I don't think Chauncey would have done that

Can we send Felton to Denver with Landry and Curry and ask them to toss in Billups with Carmelo? I don't think Chauncey would have milked the clock to 6 seconds in regulation of a tied game only to maneuver himself into an impossible fall away jump shot which when missed left just enough time for the Thunder to call a time out then hit a three to win the game. I just don't.

It is time to make drastic changes

The Knicks attempted to fight back and win this game but they got nothing out of Chandler and Fields, both of whom may have checked out mentally because of their names mentioned in trade rumors earlier in the day for Carmelo, and the rest of the team missed a lot of open shots.

It is time for this franchise to make drastic changes with or without Carmelo Anthony. Well, it was fun while it lasted.

Let's make it happen Donnie

From what I understand the Knicks showed up at an arena in Houston tonight but decided not to play so the Rockets ran circles around them and got a victory.

I also heard that the Russian has broken off talks with the Nuggets so I am sure Donnie Walsh knows that Denver will be open to taking a bag of bagels for Carmelo Anthony right now. But Donnie is a nice man and will probably offer Fields, Gallinari, Curry and one of the two 1st round draft picks he acquires for trading Randolph to a third team. Personally I wouldn't even go after Carmelo.

I would work on getting Marc Gasol and Iguadala which would make the Knicks contenders for the East today. Unfortunately my opinion doesn't matter, except to you nice folks.

Whatever deal you can make Donnie let's make it happen immediately and move forward, I can't watch much more of this.

The wheels have officially fallen off

I have to admit, I didn't watch today's game. I figured that since the Knicks couldn't beat the Kings at MSG they certainly can't beat the Suns at home either. And I was right.

Donnie, make your trades now since the wheels have officially fallen off. Get as much value out of the current roster on the trading block that you can while the getting is good.

This is what happens when you don't develop your bench

The Knicks Lose Again, Jazz 131 - Knicks 125

Everyone is going to chalk this loss up to the Knicks being tired and several players banged up. But when you witnessed the Jazz coach not afraid to go 10 players deep to get the most out of his teams effort it is abundantly clear why the Knicks lost.

When D'Antoni attempted to go beyond his normal group of players and they gave him nothing he too could find nothing on his bench. Why is that? Because he hasn't played and developed the bench so there was nothing there to call upon when he needed it the most.

Will he learn from this? Of course not. And the Knicks will keep on losing to teams that they have no business failing against even on back to back road trip games.

Thanks for giving up before the game began coach

You can tell when D'Antoni concedes a loss even before the game starts by the starting lineup.

Tonight against the Lakers everyone knew that the Knicks were going to face a steady diet of Bynum and Gasol down low so it only made sense to start Turiaf at the center position so that Amare wouldn't have to wrestle with two beasts in the first half. But D'Antoni had already made up his mind that his team had very little chance of winning and thought (wrongly of course ) that his only chance was to play Shawne Williams and hoped that he could hit some three pointers and pull one of those guys out of the paint. We all know by now that with this coach the three point shot is the answer for all that ails you. Well it didn't work tonight.

Amare only had 5 points in the first half because he and no answer for Bynum's bulk on either end of the court. And Shawne Williams finished the game 8 points. Great move Mike.

Now, I am not saying that starting Turiaf and having Mozgov backing him up at the center position would have gotten the Knicks a victory at all. However it would have done more to neutralize the advantage the Lakers had in the front court and allowed Amare to open his game up offensively thereby giving the Knicks a decent shot at defeating the Lakers.

Thanks for giving up before the game began Mike. Nice job.
