    When was the last time Mark Jackson could put up 38 on the lakers or even 20?!

    Dont get me wrong though, MJ was an excellent passer even though his footspeed rivals that of a turtle.
    When was the last time Mark Jackson turned the ball over every time he passed?

    Dante is nowhere near being a real NBA coach... but give him props for benching our "stars", now he knows who gives a **** about this team and who wants to play 100% and fight even if we're losing badly. I'd love to see Lamelo and Amarknee starting on the bench against Chicago.

    Good thing he benched Stoudemire and Melo in crunchtime.

    This team looks done.

    Time to fire D'Antoni and make some trades in the offseason.

    At best we're in for another first round sweep this year.

    At worst we'll finish 9th and won't even make the playoffs at all.

    Frustrating. At least Mike kept Melo and Stat on the bench at the end of the game.
    Quite interesting that Clyde criticised MDA on-air. Maybe Dolan gave them the green light. But who could replace Dantoni?

    Lin has a much higher ceiling than any PG we've had since Walt. Thats the only point im trying to make.

    We're a city that churns out top class PG's by the boatload at the junior levels but they never seem to come around and play for us.

    We don't need a scoring PG.. We need a passing PG that doesn't turn the ball over..

    Glad D'antoni had the balls to bench Carmelo and Stat.

    If they won't play up to their salary, pay attention, and D it up with intensity and energy then those that want to try harder need to be on the floor.

    Seeing way too much forced passing by Lin and the team in general seemed completely not there mentally.

    Guys need to want the ball - want to shoot, as much as want to play D.

    What Lin is really lacking is experience, and this is something you just need time. I think there is still time for this season by hanging on to the last spot.

    Time to focus on prepping Davis for starting PG. Linsanity was always going to end at some point. The fact it ever existed was pure commercialism anyway. Lin should start on the bench. He can develop into something really good, but, for now, proper efforts need to be made to get Davis into his Cleveland form. He should start.

    OK...stop posting, they judge PG's, by something called turnover to assist ratio, i like LIN, but he's a turnover machine.

    It's too many different player combinations for the guys playing to keep their head straight on what they should do.

    Between the many-mixer of lineup and not applying a stronger defense in the 2nd half....I have to agree with u on the many combination of players are not letting players GELL as a backcourt or frontcourt unit...

    Mark Jackson averaged 3 To's a game. He turned it over quite a few times but obviously thats because he is the primary ball handler. Just like Lin is.

    Lin definately needs to improve on this aspect of his game but there is no reason why he can't develop into a better player over the next few years. This is clearly his "rookie" year and he is learning how to play in a disjointed/dysfunctional offense right now. Its a steep learning curve if you ask me.

    Melo and Amar'e looked pissed that they were sitting on the bench at the end of the game.. and I absolutely LOVED IT

    PS - When is D'Antoni becoming C'Antoni? I give it 2 or 3 games.
