Dont forget Woody is trying to make it with an old, post-injury PG and without STAT .
Jordan & Kobe would have SUPER-STAR Headcoach Phil Jackson matching-up players with several offense/defense design plays in his triangle....Jordan & Kobe teams would have 40 rebounds to their oponents 20 rebounds, or 16 offensive rebounds to their oponents 4 offensive rebounds....Phil Jackson was a first-seeded team one season using Kwame Brown as center and Lamar Odom as PF.... Get it Right...
The Knicks didn't lack effort last night. They just weren't sharp and didn't make smart decisions at times. Also the Bulls absolutely manhandled us on the boards. That's to be expected when you play a small lineup vs the best offensive rebounding team in the league.
As for Novak, every star player or role player has a few teams they're gonna struggle against. Chicago's a great defensive team, they made a strong effort to smother Novak. And Novak did get some open looks the past few games but the Bulls defense got in his head to an extent, they got him out of his rhythm. I expect Novak to play better tonight
dude gtfoh w your bs comparison thats not even relevant to the point i was making. yes those teams were better equipped. all i was talking about was the competitive desire of melo n comparing it to that of kobe and jordan. the bulls last night were very beatable without rose. we didnt need phil jackson or anyone else, only what we had. i had it right. **** we beat the bulls w rose on sunday. try to make some sense when you post son.
Poor excuse....if u been watching the high minutes of playingtime Woody been given to Shump, JR, Melo, and Chandler since the injuries to Stat/Lin....taking away the coaches confidence in the bench-players....show there is no plays practice during practice for players to step-up to replace Stat at PF or Lin at PG...
Who are the bigmen rebounders on the team?
Point-leaders on the team?
Was Lin given any plays to run by the coach during Lin-Sanity? Hell no, Lin wasnt given any plays to run (same as D.league) throughout his time as our starting PG.
Woody has not given our PG any type of design plays to excute with their teammates. The Knicks has been playing off of players instint on offense, and Tyson Chandler dominating skills on defense.
ronieboy....u need to leave this forum with all your player-HATER-foolishness with comparison of Hall of Famers.
The Chicago Bulls only have 14 losses in this compressed 66 game season....the Bulls are 6 WINS away from a 50 WIN season....with or without D.Rose....u need to STFU !!!! read/listen/learn
Take your "we had a chance to win last night story" to a non basketball fan.
This game really goes to show that the knicks don't have much of an offense to speak of unfortunately. The only think that happens is iso's with Melo or JR and sometimes they kick to an open man and BD running a pick and roll.
when I watch other NBA teams there is always some kind of offensive system where people are getting open shotsyet for the knicks every single point we get it seems the players fought a war to score. besides fast breaks nothing at all has come easy offensively because of no offensive game plan.
Our ball movement will always be terrible without Lin unfortunately.
