No need for Chris Bosh this summer, because the Knicks have David Lee.
The loss was mostly attributable to an injury suffered by Jared Jeffries, some truly horrible (and stupid) minutes from Al Harrington (on a balky knee, mind you), and a handful of inane plays (which I won’t delve into here, but if you’re interested you can check out Dan’s twitter page). However, final score notwithstanding, David Lee thoroughly outplayed Chris Bosh. Last night he was the better shooter, finisher, rebounder, passer and defender. (Yes, I said defender too. Watching Gallo blow by Bosh twice on straight up drives was a sight to behold.)
And I think Lee believes he’s the better player too. You could see from his body language last night that he doesn’t think much of Bosh.
The only thing Bosh has over Lee is the support of the NBA’s marketing machine. If anyone over at the league office is paying any attention, that ought to be due to change pretty soon.
