im a big sports fan, basketball isnt really my cup of tea but im a new york guy in if i watch basketball im a knicks fan no doubt about it.. is that offensive foul a little redic? i mean maybe it could be a foul but with 20 seconds left in the game and the number 8 seed up a point over the celtics and they have the ball is it possible that that fould shouldn't be called?
seemed like it was definitely a call favoring the big dogs and i find it hard to believe if the situation was reversed the knicks are getting that call..again im not a huge basketball guy so im just asking
seemed like a crap call late in the game to me, terrible shot by melo for the win
I dunno have Douglas continue running around with his head cut off but toward the basket and get fouled instead of Melo taking a 26 foot 3 when he's been aids all game? he's the fastest guy on the court
The way they are constantly out coached at the end of games will always blow my mind. There is no way jeffries should have touched the ball that last possesion, a guy who touches the ball >5 times a game cant be expected to make the big shot/pass in that situation. How is it not communicated in the huddle that you have to foul IMMEDIATELY in the huddle after the timeout? And the thing that bothers me the most is how the hell is Shawne Williams sitting on the bench while bill walker is still in the game? Williams can guard Pierce and has always been a better option on offense especially tonight, its just unreal
So now it looks like earlier in the season we were purposely hyping up Fields to ship him in the future trade but Nuggets didn't bite, right? Not only he is non factor in play offs, he is not even on the floor when half of the team is down and the other guy is shooting 0 for 10.
Also, we all remember how Dantoni never took time outs down the stretch and we routinely were finishing games with 1-2 timeouts left. Wtf happened in playoffs? Second game in the row we need a timeout for a final play and there just aren't any left!!! Now he is using them??? I know that Rivers is a good coach and all but he is out coaching D'Antoni out of the ****ing building!!! Get that bum out of here. With Melo his system looks like garbage anyway! Now that we know that Knicks can play D, we need someone who will put that into a system while utilizing Melo\Amare skills on offense.
-Depending on how the CBA shakes out, I don't expect to see Billups back.
-Jeffries and Shawne Williams may be re-signed for cheap.
-Our depth sucks, and we're probably gonna struggle to fill it via free agency. Not having any draft picks for the next 300 years doesn't help either.
Players I expect to be on the roster next year:
Wings: Melo, Fields, Walker, Balkman
Bigs: Amare, Jeffries, Turiaf, Williams
