    Default Tony Douglas

    Cannot run the point. I know we all know this, but it's atrocious what happens when Raymond sits. Douglas is a horror show at pg.

    Douglas was a draft steal and has the potential to be a good trading asset.

    Steal as far as what? He is streaky at best, good defender, but that's it. Fields is a steal.

    SG trapped in a PG body.

    Exactly. Not a terrible player, but for the role that we have him playing, he's simply not good enough.

    Knicks4lyfe. A classic example of a reactionary dullard.

    Recently, I've read posts in which all you do is dishonourably downplay the talents of individual Knicks, whilst praising the unknown (as you do in the hangout section) by chorusing the Anthony trade.

    This is a crap fan.

    Biggest prob for Douglas is how weak our 2 slot is, in regards to a more pure sg...let alone one with pg-esque passing.

    If we had Iggy, Joe Johnson, or most any other quality 2 to put in when Douglas is...His flaws would be blunted considerably.

    Tony douglas is a good point gaurd? Yes or no? The consesus is no. his court vision is putrid, his shot selection is awful half the time, and he is a sg trapped in a pg's body. He is at best a C player. Period. That has nothing to do with dishonor, everything to do with calling it what it is.

    And leave the hangout section to the big leagues.

    I think Felton's play is more of a problem than TD's. Can he hit a jumpshot? Finish in the paint?

    I'm starting to think more and more that his good shooting @ the beginning of the year was fools gold.

    While Felton has appeared to have died, at least the offense has flow when he runs it. Douglas is terrible at the pnr, and cannot make the simplest of passes. Many times he had wide open players he missed due to lack of court vision. Yes, he shot well today, but chalk that up to a good night.

    And Barrea killed him.

    Douglas has been frustrating a bunch of times, but he's also was/been hurt a while this season.

    He's not a PG. Congratulations! Let's make a call out thread about it. All season he's played some valuable minutes for this squad. All season.

    If he's not an offensive success out of position, then let's heckle the little heathen. He plays some very solid defence against bigger players since entering the line up last season. He single handedly thwarted both Wall and Arenas when they came to town, was mentioned in a Derrick Rose interview about his tough D, has been praised by D'Antoni for the same reason and so on.

    Bottom line, no, he's not a PG, so what's the point of venting? Reactionary blame game. Boo f'ing hoo.

    *There's nothing big league about you getting jacked by LJ4ptplay in the Hangout forum.

    Wall and arenas? Yet Barrea roasts him? It's easy to to stay in front of a player who cannot shoot (Wall, Rose) Arenas was not even trying in Washington. Try again.

    I'm not in the business for giving pats on the backs. It's about results now. Once we get a back up pg who can actually run the show, where will Douglas' minutes go to? He won't play much. Bet that.

    And as a fan, it's my right to as you put it, play the "reactionary blame game" No different than if someone else wanted to sing his praises. It is there right as a fan to do so. Where do you get off criticizing my right to do so? Since you want to be the conscience of this section?

    And I meant big leagues as far as measure of importance. The Knicks, are entertainment, what goes on in the hangout section is mostly about real life, real events. Does not belong in this section at all. If you wanna add anything of real relevance, I suggest you post there. Otherwise, remain The spliffstar to Lj4ptplay's Busta.

    In front of a player that can't shoot yet has/have insane handles? Is/are taller and heavier than Toney? Try again.

    Bet's on. Again, you're dabbling in the imaginary. Bet that! Who will you blame next?

    Yes, but your enclosed form of thought focuses on the only thing you can conceive (as in the Hangout forum) - in this case, blaming an individual that's a member of a team with narrow observations, focusing on one side of a multi sided team game.

    You know dick about basketball.

    But since he can't shoot, Tony can go under the screens, which he could not do to a player who can. Evidenced by tonight's beat down. And what's his excuse tonight? Barrea is a little man. Tony is bigger, faster, and stronger. Try again. He's overrated cuz he is a Knick. If he was on any other team, you would see him for the C player he is, homer.

    If you refer to God as imaginary, you're hopeless. Unless you are refering to the missing link. Either way, hopeless. Back to basketball.

    Our defensively challenged coach has the propensity to put offense before defense. Which is why I know if he finds a pg who can run it efficiently enough to blow Ray, Douglas is the odd man out. He'll play, but in a reduced roll. Way reduced. Bill Walker minutes. And attribute this guess to D'antoni's tendancies.

    I know that Carmelo Anothony is better than everyone on our team, and if we add him, no matter who we lose, we are better. I also know that Douglas is just biding his time as backup pg cuz there is no better option. I know we need a big, or STAT will die slow, like Ewing did. No one blamed Tony for this loss, Raymond sucked today too. So did a lot of players. But I attribute Ray's fall to a ton of minutes, due to the fact that Douglas can't make simple passes, therefore the coach is playing him too many minutes. Unlike Mozgov and Randolph, D'antoni IS playing Douglas. So him not performing is not due to trade rumors, or lack of playing time. Point blank, he is underwhelming. Not a pg. Not his fault, but I'm still calling it like it is.
