Prigioni's defense is very underrated
a thunderous kick to the scrotum.
a nipple pierced with a knitting needle.
I like this lineup a lot. Obviously this is the first time it's played together so the rust is showing but the potential for this lineup to dominate both ends of the court is there.
this way prigioni and Cope can continue to play the P&R game and you'll have Jr and Novak out on the wings. I know Jr is the go to guy off the bench but he's not always consistent. With prigioni and Cope working the P&R thats another weapon we can have off the bench instead of watching ISO JR every play
Our defense is non existant so far this pre season... I'm concerned
Only problem with those lineups is where does Kidd go? He's going to be a big part of our success this year I feel.
althought im not concerned cause its pre season, the defense looks absolutely awful and the offense is absolutely dead. Oh well its no big deal, the lakers are 0-6 so its safe to say pre season isnt really a preview of whats to really come. i expect much better play during the reg season.
^ yeah I wouldn't be too concerned, Philly are playing with a lot more intensity than almost anyone would bother with in pre-season.
I know it's pre-season and all but show some commitment. How often have the Knicks found themselves playing catch-up early on. They need to assert themselves from the start.
2-Who steps up and scores for us when melo hits the bench? This shows how important Jr smith is for us. He's not always consistent but he is instant offense and he does have the ability to set up other players and get to the basket
Woody needs to find Prigioni some mins for sure though, he's not a quick PG but he's SMART and always makes the right decisions
I wonder what happens when shump returns, who's losing minutes?
Novak might've just lost us the game. What was he doing out there for so long? He missed practically every shot he took and whoever he was guarding was just isolating him and scoring. Not to mention him not boxing out and throwing the ball away.
I think Kidd will mostly be used as a backup pg but he'll get some minutes at SG if jr, shump, and brewer are all struggling and sometimes late in games/overtime. Woodson has more options then tubegalore
