This shit is pathetic

This fucking team sucks so hard it really gets tiring sometimes writing the same post. Even good natured Tyson Chandler couldn't refrain from getting a technical foul out of frustration of the ineptitude of his team and coaching last night in their loss to the Rockets.

The biggest mistake of the Donnie Walsh regime is still haunting this team. It was Donnie who insisted upon drafting tween-er guards who were never point guards at their cores. It takes a special mindset that derives pleasure from putting his teammates in position to score and only looks for a shot when the defense breaks down or the shot clock is running out.

That description doesn't apply to Douglas or Shumpert and probably never will and the free agent point guards they did bring in are all over the hill they can only play limited minutes or are too injured to play.

And this morning I see rumors of the Knicks looking into Kenyon Martin or maybe Jose Calderon and the Sixers have inquired about Amare Stoudemire. One thing is a fact, this shit is pathetic.

Any chance Anthony could take the rest of the season off?

Playing without Carmelo Anthony was not the cause of tonight's loss it was turning the ball over in the fourth quarter due to poor point guard play.

The game was the most entertaining of the season until the wheels came off. Any chance Anthony could be talked into taking the rest of the season off? Just asking.

An idol mind is the devil's workshop

The Knicks have a major problem with Shumpert at the point guard position which is costing the Knicks games but it is not as simple as poor play. Shumpert is too idol struck by Carmelo Anthony.

When Carmelo Anthony stops rotating the ball and throws up wild shots so does Shumpert. When Anthony passes the ball and puts his selfish offensive style in his pocket Shumpert follows suit.

Shumpert is so stuck on the idea of playing like and with his hero that any game plans and coaching just completely leave his mind when he is on the floor with Anthony.

D'Antoni either has to make him the two guard or send him to the D-League for reps at the point until running an offense becomes his second nature and not idol worship.

Mr. Dolan, if you are reading this please believe me when I say that trading Carmelo and  Douglas to the Orlando magic for Dwight Howard is a better idea than trading Amare' Stoudemire. Stop listening to Isiah for the love of God.

And Toney Douglas just plane sucks, I had to get that in.

This is going to be one extremely long abbreviated season

Some people will mistakenly point to Carmelo Anthony's late wild makes as the heroics that got the Knicks into over time. But this is just folly by those wanting to make excuses for Anthony. Had the Knicks maintained the good ball movement of the first three quarters, which made for the entire team contributing to the lead, this game would never have gone into over time to begin with.

While Carmelo Anthony sat on the bench after his poor shooting in the first half Landry Fields and Amare Stoudemire looked like their former selves before the Anthony trade. They attacked the rim, made their shots, ran the floor and played solid defense but that wasn't enough for D'Antoni.

Instead of keeping Carmelo on the bench and splitting his time between Walker and Harrelson D'Antoni inserted Anthony back into the line up in the fourth quarter and then the ball stopped moving, guys stopped moving and the offense had to go through Carmelo. Stoudemire didn't even get a chance to attempt a shot in the fourth period and first over time when all night the Nuggets had no answer for him.

The Knicks have now lost six in a row to poor and mediocre teams and there is nothing to give any hope that things will get better because Carmelo refuses to play team basketball and no one can seem to convince him to or force him to. They couldn't in Denver and they Can't do it in NYC.

This is going to be one extremely long abbreviated season for the Knicks fans.

Knicks are nothing more than hype

The battle of the two worse sub .500 teams took place last night in Madison Square Garden and the Bucks, who hadn't won a road game all year, came out the victors.

Playing with no sense of urgency or realization that they are truly a poor basketball team the Knicks were taken advantage of by the Milwaukee Bucks who took it to the Knicks in the second half to once again prove that Carmelo Anthony and this cast of characters are nothing more than hype.

Every team in the NBA feels that the New York Knicks get all the publicity and notoriety it does simply because they play in New York City and are motivated to whip them in the Garden every chance they get. For the better teams it is a chance to appear the bigger bully for the lesser teams beating the Knicks is their playoff and championship game. Unfortunately Mike D'Antoni and the Knicks players don't seem to grasp this fact and begin games with a sense of urgency and importance. The rest of the league is happy to take advantage of them.

Last night when it became apparent that the Knicks were going to lose again Carmelo Anthony showed a new low in class by fouling and mouthing off to Brandon Jennings resulting in his second technical foul which got him tossed from the game in the fourth quarter. I think he didn't want to be on the court to hear the boos after the final buzzer sounded and purposely got tossed.What a leader.

Can someone explain to me in what way Carmelo Anthony is better than Zach Randolph? That's what I thought, nothing but hype.

Tonight the Knicks play the Denver Nuggets and will face Danillo Galinari and Timofey Mozgov and if you are a Knicks fan prepare for another whupping.

You are going to have to suffer through this for the next six years

You would think that a professional basketball player of average intelligence would recognize an evening when his shot wasn't falling and decide that if he isn't going to get thirty points, he'd try his damndest to get thirty rebounds. Well, Carmelo Anthony is not of average intelligence and was hell bent on forcing poor shots whether or not he was double teamed or off balanced.

Since he has arrived in NYC the Knicks have a losing record and Stoudemire and Fields have become shells of themselves. Instead of uplifting the players around him Carmelo Anthony has lowered everyone's game.

Are you waiting for my solution to the problem? There isn't one. You are going to have to suffer through this for the next six years. Good luck with that.

So let's recap shall we. In order to acquire Anthony and make room for his salary the Knicks traded to Denver Danillo Gallinari, Raymond Felton, Timofey Mozgov and Wilson Chandler along with two second round picks the Knicks acquired in the trade of David Lee to Golden State. The Knicks also traded Anthony Randolph and Eddie Curry's expiring contract, which probably would have been enough to get Chris Paul, to Minnesota for Corey Brewer, who would have made a nice two or three for the Knicks but was promptly sent to Dallas. Brewer was able to cash that bright idea into a championship ring. Do you still think it was a good idea to give up all that talent and cap space for Marshmelo?

This team will hover around .500%

Until the guard positions are sorted out this team will hover around .500%. That's just all there is to it.

The sooner we can see what Baron Davis has to offer the sooner we can package Fields and Douglas for a two guard with a consistent shot.

Patrick Ewing is advising Dwight Howard to stay in Orlando so all you fans and media types can just dislodge from your minds any notions of a Howard for Stoudemire trade. Ain't happening and I think Ryan Anderson just hit another three.

I did get a kick out of seeing Quentin Richardson whooping and hollering over his team's victory acting much like a woman scorned joyfully seeing her ex being hauled off by the police who found his weed stash. Well Quentin if you weren't such an over weight lazy bastard you probably would have stayed a Knick but you seemed to enjoy showing up to the great New York restaurants more than you did showing up to camp in shape. No one is happier to see you in an Orlando Magic uniform than Knicks fans.

The D'Antoni watch has officially begun

With the best record in the West and coming off a five game winning streak I didn't bother to watch this game because I knew what the outcome would be when the Knicks faced the Oklahoma Thunder tonight. The score was closer than I had expected until I saw the box scores. It was never really close at all.

The D'Antoni watch has officially begun.

I hope you are happy now

Again the second unit played hard, swung the ball, made shots and played defense including the rookie Harrelson.

Unfortunately for the Knicks the other rookie was in the starting unit and instead of competing against the Grizzlies he decided to compete with Carmelo Anthony for the most jacked up shot attempts.

But you know what I don't blame the other rookie, he  wasn't a consistent shooter in college so there was no reason to believe he would be one in the pros. No, I blame Mike D'Antoni who has allowed the other rookie to play this way. Mike needs his ass kicked on the way out the door and immediately.

With Carmelo Anthony's selfish brand of basketball, which is why the Knicks will never win while he is in a Knicks jersey, and Mike's tomfoolery of a system the Knicks will continue to be a joke and a first round playoff bust.

To all you asses in the media who demanded the trade for Anthony no matter what it took well you fuckers fished your wish. I hope you are happy now.

Let the booing continue.

Last night the Knicks lost to a team named after a cub scout badge.The Charlotte Bobcats, after losing to Cleveland the night before, knew they'd have easy pickin's when they came into the Garden.

Despite the fact that Boris Diaw looks as if he ate his way through Europe during the lockout he was swift and motivated enough to look like Olajuwon as he dusted Amare Stoudamire on the way to a win last night.

It looks as if this team goes on the court and waits for the superstar fairy dust to kick in and then are surprised that other teams dare make shots against them. Well guys get used to it because you haven't done a damn thing to earn anyone's respect. Not from other teams and certainly not from your fans.

Hey, Mike Woodson, would you mind telling the players that they need to box the hell out when a shoot goes in the air?

Right now, I'd take Nate Robinson over Landry Fields and Toney Douglas put together.

Let the booing continue.

It's Time To Move On!

So not only did Toney Douglas forget how the Knicks played the other night against the Kings but he also forgot the play out of a time out with 17 seconds seconds left and was out of position which forced Carmelo to throw up a bad shot.

It is time for the experiment to be over and find out what trade value is in both Toney Douglas and Landry Fields. Really.
