What happen ????
Ten Raptors players shot 5 or more shots tonight
Six Knicks players shot 5 or more shots tonite
This is a preseason game right ???
Some one PLEASE tell "Melo & Stat" this is a preseason game they dont have to compete on who score the highest points per game .. the two scoring-stars are suppose to be providing scoring for their teammates, plus be a big example at playing Double-DEFENSE in the 4th quarter.
Both Melo & Stat have to be traded if they are going to perform like that in a lineup .. not one, both have to go.
I had to scream a double-A Rod at this Knicks vs Raptors game...
just preseason guys...we better prepare for BK and Miami...i dont want to see us going down 0-2
we gave up so many boards and were out of position most of the game with pointless swtiches...
tyson (3 boards) wtf
i felt like everyone was so focused on amare on offense, that we lost tyson to just standing around.
play of the game..: melo pass to amare on post, both barrel into the lane side by side..was priceless
melo was unstoppable down low, but bricking it from deep...should have stopped taking so many off balance 3's on one foot.
amare was beasting it with prigs and kidd on the 2nd unit...i believe amare should start the game but then sit around the 8 minute point and come back when melo sits and play mostly on the 2nd unit
We really showed our age today when no one was running back, didnt have any fastbreak points
Melo really stopped the ball alot more in this game when he catches it, and everyone stops moving and then he decides on half of those positions to start up the ball movement again with the clock running down
wonder how brewer will look in the starting 5...white seems to dwindle when playing with anthony but stepped it up when he went to the bench. to play with anthony, we need a 2 guard who can also not be afraid to make play's (meaning taking those shots instead of making a weak pass just cus your afraid to miss) or driving it in to get anthony open instead and not try to play off of anthony 100% of the time. JR fits that mold but i dont think woodson will ever play him there.
Its a preseason game...at this point i'm hoping we make the playoffs as better then 8th seed
I wouldnt put Melo & Stat in the same lineup
Nor would I have Melo or Stat as our closer or finisher in the 4th quarter
I dont like having two players who never help each other on a TEAM.
I cant blame one sillyboy without blaming the other sillyboy
Im fed up with both (Melo & Stat), put them on the next smoking-trade ..
Tonight they played like the worst PF & SF tandem in the NBA and the WNBA
STAT's problem is when he gets the ball and nothin is there he just passes it back out because he cant create anything when attacking
Watch him, he catches looks and if he cant shoot he passes it out, he's gotta use that footwork and get a hook shot or attack the paint reverse pivot and finish
Melo has to slide in/out on a STAT/Felton pick n roll, either back door for a lob or move behind his defender to the open spot
We got 3 more games to get it together so we're fine
In all seriousness though, STAT & Melo just doesn't seem to work as a tandem. If this continues through the season, one of them has to go. I'm really hoping that the Raptors game was just another bump in the road, and not a big issue in the future.

I see Woody pulling a Girardi by benching STAT and making him come in with the 2nd unit sometime this season..
