    Default Mozgov Amazing

    Well the Eurobasket tournament has ended. I watched all of the games played by Russia, France, Spain and Lithuania and about 90% of all the other games.

    I cannot believe how good Timofey Mozgov was. He was immense for Russia and looks like a completley different player than the one he was when playing for the Knicks. He was the defensive force in Russia`s defence, which incidentally was the best D team in the whole tournament. Blocking shots, clogging up the paint, rebounding, he was doing everything. On the offensive end he was also a giant. His scoring from the pick and roll was a joy to watch and that has improved so much since being seen in a Knicks jersey.

    The same problem of foul trouble was still evident but as the tournament wore on he improved that. He looked exactly like the kind of big that we are so desperately screaming out for. How ironic that we had him and now he`s back wasting his immerging talent in Russia.

    He deserved better from our no D-Toni clown.

    Please accept my apoligies fellas. I suppose this should have been posted in the NBA section not on the Knicks section. If that`s the case then could some kind mod move it?

    Sorry for giving you mod guys the extra work.

    Angry Mozgov was a 6 year KEEPER

    Mozgov was a Bigman-rookie to the NBA and this country.
    Mozgov raw talent showed to be a great backup center.

    Jordan Hill was a Bigman rookie and the perfect PF to backup Amare.
    Anthony Randolph was an athletic spring-board to rebound & blockshots
    at either PF or SF position.

    These three Bigmen are not double-digit scorers they are defensive
    anchors for the paint (STOPS!).
    These bigmen wouldve been great for us if we had a defensive-scheme
    or format to fit them into.
    The only reason a headcoach would DNP these bigmen is b/c the team
    have a better defensive-bigman.

    Did the Knicks have a better defensive-bigman???

    I appreciate the update on Mozgov, Scipio. That's great.

    Aside from Turiaf, who was injured a lot, no. Mozgov finally getting to play only because of too many injuries is a joke. It wouldn't surprise me if D'Antoni still wouldn't have played him if it wasn't for that. It also wouldn't surprise me if D'Antoni only picked Fields as a starter as a PR move to quiet a lot of doubters.

    Wasn't his contract a 3 year deal with the option of termination after the first year?

    Did Denver pick that up?

    I'd love to see The Gov back in NYC.

    Looked it up and it doesn't say anything about a team option this year. Says he's a FA in 2013.

    Unlike Jorts he was a legit 7 footer who had above average athleticism, that's valuable in the NBA, wish we didn't give him up.

    Was thinking the same thing! I'm sure they did, as I believe they are losing Nene, right?

    What was reckless about the Knicks the past three seasons was
    the coaching of the bigman rotation....didnt have a clue.

    One would think the headcoach wouldve had strong interest in
    jellin all the Knicks contracts that went into the 2010-11 season
    during the 2009-10 season.....but he didnt.
    u also wouldve thought the Knicks had plans on keeping fan favorite
    David Lee when Amare and Felton committed to signing with the Knicks
    when at the same time negotiation with 7.0 C-Mozgov were in the final
    days before the Lee trade.

    The Knicks had 4 defensive bigmen to rotate in the frontcourt with Amare
    lastseason in "Mozgov, Turiaf, AR, and Chandler". Each of these 4 bigmen
    had 4 valuable fouls to give in a game protecting the paint.
    It was PG-Felton & Dantoni duty to patiently work-on inside scoring from
    each of these bigmen as the season went on.....but they didnt.

    Whenever this season get under way we will see the big difference in having
    an average PG-Felton vs an All-Star PG-Chauncy Billups who is capable of
    getting all 4 players in his lineup to score early in the first quarter (players
    like BigBen and Nene).

    here we go again

    lets hold onto this guy who avg 2 ppg and like 3 rebs a game

    and randolph who shoots nothing but bricks, and only looks good on a team like the timberwolves

    and jordan hill who averages 5 ppg and 5 rebounds, being placed on the bench behind a 6 foot 6 center on the rockets lol

    lets hold onto these chumps for Carmelo anthony and Chauncy Billups


    Kiya would love for the knicks to be the timberwolves for the next 5 years.

    I love it.
