Knicks Player Tweet of the Week

Instead of blaming other people or complaining about playing time Shumpert just admits failure.  Classy.  And that’s why he gets the tweet of the week.

It’s been a slow week, hopefully that means everyone is focusing on tonights game.  JR hasn’t been on twitter in 6 days!  Shumpert wins shoes and tweet of the week!

Episode 174: Finding the Problem

Jay and Marc feel that lately even when the Knicks win it’s ugly and not a formula for success in the playoffs.  They try and figure out if the problem is coming from the coaching or from certain players.  There is a lot of criticizing this episode but almost none of it is about Amare.  Jay comes up with a few trade proposals that Marc finds very unrealistic.  Download Episode 174

February is off to a good start

  • The Knicks started off the 1st half in usual annoying fashion, falling behind by double digits before winning by a decent margin at the end.  This lack of enthusiasm for the first two quarters is going to really bite them in the ass against better teams.
  • Amare has developed this mini-hook that has been really really effective.  If he is going to continue to score 15-17 and grab 6-8 rebounds in 25 minutes off the bench while playing semi-tolerable defense while not complaining about his role I’m all in.
  • Tyson Chandler: 20 rebounds.  Awesome.
  • Felton hurt his previously broken finger.  After clearly showing some pain and icing it for a while he came back in and hit a few shots.  Lets hope it was just a bump and not a refracturing or the 2nd half of the season is going to be really long.
  • Kudos to the Knicks for finally not getting burned by not one but two fast point guards.  Also, after fast starts by Dunleavy and Ilyasova the Knicks contained them in the 2nd half as well.  In other words, no Knick Effect for tonight!
  • I’m really glad the Knicks won tonight, but they are playing tomorrow and I would have rathered Melo not play 44 minutes tonight.
  • In the 3rd quarter Shumpert got pulled after one minute for missing a defensive assignment.  I like that Woodson holds players accountable but it would be even better if he did that for every player.  Like when Melo all but sits down on the floor with his arms crossed like a 3 year old when he doesn’t get a call.

The Knicks Prove Their Lack of Desire for the #1 Seed

  • The lack of effort in this game by everyone not named Amare was disgusting.
  • JR Smith final line, 0-8, 0 points, 4 turnovers, +/- of minus 16.  Thanks for putting to rest the debate of whether you should have made the all-star team.
  • Ed Malloy was the ref tonight, but he had no effect on the Knicks, this was all on them.
  • Jrue Holiday had a career high.  Knickeffect.
  • Amare Stoudemire had 20 points on 8-13 shooting and some nice defensive plays.  Too bad it was wasted on this shit show of a game.
  • Philly starters outscored Knicks starters 89-40.
  • This had better be a continuity issue that will resolve itself soon or else the Knicks have big problems as this is the healthiest they have been all year.
  • What happened to the defense from the 1st month of the season?  Wasn’t Shumpert coming back supposed to make the Knicks even more potent on defense?
  • Ronnie Brewer looked great the 2.5 seconds he played tonight.
