    Default Knicks Leaders taking shots at each other.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    Amare

    "Joking around has to stop at some point," the Knicks power forward said. "Especially at a time when we're the eighth seed and not playing well. The time is now. There's no time for fun and games."

    Melo

    "I don't know," Anthony said, joking around. "I saw one of the college teams was having a drill where they was throwing the ball out of bounds, jumping off the court and diving on the floor. So maybe we should start doing that."

    Melo

    "When we're losing games by minor things -- which is major things, offensive rebounds, second-chance shots -- that gives the other team momentum and the chance to run another play or score a basket," Anthony said, catching himself. "Maybe I should grab another rebound. Or dive on the floor. Something."


    It wont be long before players start choking each other out in practice.

    So what you are saying is that the two team p|_|ssies are being just that? Of course they are, no one is praising them for their work ethic, if they don't have wins handed to them, then clearly it's not their fault.

    **** those two, seriously. People pay hard earned money to see the knicks play, especially with the outrageous prices that the Garden is squeezing out of them. For what? To see these "centerpieces" put in what they call effort?

    I rather take Melo diving on the ****ing floor than walking down the court ON A FASTBREAK. He is a mother****er.

    This was a real slap in the face for fans, at least act like you give a ****, AT LEAST. Stop your ****ing bitching, and maybe give a little jog to get to your spot on offense. There's plenty of guys on the bench that would love a shot at putting up a good effort. Do me a favor D'Antoni, peel this mother****ers muffin cap back and bench him.

    Exactly. This team has no leader.

    It's not about talent. It's about accountability.

    Another clear sign that the coach has lost the little control he had to begin with. I think he will be cut real soon because the circus was not suppose to be in town no time soon. Those are not elephants stinking up the Garden....

    STAT had 3 rebounds in the last game! Mind you this was a game where we got mauled on the boards. This has been the 3rd time (as far as I know) where he says guys need to follow the gameplan or work harder or whatever.

    After the performance he turned in, he should have been speaking solely about improving on the rebounds and feeling a sense of shame that he only gave his team 3 rebounds.

    What I wanted to hear from STAT was something like: I take a lot of responsibility for this game. I really need to rebound better out there and take some pressure off of Tyson to do it all.

    You don't play like **** and then drag your teammates with you. That digusts me. Be a leader and admit that YOU need to put more effort on the boards!

    Oh please.

    All you're gonna get from STAT is the media 101 "we need to come together, myself and the entire team...you know....and focus on that one goal" or some ****.

    Then next game he goes out there and has 9 points and 5 rebounds, while the masses prepare to open up the gates of hell and shove Melo in.

    Can't disagree with this.

    His rebounding and defense isn't just bad...it's reprehensible. This is why i was one of the few who *didnt* want us to sign him, and while I never thought Bosh was some reincarnation of Ewing, I wanted him over Amare.

    But he's still being truthful about Melo. Even if it makes him a hypocrite.

    One thing too nobody really talks about, but could be a factor: this is a golden age of the NBA, the talent level and pool is just insane.

    The bar has been raised.

    So we look at Amare and Melo...and we see really talented players..."stars"....and thus expect it to be some given that it makes us contenders, because for a long time (and until very recently) if you had a couple legit all stars and some other good players it almost automatically made you legit by sheer talent alone.

    Not sure this is the case anymore, in any way.

    It's like college degrees -- up until the past couple years, people went to college, got a 4yr degree, and it was supposed to be a given it'd equate to a job.

    Well, the relative worth of a degree (without it being a specific type of degree) has plummeted, and doesn't mean nearly so much in the real world anymore; i'd argue this as a comparison that simply having a "star" (without it being a specific type or quality of star) doesn't mean nearly as much as it used to.

    Ok i'll give you that, but who's honestly having a worse year between Melo and Amare?
