If there are no changes to this roster for next year it should be open competition for every spot except Melo and Chandler. Guys should have to earn playing time. Next coach should work them hard. Try to instill discipline and toughness from the get go.

Are the Pacers playing better or they still struggling as of late?

woody still using that injury excuse, he really has short term memory, he still started Bargs, with melo and chandler, even when amare was healthy

Woodson stated he doesnt have anything to prove to PJ over these last 16 games.  This guy is really on cloud nine

Chandler will be more valuable with a different defensive system. Trade him before season you get pennies on the dollar.

they just won 2 straight, they already did choke when they went 1-14 with that 1 win vs knicks, which was during the knicks 2-14 stretch

so if it's 37, knicks would need to go 10-5..

@buddhabing

Chandler is 32 years old making 15 mil a year.
He's yet to show up on the playoffs for the Knicks, on 3 years.

Trade bait.

@buddhabing  

I dunno about pennies on the dollar.  I think most other teams realize that his defensive impact has been hindered by the deficiencies in the Knicks' scheme and personnel.  As a solid player on an expiring deal, he's one of the Knicks' best trade assets outside of TH Jr/picks.  

Not to mention he's approaching 32 years old, so his impact may suffer from a steep downfall within the next 2 years. His value might be as high as it gets from here on out.

@Armand N Berdynaj @firebaldy @Sandro @Jerry Gee @SheSaidSpikeWho  You gonna tell me what I would do?

Let me tell you a thing or two buddy. I have never been a Lebron fan. I think his heart is questionable and I think he does roids. 

I harbor no respect for his arrogant azz. Everybody is not like you and some others. 

Go ahead and continue to svck on his lollipop and leave me out of it slick!

@carl hill  Timmy gets shook when he plays the great teams. But he is a rookie afterall.

Funny, they will probably make it into the playoffs but I bet their GM would prefer a lottery ticket than a 1st-round knockout against the Heat.

@Seth Nadler  

And Atlanta would need to go 9-10 to get to 37.
