Knicks1248: 1. Dolan should be more involved! 2. Why would any knick fan want pick 8, when that spot has a history of producing marginal NBA taken. (He prefers pick 9th instead)

If he can get in GREAT shape he would be a pain in the rear end keeping out of the paint and away from the basket.

Mudiay/Frank both fully developed in GREAT shape is kind of intriguing.

Its a step in the right direction. Based on what they (Perry and FO) have talked about building they want a defensive team. They have talked about getting more athletic on perimeter and I think this is a great start.

Look at who the Knicks have brought in this year:
Dotson
Frank
Mudiay
THjr
Burke
Jack/Sessions

excluding Jack/Sessions who were brought in specifically to add a veteran NBA PG

If you look at that group there are no slow pokes. These are guys who can get up and down the floor. Aside from Burke all those guys also at least have potential/tools to be quality NBA defenders.

No more slow pokes. Knicks are clearly trying to get younger, faster and more athletic on the outside. Its going to take time.

THJR was in the D league for part of last year and hes going to be 26 in a month. Hes barely above the Mendoza line for SGs
Dotson was the 2nd best player jn his college team as a 5 yr senior and has gotten almost no nBA run
Frank--I still like Frank and I personally will be patient with him
Mudiay--well fi8rst stop he made it to third string after 3 years on a bad team--for cheap hes fine with upside
Burke--NBA retread

1 good guard is way better than all of these guys combined. You lack a lot here--nothing to write home about right mow.

and Isiah Thomas is 34 soon but you wanted to give him $100mm. If it was up you we would be paying Allen Crabbe a max deal but yea... go remind us all that Hardway is in the D league... (last year)

As usual you missed the point. Knicks are targeting young athletic guards. Im sure they would love to have the first 3 picks in every draft but they have to pick where they pick and sign who they can get.

His pre-draft videos reminded me of J. Kidd coming out of Cal. He definitely resembles Lance. Not sure that the Kidd resemblance held up but I thought he was destined to be a star.
You playTrey Burke... Wally Szcerbiak

He certainly is NOT going to improve defensively with this coaching staff. The defensive rotations and philosophy is awful under Hornachek.

just not true

I am sure you watch the games, how many times are the opposing guys wide open for 3 pt shots? Hornacheks philosophy is our guys sag off their men to help out inside ( which never helps anyways) and leave their men wide open for 3's. Lance does it all the time. He is the worst " good" defensive player ever. Thats why we ere the worst at defending the 3 pt shot.

thats is EVERY team's philosophy. Thats help defense. We are not very good at it, but we have gotten better and that is reflected in the numbers. Knicks opponents shoot the 3 at 36%... right at the league ave, and Knicks are ranked 13th in opposing 3pt FG%. That is not bad at all. Knicks are 9th in opposing 2pt FG%.

Im sorry... the Knicks defense is better than last year and trending upward. Jeff played under Sloan and was a good defensive player. I dont see what you are seeing. Yes we give up open 3s. A ton? #s dont show anything like that. There is nothing wrong with what Jeff is telling these guys. NBA defense isnt rocket science. Its commitment. This has been the advertised plan. Build a young core committed to playing it and playing it well.

We are 25th in opponents 3 pters made, 26th in opponents 3 pters attempted. That is bad. We are giving up so many because these guys are wide open. I guess 2 people see 2 different things watching a game. All a team has to do against us is make 2-3 passes, boom, the guy is wide open.

Why is that bad? And why do you think that is? Because the KNicks are one of the best teams at defending the rim. So teams jack 3s. They are not hitting them a great rate (right at league average).

Knicks need to do and be better but the philosophy is sound. Keep teams out of the paint and force them into long jumpers. I like that philosophy just fine. Knicks need to defend the 3 better than average but that is part of the process as well. IF we were great at defending both we would be in the playoffs. We arent there yet. I dont see where its the philosophy that is hurting us. We just need to play better. Progress is there as well.

Huh .. the Knicks interior n exterior defense has gave up to many open shots this season.
The Knicks coaching staff has not committed to teaching the young core players or veterans a defensive-plan to perform as a team-system. When both coaches Horn n Rambis show no interest in forming a defensive lineup for STOPS in crunch time games for one in half seasons .. what does that say bout the coaching staff?
The Knicks road game losses for the past 4 season has been ridiculous because of the coaching-staff non-existent defensive-plan. The Phil triangle did not work because there were no type of defense added to create switches steals blocks or stops.

It's getting hard to be a Knick fan when the Knicks has been rebuilding the team every season for the past 18 seasons !!!
