Don't see a game thread anywhere.
Sergio Rodriguez is blowing by Nate as if he was in a wheel chair.
Duhon is just the WORST player I've ever seen. It is beyond me why he gets to play at all.
And we have absolutely no inside presence whatsoever. That is the reason they have all their points. And in general is the way most teams beat us. We need some inside presence very badly. Someone... Anyone... Just put Curry in to piss off everyone, seriously it would be better than the defense we have right now.
And give the freaking ball to gallinari more... In fact, design every play so the main option is a shot from Gallo. at least if we are chucking up our daily routine, let it come from someone who will score half of them.
Not a single player is playing well this game...
The two guys scoring efficiently have most likely given up more points on defense.
chandler and duhon get good minutes i dont get it. these guys wouldnt start in my pick up games @ the gym. chandler is a bum with NO MOVES and HORRIBLY INEFFICIENT shot, at least duhon has some kind of **** finesse.
mike breen reiterated dantoni's reason for it, something like "douglas still hasnt ASSUMED a starting role, plus duhon's been working very hard and i still think he's the main guy for the position." what a crock of ****.
shooting 24% after 15 games...slow as ****...HORRIBLE soft defense...very turnover prone.....let me know if i've missed anything.
it's just depressing knowing dantoni GLORIFIES duhon's dishing at like what 5-6 APG's? like it's so hard to make them pick & roll passes. clearly galinari and lee do it just as well.
yet robinson gets blamed for something as small as immaturity off the court when realistically he WILL get guys open shots(harrington was off like usual), without the need of a pick ALL THE TIME unlike duhon, and EVERY shot he takes is a good one.
its amazing because u will see all types of shots from robinson. he drives half the time, takes many mid range shots, good 3's, yet this **** is still happening
I DONT GET IT WHATS SO HARD TO FIGURE OUT HERE AS A COACH?
im convinced these guys are RETARDED. there is NO IMPROVEMENT, no allowing of PLAYER DEVELOPMENT.
freakin hell robinson has been coming off the bench for years, he's one of the most athletic AND skilled guards in the entire game
YET FREAKIN ROOKIES ON OTHER TEAMS GET MORE TIME
OH NO HE'S IMMATURE!!!
BUNCH OF IDIOT HORSEBACKS ON HERE
robinson wouldve been top 5 pg's in league had a NORMAL coach started him YEARS AGO
worst sports fail EVER
This team sucks...when is Mike D going to realize our starters suck as a group. Change the starting lineup.
I hope we get worse so that Mike D gets fired.
I can't stand these substitutions anymore.
we are 3-12...if we go on a 10 game losing streak, I dont know. Mike D will start hearing chants at the Garden to be fired and Donnie might have to make a move. I don't think it ultimately will happen but it can if we get any worse.
David Lee scored 25 points and still has an overall -5 rating
Also baffling is that for the 13:12 that Larry Hughes was in the game he put up a -21 rating (meaning that the deficit widened by 21 points in favor of the Knicks when Hughes was in the game). That's sad.
Duhon went 1-7 from beyond the arc. He shouldn't be playing.
Hughes' atrocious rating speaks for itself
David Lee had a good offensive game but man he let the Kings' frontcourt curbstomp him.
Gallinari only had nine shots in 29:58. He should probably be taking more shots. Off night for him though, he's a rookie and it happens. Three turnovers is a problem, though.
No minutes for Wilson Chandler? I didn't see most of the game, so I don't know why.
Nate played pretty well, I can't really fault him this game. He still never plays defense, but at least he gave us some semblance of an offensive game.
Al Harrington needs to stop chucking. 2-7 from beyond the arc? 6-19 from the field? That's chucking if I've ever seen it
Toney Douglas had a bad game (then again I'd have a bad game if I only played like 10 minutes every other game), and Jordan Hill didn't really do much but he did have four rebounds and two blocked shots in nine minutes of playing time which is pretty good. One reason why I was happy we drafted Jordan Hill was that the scouting reports indicated him to be a pretty good defender, and it's good to see him blocking some shots which is something that we really lack.
Overall...typical 2009 Knicks.
The next games we have are againts @ Denver, vs Orlando, vs Phoenix, @ Orl, @ ATL, vs NJ, vs Portland, @ New Orleans.We are currently 3-12, after these eight games we might be 4-19 record. We then have an easier schedule by playing Clippers, Charlotte, NJ and we might get some victories. Damn the Suns have the worst luck by trading that pick years ago, they also lost that Hawks pick which was Top 3 protected in the 2007 draft (Joe Johnson deal). We got to do something we can't hand the Jazz a Top 2 pick in this season's draft, that would be 2 times in 4 years.
4-19... damn i just hope we end up winning more than 23 games
The Knicks 15th game was to scary to write anything about.
David Stern is probably thinking the Knicks are not a Proffessional Team.
So far coach Frank and coach Dantoni showed to be the worst coaches in the NBA....far worst than Byron Scott.
The most funny part of the Knicks is they have practically all the players whom helped the team win 32 games last season, with only two players added to their rotation (Hughes & Gallo). Go figure......
How many different starting line-ups had we made in 15 games?
How many ending contract veteran players do we have on our roster? in our rotation? and in our starting line-up?
Having the same players as last season.....headed for a 4-20 record says what???
I actually believe the day the Nets FIRE coach Frank will be when the team goes on a win-streak.....remind anyone on how coach Frank got his job...
This team is going to win about 18-23 games. Let's just face it. It's going to be very difficult to sit back and watch them hand Utah a top five selection.
Then again, we would draft some chump anyway, and Walsh doesn't want to have to pay anyone next year. I think he thinks he can have Lebron, Chandler, Hill, Douglas, Gallo, Curry, Jeffries, Landry, 2 second round picks, and Patrick Ewing Jr as a roster in 2010.
