Post ASG Horn better play the kids. They can't do much worse than an 8 game losing streak.Jack and Lee play 30 minutes each... most of the kids sit (Knits plays 10 minutes).
lol. This is 2008 all over again. And, we see where that philosophy got this team the last 10 years.
Have no assets (check)
Play aged vets heavy minutes (check)
Don’t develop anybody under 30 (check)
Have no game plan (check)
Avoid thinking long-term (check)
Largest lead lost for NYK since 1991-1992 season.
Horn was asked about lack of playing time for kids.... his answer:
?Knits hasn?t had to guard a guy like Jody Meeks, whose been running around coming off screens for years. It wasn?t a good matchup for Frank, so we went with Lee and guys who?ve seen that before.?
1) I thought defense was his strength.
2) if the rookie hasn?t seen something, isn?t now a good time to expose him? Let him learn from experience and mistakes?
I guess it?s better to shelter the kid only to watch him make these mistakes down the road.
That has to be the lamest and dumbest reply I?ve ever heard uttered by a coach in a post game presser.
