Mike Antoni and Carmelo Anthony both need to go.
Lebron is clearly the better player never questioned this. Who ever thinks Melo is the same type of player as Lebron is on . If we don't have / keep Melo than who. I am ready to ride the duration of his contract with the hope that he will pan out by at least getting us to a finals.
I have been patient this long and would hate to see them blow up the team just cause we have fans / media who think they are qualified GM's.
I don't know about the rest of you guys but I like the team we have. I wouldn't even think of blowing it up AT LEAST until I've had another coach come in and see what he can do. This could very well be a systemic flaw, but we won't know that until we allow another basketball mind to coach the team.
You don't just give up on all this talent without seeing if someone else can make it work. You don't move STAT or Melo just because Antoni can't figure it out. Who the f*** is he????
Real Talk....since the start of the 2011-12 season Knicks superstars "Stat & Melo"
has been doing their best performance to get headcoach Mike Dantoni FIRED.
Nothing has changed from Stat & Melo performance from early in the season
when all the commentators been putting the Knicks losses BLAME on the need
of a PG. The Knicks has added two decent PG in their rotation, and forced
Mike Dantoni to add two more players to the 8 man rotation he was using in this
hectic tight 66 game schedule, but still the Knicks two superstars Stat & Melo
are sticking to their original-plan to get rid of a Flawed headcoach Dantoni.
Mike Dantoni has to many Flaws in his coaching to get any where near to the
level of coach Spoe & coach Thibs in a series.
Dantoni poor halfcourt-setting on offense annnd defense does not belong in the
eastern conference, plus Dantoni poor strategy of using bigmen really need
coach Patrick Ewing help in making Tyson & Stat a dominating bigman tandem,
and Dantoni's poor strategy to design open jump-shot for Carmelo over smaller
defenders during the game or in a time-out should not only jeopardize Dantoni job
but interim Grunwald job too....for not doing anything about this consistent poor coaching
for 40 games.
The Knicks have talent on top of talent that refuse to coach themselves like
Nash, Marion, and Stat did in Phoenix each game. Stat & Melo are doing what
they suppose to do.
Dantoni is poor in substituting players because in Phoenix he had 5 players that
average over 32+ minutes per game.
With the proven talent we have now compare with the track record and carrear stats of the coach...you'll be a fool to get rid of anymore players before we get rid of the coach.
How is it that nobody knew of this before the trade? Knick fans are getting the player they asked for. This is who Melo is. Knick fans just saw the ESPN highlights and the star name but didn't know who they were gutting their team for.
I think Melo is trying to work w/the system, but I don't think he works well with the p'n'r offense. I actually feel sorry for him a little bit (I know he gets the big bucks and all).
Such a dumb thread this is.
I usually keep away out of saying bad things, but sometimes I see the peak and I cannot help myself.
I can understand another fire MDA threasd but to include Melo is just idiotic. They always say a player is a product of his system, well in this system he cant play well plain and simple. He started off hot today and was on his way to 40 but got benched and lost his confidence again, he is being asked to be Atlas for New York City.
