Amare says "&$#%#&@! YOU" to

Amare says "&$#%#&@! YOU" to everyone who said he is only a product of Nash and fast paced basketball. His ability to create for himself is sick. Probably the 2nd best in the league behind Dirk. Against Denver he took over in the 4th quarter offensivly.

But the Knicks will still struggle on the next level. They don't need a Melo or CP3 imo. They need a coach that teaches them not to take silly jumpers with 19secs left on the shotclock and how to play defense. Adding to this they need a Center that can play defense with like 30mpg, if not Amare will always struggle with fouls - or play bad defense because he doesn't want to get fouls like in the 4th quarter against Denver.

honestly i think coaching is

honestly i think coaching is overrated. I think the most important part of a team's success is the players. i do not remember any coaching change that brought a team "over the hump" but i remember several trades that put the team over the top. I mean i could be wrong but i think the Knicks need a roster upgrade not a coaching upgrade to be a serious contender

^ Have you heard of Rockets

^
Have you heard of Rockets coach Rick Adelman?
Can you really tell me that a line up of

Aaron Brooks
Ron Artest
Shane Battier
Luis Scola (6'8)
Chuck Hayes (6'5)

can take the eventual champion L.A. Lakers to game 7 without Rick Adelman's coaching?
Fisher
Kobe
Ariza
Odom (6'10)
Gasol (7'0)

true good point. but you

true good point. but you can't possibly agree that the Knicks need Rick Adelman or any other good coach instead of Carmelo or CP3?

I didn't mean that. I think

I didn't mean that. I think that a Melo or CP3 wouldn't be enough to be a real contender on Lakers & Celtics level. And!!! You can always say: Add a CP3 to that team and they will be better. But it is tough to get such a quality player like that. That's why I said: Start playing D and play a little bit slower but that probably won't happen with D'Antoni as a coach. Also get a solid defensive 5 like on a Brendan Haywood or Varejao level. That's more realistic imo.

The real thing holding the

The real thing holding the Knicks back from being a great team is their lack of low post defense. But they can score with anyone in the league, especially in crunch time.

The bets thing they do is

The bets thing they do is force tempo. Its next to impossible to play at their tempo because the constant pressure they put on you offensively.

Raymond Felton is using his

Raymond Felton is using his strength and frame and keeping Nate Robinson on his hip, and it's breaking down Boston's D. Felton is abusing Nate to the point that he can take it to the basket and score or create opportunities for Amare with EASE. They have to get Nate out of the game.

JNixon The reason Nate is in,

JNixon

The reason Nate is in, it's because Rondo's injury is slowing him down so he can't keep up with Felton's speed off picks.

If I'm the Knicks, I lock up

If I'm the Knicks, I lock up Felton for a while. His shot has improved dramatically, and is perfect for this offense. D'Antoni puts his players in the best position to be effective offensively. Amar'e's unstoppable.

The big thing is people are seeing the improvement in Gallo.

Garnett is really keeping the Celts in it with his post presence.

Paul Pierce

Pierce just nailed possibly the game winning shot. I guess they will settle for a moral victory

Great ending, despite Amare's shot not counting.

I actually like watching the Knicks. Amare is an improved player.

Maybe because he is a dirty player and a whiny &$#%#&@! at the same time? Adding to this he is very ugly, which kinda lets him seem even more unsympathic.

There was virtually no bench

There was virtually no bench production, and the Knicks cant keep playing this way. While a win was really wanted its nice to see them really playing well against one on the top teams in the NBA.

The play that hurt them the

The play that hurt them the most was that 3 by Ray Allen that was wide open. Also Knicks let Garnet get 2 offensive board after they played pretty good defense. They are on the verge though. They would have beaten the other 28 teams with the way they played. Boston just seem to make the shots when they counted the most and that is the fourth quarter. Amare normally owns that. Knicks also are going to have adjust their style let in games. They need a better slow down game because they gave Boston enough extra possesions to get back into it. They should have slowed it down a little when they had a 4 points lead with 2 minutes. Spurs can play both styles well and that is showing for them this years not that they have a deeper team to rest Duncan more.

Knicks current don't have the

Knicks current don't have the personel to stop some teams. They really need a solid big man like say Tyson Chandler. Who can get rebounds and alter shots. Knicks have to play scrappy which can get you wins versus a lot of teams but the better teams that can slow it down will get the shots they want or let Knicks expend a lot of energy. Mike D needs to start going to his bench more.

this was such a great game to watch nate falling down was hillarious. the problem was rebounding late wen ever boston missed seemed like kg got the rebound we need a big body who grabs boards to help out amare great game and seems like were going to see great games to come from knicks and celtics

lol get used to it. That's what happened the season when the lakers had Kwame,Smush and the other guys on the team. People act like they weren't fans but became fans once the Lakers started winning again

Let's talk about Stoudemire

Let's talk about Stoudemire though...

I wasn't one of those people who thought he'd struggle without Nash, but I didn't expect him to be this good.

I mean, it's like he's carried his post All-Star break play with the Suns last season over to this season, except taken it up a level. He's rebounding better this year... Attacking the rim more and seeing the floor better. His defense is still so so though.

I'm just impressed with him.

I am actually wondering how

I am actually wondering how Miami versus Knicks will be because honestly if Knicks play this way against Miami, they can win. Miami with their big 3 don't tend to put up big point. Also who is going to guard Amare. Celtics had a pretty good game from all their big 3 and it still game down to one shot. Also someone else just noticed something I also noticed. Amare should have had more than .4 seconds. He should have at least had .7 second. Either way this was a good game that the Knicks could have won if not for costly mistakes in the 4th quarter.

D'antoni really needs to play

D'antoni really needs to play Turiaf some the Knicks don't have any size in the paint.

It kills them on rebounds and you could see down the stretch the Celtics had their way.

Great game, couple mistakes the Allen 3 and they might wanna not guard Rondo when he can't move well and double someone else instead.

They definately need to improve defensively but their a young team.

Against Miami they should do well, Bosh isn't much of a defender.

Felton and Douglas should have good games, Fields will probably get schooled but it'll be an experience for him.

Neither team really has much of a bench.

If anything, this game showed

If anything, this game showed why the Knicks cant trade for Melo. They cant gut their depth anymore at this point....trading Galo, Fields, and potentially Chandler would just kill them. They can win without him, or sign him in the offseason. Both better choices, in my opinion.
