Amar’e would HURT this non-rebounding team?

by knicksdefense on November 17, 2012

Amar’e will HELP because Amar’e, just like Melo, can sacrifice his touches for the betterment of the team.  People don’t realize how badly Amar’e wants to win.

Amar’e can also pull down 10 rebounds on any given night.

This team only has one major weakness as far as I can tell:  REBOUNDING.

Well, age too.

Well, no post up game too, Melo and Rasheed aside.

Well, we live and die with the three ball too.

But rebounding the major concern, and players are admitting this.

To think that we have Amar’e, even if he’s not the Amar’e that used to jump over people as a Sun, waiting in the wing along with rebounding/shot blocking specialist Marcus Camby waiting for his number to be called is encouraging after a discouraging loss last night.

Felton and Kidd were great last night.

J.R. Smith reverted a little bit last night.  Granted there were droughts and we were looking for buckets and needed his to be a gunner.  He was a little out of control last night.

The ball movement hasn’t been as generous and we also hit 13 turnovers last night and as a result, the players will run, not the coaches.

We’re not a perfect team, not now, nor were we a perfect team at the beginning of the season.

Just as the players get fined for flopping, if a ref still makes a bad “flagrant foul 1″ call even after reviewing the tape, they should get fined as well.  Bastards.

That call and several others were what pushed the Knicks to lose their control in the third.

Bottom line:  we fouled too much, maybe we were tired after the game in San Antonio.  We also can’t rebound the ball, so 6-1 is not bad for a team that can’t block shots or rebound the basketball.

Prigioni should have got PT in the third, maybe he could have changed the complexion of the game and settled the team down.

Where did Chandler’s leaping ability go?  He seems to be below the rim on these lobs Felton and Kidd are throwing to him the past two or three games.

I wonder if corrupt NBA refs think about how a box score will look as they “officiate” the game.

Donnie Walsh returned to Madison Square Garden on Sunday with the visiting Pacers.

Walsh spent several seasons as president of the New York Knicks where he rebuilt the roster coming out of the Isiah Thomas-era.

“I’ve said before, I think they’re a contending team,” Walsh said. “There’s not that many contending teams…You see the roster, but now they’re playing up to the roster and they’re only going to get better.”

The Knicks have acquired Tyson Chandler, Jason Kidd, Marcus Camby, Rasheed Wallace and Kurt Thomas since Walsh’s departure.

“I’ve said they’re a contending team. But to go any further, you’ve got to do it. You can’t talk about it, you’ve gotta do it. And that’s kind of where all the teams are,” Walsh said. “They have the whole gamut of guys. I think around the league, they’ve got as good (depth) as anybody.

“I think Glen has done a wonderful job, got exactly the right guys to add to what was here before. And I’m really happy for the fans. Because during the years when we were breaking the team up, the two years we knew we were going to lose…I’m glad to see they can come here now and say ‘Wow, this is a team that can be really good.’ And I think that they will be.

“I’m happy that what I started here is coming to fruition here.”
