OLDKNICK 5pts I am glad sandro is back from angola, since that means he will be on tonight to comment on the knick's win especially since carmelo was hitting the winning shots. M&M; Consultants 5pts Shumpert knee is fine. just a sprain. He's been walking around the locker room, OLDKNICK 5pts HAS EVERYONE NOTICED THAT SHUMPERT'S INJURIES ARE ALWAYS SELF-INFLICTED ??? Jerry Gee 5pts It's my belief that with young players you have to instill confidence in them ...and it a continuing education...you can't make them uncomfortable looking over their shoulder if they're gonna get hooked for making a bad play or taking a bad shot...what a coach is suppose to do is at the least work one play for each of his players and drill it into them during practice....Woodson only knows "Iso Melo" that's it...and therein lies the problem Buck50 5pts Again i ask, now what? What do wedo guys? Felton is a backup not a starter, we know that! So now what? rgm891 5pts New Post up Fellas!!!!!!!!! kneggyknik 5pts As I suspected...fo will not be able to make any moves. Dolan vetoed the only chance we had at getting a legit pg. Seth Nadler 5pts knicks continue to be better with less Buck50 5pts I wish we would of signed Earl Barron Bobby Brown, instead of Beno n Cole Jerry Gee 5pts @M&M; Consultants if anything it looked more like a hammy than a knee Chris 5pts @OLDKNICK exactly rignt. he's so phomy and not scoring on purpose. they should cut him. SuperDuper 5pts @Jerry Gee Shump is not a rookie. Woodson doesn't need to hold his hands in practice. Dolan doesn't have to tell him he won't be traded so he can get his confidence. THJ practices his shooting. Shump practices his rap songs. It was Shumpert who decided to not play in the Summer league. Buck50 5pts Exactly. Which is why i miss JLin, because he made everybody better! MeloStat301 5pts @Jerry Gee this is dumb...Copeland...THJR...Tyler...have/had NO problem getting acclimated...SHUMP NEEDS SPECIAL PLAYS?? GET OUTTA HERE.Shump played great down the stretch last year and in the playoffs...face it..he regressed this year...big time. MAYBE a change of scenery can help him...but he needs to make the best of his minutes like tyler and hardaway jr..and Copeland last year. rgm891 5pts @Jerry Gee Don't forget the switch genius defensive play call. C0P0 5pts @kneggyknik Well, the die has been cast. Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a concussion inducing ride. StraightShot 5pts @kneggyknik No Jordan Hill --> Holiday/Teague/LawsonNo Billups' amnesty --> CP3No Bargnani trade --> Rondo (or at least Lowry)No Dolan's pride --> Lowry SuperDuper 5pts @Buck50 I wish we signed Metta World Peace. Ohh, we did. rgm891 5pts @Buck50 Woodson would never play them. OLDKNICK 5pts @Chris @OLDKNICK I have said this since before last season he just seems so incredibly awkward out there with the ball. If he ever had skill he lost it Jerry Gee 5pts @Buck50 Jeremy is a warrior...fearless Armand N Berdynaj 5pts @Buck50 Like he is in Houston? getting beat by Beverly? Jerry Gee 5pts @MeloStat301 maybe because the vets were uplifting...it wasn't because of Woodson..so don't be fooled Jerry Gee 5pts @MeloStat301 so I guess that by your comment you're lumping all players into one category...it's your job as a coach to be able to know what makes your player tick...not everyone handles B/S the same..and it's not about pampering either ... IMO Woodson demoralize his youngsters more than anything else...he did it with Copeland, Novak, Murry, and the second year Pablo...lol Jerry Gee 5pts @rgm891 @Jerry Gee lol Jerry Gee 5pts @SuperDuper @Buck50 who's that? Jerry Gee 5pts @Armand N Berdynaj @Buck50 36-17 stop it Kiyan Carter 5pts But Timmy had an attitude with Pablo when he tried to tell him somethin so stop it u just want your point to say melo is weak stop it Jerry Gee 5pts @SuperDuper @Jerry Gee@OLDKNICK maybe so..this is something I've always said about this entire team...IMO this entire team is mentally weak...Junior and Pablo are a couple of players that seems as if they're breaking the mold Jerry Gee 5pts @Elvis Maduro @SuperDuper prior endorsement commitment ... contractually binding ..he had to go sell addidas SuperDuper 5pts @Jerry Gee @SuperDuper@OLDKNICK Then Shump is softer then Eddy Curry. OLDKNICK 5pts @Jerry Gee @SuperDuper @OLDKNICK Unless he paid you!!!!!!!!! LOL! Jerry Gee 5pts @SuperDuper @Jerry Gee@OLDKNICK I don't trust Dolan..do you? if he told me to run I'd keep walking Elvis Maduro 5pts @SuperDuper Actually he was in China SuperDuper 5pts @Jerry Gee @OLDKNICK@SuperDuper LOL. Dolan tried that when he went to the locker room to tell him nobody is getting traded. Needless to say, it didn't work. Jerry Gee 5pts @OLDKNICK @SuperDuper@Jerry Gee I think he can do all the above...IMO what's lacking is confidence....and IMO the lack of it is caused by the fearless leader Mr. Potatohead Woodson SuperDuper 5pts @Jerry Gee @SuperDuper When they are tired, bring in Shump. He can do well as a defensive sub. Jerry Gee 5pts @SuperDuper @Jerry Gee ok ..so in the Knicks case start the best 5 and then what do do when they're tired?IMO every good team needs someone coming off the bench that yes can start but instead anchors the second unit to keep continuity ... second unit ha to be able to do something OLDKNICK 5pts @SuperDuper @Jerry Gee I agree but what is it that shump does well??? I mean he cant dribble, he cant shoot, he cant penetrate, he cant finish, he cant pass.His defense is really not that great anymore! SuperDuper 5pts @Jerry Gee @SuperDuper Because most teams start their 5 best position players. If we had a capable starting shooting guard (THJ), ok. somebody better then JR then ok. Shump is a defensive sub not a starter. He isn't even a 6th man. Those guys usually know how to shoot. Shump never knew how to shoot the ball going back to his college days. Before Woody even came to the picture Jerry Gee 5pts @SuperDuper @Jerry Gee but Shumpert is the better defender...and BTW why would you want to start after winning 6th MOY award...settle into your role and embrace the team concept SuperDuper 5pts @Jerry Gee @SuperDuper Why not. He can't shoot. JR is better then him. There is no coach that would start Shump over JR except Woody. Shump should learn how to pass. It could only increase his value. Jerry Gee 5pts @SuperDuper B/S Woodson wanted him to play PG over the summer so that he could give the SG spot to his son JR SuperDuper 5pts @Jerry Gee @MeloStat301 Woodson tried to get him to play in the Summer League to work on his game. He decided he didn't need to work on his game. He was busy making rap songs MeloStat301 5pts @Jerry Gee @MeloStat301 That's shumps problem then if that's the case...not the coach. Jerry Gee 5pts @MeloStat301 @Jerry Gee you referenced Shumpert play last year v. this year MeloStat301 5pts @Jerry Gee @MeloStat301 what vets? Don't be stupid...hardaway and tyler are on this years squad. Jerry Gee 5pts @MeloStat301 @Jerry Gee he was so subbing Copeland faster than what he's doing with Pablo...and it was the same with Novak....this guy has a tendency to take guys out the game at IMO the wrong time...as soon as they make a couple buckets...he hooks them MeloStat301 5pts @Jerry Gee @MeloStat301 No he didn't..cope played good for us when he can...so has tyler...hardaway..novak...your making things up now. Pablo has been decent this year....out of all those players...shump is the only one who has regresses.
