This game shows that Tyson Chandler is without a doubt the MVP of this team.
you fuxers, asking our players to be defensive juggernauts, get over it there strengths are not being defensive players. Melo never was good defensively, amare was never good defensively. Stop expecting them to start playing good defensively now it's not going to happen.
The only thing you should be pissed about is the lack of effort.
But i will say that players like mello and stat as marquis players are supposed to have more experience and lead the team and stand up in tough situations. So far they are not doing this, especially Mello. And if i was being paid 11m a season, i would be expected to have to deliver... You can hardly expect Lin who has played less than 50 games to know how to do this yet. He needs games under his belt and time to learn the game properly...
We are looking like the Bobcats right now.
Man the competitive nature of this game is unreal. I just want to see the second unit play the 4th quarter.
There is a world of difference between Dantoni and Popavich. Papavich told one of his rookies to get into the game and within 10 seconds of checking in he fouled someone and Pop took him out. The kid was literally on the floor for 10 seconds. Dantoni will never hold his players accountable, espicially those of All star calliber. What is even more fustrating is the kind of stars we have. Melo and Stat are not known as hard workers, so when teamates see that the top dogs are not putting in work, what incentive or motavation is that for them? The answer is none...
A true star is Derrick Rose. He is the first and last to leave the gym. He holds himself accountable and always says the right things to the media. His teamates see how hard he works and continues to work to make them work that much harder.
