There is only one selection in the poll for the best Knicks solution.....
A) Fire Dantoni
I thought the Knicks vs Lakers game exposed all our weakness to the league,
untill I watched the Houston Rockets run a 48 minute "Layup-Line" scoring
close to 70 of their points in the paint.
There is no single-player on the Knicks to blame for this type of mediocre
performance from a team.
In 2008-9 season we used a small-ball 6-man rotation.
In 2009-10 we used a small-ball 7-man rotation.
In 2010-11 we are using a small-ball 8-man rotation.
Homework on competition
The Miami Heat Big-3 are using a 9+man rotation with 11 of the players on
their roster. In the beginning Lebron James did not understand this method
of coaching, after 25 games of wear n tear through traveling playing 4 games
in 6 days (plus injury to Haslem), Lebron James has big respect for this
type of coaching method. Having 11 happy players in the
lockerroom/practice/and ready to put out 100% effort on the court.
The Knicks rebuilding process did not start at the firing of Isiah Thomas,
nor did it start with the two lottery picks in 2008 & 9 (Gallo & Hill).
The Knicks management waited untill the start of the 2010-11 regular season.
The Knicks have a decent 9-man roster of role-players with the addition
of an unstoppable star bigman in Amare, there is no reason why the Knicks
doesn't (d-neg) put 9+ players on the court each game.
After playing 41 games with a record of 22-19 (soon to be 22-21),
how many 30 minute players does the Knicks have on their roster?
4 players- Amare/Chandler/Fields/Felton
How many players deserve 32+ minutes a game?
2 players- Amare/Chandler
How many players deserve from 8 to 28 minutes per game?
7 players- Douglas/Walker/Gallo/S.Williams/AR/Turiaf/Mozgov
In the Knicks 41 game schedule the headcoach already wore-out or
worndown 5 of their top players using them in a 7+man rotation in a
hectic 22 game road schedule having several back to back games.
The funny part of it all is the headcoach wants these players to have
a running offense... LOL
