    I don't want to start a fight with you but it's clear he wasn't calling anyone a bitch. He was saying "bitch bitch bitch" as in all he hears is people bitching...ie complaining. Hardly a reason to call someone a fag...

    I agree though that the Knicks need to stop taking so many 3's.

    Some good stuff here. Lots of good points.

    On one hand, I feel D'ant has respect of a lot of players in the NBA, that his style is appealing... and almost like his coaching this year exhibits a total disregard of outcome (he knows this team stinks).

    I feel like he's going out of his way to play the vets, in a way to send a loud, clear message around the NBA that he's a player's coach.

    On the other hand, I see a coach who couldn't design a play during a TO to save his life. I see a coach with no feel for the game during the game (subbing patterns, no idea when to let momentum go or when to break it).

    When the knicks had a 17 point lead, I saw 4 missed 3s, a few turnovers and ZERO timeouts? Did I miss something? I don't care if it happens too quickly, or not.

    ALSO, that 4th quarter was insane. No professional basektball team should go 12 minutes and hardly attempt a drive to the basket or pass it into the post.

    AND, please.... when Curry is in the game.... The ball should go to him every possession.... why else play him to "showcase" him? He stinks, and when he's on the court the Knics are doomed.... So why not at least force feed him stats?

    I came back, because I just wrapped up my first semester back in school: it's killer, work, school, internship. I finally got to Christmas break.

    Anyway, he's obviously trying to insult the man: first, he goes on his bitch, bitch, bitch rant. Then, he says, "But is it his game plan to shoot 45 3s? Maybe you think that if you're retarded."

    Case closed, the guy's an irredeemable *******.

    And I've been a Pau fan since Memphis, when he was the NBA's best kept secret, carrying bums, like Battier and Mike Miller, to 50 wins in the west. I was begging for Isiah to get him, which I knew would make us a great team again: if Pau did what he did with bums, imagine him with some marginal talent, like Jamal and Marbury. Isiah is rumored to have offered Malik Rose, Nate Robinson and some other bum. He said Curry was "untouchable."

    We didn't get him, and now LA, who did, rules the basketball world. Oh well.

    Once again you describle exactly what's going on. I wish more people would pay close attention and realize your observation. In my opinion this is not up for debate. These are real problems Dantoni has as a head coach.

    I def agree with that part but I think we look so bad after time outs because we don't have a floor general or go to scorer. If we are going to rely on Harrington and Du Du getting it done I would expect similar results regardless of the coach.

    That said, I am beginning to have my doubts about Dant but I am willing to wait till he gets good players who can really run his system before condemning him and his philosophy. It's clear his SSOL system hasn't worked with this group of overpaid misfits. Dant's system is dependent upon versatile shooters who can play many positions and move the ball. The problem is that we don't really have a team, we have a collection! A collection of players all worried about padding their stats so they can get big contracts or move to a team contending for a title.

    P.S. Our team misses an incredible amount of open shots therfore teams give them 3's that they can't turn down...I would laugh if it wasn't so fukin frustrating!

    Dant needs to *demand* the team and its players to play the way he wants. If he can't get the circus under control then he sucks, and not only isn't a great coach, but isn't even a good one if he can't influence them any better than how he has.

    Dant benches N8? Has him ride the bench like a cowgirl. Bench the rest of the bozos if they refuse to learn how to play basketball in a manner that best suits their skills, development, and thus the power of this team and franchise.

    Wait...if he did that Hill and Douglas might have to actually get quality minutes.

    I'm starting to think this dude was a bad hire.you're not supposed to hire a "star" coach when you have no stars.people can say that that he does have enough of "his" players on that team, but imo it still wouldn't matter.we won't win a championship with him at the helm, until he changes his system.

    maybe donnie should have hired tom thiboudeax.

    you just made the point, he is a star coach, we want to bring in STARS next season. these starts have an affinity for coach dantoni, and donnie walsh is hoping they'll choose new york. bringing in dantoni was solely for 2010, dont forget that all management cares about is 2010.

    lol at anybody who believes that bull****.if any stars leave there respective teams next season, its because they want to leave.d'antoni will have jack **** to do with it.olympics or not."players" want to play for him because thy'll get buckets.guys like lebron and wade are superstars all ready, padding their stats, which is what mike's system does, won't mean **** to them.winning does.and you win championships with defense.

    So is Phil Jackson who only coached superstars and arguably the 2 best players of all the time. No coach can do a lot better with this bunch. Maybe few more wins yes but no one can make this team a playoff contender.

    And you know why? Because we don't have a big star. We have some above average players (Lee, Harrington, Hughes) couple young solid players(Chandler, Douglas) a potential future star (Gallinari) whos about 2-3 years away (if he ever gets there) to polish his game and reach some of his potential and a big man prospect (Hill) which can be a hit or a miss. Than we have the dirt of the NBA (Duhon, Jeffries, Curry).

    One more thing, unlike Dantoni, Phil Jackson have never nor he will ever coach a team without a star.

    why are you trying to make a point, i already made? i just said he's a star coach, and we have NO stars.that's why it was a bad hire.

    phil jackson was hired after those teams had stars.
