I wouldnt get too excited about any of this going down.. havnt we learned anything from Lebronfest and the Melo drama and the cp3 circus.. Howards a huge nba name that will be thrown around all year to generate interest and debate while nba teams try to play like nba teams after the lock out.. sadly the Knicks look like one of most effected.. Ive watched every minute of every game and they are borderline unwatchable.. ive seen more organization and fluidity on a NJ playground.. Ive also started my own stat tracker for Amare and his heaved and missed elbow jumpers per game that drive me to drink my self to sleep after each game.. They truely need a floor general and a leader at pg.. another center or front court player is just going to be another player lost on the court heaving shots up. chasing open shooters on the perimeter and geting beat out the backdoor every other play. I would def be up for trading stat and did not want him to begin with but only for a top notch point gaurd and thats it..
Melo and Shumpert are the only untouchables to me. But I feel dirty even thinking about this THIS early.
We never had any chance at CP3. Once we signed Melo, it was over already. CP3 wants to be in NY but he won't take a massive paycut to do it.
If its Dwight and Turk for Amare and Chandler, I'd say hell yeah. We paid too much for both anyway. I'd offer them Fields too and pretend Shump was injured or something
so at 2-4 knicks fans
I guess the celtics who started 0-3 should trade every one away
the lakers who are 4-4 should trade every one away
the clippers should get rid of blake griffen they are only 3-2 with chris paul
The raptors are 3-3, I smell championship
the 76rs are in first place at 3-2 we will never catch them
The Cavs are 3-3 they must be as good as the lakers
The mavs are 3-5 fire carlisle trade dirk immediately
are we really that ignorant to not recognize what this lock out has done to the league thus far
only the heat, bulls, and blazers look like they are ready for the playoffs; the rest of the league is still trying to figure out what time of day it is whent hey travel across the country.
this isnt about trading players and starting AGAIN for the what ? 8th time in 4 seasons
for christ sakes people get a grip here
we need a new coach
you know im an avid dantoni hater, probably the biggest here if you read my DFDH Fire Dantoni Volumes entering the playoffs last season.
this is a winning team
with a bogus head coach
we have shooters, scorers, shot blocking, an elite small forward youth and veteran leadership and an MVP candidate from last year in amare who is still getting his **** together from a back injury; which has seemed to hamper only his jump shot this year, being that he is still finishing strong around the basket and put up 25-12 the other night in a game where we lost because of team defense, not AMARE defense.
there is no reason why with the right game plan and the right mentality in preparing for other teams offenses we cant be among the top teams in this league
this should be turned into another fire dantoni thread, because if we get dwight howard
a line up
would be having the same struggles as
with less scoring at the PF position
and there is one reason for this
OUR COACH CANT COACH DEFENSE.
end of story.
Once our defence improves, we will be good. the offence comes with experience and instinct in this system of possessions.
u get a rep +1 fro that post bro
The Knicks will get back their defensive prowess and Stat ends his carrear in his home state. hmmm, sounds very interesting.
At the moment, since we aren't really running plays.... Stat is struggling. He gets most of his shine when melo is resting. I don't see those 2 together on the court under this system. A different coach would be able to use them both by actually making plays for them. As of now... it's all run and gun and one of these guys is not going to get their proper shine as long as we keep D'Ant.
well lets put it this way, if we get howard and hes no good he probably will still be good enough to trade for something else.
keep Renaissance man, past his prime, uninsured contract, liable skills, best to get rid of this before we cant.
