Well before the knicks kick the bucket on sunday,we have to go over yet again what we need to do before our team dies again next year:
1.Either downgrade Dantoni to assistant or bring in a new big name coach(Adelman,Van Gundy,Phil Jackson,Mark Jackson,Larry Brown)
2.Make our offense ISO oriented with Amare and Melo then when help comes kick out to open shooters,AKA play inside out,we have 2 of the best post area players in the league and we need to abuse them down low instead of having them create their shots EVERY SINGLE POSSESSION!
3.Bring in a Legit backup PG that is capable of having our offense run just as smoothly as it was when our starting PG was in the game,we need a Kirk Hinrich type PG that plays both ends of the floor equally as well,Johnny Flinn is rumored to be available and wants out of Minny.
4.We need a Center who isnt just a decent-good rebounder and defender,but a guy who finishes well around the rim and wont need many touches throughout the game.(Deandre Jordan,Etan Thomas,Joel Przybilla,Tyson Chandler,Samuel Dalembert,Greg Oden)
5.Bring Amare to a mentor defensive bigman to tutor him about playing defense the right way and hopefully finds him the passion he is lacking on that end.(Bill Laimbeer,Bill Russel,Hakeem The Dream,Charles Oakley)
6.Resign Donnie Walsh,this needs no explanation.
7.Revamp our assistant coaching staff with more NBA tested vets.(Mason,Oakley,Gary Payton,Bruce Bowen,Mutombo)
8.Use the D-league more to let players develop that are just sitting on the bench all day.
9.Bring in a consistent threat off the bench,someone who we know what we are going to get from every night.(Luke Ridnour,Cj Watson,O.j Mayo)
10.Just bring in a new coach,start fresh,have a coach that the players want to play for because of what he is saying and not for the way he wants the offense to be ran,players respect phil jackson for his demeanor and not cause of the Triangle Offense.I really just want Dantoni gone so we can get a fresh start because we are wasting priceless time on getting Dantoni "The perfect team for his style" and coaches shouldnt have excuses for failure,we need a coach that is going to adjust to what ever happens and take responsibility for their mistakes.Every year we waste looking to make this team suitable for Dantoni,is a year added on to Melo and Amares age.And even if we do get him his perfect team somehow,well history shows us that we still will never win a championship.
Just ask the 04-05' suns who were probably the most talented offensive team in NBA history how good they were in the postseason.
