    That's pretty much it. And of course losing Sheed has hurt our overall depth.
    I'm not selling, only sharing my opinion

    Felton is open and in practice he is shooting, now he's open and missing and defenses have adjusted and we have not.

    When a player hurt hand or not is missing the ocean and teams are leaving him and Brewer wide open, you then as a coach practice an alternative and do different set ups,

    So how do you implement new setups when there are no practices?

    If you never buy then how can you sell?

    Practice can shore up the defensive miscues we've been having on the reg this month. Better defense opens up the court in the transition game and makes everything easier, including shoot the ball. It can also allow our guys to have extended sessions with the shooting coach which can only help them get out of their respective funks.

    "This is a guy, we recognize his talent, and his skill is the kind of skill and talent that gets you through playoff games where things get sticky, grind-out, and basketball becomes a force game and suddenly you need to have a player who has the capabilities of scoring with someone hanging on them in a situation thatís critical. Heís one of those players, one of the few players who can do that.Ē

    Thats a good point too. Practice will allow for us to prepare some counters to the D completing dropping off the pick and roll and us not being able to exploit it yet. When teams do that to Rondo they have counter sets that were gonna need to implement because we haven't done anything since the pick and roll stopped working after the Nets game where Tyson went crazy.

    I agree with a lot of pundits that say teams have adjusted better to the way the Knicks are playing. No more easy 3s, no more pick and rolls etc. Of course shooting has a lot to do with it. Thats true, but that's why increase practice time will be paramount. Sports is all about adjusting to what your opponent is doing. Mike is skilled in this area I believe, with more practice time I have little doubt the Knicks will be back to their early season form if not better.
