    Yes they have! The Nets have too but it's their star players and coach not living to their potential ahhhh.

    He's the definition of a player/coach.

    Our play without Jason Kidd is actually visible.
    I actually posted something similar to this repeatedly in the NBA forum and maybe here in the off-season - Kidd and Camby would make a HUGE difference to the team. Everyone overlooked it. Hurts seeing my favorite player of all time on the Knicks but still rooting for him (except against us). That (almost) 4 point play last game was surreal.
    I survived Stephon Marbury's inability
    Jason Kidd, Kenyon Martin, Richard Jefferson era
    I survived them all leaving, a 12-70 season and not getting the #1 pick
    Mikhail Prokhorov buys the Nets
    I survived Melodrama
    Deron Williams traded here
    I survived 248 games missed due to injury, 5 d-league call-ups, 14 different lineups in ONE season, Johan Petro
    I survived Dwightmare
    I survived Avery & PJC's rotations
    THE Offseason - Success TBD

    Mike woodson just improved mike dantoni's offense by slowing it down to cut turnovers, but the way to find the ball to open shooters and the pnr's are pretty much the same. Dantoni is a genius but woody is smart copycat

    It's party time!

    Pau Gasol returned to the Los Angeles Lakers' lineup after missing eight games due to knee tendinitis. Gasol had 10 points, nine rebounds, five assists and four blocks in the Lakers' win over the Bobcats.

    "I don't find (playing with Howard) tough," Gasol said. "It's more the system right now that makes it tough at times, because (D'Antoni) wants four guys to be spread and one interior guy and it's a guard-oriented system, so that makes it tough.

    "I think there's enough looks for both of us. But again, it's not a system that you post up a lot, so we'll see. We've just got to figure it out, but if you've got two great post-up players, you've got to utilize it."

    "It's Pau who has to expand his game, and he'll expand out in the corner threes and he needs to take a couple, and we'll get him in the post when we can," D'Antoni said, emphasizing those last three words.

    The Offense is not D'Antoni. Sure he may have kept some things, but the ball moves very well and the team has great three point shooters, it's not surprising that they'd shoot that well.
    Also, Melo runs way more iso plays than a Mike D ever would implement. Kidd and Felton also play alot more off the ball.

    Did the coach really say Pau needs to step AWAY from the paint and camp out on the 3 point line? Pau Gasol?


    I can't stand stubborn Mike D. He refuses to change his system even when the ship is sinking.
    The Knicks are back!

    In regard to the Nets (and I have had the opportunity to watch much this year) it just seems deron is not right. He's playing through injury and for how it sounds he won't be 100% until next year. It kinda sound like Melo last year. I know people also laugh at all us knicks fan who kept saying you need time to work out chemistry and figure out missing pieces but its true. Small slump for the Nets but I got a feeling there will be Knicks nets playoff series which would be cool.

    that laker team is built for the triangle...........Mike is a fool. I guess Nash has to save his butt...........

    Mike prior to Nash...........failure
    Mike with Nash...........60 win team cant get to finals
    Mike after Nash..........major failure


    Mike with amazing talent in Amare, Melo, Kobe, Howard, Gasol, still a failure, now thats pathetic.

    I think you're gonna really see this team's offense take off when you swap Brewer out of the lineup. I think we're gonna have a trade at some point. If for a moment.... just a moment and I'm not saying this is EVER going to happen... what I am saying is as an example....

    Brewer brings everything we want on the court minus a consistent 3pt shot.... Imagine IF instead of Brewer you had on of the following:

    1. Gerald Wallace
    2. a HEALTHY Wilson Chandler

    Basically you get virtually the same defense and rebounding but with better offense. Shumpert doesn't provide the rebounding aspect... Amare changes the entire offensive scheme by sliding Melo back into the 3 spot.

    I don't know what it would take but I feel like some trade will need to be made to balance out the roster. Its a shame that Chandler is hurt and has the contract that he does. I hope basketball minds reading this understand I'm not crapping on Brewer, the dude has been great. I just forsee the storm coming and just thinking ahead as to what the BEST piece would be on the court.
    AS MJ WOULD SAY " IS THIS SIGNATURE IN VIOLATION NOW..."

    Brewer is being streched beyond his capabilities right now. Playing too many minutes and can't focus on his role. We don't need super scorers at every position. Shump will come back and Brewer will get a reduced role and by virtue he will become alot more efficient.

    We need Brew vs Miami

    I still don't get what the Lakers were thinking. Passing over Jax for this clown
    Don't worry about what people think, they don't do it very often

    So Tired of Melo Ball

    This might seem like a RIDICULOUS idea and I'm gonna hide behind a chair when I say this because I think people might throw bricks at me....

    I wouldn't mind trading Shumpert, Copeland, Brewer, Camby in some combination if it got us

    Kawhi Leanord from San Antonio

    or

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist from Bobcats

    or

    Paul George from Indiana

    OR and I will continue to stand by this as much as people get annoyed with it:

    You trade Amare for Josh Smith in ATL. That is the deal that HAS to happen at some point. Smith does EVERYTHING Brewer does and more & makes us better rebounding and defensively and still lets Melo play PF.

    PG Felton
    SG Kidd
    SF Smith
    PF Melo
    C Chandler

    boom roster is balanced and good to go.
