    Default I'm beginning to hate Mike Dantoni

    WHY is it that STAT is out at the top of the key and you need a basket to stop a run? Post him up. He'll get you points or the foul. This guy is really getting on my nerves...

    They're obviously defending the "BREAD AND BUTTER" pretty well during that run. You think moving him down to the post might help? Bet most coaches would...

    Its official. I hate this coaches style. They're D-ing up the pick and role and he doesnt have the sense to post up his best player. Knicks will lose this game and it cant be blamed on the players....

    I sort of agree. Why didn't he change our gameplan when it's so obvious that shoots isen't falling. Get to the basket and change it up..but nothing. Same 'ol same 'ol..pull up Js

    You guys are just pointing out Stat's biggest weakness. He doesn't post up.... He's purely a driver and face up jump shooter. He'll throw some quick moves down low, but he hates backing down for some reason. Don't blame it all on the coach. He has to work with what he has. Gallo really could use a post up game as its pretty easy to guard him with a smaller player.

    Same thing goes for Lebon bon and Carmelo. If they posted up more, they'd be absolutely unstoppable. Its a part of the game thats slowly dying

    This is a classic D'Antoni win with a good team.

    I don't like him as a coach either, but he's all we got for now. I also think he's stifling the development of Gallo. I don't know what the hell he tells that dude in practice, just be a statue and don't drive even tho people leave you wide open at the 3 point line and the D is rotating to double Amare. He's quick enough where it could be an easy basket or at least a foul instead he just jacks it up hot or cold hand.....

    terrible offensive bball iq

    Edit for a player with Gallo's tools he is a terrible NBA Offensive Basketball Player.

    STAT is a bigman w a face-up offensive style. MD actually puts him positions to do what he does. Nothing wrong w that. I could see the complaint if STAT played w his back to the basket but..

    Even if STAT gets it in the post he still will face up his man. STAT likes to score quickly, runs the floor and he can shoot. He is the perfect big for this style of O.

    I only want him there if he's goin to pass, other than that he should not be there. But In not sure what the style of this team is yet. I know its run and gun but It wont look like the PHX team.

    I think Gallo is closer to reaching his ceiling than I thought. But i think he should forcus more on rebounding. He granbbed 6 easy ones by just being there. If he made an effort hecan average 10.

    STAT played at the top of the key because he'd turned the ball over 7 times at that stage.

    Opponents can't double team at the top of the key. Too risky on open lane passing with an offensive threat handling the ball.

    STAT moved back to the paint to reenforce his power game once the defence had adjusted to not double teaming him.
