I wish we finished 8th and had to play the bulls hopefully celts will continue to struggle and we pull it off but honestly I think their starting 5 is better at every position. The only matchup that are debateable are pierce/melo and garnett/stat. I'm not happy

04-11-2011, 07:22 PM
Bulls or miami. I'd like both those matchups but we are great against the bulls. They have 1 advantage(rose) noah is small enough that we could play amare at center and run and gun on them

In the playoffs Chicago would wax you guys..... They play too good of defense and the Knicks have no one who can handle Rose, Bulls in 4 or 5.....

That's hilarious.

Bulls in 4. Luol Deng can definitely hang with Melo. Boozer can definitely handle Amare.

Miami in 6.

And the Celtics will win in 5.

Bulls in 4?? lol!! Deng can hang with melo lol! Boozer can gaurd amare?? Have u ever seen any of these ppl play? How many times did we already beat them? Lol knicks in 6. Rose had a time in march where he was a combine 0-30 from 3 over 3 games. IF we get past celts and eventually see the bulls I know well win

The Experience

It all comes down to who can play the best "Team Basketball" and the Knicks have no clue of such concept.

Rose is the best player on the floor in that series, no question.

Boozer and Noah can certainly handle Amare. Deng can play good D against Melo, but Melo will probably get his.

Chicago's bench is much deeper and the Knicks have no one who can bang with Noah.

Thibodeau is 10X the coach D'Antoni is.....

The Knicks really don't stand a chance in that series.....

04-11-2011, 07:50 PM
Nah dantoni is the best offensive coach in the nba. They can not guard amare trust me. And our bench is good as well. Douglas is a beast mason is a clutch knockdown shooter, carter plays great D williams is solid. Melo is the best iso player and best cluch player in basketball. Mr big shot, fields is decent. We've already shown we can beat them.

They can't afford it.

To get Howard they would have to trade Kobe or Gasol plus Bynum so they'd have the cap space to sign Howard which won't happen.

Not sure if he stays or leaves, but LA won't get him, they have little to no cap space, especially once the new CBA is settled.

That would make a lot of people barf.

I wouldn't be surprised if this series went seven. Boston forfeit this season when they traded Perkins. Stupid. NY will have to start building around Melo and Amare this offseason. They might have to unload Billups if they plan to keep D'antoni around.

Melo draws just as many doubles as Amare if not more.

Deng is a smart defender. He isn't going to leave Melo alone. C'mon.

I've seen all 81 of the Nuggets games this year, and tomorrow I'll have seen all 82.

I've played my entire life. I've coached by cousin's team. I live for basketball.

If Amare was getting double teams, Melo isn't going to score more points. Deng isn't an idiot and he isn't going to be the one double teaming Amare leaving Melo open. :doh:

The Nuggets were supposed to drop out of the playoffs.

The Nuggets stood no chance of making the playoffs without Melo and Chauncey.

The Nuggets were going to be lucky to even have a .500 record with that new team.

Hmmmmmm.....

Yet, we are going to be 51-31 in all likelihood. We've been pretty badly injured during a lot of that (with the new squad). We are going to be the 5th seed.

While you guys barely made it over .500, and are in the eastern conference....with Amare, Melo and Chauncey.

Yet he is 5th on ESPN for Defensive player of the year?

Makes me question your knowledge. Yes.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------
As for Melo getting double teamed. He's going to get double teamed a lot w/ or w/o Amare. Gimme a break man. Just because Amare is in, doesn't mean they aren't going to double team Melo. He's a premier scorer in the league.

Stop being foolish.


It's humorous reading your posts

I'm not saying he's not gonna see double teams, I'm saying he will see less with amare out there. I don't care if he's a good defender melo is one of if not the best one on one player in basketball. Their are a select few that are what ppl who know basketball call "unguardable" melo is one of them. Deng does not have the strengh or speed to "shut down" melo or lebron or kobe period

I said hang with him. In the first post and others. Only time I said 'shut down' was after the game tonight, maybe I mis-worded it.

He can definitely hang with Melo.

Holding Melo to 21-24 points or so, is definitely hanging with Melo. He could easily score 30+ any night. He won't completely stop him, but he can hang with him. No doubt about it. He proved it tonight as well.

I could not careless if you question my knowledge or not. I've had people back me up. I know the game, keep thinking I don't.

Holding Melo to 21 points in 32 minutes for the scorer Melo is, is VERY respectable. Depends what your definition of shutting down is. He definitely didn't do close to enough damage to win, thus he shut him down, when he can easily take over a game and win it.

I've watched him since he was a Rookie. Holding him to 21 points is very good.

Keeping thinking its not.

Melo didn't play the last 6 minutes and he might be the best 4th quarter player in basketball. He played 32 minutes. If he played his usual 40 and/or had amare keeping the defense honest and limiting some of the help melo would easily drop 30 on him. Yes he hung with him he even outscored him today. I thought u meant he can stop melo. Melo can drop 30 on him everytime they play

Its somewhere on ur official nuggets thread. Trust me I was a huge supporter of gallo, chandler,and felton. I wanted to keep our team and get melo next year actually. To the experience what did u say about dantoni and the bulls coach(can't spell his name)

You had said that D'antoni is the best offensive coach in the NBA, which I agreed with. But I said I would take a defensive guru (meaning Thibs) over an offensive guru any day of the week.

And I thought u were saying deng is on melos level and/or he can stop him and I guess u were just saying he can make it tougher for him to get his 30

I think most ppl would but as a lifelong suns fan I wouldn't, I love that run and gun, pick and roll basketball. Melo kinda ruins that being a stop the flow iso guy though and I do wish they would put some kind of emphasis on defense as well but the suns have proven many times even with a below average team u can go far simply by scoring more than the other team. We had the best record b4, we scored the most points and we would have won it all if not for amare getting suspended against the spurs when horry knocked nash into the table heck even gentry had us a ron artest tip in from goin 7 games with the lakers in the west finals last year and we played terrible d

First, You seriously think the Suns would have beat the Celtics?

My point is the Knicks play no defense.... D'Antoni could care less about that side of the ball. As long as he is coach, the Knicks will never win an NBA title, I promise you.

I wish we finished 8th and had to play the bulls hopefully celts will continue to struggle and we pull it off but honestly I think their starting 5 is better at every position. The only matchup that are debateable are pierce/melo and garnett/stat. I'm not happy

How dare you go and insult the bulls. The best team during the regular season. I don't see the big deal with Boston since that trade but whatever. Two teams Miami Bulls two teams you don't want to face period!

Broncoyearound
04-16-2011, 07:40 PM
Wow Bulls with Home court owns the Knicks. When did the Knicks become so good please inform me on that. The bulls took care of the knicks and ended their win streak not too long ago. Plus those two times you played we had our key guys hurt. No way the knicks hang with a healthy bulls squad. We got too many big bodies down below.

Melo is overated don't care what anyone says. He's a spot up jump shooter but as far as getting to the basket he's average at best. Rose can get to the basket at will on any given night. Add that to the fact Deng gets hot or Boozer and you have a long night. Defense is easily tops in the league and they've been consistent all year even when key guys was hurt.

Bulls are a serious threat in the east this year although today they were sluggish but they have the team to take the trophy this year the knicks don't. Saying the knicks would easily bounce the bulls is a foolish opinion at best because one thing is for sure when the game is close and on the line Rose takes over. He has some Jordan in him that refusal to lose and wants the ball in his hands down the stretch and not too many people have stopped him this year so cool it with the knicks talk dude. Not a personal attack on you but obviously you haven't paid attention to them being a knicks fan.

Stats is there and that's why Rose is MVP. Dude is just sick hell he showed that today. Brought his team back with his energy and hustle.

True enough but Boozer didn't play in one of your victories actually Boozer or Noah didn't play that game so if you can count your wins ours should count as well. The knicks still need that true point guard. I'd say someone like Paul if he becomes available then y'all get scary but as you said earlier you guys are set up for the future.

Rose does that in spurts with Jordan it was just like an everyday thing. Like he was in training camp and everyone else was trying to just belong. Jordan was a moutain of an athlete.

Carmelo Anthony gives Paul Pierce a piggy back ride, and they call a foul on Anthony. Knicks got Jobbed on that one. You don't call an offensive foul like that with 20 seconds left in the game. Great shot by Allen though. No one pulls a play out of his a$$ like Rivers. That alley oop to Garnett was beautiful. Last possession by NY was interesting, and not in a good way.

ERoyal248

I don't think they should of called the foul, but it was a foul.

Ray Allen is just clutch, great shot, Doc is great at drawing up plays.

I don't get why NY didn't call up a play instead of just inbound and take a tough 3 contested...

This is a tough loss to overcome for NY.

I'm not sure that Shaq's return will help the Celtics overall. He can't do anything away from the hoop defensively. His pick and roll defense is atrocious. He doesn't move his feet either. I think the best way to utilize Shaq is to play a 2-3, and anchor him in the paint. Even then though, he's going to have to be able to rotate from one side of the paint to the other. Shaq hurt the Cavs last year. He can body up on bigs, but a smart big man can draw an easy foul on him. He's guaranteed to foul a guard driving into the paint. Offensively, he doesn't get away with any of his old moves anymore. He picks up offensive fouls with regularity. Don't forget that he's been out for a while. He may come back and have one good game, but it'll be erratic. The Cavs found a rhythm last year going into the playoffs, and Shaq killed it.

This pretty much.

Knicks still had 4-something seconds and you let West get as wide open as could be. Even if he woulda sank both FTs, they still had enough time for one decent shot, certainly better than the end result.

Melo has the game of the year more than makes up for missig Chauncey and Amare

Plus their backups played very well

And we all know Melo only plays this good when he doesnt have to share like tonight...you will never see him perform like that in rhythm along with Amare this year.

Somebody get Glen Davis out of there and this series is all but over.

I agree with the statement that Carmelo will not have another game like this for the remainder of the series. He played out of his mind tonight, mainly because his teammates gave him the ball and let him do whatever he wanted with it. He hussled defensively and I give him credit for that, but his basketball IQ once again proved to be way below average. Again, how do you not stay with West? 5 seconds can be an eternity in the NBA and Melo had the hot hand. Atleast give you and your team a chance.

People can say all they want about Boston not looking great or whatever, but if you actually know anything about this team, this is how they win. Boston was never a pretty team save for maybe the first year they formed the Big 3, since then, most of their wins have came from being nitty and gritty.

This is exactly how Boston wins games. Nothing shocking to me.

Boston takes this in 5.

Oh, and whoever said the Knicks benefited from Amare getting hurt was absolutely right. Amare was 2/9, and it wasn't like he was going to stop shooting. Thus Melo wouldn't have been able to take over like he did, thus, it would've resulted it a worse loss.

Feel bad for Billups that he had to miss the game though. Hope the Knicks let him go, so he can actually play basketball without Melo, I'm sure he wants to be done with the Melo 'me me me' kinda basketball.

Shoulda took the last shot too. Salad Bar Davis running full speed at you, and you pass it? He could have dribbled right around Davis and used him to set a pick at the same time. Then it's just Melo and Garnett at the rack. Yeah, idk how he/they let West dribble around back there for three seconds. I wonder if D'antoni reminded them that they needed to foul right there? NY must be shooting craps during time outs.

Sorry dude, like everyone's been saying, this series is over in 4 or 5 games. There's no chance the Knicks make it to 7 games, it's just ludicrous to believe they will.

Melo doesn't even care in game 3. Bad shot selections, bad turnovers, poor defense, no dedication, no teamwork, no fundamentals, no nothing.

Melo will never win a championship with that attitude, and this series and past, has been evidence of that. The future for the Knicks looks very bleak at this point. Also, say bye bye to D'Antoni after this season.

Spyder
04-22-2011, 06:09 PM
This is nothing surprising to me. Again, Carmelo is the single most overrated player in the game. He's made a career out of having one good game per playoff series and then totally shutting it down. After he gives up the rest of the team usually falls in line, it's like a chain and the top piece is always Carmelo.

People can continue to label him a Superstar all they want but he's nothing close in my books. Superstars are guys who are leaders, have fundamentals, high basketball IQs, make good decisions with and without the basketball in their hands and the list goes on.

The Knicks will likely continue to make the playoffs for as long as Carmelo and Amare are there but it'll be the typical one series and done Carmelo has grown accustomed to his entire career.

At this point I wouldn't even be surprised to see Amare demand out in a year or two, it's pretty obvious these guys will never click on the level they need to if they ever hope to win a Championship.

Sorry Knicks.

Now you need Dwight? I thought Carmelo was the answer to all your problems? You may aswell just say you guys need to build another super hero team because you'll never compete with what you have right now.

Carmelo is a selfish player who will never win anything in this league. My statement about Amare was based on the fact that after a while, people get tired of playing with #7 because all he does is worry about himself.

Look, Dwight's going to one of the teams in the series, and it's the Celtics. They want to get younger and freed up cap room by shipping Perkins(kristic and green are on expiring contracts too) so it would take far less manoeuvring regarding the cap and they can make a good push for him in the offseason. It makes sense to him, they'll pay well and he'd have a great team around him with a very good chance of picking up silverware. Celts with Howard = a frightening prospect

As for Dwill or CP3, i could see CP3 maybe but i think dwill stays put. Even then, get the three and i'd still think you'd struggle to make any considerable impact past the 1st round, it'd be miami heat syndrome except with inferior superstars.

The Bulls have struggled all series with the Pacers and could easily be 2-2 or 3-1 Pacers.

I probably wouldn't mind bringing back Jeff Van Gundy. He was a great defensive coach, but our offense was pretty bad under him. As long as it's not Mike Brown, I think I'm fine with whoever.

Mike Brown is a very good coach IMO.

knicks fans are hilarious, they spent alot of time whining about refs after game 1 and 2, then they get to ny, get more FTs than boston in game 3 and 4 and still lose by WORSE than they did in boston LOL

Rockets. A far better team than the Knicks. They managed a winning season in a TOUGH division, with not even one superstar. Sure, they didn't make the playoffs, but they're in the Western conference, the conference you'll never see sub .500 teams like the Knicks in the playoffs.
The Knicks were above .500 this season.

You usually see at least one sub .500 team make the playoffs in the yeast. The .451 Pacers repped this year. Knicks would've been 10th in the West.

Yeah he has work to do offensively, but his recipe can win games. He is still a young coach and has one of the highest winning percentages in history.

LeBron got all the credit when they won, Mike Brown took the heat when they lost. BUt the fact of the matter is without the great team defense they played they would have never gotten as far as they did all those years. And Mike Brown deserves most of the credit.

Mike Brown never coached the Cavs. Everyone in Cleveland knows it, and everyone here knows it. Actually most people didn't like Mike Brown as coach that much. Lebron was coach all those years. He decided who he wanted, and Mike Brown and Ferry tried their best to make it happen.

I feel bad for Byron Scott though, he's a good coach, but he sent himself in a huge mess, but that just shows his commitment as an NBA coach. The Cavs need a good FA and a draft, if they want to be a playoff team again.

So LeBron got Cleveland to play team D??? Ok....... ALmost any other player, I may buy it.

I do agree that LeBron owned that team, That is all Gilbert's fault. But he did not coach the team......

A melo led team doesn't get out of the first round of the playoffs now 7 out of 8 years.

Why? Because he's not a superstar.

Nuff said.

Yeah it had nothing to do with playing a superior boston team with 3 HEALTHY hall of famers and a top 5 pg in the nba or billups being hurt with 2 minutes left in game 1(had the lead) or amare missin MOST of game 2 and being at 50 percent health game 3 and 4.

There are no excuses for getting swept. There are also no excuses for being a 'Superstar' and not getting out of the first round 7 out of 8 years in the playoffs.

Melo IS NOT a Superstar. He is great scorer, and that's all he does. He's not a complete player.

He had 10 rebounds at the half game 3 he plays great D at times and he's not a bad passer either

Dude, keep making excuses for him like people did in Denver for years.

I've never been a Melo fan. He was a POS person for first 4 years or so. Then he finally cut the badass act off and started becoming respectable.

His game however is straight scoring. Nothing else. This is the FIRST year out of his career he started getting rebounds.

He is NOT a superstar. He is an allstar/star.

Not having out PG and having someone who was talked about as mvp being out for a half and at 50 percent health for 2 games against 3 all time greats and a top 5 pg isn't a good reason? Be real stop being unreasonable haters every anaylist said if we were healthy it woulda went 7

Knicks need to can D'Antoni and bring in a coach who stresses good defense and efficient half-court offense. His style of basketball won't bring any championships.

Then they also better get a ton of Defensive players around melo to make up for his lack thereof.

No Melo led team will every win a title. The only way Melo gets a title is if he's a piece on that team, and not the leader.
