Curry Out of Shape; Knicks Not Looking Strong

When asked about the chances of becoming respectable, D’Antoni quipped, "I’m just trying to get Donnie to schedule more games. If we played 120, we can win a nice number."

D’Antoni has a sharp sense of humor, but will it last if things continue to deteriorate. Already, Eddy Curry has reported in lousy shape and could be useless in the run-and-gun. Danilo Gallinari looks to be headed for a bust of a rookie year. Lingering back pain will have the Italian Stallion on the sidelines most of camp.
