Just thought I would revisit this thread because even though this season is young, the Knicks are near tops in the league in 3 point % as well as team defense. The Melo-haters favorite phrase "Melo-Iso-ball" hasn't been uttered this season as this team moves the ball around and finds open shots better than any of our teams coached by "Damnphony." And With "Linsanity" gone, turnovers are way down and our KNICKS offense is the most EFFICIENT in the league. Crazy 8's: We love your game threads, but leave the X and O's to more qualified posters.
Kiyaman, I really see you underrated our defenders.
This is how I rate them:
Chandler - A+
Brewer - A+
Shumpert - A
Kidd - A
Thomas - A-
Wallace - B+
Camby - B+
Smith - B
Felton - B-
Melo - B-
Prigioni - B-
I don't see how Chandler can be classed as an A+ defender based on his performances with the Knicks. If he is an A+ defensive player then he needs to start demonstrating it otherwise he's just taking the piss. I rate Wallace's contribution to our defence far more than Chandler's. Kidd has been superb, and Anthony/Smith have been outstanding in their selflessness and defensive contribution.
and actually we are running the Melo-iso (in the post) at twice the rate as last year.
Its quantified, solidified, and indisputable (unless you want to continue to look clueless)
Woody is better than D'Antoni. And I mean that from a "better for NY" stand-point.
We were right. ALmost EVERY single thing some were arguing about (player relations, rotations, quality possessions, post play, defense, etc...)
has come to fruition and is absolutely concluded... They (MDA lovers) didn't and probably still don't know what they were and are talking about. Rewind the tape to coach Woody's takeover, watch and learn.
Knicks still leading the NBA in 3 point % with ten games left in the season. Like I used to tell "crazy" when he used to post here: stick to game threads as your hoops "IQ" is totally whack. :)
20 made three's last night against the wiz ties franchise record:)
