new found bigs would deal with that team. Just like BK's size gives us problems. I think we match up well with most teams in the league.
Thanx to Yash for the ill sig
remember who coach's?
Sheed will start based on how Mike raves about him and how he talks on defense etc. and I'm great with that for a few reasons.
- Sheed plays solid tough defense\
-Sheed is a stetch 4 to play with Melo that opens the court
-Having two guys who can't score on their own, can finish well unless its a dunk and clogs the lane don't help Melo's game.
-Camby is a great back up Center giving Chandler the needed rest for the playoff run. So if We play Chandler 30 min that leaves Camby 18.
There is a log jam and i'm not sure yet how Woody will go, but he has Chandler, Amare, Sheed and Camby have all played at the center spot. Add in the fact that Melo plays a very good 4 and something has to give.
Now I can't fly my airplane
I think the Knicks need to have 12 minutes of Camby and Sheed each half. You give 6 minutes of Camby to start the 1st and give me 6 minutes of Sheed in the 2nd and the Knicks Defense will be find.
It will also keep the old enforcers healthy. 12 mins of Camby and 12 mins of Sheed a game will keep the loses away.
My Good Girl Good luck Charm
Honestly, I'm good with it either way, but I want Camby/Sheed starting next to Tyson for sure.
