This thread is slowly turning into a Melo discussion. Let's clean it up fellas.
People in the front office and/or people heavily involved in the Hornets organization read the Hornets Report forums and take it seriously. Different organization/city, but forums are read by at least one organization.
LOL.. I can only imagine Dolan trolling around here...
What makes you think they (or the players) don't read the forums...and occasionally post on them? I doubt they would make themselves known thou...for various reasons.
Even if they made themselves known no one would believe then but it makes you wonder do they do things like play 2k and trade players they don't want to play with or something if I was an NBA player I'd be Im the gym all the time no guest appearances or partying unless its a teammates wedding
Is this a serious thread? hahahahhahah......The front office come to KO? Man some of you guys need some professional help.
Bottom line, you have to get serious and focus on basketball, not decorating your apartment. You have to be hungry for it.
It's about the team, that's the bottom line, play team ball and SACRIFICE For the team. That's the thing, you gotta sacrifice.
Conditioning and sacrifice, that's what you have to learn.
I think it would be cool if a player came out on national TV, at the halftime break, and said "oh I am this guy on knicksonline.com forum".
I don't see why that would be so crazy, it would be good. Better than twitter.
I'm sorry but anyone who really believes that if someone from our front office actually came on here and saw a post and would get swayed by it is seriously kidding them self LMAO!!!
The front office? I guess from my point of view they are listening to fans too much. Look at the teams which are most successful in building a contender: Among them you will find Indiana, OKC, the Spurs and the Clippers. While LA by no means is a small market, they are in the long shadow of the Lakers which is giving them some leeway. I guess it is about being allowed to go through a drought when you are having the feeling you are on the right track. In New York fans are demanding something all the time: Fire Isiah, fire D'Antoni, trade Marbury, trade Amare, trade Melo, sign-and-trade Lin. There is no continuity. When on faction has got the feeling we are on the right track (e.g. D'antoni, move the ball, offense is the best defense) the next faction isn't happy. When they are happy (e.g. defense first, get Melo to commit to a defensive effort, play iso-basketball) the other faction goes bonkers. In an ideal world, a team of a GM (in an ideal world Masai Ujiri), and a coaching staff would walk into Dolan's office and say "This is what we are going to do. Give us 10 years and with the amount of money we can spend here and still be profitable, we can make this franchise, the most profitable and victorious in the history of the game, but stay out of basketball operations and let's weather all the **** storms which are going to come."
