    Nyk Logo Head Coach & Coaching Staff

    WHO ARE THEY?

    Isiah Thomas (College - Indiana)
    Mark Aguirre (College - DePaul)
    George Glymph (College - Benedict)
    Dave Hanners (College - North Carolina)
    Herb Williams (College - Ohio State)
    Brendan Suhr (College - Montclair State)
    Greg Brittenham (College - Nebraska-Kearney)
    Roger Hinds (College - Brooklyn College)
    Anthony Goenaga (From - Long Island University)

    The above CREW played and coaced to different Styles and Systems inwhich throughout their tour as Knicks Coaches they dont see eye to eye on Defense or Offense they are to busy each day on casting the blame on someone else.

    The Knicks Head Coach and his coaching staff are not on the same page.
    If they were the Knicks would've got rid of alot of the "Individual Players" on the Knicks Roster.
    The Zach Randolph Trade was supposed to be a three to four team trade adding only new "Team-Players" to the Knick Roster (Ron Artest was supposed to be added to the Knicks this past offseason. Q.Richardson or Jefferies was supossed to be included in the trade this offseason along with Francis & Frye.).
    I have to blame alot of the Knicks trades for "Indivudual Players" on the Knicks Coaching Staff for not speaking up and being a coaching confident informer about what this Knick Team is lacking.

    The Knicks could've WON alot of games this season with having several "Three SF Lineups" such as "D-Knick, Chandler, Balkman, and Artest". It only takes THREE co-existing Players in a lineup to keep the other two players flowing to their tempo.

    Drafting Chandler & D-Nicks this June in the draft and watching how well they co-exist together as a "TANDEM" in the Summer League Games should have made Coach Dave Hanners stand-up and recomend the two Rookies for leaders in the Rookie of the year contest if both were given the right guidance and training.
    Chandler & Demetris Nichols practicing with Ron Artest & Balkman this season would've gave the Knicks a Small Powerful lineup with two offensive 6.8 Rookies and two 6.7 Defensive SF that plays extrodinary without the ball in practice that dominate the offense & defense side of the court.

    We Knick-Fans have to stop Blaming all these Knick Losses on the Knick-Players. Why? we all knew that players "Marbury, Crawford, Curry, and Zach" were the top leaders of "Turnovers" that lack defense in their talents before they became a Knick.
    The Knicks Coaching-Staff knew the samething and it was their JOB to change the concept of these players overall talent into a "Team-Concept".


    We have 4 years of Knowledge of the type of Players Isiah Thomas has traded for "One Dimensional Players" that concept performance is One on One halfcourt-offense basketball (And-1 B-Ball).
    From 2003 Stephon Marbury to 2007 Zach Randolph, the Knick President hasn't learned in four years of losing that these "Individual Players" are best at making the LOTTERY.

    Last season the Knicks started the season with a "Two-Unit Team", where the 2nd Unit outplayed the 1st Unit in every game.
    Coach Isiah Thomas 1st Unit consisted of PG-Marbury, SG-Francis, SF-Q.Rich, PF-Frye, C-Curry.
    Coach Mark Aquire 2nd Unit consisted of PG-Nate, SG-Crawford, SF-Balkman, PF-Lee, and any one of the first unit players as the 5th man for this unit.

    What went wrong with utilizing the success of these "Two-Units" were the Head Coach and his coaching staff not building on the success of the 2nd Unit by keeping that lineup together and adding the best co-existing 5th man to that Unit (which was Channing Frye).

    Imagine how well that 2nd Unit would've clicked together and became more creative on the court if that 2nd Unit played all of last season 82 games?
    While the Head Coach and his coaching staff worked on the co-existing players in the 1st Unit utilizing the skillz of
    Guards: Marbury, Francis, and Collins.
    Fowards: Q.Richardson, Jefferies, and Malik.
    Centers: Curry, James, and Kato.

    At the end of lastseason 2006-7 season we all would've known what type of 6th man player was needed to improve the 2nd Unit (6.8 SF/SG-Demetris Nichols & 6.11 C/PF-Randolph Morris) of "Nate, Crawford, Balkman, Lee, and Frye".
    And we would've known what players had to be traded, buyout, or belong as the 14th & 15th Man on the roster from the 1st Unit Players of
    Guards: Marbury, Francis, and Collins.
    Fowards: Q.Richardson, Jefferies, and Malik.
    Centers: Curry, James, and Kato.

    Great outlook on something people don't really look into. We just have BAD EVERYTHING, its hard to find positives on this team except Lee, Balkman, and Robinson.

    The father of a guy I work with scouts for the Mets. He tells me that the Knicks have one of the worse coaching staffs in the league. I'm only familiar with Herb Williams and Mark Aguirre so I can't say but things like turnovers should have been addressed last summer.
