Hey Dantoni. Take the starters out of the game. What a jerk
We still would of lost anyways, I'm not disputing that. I don't even think Melo can save this team because it all boils down to coaching and our coach is garbage. Coaches mean everything to a team. You can have all the stars in the world but if your coach sucks like D'Antoni, you're going to have a hard time winning.
Here's an example: Look at St. Johns... They've are playing awesome now and it's all because of the new coach. Steve Lavin took the same EXACT players that sucked the last 3 years and made them relevant and good enough to compete and beat the best teams in NCAA. That is coaching. D'Antoni is a joke.
The Knicks, for once, outrebounded a team, and still lost.
Goodness, can we ever catch a break?
NY is supposed to be tough. D'Antoni's bad coaching and no defense disrespects the Garden, organization and fan base in my opinion and I hate that the rest of the country looks at our team as a joke...I can't stand it. FIRE D'ANTONI, HIRE A DEFENSIVE MINDED COACH, GET MELO AT ALL COSTS!!!!
I've maintained a balanced opinion of this team and its woes, avoiding pointing fingers etc. I know that we were basically destined for a .500 season, but the debacle has to end.
This system, this coach, is heralded for offensive brilliance.
Where is it?
I've played, watched, written about basketball for nigh on 2 decades now, and would love for some of the following: KBlack, tiger0330, TR1LL1ON, ronornanoroanaonaianana, mafra, ISayyUggh, SSJ4wingzero or anyone that cares to, to tell me what is so genius about this offence.
Someone distract me from pulling my ****ing hair out.
It really has become painful.
knicks just have so many holes as a team that is showing in the past 2-3 weeks.If we have a bad shooting night then we cant win.Our perimeter defense has no discipline and cant contain anyone.No low post defender that can go one on one with elite bigs.No other consistent scorer to keep us out of slumps and keep the pace going.no bench.no halfcourt offense.no post player.WHEW this can be a long season so i suggest you 50+ win knick fans brace for it.The sad thing is that even if we do fire mike and get a defensive coach,these guys are so used to being bad on D that we would probably need to edit the roster again.Walsh got us in a truck load of crap because we can get melo and win 50+ wins a year but now our team is going to always be a defensive liability with dantoni stuff but yea walsh needs to get rid of dantoni because championship and dantoni doesnt go in the same sentence but dantoni and extreme fun does.so what would you knicks fans want? get melo score 120 a game and getting bounced in the 2nd round and at most the ECF or a team that gives up 95 ppg and scoring 101 ppg and being a contender?
Btw if anyone says amare is a post player get out.facing up is totally another story.
Yeah, when I think of the Knicks, I think of our greatest teams with big men protecting the paint and the rest of the team also bringing defense. We don't even have bad defensive players. I love fast paced style, but it's not fast paced when we're not playing good. I want us to own the paint on both ends.
