    Its really comedic all the people ****ting on Dantoni like he causes the Knicks to not play D.

    The play of players is up to them. Its not about the coach. The NBA is a PLAYERS league. Coaching isn't that important. People act like he is telling them to ignore defense, when he has been emphasizing it. Its whoever isn't playing defenses fault for not playing defense, and no one elses.

    It's hilarious that you post this idiotic statement after Tuner's post...

    Has nothing to do with coaching plan.

    It has to do with soft players that didn't want to drive and settled for jumpshots.

    Now it is Mike's fault for not discouraging that play. He needs to step up and make a change about playing players who are going to do that, and hopefully correct those tendencies. The problem is that they have freedom to play, which sometimes is bad because the lazy side is one that ends up on the court.

    Mike Dantoni isn't making them shoot 3s, he just isn't stopping them.

    Phoenix shot a lot of threes, but they never settled for them. They had a good interior game with Amare and Nash's penetration.

    We're different because we aren't moving the ball like that. Our only bit of interior O is DLee on a pick and roll. Everyone else goes iso when going into the paint, we don't have the passing continuity.

    I saw it ALOT tonight where guys were jacking shots from the wings with an open man in the corner, guys just settling on that shot when an open teammate was open, one who could have taken a more open 3, or driven.

    Ball movement is our biggest problem on offense.

    We really should have traded Chandler for the 5th pick in the draft. Hill is a joke and Chandler will never "grow testicles"...as Tuner so eloquently put it.

    Yeah, when are people going to stop blaming the coach and realize WE HAVE NO TALENT!! There isn't a single starter on this team. Everybody is a bench player.

    Pretty much.

    Gallo is a Richard Jefferson style 3rd option. And that is it. Everyone else is a bench player.

    i just dont get why wade was given so many open mid range shots

    they barely even ran plays half the time, wade would just move out and jeffries and chandler would BARELY contest

    same thing happened with chandler against superstars last year

    he NEVER steps up to them on the perimeter

    not saying chandler was bad overall but the team defense was half-assed to me, i dont understand how u can play with no adrenaline and lose by so much in the FIRST game of season

    that was horrible and its pathetic how it didnt even seem like the team was amped enough to wanna stay with the heat throughout the game

    the first quarter kept the knicks satisfied

    gallinari shot it well tonight but as a team the saying is true, live by the shot, die by it, so he's gonna have to learn to drive a BIT more

    chandler has developed a VERY NICE spin move, more plays need to be ran so he can use it more

    duhon needs to come off the bench, i actually see him as being the SIXTH man strictly doing pick & rolls with david lee and harrington

    robinson or douglas should've started @ sg tonight because JEFFRIES IS A BUM OVERALL, especially in the regular season

    i actually thought he would only start in preseason and that it wouldn't transfer to regular season

    his awareness on offense is in a ditch and for a fact i know the score wouldve been closer had chandler or gallo started in his place, there is NO WAY he is a better defender than either of them, barely equal so there is no advantage starting him

    robinson sadly was shut down by miami's help defense in the paint otherwise he would've hit some nice bankers

    overall the knicks still live by the shot

    even though they can create many open 3 pointers, certain players like chandler and jeffries SHOULDNT be taking so many, EVER

    reduce chandler 3PT attempts, cut jeffries minutes in HALF, tell chandler to step up on perimeter, run a few plays for gallo in the post where he has an effective up & under, give more minutes to douglas and run more plays for robinson, he is TOO FAST and TOO GOOD of a dribbler to be strictly freestyling, have some kind of set plays for him

    if knicks fix all that they will improve dramatically, im just surprised they had no adrenaline tonight, freaks the shiit outta me

    I mean, this isn't even a lot of threes shot compared to some teams...I remember hearing about some D2 coach where they go up the court and get the best 3 they can get in the first 5 seconds or some ****... And they're like top in the nation....

    Why does this matter? It doesn't. Just an interesting story. D2 ball =/= NBA. Just felt like sharing. Sharing is caring after all.

    The way we play, we look really good when we win and horrible in defeat.

    Yep. Just 1 game. 81 to go. And Charlotte got raped by Boston....A Boston without their obese, slightly retarded child to help rape men in the paint.
