wow :man4:

I think Thomas is going to make a lot of changes in the big apple, and the result of these will be positive

before the game, here is what Thomas had to say
Yahoo Sports: Thomas, who replaced embattled GM Scott Layden earlier this week, laid down the law Friday night before New York took on Memphis in the opener of the trip.

"This isn't charity,'' Thomas said. "This is a business, and it's a very tough business we're in and a very public business we're in. We all get paid a lot of money to do what we need to do. If you can't do it, we've got to find somebody else.

"Right now, we need people who can do it.''

One of Thomas' first moves this week was to activate forward Michael Sweetney, who was the ninth pick in the draft. In nine games, he's averaging 1.3 points and didn't play in eight others while active.

"Quite frankly, I don't think we're that good that we can have the (ninth) pick in the draft on (the injured list),'' Thomas said. "We can get an opportunity to see him and also have some flexibility with our roster so we can keep trying to improve this team. ...We don't like where we are.''

In the 29 point win over the Heat, he only played 23 minutes; but in this time period he only shot 2-6 from the field, scored 4 points, and grabbed 6 boards.

According to one of his friends, McDyess thinks he will be traded by Feb. 20th.

that makes two blowout games for the Knicks, two games where McDyess got limited minutes, and 2 games where he struggled
