Default Re: Evaluating the Knicks

Its only two games so im in a wait and see mode. Im not as impressed with the extra effort, because it could just be emotion from the resignation.Im more impressed with the changes in fundamentals n principles.

That being said,theres still one thing that I dont like. No Scooter it isnt the 3s because we have been taking high percentage ones for the most part. For me,its the lobs. I know we r excited and alleys gets the crowd going but we try it too much. We need to start making the simple pass more. Every thing doesnt have to be a homerun. We need to find that balance. Both Baron n Lin get a lot of turnovers by trying to throw alleys or thread the needle. We need to know when to b flashy n wen to make the easy play. I dont mind it out of Lin becuz its his 2nd yr but Baron should kno better.

IDK Franchize, the Lob attempts open the floor up, and keeps a team on their heels.

Miami does it alot, and they miscue quite a few.

As of right now, I have no issues of note, but one things I did like is that Woodson take each possession seriously.

I recalled the game before when JR was hot, and Shumpert started to take shots himself, wound up getting benched for it.

Then last night Shump recognized Baron was heating up, ran down the floor, could have heaved it, but saw Baron pulling up to the three point line and fed him.

Then of course was the convo with JR near the end of the game, when he called for hanging on the rim.

Woodson gave him an earful, but at the end said something like "Good Job".

Accountability is what he's preaching out there combined with defense first.

JR was getting his balance back. He wasn't hanging.

BTW, did anyone catch when JR got booed for not passing to an open Novak? JR actually made the right play, but the crowd wanted some threes.
