Yes, this 5 game winning streak over lottery teams has me convinced.
Yes, but the Knicks will have to keep winning, before I join the D'Antoni bandwagon.
No, he sucks. He will be thrown in a dumpster(fired), after this year.
I don't know.
is it any wonder STUD is hurt and the last few weeks of the season his numbers diminished? Laundry has Folded and Tony Chill's numbers have gone down significantly as well.
Antoni had this coming to him, we've seen it before with Duhound, he runs his players into the ground with the short rotation, and by the end of the season, they're spent. His substitutions suck ass. why is Masonite Jr getting run in the playoffs? why is Skywalker in the game when he's 0-11?
I commended Pringles for the 7 game winning streak, as his "playoff auditions" included an open roster where everyone got run, especially Sheldon "Tinyface" Williams; the entire team played defense, and even without STUD, the Knicks were healthy, running and gunning.
Now, Girafferies represents the face of the Knicks defensively, and even though he has played his best ball of the season in the playoffs, he still looks lost half the time, and canNOT go to the hoop with gusto (memories of Charles Smith each and every time he touches the ball). He's got horrible hands, and basically lost game 2 with his wishy-washy last second decision-making. this all falls on Antoni for playing Girafferies so much and in critical situations. I'd much rather see Tinyface in the game, especially if Tuffiaf is hurting. but NOOOOOOO. doghouse for tinyface for the playoffs.
Melo was fantastic in game 2, but playing him the entire game so he's so beat at the end he can't cover Delonte West on a kickout to the backcourt? Game over! whose fault, Antoni for not recognizing such a play was possible, or the fact that Melo is too tired to respond to a smart play. Everyone says Doc Rivers was smart for calling that play, but who's calling Antoni an idiot for not seeing it coming? Not JPZ, that's for sure!
If Antoni is fired, I will be very happy, despite getting our asses roasted in game 3, and losing very winnable games in Celtdickland. This coach's attitude sucks beyond any New York coach we've ever had, he thinks he's always right, he's not humble, his doghouse is ridiculous, and he overplays his best players to the point we're seeing now. There is no team defense in the Antoni world, it's just players playing hard, but falling flat in the end.
As Clyde says, No "D", No "W".
FIRE THE F*CK!
He should be fired after this upcoming sweep
4 years later, Antoni still sucks.
I hope Dolan figure this out.
