Default Toney Douglas struggling early in 2011-12

Toney Douglas was in no mood yesterday to discuss the Giants 24-2 wild-card playoff victory over the Falcons on Sunday. He was at MetLife Stadium to root for his brother Harry, a wide receiver for Atlanta.

“I don’t want to talk about the football game,” Douglas scoffed before the Knicks’ 91-87 victory over the Bobcats last night. “We took an L. We lost.”

It added to what was a “L” of a weekend for Douglas, too. He was 0-for-8 in road games at Washington and Detroit, lost his starting job at point guard to rookie Iman Shumpert and is still having trouble with his surgically repaired shoulder.

In short, the start of the lockout shortened season has been close to a disaster for the third-year player. Things didn’t get much better for him last night. Though the Knicks beat the Bobcats for their third-straight win, Douglas was not much of a factor, scoring two points with no assists in 12:40 of duty.

The Garden crowd didn’t appreciate his effort. After Douglas missed a jumper and committed a foul with 10:07 left in game, it booed and began chanting, “We want Shumpert.” It applauded moments later when Shumpert came in to replace Douglas.

When the fans start booing you and asking you to go to the bench,and you don't have the impact type of skills to completely win them over again, it's probably best you go elsewhere and get a fresh start. He'd literally have to become John Starks to gain the confidence of the fans at this point. Bibby is outplaying him.
