sorry for not makin the thread guys
Chris Duhon vs Celtdicks
47 minutes - 3 points
what is this BS?
N8 >>>> Duhon
Douglas >> Duhon
Allen Iverson could have done a whole lot better than Duhon has done,
but NO, he would have taken minutes away from our young guys.
Tony Douglas - 6 minutes
Jordan Hll - DNP
Darko - DNP
Knicks have 1 foul to give in final 9 seconds and don't use it.
another brilliant defensive scheme by the Pringle.
chalk up another loss to No-D'Antoni.
PS: Brandon Jennings last game: 31 minutes, 26 points
I am in agreement with CoolClyde. Why does Duhon get 47 minutes? His field goal percentage is is 24.2%. He averages just over 6 assists a game and he is certainly not as good as Douglas defensively.
Is it possible that one of the reasons Jennings was not selected over Hill was the belief that Duhon is the point guard going forward? Hill can not get off the bench on one of the worst teams in the NBA and yet the Knicks took him with the 8th pick.
Is Darko so bad that he can not get into the game at all? What has Douglas done to be limited to 6 minutes?
Danilo is not aggressive enough althugh he did have one nice driving dunk. Once again he failed to hustle for a loose ball at which point d'Antoni took him out of the game.
Are the Knicks showcasing some of these expiring contract players?
Can someone explain to me why Nate Robinson is getting no minutes down the stretch??!?!?!?! Does anyone else not see this as insulting and a huge smack in the face to him? I have a feeling this game wouldn't have even went in to OT if nate was on the floor over that garbage Duhon.. please someone explain to me the real logic behind this... thank you.
gallo's lack or aggresiveness is starting to piss me off. hes my favorite player, and will continue to be no matter what. i just want to see him succeed. i watched the whole game, and for the first time in a while, i thought duhorrible, and the rest of the knicks found gallo. problem is most of the time he just passed the ball right back! wtf??? i dont want him shooting to many shots, but when he had ray allen (height advantage over him), or brian scalabrine (WHOOOO???) couldnt he have attacked the basket and created something?
other opinions from the game
-nate looked pretty good, finally glimpses of the nate from last year (was it bcuz will ferrell was in the building lol?)
-jordan hill has done a great job this season keeping the bench warm. its games like these that make me jump for joy that we didnt draft b-jennings or ty lawson
-talking about passing on those two nice pg's, i thought chris duhorrible did an excellent job of showing why everyone on this forum (except jpz of course) hates him. he runs around the paint, with NO agresiveness to score. i could sense the frustration clyde had when talking about him. im sure lebron, wade and bosh cant wait to have a pg like him as their starter
-i liked watching eddy curry today. hes obv rusty, but he overpowered rasheed. made him look like a lil baby. mandick jerkins cudnt even get good position on him on the post. eddy just missed two hooks he usually makes. and EVERYONE on this forum has to hate rajon john doe, ****in idiot. i loved seeing curry dismantle him. he showed grit, toughness, and PASSION. those were antonyms when ud describe him two years ago. and even 3 years ago when he had his breakout year he only cared if he was scoring big. now (and hopefully it'll continue) he is animated whether the knicks are looking for him or not
Nate Robinson doesn't play in crunch time because he is the BIGGEST defensive liability we have. He makes DLee seem like a solid defender.
**** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** **** ****
Duhon is horrible. No way he should play 47 minutes in a week. We should have won this game, and the fact this team only competes when they want to makes me even sicker- b/c obviously they don't try 60% of the time.
BOS didn;t want to play and got nothing from Garnett-Allen-Wallace and we still can't beat them.
Maybe D'antoni doesn't want to hurt mike krzyzewski's (Duke Coach) feelings by benching the idiot of Duhon. If we lose the next three games we will be at 3-13 with Duhon at the point. How long will the coach continue to sit Darko, Hill, Douglas? There is too much stupidity going on with the Knicks right now and someway some of the players have to go starting with Duhon and Jeffries. Buy them out, release them, trade them, I don't give a crap, do something Walsh...
Duhon is the worst starting point guard in the NBA, no doubt.
There doesn`t seem to be any sense of planning in the Knicks. Allen Iverson would contribute more to the Knicks than Duhon if he only had one leg. We didn`t get Iverson because he would have hurt the development of our young players. That makes no sense when Hill, Darko and Douglas are sitting on the bench.
Where was Douglas? He has played well since he came into the team yet he has to sit there watching Duhon run around like a chicken without a head.
I`d love to see David Lee play power forward and have either Darko or Eddy as centre. Lee has a sweet shot and would be more productive I think as PF. With some low post presence it would open the floor for him a little more. Put a centre in there and let Lee play his strongest position.
Play Darko, why pay someone over 7 million and not play him?Originally Posted by pat;10456 However, it does not make sense to criticise a coach based on whom he is (not playing).
