08:06 AM ET 02.06 | On Saturday, Rajon Rondo was still feeling the sting of a sprained wrist, swelling under his right eye from a run-in with Iman Shumpert, Friday's missed free throws and turnovers. Against the Knicks, Rondo was 3 for 8 shooting, twice scoring on drives, once on a jumper; 1 for 4 foul shooting; and committed five turnovers. Asked if the wrist was sore, Rondo replied, "It was, but it felt 100 times better than it was a couple weeks ago." ... Rondo has been treating the injury with ice and wearing a brace. "That's about all I can do," he said. "I mean, you'll see this on me, maybe one or two more games. I would say it kind of bothers me, I want to say, mentally. It's really tight but I have to wear it because of the support."

I gues you found your Chinese Nash in Jeremy Lin. See what happens when a PG controls the game!

The guy went to Harvard so he picked up the offense quickly. A Harvard education pays. That should tell you how dumb Douglas and Shumpert are... what schools did they go to? Bibby runs the offense well but he's a huge liability on defense it's not worth starting him.

For the Knicks the formula is simple. A point guard with court vision is a great asset in getting the ball to the players in their sweet spots. This should help Melo and STAT as well... hopefully this is the beginning of something good....

Shumpert went to GaTech -- one of the "Top 5" engineering schools in the nation.

I like Shumpert, but I am willing to bet he is no engineer.

he's probably no stephon marbury, either.
