blake was an all star last year and the clips were garbage. not as bad as the wolves, but still.

i can understand the blake slurping. he's exciting and high flying and always providing highlights. but someone who can get 20/20 any night and had 30/30 last year is not boring in my book. but i guess to the voters that doesn't matter.

yeh most fans are more interested in big flashy dunks than good basketball. IMO a bad team is less of a problem all-star-voting-wise than a small market.

but he should be put on the west squad by the coaches, no question. and yeah, I forgot about Love. definitely deserves to be the starting West PF. hopefully the coaches vote him in too.

joe johnson, iguodala, or eric gordon over dwyane wade. he can sit on a bench and look pretty

that game where love made the winning 3 pointer over the clippers that was sexy. love is awesome



also really really lovin the blazers right now. i really hated raymond felton last year, but with wesley matthews, gerald wallace, and lamarcus aldridge this team is just playing really good ball. finally blazers got something going. and felton really puts his heart into things. last year i got frustrated when the dude was just carefree and lackadaisical on defense



also i dont think it's exactly d'antoni's fault. his idea of how the knicks should play (the fast paced multiple offensive threat orientated 7 seconds or less style) just differs from how they actually play (ie melo constantly chucking up shots like a kobe with a worse chip on his shoulder and everybody standing around watching). tyson is wasted on this team. melo's wasted on this team. the whole team is wasted on this team. baron davis is not going to make the comeback everybody is hoping for. amare is terrible this season. just painful to watch. at least the giants are going to the superbowl

imo d'antoni's style of offense really thrives under point guards like steve nash. the knicks dont have that.

Mike D'antoni doesn't teach defense..... AT ALL.

Trust me, coming from a die hard Suns fan.

And the Knicks don't have any true outside threats to kick the ball out to from double-teams(on Amare or Melo). But now the Knicks have 3 highly paid players and nothing around them....well I guess some Knick fans are claiming to just wait until their savior Baron Davis returns....ha.

He's way too inefficient to be so fucking selfish. His defense is shit and he doesn't make anybody around him better. He'll never win a ring as the primary option and I'm beginning to think he'll never win one as a secondary one either.

Crowd should start chanting "We want Clyde!"

No 1 guard to distribute and run plays leads to melo chucking up shots. Amare not playing aggressive makes me feel like hes a waste of $$$. No cohesion = No playoffs

I just don't get how the Knicks has less chemistry this year than last year after all the trade was done. Did Billups really that much of a difference? IIRC, Billups was hurt about half of the time he wore Knicks uni last year. They look good on paper (Melo, Amare, Chandler, Shumpert, Fields, Walker, Bibby, Douglas, Jeffries, etc..) but it seems like D'Antoni's system just needs a very good PG for his plays to work. W/o Nash, his system ain't shit. It's a run and gun team and taking advantage of transitions but horrible defense and inexperienced (Shumpert) or shooting (Douglas) PG just isn't working. Davis, is he can be healthy, should be able to help, I guess. And yeah, Melo needs to stop shooting all the damn time. I didn't think he could take worst shots than Kobe but he has proven me wrong.

it's the black hole of Melo. he's the problem. Amare is awesome if you get him in motion...like on pick and rolls and pick and pops. but he can't do shit just watching Melo do his isos.

speaking of Kobe i also think he should force feed the ball more into Paula and Bynum, but at least the offense has been designed around him (the famous Mike Brown "Lebron Hero Mode" offense). D'Antoni's system is constant motion and quick reads, and Melo completely fucks that up.
