Great premise aside from the fact it's based on only 3 games, and even if these 3 games were telling our team isn't anything like the Celtics in the team makeup, talent level, type of players or how we play.

Other than that, fantastic.

Seeing Amare hedging out on screens to help Lin was amazing

This thread....why? Why?

Lin and Rondo-07/08 is the best comparison.

Rondo was so doubted and people didnt think he was worthy of starting on the team and the Celtics needed to get a PG. Like Lin, he blew away people's expectations. Both the same age. Both with eerily similar stats.

Lin is a scorer. Rondo is/was not. Lin is a turnover machine. Rondo is/was not. Rondo is/was a great defender. Lin is average. The only area where Lin is Rondo's match is shooting ability, where he blows away Rondo but so does everyone.

I guess I'm comparing their situations. Rondo's certainly more of a pass-first PG but Lin can make great plays/passes. In the last few games some teams have forced him to score and cut off passing lanes (smart plan) and he's just taken those shots. Woodson (with a smart adjustment) got Melo to bring the ball up on several possessions because you want to avoid doing what an opponent's defense wants you to do.

yup, they're just like the 2008 celtics, but with inferior players and less chemistry.

Horrible comparison. Nothing alike at all. Every player on the knicks roster is a step down from their celtics comparison. First round knock out if they make it

Amare isnt looking like Amare...let alone a hungry KG

The Knicks aren't going anywhere unless they get that 6th spot.

I actually like the Knicks, but this thread makes me want to see them get swept in the first round, or better yet get pushed out of the playoffs by the Bucks.

...the f*ck?

Celtics were one of the best defensive teams in the last 20+ years who had three star players sacrifice their own personal stats for the sake of building a championship team.

The Knicks play no defense, best player is cancer Melo who is a blackhole, Amare who is allergic to anything having to do with defense or rebounding, and have PGs who make better passes to the other team than they do to their own players.


What an awful comparison.

"Top 5 defense last 3 games"

Yep, that seals the deal then.

Three straight wins towards the latter half of the season and now they're the 08 Celtics in terms of defense huh?

You hear the dumbest god damn shit about the Knicks I swear.
