    again, im a fan of Marbury, its just defeating to see him not take the role he should in our offense...its like he insists on playing his way or no way on a whim...
    okay then........

    have u thought about the fact that he could have passed the ball quite a number of times but the player hasnt made the shot?

    oh dear

    sometimes its where you put the ball, not who you give it to


    havent seen the game or the highlights, so i dont know the exacts, but the past three games werent 1 assist games...im not blaming just marbury,get off his nuts, i was pointing out one assist by your premier guard wont win you games, especially against the champs...even in preseason

    Seems Marbs played alright looking at his stats.

    I dont see too much wrong with tonights result. The fact is we beat them the other day and now we lost by 11pts with D'Antoni switching around the lineups and checking out what he wants to go with.
    I wouldnt worry about the result too much. Knicks have definitley improved, how much we dont know yet but it wont be worse then last season

    We have to go inside to be a consistent team. Scoring looks good when shots are droping but Shooting 20+ 3s is going to kill us in the long run. I know the players are enjoying this style of play, but, they need to lay off those 3's.

    Damn I just watched Dantoni's Post Game, and it looks like Eddy is out indefinetly! Sounds like he's the fist coach to hold Eddy responsible for being overweight and out of shape. Lets see if Eddy has the heart (no pun intended) to break though the rotation.

    so you were saying it to me?
    How was i on Marbury's nuts? all i said was there are more things to take into affect like players not making there shots.
    Your the one that said "its just defeating to see him not take the role he should in our offense...its like he insists on playing his way or no way on a whim"
    How can u make that statement when u even said u didnt watch the game?
    If anything it looks like Marburys is passing more then shooting, isnt this what a PG does?

    No need to get into a argument over this, The team is looking alot better this preseason

    He jumped and landed on someone's foot. Same thing happened to Deron Williams last week. At the very most, he might sit out the game on Friday.

    i agree he should pass more than shoot, im just sayin its up to the guards to find open players in the right position, just as much as its those players roles to find their positions and help each other get open. why does malik rose even receive the ball above the 3 point line? especially if he's going to take not just one shot, but 3-4? its just bad decision making, the same problem we had last year

    and i admitted i hadnt seen the game or the highlights, and said it seemed from the stats, thats what was going on..but i have seen more than enough games over the past 2-3 years to see the stats were very comparable to previous seasons. fact, we went from 25 assists to ...i dont even want to know how many tonight, and most of those came in the last 4 minutes or so.

    agreed, no need for arguments, just expressing that everyone on the team is involved for their failures weather it be tonights game, or last season or the season before. im just tired of players getting passes like they arent part of the mess (from star's to craw to nate..they all have their flaws, some just hurt our situation more than others at times) certain guys need to learn their roles and not play out of them...their starting to break mold a little and its too close to opening day for all that mess, hopefully dantoni runs them hard on defensive drills and ball movement before the season.

    we are still in MUCH better shape than previous years, so im still a happy knicks fan..i still think nearly every day about the pink slip delivered to the steps of MSG, i dont know why, but the image itself kills me...so atleast we can look back and laugh at this point.

    Boston will be playing organized postseason B-Ball in the regular season with all 12 players.
    So do not look for a Knick Win tonight vs the Celtics this team is organized in just 6 preseason games. They are looking for blowouts and lowering their oponents scoring.

    I think its time for Dantoni to make the quick change of letting the 2nd Unit start and the 1st Unit come off the bench to experiment with Boston.

    2nd unit: Nate, Marbury, Chandler, Malik (No Shooting), and Curry.
    1st unit: Duhorn, Crawful, Q.Rich, Zach, and Lee.

    I dont know if anyone notice in last night game or in the Nets vs Celtics game, but Boston has the deepest depth chart off the bench than all the teams in the league. Denver is 2nd, and New Orleans is 3rd.
    The system-plan inwhich all 3 of these teams are playing to their bench players has been improving each game to make the team excell.

    The Knicks shot 4-31 three's in this game. That is a sure sign of undevelope frustration. It would've been understandable if the 24 second shot clock was down to 4 or 2 seconds left. No body is going to defend a player standing on the three point line especially if the players are Zach, Lee, Q.Rich, Malik, and Crawful who totaled 16 shots from the 3-point line.

    The Knicks last two games their PG beat all his teammates up the court there was no teammates running on either side of the PG wings to pass to.
    What happen to the uptempo run n gun system?
    It look like the Knicks fell back into their halfcourt offense attack from last season in their last two games. However, the Nets & Celtics are running teams.... I just thought that coach Dantoni would have come up with an uptempo plan on how to beat both teams back before they could set up their defense.

    Mardy Collins defensive performance has always been better than Crawful offensive performance from college to the NBA.
    Eddie House should've been arguing with Crawful they both have the same roles on their team.
