It took longer than expected for Kenyon Martin to find an NBA home this season, but the veteran forward is glad he landed url-5with the New York Knicks.

“I would love to stay a Knick,” he said. “I don’t want to go nowhere. I am proving to this organization what I can be and who I am as a person on and off the court, and I think they see that. I’m here now and I’m going to make the best of this opportunity.”

The Knicks are 13-6 since Martin first played for the team on Feb. 24.

Great article by Gary Washburn from the Boston Globe. I think the entire Knicks nation and organization are happy with Kenyon Martin. The real question is…can Martin stay healthy for the rest of the year and how much will he want, to stay on for next year? Martin has said money is not an issue, but I find it hard to believe he will play his heart out and then come back next year for just the veterans minimum. Time will tell on this subject. I can say this though, Kenyon Martin is welcomed back to this team with open arms!

    KENYON IS JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED!!!
    HE SHOULD RETIRE WITH THEE KNICKS, THE FRONT OFFICE SHOULD MAKE HIM COMFORTABLE, HE’S NOT A SUPER STAR, BUT HOW MANY DO WE NEED?? WITH STATS BACK AND CAMBY AND WALLACE THE NEXT TWO YEARS SHOULD BE GOOD.
    I’VE BEEN A KNICK FAN FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER,I CAN TELL YOU THIS, IT’S BEEN A FEW YEARS SINCE IT WAS THIS MUCH FUN TO WATCH THEM PLAY, THE LAST TIME WAS WHEN PATRICK WAS THE GO TO GUY. LETS HOPE IT STAYS THIS WAY…

    I’d love to see Kenyon Martin back, but Mike Woodson needs to understand a person’s limit regarding minutes played. I think he played Kenyon too much. Hence his sore knee. If he doesn’t limit Carmelo Anthony’s minutes, Carmelo could end up injured again. Woodson needs to reduce JR Smith’s minutes. Look what happened to Kurt Thomas. Hopefully they can bring up someone like Henry Sims by the playoffs. I don’t think you’ll see Wallace, Thomas, or Camby any more this year.
