Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

How many times did Fields get the ball with about 2 seconds on the clock after Melo ate the other 22 seconds? Pretty much impossible to get in any sort of rhythm as a teammate of Carmelo. He makes every player on the court with him worse. Stars are suppose to make players around them better.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

How many times did everyone on the court stand around not doing anything when Melo was in an iso? "Off-Ball movement" didn't exist on the Knicks. I'm not going to say that Carmelo isn't a ballhog, but what is he supposed to do when nobody else is moving when he has the ball? And how is Carmelo supposed to make a:
Unhealthy Amar'e who also had no jumper and was dealing with is brothers death. I can't count how many times someone found an open STAT and he barely hit the rim with his jumper
JR Smith who still thought he was in China and had one of the worst playoff performances ever
Fields who changed his shot for no reason and it was for the worse

better? NOBODY was making the Knicks better last year (besides LeBron). That team was built for failure.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Then once teams figured him out he went back to no-wait, that was all Carmelo's fault. Nevermind

I really wish we got Lin back too, fuck Felton. The only person under 25 on our roster is Shumpert, what a joke

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

The team had good flow and movement before he got there if I recall correctly. He just seemed to suck all the energy out of town. Maybe guys got complacent with a "star" in town, who knows. Guys just stand around and watch as he meaninglessly dribbles before chucking or getting into trouble and making a pass with no time on the clock. He's never been great at getting teammates involved though. I'm not saying no one else was at fault but things were better before he got there and were (seemingly) better in every game he missed lulz.

If you ask Deron Williams, Felton > Lin.

Me and pretty much my entire collection of friends thinks Lin will be a colossal failure. I wouldn't be too upset about it just yet. From what I saw in camp Felton is faster and in much better shape than he's been in a few years.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

You can blame Dantoni for no one moving during iso ball since it would mess up the "floor spacing" . The fact that Melo was playing point forward also killed us (Toney Douglas as our starting pg to start the season 3)
