Do anyone recall the co-existence of Stat & Shaq under coach Dantoni?
The Knicks dont have any floor leadership to get pass the first-round of the
playoffs with a healthy Melo/Stat/and Chandler.
Chauncy Billups leadership service for only 2 seasons wouldve given the
Knicks a co-existing chemistry system on both sides of the court for the
next 5 seasons. Waiving Billups took the Knicks backwards to the 2005 Knicks.
Tyson Chandler, Amare, and definately Melo, all NEED a playoff experience
floor leader like Billups to call the shots for 48 minutes, practice, and
lockerroom discipline....the average PG (Rondo, Nelson, Felton, Miller, ect.)
can not controll the BIG-EGO Melo/Stat from wanting the ball on every
offensive-play. The Knicks are back with their "individual-performance" with
no chemistry, and no team-defensive-system to help Tyson Chandler.
Assistant coach Mike Woodson took the job on the strength of Billups
being a Knicks.
P.S. for some reason the waiving of Billups has alot to do with Carmelo
Anthony/Dantoni.....and why Amare stayed in Florida wanting no parts of the
conspiracy....the 5 cancelation of Amare mini-camp during the lockout is now
making SENSE with alot of clairity...
Im taking all comments now so after the 66 game season and the
Melo-first round knockout I can say, "I told u so"
