    I don't like to say I told you so but, I think it's clear from how we are playing now that I was right about this.

    People we're flaming Fields and Shumpert like crazy when I wrote this. Look at them now.

    Some people have got to stop being so reactionary and jumping down our players throats at the first sign of weakness. Our roster is strong and our players are strong and they will bounce back.

    Next on the list is Amare and Melo. Amare started to show signs of coming back to at least being a good contributor offensively. I'm happy with that, as these guys grow together as a TEAM which they haven't been doing until 1 week ago, they will only get stronger.

    If I was on Twitter, I'd apologize to Landry!

    I was a douchebag when criticizing him earlier this season.

    Not neccessarily for the criticism itself, but the way I criticised him, like he was some idiot.

    Like I said, if I was on Twitter or in case I should ever meet him in person I'd definitely apologize to him!

    However these fans seem to believe Melo should play like Lebron, Shump should play like CP3, STAT should have Hakeem like post ability, TD is a PG not a combo guard, Fields should be a dead-eye shooter... The list goes on...

    NO! Our players are who they are and for better or worse that's who we have on our roster. Our players are not going to change, only the way we play them. The sum of our parts could be so much better, if utilized correctly.

    Red....was right, no matter how much make-up or paint u put on it....
    u wrote to damn much....it doesnt really matter what round a player come
    into the draft....a player is suppose to define his talent to the "role" his
    headcoach give to him.
    Our headcoach Dantoni "dont" give out any roles to rookies or veteran players....
    any success Dantoni had/have comes from having "complimentary-players" in
    a lineup. The Knicks 7 game win streak came from complimentary-defensive-
    team-effort from certain (hungry 2012 FA) players....taken advantage of an
    oportunity they didnt have in the previous 25 ISO games (think Woodson).




    ****Buzzer sound!
    Times up Smokes.

    You wrote all of this but forgot...
    You ALREADY used your "player" excuse. That's a technical foul... one shot and the ball.
    Hahahahahahahah....

    Now that we've seen this ineptitude for three years, with scores of different players...
    We KNOW it's the coach.
    Sorry. Better luck next time. Good try though.

    Our offence also seems to have picked up since the arrival of a PG. We are probably shooting around the same 3pt%, however we are now able to add a variety of offensive moves to our repertoire which includes a dangerous presence in the paint. Any coach would suffer stagnation and offensive limitation if he had absolutely no playmakers on the team. I dare say when Davis is fit, we will definitely be a top 3 team in our conference. Woodson has definitely worked wonders on the defence.
