    u dont know Dolan....the guy is a question-mark when it comes to Knicks/Rangers

    As long as fans fill up the seats in MSG arena Dolan dont care if they Boo or clap.
    All Dolan knows is Dantoni was a celebrity big name coach out west, and
    Stat & Melo are big name star players to raise prices in MSG.

    Dantoni's coaching performance been begging to be FIRED since the 1-9 start
    in the 2009 season with DNP the majority of the roster.

    This is not looking good for us as a building franchise....I wouldnt have minded
    the two losses vs Raptors/Bobcats if a decent amount of playingtime minutes
    were given to rookie Jordan, Jorts, Shump, and role-players Novak, Walker,
    Balkman, and Bibby to get them rotating in an offense/defense system.
    The 35 and then 28 3-ball shot attempts is not the way to put an offensive-
    system that works on getting oponents in foul trouble, getting to the foul
    line, creating screens for open layups or alley-oops to our 3 bigs.

    Mike Dantoni have to be FIRED ASAP....so the Knicks could work on a simple
    offense/defense system of team-ball that coach Mike Woodson establish with
    Detroit & Atlanta. This crazy 66 close game schedual is the perfect outlet for
    us to use a 10+ man rotation to find same-page trio-combination and same-
    page quadruble-combination of players in this 15 man roster for keepers for
    the 2012-13 season.

    standing still on the 3-ball line (Dantoni), no movement without the ball from
    Stat & Melo, and when Stat & Melo are doubled they rarely pass the ball,
    plus the two superstars cant average one assist from each other per game.
    And the two superstars has been FAKING on the defensive-end of the court.
    I hate to bust your bubble of thought....but TD is not the same scoring-punch
    guy we drafted out of college, and Fields is definately not the same player
    that crashed the offense & defense boards with put-backs, blocks, steals,
    and slashing to the hoop we drafted from college.
    Dantoni's coaching stunt their growth with this foolish wide 3-point offense
    with no type of defensive system to run back-on.
    TD & Fields never favored 3-Ball shooting in college....the two found millions
    of ways to score inside or 15 feet from the paint. Their defensive hustle in a
    system made them strong candidates for the NBA draft (late pick or not they
    were a blessin for the Knicks as finishers.).

    The pick n roll with Stat needs more than just TD & Stat when oponents
    keep doubling on Stat, that is what stop Stat consecutive 30 point run last
    season (Stat refuse to pass the ball to other teammates when double), or did
    u forget Stat kept forcing shots when doubled?

    Carmelo always had great screens from Camby, Nene, Birdman, and K.Mart to
    get to four of his favorite spots to be a high scorer on the Denver Nuggets.
    Dantoni has not design any play where Stat & Tyson screen for Melo to get
    to a certain spot for an open shot....all we see is stand-still catch n shoots
    with everyone on the peremeter. Give me a break.
    Knicks ex-coach JVG design easy plays for Ewing & Oakley to screen for
    Starks & Houston for 15 to 20 foot jumpers. Which brings me back to our
    young guards "TD & Fields" never having Tyson, Stat, or Melo screen/pick for
    them to get an open shot. is that team-ball? every guard in the NBA gets all
    kinds of screens/picks from their bigmen....except TD & Fields.

    Did Tyson Chandler come out of the paint to screen for CP3? Damn near on
    every offensive play u seen CP3 speed swift pass Tyson bigman defender to
    the hoop. u dont think TD could do that? TD did it in the Kings game making
    DMarcus Cousin want to be traded after the game. ha ha ha
    I'm not going to discuss Anthony and Stoudamire at the moment despite being far from pleased with their contribution on both ends of the court. The reason is that -for me- Fields and Douglas have performed far worse to the extent where I feel they contribute more to the appalling display on offence. Regardless of whether or not they are getting screens off anyone, both Fields and Douglas take predominantly free shots and consistently miss. Whereas with Douglas it is mainly a result of his non-existant Basketball I.Q (Taking quick threes continuously expecting to get a different result to previous attempts), with Fields it's just a lack of talent as he has found himself in exceptionally good shooting positions near the basket and has been allowed up to 2 seconds to shoot yet still decides to brick it. Fields can be useful on defensively, but as long as Douglas is given lots of minutes (and especially as a PG) no one should expect to see anything different on offence to what we have already witnessed.

    Against the Wizzards, it should be:

    Bibby
    Shumpert
    Anthony
    Stoudemire
    Chandler

    starting

    Shumpert
    Anthony
    Stoudemire
    Chandler

    starting
    1) its to early to put "rookie" Shump in the starting lineup, to much pressure.
    2) Shump & Bibby should be coming off the bench as a duo
    3) TD have to learn to work with Fields on offense as well as they do on defense
    4) Although Shump & Fields embarrased Detroits backcourt of Knight & Gordon
    on both ends of the court, I wont put alot of emphasis on their performance
    over bum-coach Frank with a rookie PG-Knight and a lost Ben Gordon.
    5) Rookie Shump should be getting familiar to NBA-ball and his teammates by
    having the same partner in the backcourt, be it Bibby, Fields, or TD.
    6) Mike Dantoni is the worst coach to develope young players into the NBA....
    our young players TD, Fields, Shump, Jorts, wouldve never made it off the
    bench in college shooting 3-ball shots like they been doing on the Knicks.
    This is why Dantoni cant coach in the NCAA....Dantoni type players ha ha ha ha
