I'm still saying 35...The East got top heavier...
lol the cavs lost to the craptors
Im not tryin to be negative but i dont know how anyone can expect this team to be good this year...we'll probably win about 30 games, theres no way we can make the playoffs with duhorn as our point guard.

Missed the game tonight had to work... Any positives come from tonight?
I have faith in Donnie Walsh
We know that D-Lee is not the best interior defender and also undersized but he is our best defensive rebounder. He should be our PF and Darko our center. Period. Too bad Dangtoni think JJ wil have any trade value playing 36 min with those stats. That what he gives you in 10-12 min minus the assists.
Damn...only if we had a playmaker *cough* Carlos *cough* Arroyo
So can we have a starting backcourt of Nate and Douglas already?
Also, we could have had Iverson, who wouldn't jack up threes all game long.
Don't know if it's been mentioned, but Jason Williams had a good game also.
Now you're trying to see some positives in this loss by stating that "Oh never mind, charlotte got raped and cavs lost again"? That's just ridiculous!
And saying that the coach doesn't have anything to do with the amount of shots outside the arc is brilliant and ignorant at the same time. It's clear that most of you guys never played basketball and understand **** about the game.
If the players don't play what the coach tell them to do, so why do they have one?
This team lacks leadership on and off the court, period.
And you can state whatever you want tuner, call me an idiot and everything, but D'Antoni is a crappy coach.
Maybe if this team is so terrible and you hate them so much you should just leave. That way those of us that love this team win or lose can avoid all this bull**** negativity and the constant blame game that follows.
Funny how you think others "don't understand the game." Quite an arrogant statement to make...
While the coach can't completely control how many 3pt shots guys take in the flow of the game, he can curb it a bit and demand that they drive more to the basket. The way they were jacking up 3s tells me that they play that way in practice and D'antoni is totally okay with it. That's a cause for concern because this team is not the suns team he coachd that had excellent 3pt shooters.
The team definitely lacks leadership. I mean Dantoni did call plenty of timeouts to get things in order but its really the point guard's job to be a coach on the floor and make sound decisions. A good PG would realize that the team needed to get to the line a bit more and direct guys to post up or drive to the basket himself.
The Knicks didn't even know how to get back in the game at a certain point. They played like it was the last game of the season instead of the first. Way too many 3pt attempts and not enough FT attempts. Virtually no defense in the 2nd half. Playing Chandler at the 2 might be a mistake because he's trying to play the position by being more perimeter oriented which is not his game.
Lastly, Darko should start at center and Lee at PF. All this JJ showcasing is not helping the team.
Until next game, this team sucks.
