Cute but a swing and a miss! I only pointed out their record from last year because they remain as talented if not better THIS YEAR. Pointing that out is not the same thing as pointing out someones playing time last year which is different this year or pointing out personality conflicts with players that are no longer on the roster. I am not sure why you are trying to play these corny games when you know very well what my points are but ok...do you dude.So in one paragraph you say forget about last year, yet you mention teams that won 50 games last year as a defense to the Knicks losing to them.
Really, like what?Facts are this year the Knicks should've beat Portland and GS with better end game coaching.
Please...this is the easiest talking point of them all to counter since D'ant coached Amare with the Suns and had him playing at a high level. Again, it's all about Felton getting Amare the ball in the right position similar to what Nash could do. You act like D'ant is telling Felton to give Amare the ball at the top of the key so he can run an isolation play. That simply not the case and his years as the Suns headcoach is proof positive.Facts are STAT should not be dribbling the ball 15-20 ft out trying to get to the rim. Bad coaching.
Bad coaching? No, bad shooting. For the most part we are taking open uncontested shots and they are missing. The system works if players can actually start hitting shots because it allows the court to be spread and Amare not to be doubled and tripled every time he gets the ball. Again, this is execution and consistency that SHOULD get better as the players gel.Facts are if you cant shot 33.3% from 3 point range you shouldnt be putting up three's like you shoot it well. Bad coaching.
I guess you don't watch the "Mic Check" segments during every game that clearly shows D'ant coaching defense and discussing specific sets. Either you don't watch games and are talking out of your arse or you willfully ignore whats right in front of your face to perpetuate your hate for a coach you don't like.If this coach truly doesnt go over defensive game plans for every team he should be fired. PERIOD. Defense is 50% of basketball. Always has been always will be.
Exactly what I thought. You admit you have not watched for 5-6 years and now you want to pass judgment after 8 games. Sorry but your sample size is too small to sound remotely credible.I dont have a bias against M D. I havent watched the Knicks in 5-6 years because they've been HORRIBLE. I figured I'd give them a chance this year and what I see I dont like. This guy doesnt utilize the players strengths. He doesnt utilize mismatches. Its all about his system. We dont have the players to play his system each and every game of the year. When everyone is hitting the three its fine. When they arent he needs to make adjustments. Something that he seems incapable of doing...
