I just want to state that I am a huge Knicks fan and have been for many, many years. However, I am hoping that they lose to ever team that they play. Why, because I am hoping that it will force the Knicks to make the following changes:
Fire Woodson and bring in a coach who is more creative with offensive schemes and who actually gets the players to buy in on defensive assignments. His iso-centric offense is simplistic and easy to defend. The ball should me moving more and plays should be called for other players on the floor which will help them get in rhythm. The reason they get no scoring from others is because they only get the ball occasionally on offensive sequences. Unlike JR and Melo, plays are not run for them. He preaches that he is a defensive minded coach, but his interior defense is non-existent and his switching defense does not work. He is stubborn and unwilling to try anything new and insists on playing only veterans. If it weren’t for injuries rookies would never see playing time. Minutes, not garbage time minutes, are important to their development. He does nothing in that department and this is a team with Martin, Stoudemire and Meadow World Peace no longer durable enough to play a whole season. Prigioni, is 35 and Chandler is often injured. Doesn’t it make sense to give the rookies more playing time to develop their play and confidence?
Stop trying to buy championships by signing superstars "Mr. Dopelan". Keep your first round picks and build through the draft. Buying superstars is not working. Mr. Dopelan, please remove yourself from the basketball decision making process and put people in place who knows talent and how to make smart trades because the definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over and expecting a different outcome.
Perhaps Mr. Dopelan is insane.
