All year the Knicks have been looking for a “big” to step up and help Tyson on the defensive end of the court. All year little has happened in that help. After the news came out that Rasheed Wallace had a fracture in his foot, which will require surgery and will most likely keep him out for the year, the Knicks finally signed Kenyon Martin to a 10-day contract. If this deal is renewed for the rest of the year, which I suspect will happen, the New York Knicks will have gained a player, if who healthy, can give you that expertise and savvy on the defensive end of the court. In this article by Al Iannazzone in Newsday looks into the mind of Kenyon Marin. “My knowledge of the game helps me out there a lot. It’s the same stuff on every team, just changing the names of it,” Martin said. “But I think I do a pretty good job paying attention to detail, watching tape, scouting, stuff like that, which is more than half the battle. When you get out on the court, if you know what your opponent’s going to do, it makes it that much easier.” “I’m just going to be me,” Martin said. “If what I do merits for me to be here the rest of the year, then I will be. And if not, then I won’t. But I think the way my game is and the way I play, I’ll let my play speak for itself.” Listening to Kenyon Martin I can’t help but think the Knicks have found the perfect player for them. I realize Kenyon is 35 and has maybe lost a step, but watching him last night for his brief stint in the Warriors game, I understood he could be a valuable find for the New York Knicks moving forward this year and maybe next. The question is what does Kenyon have left?   Peter A – Knickswag The post Kenyon Martin the Perfect Fit for the New York Knicks? appeared first on Knickswag - A New York Knicks Blog - News, Rumors, and more!.
