Double doubles last season for David Lee, the most in the NBA and in Knicks postexpansion history. The power forward was the first Knick to lead the league in double doubles since Patrick Ewing (47 in 1996--97).
ENEMY LINES | A RIVAL SCOUT ON THE KNICKS
Fans can take heart that the Knicks didn't make any major mistakes and they still have money for a big free-agent signing next summer. But they don't have a bona fide starter on their team with the exception of Al Harrington and maybe David Lee. It's like an expansion roster.... Let's be honest: Opponents don't game-plan to shut down Lee. He's playing as close to his potential as humanly possible, and he should get credit for that. If you're hoping to get much more out of him, good luck.... Harrington seems to be a nice guy, and he'll compete for you, but he does a lot of silly things. If an opponent makes him look bad he might respond by going endline to endline, and he won't care who's in front of him.... Wilson Chandler runs the floor very well and is a much better offensive player than most people give him credit for. He could be one of their best commodities to trade.... There was no harm in giving it a try with Darko Milicic. They can use him in the high post—he can shoot it out there, and he's an excellent passer.... Eddy Curry has no shot with the Knicks even if he gets himself in shape. He's a post-up guy who'll never be showcased in their system.
