The only coach to me that was better suited for this team than Thomas was Wilkens.
i hope the knick players are practicing there FTs because wit randolph and curry on the team the knicks will be shooting alot of FTs wit the opposing team in the penalty very early
Brad Miller isn't as close as to being dominant in the post as Zach and Eddy are. Brad Miller had that set jumper from the outside and had 3pt shooting capabilities. Zach doesn't shoot too many 3's if at all and if Curry doesn't develop that mid-range J like what Isiah promised then the lane will be clogged, double teams will ran toward the post and our 3pt shooters will be forced to knock down open shots. If this is the case then possilby one of them could be all-stars...I don't see both of them going...it's possible but I don't see it happening.
Point is Curry is the main post guy, and Zach can play in the post or wing. So in effect, Curry would be Oneal, and Zach would be Miller. Zach is even in better position because unlike Miller he can put the ball on the floor and has many, many post moves. I wonder how many people have seen Zach play a lot when they say the lane will be clogged... he does not start in the post at all in a lot of his game. He ends up there from his ball handling. Very crafty offensive player Zach is.
He will basically do what Channing and Lee did... play high post. Cept when he gets the ball, he can shoot or put it on the floor... unlike Frye who often settled just for the jimmy.
Main thing this means is that teams will not be able to double team Curry. And that is an awful problem to have because he cannot be stopped alone. Period.
the difference is oneal is a beast on defense and at rebounding.
I truly believe herb is very underated. The guy is good motivator and was always a smart player in his day. havent seen enuff of him as coach to know if hes the real deal tho.
