Why so much Melo blame?He's doing his thing out there and he's already single-handedly won us some games.I agree that D'Antoni needs to og but I've been saying that since he got here.The problem is,the passionate fans who put themselves at the forefront only wanna complain once things get bad.There should have been a public outcry for his head long ago.This is who he's been all his career.He sends his players out to go and try to outscore ppl.We don't need that and we don't need him.He is crippling our franchise because we can't even address our defensive needs.I agree w/ Da KO King,even if we do get defensive help,it's going to rot on the bench or be underutilized.Everyone was crying how they miss Gallo but the person we really lost in that trade was Chandler but we'll never realize it.He wasn't used to his fullest potential because our coach's idea of defense is "hurry up and let them do w/e they want so we can get the ball back." Walsh needs to step in and take a stance.D'Antoni's tenure here should be up.If it's not,Walsh is clearly saying he won't part with Mike because thats "his guy".I think if Walsh doesn't pull the trigger on Mike,Walsh AND D'Antoni should be fired!No exceptions!
p.s. If we get a 2nd rounder,we could look @ Randy Culpepper from UTEP.He is like a more tamed version of Nate Robinson.
Right organization but wrong coach for me. I want Don Newman.
When it comes to free agents we need to keep in mind that there may be a new CBA in place; so there is no telling what financially the team will have to work with yet.
Another thing is without a new coach getting a true defensive center is pointless because Coach Pringles won't play him. With what Coach looks for in his center spot, that job offensively is Amar'e Stoudemire's. So they'd have to find a guy that could be the offensive "big forward" while defending the opposing center. There are only a handful of those guys in the league; none of them are going to be on the market.
I think those chants need to start happening, it will be like music to my ears to hear those chants at the Garden.
No excuse whatsoever.He's stronger than most players on the court.Bigger than most players on the court and more athletic than most players on the court.So either he's giving less effort than most players on the court, has worst technique than most players on the court or he's being pushed less by his coach to rebound less than most players on the court....or a combination of all three.
