Quote: Anthony on loss to the Hawks

“The frustration has definitely sunk in…just the fact that we’re losing the same way, over and over.”

The Knicks have lost games since Pre-Season and in the same way, over and over again. 

Shame they can't or won't find anyone brave, desperate, or dumb enough, to come and coach this "team" for the rest of the season. LOL


Melo is gone at the end of this season and The Knicks will have nothing in the wake of his departure. Only failure for years to come. What a huge waste  of our time this has all been. F'k Dolan, The Knicks and the entire organization. They don't deserve the loyalty and or money the fan base have given them. For which, I personally given them thousands.


Last year, was the best year I had in decades. I'm not going to wait every 20 years for something magical to happen. Another 40 for an NBA championship.

From this day forth, I pledge to crap on The Knicks until, at the minimum, they get to the ECF. Period. NOTHING or no record will be good enough until then and that's the way it should be from all of the fans. The most celebrated team in the NBA, is nothing more a multi-billion dollar marketing scam. The Knicks don't deserve our love. Win a F'n title you bums. Hell, win a F'n game. 


It's hard to fathom this season will end well and doesn't seem unreasonable for me to call it a wrap. So I will. This one is done. 


I overwhelmingly suggest to go out and enjoy yourselves. 

The Knicks have wasted enough of your time.

Sucks to say this as a huge Melo fan since college, but WoodRow has no idea how to use him, as coach K did in the Olympics, which was pretty much catch and shoot.... WoodRow musta been busy listening to guitar Jimmy's cd, and didn't toon into the Olympic Games....... For this, I'm starting to feel Melo is a goner:(

Melo never looks for the open guy. Come on sun. And Tyson has 14mill with no offensive moves but an alley-oop...hurts to be a fan right now

Stars get paid to make plays, not just baskets. Draw the double team on purpose and look for the open man!!

Melo needs to pass the ball and go to the hole. If you know the team statistics, why do you keep playin the same way? Make the game easy by passing and taking the high % shot....Jesus Shuttleswworth

I can't believe that i keep WATCHING!!! What's wrong with me? There's a difference between being a loyal fan and just a glutton for punishment. They go out of their way to find new angles to losing. It is depressing. Woodsen's substitution continue to confound and confuse me. The 4th Quarter is all that matters and they just fade and choke. It truly seems there is a dark cloud over this team - scouts at the game to look over Shumpert and he hits a sweat patch on the floor and hurts his knee. Boom. No trade at the deadline. Sheesh. Please - someone hire a gypsy woman and reverse this curse asap!

The Knicks problem is they build a lead with ball movement, and once they have it every starts going one on one trying to pad their stats and they slowly loose the game…..game management just another thing Woodson doesn't understand

Im pretty sure we have had more denver fans tuning into our games than knicks fans lately. Sad.

Just a sad, embarassing season.


Just when I was forgetting what it meant to be laughingstock...it's back all over again.

IF DOLAN LOVES WOODY THEN IS ALL THIS BULLSNOT SPECULATION OVER ?????

The Nets are attention wh**** for the Collins signing.

Knicks should have had a firesale (everyone but Melo/Timmy/Tyler) including Woodson over the ASB. Bringing the same team back was a terrible idea.

I don't think Melo loves Woodson and he'd love to be willing to pick the next coach, it's just that he knows the roster is far and away the issue with the team and I'm sure Dolan is selling him on the idea that 1. There aren't many options out there 2. With the 6/1/77 coming off the books, he will be able to assemble a new team

If Melo truly wants to win, he would sign with Cleveland for 18 millions. That's a team in great position to become a contender with Melo and irving.

Instead of "they" you probably mean to say Melo...

@Knicks_Fanatic  We're completely fckd.

The season is officially over.

The team has quit on Woodson, Woodson has turned into the worst coach in the NBA.

We've become a laughingstock once again.


What a waste of a decent roster that could've made the playoffs.

Who cares? WoodRow won't play them anyways

It would be the ultimate irony if these two ring wearing, bearing veterans make it to the playoffs and we don't.

Nets were chasing Glen Davis as their 1st option, but he went to the Clips.  Collins was next available.

@brookdon  

We have essentially the same team coming back next year. If the problem is the roster, you might have a hard time  convincing a decent coach to come in before 2015.

@knickster  This has to be the dumbest post of the year.  Worse than Biggie saying we were gonna get the #3 seed and then betting me $1500 on it.

@Knicks_Fanatic  You can place money on the fact that they will get a strong chance to fight for one while our team enjoys watching the playoffs on TV.

@Knicks_Fanatic  You probably already know I could care less but just in case you were curious.....  THERE ARE MORE THINGS THAT NEED TO BE FIXED THAN THIS!!!!

LMAO!

There are better C's out there than Jason Collins. This was all for media attention. Jason Collins was awful two years ago, and is likely even worse now.

brookdon

Not really. We convinced MD, who was a high profile guy at the time, to come in and coach when he knew we'd suck for years to come. And it's still MSG. We offer the money, people will come

knickster

I agree with you - because most players care more about their own career and money that they care about winnning. If you are concerned with BASKETBALL matters only, cleveland as a team would offer melo a shorther path to success that NY could ever offer.

knickster
knickster

Why? because it deals with the possibility of melo leaving?

knickster
knickster

Sure. Golden state is under the cap, too. But cleveland offers everything the Knicks are lacking: a home-grown superstar in irving, a solid player in Deng (if they can sign him to a decent contract), draft picks, a lot of cap room, etc. they would easily make the second round of the playoffs next year with irving, melo and deng. And then they would be in great shape to improve further in the coming years....

@VerySilentJay @Knicks_Fanatic 

Sirius/XM NBA channel had a San Antonio reporter on and he said the Spurs need a SF to replace Leonard. He thought either Granger or MWP would be looked at, if Austin Daye doesn't mess.

brookdon
brookdon

No doubt he can do that, but they could have also signed Desagna Diop, Aaron Gray, Kyle Fesenko, Kurt Thomas, Johan Petro etc, all of whom have had better careers and most of whom are younger than Jason Collins. Collins made 1/6 shots as a center in Washington lol. This is all political.

brookdon

His brother has better career numbers than him lol

@brookdon  

Media attention as the "first team to bla bla" played a factor I'm sure, but I also think his role as a basketball player did as well - big body off the bench (with lots of pro experience) that will defend and set solid screens.

I'm hoping Silver does the same thing. Save this franchise from themselves.

@brookdon  

D'Antoni came in when Stern forced Dolan out of the picture and made him turn the team over to Donnie Walsh. With Dolan back in the saddle again, it will be more difficult.

@knickster  BLATANTLY FALSE?!  Excuse me?  Please tell me how many games Irving's PLAYED in the playoffs.  Tell me how many games he's won in just the regular season that only counts for seeding!


And Melo DOESN"T know how to win.  You can tell by the lack of rings on his finger.  So YES, my reasoning IS correct.  So he's gonna go to CLEVELAND where NO ONE knows how to win?! REALLY? That makes NO SENSE.


WHY AM I ENTERTAINING THIS CONVERSATION.  You have to be out of your damn tree to think that a 21 yr old kid knows how to win in the playoffs in this league when he's never stepped foot on the court in an NBA playoff game.  


I'm ignoring every one of your posts from now on.  Holy crap I can't believe I'm having this argument.

knickster
knickster

Don't be stupid, Elvis. it's blatantly false that Irving "doesn't know how to win'. He is a superstar in the making. By your reasoning, Melo (who has not won anything with better players than the ones surrounding irving in Cleveland) does not "know how to win", either.

Yours is just an empty phrase, devoid of any true meaning.

Elvis Maduro
Elvis Maduro

@knickster  You must have a reading comprehension issue.  Irving is 21 and doesn't know how to win.  He's not going to win THERE!  Are you listening to yourself?


Golden State...now you have a point.  But stop it with that Cleveland crap.  

knickster
knickster

That's why i said "IF he truly wants to win". I know melo will probably chase the money and the big stage (new york). But he won't ever win anything here. Cleveland, golden state and a few other less glamorous places offer a much better chance of winning.

IF he wants to win. get it?

Elvis Maduro
Elvis Maduro

@knickster  Because Melo isn't gonna take less money to go play in CLEVELAND of all places to play with a 21 yr old kid who's still green and doesn't know how to win.  Do you know how STUPID that would be?  


Melo's leaving but Cleveland is the last place he's considering.
