I'm not even gonna debate about Knicksqueens posts the fact you think his posts are good puts you in a minority of 1 on this forum... It's one thing debating with you because you make good points and you respond to people's points. Just spouting the history of MDA on repeat does not a quality post make.
Riley/JVG always had top 5 D's & failed to win us a ring.
So yeah, I'm willing to give MDA a fair chance to see if he can turn a playoff team into a serious contender (without the roster(s) & situation(s) he's been forced to deal with for 3 years.
This is not the finished product or final roster that Walsh will send onto the court as serious Eastern Conf Contenders next year.
We're on the verge of gaining the much needed playoff experience to become contenders next season.
I'm willing to give MDA his 1st offseason (this year) to turn a playoff team into a serious contender with the help of Walsh. Something they've waited 3 years to do.
Sad how your talking about a coach "not leading us to the promise land"; when a coach hasn't led us to the promise land since 72, which means, unless "Phil" is coach; you wouldn't be thankful until coach x, y or z actually "led us to the promise land".
We're still in rebuilding mode, & that won't chance until the offseason. Blame I.Thomas for NY's 2-3 years of losin.
Lets not talk about anyone "spouting MDA's history on repeat" either.
I'm not the one who says he'll "never lead us to the promise land".
And why does one say such a thing? Oh yeah, thats right... Because you base his history of defensive struggles of PHX as a way to "claim" that A) He'll never lead the Knicks to a top 10 defense & B) repeat on repeat mode that he'll "never win us a ring" all because he never did with PHX.
Still wanna talk about spouting the history of another coach on repeat? JFYI: Way before I joined this site, NYKnick fans were spouting his PHX history on repeat for years before I even joined. Just so you know; ya know.
Me? I simply make it known that the ONLY reason why MDA is our coach, is because Walsh loved the type of success that PHX enjoyed under Walsh during the extremely tough years of the Western Conf. Thats the truth. I also judge MDA on his situation here with the Knicks where not only MDA, but no other NBA coach had a chance to win during the 1st two years. Grow up.
Point is KnicksFan half of your posts on this forum say exactly the same thing as another one, like literally may as well be a copy paste.
I appreciate that you actually tried to counter what I said yet instead of actually replying to me you are replying to imaginary things these "MDA haters" have said and not actually what I said.
If you actually read my posts you'd realise I have said over and over and over I know MDA is a successful, talented coach I just don't like him as a fit for NY. What is that based on? His history and record with PHX and NY of not having great defensive teams. I have no hate for MDA and have no qualms about his coaching of the team from 2008-10 (apart from his lack of fundamental knowledge about fouling down the stretch). I also appreciate he has had some success with us this year, it's not been all bad under MDA.
I know the rebuilding process is not complete and part of that rebuilding IMO should include bringing in a coach who can get us playing top 15 defense.
Do you remember MDA saying he wanted the Knicks to be a top 10 defensive team this year? And we are what like 28th? Bottom line MDA does not get the job done on the defensive end, not this year, not last year, not any of his years in PHX. If he changes, great. If not, I hope we make a change, coach-wise.
I'll try my hardest but when posting from a cell phone @ times, the forumn set-up only allows a certain ammount of letters (or maybe it's just my cell phone) but yeah I run out of space to say what I need to say with one post (sometimes) lol sorry Rady but I'll try to improve & cram everything into one post if able to.
Again ppl dont have a proplem with pringles offense i personally think its the best in the biz but most ppl just want balance didnt say the knicks have to be a defensive juggernaut; they t have to be two extremes either but just meet in the middle where championships can be won If MDA can put his ego aside and get the assistant coach who would instill defensive toughness fine i doubt that he does i would rather have a coach that has balance on both ends of the court
