    WHO HATES HIM......
    Nate Robinson..now on his 3rd team
    Harrington ...being benched for New Knicks....
    Larry Hughes...career done
    Marbury.....China boy

    That's all that you know who hate him. Maybe hate was a strong word... Maybe they dislike him because of his coaching style and limited minutes he gives to his bench. You can add Curry to that list as well now as well as AR and Brewer. I'm just saying what I think just like you are, no hard feelings.

    Donnie Walsh gets them here and D'Antoni sits them ....He never liked Marbury from Phoenix days and any one who questions his decisions gets sent to the bench.....he cant do that with Amare, Melo, or Billups though...lol

    That's the best part about it. Our big 3 has more power than the coach really does and that's why we're all of a sudden playing D for more than a few plays a game and it's also why our rotation expanded as well.

    He never liked Marbury.....

    Thats a big plus in my book........Marbury was a real leader he really did alot for the Knicks....

    then he cried that the pick sent on him against minny was illegal....he ran into a hard pick and hurt his shoulder....

    Running Marbury out of town was 1 of the things MDA did that I always liked.

He never gave AR much of a chance either & first game out in Minny where he plays over 20 minutes he goes & puts up 19 & 10. We've also seen Darko put up some solid #'s for the T'Wolves & be a defensive presence in the paint this season, something we really could have used all year. It would be nice if our head coach could detach himself from playing personal favorites & just go with the players that have the most talent & skillset to get the job done out on the floor. Trust me I would much rather have seen Brewer get play instead of buying him out to clear way for Jeffries, but there's no sense in growing frustrated over something we know we have no control over anyway.

    On a happier note, I was pleased to see Roger Mason get some minutes at the end of the game today, I think he's conducted himself like a true professional ever since he got here when he could have very easily grown frustrated & asked to be bought out instead because he wasn't getting any minutes. It's not like he was some end of the bench scrub where he was playing before either, he was a starter for a championship calibre team not too long ago. My guess is his attitude is what made DW choose to keep him around, maybe he thinks having guys like that around will be good for some of our young guys like Douglas, Walker, Rautins & Fields to emulate. I guess I can understand that kind of reasoning. I don't think we bought Brewer out because of a bad attitude though, he wasn't here long enough for MDA to even get any type of feel for him at all. I just think MDA had it resigned in his brain that the Knicks would bring his boy Jeffries back which pretty much left Brewer out in the cold with no role to play, so Donnie did his agent a solid & waived him so he could catch on with another team like the Mavs where he could have a role in a playoff run, who I've heard are planning on signing him to a multi-year extension when he clears waivers at around the $2 million dollar range per year. At least he's not signing with the Celtics or Heat. That woulda been insult to injury.
    Word is that Brewer also saw that he wasn't gonna get any shine with D'Antoni and his agent said to Donnie let him go take his talents elsewhere and they granted his wish....Im not happy with that decision but I have to live with it and hope he shows why he would have been great here some place else

    Yea he told his agent (Happy Walters) that he wanted out because Antoni told him his play time would be "very limited". He's too good for "very limited" playtime. Hell anyone of his caliber would want out of that situation...I know I would.

    Hopefully this wins DW a little pull with some of his agent's future clients. If it's a scratch my back I'll scratch yours type of move then I can accept that.

    They ended up wit team which -- still -- have a better chance of winning a title this year. That's all. If your career is almost over (Bibby) or you couldn't win anything yet, although you are reasonably talented (Murphy), you go for the more safe bet. That's an easy decision and has got nothing to do with hating a coach.

    This one was a walk in the park.

    Don't really get all the Jefferies hate on here. He was hated as a member of the 2 year clear out team, because he didn't have a suitable role.

    He does now. As crap as his offense is, his height and defensive presence is sorely needed with our current line up.

    We need to work on our perimeter the most

    The hate with JJ lies with the fact he has a bad history with our organization back in the Isiah days and also that we gave up a multi-talented guy in Brewer that could defend and rebound just as well as him and also could score 11 a game for a one-dimensional defender.

    Anyone else think that CP3 has already mentally checked out of NOLA? He just doesn't seem to have any heart and desire. Maybe its his injury but I think he just wants to get traded ASAP.

    On a side note, why does everyone still think we need another backup PG? Between Billups, TD and Carter we are fine in the PG position. I think this team only needs a legit C to compete for a chip.

    I think because until last night many people didn't consider TD a real option to backup Billups. We still have yet to see if he can consistently repeat the kind of performance he had last night against the top teams. Carter for all his qualities is not going to be a real scorer-disher for us.

    Perfect scenario would be Paul coming in as our new #1, TD developing as a solid backup option and Billups on his last legs providing limited but valuable minutes as well as wisdom for the two younger players.

    Went to the game last night... paid $150 for the nosebleed in Section 403 Row E

    The atmosphere was rocking.. you could just shiver from the positive vibes

    The merchandise stores? packed, long lines... even after the game there were crowds fighting for space to get their jerseys at the tables outside.

    Melo jerseys everywhere (got mine in black and orange, wish that was a uniform!!!)

    I've been a rabid and stubborn Knicks fan since I was in a kid in East New York back in the late 70s, and suffered so much through the shortcomings of the 90s and the debacle of the past decade... it feels so fuuuuuucking great to have a great team again that gives me hope of finally seeing a title... GO NY GO NY GO!!!!!!
