a crippled underdog team.
can we get a break (as in healthy) basketball God?
I wonder what D'antoni and Walsh are thinking right now?
Shameful to be a Knick fan today. I'm not sure I think the Knicks could cover a spread in a series vs MIA, let alone a legit win.
Did you remember flagrant foul to called Chandler ?
Ok that was in miami home-court
Same happens in NY j.anthony foul hardly with a screen but there wasnt any call on him.
Its a foul.
If you do that miami or lebron it is called FLAGRANT
If miami do that to knicks it isn't foul ...
When carmelo wants ball battier or lebron grabs him,pulls him etc and these arent fouls.
When carmelo pushs lebron in front legit it is called foul.
Carmelo driving 3 heat players go to him directly with pushes, he fakes and battier etc fell on him but THERE WONT BE ANY CALL.
Lebron drives and if you touch him its a foul.
Lebron had a terrible game.
6 turnovers 1/9 shooting and fouls...
Referees are here to help him 10 free throw lets raise you to 15 pts in a terrible half.
Lebron shoots fairly good.
If anyone touch lebron or push him out of the momentum lets call himm fouls,flagrants.
Melo is better scorer,better finisher and better offensive player than lebron but they let lebron to shoot 20 free throws in a game and let carmelo to 6,7 free throws in a game.
Of course melo is negative sides too but they're not in the offense.
You cant do this hardly,foully defence even in Europe.
If there were a standart i'll say its ok its playoffs but lebron plays like untouchable meanwhile you can do anything to melo in the other side
I'm watching NBA since 2000-2001 and i haven't watched any player or team that much PROTECTED !
But i think that protection cant last to finals.
Eventually in Finals tougher team than New York would beat Heat easily.
Without referees help Lebron cant play in clutch.
His mental toughness is very low and his offense is based on referees easy calls.
Oklohama,Lakers i don't know but they can stopped easily in Finals
At this point, I am not to far from saying that the NBA does indeed fix games.
Do I think the Knicks had a shot? No, I don't. I don't even think if the Refs called the game properly that they would have a shot. However, I still thing that the NBA fixes games. Sorry, these Refs cannot be this bad. And if they are this bad, continue to be this bad year in and year out.
The heat is winning because they are healthy, focused, played together long enough to know their positions and play great defense. We lost because of injuries and the team is still trying to find its identity. trades,signing and coaching changes in one year will do this to any team....and we still made it to the playoffs. I know when we finally settle down with a permanent group of ballers...play Woodson Defense...gel together...we'll go far in the post season.
With all the crap the Knicks went thru this year...we should be thankful that they still are playing. I expect a better year in 2013. Our core just needs time to gel properly, practice and stay focused (like the Heat).
game 3 loss goes to Wood Son. starting Novak and keeping him in the game
when he cannot do ANYTHING, is a waste of space. horrific coaching move.
Jorts/Girafferies combo was EXCELLENT, yet Jorts does not return for rest of game?
Is this Wood Son holding him accountable for not shooting when he had an open shot? ridiculous!
Giraffe came back for scant moments, but I think he's still hurting. I was waiting for Jorts return
the entire game! WTF?!
iso Melo. when he's on, Knicks have a chance at winning, when he's off, Knicks have no chance
at all, especially against a powerhouse team. poor strategy.
Wood Son is in love with Junior Swish and Melo, but the lack of ball movement, coupled with
turnovers and bricks by Carmelicious led to the Knicks downfall this game, and probably the season.
if both players are not hot, Knicks lose.
See how every other winning team passes the ball around the horn, ball movement, player movement,
getting open threes, pick and rolls, backdoor plays... Knicks have next to nothing like this, instead
concentrating on iso's for Melo and letting him run the point. lamelo indeed.
LeBone was not on, yet he managed to overcome his deficiencies and chants of "a$$hole" to forge a blowout.
he is worth his weight in gold, and it is INSANE that he makes the same amount of money as STAT,
unfortunately, I think Wood Son has put the nails in his own coffin with this loss, I don't think D'oh-lan
will have him back, especially if Phil Jackson is available. Phil will bring with him an offensive AND
defensive game plan...
all this being said, not having Jeremy Lin playing makes a world of difference.
Baron von Diddy stlll can't play major minutes, and Mike von Bibby sucks, but Wood Son still loves him.
true PG's rule the NBA. game over.
