    A system with a running-bigman and running PG.
    The KJ & Barkley show....do u recall
    The Kidd & Matrix show....do u recall
    The Starbury show was to slow with SG-J.Johnson, SF-Marion, PF-Stat, and C-Chambers....
    however Starbury did go 6 games in a series with the Championship Spurs. But....
    Phoenix Star-Player $17M per Shawn Marion wanted another speedy PG like
    KJ or Kidd or Stocton so the Suns could stay a run-run-run team in Phoenix atmosphere.
    hmmm just as many as J Kidd, RJ, and KMart went with the Spurs in the finals that year. But Starbury had a game winning 3 pointer, making him more clutch and a better all around player then Ason Kidd ever dreamed of being

    *EDIT*

    Almost forgot what I came here to say...

    STAT is the problem.

    His nickname says it all...

    All hes ever cared about is Stats, maybe if he made a few hustle players here in there...

    His decision making when his jumpers not falling for him reminds me of a Rookies, just like his defense

    The added muscle has taken more of his athleticism away, almost as much as those Knee surgeries took

    Amerie must get his shot blocked more then any other player in the league

    Amare making 100 million is a good enough reason for the NBA to have not settled the strike, Id pay him half that to retire. The Knicks are back? FOH with that sh*t unless u mean it clown...go back to the Sons. Nash is the only reason why Amare's making that 100 milli, he should give at least half that to Nash.

    I used to think Bosh was the softest player in the league. Its very clear now that Amerie Stouderetire is the softest, most overrated PF in the NBA. No team could ever win a championship with him in the starting lineup

    Glen Grunwald has no pull, no clue, a pawn in the D'oh-lan empire.

    4 years of no real PG (other than stinky Puhon) to run the MDA SSOL.
    it could have been Marbury, but MDA benched him for personal reasons.
    N8 could have tried, but MDA booted him for personal reasons.
    Felton could have run the show for 2 years, but once again, D'oh-lan stepped in and
    traded away 3 years of rebuilding for Melo, with Zeke's encouragement.

    It's been downhill ever since the last time Knicks went to the Finals, and why
    is that? James F*cking D'oh-lan! He's responsible for Sprewell leaving, for
    Camby leaving (2 main factors of the last finals squad). He's responsible for
    Jeff Van Goody leaving, and for Donnie Walsh leaving. He's responsible for
    hiring Zeke, and MAKING him GM AND coach at the same time.

    This team has needed a quality PG to run the show and passed on a number
    of guards in the draft... Jennings, Lawson, Augustine, etc. It all comes back
    to the top... an idiot a-hole runs the show, someone who spends 3/4 billion
    refurbishing Garden to make it more appealing to high-roller corporation$,
    and then charges the fans more money, gets MSG taken off Time Warner
    because they won't pay same money they charge other carriers, etc.

    I'm actually getting tired of writing the same thing over and over.
    I love the Knicks, but I hate the organization.

    I'm getting very disgusted too....I used to be pumped for Lee and Nate taking on contenders, now I worry about the Knicks taking on the Wizards.

    Our big defensive star , Chandler, was missing in action aganst the Thunder...the lane was wide open and unchallenged. NO DEFENSE IS CONTAGIOUS...caught from STAT.

    I'm really curious to see how this team looks with BD healthy after a few weeks, just him playing solves a lot of problems. It moves Shump over to the 2 which I think he's better suited for in the NBA, Fields to the bench where he belongs, offensively Chandler will get more points, and most of all i think Amare will flourish with a playmaking PG he's proven he's not the same player without a good playmaker setting him up. I think Melo is gonna have to make the biggest adjustment of not having the ball in his hands as much.

    As of right now the Knicks biggest problems with this coach and system is the lack of a competent playmaker who can control the tempo and not enough defensive effort. STAT has got to step up on D the players need to hold an intervention for him or something cause Chandler can't do it alone.

    Default D'Antoni is THE PROBLEM

    D'antoni system work great in phoneix but it doesn't work well with our current roster, D'antoni should change his style to maxmize the talent on our team.
    D'ANTONI HAS TO GO....please play BALKMAN...
