Carmelo doesn't get calls, but that's besides the point. Where the hell are our offensive sets? Where are our defensive sets? Why are we playing pickup at this point? Why don't we try to get some easy buckets with our veteran savvy? Why isn't Marcus Camby in the game?

So many questions.

If Drum was starting this season he would easily be averaging at least 15 pts + 10 reb.

It's ridiculous how we play so much better as a team with him on the court but Lawrence Frank continues to not start him. First time this season he left Drum finish the game.

knicks need to attack the rim more and not just be a jump shooting team. they were never going to keep winning relying on jumpers. Also doesn;t help that the knicks defense has been awful the past few games and camby rides the pine.

Why did D'Antoni sit Pau down the stretch? "I was thinking I'd like to win this game, that's what I was thinking."

D'Antoni said if these players can't keep pace, then they have to find players who can.

Bye Pau

I didn't get upset. You repeatedly said Knicks aren't a top 2 team in the East and that Boston will be 2nd seed. I'm just seeing if you'll put your money where your mouth is.

i think boston will grab the 2nd seed. i dont need to sig bet that. i could care less if the knicks get the 1 seed. only 1 other team in the east i worry about and that's boston

Any fans (other than NYK fans) watch the Knicks game tonight?

Curious if Chandler looks as bad to you this season as he does to the majority of KNicks fans so far.

Also -- Woodson refusing to use Camby as we continually get outrebounded.

These are just a few of the things troubling me lately with this team

I honestly wouldn't read too much into that other than the fact that D'Antoni was most likely trying to send Pau a message. For the last couple of years, he's had way too many games where he's been flat out awful. There's really no excuse for it if you ask me.

Dwight Howard I understand, for it's obvious that he isn't right. But Gasol has no excuse in my eyes.

Yept. Though most did agree he was one of the best offensive centers in the league. Which he has shown he is. He's also averaging 6 boards at the moment.

How did you like Brook tonight? no credit for him?

Without his offense we would not have won and he was the Nets closer as usual. Has been our best and most consistent player. Improving defensively though still not good. Rebounding pathetically as usual.

Overall though i am happy. Brook Lopez has been a top 5 SG this year no question.

You sir are in love with Asik hahahaa. Although, I don't blame you, his performance was great tonight.

I am. That kid is all go, no quit, big nuts, all day, stomp all over your ***, and frustrate our offense till you cry.

If i could combine him and Brook i would cry happy tears. Would be the best C in the game

Brook is improving defensively though and i love how much more aggressive he is this year.

He usually plays with Humphries or Reggie Evans you got to admit they are two of the best rebounders in the game and go after every board. Its not his fault.

Asik was definitely very good today, but Chandler was ****. His defense has been putrid the past few games. Even when his box score looks fine his defense doesn't.

Eh idk about MVP season. He has been their most consistent, and most important player. However his lapses on D and lack of rebounding/toughness hurts us a lot in games.

Just because his offense saves us throughout the game does not erase how much he and the rest our bigs are hurting us defensively.

Our team defense is solid lately though

Not an excuse imo

We are below average rebounding wise as a team. What Reggie and Hump are doing is preventing us from being dog **** bad rebounding wise. If Brook starts doing his part on the boards we would be a top rebounding team.

Asik is one of those physical guys that take you out of your game. He was all over Chandler and frustrating him all night.

I agree that Tyson has looked bad though. Injured maybe?

I hope so, because his defense has completely fallen off. Injury would at least be some sort of explanation where Tyson can regain his defense prowess over time (once the injury heals).

I said all last year he was never that good...didnt deserve DPOY...all this talk about him being top 3 centers in the league and an all star is sad. He is a role player.

He's honestly been that good, I'm not saying he's going to win if but so far Brook has been fairly impressive.

Brook definitely is improving on the defensive end, dare I say he's developing somewhat of a "mean streak", I did say somewhat.

Asik is exactly what I'd want in a center if we had a scoring PF, but unfortunately we do not. He's got a ton of potential and is only 26.

No mandatory C in the ballot anymore. Brook Lopez will not make the AS game but if the C was still a mandatory position then definitely

Ah I never even realized that was gone. If thats the case I'd agree, his chances of making the all star game are minimal no matter what type of season he has.
