    One thought to “Knicks Morning News (2013.11.01)”

    1. The knicks offense is impatient, undisciplined, selfish and outright sloppy. It looks like a schoolyard offense. They have the worst shot selection of any team destined to make the playoffs.

      World Peace wouldn’t dare take the same shots when playing with the Lakers. Hardaway, granted a good shooter and promising prospect, has to understand he’s not leading his college team anymore. Those are just two names. It’s a team disease. And it all starts with numero uno. Melo, though subtly becoming more team centric, still puts up far too many tough, contested, low percentage shots. Basically, that’s a memo to the team: Get it an shoot. The result is what we witnessed last night. Slop.

      Not that I care about them, but the same can be said for D. Rose and the Bulls. Last years Bulls would have given last nights knicks a good beat down. But, with Rose not seeing a shot he didn’t like, they played as sloppy as the knicks. Only a superstar can get away with that.
