    Both them should be playing at the same time when Carmelo's not in the game, thats when u need the most defense to compensate of the loss of offense. Balkman is the better of the 2, hes more likely to make an impact on offense...not just defense. Not that either of them will ever average double figures in points, but I would almost go as far as to say they do great things on defense. Just shy of great...very good. I liked seeing Jeffries at PF too next to Chandler. Half of the Jeffries haters probably never knew or dont know how to play defense, hence the reason why they dont understand his value. Thats not aimed at you either, its aimed at whoever thinks it applies to them. Just be honest with yourselves, if your getting scored on non stop by your opponents (pause) and u hate Jeffries step forward

    My Fam that works in MSG office is wondering why I keep denying the free
    tickets she keep offering me. Especially todays 1:00-clock game.
    If I wouldve went....after the game I wouldve been angry with myself for not
    selling those tickets.....I cant stand to watch what Damnphony is doing to this team

    Fields is lost...AMARE is lost...D'Antoni should be fired right now.

    I agree. I'm watching the Bos vs. OKC game and it cut over to OKC's coach (Scott Brooks) yelling (motivating) his players and calling plays. When's the last time any of us have actually seen D'Antoni coach our guys? I haven't seen it, NOT ONCE THIS SEASON! He's either sitting on the bench or walking around while our guys get water or advice from Chandler/Melo. MDA needs to be fired... NOW!

    It became personal with Dantoni when Balkman screamed on Gallo in Gallo's
    only apearance in the summer league game....Balkman was traded a week or
    two after the summer league games were over for two players the Knicks
    buyed out weeks later. A month after the Balkman trade the Knick traded
    for Patrick Ewing Jr. to replace Balkman's hustle.

    Balkman & Fields are the players we should have teaching Jorts & Jordan the ropes on boxing-out, rebounding, and scoring in the paint -vs- Tyson, Stat, and Melo in our Knicks practices.

    The non-use of Balkman & Jordan takes alot away from this Knicks team.
    The two combination of "Jordan/Stat/Balkman" then "Tyson/Jorts/Melo" gives
    us depth in the frontcourt.

    The game was actually going pretty well until the Magic went Zone in the 4th quarter.

    When teams go zone there's no real way to beat them without making shots and my goodness these Knicks cannot make a shot for their damn lives.

    Landry Fields hit 39% of his 3's last year - he's hitting a mere 21% this year.

    Toney Douglas, who hit 37% last year and 39% the year before that, is hitting a mere 23% this year.

    Bill Walker, who hit 43% two years ago, and 38.6% last year, is only hitting 30.6% this year.

    Until these guys figure it out, the Knicks will not win. Every team in the NBA knows that all they need to do is play a zone defense against us and make us shoot. D'Antoni teams have known to be good shooting teams and yet they're bricking freaking EVERYTHING out there. Jorts and Bibby are the only ones who have made 3's for us this year and until other players start HITTING some of the 3's they're taking, we're going to be crap.

    I agree with Kiyaman on the poor usage of Balkman and Jordan as well. It didn't factor as much into this game, but I still think that not using these guys is stupid.

    Here's another thing I don't understand. The Magic went to a zone defense. The only way to beat a zone is by shooting the ball well because you can't drive or you'll probably get called for a charge. The Suns did the same thing against the Spurs a couple of years ago - Gentry used the zone to do really well against the Spurs and IIRC that's how they finally got past the Spurs in the playoffs (only to run up against Kobe who was out for blood).

    Why, then, did a certain man named STEVE NOVAK who has been shooting the ball AMAZINGLY with the Knicks, not even get a single OUNCE of playing time? That **** is whack...instead we gave the ball to Carmelo who chucked his way to a loss...SMH this is common sense. I mean if you think about it Novak is our version of Ryan Anderson - a one-dimensional guy who can't do anything other than shoot the ball. Why, then, did we not put him in? Especially since everyone else on our team was ****ting bricks out there? God damn this coach has no common sense whatsoever

    The Simple answer is Dantonio....He makes up his mind before the game and no matter what the situation he will not change it,,,,,,,Its like putting square blocks into a round hole...

    Not sure how he is a human being but as a coach he is very arrogant.

    3's. 3's and more 3's.....In his world if we make 5 for 12 its the same as 5 for 20...we still get 15 points
