    Chris Duhon -- NBA

    The New York Knicks -- yes, the Knicks -- are off to a 5-3 start. Chris Duhon is averaging about 7 points per game and isn't getting much pub. But he has 54 assists to just 11 turnovers! Averaging almost 7 assists per game at a 5:1 A/TO ratio is pretty sweet.

    Duhon

    It's interesting that his stats indicate how the team did just like in chicago. When he shoots well the team wins which is very odd for a player that only attempts 7 shots a game.

    In the five wins 50%FG and 44%3pts 10ppg
    In the three losses 25%FG and 25%3pts 5.7ppg

    Starbury still makes 22,000,000 watching Duhon do what he couldn't, win in New York.

    Interesting showdown with Marbury. Marbury wants to go to San Antonio. SA needs a point guard, Parker is out for 4 weeks. SA is 2-5, in last place and is losing round. Time is of the essence.

    But Marbury will not leave a nickle on the table, and won't agree to a buy-out of his contract for less than the full amount due.

    Who would have guessed that Duhon and Blake not only would play in the 24-second league but would be starters. There apparently is a place in the NBA for smart players who get their teammates involved, don't make many mistakes, play good defense and make an occasional shot.

    Duhon has been great since a fairly rocky pre-season and first few games...as a Knick fan I am thrilled.

    The primary scorers are Jamal Crawford, Zach Randolph, Wilson Chandler (2nd year man out of DePaul - a fantastic player) and Nate Robinson off the bench. Q Richardson can fill it up, too. As a result, they don't really need him to score, just push that D'Antoni tempo, distribute, lock down on D and make the uncontested jumper once in a while. When he hits that jumper, his game really comes together. His best lines are usually something like 10 points, 8 assists, 3 steals, 2 turnovers...when that happens, they play well.

    Duhon is definitely in the right place to make a difference. The Knicks have some decent talent but horrible chemistry. Putting in a good point guard who can distribute, handle the ball and play good D can make a huge difference (see Steve Nash).

    This is the first I've heard of Steve Nash playing good defense.

    Steve Nash has to be one of the worst defensive pg's in the league. Whenever Chris Paul comes to town Paul gets about 30 points and 12 assists.

    Starbury

    Every week Starbury's buyout drops almost a million dollars at some point an interested team will help the Knicks buy him out. The Knicks have the worst contracts ever.

    Malik Rose make 7.6 mil averaging 8 mpg
    Curry making 10 mil a year
    Jerome James??? 6.2 mil a year

    These three with Marbury make as much as the entire Grizzles 15 man roster and have scored a total of 11 points

    Zach Randolph making more than Lebron, Wade, Carmelo and Dwight Howard just seems a little off.

    Seems to me that this is often what you get when you buy based on "potential"! I never have understood paying outlandish amounts to players who have never performed at the NBA level. To me it reflects some level of insanity on the part of the owners. It, maybe, also reflects the status of the tax code as to professional athletes.

    Was trying to find the duke players in the NBA page, but after a couple different searches with no luck, I finally found this on the 8th page.

    Duhon had 10 points, 5 rebounds, and 11 assists. Unfortunately, he did have 4 turnovers, but he's still got a great A/TO ratio. Good to see him doing well.

    A double double (points and assists) for Chris and his team won! And with a host of new teammates. Just wait till they actually develop some familiarity with each other and learn the timing that comes with playing together.
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

    Steve Nash is certainly not known as a great defender, but Chris Paul's games against Phoenix have nothing to do with it. Like most offensive NBA stars, Nash rarely guards the opponent's best offensive player - the idea being that it is bad to wear him out on a brutal defensive assignment when offense is what he's there for. This means, in particular, that Steve Nash is rarely defending Chris Paul directly.

    According to ESPN, the Knicks scored 86 points in the first half against the Warriors, and Duhon has 10 assists already with no turnovers! Quite a game.

    End of 3rd quarter: Duhon with 10 points and 18 assists. Also leading the team in minutes played thus far.

    They should have stuck D-mark on him.

    22 assists, 3 turnovers? That's not a bad ratio.

    Chris Duhon (today's game) = Steve Nash

    Here's what Warriors coach, Don Nelson said about Chris Duhon (excerpt from CNNSI article):

    ...''I think Duhon is the story tonight. Wow, what a player,'' Warriors coach Don Nelson said. ''Been watching him on film and seeing him on videos, but seeing him in person is another story. Guy's got the whole package. He looked like Steve Nash out there. Unbelievable performance.

    ''Whether we zoned him, switched him, it didn't matter. He still found a way to hurt us. Really impressive performance.''...

    22 Dimes?!?!

    This would seem even more impressive if it wasn't against the Warriors. That team just doesn't care!
