And you call youself "a knick fan"?
and everyone knows it.
im a big knick fan, but you really just have to accept that the team sucks.
i think we need to unload the roster and all the bad contracts.
package marbury with anderson and norris
package sweetney with hardaway and jyd
basically get rid of every contract in exchange for expiring contracts.
then, sign big free agents next season - such as kwame brown. players like stromile swift, jason richardson, eddy curry, etc. would be much better to build around than this current roster.
And you call youself "a knick fan"?
we all are desapointed right now. Just give them another chance, we're lucky that kind of games comes early in the season, now they will be on the same page.
We know this roster could be a very good one.
i'm so pissed up right now, but we will comeback, it can't be other way.
Go NY, just GO nowwwwwwwwww....
I think your wrong, Knicks do NOT stink and can/will be good! They will pull and underdog thing this year and prove people like YOU wrong, even though you call yourself a Knick-fan....
I think these 2k4-2k5 Knicks will be this year's 2k3-2k4 version of the Miami Heat. With the exception at the center position... This team is too good. I think Marbury is acting to soft. He needs to get out the and score. Boston played us straight up. Marbury did not look to score. He has to stop doing that. The Knicks are showing no threat. Not one player has shown to be a threat on the knicks. Boston beat us last night because of Paul pierce. The Knicks gave so much attention to Pierce, his teammmates were able to move around freely and move the ball well and excecute.
I'd say we have to pay more attention to the D. I mean we've got guys that can put up big numbers but noone of them seems to be a hustle D. When we'll get our defense touch everything's gonna change for good for us, sure about that. You can not just outscore your opponents, you have to limit them in scoring as well. That's why Detroit was so good last year and we should follow their example. I'd have given Ariza more minutes because he seems to be the guy who knows how to play tight D, that could've given us a boost I think.
Someone who really needs to pick up their defense is Tim Thomas. C'mon, this guy is 6'10, athletic, and plays the SF position. He usually has the height advatage in that position against other SF's. Bottom line is he is very responsible for Paul Pierce's big game last night. Not that this alone would've saved the Knicks, but it's a position the Knicks should be exploiting on defense regularly.
Speaking of Tim, he seems to be like sleepy or something. I dunno what's up with him now but as for me he's lost some of his game.
i think i have come to accept that isiah made a mistake in the vanhorn trade
You think so because of KVH last game's performance or cuz of TT wasn't good last two games for us?
Isiah got Tim Thomas to fill a defensive void that Vanhorn was a part of. The problem is Thomas isn't playing good defense. Nazr, the other player we got it that trade just sucks, plain and simple. I'm not quick to say, get rid of Tim Thomas, he can do better, it's just a matter of the coaching staff focusing on his weaknesses, and improving them.
Mohammed is definately a candidate for a trade in my opinion. Losing him is next important to getting rid of Shandon Anderson. These two are the most underperforming players the Knicks have right now, with no end in sight.
VanHorn trade mistake? I was the first to say that! As soon as it was made! Keith was a gaurenteed 20 points every night, Tim is either 30 pts one nite or 2 another! Mohammed will/can be good, trust me. We all saw the numbers he put in the end of last season. He's capable, just needs more time, I'll give a bit more time, I think if he's not at that level soon though, then we should trade him. I think Tim Thomas should be traded, PERIOD! Get Keith back (yeah right)! OK, OK, get someone good /better though....
In a way, it did work out, Ariza is gonna be the small forward with some work.....
(Though Keith coul play Power Forward) So maybe it didn't work out? I don't know, depends what we mite get for Tim....
Kwame Brown = Unproven 10/5 per nightOriginally Posted by a knick fan
Swift = Unproven, sporadic
J-Rich = good stats on bad team. Also, he just got an extension
Eddy Curry = lazy fatass bum in the mold of Kandi Man
Now that the entire world has been calling TT out and is done ranting about him, can we stop? If you think KVH is going to give you 20/10 a night you are wrong. And in addition, I'd like to find a stat about how many ppg the person KVH defends averages
listen we are 0-2 and 0-30 just wait damn.................
omg what a horrible topic, they don't suck, if your a big fan how do you knock your own team? and why is that dude who started this always looking to drop the whole team for kwame brown (he has a plea in another topic too)... it's not like the knicks are the eastern all-stars... they are going to lose, just like every other team in the nba.... they'll get it together though.
