STAT was a fringe lotto player straight from HS, who, despite huge injuries, has been a perennial all-star and force.
And all-star CENTER.
Chandler is having close to, if not *a* career year.
Jorts was one of the most surprisingly effective draft picks of this year. What position does Jorts play?
PHO never had a complete, defensive front court...because they never had the players. It's quite simple. You wanna know why Phil Jackson won chips? Partly bc he's a great basketball mind and good coach, but also because he is great at coaching great players...
You think Kobe Bryant, Prime Shaq, Prime Gasol...Jordan, lol....had anything to do with his success?
Fool ass **** everywhere. Wanna know why HOF coach Larry Brown looked like **** with us? Because our players were ****. And Brown basically did all he could to get fired and leave.
Props to MDA for being man enough to come and stick around, and good enough as a coach to give us the season we did last year, and the season we will have this year.
Just like last year, we never had a complete defensive front court. And now we do.
Whatta surprise. How do you think the Lakers front-court would look if you removed Bynum and replaced them with pretty much any C not named Chandler that MDA has had?
His pedigree is better than any coach in the league at coaching up players, milking talent, and making the most out of the least. In part, this is due to his cutting-edge mindset and knowledge of basketball and cutting edge analysis, and the ultra-refined, evolutionary system he seeks to always implement.
I know these things deeply rattle the cage of MDA haters; and that consciously you don't even allow yourself to acknowledge it. Which is why for your *survival* you are required to turn the epic, miracle in the making success of Lin into negatives *against* MDA.
WOW! What a game folks!
That was probably the most enjoyable Knicks game in a decade!
I absolutely loved the heart and soul these guys put in last night.
It's not about talent, it's all about passion, energy and sacrifices.....
Jeremy Lin has already done more in 2 games effort wise than Melo and Stoudemire combined in one year.
Everybody played with great energy last night and everybody played hard, I love it!
Now let's get Stoudemire and Melo outta here ASAP and we got a legit chance of becoming a great TEAM again.
Somebody like Kevin Love would be ideal
Melo, Stoudemire OUT!!!!!!
