totally agreed, it ain't over till the fat lady sings in mike wood son's toilet!
think about every game knicks lost this year... Melo and/or JR not hitting,
stuck in iso mode.
think about every game knicks won, at beginning of year and 13 game win
streak. passing the ball, lots of assists. DEFENSITY.
#Knickstape = contributions from everyone, not just Melo/JR having a great game.
think about the other members of #Knickstape, that made this squad a TEAM,
and what they've contributed to this series (other than game 2):
Novak. garbage time. Camby, zip. Copeland, tidbits of time. Kidd, big fat zero.
Chandler, half the man-handler he used to be. STAT, minute minutes.
Earl Barron. 18 rebounds in his only game played, perhaps he deserves a couple
minutes to show knicks how to block out?
agreed, if Shumpert has a good game, Felton returns to point guard form,
along with the Prigger actually getting minutes and scoring, the knicks stand
a good chance of winning.
a return to fundamentals must include boxing out, passing around the horn,
finding the open man, and stopping the iso-bs.
this is not optimism, it is a reality that is easily within reach.
Melo and JR must stop this I-I-I mentality, stop putting the team on their
back, and let the #Knickstape play like the #2 team in the east, the Atlantic
division champions, the 54 game winners they are.
we ain't going out this way.
