In response to BostonProSportsLover's comment:
kenyon martin is a beast, has a lot left. shooting 70+% and has been channelling his inner kg in the middle with better board and boxout skills. he's exactly what we needed as a backup plan to kg. this isDA. he was available for 10 day contracts. has been a model citizen in Ny... jeez!
I agree with you 100% !!!
I copy & paste from a post I made similar comments about Kenyon a few days ago.
Why we did not go after Kenyon Martin, Knicks, who got 19 points and 11 rebounds the other night and we continue to being outrebounded most of the time. Wasn't he available for us to pick up ??? With him, I'd felt more confident going into the playoffs especially if we face the Heat as Kenyon is a banger when LeBon & Wade drive to the basket & would give us maybe 10 rebs per game.
The following is a response...it is not necessary to say from whom.
Because Kenyon Martin is a knuclehead who has thrown every coach he has ever played for under the bus.
He's had ONE good game since he joined the Knicks...............geez!
Then a couple of days later I posted again:
Hmmm??? Seems Kenyon had another pretty good game with 18 pts and 7 rebs, 2nd only to Carmelo's 8 in NY beating Raptors last night by 26 pts. Don't you think that "Birdman' is a knucklehead yet he is instrumental in providing "D" & rebs when the stars, LeBron, Wade, Bosh etc. rest. I think we could have gotten him too although I would have hated seeing that tattoed body in our hallowed Green !!!
Same responder commented:
Last night? So..............when I posted it, it was one, right?
And tonight watching the Knicks/Celtics, announcer said that Kenyon has provided a spark for NY and has filled a need as has Birdman for Miami. Both of these guys were available to us.
It's not only we are outrebounded on the offensive boards but on the defensive boards I've never seen teams make so many tap ins of their missed shot as against us !!!
