    Absolutely like the sound of that. Let Mike do what he does best and have someone else concentrate on the defensive end of things. It works in football and it apparently works in the NBA. You have to subjegate your ego a bit, but then it's all about the team and not the coach.

    Let's see does D'Antoni cooperate. The Bulls and Suns have asked him before and he said no.

    I don't think he wants to do it because it limits his offensive system.

    You can't play the way he wants to on offense and still have a stellar D.

    I'm not even sure can the D be even average.

    IIRC, the best the Suns finished was 13th on D.

    For this to work, he's going to have to adjust his offense. More half court.

    And to be honest, I haven't seen any good half court set plays from him.

    Mike D'Antoni seems to have a certain system (run & gun) and not much else.

    If Dantoni must stay (likely), I hope we cram a defensive coach down his throat.

    Former Knick Zach Randolph has completely taken over this Memphis/San Antonio game.

    Grumble.

    He's always been a great scorer. He defintely seems to be giving a better effort all-around though....guess you gotta credit the Memphis coaching staff for getting this out of him.

    Last summer, Chris Paul raised a toast to joining Stoudemire and Anthony in New York to form "our own Big Three" to take on LeBron James and Co. A year from now, if he opts out of his contract, he'll get that chance. But does he really want it?
    Late last summer, Paul started grumbling about the direction his current team, the New Orleans Hornets, was headed. The franchise is still looking for an owner and is currently being run by the league. Paul, 26, said he wanted to be convinced that the team, in the league's smallest market, could afford to build a championship-caliber team around him.
    It appears, at the very least, they found a championship-caliber coach in Monty Williams, who was hired at the start of the season. The Hornets certainly overachieved by not only making the playoffs, but taking the defending-champion Lakers to six tough games in the first round.
    "They are most definitely serious about winning," Paul said of the Hornets after the team was eliminated.
    But how serious can they be? That remains to be seen. Meanwhile, Paul should enjoy the quiet offseason while he can. After LeBron in 2009 and Carmelo in 2010, it's now his turn to be the focus of trade speculation.
    This could all be a bag of hot air and maybe Paul's comments are just like Lee's about TX, but this is at least one reason why I'm not counting on the man coming here. If he comes, great, but I'm not going to set myself up for disappointment.

    Kinda painful to watch Zach Randolph now....the guy is such a different player then he was in NY. The effort exerted on both efforts of the floor, on the glass is consistent....and you see leadership skills from him now.

    No more "give me the ball, let me go 1 on 1, I'll score my 20+ no matter how many shots it takes and thats all I care about"

    The ability to play this way has always been there for him, but Memphis has fully tapped into it while NY (and Portland) never did.

    Boston looks terrible.

    Heat in 5.

    They didn't look great at times against the Knicks.

    You have to think a healthy Knick team takes Boston to 6 or 7 games.

    Throw in better coaching and Fields being visible, maybe they win the series.

    I'm trying to ignore that series because the Heat look like they really could win the title and I hate them.

    I'm not a D'antoni hater and I'm not going to blame him for that series loss. The Knicks aren't as good as the Celtics - certainly not with 2/3 stars rendered useleess. Fields was awful since the trade, so he was never going to be a real factor.

    Give me Miami all day everyday.

    It's that fans that drive my dislike of a team as much as anything.

    Some of you may not remember how annoying it was to see Bulls Starter gear everywhere and have to listen to the bandwagon jackasses wearing it.

    Proof of Adamek being the best best Knicks beat writer out there.

    Berman writes one of those irrational sh!t stitrring articles entitled "what if the Knicks built around Crawford and Randolph?" Berman then tweets a link to it.

    Adamek replies:

    @bergenadamek: What if they kept Steph? Isiah? And ... enough RT@NYPost_Berman What if Knicks had built around Randolph, Crawford? http://t.co/aSuMbFm

    Re: The 2011-2012 New York Knicks Thread

    Even if you could, why would anyone *want* to build around Crawford? He's expensive and not very good.

    At least Randolph has played like a top PF. Memphis deserves credit for taking the chance and getting the most out of him, but who knows if the Knicks could have done so.

    Wow, did he really say that, must have taken it down real quick, haven't seen mention of it anywhere. I'll admit I laughed but Pierce is just a piece of trash.

    Edit: Didn't see the discussion in the other thread. Still wouldn't surprise me if that's what he said though. Had to be some foul sh*t to get tossed.

    Pierce is douche-y enough to say something like that.

    Seems like the only way they clear enough cap space for Chris Paul in 2012, is to not spend much to improve next year, which means not bringing in someone worthwhile to play the pivot.
    The likelihood of a good big man falling to us in the draft is remote.
