    Default So what is it now? TO MANY POINT GUARDS???

    Man. These last few games really put MDA's true coaching ability in a light that all can see. This cat just aint getting it done.MDA

    Boston was an end of the game debacle. MDA

    Dallas he takes the players out that gave him his only lead late in the game.
    MDA

    Tonight the team doesnt show up at all. MDA

    Can someone explain to me how Jorts can get 5 offensive rebounds in limited minutes yet the coach wants him playing above the 3 point line? MDA

    My expectations for this team is at an all time low. I wont get excited about the Knicks (NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS) until this coach is shown the door.

    We're NOT winning a chip with him no matter how much talent is accumulated.

    I am not a happy camper either. Clearly everything is not his fault, but something doesn't seem like this group of players could be this bad with a good coach. I don't know. I'm not gonna point fingers. This has gotten ugly quick.

    I'm beyond not being happy. I'm numb. Almost Isiah Thomas numb. And to think I said we'd only lose 5 games in the 2nd half. Cheesh what was I smoking...

    Couldn't agree more with the OP. Painful watching. Sometimes i wonder if some guys are quitting on Dantoni, but then i realize they'd be quitting on the team too. Just sad to see us look lost on the court. Sometimes i wonder if Melo and Stat sat, if we'd win 7 in the row again...lol, i know i'm crazy

    Out of nowhere the game tonight I felt like I did pre-Linsanity. That's not a good feeling, not a good feeling at all. Except this time we're deep and do have a bright future, but it's SUCH a letdown the way they played. I could take a loss, but not like this.

    No its not all his fault but he does deserve half the blame.This team was playing GREAT when melo was out.Then when he comes back.. the team plays like dogs. Now that goes to show you that something is going on with these players and they deserve alot of the blame also.A team cannot play that great WITHOUT their so called superstar but when he comes back they stink. This problem goes futher than any coach!!

    Not that I'm an NBA coach, but I see so many things that could be done better. I mean basic stuff.

    MDA is not a horrible coach. If he coaches his system and gets players that fit his system it's great. If he doesn't then his deficiencies shine.

    This roster does not and never will fit his system. We need a new coach. Are the players tanking right now to get coach shown the door? Was that their plan pre-Lin and Lin came along and screwed it all up?

    That's a bit too conspiracy for me but either way I am fed up with this no offense no defense ball.

    D'antoni isn't a bad coach?

    The feeling hit me when I saw what a real coach does as opposed to MDA. S A shoots their fair share of threes, but they were absolutely pounding the paint. They were posting up Tiago Splitter? Who sucks and looks like he's a worst player than Jerome Jordan. We're content with shooting jump shots...

    I dont see how adding a better player than what was playing back then has this much of an effect. There is absolutely nothing Bill Walker can do better than Melo on a basketball court. Winning and playing ball should have gotten easier...

    I fear MDA is encouraging Lin to shoot long range.

    I'm not the first guy to want to see somebody fired, but the thought of Jerry Sloan, Phil Jackson, etc. coaching this team sounds enticing like a max contract player added to this squad without losing anybody.

    He may not be bad, but he definitely isnt good. I'm just tired of the underachieving by this team under this coach...

    Well back then Lin was taking over games. Now that teams have adjusted and cut off his dashes into the paint its harder for us to score.

    Which brings up another point entirely. Why dont we do the same things to opposing PGs on defense? Rondo and Parker absolutely killed us. It's things like this that MDA doesnt do that has me concerned. If it works against you, it could also work for you...
