Knicks got lucky, but again, let's give it some time too. I hate to start another Lin debate, but I've yet to see a team play great defense on him (FORCE HIM LEFT!).
Yes!

Forbes. Butler. Magloire. Carter. Gray. Alabi. Not much more than warm bodies.

In a throw away year, if you want to get a good look at a guy, get a good look at him because it wasn't going to be 3 years, $15 mil. He would have been a marketing gem in Toronto without all that on-court success. We're paying fans. You want to cheer for more than free t-shirts and 3 wins out of 10 when it is as low risk as he was.
