Wallace, who had been serving as Tyson Chandler's backup at center, has missed the past four games, during which the Knicks have gone 2-2. With Wallace out, Chandler has been playing additional minutes. Not only is Wallace out, but Marcus Camby has plantar fasciitis.

Age may be catching up with the Knicks.

its not just that averys defense helps compensate for others mistakes...its also that it seems the team just plays harder when they see how much effort he is giving out there on defense.

for a team that seems to be turning defensive intensity on-and-off it would help seeing this kid giving 100% no matter if he is guarding jameer nelson or Dwayne wade

Right below Nikola Pekovic and right above Shane Battier.

If/When Avery Bradley has as big of a jump this season as Nikola has so far, then watch out, NBA - BOS's coming. :)

I don't think the Knicks are too concerned at losing Wallace or Camby. They weren't expecting much more from those two other than to hold the fort until Amare returns, which is just about now.

Bradley may certainly help. But I don't think the pressure he puts on the opposing guards will entirely compensate for the fact that the big men cannot rotate or stop pick and rolls right now.

Our "big men" last year were Greg Stiemsma and Ryan Hollins. 

Plz.

They still got Kurt Thomas. He can hold down the fort while those get better.

Knicks should be fine.

Oh, so Rondo's actually going to try to defend when Bradley comes back?

I think Bradley will start doing for the Celts what Tebow did for the Broncos last year. Suddenly the defense will start playing real well and they'll look like an actual team that can and does pull out games. Then other players will get the credit.

No, Bradley will help cove up Rondo's defensive breakdowns.

"We’re going to be a completely different team, just with one player coming back," said Rondo, whose frustration and desire for a change in the Celtics’ 13-13 start couldn’t be more feverish. And then there’s this corollary to the last comment: "I think (Bradley is) the X Factor. He’s going to be the key to why we win the championship. He brings a lot to the team in terms of intangibles, the way he cuts offensively. His pressure defensively is going to raise everyone else’s pressure. His defense is going to make us a lot better."

a new quote from Rondo...he's really putting alot on Bradley..hopefully he takes the pressure to heart and performs

Rondo is putting way too much pressure on Bradley.  Can anyone explain to me how exactly Avery is going to improve our paint defense, rebounding, and shot-blocking woes?

Look, I love Bradley, and I think he is going to help us in many ways.  But he is definitely not our key to winning a championship.
