Phil might have said yes

Jim Dolan was never going to ask Phil Jackson if he wanted to coach the Knicks because Phil might have said yes.

Dolan wants yes men. He wants to wield his absolute power over the team and input where he sees fit without having to consult the coach or GM. Take the signing of JR Smith for example.

Jim Dolan is not at all concerned about winning championships. As long as Woodson leads the Knicks to around 50 wins, get the sixth seed  or better to almost lock a second round appearance and the winning puts asses in the seats Dolan will be happier than a pig in shit.

What is Mike Woodson's m.o.? He's a lock in a full season for 50 some odd wins and second round defeats in the playoffs. He is a good boy who respects his boss and will do what he's told. He's the perfect coach for Dolan and Phil Jackson is not.

Phil was never going to get that call Knicks fans so move on with your lives. You will never see a championship trophy as long as Dolan is the owner, just accept it.

Are you not entertained?

Well that's it. The Knicks have been eliminated and the season is finally over.

The Knicks fell into the same old tired offense, give the ball to Anthony and hope he can make magic. Now, many Anthony fans will say that he is the only possible option as if he is the only person on the Knicks being paid millions of dollars to play. Well, to those people I have one question regarding the outcome of this season: Are you not entertained?

Lots will be made of all the turmoil and how this team was able to overcome so much and get into the playoffs. Which is complete bullshit but OK, whatever.

Fact is the Knicks as an organization have neither the wherewithal (salary cap) or smarts to put together a team any better than what was seen this season. So this is exactly how future seasons will play out with this assembly of top dollar talent, don't expect more for your own sanity.

As much as I like Jeremy Lin he proved to be a one handed marketing ploy who has a hard time dribbling when the pressure is on but he will sell jerseys and put Asian asses in the seats.

Should Jeremy have come back and "given the team fifteen minutes" like I heard some broadcasters asked? Hell no, especially since he is a free agent and after watching Davis and Shumpert both being carried off the floor due to knee injuries why should he jeopardize his future with no guarantees especially since we all knew the Knicks weren't going any damn where.

Had Lin gone out there tonight and tore his knee up permanently those same people who questioned his honesty about his injury would have said he was never really going to amount to much in the NBA anyway. He did the correct thing for himself. Whether or not it was the right thing all depends upon your perspective.

Now knowing the type of shrinking violet Landry Fields is around Carmelo Anthony I'm sure Jim Dolan wishes he could go back in time and include Landry in the Carmelo trade and maybe kept Felton who the Nuggets never needed and quickly shipped off to Portland after the season.

Landry would be much better suited out west and from the analysts I got to hear around the country this year they still think he is a good player who just doesn't fit the Carmelo Anthony version of the Knicks so he might have some trade value.

Maybe Carmelo Anthony will hit the weight room and not look so weak and puffy while guarding Lebron next season. We shall see.

Who knows what is going to happen to this team but I know this. The Knicks Lose Again, Heat 106 - Knicks 94

Hello Brooklyn!

There is no hope

Again the Heat toyed with the Knicks tonight and still got the victory going up 3 - 0 in the series. The Knicks never had this team on the ropes despite the illusions that might have been cast by the sloppy and lethargic play from Miami.

The Heat knew that the Knicks would be fired up and expending a lot of energy but no matter how hard the Knicks tried they'd still be limited to the few scoring options they have. So the Heat let them shoot their wad and then put it on them in the fourth quarter.

Lebron James scored 17 points in the fourth to show his dominance and seal the deal.

The Heat didn't need to exert anymore energy than they did because they knew that the Knicks couldn't handle the whuppin' they'd dish out when motivated to get the game over.

Miami's defense blanketed Carmelo Anthony which resulted in his poor and inefficient effort. Sunday's game will be much of the same so just prepare for the season to end with the Knicks going 12 years without a playoff game victory.

But your leader Jim Dolan traded any and all hopes of help from future draft picks for Carmelo Anthony so you Knicks fans need to suck it up and get used to the next several years being exactly like the last two.

There is no hope, no light at the end of the tunnel.

Don't for a second believe that Phil Jackson is going to come out of his yoga pose and ride in here to rescue the Knicks on a skateboard.

Phil Jackson only coaches teams with lots of star power and the formula for instant playoffs success. Just add milk and stir with him being the milk.

That ain't the Knicks so you can be damn certain that the zen master won't be the next Knicks coach so just dislodge that crap from your minds now.

The Knicks Lose Again, Heat 87 - Knicks 70
