Just watch the game in full. Woody still make idiotic lineup moves even in victory. Just wanted to say that. Guy is not the man for the job. Hold a clipboard

Hey Biggie are we running the Triangle Friday and Sun?  If he does, maybe Woody will run the Obtuse Triangle on Friday and maybe the Isosceles Triangle on Sunday.

@Isaac Miller The Knicks can beat anyone if everyone plays like they are capable of playing.  Melo ALWAYS cancels out Lebron, Wade is hurting, Allen is not the same, etc.  yes, we can beat them!

@ciceasnice thats what I like to hear! but realistically I see us going down in 7. we are capable but dont have that killer instinct or winning mentality this year.

@Biggie Yo Biggie, why we can't we work together to help Woody keep his job?

How about Woody incorporating the new bi-Triangular system as I described earlier. The he can add his switching technology to it to allow us to move between the 2 triangle methods.

How's that?

@zebeto @dagawd JR has been playing awesome since Phil arrived - last night was a great example.

JR is the kind of swing player that can transform us internally - if someone screws his head on straight he has the talent to be a superstar.  Just having Phil watching seems to have helped him.

@xmenreturn  

Maybe Phil wasn't that direct, but something along those lines, lol:


“It’s a book in which I address the fact that Michael Jordan’s a leading scorer, he’s got the capability of being a terrific scorer, but that he’s got to get his other teammates involved and he’s got to make it a team game,” Jackson said during an interview on Bloomberg Radio’s “Taking Stock” with Pimm Fox and Carol Massar.

@Biggie I stand by my statements!  I don't see triangles and books like you. But i will play along at times!

@BigChiefTriangle @Biggie Phil wouldn't talk to Melo before deciding to sign here but now he has given Melo a book! 

On the first page of this book, Phil writes in large letters

"PASS THE DA#N BALL PLAYA!"

Next page

"THE END!"

@Biggie  

Are you referring to Phil's indirect recommendation to Carmelo (expressed through the media)?  Right after last year's playoff knock-out right?

@ Biggie Can you post a link? Cool I'll check it out.

@johneco @zebeto@dagawd I agree..but JR has already hit his peak ...and if he continues to play like this will be one of our best trade pieces into possibly upgrading the knicks major need ....PG position ....

..

...no need to have 3 SG's that need minutes .......shump/thjr I could see as safe , except if needed for a rondo type pg trade in the future .

@firebaldy @xmenreturnTrue but he's the big dog on the team and i would think he would be working with Chandler to keep the locker room together and on point.

@xmenreturn @firebaldy  Yeah. But I think he feels like since he never won a chip he doesn't have enough creds to go off his teammates.

@firebaldy It's shame Melo hasn't taken a more leadership role from the beginning.  This is HIS team......well at least before Phil came.

@xmenreturn @firebaldy @manchu  Melo is coaching. Did you see when Woody wanted to put Felton back in the game and Melo pointed to Ray's back and said his back his back or something like that and Murry went in?
