Lets face it! The Knicks are not a defensive team and that will not change. The problem is we have players who you can't depend on to shoot the ball or can't their own shot. The knicks is not a great ball shooting team and worst at defense. We can't depend on Melo to bail us out. I remember us calling Crawford (Crawfull) well guess what? he kicked our butts today by just shooting the rock. Forget defense we must play a little defense but get some shooters in here as fast as we can. Now don't get me wrong because with this team we can go to the second round and in order for us to go farther then that our three ball must be falling like rain and that won't happen. We lack defense and with the team we have we will not play defense so I suggest we get some shooters in here and a big strong center who can shoot. I love Chandler but I'd rather have Dwight Howard. We need to make some changes.

The Knicks need to get a good player a player that is going to be consistent On a nightly basis to go with Melo and plays the perimeter. The Knicks don't have that with any player.

Knicks problem is simple. The only 2 way player we have is Melo. Chandler provides limited offense. Amare provides limited defense and average offense.

That basically translates to: I'd rather have Denver's squad right now

Knicks just need to balance out the roster.

Yea but if you had the choice right now, which squad would you choose? Remember you're in a vacuum

They have plenty of scorers. The problem is they don't defend and have to play from behind every game leading to a Melo 1 on 5 offense while everyone else stands around and can't hit shots when called upon.

Get back to November/early December defense, get leads and then move the ball. We did this during the 5 game winning streak. Defensive slipped again after Washington

The team defense is the problem, they can play really good and they can play really bad, all in one game..

Our back court is getting torch cause our rotations are just switch..

Melo plays well scores a bunch of points, but he kills ball movement

Amare coming off the bench is a absolute joke at this point

Kidd starting despite getting roasted by any guard with speed, is a even a bigger joke

Playing Novak and not running one single screen

Playing kidd 30 minutes despite is negative imapct the last 5 games

playing priggss almost no minutes despite is positives.


WTF is going on with woodson these days??

why doesn't he sit melo when he plays poorly defensively MR. Accountabilty

The knicks need a consistent second scoring threat behind Melo. They are not going to win anything with Amare and JR as their 2nd and third scoring options.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Another scoring option won't matter if we continue running iso's. We don't have the flexibility to add a legitimate scorer like a Rudy Gay. Amare/Melo/Tyson make up $54mil of our salary cap. Cap is $58mil

Would love to swap JR for Reddick but salaries don't match

Small starting lineup stinks. Just start Amare and play Kurt until Sheed returns. Being down double digits every game in the 1st quarter is killer.

Or trade for a PF/C who's not 40yrs old

Of course, he doesn't solve every problem. You need Lebron or Durant for that.
