Wally Szczerbiak is doing color on TV tonight, and as a fellow Cold Spring Harbor native, I could not be more proud.

Seems like when there's firing in the air, the Knicks pull a rabbit out of the hat.

Nuggets Blog Highlights!!!!

"Too bad Air Bargs isn't playing"

"Felton actually seems to give Ty a hard time because of his fatness

he makes up for his lack of quickness with just being physical with him"

"the number of people who can successfully guard melo is not a huge one"

"Ghost siting of the night: Wally Scerbiak"

"of course the corpse of Stoudemire would own the Nuggets."

"man...never thought id see faried regress this hard"

"Some games Melo passes quite a bit on this team and it rarely equates to assists."

"(Melo) should look to score first almost every chance he gets.

It’s almost always the best play in the book for this team. Force the other guys to overplay it and THEN pass. If they never over play, no real reason for him to pass."

"That Faried on Melo thing was an embarassment

oy. No way Faried can guard Melo. Total mismatch."

"Brian Shaw is ridiculous.

or blind, or stubborn"

"just put faried on shump. shump couldn’t score on air."

"If everybody on the Knicks was in their prime

And you had Phil Jackson coaching them, they’d be a 65 win team."

@Kiyan Carter  Chandler was the only guy we should have balked on, and given them who they wanted Fields

@Jerry Gee Prigs can't play the extra minutes, Murry has shown that he isn't read for primetime, and Beno is in the dog house for standing up to Woodson.

@brookdon  

Wally has found his second career imo. he's good at what he does

@Jerry Gee Wrong.We can NOT have Chandler and Shumpert on the court not able to score.


Shumps defense is way overrated.

Mr.Boots
Mr.Boots

@Jerry Gee Than he shouldn't be a starter. Specialists are role players. Everybody screams about Melo needing scoring help. The best place to give him help is on the starting five so the Knicks have a chance of jumping out on an opponent.

@Jerry Gee  

should be able to take a center off the dribble. 

 hope we trade him.

He still needs to hit wide open shots and not allow bigs to D him up one on one though

brookdon

His contract will always mean he has a spot. He takes Tyler's minutes

@Jerry Gee  Funny thing happened on the way to the forum,Woody actually played the players we have been screaming for him to play all year. It only took 50 efing games for DAW to realize this. Still fire his but

@Jerry Gee  Not as much as Felton got out played. My question is WTF was the Bucks game about. LOL

@Jerry Gee  Bad coaching, tired player(s), horrible officiating etc

@Chris I think he should still be fired though, Jackson or Jeff Van Gundy. should coach this team. or thibs

They didn't want Fields because they had Afflalo

Chris
Chris

@Kiyan Carter  He has been good, but he is playing awful this year. He gave much better effort tonight, and for the first time DAW did not overplay him. Maybe he is Biggie, and is starting to read seriously the posts?

Chris

@brookdon  And that is why DAW must go. Next coach needs ballz and Dolan stays out of his office and out of the locker room

@brookdon  

Tyler if managed correctly could be a productive knick for years. benching him now would be silly.


but I get you're contract point

That Shump line was classic lol

@newyorker9 @Chris  Yes, take any of those 3I`m trying to think out of the box struggling to think of a coach. My bride thinks Priggie would make a great coach

Chris

@Mr.Boots @Chris  Not at you my bro JG, you talking bench time. Do like Dean Smith did, you get tired and put your hand up you get back in when ready. He took you out because your dogging, you get a good rest

Mr.Boots
Mr.Boots

@Chris Ideally, Chris. But how likely or how realistic?

Chris
Chris

@Mr.Boots  You need 3 scorers on the court. Absolutely correct

Mr.Boots

@Jerry Gee Tyson has a night like tonight once every ten or twelve games. C'mon stuff like this is fantasy league stuff.

Mr.Boots
Mr.Boots

@Jerry Gee Then Melo is the sole consistent scorer on the starting five. Felton was fired up tonight because he was playing Denver and after the trade he hated backing up Lawson because he thought he was better. Don't expect Felton to repeat his performance any time soon.

@brookdon Magoo screwed up signing Stat.GG compounded the above by not using amnesty on Stat.

I agree but $$ talks. It's the only reason why the Knicks are patient with Stat
