Brewer Close to Returning

It’s been reported that Ronnie Brewer is close to returning, and my in fact return to practice today.  Amar’e is also supposed to return to the starting lineup for Fridays game against the Raptors.  Knicks fans may actually get to see the starting lineup in action before the regular season starts.  Should we be excited that the Knicks starting lineup may be in tact by Friday or depressed that having all of our starters play in the same game is exciting news?

The Knicks display their lack of desire to lead catch division leader

This is a photo of the Knicks shot selection tonight:

The Knicks had a chance to close the gap on the 76ers tonight, playing the terrible Raptors.  They had a multi-faceted strategy:

  • Turn the ball over every other possession
  • Miss at least 10 layups and/or dunks
  • Miss as many shots as possible
  • Don’t tire yourself out contesting any Raptors driving to the basket
  • J.R. Smith should shoot constantly no matter how contested or how far from the net he is
  • Keep Jorts on the bench even though Jeffries is injured
  • Throw the ball into the stands at least once a quarter
  • Make sure no one is boxed out, someone might accidentally get a rebound if that happens

This strategy did not work.

Well the Knicks are in the playoffs for the first time since 2004.  They beat the Toronto Raptors to clinch.  We also got a new entry for the Knicks Effect.  We should rest the starters for the rest of the season so we have fresh legs for the playoffs.  We try to guess the rotation for the playoffs.  What the hell is wrong with Balkman?  We talk about practice and how the Knicks don’t seem to have any.  Download Episode 54
