Thread: Does Brewer getting a 3 year deal mean we definitely made a mistake?

    Also, the guy seems really small. We needed bigger bodies not smaller ones.
    I don't think having Brewer would have necessarily won the game for us definitely not but I do think he would have done a much better job of checking Terry than Jeffries did last night on some possessions. Btw, I haven't been raving about Jeffries I've always felt he was a scrub player he looks OK next to superstars but play him too much & he quickly gets exposed for his complete & utter lack of an offensive game. His defense is not as good as Mike Breen gushes about either. He's OK as a hustle energy player off the bench, nothing more. In certain situations he's a nice player to have, but not trying to guard quick guards that can shoot from the perimeter because he's not good at running over screens.

    "You could tell [I wasn't going to play]," Brewer said. "I had been there a week. I didn't play one game, then was inactive for two games, so I kind of felt it was best to go somewhere else and have a chance to play.

    Another defensive minded player bites the dust under D'Antoni....
    It really is a shame I really did think Corey was excited as hell to be a Knick the first game in uniform you could see it all over his face, he was smiling from ear to ear. This makes several players now that grew disenchanted w/this head coach very quickly & ended up being dealt away before even playing any appreciable amount of games. It's worrysome when the GM is using up trade assets & draft picks to bring in certain players & then those players end up not seeing any playing time under this head coach.

    Be careful talking about MDA like that, a bunch of homers here will degrade you at all costs to defend their boyfriend (MDA)...lol, anyways... I think you are dead on and that Antoni forces good players off of our team because he just doesn't like them because they either don't EXACTLY fit his style of play or they at one point in time were upset that he out-casted them to Antoni Island.

    Also, I personally think that he NEVER wanted the Melo deal to happen because he knew that acquiring Melo and Billups forces him to have to win now with a half-court offense that doesn't fit hit run and gun style of play. If it wasn't for Dolan we wouldn't have Melo now because Walsh wasn't ready to give up anything for him but Dolan forced his hand. So, don't be surprised if both Antoni and Walsh are both gone after the season... I think Dolan wants Antoni gone and he knows Walsh is Antoni's butt buddy so that's probably why he hasn't extended Walsh.

    IMO it will be nice when Antoni's gone and we don't have to worry about having to drop/trade good players (Brewer/AR, ect.) just because the coach isn't smart enough to be able to run an offense around them. He needs the players he wants for his offensive style and without them you see how effective he is.

    Yup exactly. Brewer is exactly what this team is missing ... A guard who can actually guard AND score. And we gave him away for a bag of peanuts because Dumbtoni mismanages everything about this Knicks team. When an NBA team is struggling, a NORMAL coach would put some proven shooters in the game to get some points... ala Novak. Not Dumbtoni, he's been using the same rotation, subs at the same exact time (melo early 4th), and runs the same two plays all game. FIRE D'Antoni NOW!!!

    I said it when it went down that letting Brewer leave because he didn't like D'antoni or think he was going to get minutes was a really stupid move. He would of at least bother Ray Allen in that playoff series. Then he won a ring with the Mavs sitting on the bench.

    Anyhow to be fair that was as much on Donnie as it was on D'antoni. People love to idolize Donnie but he did give into D'antoni's personnel demands a lot to appease him.
