about to be 4 mins in the game and its been ALL carmelo anthony on offense, and then they wonder why amare is not doing good... and is better off the bench... same for lin not doing good with melo.
that type of play doesn't inspire teammates.
they put melo in an ISO situation everytime. (i watch every knicks game) the thing is. melo is definitely a willing passer, so if you cut to the hoop and get open, he will find you and give you a perfect pass. so yes they go to him everytim, but if the other players were to get open, we'd get easy baskets all day
but not everyone is a catch a shoot player. that why i think novak is doing so good in NY, he's feeding off all these isos every time. amare likes to get touches and run the p&r. lin likes to do his thing with the ball in his hands.... jr, baron, shumpert.
they just need to share the ball period, something that is possible because without melo the knicks we're playing w/ good ball movement.
Jeff Teague needs to quit playing and just be aggressive everytime down, his change of direction is crazy quick, and there's nobody in the L that can stay in front of him after his first step, and he can shoot the 3 as well, and he can finish above the rim.
If he played aggressive EVERY night i'm certain he could average 20-22 a game.
At the end of the first he has 10pts,3ast,2stls.
i've been agreeing w/ u dave on league, member we were talking about this. teague deserves a green light and should be allowed to hold the ball a bit more and create for others as opposed to johnson/ smith pounding the ball in iso situations
j. smoove needs to stop taking 3s in close-late game situations.
Marvin has to give the ball to Joe for that last shot. He'd been on fire down the stretch. Didn't even get a shot off. SMH
You sure have, Teague does need the green light, he's not D.Rose or Westbrook, but he is super quick can push the ball and will dunk on you if necessary. I'm not saying he's a superstar(Yet) but he has the tools to be a top PG in the league, if given the green light.
He can do what he did at Wake in the NBA.
