    I'm not worried about if we have enough three point shooters. I'm confident that the shooters we have right now will be enough. I agree with AF718, last year we shot way too many threes, it'd be nice to attack the rim more and get in the paint.

    I'n not worried about the scoring... we got that. Plus the defense will open up the offense for us if we're struggling.

    Spreading the floor is big, attacking the basket is bigger. We have guys who can get to the rim, so they gotta be relentless.

    The heat were like one of the worst three point shooting teams in the league last year. Other than a few games where Miller or Battier exploded they couldn't do anything outside. Yet their defense and relentless basket attacking made up for it.

    The past three years under mda's offense the knicks have relied on the three ball, see where that got us...no where, proving that it isn't as important in a offense as people think

    This is an inside out team with Melo, and Amare. Higher percentage of points should be coming in the paint. Attack, attack, attack the cup should be the slogan next year. Draw fouls, get their bigs in trouble early. Use the cuts and passing to dice up the paint, then that should give our "average" shooters some space to hit those shots. Novak, Smith, even the 15-20 footers for Melo and Amare as well. But being lazy given the strengths, will be the thing that does the knicks in. If we can remember to move without the ball, take shots 10 feet or in early in the game, it will do wonders for our outside shooting. The problem with outside shooting, is if you have to rely on it to win games and the way this club is built, it is not relied upon heavily when there are weapons like Amare and Melo. When those 2 are drawing attention on the strong side, Tyson can attack with a lob from the weakside.

    Defense will take us to the next level-

    but I am still confident as hell about our O too, both letters are inside Woodson.

    So lets stop worrying about our offense, smoke some, watch porn, and go to sleep.

    If he could run of screens he would be perfect. But he is brilliant for our floor spacing.

    Beautiful highlights by Lin in this video, really orchestrating the offense.

    BTW Dafug was Melo doing passing the ball to open guys and making plays? Like the play at 3:27, Melo why make that pass?? your terrible!

    3 point shooting won't be an issue in the regular season cause defenses won't key in on Novak like they did in the playoffs cause Defense isn't as intense. In the playoffs you need defense to win. We are good Felton, Novak, And JR while streaky are decent enough to carry the load of filler points scored around an offense based around Melo and Amare.

    At this point, I'm really not that worried about anything but injuries. I guess we still are a bit weak from long range but given our cap space we had to make moves. Novak, JR, Kidd, and Felton are all decent enough for us. We have good perimeter and interior defenders in Brewer, Shump (when he comes back) and in Camby and Chandler. Melo and Stat are proven scorers and Felton has worked with Stat before.
    But the overall health of a team can either make or break a season no matter how much talent you put on it.

    Almost had me replay the video again till I realized Lin was already hurt. Also I was at that game, so double FAIL for me. I guess my sarcasmo meter was off today.

    But seriously, that's what people don't realize why Melo has struggled. When no one else is making shots or moving around what is the star player on the team supposed to do? What did Kobe do?
