Why do u care if he gets fired or not?? I no longer c u as a knick fan after those ignorant post u said before. OR ARE U JUST "TAKIN A BREAK" like u said before? Go root for the nets
Andre Miller is one of the most underrated guards in the league. He's an excellent passer and a crafty offensive player.
Iggy should have been an all-star this year. He's one of the best defensive guards in the league, and incredibly athletic. He scores about 20 a game, but takes very little shots compared to other players that are the best on their team.
Thaddeus Young is a great, young talent. Dalembert is the shotblocking, rebounding center we've needed.
The Sixers are under achieving right now. If they had D'antoni as a coach, they would be 3rd or 4th in the east.
The Bulls have Rose, who's helped them a lot this year. Ben Gordon is better than most of the players on our team. The Bulls wanted D'antoni, but luckily he chose us.
The Bucks have RJ and Villanueva. They had Redd and Bogut before they got injured. We're close talent wise, but they're still better. But they're overachieving this year, they're playing very hard.
Lee, Robinson, Chandler and Gallinari isn't nearly enough to be anywhere near a playoff spot. Those are all young players. D'antoni has them playing great, and we wouldn't be nearly as good without him. Their mistakes on the court aren't D'antoni's fault.
I cannot believe this thread exists. There is always that guy and this proves it.
Yeah, I don't understand what all the crying is about...Knicks aren't supposed to beat teams like Miami and Philly, the fact that they play them tough with the team that they have is impressive.
If anyone is seriously going to give up on the knicks based on the fact that they suck this year, should just not watch any games until 2010..Right now the mentality has to be we are just as close to the 2nd to worst team in the East as we are to being a playoff team.
Milwaukee, NJ, Chicago, Charlotte, Indiana are just as good/bad as us..one has to get in. Root for the knicks, if they get in great we are the best of 6 30-35 win teams..if we don't then no big deal, make a smart 2009 pick in the draft and keep the rumors coming of Lebron or Wade in 2010.
To me this team in 2010 can potentially be a similar version of the 1998-2005 Sacramento Kings with of course the addition of a superstar.
I agree with mostly every thing you said and I am not ashamed to acknowledge another Knick fan that knows his stuff.
The Knicks were playing well when they were tied for the 8th seed and only 4 games below .500.They caught their worst break during dream weak at the Garden.I really think that if they would of played 3 other teams that week they would of had enough confidence to run away with a playoff spot.Going through losing streaks are very depressing for fans i couldn't imagine how some of those Knicks felt during their 6 game losing streak.As for D'antoni, maybe I got a bit emotional while I was making this thread.Any heart breaking loss is frustrating to take.You watch the Knicks every day with the expectation of seeing them win.This was a very winnable game and they didn't have the basketball IQ to put this one away when they needed to.
who's the better coach? isiah or mike d?
