I'm really frustrated with that loss last night.
I haven't been this angry in a long time and it's because of freaking basketball game.
I was thinking about it and here's what I need to say.
WE ARE A .500 TEAM WITH D'ANTONI AS A COACH.
Yeah,I said it. We aren't any better than we were last season,at least not in regular season.
We have more talent on the team than year before but our bench is worse.That may change when Baron,Amare,Iman and Jeffries
Why do I think we are a .500 team ? Because we have all the same problems we had last season. We are getting outrebounded every game.
We can't play well consistently. We can play 2 good games,next 2 we will play like shit.
On top of that our defense looks much better but our offense looks worse.
It's still early in the season but that won't change few things.
First of all we aren't run and gun team anymore. Prior to the Melo trade we were which allowed us many easy baskets.
Also last year we had a much better ball movement and even though we had less weapons offensively we had better looks.
We were chucking shots from the 3-pt line last year too but they were at least coming from a good ball movement,right now it's contested three after contested three.
Let me get this straight. With D'Antoni as a coach this team will never have toughness and will never play smart.
We are clearly more talented than last year but things we improved on (defense) are masked by things we got worse at (offense,ball movement).
THIS IS A .500 TEAM WITH D'ANTONI AS A COACH.MAYBE A FEW WINS ABOVE .500 LIKE THE LAST SEASON BUT WE AREN'T GETTING NOWHERE NEAR 40 WINS.
I predicted 38-28 before the season started. Right now I predict 35-31.
And with that record we will face Miami or Chicago in the 1st round and you know what that means.
Call this an overreaction thread,I don't care.
I don't think Baron Davis will magically turn things around.
