Your cable bill just went up 25 percent. LOL Bii Bii Q 5pts Enough excuses Mike!!! Let's see the results Uncle Phil. andthenjohnsaid 5pts if you are only 25 and can give me 20 and 10 in your sleep in todays nba.. nothing about you is overratedthis is all Robert Fristachi 5pts Can I come to meet Phil Jackson? Glen Amato 5pts Sick of this D Bag and the talk allready......second coming of Christ here or what????? darealeric 5pts In Phil Jackson we have now set into action the opportunity for Carmelo Anthony to become the ultimate "coach killer"... James Piccoli 5pts Do not understand this move. The New York Knicks need someone to come in and be in charge of basketball opeations, but Phil Jackson is not the right man for this particular job. Just do not think he will work the 24/7 necessary. In his last years on the Los Angeles Lakers bench, Phil did not even want to make road trips. Will he be working from New York, or Montana and/or Los Angeles? Just do not think he will be totally invested in the job. On the other hand, at $15 Million per year, James Dolan is totally invested in Phil Jackson. MeloStat301 5pts PHIL JAX....is...BACK! kofi 5pts www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjFv-1kt-w8&feature=youtube_gdata_playerPhil interview on Triangle Offense. Derrick Asa 5pts Good someone tell Guitar Jimmy to back off. NichoLas DoshNer 5pts money talks and the Knicks are nothing but a joke. kofi 5pts I've been trying to post an interview with Phil Jackson by the Huffington Post, in the interview he explains part of reason he wants to get back involved in basketball is, because the "Triangle" has been misunderstood. For whatever reason my link is "pending" whatever that means? The interview is on YouTube, it's titled "Phil Jacksons Triangle Offense players had to play all the roles" With that being said I believe he's going to hire a coaching staff that can implement his "Side Triangle Offense" try to check out the interview....it's really interesting. KnickelusKnickleby 5pts So Dolan just single handedly curved the KFFL Rally..he's definitely on TKB often right @OLDKNICK ? Anthony Pierri 5pts He's coming home! Matthew Mann 5pts Oh my God. Just wrap this up and announce it already. This has been the most long, drawn out story in…ah, who am I kidding? It wouldn't be the Knicks without some unnecessary drama. Ryan Fleckner 5pts Dude best be coaching this team next year johneco 5pts To those who want to get rid of everyone, tank, and sign 3 top FAs in 2015, from this list:(Rondo/Kyrie/M.Gasol/Hibbert/Dragic/Aldridge/T.Parker/Love)Choose your favorite 3.Is that a championship team that can beat Miami or OKC? No. knickgirl35 5pts @darealeric Your banter is droll and your commentary pedantic.You are not smart enough for this blog. Find another derelict! franktkb 5pts Who would you have hired? darealeric 5pts Just as long as the rally gets cancelled, that's all that matters... knickgirl35 5pts Phil Jackson is the right man. He will hire the right people to get the job done and he will have say in all things Knicks. His decision making and leadership skills are impeccable. PHIL IS A WINNER and he will bring that here. xmenreturn 5pts @Kiyan Carter I agree with u on! Even Melo doesn't deserve Howard. Noah will be the defensive player of the year imo and that's the only place I see Melo going other than the Heat which is very unlikely. lindro88 5pts Money talking has nothing to do with the Knicks. It talks everywhere. MeloStat301 5pts Eat it..LOL. MeloStat301 5pts @kofi Don't post links with http://...remove it, and the link should post fine. VerySilentJay 5pts @carl hill I hate bandwagon fans. lindro88 5pts @KnickelusKnickleby @OLDKNICK Rally seems pointless now. 50 people asking Dolan to do what he's about to do. lindro88 5pts forget that idea. VerySilentJay 5pts No chance. MeloStat301 5pts @johneco Healthy Rondo/ Kyrie Hibbert and Aldridge? Hmmm...that darn near rivals heat and okc..def better than pacers. VerySilentJay 5pts @johneco 1. Kyrie - RFA - Cleveland keeps him.2. Love - Player option. soft, overrated, b¨tchy primadonna who can't carry a team and is already talking about La La Land - pass 3. Rondo - I'll take him in a second if we have a coach who doesn't implement the triangle or else his talents will go to waste.4. LA - any day of the week, and has the bonus of being a perfect fit in a hypothetical triangle.5. Hibbert - player option. Given Indy's situation and the money he's getting, why would he leave?6. Gasol - An option, but I don't know how dominant he'll be by then. His future hinders upon next season's performance.7. Dragic - Player option. His status will depend upon Phoenix's situation within the WC.8. Parker - Since he'll be older, he won't command max money (though it won't stop him from asking), and if SA can't keep up their high level, there's a chance he'll want to leave, especially considering Manu is a FA as well that year.No chance at getting 3 though. The new CBA was strictly structured to avoid this from happening. Severe paycuts would have to occur from every player involved, and I just don't see that happening. BDS 5pts @johneco Kyrie/Hardaway/Top Draft Pick/Love/HibbertOr hold off on one FA for one year and make a run at Durant.Maybe you don't beat OKC now, Miami won't be Miami by the time this plan happens xmenreturn 5pts @johneco LBJ and he wasn't on your list. darealeric 5pts Jerry West, rally on VerySilentJay 5pts @MeloStat301 Trolls. Probably a BK bandwagon fan. kofi 5pts Ok lindro88 5pts @VerySilentJay @carl hill Bandwagon, usually means good things are happening. I'll take some bandwagon fans. VerySilentJay 5pts @MeloStat301 There's no chance at getting 3. None whatsoever. Poeple need to get this clear.Every single one of these players will be looking for the max. That along the 15+ mil that will be on the books along with the uncertainty off what the cap will look like.No chance.And of course, this hypothetical choice implies that Melo won't be around. #Knickstape 5pts @PhilJackson @johneco Another half a decade down the tubes. lindro88 5pts @VerySilentJay @MeloStat301 I won't even give him that much credit. lindro88 5pts @VerySilentJay @lindro88 I think you are missing my point. NY is a big city. Lot of people don't watch any team unless they are winning. If the bandwagon is full, means the team is winning. Doesn't effect die hards like you. VerySilentJay 5pts @lindro88 I get where you're going.I was just brought up to stick with your team under every possible circumstance. lindro88 5pts @VerySilentJay @lindro88 @carl hill Everyone isn't going to watch every night, or lose sleep over the team. If the bandwagon is full it means things are rocking. That's all I mean. VerySilentJay 5pts @lindro88 @VerySilentJay @carl hill No true loyalty. The second things go wrong they bounce and find a winning situation.Sorry, can't respect that. MeloStat301 5pts @VerySilentJay @MeloStat301 Yea I know this, I was just responding to his question of picking three, those three would absolutely rival an okc/Miami. xmenreturn 5pts @knicks50 @xmenreturnWOW! You're forget everything once the short bus pulls up and race for your backseat. HypoCrit_calNYKfans 5pts @xmenreturnI'll remember you said that! xmenreturn 5pts @redhorse @xmenreturnSo do I but we can't even get into the playoffs! I wanted the Ewing teams to MJ's teams, Bird Teams and etc.It's not about the perfect especially with players moving more about now.It's about winning and if my team wins, I'm talking sh#t to all those who have belittled my teams over the many years! Now you come around and want to put more stipulations on winning.That's like telling Mr. Ed that you have to run on your hind legs only to win he Kentucky Derby. Just win Ed! Kick the other horses if ya have to! redhorse 5pts @xmenreturn @redhorse I will still root for the knicks even if we get lbj..But im just asking what happened to the competetiveness with players and fans... I want melo to beat lbj not join forces with him... I dont know thats just my opinion.. xmenreturn 5pts @redhorse @xmenreturnWOW! You're just Mr. Ed. I root for my team. If we get LBJ, I will still root for my team. We have Melo, I still root for my team. We have Felton, I still root for my team. Got that Ed? redhorse 5pts @xmenreturn @redhorse I will thanks... U can keep dreaming also that lbj will come here... I will be hoping he wont... redhorse 5pts @xmenreturn @redhorseso why dont u just root for miami if u wanna win so bad... xmenreturn 5pts @lindro88 @xmenreturn@thatsagoodpoint Yep i agree but if Melo was central to Phil's plan to build around, Phil would surely talk to Melo before signing any deal especially knowing Melo has an opt out. Did you hear and see how Melo sounded when asked has he talked to Phil. That the image of a man who thinks he's being disrespected and maybe listening to the voices who says he's not Phil type of player. By not hearing from Phil, this would surely lend some concerns that it maybe true. We shall see but this will be big one way or the other. lindro88 5pts @redhorse @xmenreturn No it wouldn't be cheap or watered down. Lebron is gonna play somewhere, why not here. lindro88 5pts @redhorse @#Knickstape @xmenreturn @thatsagoodpoint @johneco I'd rather not spend years losing to the same guy like the teams in the 90's if Lebron wanted to come to NY, I'd be a happy man. lindro88 5pts @xmenreturn @thatsagoodpoint Phil is bigger than Melo. Phil doesn't have to get Melo's blessing. That's a good thing. Melo seems oblivious to all of this. xmenreturn 5pts @redhorse @xmenreturnYIKES! Watered down! You don't have to root for him. I will do it for everyone to get us a ring. Keep that pride strong trying to win a ring with Melo beating a LBJ team. I'm tired of losing and some of you have a stipulation of getting a ring. This is not food stamps, you have to earn or win a ring. There are no guarantees getting one. MeloStat301 5pts @thatsagoodpoint @xmenreturn@johneco Why get into that again?? LOL...lef the door open on that. HypoCrit_calNYKfans 5pts @redhorse This is the "age" of suckers, tricks, and slurp-ers! What your reading are a bunch of slurp-ers who will do practically anything to win. Even choosing to go as far as getting rid of their "self respect" if it means they will be able to kiss LeFlop's sneakers! redhorse 5pts @xmenreturn @redhorse wouldnt the chip be watered down tho?? Yea sure Id love to win but im sorry i cannot root for lebron... I hope it dont happen xmenreturn 5pts @redhorse Well I don't have enough years left to wait for Melo to beat a LBJ team int he playoffs. You folks really do like losing or just the imaginary thought of winning a certain way. Sure there is a play to be made for LBJ. I have went of this too many times. redhorse 5pts @#Knickstape @xmenreturn@thatsagoodpoint@johnecoYou guys really want lebron??? I cant stand him And I want melo to beat him not join him....Where did the competetiveness gone with u guys??? Lebron really changed things HypoCrit_calNYKfans 5pts @xmenreturnWould you sell your soul to win slurp-er! #Knickstape 5pts @xmenreturn @thatsagoodpoint @johneco That will never happen. I see Kobe coming here and playing with Melo before LeBron comes here or Melo leaves. xmenreturn 5pts @knicks50 @xmenreturnDude, I'm about winning. We haven't won since the early 70s and I have no time for anything that gets in the way of winning a ring. U proud of this year? HypoCrit_calNYKfans 5pts @xmenreturnLOL, At what a "proud slurper" you are! Next your gonna be saying how much you want LeFlop to be your baby"s daddy! xmenreturn 5pts @thatsagoodpoint You better get Phil to call the dude he plans to build around. Does Phil knows Melo can opt out? Nice to have your central guy still waiting by the phone while u sign a huge deal!If Phil is that dumb, we are in big trouble! lol xmenreturn 5pts @thatsagoodpoint @xmenreturn@johnecoLOL Melo will be around Chicago. NY will be open to be a team for a King to offer LBJ.
