i agree with pierce
If it wasn't for a complete overhaul of his team (kind of like what Donnie is trying to do) he would still be on the worst team in the league. Remember? The Celtics were the worst team in the league 3 years ago. And everybody was calling for Doc Rivers to be fired.
Get your facts straight.
I recall that F....ing losing culture Celtics team blowing us out in our home opener. Not to mention going to the Eastern Conference Finals with the Nets.
And facts is ......
it wasnt Doc Rivers job that was in jeopardy, it was bum President Danny Ainge job that was open for hire, untill ex-teammate Keven Mchale bailed him out.
The number one statement Paul Pierce made were "we (Knicks) are still a losing atmosphere organization", more so now then before.
That statement stands out the most in our hunt for a few decent FA this summer. Making it obvious that the FA market look at getting "paid" in New York, not being a part of a winning organization. Read greedy Boozer comments on becoming a Knick.
We gave up multiple first round picks b/c headcoach Damntoni is more personal than Isiah Thomas and Larry Brown put together. com'on I wouldve rather traded a no-playing Eddy Curry for a no-playing Mobley for two seasons.
Zbo (20-10) expiring contract right now is 100 times better to have on the trading-block this big 2010 FA summer than a 2 season nonplaying Eddy Curry.
Yeah, lets get the FACTS straight...
Players!! The talent surrounding Paul Pierce!! Doc Rivers was there the whole time. So, in order to remove a losing culture, you bring in winning players.
The similarities between Boston 3 years ago and the current Knicks are undeniable. Keep spewing your hypocrisy. It only makes you look more foolish.
You do realize that when you put something in quotes like you did here:
You need to be held accountable for the crap you spread.
Yes, the Knicks are a losing team. So were the Celtics. That's my point. He should keep his mouth shut about the subject.
You are saying we traded away our draft picks because D'Antoni is personal??
Honestly man, do you really believe this? Do you ever stop and think before you post? Do you ever read the crap you type?
We traded the draft picks to get rid of Jeffries, to get more cap space. If it was personal, why trade Jeffries? D'Antoni loved Jeffries.
One last question. Are you retarded?
