  1. Along with Amare and Tyson, Wallace may make the Knicks the league leaders in technical fouls off of complaints.

  2. last year, i felt like if Chandler got 2 early fouls, it was a long night watching jeffries try to defend the rim with no other bigs except maybe harrelson. Nobody to knock someone on their ass or block a shot. Now, we can bring in camby and thomas and sheed…..I think it’s great depth. And, I’m guessing our guards don’t get hammered as much.

  3. FWIW (not much, probably) Larry Brown loved coaching Rasheed, and Larry doesn’t like coaching just anyone.
