For a team who averages almost 18 turnovers a game, I feel like switching their offense to a fast pace game is a step in the wrong direction. It will create much more turnovers, and give the opposing team easy buckets. Isiah Thomas is trying to copy the suns-- hey for all of you who dont know- WE ARE FAR FROM THE SUNS. They have 2 time MVP point guard in the league, steve nash, and have 2 of the most veratile players in shawn marion, amare stoudamire. Comparing knicks and suns is like comparing heaven and hell.
The Knicks have a slow moving center who fatigues fast and who likes to be featured in the paint. We also have 2 guards who turn the ball over alot in starbury and franchise. We have all seen currys ability to create and score in the paint, he has some of the best footwork for a bigman in this league, lets use that to our advantage. Why dont we build on that rather then running an offense that isnt set and turnover prone. What happens when the second line comes in, were gonna have nate running 100 miles an hour throwing the ball into the tenth row, q rich clutching his back in pain while runnign up the floor and jerome james fouling some1 and injuring himself all at the same time. Stick to your strenghs-
1)--Let marbury drive to the hole 2) give the ball to curry and let him create 3) pick and role with frye, let him knock down his 15 foot j, 4) look for our speed, athletism, and hustle to create second opportunites 5)Let nate use his energy in a positive way(ex- heckling opponets, looking for the steal and his highflying dunks) 6) Most important- Let our defese get set- 1 prob with the suns is although they score 120 ppg they let up 115 points a game, with our defense and this proposed offense, we will be give up 130-140 points a game. Come on.
I feel Isiah is trying this so that he can do the opposite of larry brown, just to clense the team of larrys style of play. This year we dont need to do this because we are more united and we trust eachoher more. This hole larry thing has united the team. They all have 1 common bond- and that is their hatred for larry- and that has united this team into one unit.
