There's been so much talk about Jermaine O'Neal's performance in Game 1 that I'm starting to think it's more hype than truth.
Not so. The bloggers at Poasting and Toasting did an excellent job in their podcast breaking down Jermaine's impact. Even when Jermaine wasn't blocking shots, he was often in perfect position on help defense.
Using Shawne Williams to space the floor and cutting back door are two options the Knicks have to combat the roaming JO. Let's see if Mike D'Antoni makes any adjustments.
Great job, Jermaine!
