Not sure why everybody's getting all worked up over this loss. To me, our opportunity was blown with the loss on Friday. That was an absolute must have win game, given our remaining schedule and that of Atlanta's.

None of it really matters much anyway, as we were never winning anything of consequence this season. Things become important again when Phil truly gets to work, both in choosing a new head coach and in starting to make headway in reconstructing this roster.

Biggie's mid-season "real/fake fan" indictments earlier this season have ended up hijacking so many damn post-game threads now....


I propose a clean slate for all posters come July 2014.

Mickey Mantle? That's what you're upset about? Mantle makes $100,000 a year. How much does your father make? If your dad ever can't pay the rent and needs money, go ask Mickey Mantle. See what happens. Mickey Mantle don't care about you. Why care about him? -Sonny, A Bronx Tale


that's true man, there's no point getting mad, calling each other out, insulting each other. getting upset with the players, in the end we don't get s#hit from it. just saying

Nobody taking Melo, now I realize we want him back, (because of the obvious) and I don't agee w/ all these idiot saying we gon be a bad team nxt yr, this is the East case they forgot. Just....find better reserves b, Still don't know why they let Peace go then Earl Clark like that position was at a premium for us. If anything as a fan you would hope Phil really running this team going forward as far as personnel bcuz they need a basketball mind since they keep getting rid of them (  ex. Grunwald, Walsh ) No matter what you think of some of their moves it was basketball related, Not signing the Smith brother for.....whateva reason

To piggy back @Dagawd's thought, what does Phil think about JR??

He has the skill set Phil likes. Phil likes wildcards. He's project mentally. He's in his prime. Idk?

So what are the knicks chances of getting in now, previously it was 8%

Does this team deserve the hawks to win one game the rest of the way?

No

We deserve it.

@1harris1  True and I look forward to the rebuild that comes. 

I've waited this long for nothing, I can wait a little longer for a winning genius, to create a winning plan.

@1harris1  For me it was lost months ago. But I agree with everything else you said. This roster was not well put together. Hopefully Phil can clean things up over the next few years.

@Seth Plaut  I too want Woodson fired and criticize the team when they play poorly. What's your point?

@OLDKNICK  

"We couldn't get the stops we needed. Our rotations were off."

"We played these guys close, and then it's that 2 or 3 minute stretch that hurt us. Give them credit, they're the world champions."

on Carmelo: "He's hurting right now, but I couldn't rest him. He's giving us all he has."

@Jesus Blas  It has to be that his dad and family are there. Only reason to explain how tentative he looked. Shorted his shots, passed up shots, wasn't confident. BTW missing the playoffs could be worse. Start our search for a new coach early cause Im sorry Woody has to go.

@bioop333  I think phil might keep him around, cheap contract, can fill the kukoc role, he can make plays

@Jerry Gee @Kiyan Carter  I criticize everyone, Melo included when they play poorly. I just don't come on the blog with a hate agenda towards Woodson and Melo. AND I want Woodson fired. Wanted him fired at the All-Star break. You don't see me typing fire Woodson posts 100 times a day. Every post from you trolls are the same.

@Kiyan Carter  I knew the only way this team would improve from a management perspective was through losses, and sure enough, it landed us Jackson.

@Kiyan Carter  You're right. I am wasting my time. Just waiting for these trolls to make a valid point. They can't post anything knowledgeable. Every post is the same. Bashing Melo. It's pathetic.
