OK fellas I'm happy as a pig in crap that MDA is gone. I really dont want to rehash past issues, but seeing the Knicks absolutely dominate on the defensive end less than 24 hours after MDA stepped down and continue to play way above average defensive got me to thinking. How does this happen?
I remember debating with KBlack and others last year that we could take the same exact team and put a defensive minded coach in MDAs place and we'd play better defense. Not to toot my on horn, but I was right. He blamed it on the players. Which leads me to my poll question.
I truly think (I dont know for sure) that MDA told his team or certain players (his stars)to save themselves for the offensive end. STATS turnaround and effort really points to this fact.
