Knicks 2006 Season Preview    

With Basketball season looming, I thought I'd take a quick look at my Knicks, and formulate an estimation of how the upcoming season will turn out. The buzz in New York couldn't be greater.

Boy do I wish I hadn't.

A quick tour through their roster:
Stephon Marbury.

Jamal Crawford

Eddy Curry

Jalen Rose

Channing Frye

Steve Franchise

Nate Robinson

Quentin Richardson

Maurice Taylor

Jackie Butler

David Lee

I can't go any further... I'm spent.

Here's what ESPN's John Hollinger has to say about the guys he ranks as the Knicks best players, including their preposterously inflated overall ranking in the league...

35. Channing Frye
"The Knicks' first-round pick looked like a Rookie of the Year contender before Larry Brown started screwing with his head."

49. Eddy Curry
"The Knicks centered much of their high hopes for the season around their unrealistic hopes for Curry, making a crazy bet by dealing an unprotected lottery pick to Chicago"

55. Stephon Marbury
"And we thought Athens was bad. The pairing of Larry Brown and Marbury didn't work well for the U.S. Olympic team, but it was downright disastrous for the Knicks."


  • You forgot Reynaldo Balkman.

  • Hey, you forgot R-Balk just like Isiah forgot Marcus Williams and Rajon Rondo! Heyoooooooo

  • Seriously though, you kinda have to feel bad for Balkman. It's one thing to be, say, Mario Williams, where your lofty draft status is a joke that you must overcome. It's another to be Reynaldo Balkman, where your ceiling for success is low enough that you can't really overcome the joke status you've been given. But on top of that, you're also the cherry on the Isiah's Crazy cake, as far as every single Knick fan on the planet is concerned. Rey could very well kill himself. Let's hope he doesn't have a pilot's license.
