This was a comment to 2010 or bust, but it got too long, so I made it a post.
New Yorkers are supposed to be known for being the most knowledgeable fans. Well, lets not look like a bunch of morons when we agree to Walsh and D’Antoni’s plan and then exile them before they even have a chance to carry it out.
I think this team sucks because it has sucky players on it. Our best players would only be bench guys on a contending team. We don’t even have a single player on our roster who would be a starter for a championship squad (maybe Gallo in the future, but not now). I love David Lee for all the crap that he’s put up with, and how he leaves it all on the floor, but he can’t be in our future. At the end of the day, you have to realize he’s only an awesome guy off the bench who wants starter type money. A starting power forward for a championship team can’t be horrible at defense, lack post moves, and have a suspect jumper. I’m sorry. He only looks like a starter because of all the other toilet bug players starting for the Knicks.
Give Walsh the two or three years he needs to turn over the roster. Don’t say D’Antoni sucks because he’s losing right now. At least give him a chance to lose with NBA starter caliber players. Then we’ll see if he’s a good coach or not.
Stop acting like a bunch impatient ignorant schmucks! If D’antoni and Walsh get fired, then Dolan is going to hire somebody who will go for the quick fix again, and we’ll be stuck in this wretched basketball purgatory forever. Stay the course, and wait till we get these bums off our roster.
We’ve been waiting thirty six years for a championship!!! What? You can’t wait two or three years more to rebuild? Like if we fire them some guy in a white hat is going to ride through the door and coach these guys to a championship tomorrow! Idiots.
If you’re not like the rest of these clowns who are yelling “Fire D’Antoni” please make yourselves heard. Why should the ignorant dirt bags drown out the real fans who realize that this could be our one shot to escape our endless cycle of sucking. Someone intelligent say something…
