    Just simply amazing how Douglas is 11-39 the last 4 games (including 4-19 from three-point range), with 6 assists to 5 turnovers... In other words, doing nothing on the court to help NY whatsoever... yet he takes almost as many shots as STAT (despite fact STAT scored like 12 points in the first 5 minutes of the game).

    HOw DOuglas is running around out there in the 4th last night was beyond me.

    YET, Randolph takes an ill-advised shot or two, and he vanishes from the floor never to be heard from again (even though we need his size)?

    Why is it we demanded N8 to be a facillitator, and put him in the doghouse for poor decisions, but yet Douglas isn't held to the same standard?

    Exactly. Right after the PHI game I said D'ant *needed* to put a leash on Douglas, and start figuring out a way to integrate Walker and Fields more into the offense. It's just good sense, but it also speaks to how D'ant *will* be running this team, and given how out team is made up, we need to work within those two realities.

    Look. We have a *pathetic* backcourt. D'ant *craves* strong, dynamic, scoring/facilitating backcourts.

    So it's natural that Douglas would be getting over-trusted, over-relied upon, and over-played, especially since he has flash in the pan type of moments that speak to him being just the type of guard D'ant would love.

    But he can't be treated like some proven baller and just be unleashed and you feel confident in the decision. Which is why Fields or Walker need to be integrated more to take loads off Douglas when he isn't on.

    Or, D'ant needs to not demand such play out of his guard spots, and play more of a Larry Brown type offense.

    Of course, all of these quandaries beg further...why we never made an effort on any level to draft or sign one of the many rich guards we could have had since D'ant came aboard.

    This roster is not for this coach. This coach is not for this city. I know new players need time to gel, but, what I've been witnessing is a team who is either confused with the coach's gameplan or it just doesn't fit this group. If the coach can not adapt to the strengths of the players...he needs to be canned. No one wants to pay over priced tickets to see a crappy performance. Losing to weaker and less talented teams is all on the coach, I'm getting tired of seeing that silly look on his face during the post game interviews. 3-7 (10 ) games. this is a preview to how the season will be if some drastic changes aren't made, SOON. The first few games has always been a peep into the seasons future.

    D'Antoni needs to put a leash on Douglas. Badly. There's no way we'll get anywhere with a player shooting 1-11, that's the fact.

    We should give Randolph some of Douglas's minutes...

    Walker deserves some burn too. His spot minutes make development near impossible. I'm still gagging that Mason Jr was on last night while Billy lingered outside the huddles in time outs.

    Douglas still plays his D, though. That can't be taken from him. He does, however, have ZERO passing game. So many instances where he's been either too late or too tunnel visioned to get the ball to the right place, right time.
