New York Knicks Notes, Quotes 2009-10-31

New York Knicks Notes, Quotes 2009-10-31--G Chris Duhon ripped the team after the loss in Charlotte and called out his teammates for having the wrong attitude at the start of the game.

"We lost this game before the game even started," said Duhon, who played a game-high 55:34. "A lot of us weren't taking the game serious, joking around, not really preparing for the game, and it showed.

"We're not that good," he later added. "We can't come in here and joke around and take the game lightly. It shows in our lay-up line, it shows before the game. That's why we come out and we're not ready to play."

The Knicks often had issues at the start of games last season and it has carried over into the new season. Duhon pointed to a lack of intensity at the start.

"It just seems like we're always taking a team's first punch," he said. "We're not going out and punching them first. It takes so much energy for you to come back. Everything's got to go pretty much right for you. It takes a lot out of you."

--Bobcats coach Larry Brown, who spent one season in New York (2005-06) as head coach of the Knicks, said he believed his old friend Donnie Walsh's 2010 plan will produce a high-end free agent. Brown also added that the NBA needs the Knicks to be great.

"It's important," Brown said. "We've got to have New York being successful. I think so many players want to play there, especially the way Mike plays and Donnie. I don't think that's going to be an unrealistic goal. It would be great for our league."
