    Saw the Knicks lose in Denver last week. Saw the Globetrotters in Broomfield last night. The two teams are very similar on Defense and shot selection.

    Sasha has been playing “fairly well” in AA’s place, but Rambis should shake thing up and start Grant at the 2. What’s he got to lose? It’ll speed that starting 5 up and still allow the offense to get set up in the halfcourt sets. If Melo didn’t need a veteran PG with him, I’d say start Grant and Galloway. But for now, I’d be thrilled with seeing Grant grow into his role with less pressure since the postseason likely isn’t in the cards. And when is Wroten coming in?? I hear he may not play at all this season, and I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not. If healthy, he makes for a good SG in the system- but his backcourt mate has to be able to make outside shots. I’d like to see him play the final month just to see what he has at this point. But if he hasn’t fully recovered, then he should sit and focus on getting back to the form he showed before the injury.
