New York Knicks Notes, Quotes 2008-10-30
--There was some question as to whether rookie Danilo Gallinari should play in the opener. He missed a majority of training camp with a bulging disk, and only had four practices coming into Wednesday's game against Miami. "I asked him, 'Can you play?'" Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said. "He said, 'If you want to win, I can play.'" Gallinari got three-plus awkward minutes in the first half and was 0-for-2 from the field.

--Making the last cut was not easy for the Knicks, but team president Donnie Walsh felt safer leaving a perimeter shooter on the roster, so he picked Anthony Roberson over Patrick Ewing Jr. It's a decision that did not sit well with fans, who once watched Ewing's father dominate at MSG. "You start looking at, well, what are our potential needs?" Walsh said. "I think that's where this went down to in the sense that it was felt that in the immediate future, potentially, that shooting could become a problem for this team. So that was the reason for Anthony Roberson, because that's what he can do."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "The only thing determined for sure is that we're not going to lose every game this year." -- Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni, on winning the season-opener.
