You guys are *****es. We can win this. We know how to win games. PHX doesn't. That goes a long way.
The value of elite scoring ability, by Phil Jackson:
"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
It's not like Melo is pulling a Amar'e Stoudemire and refuses to play in the playoffs.. We've seen it in Boston series the other season and the Miami series.. Amar'e is the *****.. to say it lightly. Melo is a warrior with all the abuse he takes every game. He needs time to heel.

About what I expect to see tonight in terms of minutes, can't see Kidd playing much more than that. Not very good, but it may be enough to beat Phoenix.
I'm personally excited to see how we perform tonight without Melo and Ray. We can't change it so why ***** about it. White's getting a chance to show what he's got and we'll see Copeland again. Knicks got this!!
I know that Sheed has a chronic injury but when will he be back?
Ewing dunk past Mourning
-HORRIBLE out of timeouts
-Too many 3's
-PF is pushed to the 3 point line
-Doesn't play BIGS
-Dog Houses players
-HORRIBLE management of players and motivation
Go out on your front lawn, take a dump and see how long your neighbors will talk about that little slice of life. That's what Mike D did to this franchise./QUOTE]
forgive me but your dreaming, Kobe Missed 8 games last yr(you know 66 game season) and in 2009 missed 9 games
and being a realist and not overly positive, you think they actually go together?
How about a pessimist?
Now I can't fly my airplane
Yeah, people think that these athletes are made out of steel.. They are humans too.. Goodness.. After that high ankle sprain that Melo went through and the collision with Camby.. We should be thankful that the injuries weren't worse then they looked.
They can't afford all these guys out. I don't know how it's not frustrating you, but it's frustrating me.
This team is probably the most injury prone in the NBA at this point. Yes, we're deep, but with the guys out right now, it's TOUGH to win with this team.
Melo, Amare, Shumpert, Felton and Wallace? That's 4/5th's of your normal starting lineup.
Also, if you look at someone like Manu Ginobili or Jason Terry, those guys usually don't go over about 34 minutes in a game. It's too hard to get somebody in more than that when they're on the bench for at least 4 minutes to start each half. Why would Woodson not start JR in a game when he needs him to play at least 36 minutes? He's severely handicapping himself by essentially building in a limit to JR's playing time, makes no sense.
Yes we can afford having all these players out..... It's one game out of an eighty-two game season.. Calm down.. If they played and got their injuries worse and were out for a longer period of time it would hurt the team even more...
