The man himself doesn't deserve *any* shame or insult, but where are all the Woodson losers (sup, Ginger) who were creaming their pants a week or so ago, and brought out their pitchforks and bibles to thump the moment some reality on Woodson was shed, which is of course tethered to Melo, which is of course tethered to D'antoni and his exit, which in turn is directly linked to Walsh leaving.....which is of course all centered around James Dolan, and the James Dolan vision.
Which is what we now have. Just with some lingering remnants of positives that Walsh (and D'antoni) helped bring to us, and that we have a passionate and gutty, even if flawed, head coach.
Melo people, Dolan people, and Anti-D'antoni people are peas in a pod, and go hand in hand. This is all typical, James Dolan bull****....the only difference is some fans deluded themselves to deeply into thinking D'antoni was the issue, that they lost site of all perspective, and actually believed that he would leave and we would become champs overnight.
What happened to us competing against anyone right away following D'antoni leaving?
A quick historical recap:
*Walsh and D'antoni didn't want to do the Melo deal. Dolan did. We lost players Walsh and D'antoni wanted; Dolan chose Melo.
*Walsh wanted to re-assert control of his vision and the D'antoni's, Dolan resisted. Walsh left.
*Melo quits on the team and D'antoni, D'antoni after proving huge success with Melo out and a reasonable PG, implores Dolan to move accept the past mistakes (see: above) and move forward, Dolan resisted, Dolan sided with Melo and against D'antoni. D'antoni, like Walsh, leaves.
*Melo magically starts playing like Melo, despite playing in an offense that was virtually identical to what was there as D'antoni offense: centered around ball movement, players committing as a team, creating and taking lots of 3pters, and small lineups being used to great success.
People are burying their heads in the sand if they don't wanna recognize the deep probs we got, and don't wanna open their eyes to what has gone down. The excuses for Melo, the hatred for D'antoni.......whatever, it can ALL be summarized by referring to it as one thing: Dolan's Plan.
