Knicks fans in a nutshell. Always looking for someone to blame. Can't we just give Heat som cred and admit they were the better team?
I agree, tonight he was great on D. I know he can play on ball defense, if you watch him in cuse that one year he has all the fundementals. But even you have to agree, for him to be labeled a "great" superstar" player he has to get it done on both sides of the court.
That block he had was sick, and he was in Lebrons chest all night.
What part was beyond coaching?
The only time Lin-Sanity shouldve been on the court within the last 4 minutes of a quarter was in the final quarter.
Lin did not deserve to be thrown out there to the wolves to be in embarrassed.....Lin deserved better treatment than that...
Whether it's Lin, Melo, STAT, whoever. We should not be playing one-on-one for an entire half.
When the D is full on lockdown last 3 minutes of a playoff game, Melo can ISO to his hearts content. Other than that he should play within the offense. Again, Melo, Lin, STAT I don't care who it is.
The point I'm trying to make is all these Melo lovers saying it's stupid that he's trying to make the right play instead of just holding the ball and shooting it, is just plain wrong.
Don't worry bro we just need time to get to know each other on the court. All championship teams need atleast a year of meshing before winning a ring (besides the 2008 celtics) But look at the Lakers, Spurs, and Mavs. Even look at teams up and coming: Bulls, and Thunder, time and experience is helping them alot.
They are a great defensive team, but what Dallas realised during the finals is that if you block their access to the rim, they instantly become average on offence. Unless people really think James and Wade can get points any other way.
These hyped up players do not have the brains to win trophies. They take advantage of open court play due to sketchy defence. They were denied this in the finals and demonstrated just how one dimensional they really are.
Had this Knicks team been assembled at the same time as the Heat were, we would be on top of them.
Again just in case you missed it. The Knicks have a better roster than the heat.
