    1. Why is Cole being treated like Cholera by the coaches? He’s not a good fit for the Triangle. Bigs gotta touch the ball in the Triangle and Cole’s ham hock hands –> High Turnover Rate –> Bench. Also, in Triangle, it’s desirable for big to ideally be able to post up, but if not, then to be able to hit elbow jumper (like Dalembert, Bargs, Williams). What about D? It appears coaches place greater emphasis on a functioning offense, relying on active and spirited team defense which might be the byproduct of an offense like the Triangle where all the players are touching the ball. Don’t despair – Sh!t happens and it’s more than likely team will need a colerectomy at some stage.

    2. wouldn’t it be nice if Melo would shut up and focus on basketball? I know he’s got mic’s in his face all the time. but, man. less talking.

      I’m also glad that 2/3 of the “I’m too busy arguing the call to get back on D” are gone….Ray and Chandler. I wonder if the Fisher / Phil influence will mean less of that from the whole team this year. I really hope so.

    3. Darrell H.,

      Please, please, please become a regular commenter on here. Please. Your (non-)opinions about basketball are going to be really fun when Bargnani sucks the team into the lottery pool.

      I am not kidding or being sarcastic. I want you to post, and post at great length, for the remainder of the 2014-15.

      After Bargnani brings his season-long “positive” contributions to our TV sets, I would like your commentary in toto.

      Sincerely,

      The Knickerblogger Front Office’s Idiot #1

      umm… ok. I would say both teams played hard my man

    5. With the way the Giants are looking (Jets too of course for the Jets fans here) I cant freaking wait for the NBA season to start next week. Its easier for me to handle the Knicks losing since Ive gotten used to it so I can still enjoy watching them even if they suck, I have a hard time watching and enjoying mediocre Yankee and Giants teams lol.
