Interestingly, Anthony credited Nets coach Jason Kidd, an ex-Knick, for Brooklyn's success on Monday.
"They played to the mismatches. That's something that Jason does well, even when he was here. That was his big thing: play to the mismatch," Anthony said.
As I said in the "TEAM MELO" thread...this team misses....
LEADERSHIP/ACCOUNTABILITY/CLUCTH GENES/3PT SHOOTING
In a nutshell....Jason Kidd first 40gms of the 54win team last year. The real MVP of our team last year as it appeared his aura rubbed off on J.R. Smith in Melo's absence.
When one player is out of position on defense, defending a wide-open offensive set play that we use consistently can be over looked. But when two players are way out of positition on defense, especially when one of those players out of position happen to be our defensive-rock Tyson Chandler, who had plenty of time to switch with Barg, rather than stay out on the perimeter.
Time-Out .. Time-Out .. Time-Out
But Metro u started throwing wood after wood into the fire first, which made Crazy 8 throw gasoline.
Now I have to go to the next forum to see the creative art of Crazy 8 advancements ..
when KO forum was GREAT having both ur creativeness building this forum with new creative members joining left n right throughout a decade of the most losing team in the NBA .. New York Knicks.
I have had enough of this guy and tonight put me at the end of my rope with him. If anybody didn't see what happened tonight in the 2nd half then you was watching a whole different game.Knicks was still playing awful in the 3rd and Melo went out of the game. It was like watching a completely different team out there.Everybody was toughing the ball,everybody was on the same page and the team had chemistry.During that time the Knicks came back and took the lead. They didn't just take the lead they took control of the game b/c the whole team was on the same page and was playing together. Bargnani was on fire and was scoring at will and so was Hardaway jr,Chandler.Then for some odd reason the coach put in Melo and kept Bargnani on the bench and down went the Knicks just like the Titanic!! The ball movement was gone,defense was gone and the chemistry was gone b/c Melo iso was back and it was brick after brick being shot by melo.There is no way melo should have been out on that court b/c the knicks was playing to good.Bargnani on the other hand should have been in the game and its ashame he didn't get to finish the game b/c he played his butt off.The knicks would have won with him and the others that started that run still out there to finish the game.
As long as Melo is here this what we got to look forward to and I am sick and tired of watching the same ol story over and over.I want Melo gone and I want him gone now!!!!

Well after we were clicking and took the lead, Woodson took out Prigs and put Felton in. That was the beginning of what started our skid. Felton didn't orchestrate the offense properly the rest of the time he was in. You're right, Melo took his signature long contested twos in the forth as well, but the Prigs/Felton swap killed us. Before we took the lead Prigs was running the offense based around the pick and pop with Bargs.. and it was working. Even JR started to settle down and knock down shots for a stretch. Prigs also sparked us with his hustle, forcing a couple turnovers and playing MCR tough and we took back the lead.
I will never understand Woodson's love affair with Felton. He's a terrible defender and not a good playmaker for a PG. When he's in the game I basically wait for him to screw up and I can't relax. Felton is awful.
Knicks are 0-5 since Chandler has come back to the starting line, but that's on Melo.
JR Smith missed 11 of his 16 shots with 5 lazy fouls, but that's on Melo.
Woodson played Pablo and Tim 17 & 16 minutes each, but that's on Melo.
Tyson Chandler got out rebounded by 6"8 Fowards and 6"7 PG...but of course, that's on Melito.
Felton vulnerable on defense, streaky on offense, plays 31 minutes by Woodson...that one is definitely Melo's fault.
Woodson refuses to acknowledge his team has been exposed switching on defense since 2011...but that's all on Melo.
Bargnani with 5 turnovers, 4 fouls and only 4 rebounds in 28 minutes...he scores 20 points on a hot night, could of scored more even though he's a career 43% FG shooter and him staying that hot is unrealistic....but we should of fed him more because he's Bargnani, his offense is unpredictable and he's been an unstoppable force ever since he's came to the NBA averaging a career of 15ppg on 43% FG shooting...Damn Melo, why no you pass the ball to the B E A S T known as Bargnani? These fans know who's the better option offense...it's definitely not Carmelo Anthony but Andrea Bargnani. We know his history with leading NBA offenses to success in his career.
Melo had 7 assist and lead the team in assist.....he's such a god damn stat padder, I want him off the team for doing productive things.
This thread makes me sick, sounds like a spoiled baby crying not knowing what he wants.
Knicks lose and you don't even know how to make sense of anything. Get yourself back together.
This is a Knicks team thats not playing hard for their loser of a coach, Woodson has a problem the guy is too stubburn with his defensive schemes and he doesn't adjust to in game situations. Melo is worth every penny of that contract, The brings it every night from out scoring his team to out rebounding his team and 2nd with assets on his team closing in on 130 assists this season.
As big as a knicks fan as I am I honestly hope Melo leaves and wins a title somewhere. He only has but so many prime years left and he shouldn't have to waste it with one of the most poorly constructed teams i've ever seen.
Melo needs a coach that will force him to play team ball the entire game...Melo should not be bringing the ball upcourt. He shouldn't have to take the final shot all the time. I like melo, i just wish he played more like LBJ, Durant, George.....Guess we may not ever see this happen. Honestly, i enjoyed our team more before Melo came here. Not to pick solely on Melo, as its a team game, and coach is just as liable
