It's gonna be very interesting seeing STAT in the post it's probably gonna be rocky, and it's good some coach is finally demanding that he operates down their even if it is like 9 years into his career.
Maybe Amare will finally learn how to play defense...I dont think id be looking to go to him that much though, we'll see what he does against the Pacers
Sorry to hear that.
While I'm cool with keeping Amar'e around, Melo is dead for me.
His reaction to D'Antoni's demission was the reaction of a selish and arrogant ******* imo.
It's obvious to me that he pulled the strings in the background that led to D'Antoni's exit, disrespecting his coach and co captain Amar'e (who's a huge D'Antoni supporter and friend of him) in the process.
I also remember the trash he talked about George Carl and Denver after the trade.
Melo is a snitch and a cancer to any team he's on.
I wish we had never traded for him, but Deron Williams or signed Amar'e AND Joe Johnson in 2010 to form a very nice 1-2 punch.
Melo is basically Kobe without the skills, talent, work ethic and success that Kobe has.
Carmelo said all the right things but before the game while every Knick looked a bit upset he looked like a five years old kiddo right before the Christmas, smiling and joking around.
Media got rid of D-Antoni. Stephen A said a few days earlier that If Dolan wanted Phil he could have him and that he must go.
If u dont know u need to ask somebody before spitting Shutbull....
Dantoni 1-9 start, Dantoni personal DNP, Dantoni tanking two seasons,
Dantoni 6 game losing streak at the end of January force the Melo trade.
Dantoni was 99% FIRED the week Lin-Sanity had a tripple-double in the
D.League. There are a HELLUVA lot of ex-Phoenix players and ex-Knicks
players celebrating bigtime on Dantoni Firing (resigning) from the Knicks.
Dantoni coaching did not keep him a Knicks headcoach for 4 seasons....
it was the top NBA analyst, commentators, annoucers, and writers reminding
folks constanly for 3 and a half years of "Dantoni taking on Isiah Thomas
Isiah being the most hated player/coach/GM in the history of the NBA.
The Knicks got rid of Dantoni for the same reason Denver & Phoenix got rid of Dantoni....
Melo had nothing to do with the Knicks getting rid of Dantoni....
the damn media bringing-up Melo name consistently with Dwight Howard everyday,
weeks before the trading deadline at every Knicks loss....brang Dolan into the picture....
Dolan raise the prices of tickets to a sold-out MSG with the addition of Melo.
Do the DAMN MATH....Dantoni shouldve been FIRED 3 years ago.
Mike Woodson First!
Headcoach Mike Woodson will spend more time in the next couple of weeks working with
our bench-players, getting 3 or 4 bench-players to gell in a lineup using a real system
that involves cutters, slashers, jump-shooters, with alot of movement without the
ball to set double screens. This all involve timing.
Our two assistant coaches (call them what u like) but 9 out of 10 both will be working
on the same system (which involves defense), and the same plays with our Starters,
plus let the starters add their own plays according to oponents weak areas.
Carmelo's statements on his teammate Jeremy Lin this morning.
Woodson's new offense should give Carmelo Anthony more opportunity to operate in the post, meaning fewer shots for Lin. But Anthony thinks it's premature to predict the end of Linsanity.
"Lin is Lin. I don't think Lin is paying attention to any of that stuff that is going on right now. Lin is about winning. Lin is about this team. Lin is about doing things to help this team win," Anthony said. "As far as the Linsanity thing goes, it's still there. That's not going nowhere."
