This is Nate's game. Love it or hate it, this is the player he is. If it hasn't changed by now, it most likely never will. The thing is when he's warm, like tonight, and the shots drop, no one complains.
Nate signifies this entire team, really. Jekyll and Hide. Never know what you're gonna get on a nightly basis.
LOL, I think the only person not cheering on The Knicks bench was Larry Hughes! I think he realizes that if Nate is doing what he supposed to, then he is out of the rotation
Great Game for Nate! I loved his post game interview, he even thanked Dantoni, lets hope this is the begining of a New Nate!
But lets not forget the play of my man Willson Chandler, serious Double Double!
If we can just get this team all playing well together, then we should be a lock to make the playoffs....but I guess that is true for any team in the league.
I actually will take this win over a win vs. NJ -ofcourse you want to win both- but this win could be a real confidence builder moving forward....after all last time we beat Atlanta we won our next four, so doing that again brings us closer to .500
What are you talking about? I said he failed as a coach, which he did. He left Crawford in, who shot 2/12, keeping us in the game. Meanwhile he refused to double Nate or bring in a quick guard like Teague to defend Nate. He left Marvin Williams on him, who is nowhere near quick enough to defend him when he drives.
where can i find the post game interviews? Checked youtube and knicks.com and it's not up yet. any suggestions?
"This is where I want to be. And I hope that I can stay. ... It's a new year, a new start, and I'm not looking back." - Nate Robinson

and great game couldnt have asked for a better new years gift than a knicks win. nate was great, just like clyde said imagine if this game was in the garden? woulda been nasty. but i hate to hate but i know nate will prob have a few more hot games before he goes on his cold streak, we just gotta ride his hot hand to a few more W's. off night by lee, gallo, and harrington so nate picked the perfect time to go crazy! i just hope this team can win consistently with or without nate, it doesnt matter to me. i just want victories. and btw i think our man bigc should be working on that nate mixtape, i cant wait to see it!
I've been hard on N8 lately (b/c I know he has the talent and I've been extremely disappointed in his play/attitude prior to the benching). I think D'ant took it a little too far, but in my opinion N8 put himself in this position so he's had to deal with the consequences....
While I wont eat crow just yet.... I have to commend N8 Robinson. He's been professional since he was banished to the pine. He refused to pout (I don't think he could ever be down- HECK, thye should name new anti-depressent pills N8s)....
Nate was a class act througout, and boy did he stay ready and prepared! He was simply breathtaking tonight.
While most will point to his points, and clutchness (although the 3 missed free throws late got to me).... I'm so proud of his 8 assists and his points in the paint.
BUT, this sort of game just reminds me why we get on N8 so often.... He has the ability to make plays, get to the glass, draw fouls. NO WAY a guy like N8 should have such few free throw attempts.
We all know Robinson wont shout 18-24 on most nights. BUt remember.... N8 was RED hot today, and he still worked for his points. TAKE IT TO THE RIM. I love it. He also can average 4-6 assists per game.
D'ant should reward N8 RIGHT NOW. Make him the starting PG and let him run the show. He's earned it. I'll start to cook my crow and happily it!
I love what N8 did after the game- He even thanks coach for benching him (humbling him)....
“This is where I want to be. And I hope that I can stay. … It’s a new year, a new start, and I’m not looking back.”
I LOVE IT. Sorry for riding you N8. Let's hope you've turned the corner and will focus on being the great player your talent suggests you can become.
Dantoni just has to smarten up now. I get what he's tryin to say about them needing offense! I mean look, the Knicks did hold opponents below 100 in those wins, but they themselves weren't scoring much (win or lose). Nate provides that scoring definitely! Now just play aggressive defense like we have been recently and bring in offense from Nate and we should be winning many games.
Nate, Gallo, Lee, Harrington, Chandler = Dangerous OFFENSE!! So underrated.
Jeffries, Gallo, Chandler always get a block or two per game (OK DEFENSE)!
Seriously, we should be 6-7 playoff team in the EAST!
As I said on numerous threads before: we all don't know what is going on behind closed doors. Whatever it was that made D'Antoni put Nate into the doghouse, they (or rather Nate) sorted it out, which is good.
Although I think that D'Antoni's sbstitution patterns seem bizarre at times (I think he is trying hard not to be predictable), but I like other things he does.
Benching Nate for 14 games is telling the others that he will do everything to maintain team discipline, that creating the frame of mind of a winning team is more important than individual players (meaning that talent won't secure you burn). I guess that D'Antoni was really happy that they actually did a good job without Nate, which is something nobody could expect.
As Ewing said on the page of this thread:
Dear closet fag.lmao Benching Nate Robinson for 14 consecutive games was a brilliant move by Dyke Manphony? The Knicks would probably be in 7th or 8th place, had D'Anphony used Robinson from the get go.
Consistent assumptions, copy and pastes and homo erogenous wording won't make you popular amongst your ko.com idols. If it does, they're as sad as you are.
You seem to prefer your online team rather than the NY ball team. There really is no reason for you to post here. You're the retarded child of team starbury that craves for conflict now your ass lord is gone.
Kind regards, Actual Knick Fan.
Great to get the win tonight. Not a N8 fan but congrats to him. It was a chucker's 40, but it's a push toward 8th seed so that's golden.
What makes you "an actual knick fan," the fact that you unquestionably attach your mouth and anus to D'Antoni's every decision and utterance?
Because ABCD questions D'Antoni's acts against Robinson, he's not a real Knick fan? Well, I guess having a backbone made of jelly is a prerequisite to being a Knick fan, these days.
Fact is, hoe, you're sorely mistaken, if you think a fan not supporting a team's coach or GM means he or she is not a real fan of that team. If that was the case, anyone who was against Isiah, e.g, many of you, would have not been "actual" Knick fans for the years Isiah ruled.
Once again, CrazyKate, you lose.
