    D’Antoni and Mike Brown coaching in the playoffs. Go figure.

      yeah, i’ve never been of the opinion that those guys were bad coaches. they were in the wrong time and place when hey were in LA, though.

        I think both are one-dimensional and pay lip service to core aspects of the game. Mike Brown can be an exceptional defensive coach when he has LeBron or Draymond to lock it down. Minus that kind of defender, the results are pretty poor. His offensive schemes are terrible. Mike D’Antoni is the opposite, great offense, no D. They should co-coach somewhere.

    NBA’s most intimidating super athletic team: Westbrook, Jordan, LBJ, Malone and Shaq.

    Next season: Dlo, JC, BI, JR and Zu.

    If they draft a PG, who goes? Obvious answer is Dlo but so many permutations.

    Which position do you trade an Allstar for? All but SF. No, LT, not even for for George.

    Seems to me the biggest need is not a player but a defensive coach. That alone should net 5-10 more wins.

    Einstein defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

    Trying going big, Luke. Going small hasn’t worked.

    Somebody sent me an email pointing out that on March 15 we talked about alphas and the very next day this interview happened:

    hmmm…..

    Ok, lets be clear.

    Tanking is losing on purpose. Lakers aren’t doing that. They just can’t win. They’re not good enough. Its like saying Lavar Ball tanked a game against Jordan. Maybe in trash talking. Nah, not even there. There’s no hidden purpose here team is just bad.

    The losing big though is something else. Thats just quitting and thats the bad part. I can take the team losing but watching them quit? Nah.

      Then shame on the coach for leaving “quitters” in the game.

    So is the jv team playing tonight?

    As a suffering New Yorker I have one question- Does James Dolan have an sister? You know, one that can fire him.

      Probably not, but Cashman’s time is due and those Steiny boys. Hopefully they are waiting for Harper and such next year.

      Easy to blame him right?

      What most outside of NYC don’t understand, is Dolan has as much influence in owning the New York Rangers.

      Rangers have made a Stanley Cup Finals and could again this year. They make money to…

      A lot of the Knicks problems over the past few years is Phil Jackson. Whom you and other want togive a pass.

      Keep doin that. He skips Draft workouts, doesn’t travel to Europe to scout nor to South America, he doesn’t look at his weekly scouting briefs (have a friend who works in D-League) and rarely is in the video room.

      Sam Presti and RC Buford go to Estonia to scout. Masai Ujiri and Rich Cho frequently visit places like Angola and Brazil.

      Phil Jackson and Magic Johnson aren’t those kinds of Executives.

      The Difference? Mitch sought talent like a Ryan West and Antonio Macieras (Whose contract has been extended) and read their weekly reports and videos sent to them.

      He’s a terrible GM amd Dolan picked him.

    So Magic was true to his word. His first call was to Kobe and Kobe’s answer was “Hire my agent.”

    One possible reason Jeanie fired John Black is that he is the man behind that ill-conceived Dwight billboard campaign that caused her so much embarrasment.

    In a seance Magic brought forth the magic and absorbed the essence of Dr. Buss.

    Dang, Jim Buss is so disregarded that Magic has reached mythical proportions.

    Too much is being read into the New York win.Just bear in mind that a team that bad still managed to score 107 on this “new look” Lakers.

      The Knicks are the antidote to every team’s troubles.
      Nevertheless, I liked how we played with Black and Ingram starting.
      Let’s see how it plays out the next two road games.
      We have now played 4 straight pretty good games.

      what’s too much to read into that the team played a good game? regardless of the competition, they haven’t always played a good game this year, win or lose.

        They have looked much better for 4 in a row now. They played both the Wizards and the Celtics tough and beat the Nuggets before they hit the road with a solid performance. Let’s read into that. It’s called progress, which was the stated goal prior to the season.

          From my perspective, at least a third of the games they have lost, could have gone either way.

            Of course, but those are called growing pains. Completely expected. Games they are losing this season, they will will next season.

          Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.

          A truly strong person does not need the approval of others any more than a lion needs the approval of sheep.
