    Indeed good coaches know how to acclimate their styles to the player movement.

    Pat Riley coached the Showtime Lakers to great success using a fast-paced system that involved having a great distributor in Magic, but when he came to the Knicks he was able to implement tough, defensive basketball to great success (if not for that ****er Michael Jordan) because he didn't have the same roster that he did over in LA.

    Mike D hasn't done that...but at the same time, it's not like any of our players would be elite defenders in a half-court system either. We have players that are suited to his style, and I think D'Antoni will eventually be able to work AR and Mozgov into his rotation - you have to remember that they're both young and incredibly raw, especially Mozgov, so there will be difficulty in getting them minutes at first, especially with other players they've never played with before.

    But D'Antoni eventually relented and gave Nate some minutes, now especially with Gallo hurt you'd think he'll be giving AR some time too especially due to his length and athleticism

    While I'm sure that plays a role in it....Popovich still had make the assessment of his roster and chose to change the team's DNA based on what he had....that has very little to do with "veteran leadership"...that's the coach.....coaching.

    But meanwhile Mike D can't figure out a way to implement AR or Moz into the game to put them in positions to have success? And that's ok because of what exactly?
    If AR and T moz was on the spurs.. they would be playin meaningful minutes...that the difference with coaches like O'antoni and your Pop or Sloan or Jackson..

    i will take it even further..

    nobodies give Nate Mcmillian credit for anything.. he got a constantly injured staff and his franchise playin is down and they still find a way to win.. now thats coaching... he should be in the discussion for coach of the year..

    side note... Wesley Mathews... who i said would be a good pickup for the knicks in the offseason and most of you laughed at it...is a major reason why they r good.

    I agree Matthews would've been good for us but I dunno if we would've gotten Raymond Felton had we signed Matthews...which would've sucked, Matthews is good, but Felton is currently playing at an all-star level

    Yep, you're right on all accounts. Not only did the Blazers go out and get Matthews but also once Roy went out for an extended time what did Nate tell Aldridge? "Get your skinny ass in the paint and use your size and athletecism" now I don't know if he said it in those words...but a dude who spent the better part of 3 years in the NBA shooting jumpshots suddenly wakes up one morning and decides to be a low post presence...in the middle of the season...right after a vital part of their offense gets subtracted due to knee issues?

    This also coming from a team that miraculously made the playoffs last year after being the 2nd most injured team in the league? And Mike D'Antoni...a professional basketball head coach, can't find a way to use his young bigs in the game that would benefit the team? Especially when said team is giving up so many second chance points because of our lack of size and rebounding up front? Really?

    Dude is getting out coached every which way, sometimes I think we win despite Michael D'Antoni.

    Lol@ you bumping these abortions of threads, a month later, calling people out for not reading. Damn son. You should take your sensai's advice: comprehend.

    Nobody really reads your **** except for the people smacking you down, and maybe Red since you his minion. He has to pat you on the ass time to time, like a general on a horse to a foot soldier who's going to take one for the team.

    1 Sorry to say it but, .Mogov and Randolph is not enough to hold off Dwight! Mozgov is not a good rebounder (horrible hands) which is where we got killed tonight more than anything, so yes they do represent 12 fouls but on the offensive side of the ball they are both limited, so do you stall the offense just for 12 fouls to use on Dwight who did not shoot the ball great anyways (more on that later)

    2. Why did we not go to a Hack A Shaq? Because it was the fluidity of the game that allowed the Knicks to come back! Watch the game again, as The Knicks mounted a comeback in the 4th the scoring came on a lot of scores off of us grabbing the board, running up the court, and having the Magic try to scramble to shooters. Plus Orlando was shooting horribly from the feild in the 4th, they were shooting themselves out of the game, so there is no need for a Hack A Shaq!

    3.Dwight shot 8-19 from the field! This is considred a success on a player who shoots about .600 for the season! What more can you ask for when you are talking about a player of Dwight's skill.


    I get being upset about the loss and I guess there always needs to be a "fall guy" so I guess in your opion it is Mike and you're right about us needing a quality 7 ft player out there tonight being the reason why we loss, but the real problem is that we don't have one, not that Mike D did not play him! I mean another reason why we loss the game was our horrible shooting from 3, would Roger Mason have solved that!?

    sitting Mozgov and Randolph is not like sitting David Robinson and Duncan!
    check.....
