I'm just gonna listen to nothing D'antoni says ever again. Who knows if he even means it.
I don't know if this team will make the playoffs with this team. But I can't argue with the desire to move forward with younger players. But he should have handled the Steph situation better, and definitely not said they'd make the playoffs and not play their best player. Nuts.
But It's better to sit through a rebuilding year knowingly, than to mislead. Sucks to be looking forward to next year... But we're Knicks fans.. As long as I can remember, there is always next year.
I agree that O'bryant is a project and he'll never be more then a backup if that. But I consider Curry to not even be a project, hes a waste of space. Malik rose is also useless. According to mike D'antoni, jared jeffries will be our center when he comes back.
Pretty much everything that could go wrong did. No one really played well. DLee hustled a bit and was decent. Everyone else was trash. Crawford and ZBo were awful and took terrible shots through the entire game.
Let Danilo play more. Atlesast he TRYS to play Defense. He was always hustling and working to defend whoever he was on when he was in.
Nate looked like ****. Pure ****. Turning the ball over, taking bad, selfish shots.
Disgusting game, but this **** is bound to happen. Hopefully this will be a wakeup call to some guys to get their acts together.
Actually felt kinda bad for Curry when I saw him on the Bench. He looked like he was going to cry. Hopefully some common sense smacked him in the face and he'll learn that you have to earn playing time...
[QUOTE=MSGKnickz33;69022]No one said we would be up by 40. Marburys ability to score, break down defenses, and find open teammates would make this game closer. And i think hes a better defender then Duhorne. If you dont think he should play i cant change your opinion. Theres alotta people who feel that way. I just think with how hard hes worked out, with him showing effort at improving his attitude, and what hes gettin paid he should be playing. IHe should at least get the chance to earn some of his money. We've payed him alotta money and obviously things havent gone well since isiah brought in larry brown but thats not marburys fault. That specific year, his attitude couldve been better considering what he was gettin paid but hes been better since 06-07.
I agree MSG. No one said we would be up by 40 or that we would even be winning but at least he MIGHT have provided us with an opportunity to be closer.
I know the sixers are a better team but damn this was embarrassing. We didn't even compete. D'antoni and the Knicks have got to get this defense together because when we're not scoring, we are getting our ass handed to us. At least with some defense the end score could look a little respectable. It seemed like everything the sixers put up went in.
You guys have difficulties recognizing sarcasm. Lighten up, I was joking with the up by 40 stuff.
And with or without Stephon, we lose. Philly is a good team and we played our worst game of the season. Atleast we got it out of the way early.
Steph is done. Deal with it. Lets move on.
