I realize we're only a handful of games out of the 8th spot but this team has "Tin Man Disease"--no heart whatsoever.

breen bitch doesn't have those words when any of our guys score 35-40 points

he has 45, and hit the tying shot..what is he suppose to say?

the question is...have you ever seen him say that about KP or THJr when they make the winning shot and score 35-40 points. i am not mad that he says that about some other player but the fact that he says that ONLY about other team's players.
for him, the grass is always greener on the other side

we need speed throughout the game and that's the responsibility of the PG...neither one of our PGs has that, but at least one can make shots and one can defend, now if only there was a way to merge them.

It's not about SELLING right now. They're gonna make deals based on simple logic. They have to make a trade. The issue with the losing is FIXABLE. They're just not getting good Coaching IMO. There's a LOT of poor decisions being made in the way Jeff has them playing right now.

Calling for plays where they're staring way out away from the basket in slow motion. Stop with those meaningless Weaves behind the 3pt line. No real deception in the offense and no intelligence to the offense IMO.

You can stop trying to bait me with stupid posts.

The truth is that the Knicks are not being outclassed they're no longer playing consistently good ball. That 4th qtr and OT was bad basketball. Since they obviously have periods of good ball then I have to blame the coach cuz this team can't sustain quality. He's not putting them in the best positions to score.

The offense is AGAIN too predictable and this time no one can blame it on the Triangle. This is just Jeff coaching completely different than he did before he got here.

Part of it is the players he has but a LOT of it is the play calling. They have completely abandoned any 4 Out looks this year. No Early Spread PnR like he used to do. There's very little quick offense. They're too slow to get into anything.

I forgot to mention all the extra ISO offense. His rotations need to be improved as well. IMO Jeff has enough talent to be winning games if he had them playing a better style of offense.

We must may have to accept Phil Jackson and the Triangle were far from the causes of the problems.
The offense a year later has the same problems and this without a Melo like ball stopper.
KP didn't hold the ball too long in this one at all.
Kanter and KP have zero chemistry
Look at how DeMarcus and AD play. They can play off one another.

When you have one big a shooter and pure scorer like KP you can't have the other big also the same.
Noah is a better compliment to KP than Kanter in skill.
So is OQuinn.
Even Beasley.

KP/Kanter is our fourth best lineup IMO

But all good all for the tank.
Just don't re-sign Kanter at max money.

Next year we need a better point guard.
To not have KP play with a big Center, rather a stretch big like OQuinn or a quick 4 like Beasley.
Get more talent off the bench.

We will be a playoff team.

I agree with some of this, but Cousins and AD do not play off each other at all.

What bothers me is the way they are utilizing KP and the other scorers. There is never any Early Offense. He's abandoned any aggressive Attack Early in the shot clock to loosen up the D and get them chasing. His plays are too predictable and he's not showing awareness of players strengths or weaknesses.

How can you explain running the exact same out of bound play or all the times they run something with KP having to dribble his way to the basket from 25 feet away? All those damned WEAVES that teams are disrupting. There is no change up in how they attack it's the same stuff and teams take that away. How about running some Early 4 Out Spread PnR just to give teams a different look?

Remember those KP and THJ PnR's that gave teams trouble? Where is that stuff?
