You fault MDA for the drop off? Are you blind bro? Do you not know that MDA was 100% against this trade? Do you not know that MDA has been forced to start 3 starters who's only been here for 12 or fewer games? Jesus christ. Blame the man for everything? When A) He was against this trade & B) Starting 3 brand new starters who's NEVER played in this offensive system? Pathetic. Wanna talk about MDA getting 6 million per? Funny. How much do both Amare & Melo get paid per? Exactly. Billups is also due 12M next year. I rest my case. PROOF that the PLAYERS are more important to the success of the team than the quote on quote "coach".
Also... It's a credit to MDA as a great offensive coach that the Knicks EVER ranked 2nd with that starting 5. Felton was nothing before both MDA & Amare. Felton cant even start over the backup in Lawson who was backing up Billips. Gallo was a European player we found somewhere in the Italian leagues, Fields is only a rookie & Mozgov was ONLY averaging 2 pts & 3 rebounds per.
