So, right after the game my wife comes in from hanging w a girlfriend and asks me to take out the garbage AND take the dog out..
Talk about ****ty timing smh .
MDA did nothing wrong. You can second guess all day but that's the beauty of hindsight.
MDA has say 5 options. No matter which one he picks if the ball doesn't end up in the net you're all going to want one of the other four. Do you really think you are all so revolutionary that if you're not all agreeing on the same option it's not the most obvious and therefore easiest to read. Then you're crying he's too predictable.
Rewind to when we imbound to JJ and he off the dribble takes it to the hoop, none of you expect that but it works and thus no one is here moaning about it despite the fact not one of you would have drawn up that play.
You're asking me why they gave the ball to the team's worst offensive player when he's under the rim and wide open....because he was under the rim and wide open? I've seen Chuck Hayes hit that shot and Chuck Hayes is allergic to offense. There's no excuse for that. It directly led to us not having the lead with 4 ticks on the clock. DIRECTLY LED TO IT. As in Jeffries gets the ball under the rim, Jeffries passes up an open layup, we have an empty possession, and now we have to foul to stop the clock. Even with all of the faults of other players that you listed...we still have the lead with less than one Mississippi, two Mississippi, three Mississippi, four Mississippi on the clock if JJ lays it up. And that's not tragic? You need a dictionary bro.
Guess if I was simple in the mind...everything would be fine.
MDA does his job he gets the shot, at worst he gets us one pass from the lead if JJ fakes first, or he draws a foul. Anything! Anything but defers responsibility confirming why most people don't want him here in the first place. This after he just answered his critics by making a much tougher play!
I will take passion about the Knicks 10 times out of 10 over calmly, rationally and clear headed posting of illogical statements like we should trade our core for Bostons.
