    Question Mark We're Getting Defensive! Where do we go from here?

    Now with Randolph and Turiaf were added for Lee, is this Donnie bigging up the defense? + Amar'e?

    Better than we had, at least defensively and size.

    It's going to be a hard road going thru the east.

    And... I believe THIS may spell the end for D'Antoni.

    What do you think? Where do we go?



    A few recent remarks regarding the news...lol

    Not sure we can pin our hopes on signing more FA's... dudes are scared. Trade for draft picks?

    so are we! at this stage. And MIA is closer to being good than us right now.
    Will we build a team designed to beat them?

    There's still mad work to do Donnie.

    Definitely. We can't count on Melo, especially not now.

    I just want us to lock up Parker astat and not get raped.

    Don't be desperate like so many expect us too. (ie plz god don't get in a bidding war for Miller)

    Then go to war and as our expiring contracts come into play beef up further.

    Sign Morrow. Sign Tyrus. We'll still have cheese left over too.

    Parker-Douglas
    Walker-Morrow
    Gallo-Azzy (cat we got from GSW)
    Randolph-TyrusT
    Stat-Jordan

    Chandler and Curry for Parker? Add in a 1st if need be?

    We'd still have expiring contracts and cap maneuverability.

    You go to war with that team? Could be super-jacked. Deep, deadly, young, versatile.

    not the end of d'antoni at all... we got men that can run the floor and play defense...i think it's what's necessary for d'antoni to be able to play his system with success. is this 100% already?

    I like that we are getting defensive. Defense wins titles as we saw this year. I mean we have ballers who can score in chunks, but we now we have the defensive backbone to stop teams. I like this, and we get younger and bigger. Win win for me.

    Yeah we are! And it's a beautiful thing! Add to that our flexibility and we're in for a brand new season with a brand new outlook.

    Yup. Randolph and Turiaf will block shots and rebounds. Jordan the 7ft will do the same. Toney Douglas was ACC defensive player of the year. Wilson Chandler and Gallinari blocks shot as well. LeCoward and Wade better respect our defense this season!

    You know, there's something I overlooked.

    LeBron isn't really a great defender.
    Bosh isn't really a great defender.

    Do you guys know what this means?

    STAT is going to ABSOLUTELY BEAST on Miami.

    There is NOBODY on the Heat that can stop STAT. Bosh can't (Bosh is soft, guys). Wade and LeBron can't. STAT is going to OWN their asses and drop 40 points on them.

    Man I'm excited to see that.

    I like the optimism but really I don't know where a lot of it is coming from based on what we actually have in place already.

    Amare is not a good defender.

    Randolph is not very good either and is ridiculously small for a big man.

    Tyrus sure, but we don't have him.

    I mean you all talking about defense wins championships blabla... Can you really see Amare and Randolph locking down Bynum/Gasol/Bosh/KG/Perkins/Dwight?

    I can't.

    I'll believe it when I see it. Randolph looked like he wanted to stay in Portland... leave the Knicks far behind (or maybe just Isiah). Speaking of which, D'Antoni's crew is still there next year right?

    Defense? I'll believe it when I see it.

    I'm not saying were going to win it next year, but I think down the road were building a good foundation the way we should have years ago. Amare is a shot blocker and a good defender. I look at the sign and trade and I think your wrong about this young kid Anthony. He is good and will continue to improve. Are we going to blow people away... probably not. Will we make the playoffs very real chance of that and that is a start.

    UMMM For the Knicks to get defensive they need a defensive coach. At least a coach who understands that defense wins games. The knicks don't have that and won't have that until they Fire D'antoni.
