    Default Fields taking over gradually? Gallo needs to GTFO. Douglas in a slump?

    57%fg through 10 games, 10ppg and check this the most impressive stat 0.8 TO's in 28mpg, unheard of for a rookie and he's doing this as a 4th or 5th option just playing the right way, setting screens, spreading out, slashing and he GETS EASY BUCKETS moving without the ball

    i mean he has basically been playing in the zone thus far, no soft **** like gallo

    on to gallo, i never really mentioned how perplexed i was when dantoni praised gallo for his shooting early on when in italy he was a great playmaker. the time has come where it's obviously not working. there is no excuse for shooting 30% through 10 games, and actually it's ALL gallo's fault. IMO he took upon this pure shooter image and he doesn't fit it, yet he continues to shoot bricks. in that case he has extremely low iq if he doesn't realize he needs to pass it off and get better shots through off-ball movement. just because the nba turned out tougher than he expected doesn't mean u can't gradually build by being a team player, so based on that he needs to go no excuses. he has limited game in the nba pure and simple, ron artest would shoot a better % taking those type of shots

    we don't need to waste another season just so next season he can be a slightly better shooter get my drift

    and WTF @ douglas starting to settle more and more for 3's. he's the quickest guy we have and is great around the basket. i don't care how many open 3's he's getting he should only take em when wide open, not those pathetic 3pt handoffs dantoni has em do almost every time WHERE IT"S NOT A CLEAR LOOK

    2 people to blame for this despicable 3-8 start

    DANTONI
    DANTONI'S BROTHER
    GALLI

    they don't do **** for the team, have horrible philosophies and just suck @ coaching and developing players

    bye

    agreed fields is a beats he's a really smart player and that enables him to make up for his inexperience and at facets of the game where he's weaker then other players. he moves well hustles every play( thats why he gets tip ins and putbacks ) and today he was involved in the game the team looked to him more we need to do that more. him and amare have an understanding of each other and they find each other from time to time. he should honestly start to be the 3rd option at this juncture, and by midseason he could be the 2nd he's real consistent and thats what it takes to make that leap consistency, looks like the steal of the draft

    gallo missed key free throws, chandler missed key free throws, felton missed key free throws. STAT had a good game. yea sure he couldve grabbed more boards and i'd like him to yet we won the rebounding 55-41 so that didnt kill us. what killed us tonight was the 3's and bad double teams. it wasnt stats fault he came out and had a good game.

    its a shame but gallo went 2-10, NO EXCUSE for that, ****ing chucker

    i'd deal an unproven player immediately if he did something like that

    gallo is a bigger cancer now that marbury could ever be

    also chandler just needs to leave on his own

    i'd be embarassed if i played like either of them two for a job that pays millions

    i would stop shooting altogether and just play D

    this is a just a huge fail in knicks history

    Notice Gallo being more aggressive in the 4th quarter though? Not just him, the whole team. D'Antoni should make it like there's no three point line and have these guys attack all night long. These guys are young and quick. The team feeds off each other attacking.

    I was already a Fields fan, and man oh man, tonight he was great. It's easy to see he's smart.

    i agree

    the sg/sf spots were wide open before the season. chandler and gallo both shoot 42% and play like playground noobs, this was the best timing

    now if we could just get a team oriented guard in a trade for galli and chandler, i'd even go for gary forbes. guy plays the right way. let the nuggets try figuring out ways to get galli easier shots to make up for his low IQ cuz obviously dicktoni doesnt offer much

    I know D'Antoni's system is predicated on shooting 3's but my goodness we should stop shooting those damn 3's.

    Gallo only took 9 shots that weren't 3's and yet got sent to the line 8 times...you know what that means? If he drives to the basket more...

    Chandler had a great game with the blocks and the good shooting. Also good to see him getting to the line.

    Amar'e only hit 3-8 from the charity stripe. That's terrible. I know all players have bad games, but that's inexcusable.

    Even Felton had a good statline today, 11 assists and 19 points on 13 shots isn't too terrible.

    Fields with a beast night...Fields alone is a reason we shouldn't get rid of Donnie Walsh...EVER. My goodness, he snagged this guy at a point where nobody ever really drafts anybody thinking they're getting something impressive...

    Well at least the one bright spot we have is Fields. This kid has real potential and not the kind that asks you to perform mental gymnastics like Gallo learning how to post or play defense HAH..

    Landry Fields has the potential to just be a solid dude starting at the 2 or 3 position period. If he stays on course he will be a career starter and glue guy as he has no big weaknesses. Dude will produce every night because being from Stanford he has a diversified portfolio including scoring, rebounding, slashing, hustling. Guys like Landry don't have "off" days because he does so many things right its hard for him to do them all wrong one night. While one trick ponies or in this case roosters like Gallo rely way to much on their one thing.

    Not everybody has to be a superstar, and this kid Landry will fit in perfectly as a Shane Battier, Trevor Ariza type impact player who does not need the ball to be effective. For all of Donnie's drafting woes got to give him credit for pulling highway robbery getting Landry at 39.

    I agree. He needs to have his game be what he did in the fourth quarter. He has the skills.

    Best thing about Fields is that you can tell he has great basketball IQ. He's got great positioning so he grabs a ton of boards and he knows how to play without just using sheer athleticism and skill to beat people, because, face it, he's not that athletic and that good of a player skill-wise, but man he knows where to be.

    Fields is deceivingly athletic.

    Yeah, I will have to admit that he's much more athletic than I thought.

    But he's still not a "blow you away" athleticism type of guy like Anthony Randolph or Nate Robinson - he's athletic enough to get to the basket if he drives when he has a good lane, which is good enough.
