Sorry fellas, Phil Jackson couldn't fix this. Mike Woodson, who will be our coach for the rest of the year certainly can't fix this.
I would rather get the pieces that Amare, Chandler and D'Antoni can work with and make this team better and deeper than watch Woodson try and coach this team or pray for Phil Jackson to come out of retirement and pray he even wants to coach this mess.
I want the Knicks to win, that's all. I have no allegiance to players or the coach, only the Knicks.
According to Alan Hahn, Amar'e Stoudemire put on 20 lbs of muscle over the summer. I guess that explains why he sucks this year. I don't get how a guy who averaged over 25 points per game last year would feel the need to change his weight. SMH.
And wow is Melo selfish. I think pass is not in his vocabulary.
That being said, Antoni sucks.
Honestly I just think we need better guards, a better coach and a better owner oh and fans who dont boo when get down I mean talk **** but you're there to encourage not discourage
I guess we'll have to agree to disagree....I just don't think Jerome Jordan can play in the NBA. The NBA isn't like MLB where dudes can be in the minors until age 26, come in and have an impact or even be a star. And its not like those NFL runningbacks who sit on the practice squad (like Arian Foster or Ryan Grant or that guy the Giants had, Ward) and behind a good O-line drop 1000 yards. In the NBA, you are what you are, in my opinion.
Still waiting for "Fire Dantoni" chants to rain down in the Garden.. Tomorrow may be the night.
I think fans have been grasping at straws for so long with this team, they thought they were going to will 20 good minutes out of Jerome Jordan lollll
Oh ease up, you are way misunderstanding if you think I am saying that. I've followed this team forever and always been reasonable, I never say 20 good minutes, but JJ should have gotten 6-10 minutes off bench in my opinion. If you hate you can hate, but I would also think many of you underrate the importance of role players too
I wouldn't be surprised if we see a major roster change soon.
ie, Mike Bibby starting at point, alongside Shump at SG, and both getting the lion's share of minutes for the backcourt.
We are seeing two "superstars" who are either volume scorers and/or need the offense to flow through their game.
They are simply a terrible, terrible pair. Unless you have a free flow, up tempo offense running the team, and there is a starting PG on the team (not exactly crazy needs).
The concerns most had about them playing together, was assuaged and countered by us running just the type of offense, highlighted by well-coached PG play, that we are the current antithesis of.
People slagged a lot on Bosh -- ppl still do -- but you can see how he was able to mold his game around the team in MIA. Ya, Amare is "better"..I gues, if you want to quantify it like who is more talented and 1 on 1 superior.
You'll notice in MIA, as well, that if Wade has a night that isn't STATistically glorious...and Lebron (or Bosh) are doing the heavy lifting....Wade still manages to be efficient, play D, and get his key assists/rebounds/steals etc. in.
Likewise for Bosh and Bron. It's rare one of them, or two of them, truly **** the bed -- even if they are taking a backseat in scoring and such -- and just self-destruct an entire performance (and game) away.
