03:52 PM ET 02.27 | The New York Knicks announced Wednesday that Rasheed Wallace will have to undergo foot surgery to repair a broken bone. He will be out for eight weeks, ending his regular season run and his career in the NBA, once again. The four-time NBA all-star and NBA champion with the Detroit Pistions, retired in 2010 after a NBA finals stint with the Boston Celtics. He came out of retirement to play alongside the Knicks. With the Knicks, Wallace only played in 20 games, averaging 7.2 points and 4.2 rebounds. The Knicks won't remove Wallace from their roster, as they hope he can contribute in the playoffs. Still, it's unlikely he'll return in time given his age and lack of time remaining.

I didn't watch the game... did Shumpert start? Playing a team that had played the night before and also without their all star... this should have been an easy game for us.. yet it had to be difficult... how many points did Curry hang on our guards... hehe

I don't know exactly how this should have been an easy game for us as Lostwill so foolishly stated. I mean if JR, Chandler and Melo don't show up like they almost always do, the Knicks will continue to go into a tailspin. You chumps have all these super expectations for a team who is missing Wallace, Camby, Thomas, and are always missing Stat, Novak, & Kidd it seems. Just look at Kidd's production last night, 19 minutes, 0 pts, 1 ast, 2 rbs, I mean really? Then you have Felton who gets burned on defense always (he had a lucky block on Steph) and seem a least 10-15 pounds heavier and this certainly explains the lost of explosiveness by him. Yeah, while nursing a broken pinky he couldn't stay outta the burger & franks joints. You fools act like the Knicks are a team at full strength. Shutty suckers....Apple!

Look at Shumpert's STATs and tell me why he continues to start... 1 for 6 with a 29% field goal percentage...
