Something is very-very fishy about Camby only playing in 4 games out of the 11 games .. Woody's article on Camby being healthy to play in all regular season games shows Woody wants to play Camby.
Camby is an old-head veteran inwhich a veteran coach ask the old-head veterans are they ready to play before the game ....
Do Camby have issues? Hell Yeah! with Dolan personally trading him to Denver for not showing up to one of Dolan's function during the offseason .. plus Camby still has issues about Denver quick decision at trading him to the Clippers for nothing in return 2008 offseason .. which had Melo written all over that trade when Camby mention teammates must play defense in the playoffs.
Why is this guy talking like Lin and td beat us?
I really miss shump. He would have put pressure before they even touched half court. That's what knicks have been missing.
New strategy if the refs starts calling pity pat fouls. Foul harder. Nobody seems have the guts to do it except Tyson. Start running plays that runs into refs and make them a part of the game.
Break the rim. This **** works. Punching fire extinguisher does not.
i dont remember such devastation to knicks. Even miami didnt loose in such score. Knicks didnt existed was no D Tyson worst ever game . game to forget.Why knicks allways loose when they trading former players.
We are isolating Melo way too much again instead of starting the game off with ball movement. This is causing the Knicks to get off to a horrible tempo that is dictated by the rockets. Its not that we can't score by isolating melo, but it doesn't get the other four involved in the game. Hes scoring more because he isn't swinging the ball out on the double team, which he is taking and scoring on. We are really losing our defensive intensity and every rebound in a battle for us. Teams are starting to expose us on the inside by either posting up a solid big man or simply attacking the basket. Woodson has got to stop playing small.
I may be wrong but did Tyson play every second of the first quarter in the last two games and then about three to four minutes in the second quarter without sitting down? I may be wrong so maybe someone can put me straight. I kept sitting there thinking he`ll sit in a minute and Camby will come in but no.
Watching last nights game was like watching D`Antoni ball. No D, settling for the three and what the hell has happened to Woodsons substitutions? Marcus Camby must be hurt or maybe unfit in some way. Why else would you DNP him when we are struggling with interior d and being destroyed on the boards? It should be automatic, Tyson sits, camby comes in.
i loved how woodson said the past two games the knicks have been trying to outscore the opponent as opposed to getting stops yet he sits brewer for almost the whole game and doesn't put in camby.
also on offense he's gotta stop isolating melo. there was one play where they did it three straight times. the results were a deflection out of bounds, defensive foul, and offensive foul turnover.
all in all im sure they'll figure it out. i cant see a veteran team like this not figuring it out.
Obviously we are capable of competing with the elite teams, however, only if we get certain things right and at the moment we do not.

I dont get it, a bucket is a bucket, anytime Carmelo iso's people complain, he scored 37 efficient points and only about 10 off of iso
We didn't lose cause of iso ball, hell he only started scoring when no once else could
Also I did not say a word about isos. I talked about effort on the defensive end. Melo has to lead by example (which he has done brilliantly in the first 5 games).
he got his 37 pretty much in the flow of the offense, the same offense we ran the first 10 games. The Houston loss was about effort and defense. JR the same he was playing the same way the 1st 10 games shots were just falling
the fan base uses iso-ball as excuses toooooooooo much, its normal for players to do such. I hate reading that because its not an analysis of our team plays and it shows guys dont know anything
Anthony/Smith are being used like Nowitski/Terry if you cant see that then you dont know basketball
not you Pat, just guys in general
If you are not doing that Woodson has to send the right signal to the whole squad: Bench those who are not defending well. People called out D'Antoni a lot for that, yet defense was not even a part of his game plan. It is part of the identity Woodson is trying to establish so he has to be consistent even if that means losing a game or two: If your not working your ass of on D, you're not going to see a lot of minutes. It's as easy as that.
Early on in the game we tried moving the ball and nothing was happening and Houston started pulling away so what happens next is you get Carmelo going and boom we're back in the game
Regardless of anything we had 22 assists, we shot 43% from 3
We lost due to rebounding 49-30 Houston and defense 51% FG, 56% 2's and 89% FT's
Harden shot more FT's then our entire team as well
