I do not know exactly where to put this post. This seems like a good place as any though. I plan to do a lot of writeups, commenting on the other teams I follow, mostly which I follow due to ex - Pistons being on those teams. In review, Washington, nope. No ex - Pistons. Cleveland, Daye might make the team. Not following them for that, just started to follow Irving's career and I want to continue that. NY for Afflalo. Boston for Amir. Clips for Smith. And Milwaukee for Middleton, and now Monroe as well. So except for when I am talking about Washington, I will kind of be talking about ex - Pistons. So here goes. First, I did watch that game now where Daye got the nine rebounds. Not a great game for him at all, but still some contributions, putting him at least in the running with several other guys trying to hang on to a roster spot in Cleveland. Daye has a make good contract at the moment. In this game, Daye did not really stick out from the few others looking to land the same roster spot. But none of them hit 4 straight clutch 3's the game before like Daye did. So who knows. Oh, and I will also, as I writeup these games, comment on the player rankings, which I will review before each writeup, giving my opinions on who is not ranked correctly or who is. I will make these comments with little or no thought about other comments, so hey, means I am not going backwards to revise any such comments to make them match or lineup in any way. Just commenting and trying to keep my ideas free flowing. New York beat Washington. Got to follow two of my teams in the same game. I automatically found myself routing for Afflalo's team, even though Afflalo has a hamstring problem keeping him out of action. Washington is starting Humphries now, who looked pretty darn good, extending his range out to the 3 line. The theory is to let Nene be more fresh for the playoffs. Anyway, the Wiz started out with the upper hand, but the Knicks came back strong on the backs of 2 players. One, Derrick Williams, who is at rank #239 per the ESPN article. This guy pretty much scored a point a minute, just unstoppable going inside against the Washington interior D. Some guys I feel Williams should be ranked ahead of include Gary Neal who is at 230, Jarrod Dudley at 173, and and certainly Otto Porter at 111. No, this does not mean I think Williams belongs at 111. Otto Porter does not belong there. At least not yet. The other guy was the Mela Fella. One of those inhuman level shooting performances. Everything went in, no matter how closely guarded. The Wiz fell down by 15, evened it out on the strength of great shooting by the Real Beal. Nice to see Beal healthy. I almost thought of switching to another team to follow, since he has been injured so much, and following him and Wall are why I have been following the Wiz. In the end, NY's bench came back out, and that meant Williams again was unstoppable and the game was quickly out of reach for Washington. Two other players I want to mention for NY. Porzingis, ranked 192. Forget that. This guy has unending length, can shoot outside, post up, and do midrange pull - ups. I'd rank him well ahead of Williams, cause a center is just so important to how many wins a team gets. And of course, since Washington does not have enough interior D really, I may be overating the performance by Williams as far as crashing inside at will in this game. And O'Quinn, I guy I followed before when he was on Orlando. O'Quinn is the type of player we should have gotten for the power forward spot. Good range. Stong player. His #228 ranking not nearly good enough. As Melo said, he expects the the Knicks to compete this year well, and I agree. Calderon and Jerian Grant are certainly not the worst pair of point guards you could have. Afflalo and Galloway give them plenty enough talent at shooting guard. Melo at small forward, nuff said. And 3 quality bigs in Robin Lopez, Porzingis, and O'Quinn. And I like Saraphin there for even more depth up at the bigs position.
