David Lee, Poster Boy

If you've ever been to the Garden, you'll know that the mob is tough to please. We want our basketball, and we expect our team to deliver. If the Knicks aren't putting up the numbers, they'll hear it from us. Maybe that's why we didn't have much of a home court advantage last season (20-21). But in spite of the erratic performance of the team, there was always one unwavering constant - David Lee, Mr. Double-double. Night in and night out, Lee went to work, and we honored him for it. Whenever he got to his feet, the Garden roared with approval.

David Lee brings more than just a solid player to the table. He may not have the fancy footwork or power of other forwards like Amare Stoudemire or Dwight Howard, but he has other intangibles. He has the composure to steady the game, the hustle to dive for the loose balls, and the grit to play through bad calls. Playing 81 games, 35 mins each, he has the tenacity to turn up and turn in the quality play the Garden demands.

It's not just the numbers either. As any player will tell you, momentum is a huge part of the game. A 20 point deficit is as depressing as the gloom that settles on the fans when they see it. Anyone who can elicit cheers, howls and whistles just by standing up is invaluable.

Come on, Donnie. Sign him already.
