Ah, I feel better now. The nightly Jared Jeffires blows an uncontested, point blank layup- that leads to a fastbreak and subsequent run for the other team.
LOL! Walsh actually thinks someone will trade for JJ. That just shows you how clueless our GM is.
You might be right SLY1984. Seriously i'm trying to figure out why D'Antoni does things, but his decisions really doesn't make sense! Everytime you think ok he has something here then he goes and messes it up!
28-14 points in the paint. Lee-JJ aint laying any defense. Would it hurt to bring in Darko or Hill.
Lee and JJ (and the Knicks) have ZERO offensive rebounds so far in the 1st half. ZERO. That's just hustle folks. Get someone in who cares and is willing to break a sweat.
If Walsh thinks there's even a remote possibility if this happening, then I really question his ability to do anything. He cannot be that clueless.
The sad part of all this, which nobody will address, is D'ant cannot get this team to even try. I can handle losing, I just cannot watch millionaires pout and mope around the floor.
Nice Buzzer-Beater from half court ! Only down 9, let's refocus and get back in this game and WIN !
Watching duhon play makes me want to punch d'antoni in his vagina. Play Nate Already!!!
To be fair to N8 though.... We should just release him so he can take his act elsewhere.
Well said Mafra. I love Nate's abilities but hate his antics. This kid is so talented and he's just wasting it. Why can't you just score and not celebrate and get back on defense? Ok i understand if it was a strong dunk or a game changing bucket but every shot come on. I wish Nate really learns from this benching and starts to take his job seriously. I would love for him to stay because he is that offensive threat that any team would love coming off their bench.
I was watching that Orlando game and from what I remember Nate wasn't flaunting right away, it was after his 4th or 5th consecutive score that he pounded his chest, and yeah it hurt us on D that play but really, where were the other 4 players on the team in that 4th quarter while Nate was trying to get us back into it?
TBH I think this whole thing has got way out of whack, Nate is who he is, he's not an all star guard and never will be but when utilized correctly he's a deadly offensive weapon and a great energy guy. People seem to be forgetting his role and assuming he should be doing more.
Yeah we won four games after he got benched, woop-de-doo... We beat the Nets (worst team in the NBA), Portland (playing badly and just lost their C), Hawks (Josh Smith ejected) and Suns who are playing above their level anyway.
With curry's **** skills in full effect the first half, I wouldn't mind Nate the Great playing Center. Didn't Nate get two blocks the last game he played???
