    I mean, get rid off MDA will not solve the problems Knicks are facing. It only serves as a temporary relief.

    Melo clearly not the issue.
    7-1 without best player

    2-8 with best player

    Obviously a coaching issue.

    I was agreeing with you.

    Losing MDA is a possible cog in the wheel that fixes this team, but it's not the answer in and of itself.

    Right. It's not a pure talent thing. Melo obviously can be a winner and be a huge asset for a team.

    The problem was Melo came back and he chose himself (and how he wants to play) vs a true commitment to the team and coach. And the very ways that led to that 7-1 run, despite not having the pure talent level that Melo obviously brings.

    Imagine if Melo wasn't such a punk? Coulda been big things.

    Any system or team will look **** when there is legit mutiny from within.

    STAT said yesterday I think that each game D'antoni gave a offensive and defensive gameplan for that game; and that every player must buy into it as 1, or you will see the **** and chaos that we had been seeing.

    Wonder if he was alluding to anyone?

    This won't bode well for Lin, who already had D'antoni's back and was getting **** from Melo because Lin was sticking to the team's gameplan and not going along with Melo improving and deviating on his own.

    Pre-emptive media work to protect himself from the back-lash?

    My thoughts about the game are now anythings possible. Mike Woodson could just go with Melo Amare Baron Davis Chandler JR Smith?

    Or maybe Melo just doesn't get along with teammates, doesn't run the plays called (already shown he doesn't), and is a whiny crybaby (see: last year forcing his way out of Denver).

    Any coincidence Karl wasted no time bashing Melo's effort on the way out?

    If we are 7-1 without the best player and 2-8 with him, that guy can hit the road. Ws are what matter.

    Totally agree! Like I said in my earlier post, no way in hell does Jackson or Sloan come here with an owner like Dolan!

    I think this is more right than people know. Mike Woodson is an Isiah guy (Indiana days). The Melo deal had Isiah written all over it.

    Someone posted it on RealGM as his reaction to Donetoni leaving, LMAO:



    @Marc_Berman: Linsanity is really over under Woodson.

    Good point your right, If all the intangible's about him are right then him being our best player with that attitude would definitely mess our chemistry up.

    D'antoni seriously should have done this first

    tell A'mare & Carmelo to stay home

    have Lin and the rest of of the team run his system the way it's supposed to be run, then resign after the Portland game

    if Knicks win, he leaves showing he's not the sole reason for the Knicks problems

    if Knicks lose, /shrug not like they've been winning

    at least try going out with guns ablazing instead of on a whimper

    This is funny; Damnphony has a losing record as the Knicks coach in year 4 of his tenure and people are still defending him. First it was "get him some players". Now its "the players fault." You are called HEADCOACH for a reason people. Fish stinks from the head and the rest of the cliches he had to go!!!
