Knicks Need to Figure Out Sheed

“Sometimes sitting on the sideline or sitting in the back watching those guys, it’s killing me because at certain points of the games I feel like that I could have gotten that rebound or I would have been able to trap here or do something there. It’s a lot of what ifs. I definitely want to be out there with my soldiers. I’m in practice preparing and going through game film. I’m preparing myself, but I have to say, ‘Guys, I can’t get on the airplane and go to war with you.’ It kills me, but there’s nothing I can do.”

With Pau Gasol out in Los Angeles, it will be interesting to see who they bring in. The Knicks insurance policy for Rasheed’s foot is Kenyon Martin, but will he end up with the Lakers is a fair question. I think Rasheed can hold up and will make an appearance in the post season after playing sparingly the rest of the year and I hope I am wrong.

The defense last night didn’t get the job done nor does only handing out 14 team assists. Wallace closes possessions with his rebounding and his post up ability with the second unit allows for ball movement and more assist opportunities.
