    Default what do you think is biggest Problem with knicks

    at this point I'd like to say it's either the Coach or lack of PG...but it's probably Jim Dolan. He's responsible for pushing the melo trade through, despite donny walsh...we probably would have gotten him anyway(i love melo) or landed PG D.Williams who would have been a better fit for D'Antoni and Stat.

    He also is responsible for letting this team start the year without a legitimate PG. I like the chandler aquisition, but we miss Billups big time. Banking on us getting B. Davis in the first place and then his health. Dolan sucks.

    Not to mention, the lock out was bad enough, then he negotiates unfairly with Time warner...greed and stupidity...I am a step away from being a Brooklyn nets fan as I suspect so many are when they have a better team then the Knicks next year.
    I would never have thought I'd say it, but if they somehow get Dwight howard and the knicks have the same crappy chemistry, coach and @55hole owner ... I'll be a Brooklyn fan next year. As a life long knick fan and NJ hater, It kills me to think about, but I can't take the results of DOLAN anymore.

    Even the dumbest human being to ever walk this earth would know what the biggest problem with the Knicks is.

    it starts with the coach-the lineups he uses on the floor, not playing players that can contribute more then other players, poor execution, no plays, waiting to call timeouts till were down double digits, and for the simple fact his only motivation he has for the players is "lets go lets go lets go"

    2nd problem we have no PG

    3rd problem OUR BENCH SUCKS

    Dumbtoni gets my vote for biggest problem though.

    when baron comes back and we dont win our first game with him back and if dantoni still has no game plan or any effective plays. i want him fired... not just fired i want him fired in the post conference after the game i want dolan to be there to tell him he's fired in front of reporters i want him fired on the spot Vince mcmahan WWE style. i have no sympathy for dantoni.

    i want him to repeatedly here that he is fired just so he can grasp it all in as well. EXAMPLE SHOWN IN VIDEO BELOW

    Point guard. Do I think MDA is some great coach? No, I don't. But lack of a true playmaker and a guy that can control the game, control tempo, feed guys where they need the ball, etc.. That's the biggest problem in my eyes...If we had even a halfway decent playmaker, we'd have a better record (how much better i couldn't tell ya, just better) and we wouldn't be all over D'Antoni as much as we are.

    PG. D'Antoni isn't a great coach but the PG is the bigger issue here.

    he has a pg (LIN) that he chooses to not play unless its garbage mins not only does Lin not hesitate to get into the lane but he makes decent passes and plays at his own pace. He forces the action at times but that nothing a little more play time can help cure. dantoni just chooses not to use him why.. idk he rather let turnover douglas eat up mins i guarantee you if LIN shot as many 3's as douglas he'd get playtime under dantoni

    Dantoni had his big 3 already and failed in phoenix

    Nash, joe johnson, Stat. how do you not win a championship with a lineup of nash,richardarson,joe johnson,marion and stoudemire with a decent bench

    if he cant make that work he aint making the knicks work no matter who the PG is. Mind you the Big 3 miami heat/ westbrook, durant,perkins/ cp3,griffin/jordan/ rose,boozer,noah and all these other tandems in the NBA did not even exist at this time

    It's hard not to say coaching is a problem after watching a few games. I watched these guys chuck up 20 three pointers only to lead the Heat by 4 points. I immediately said to my wife 'these guys should be leading by 10 with all of the 3's they've made'. As Charles Barkley says 'Live by the 3, die by the 3'. And that's exactly what they did.

    Although Melo was out a few games, the offense never went directly through Amare. How is this not a coaching issue?

    Second issue, most of you guy have already identified it, where's the point guard. Letting Billups go was a bad amateurish move. I was not in favor of gutting the team for Melo. We can clearly see who got the better end of that deal. Melo is a great scorer but he chucks up too many shots and doesn't make anyone better.

    It's not a total bust. We need a solid PG. I'd much rather have Davis in a supporting role as a backup PG. Bring back Felton or Billups. We've got a good supporting cast now. PG is the only missing piece. Coaching has to be addressed. Not saying get rid of D'Antoni, but he's got to emphasize inside scoring. Try running the offense through Amare for a change.
