    Default SMH -- Current Rankings

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]: 110.8 (7th of 30) ▪ [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]: 109.8 (23rd of 30)
    PTS/G: 106.8 (2nd of 30) ▪ Opp PTS/G: 105.9 (28th of 30)
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]: 96.0 (2nd of 30)

    Our offense has dropped to 7th. Our defense has actually become worse (who would have thought)...

    MDA is payed 6 million dollars a year to be the best offensive coach in the game... We went from 2nd to 7th.

    It will be a good day when MDA leaves the Garden.

    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.

    Clueless.

    We would have a better rank if DANTONI got fired.

    I just love how we have the most potent offensive scorer in the NBA in Melo. The most dominant power forward in the NBA in Amar'e, and supposedly this brilliant offensive coach, and we dropped 5 spots.

    Ugh boy.

    This leans toward my theory that MDA is not a briliant offensive coahc, he is just good at running his system, which requires a very specific set of players to make work.

    We have lost to every below .500 team since the trade and he is the smart one....


    It amazes me how many people don't know about the mechanics of winning in basketball. Its like children watching a magic show, where MDA is the magician. There is no substance to his act. It looks cool, but there is nothing behind it.... It's flashy and puts butts in the seats, but when it comes down to really laying things on the line, it isn't sufficient.

    It reminds me of My Cousin Vinny.

Let me question the first witness. If after that point, you don't think that I'm the best man for the job, fire me then and there. I'll leave quietly, no grudges. All I ask is for that one chance. I think you should give it to me.

    I looked for the video on youtube, but couldn't find it... I did find a video where Vinny does his opening statement and says, "Everything that guy just said is bull$*3%."

    Was thinking of using that next time someone (one person in particular in mind) put up something stupid, but it might be against the decorum of this board. Haha.

    Can you provide any kind of source that says Mike did not want to make this trade? I've never even heard that suggested anywhere...

    Oh and FYI ranking 2nd in offense is meaningless when you rank 2nd to last in defense... Any team in this league could rank 2nd playing the playground ball we play night in night out.

    This would be likely true, and very damning.

    Except it's been a dozen games, after roster upheaval, where we "lost" in addition to gained.

    But ya, Melon+Billuos here could be an ultimate litmus test for MDA.
