    People have to remember that Woodson has been here the whole year so its not like he has no idea what to do. He knows what failed and what might work but he will go back to his old ISO philosophy. This can work if you have spacing and guys hitting shots but you have to iso down low and not at the 3 point line.

    I hope woodson does well and i think he will give us more wins then mike d would bring...woodson can keep us in the playoffs but winning 1st round will be tough.

    Woodson know where the Isiah/Dantoni era failed....Woodson showed
    his wisdom in his first headcoach game by getting the bench-players involved
    as early as the first & second quarter (playintime to 10 players).
    Now Woodson have to start from the beginning with our bench-depth in creating
    a chemistry-bench-lineup that show they co-exist through the playingtime given
    on offense/defense....PG, SG, SF, PF, Center.

    We have a loaded roster with some unbelieveable talent that was never given
    the chance to GELL into several different types of units. This is why we always
    failed to "out-play" our oponents (second-half strategy) in the 3rd quarter for the
    past decade.

    The Lin-Sanity era produced a great backup for Stat/Melo in Jefferies/Novak, plus
    when u add Shump as a trio-unit....those 3 bench-players co-exist on defense to
    perform any design defense imaginable.
    So a blind Dantoni not seeing this trio and using this trio at the return of Stat/Melo
    deserve the booot he got out of New York....the media leak on Melo (and not Stat)
    a week before the trading deadline had to come from the Dantoni-brothers...

    I posted this thread for conversation after the WIN (today/tommorow)....
    with us heading into the land of "Larry Bird new Pacers" in a back to back.
    It took Larry Bird 4 hard seasons to fix up the terrible mess Donnie Walsh left behind.
    Ironic....Isiah's mess only took 2 to 3 seasons to clean-up, because Isiah being apart
    of the Knicks organization was 90% of the Knicks mess.

    The Indiana Pacers are playing like a 3rd/4th seeded-team in the East, let me get
    the Pacers lineup right this time they have bench-depth in a backcourt tandem of
    "Price & Hill" with two frontcourt bigmen Hansborough & Admunson, they co-exist as
    a bench line-up and with their starters who is not a joke lineup with a strong-frontcourt
    of "Hibbert, West, Granger" with a creative speedy floor leader in Collison.

    They just picked up barbosa for a 2nd rounder as well to give them even more depth and scoring... gotta say, pacers are hungry and scary.

    I'll give ya a pass this time Kiya, but i think that the pacers game discussion can go down in that game thread... i understand the want for a bridge between game days though.

    As far as how the knicks will react, i hope they are practicing, hanging out and trying to be a team. I hope woodson has them planing and playing, looking at tape and looking for the mis-matches. The pacers are not an easy team to beat.

    If we lose this one expect the media backlash against melo to whip up in a hurry. The team could splinter and it could get harsh. from what i watched in interviews from yesterday the team had it out in a team meting before the game and see, to be on the same page now. If there are several losses in a row, i expect that things will get bad quickly.

    If we win, expect the ho-hum "it's just the pacers, it's just two games" to come up a whole bunch. The media hate knicks winning for whatever reason. The team however should come together very nicely. with D'antoni' brothers gone and woodson chewing players out on defensive lapses i expect that the defense will get much better and that will lead to better offense. Our team should be better equipped to run the half-court sets and i expect our elite players to step up in a big way. Melo and STAT should see a big increase in shots and iso's.
