    Default The Problem Isn't our Super Stars, the coaches, Dolan....It's

    The fact we need a PG.

    AND BADLY

    Many times last night, our offense completely looked lost. Standing still, looking like they didn't know what to do on the court. Interesting statistic. I forget the percentage but any time the knicks move the ball and have more than 3 passes, the scoring percentage sky rockets. How many times did Melo or Amare get the ball and shoot the ball immediately. Or Tony Douglas checks in to the game and the first thing he does is shoot.

    The offense needs a competent true PG who can run the floor put players in to their positions, and run plays effectively. We have all the talent in the world, but unfortunately both of our super stars are use to playing with Great PG's.

    We are seeing the result of not having a good PG. Yes we will win some games on sheer talent alone, (Boston). But last nights game should make it painfully obvious to all of us that we will not make it far with out a PG. To many scorers not enough facilitators.

    Right now we need to see what Jeremy Lin can do until Diddy gets back. Tony Douglas is a small SG, and Melo SHOULD NOT be handling the ball more than a dozen possessions. I can promise you all once we get a competent PG who can run the floor, setup our scorers in positions and run the P&R, it'll be scary to play the Knicks.

    People also need to stop blaming Dantoni. This isn't his fault. He does not have a PG to run his system. Trying to force Tony Douglas in to that is like trying to put a square peg in to a circle hole, it is just never going to fit. Our last hope resides on B Diddy and Jeremy Lin. Shump, Douglas are combo guards who should really be playing the 2.

    If LIN was not a Harvard Graduate we would have no hope...

    Based on the dude being smart and a Bball player we are hoping he can be the perfect fit with Melo and Stat,,,,,,

    and PG position we have nothing to lose....

    hope we start that way tonight or if TD goes bad then end that way tonight,,

    Last night game -vs- GS....Knicks got out-rebounded by a nonrebounding
    team. GS is known for being a nondefensive-team but it was hard to tell with
    GS man to man defense of Rush, Mcguire, Wright, and Lee defending Knicks
    Tyson, Amare, Melo.

    The Knicks offense looked stagnated with an open offense with everyone on
    the peremeter like statues waiting to see what Melo or Amare is going to do
    with the ball. u cant screen/or pick for a non-movement Amare/Melo.

    The Knicks poor bigman defense from Tyson/Amare/Melo lost to GS, there
    was no co-existence or chemistry on the defensive-end of the court from
    Tyson/Amare/Melo

    All agreed but a PG changes most of those situations specially the offensive ones.

    Can't really blame TD. Melo and Stat are players that can score without the assist...even Landry can too. The problem is the movement, positioning and lack of play calling/schemes. There are better PG's 4sure but that isn't going to help if we continue to play the style of ball we currently are playing.

    I know coach is trying to use the 'Instincts" philosophy. Yes, B'Ball is all about confidence, but that comes with rhythm. To have any kind of flow going on... you need to have your players on the same page. TD played as well as any average PG, the issue was in the way the game was flowing. We played a game of reacting before thinking...as usual.

    I'm still waiting on D'Ant's "offensive genius" to show up. The "continuation" of the fleecing of defenses in his post-Nash era.

    Toney, and the lack of rebounding aside, GSW only had 84 points with like 5-6 mins left in that game, regardless of why they had so few points compared to the 100s teams had in years past....they still only had 84 points.

    A few stops and some competent offense and that game is ours. But what I saw was 2 superstars who really didn't have all that much confidence in their teammates, and a supporting cast that was given the opportunity to over-think it, and then decide to clear out and let their big guns do their thing.

    You don't GIVE the supporting cast a chance to have mental absence/timidness if you have them setting off-ball screens, down screens, baseline curls, pin downs, ANY ****ING THING!!!!

    If you allow your 4th, 5th, and 6th best players on the roster the chance to DECIDE to be absent on plays. You've failed. A mental or physical mistake is sightly more tolerable than chosen absence and impotence.

    Michael Andrew D'Antoni, where the **** is your offense bro?


    Same ol' ****, aint it?

    nail on the head... the fact is O'antoni can not coach without a good PG. you would think that he would at least run a play to get STAT or melo in the post.. where is our post game... this is BS....i cant watch this $hit....

    the only thing that a lack of a PG tells us is how bad of a coach this dude really is.. so one dimensional....this is a joke and a half
