Because standing around uninterested is good D.
Because fouling a guy so he gets FT's and possession instead of just an easy basket is good D.
Because laying off your man that can't drive by 10 feet is good D
I can go all day when it comes to Nate Robinson's defense...He has all the keys to be a great defender, he just is either lazy or cares too much about scoring to give any thought to defense besides gambling in passing lanes a chance.
I don't know if Robinson should become the starter or not but if Dantoni has to chew his ass out every game then im all for it.Fact is Robinson HAS to calm down out there.It seems anymore that he is always trying to start a argument with the other team or his coach.IMO that needs to stop b/c he is hurting himself and his team.
Don't get me wrong I like Nate but he has to control his antics on the floor and if that means Dantoni,having to chew his ass out to get his head back on straight then im all for it.He was a completly difirent player after the coach balled him out.
Anyways congrats to the Knicks on the win.Lee,Hughes had great games and Nate had a huge forth.
Larry and Nate have good chemistry and high IQ.
NATE > DUHON
Duhon is straight mielda, I have about 30 clips of Duhon throwing the ball away in critical situations.
Did my boy Nate start this game? I read an article saying he would, I'm def downloading this game I freaking missed it.
Video coming soon!
Wow, Larry Hughes with a huge game. We are still only 2 1/2 games back from that 8th seed! I'll be looking forward to tomorrow night's game on NBA TV!
Lets not give up just yet guys.
yo people in okc durant is injured and somebody else and is funny that malik is avg 10 points and 6 rebound that **** had me laughing lol and they have been wining games latley without durant
i know this is not about the knicks but thank god we traded zach because he did the stupidest shot against the cavs today to try to win the game u should see it on sportcenter he is so stupid.
Dantoni was yelling and chewing Nate a new A-hole and Nate gave Dantoni a high-five afterward....u got to LUV Nate the Great
The Knicks beat a team they were supposed to beat....our previous losses to Bum coach Skiles Bucks were do to our short rotation of players....and having only two guards in our rotation.
I like Larry Hughes as our 3rd Guard but 42 minutes and 20 shot attempts....Dantoni loss his MF....ing mind. U dont give a low IQ SG that kind of privledge (over his new teammates) b/c he will expect it in the future (recall inconsistent Crawful).
When was the last time we had 20 turnovers a game.....if u said Crawful 42 miuntes and 20 shot attempts u are absolutely right.
The last time Larry Hughes had a game like that was 3 years ago.
Session has been playing great all season for his FA future....hooking-up tight with his homeboy teammate Villanueva (the two players chemistry have 10 times more playbook plays than Duhon & Lee however....Lee hustle IQ and complimentary chemistry with teammates 'Duhon & Nate' plus strong rebounding has the Duhon & Lee as the favor).
now if only NJ and CHI lose tonight
i just hope hughes doesnt take those type of shots again @ the end or at all for that matter
stuckey vs robinson should be fun
D"Antoni was recently quoted as saying that Nate's greatest strength was his ability to get his shot off at any time. He then added that Nate's greatest weakness was his ability to get his shot off at any time.
Nate, Harrington and Hughes are "let me do it" offensive players. They are forever looking for their shot and do not get the rest of the team involved. At the same time, when they are on, they are really good.
Detroit has been doing much better since iverson sat down. Oklahoma has played better without either Durant or Green. Individual talent does not necessarily make a "team" better. i would like to see nate spread the ball around more.
First off: Larry Hughes is done, his career is finished, and he's always been selfish, which is something Al and Nate are not.
Al Harrington and Nate Robinson still have game. So what if they're shooters? They can score the ball at a high rate of efficiency. If they don't shoot, who will? Jared Jeffries and Q? They do have to look for teammates, and they do. However, they do have to shoot. Ewing and Houston shot the ball, and so did John Starks and Sprewell. The difference is that those guys were winning, and they won largely because we had a strong front-line.
Get these guys a good big man, and you'll see what they can do. Until then, please don't be so cynical.
