Extremely bummed I wasn't able to catch this game. Hopefully MSG airs Knicks in 60 or the full rewind tonight.
Listenining to some ESPN Radio on lunch break, caught a gem while breaking down the win.

"The thing I really love about this team: Carmelo Anthony thinks he's better than you. Jason Kidd thinks he's better than you. Raymond Felton hates you."

"He didn’t make shots in the playoffs, but that’s not a slump for him." - Tyson Chandler on Jason Kidd's 2013 postseason,

A picture really is worth a 1000 words.

Looks like he's sleeping. Even worse Williams looks like he doesn't even want to be there. Looks like he no longer wants any part of the Nets franchise. His crappy attitude on the bench is how he plays the game on the basketball court. All the talent in the world, but plays the game with no heart. Zero. None. Just an overall crappy teammate.

No, no, no! There are other threads on here showing the severe superiority of the Deron Starphucque to our inferior MeloPhucque! Deron makes those around him better! Look at that picture! Can't you see the quality and potential oozing out of those chairs!

All we have is smiling fat boy!

Deron thinking [and later saying]: "...I think I offically miss Jerry Sloan now..."

Every nba analyst claimed that the nets would be a top 3 team in the east lol. I knew that the nets would be improved but very overrated. sure enough i was right they are a 6-8 seed team

They are a great team on paper. Deron's year isn't helping them. They haven't been able to put it together. I wonder at what point a guy Wallace stops throwing his body around to get every single possesion he can if the losing continues. Maybe it was last night,
Phil Jackson on whether Melo has to change way he plays: I think we have to change some of the people around Carmelo

It is not about talent. It is about fit. Te Nets could get it together. Some groups take longer than others.

Fortunately, our old dudes (and head coach) know what time it is.

37-12 baby.

TO some extent it is about talent. NJ is a good well balanced team. They have good players at the 1,3 and 5. solid role players as well. However, they don't have a true star. This is not the 80s or 90s where a really good guard meant u were a really good team. Deron isnt superstar talent. Brook, as good as he is, has glaring weaknesses in his game and more important he's often injured.

Our team has the best player on the court against most of the teams we play. That matters. Balance is good, but it doesnt win championships often. More often than not Star power does and they really don't have that. I was completely perplexed by all the analysts saying Nyets were better than us.

Joe JOhnson isn't an every game player and he dissappears. I wouldn't want him on my team, anywhere near that price. He's not worth it, he owes Steve Nash about 8 mil per.

Joe Johnson, Brooks fragility and D-Wills penchant to kill coaches is why they will not be better than us in the Melo era. Good respectable team, can win on any given night but mentally soft 1 and 3, and ur biggest player is physically soft. Not a winning combo.

Can't wait to see the "...and now we have no flexibility!!!" threads on ultimatenets.com.
