League's worst defense and offense while having two of the league's top 20 players.
At the very least our OFFENSE should be good, we have Carmelo ****ING Anthony!
Did you hear what they said on TNT at the start of the 3rd?
Something reminiscent of:
Mike D'Antoni was sitting at the bench after coming out of the locker room calculating the required amount of shots and the % of makes required to get back in the game.
That was the game plan coming in to the 3rd - a notoriously troublesome quarter for the Knicks. Score points through spacing and ISOs at x% and win. No high % plays, just chuckity chuck chuck.
Yup, Kevin Harlan said something like: "Mike D'Antoni calcuated at thalftime that all the Knicks need to do in order to win this game is to reduce the Lakers FG% from 71% to 61%"
I was like "WTF?"
Did anyone else hear that from Harlan....unbelievable D'Antoni really did that, he's so thick.
Well we have argued what was the issue with this team for YEARS, we have turned over all stones looking for solutions...
Players vs Coach vs Philosophy vs Unforseen Circumstances
The front office
We have blamed everyone blamable. Marbury, Isaiah, Dolan, JVG, the interns...
We wanted to hold out hope. Maybe if this happened, or tha happened...smh
But deep down inside we knew this guy doesn't belong in this building!
Remember when he first started? Remember the benching of Marbury to prove his point? Remember how we blamed Marbury, then Nate, then Crawford, then Randolph and Darko.... remember how they all looked so much better playing for other coaches? Remeber?
Well are we convinced yet? It wasn't them , it was him!
