    We could establish a little pick and roll to get our expensive one-trick-poney Stoudemire going...what? We don't have a point guard? Daaaaaaaaaamn

    Honestly what is D'Antoni supposed to do with this roster? I'm far from a pro-D'Antoni guy, I couldn't care less about this man, but our roster is a complete joke, in terms of ability, depth and chemistry.
    I've been trying to be fair to mda at least until he ****s up with baron melo stat and ty on the floor together but especially in these last two games it goes so far beyond the lack of pg or a superstar scorer. td and shump are great going to the basket, why not run plays to get them good looks? bibby, our best 3 man, had maybe 2 pick and pops last night. it doesnt take derrick rose to get people open looks. it takes PLAYS.

    Is it we dont have any or we dont play in the post? I think its the latter. MDA once said if management asks him to post up more that's when he stands firm. He feels the same way about post play as he does defense.

    Smile Funny Post

    I recall laughing so much at this post lastseason as our 8 man rotation of
    players decrease to a 7 man rotation in the regular season games.

    This post was so funny because two or three Knicks players had to get
    injured at the same time to force "Damnphony" to take the DNP leash off
    of the bench players....both Gallo & W.Chandler had to be injured to get
    Shawn Williams some playingtime....Turiaf & Stat had to be injured to get
    Mozgov some playingtime.

    The Statistics are corn-ball because of a 42 minute Stat & Felton, 35 minute
    W.Chandler, 30 minute Gallo, Fields, Douglas, and Walker, Shawn, an injury-
    prone Turiaf catching the remainder minutes.
    How many games could these players keep a consistent performance with
    those minutes?
    Did anyone ever think what wouldve happen to Dantoni's Phoenix Suns if
    "Steve Nash" went out with injury for 2 months?

    I hate NBA stat geeks, and this makes me hate D'Antoni even more.
