Forget about DEFENSE. This team cannot score. That's the biggest issue right now. We're supposed to be an offensively-inclined team.... yet it takes us a half to score 30 points most nights.
When Curry comes back SSOL will mean the time it takes for Curry to snag himself a hot dog on the bench.
It's funny. A cruel joke to us fans. We were supposed to be "on the cusp" of turning this around.... From what I see, this is the worst Knicks team I've ever had the displeasure to watch. If Walsh fails to recruit Lebron plus-1.... this team is heading for disaster for years to come.
anybody actually gonna watch the 2nd half?
im sick of this channel and especially the NYC "step up or shutup" commercial, how ironic
bunch of **** sherlocks running ny sports and programming
I'm going to do homework or something.
This is abysmal.
It's almost as if some players are going out of their way to make the Knicks look so bad that Lebron has no choice but to pass on NY (yeah, that means you Chris Duhon).
Then again.... Hughes is trying; and so is Harrington. David Lee is a nice player, but he gets the team killed b/c he's playing out of position (and let's face it he disappears in the 4th quarter).
Wilson Chandler has been terrible (is he still recovering?).
N8 has been absent all year.
The offense is this issue.... At least when we scored last year we were competitive... Without Harrington and N8, we lost our scoring.
And, of.... it doesn't help we have to play Jeffries, with the hope some sucker trades for him at some point. Nothing disgusts me more than wehn JJ chucks a 3-pointed (normally at the worst time).
HEY, with 8 minutes to go in the 3rd we finally crossed the 40-point barrier. What a display
Ok....I can deal with losing if we are putting in effort and we're competing...but this **** that I have been seeing so far this season makes me sick to my stomach. There is absolutely no effort, no competing, no pride, no confidence. I can understand that maybe we don't have the skills to match up with other teams (and I think even that is bull**** because any team can beat any team on any night) but lacking those 4 things is inexcusable.
I think half the members on this forum (if not all) would put more effort out on the court right now without getting paid the millions these Knick players do. I only call them Knick players because they wear the jersey but they do not exemplify or represent a true Knick player. They're lucky they still have fans. I'm bonafide but even I feel like turning the damn tv off.
A true Knick player is not letting the opposing team get off lay-up after lay-up without getting hit hard as hell. Opposing teams were scared to take it to the hole. They knew coming into Madison Square Garden that it was going to be a rough and physical game. Now teams play us and shoot 70%!!! WTF?!?!?! They have their rookies and scrubs looking like stars and ****. The Knicks play like a bunch of bitches. Every post-game interview all I see is knick players putting their diamond earrings in and talking ****, "oh we gotta just come out and start the game better...we had a players only meeting and we discussed blah blah blah bull****" It's one thing to talk about it but you gotta actually do it otherwise who gives a **** what you say.
I do agree with a lot of members that say D'antoni is not doing his job well. He's gotta learn how to motivate this team. And from what I can see the Knicks are definitely not running his offense. They ran it better last year. They just look lost on offense. All they're doing is running motion and three man weaves...the **** you ran in your high school basketball practices. But at the same time you can't coach effort and pride, etc. If I was the coach in this Milwaukee game I'd do one of two things: go to my bench and say "who is going to give me effort, hustle, grit, and pride on the court..raise your hand, the 5 of you get on that court and show me" or I'd walk the **** off and say finish the game your damn selves and coach yourselves. Chances are that bench that hasn't been playing is gonna play their ass off.
The knicks look like they've never learned the basics of basketball: when a guy is on the fast break, you cut the guy off with the ball. It's up to your teammates to get back and help with the trailers. You don't let a guy travel the length of the court and lay it up. If a guy is great with his right hand, force him left and vice versa. If the guy can't shoot, force him to shoot. If the ball is dead you pressure that guy with the ball and the rest of your teammates should be denying the pass. This switching **** on defense sickens me...take pride in defending your man. Recognize that defense often leads to quick and easy baskets. And BOX OUT!
Another thing...Duhon you're the point guard. If no one is pressuring you in the back court or pressing on you, why in the **** are you passing the ball to your forward to bring the ball up...that's your job *******. Why the hell is he still playing anyway...sit his ass down for good. His excuse was he was playing mad minutes last year...what is it this year?? He's a bum. Wilson stop taking all these ****ty ass shots and go to the basket but don't force it...he's another one that looks confused as hell on the court. Al can score but he takes a ****load of shots and forces it and often scares the hell outta me when he decides to dribble.
If you turn over the ball, dive for it, hustle for it. If you don't get it, turn up the effort on the defensive end and make up for it. These bastards want 10 mill a year to play like ****. Get the **** outta here. I wouldn't even pay these ****ers for the garbage they put on the court. In fact I'd take them off tv.
Excuse the foul language coming out of a lady's mouth lol but I'm just sick of this (as I write it's 73-41)
