Player-Leadership plays 90% (Jefferies & Tyson already prove this)

Stat & Melo leadership will show up the day Mike Dantoni is FIRED.
All of the Knicks players know Tyson, Stat, and Melo are tied to the Knicks for the
next 4 seasons, so complimenting Stat & Melo leadership will get the two supstars
to get Dolan to sweeten up their contracts....Stat & Melo being force to run "ISO"
plays from the start of the season showed Dantoni did not do his homework over
the offseason-lockout by creating a plan or scheme for the two superstars in a
halfcourt offense/defense.
Its ashame to watch the Knicks on offense having two super high scorers u
have to double, or watch on defense having a 7.0 paint stopper Tyson Chandler.
