    Thank you for making this thread. Anyone who thinks MDA hasn't been doing a good job is a blind MDA hater. You got to give credit when credit is due.

    I'm feeling you, but not just yet. Shump on Dirk was an "EPIC" fail...

    I have to agree. He still playing with a shaky shifting roster and getting it done. My biggest praise is to the plays we're doing out of timeouts. I see screens, picks and movement on the floor.

    I would rather have Shump on Dirk than Amare on Dirk.

    Oh no, please no D'ANtoni thread...this won't end well

    On a serious note: No need to get too high or too low on D'Antoni.
    I always thought the amount of stick he got was pretty unfair, ridiculously unfair at times.

    He didn't win coach of the year for nothing, record several 60+ win seasons, coach the national team alongside Pop and coach K and help guys like David Lee, Wilson Chandler, Steve Nash or Joe Johnson to stardom if he was a bad coach.

    He might not be the best coach in basketball and his emphasis is clearly not on defense from a practice/philosophy standpoint, but with the right players (mainly a great point guard and good shooters) his system is very successful and he knows how to win that way.

    I think this might be the first time where he really got his kind of players since taking over the Knicks in 08.

    Mike Woodson obviously did a great job too, credit to him.

    Felton and GAllo were good players last season and I have great respect for them (and we looked pretty dang good at times last year), but Lin, J.R. Smith and Novak are the perfect players for D'Antoni. Add Baron Davis to the mix and Jeffries and Chandler's great defense and hustle and this is a very dangerous team.

    I would like Diaw.

    I just reaaaaallllyyyy hope he will play a 10-11 man rotation when Davis Jorts and Melo are in the team. It's kind of disconcerting the thought that either Fields, Shumpert or Novak could find themselves buried on the bench.

    I do have to give him props for sitting Amare alot in that second half when he was clearly struggling to defend that high pick n roll with Dirk....

    How can I? We just reached .500, shouldn't the bar be set just a bit higher?

    Besides, you said yourself that Lin was the difference- what happened before that?

    Where was this coaching before? I haven't had problems with him since Lin went on a tear, but Lin deserves most of the credit. Lin is also the second best PG in the league, and the best scorer of PGs.

    In the past 10 games he's been the best player in the league no question.
