Melo had to work extra hard b/c of Knicks injuries
Celtics team defense >> Knicks
Options 1 and 2
**** u talkin about f*ggot? Melo sh*tted on Pierced
It was about even
Pierce probably played a little bit better then Melo
Pierce took cornymelo to school on the short yellow bus
I think Pierce is the better or more consistent player as of now.
We definitely might have won at least a couple of game though if we didn't have injuries. Maybe even the series. I believe Anthony Carter could have actually helped us a lot to win at least one game, but D'Antoni didn't play him until it was obvious he should have.
its too bad because melo can easily be the better player if he just tweaks his game a little bit. Pierce is the master of headfakes and herky jerky moves
Pierce had one good game, the other three were below average
I have always liked and respected Paul P., but in this case the experience and cohesiveness of the two teams were the difference maker...
Personally I think Pierce has always been better than Melo. I agree Melo was forcing too much tho. Next year he'll be better.
I think Melo was one of the best players on a horrible Knick team this postseason!
Did Pierce have the upper hand? Sure.
Did he take him to school? Naaaaah. Never.
Melo had that huge game in Boston and generally was pretty much the only offensive player that provided some quality for us.
I'd say Rondo took Douglas to school, Allen took Fields to school and Garnett/O'Neal owned our frontcourt, but Pierce didn't school Melo. Pierce was on the better team, Melo gave his all and was one of the very few decent players for us.
idt pierce took melo to school. he played good throughout the series, but he didn't take melo out to the wood shed or anything. Melo shyted on em pretty badly in game 2. if anything i'd say it was a wash.
I think he was our MIP this year. A good defensive minded coach wouldn't be too bad for him imo.
Look at guys like Carter who played for Riley or Billups who learned a lot from Larry Brown, all defensive minded old school coaches. All Douglas has ever had is Mike 'score 130 points' D'Antoni - let's not forget that.
Lionel Hollins, Larry Drew or Jeff van Gundy could turn him into a premier backcourt defender imo.
