There's a difference. I won't blame Shumpert because he gives 110% out there. I won't blame Felton because he's one of the main reasons we've got this far.
But I'll easily blame "DPOY" Tyson who sucks for the 2nd year in a row and is getting embarrassed by Roy Hibbert,who's average offensive player AT BEST.
The games are not interconnected, if you played bad, you played bad.
There is no difference.
I could say Melo hasn't showed up in the playoffs either with a 39% shooting average.
37% in his first postseason, 41% in his second, 39% currently.
Ironically the shot attempts go up, but the % goes down, as do the assists....22, 24, 25 fga's....4 dimes, 2 dimes, 1 dime.
Tyson has played like garbage, no one denies that.
But alot of players havent showed up for the Knicks in the playoffs.
It's one thing to watch LeBron play an efficient game, we know Melo is not anywhere near that level.
But even the second best player has upped his game....
32 points 9 rebounds 6 assists 1 steal 1 block on 49% shooting.
When is Melo gonna up his game in a Knicks uniform?
I forgot, everyone is happy with a first round series win.
