Default re

the one thing i respect about the knicks is that they have an owener who does not care about money, hes willing to spend to make the team better,

while othere teams like phoenix are scared to go over the cap to resign their own players, which is why youll see barbosa gone maybe even marion next season,

once new york gets a smart gm , theyll be on the right track

Isiah loves guards a little too much:stupid:

Kinda odd that Starbury is the only player along with Oscar Robertson to average 20 and 8 for his career seeing as i think very little of him

:confused:

Oh man....
I won't pretend to not "hate" the Knicks....
the 90s forever cemented my feelings for the orange and blue...

but

its hard to have a rivalry if both teams aren't competetive..
I won't say the Pacers have been lighting the world on fire with the idiocy the last few years with artest and underachieving...

but

I'd never wish this on the Knicks....
I "hate" you guys but you're also the KNICKS.......a pillar of the NBA...one of the old school...one of the icons...you guys can't suck...



I don't want you to win the World Championship but I do want you to get to the ECF so WE can beat you and go to the championships...

And I want to beat you in a 7 game, hard fought, daggers in the heart, controvery infested series...

Cannot say I am shocked. Sad way to end a good career if this is it for LB.

Yeah, the team might now win 35 games but where are they going? At least with Larry at the helm you could think he might bring the right players in, teach the rookies how to play and build the basis of a championship team but with Isiah now coaching? Damn. The knicks are stuck in mediocrity for the next 5 years.

Isiah was a great player but he should be banned from everything but scouting the draft when it comes to actually working for a team.

You have to remember that Isiah coached 3 of the most talented Pacers teams ever and wasted Reggie's last decent years in the league by coaching them deep into the first round of the playoffs. (To be knocked out by far less talented teams) He's as bad a coach as he is a gm. (ok maybe not that bad. but close)

This will unite the Owner, the GM and the players. Everybody will want to provr it was Brown and not them. I think these clowns will become a team because of this (For one year) I can see them winning 45 games next year, Zeke is not that bad of a GM, I think he may have fallen in live with one too many chicago players (Curry and Crawford) and the James signing was bad, but all in all I think he wants to play that Phoenix Suns style ball and Brown was not the right coach. He will go small and get to the first round of the playoffs.

Default Does anyone think?

Does anyone think that Dolan waited purposely until after the Finals to fire Larry Brown? It seemed odd, because we knew Brown was going to be fired many weeks ago, but it wasn't announced...Why?

Maybe the league and David Stern asked Dolan to wait until after the Finals, so as not to distract from the playoffs? Or maybe Dolan and Isiah wanted the headlines to themselves? Just a thought....

Default F*&$% Isiah

Larry Brown had no chance with this team.. Isiah wouldnt let him make any moves. Isiah wanted to be coach from the start and forced Larry out..

Losing 30 games means they win 52, which would be a fantastic season

Really, if a coach's merit is judged based on how much better he makes his players, Brown is one of the worst ever and Bick is one of the best.

The reason Larry had the Knicks "playing well, WELL below their [talent]" is because they were never going to be good if he let the players play their game. They would have been better than they were, but they would have had no chance of ever becoming a good team. The way Larry went about coaching this team, as well as every other team he had coached, was he would start from the ground and work his way up. Unfortunately, with this volatile mixture or players and coach, they never got past the first floor.

I would say Larry does need to take some of the blame for this disaster; he did add fuel to the fire by going to the media and berating the players for millions to see. His coaching and basketball knowledge, however, were not the problems. The mix of obstinate (headstrong) players with less understanding of how to play the game "the right way" than they were willing to admit and a coach who knew too much for his team's own good, and was not afraid to let them know, were the problems.

Bernie Bickerstaff in Charlotte was lucky enough to get young players who were willing to play hard and listen (as were the Knicks) AS WELL AS vet's who were willing to play hard and set good examples for the younger guys (ie. Brevin Knight, Jumaine Jones). The Knicks were sorely lacking in that are. Malik Rose was not enough to overcome the bad seeds.

I say good riddance. Larry Brown. Now go curl up in a corner with your money and die.

Can't stand the way he throws hard working players under the bus only to make himself not look bad while jetting with tons of money.
