Let's all breathe a collective sigh of relief that we aren't Knicks fans. That roster full of overpaid B-grade talent and damaged players is in for a long run of mediocrity. Observations on this one: Memo to Joe: SELL HIGH ON STUCKEY! As a card carrying member of the Trade Stuckey for Anything club, I was happier than Charlie Villanueva's floor mat salesman to see this Stuckey kid have a game like this. Props to the rook! Pull-up jumpers? When/where in the hell did Rodney learn do do that? I had to pause my DVR and make sure that I wasn't watching some old Arron Afflalo footage from 2008. When Stuckey had that drive and dish play to J-Smoove in the 4th Q, I openenly wept tears of joy in front of my children. "...It's ok kids (sniffle), Daddy just has some dust in his eyes." Singler should NEVER play the 4. ...period. ...never ....ever. Great game by Greg Monroe. Dude was active, efficient and always seemed to be in the right spot. He did get burned by "that Andrea chick" a couple times but you can't expect a 6-10 PF to stay with a WNBA small forward. As long as the objective is to win more basketball games than the other teams in the NBA; Josh Smith is better at basketball than Carmelo Anthony. ...Melo will be selected to the All-Star game this year. ...Melo will contend for the scoring title. - Josh Smith will continue to heed the words of Tom Gores and "be impactful". More sweet dimes from Josh Smith in this one. I'll admit, I never really watched too many Hawks games when J-Smoove played there. I used to find Atlanta about as exciting as Darth's Eagles thread. Josh Smith's awesome passing ability has really surprised me! I hope Brandon Jennings feels better soon. ...But not well enough to jack up a bunch of ill-advised 3-pointers. It's amazing how much better the team looks with 5 less bad 3-pointers. I'm NOT saying that we don't need BJ7 to shoot threes, we certainly DO. All I'm saying is that the team looks more efficient when they're not chasing down bricks bouncing around near half court. I remember a couple years back that when a Piston big man blocked a shot, it was this huge deal. It's not like that any more. Now if you'll excuse me, I gotta get the duct tape out and convert my old Ben Wallace jersey into a Rodney Stuckey #3.
