Carmelo Anthony on the Knicks: ‘It Can’t Get No Worse Than This’
 

 

Things were supposed to be different this time around for the New York Knickerbockers.

Ownership twisted Mike D’Antoni’s arm into hiring a defensively-minded a.ssistant coach in Mike Woodson, the team splurged on defensive specialist center Tyson Chandler, Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire promised to defend with more tenacity, and the jaded fans at MSG even managed to launch into a few early-season chants of “DE-FENSE!”

Things have not been different for the Knicks this time around. It’s pretty much business as usual, as defense in New York remains a fantastical concept.

Last night in New York, the Charlotte Bobcats humiliated the Knicks, making Boris Diaw look like a Hall of Famer in the process. Afterward, Carmelo Anthony and embattled head coach Mike D’Antoni did their best to put a positive spin on the sputtering start (2-4) to the season.

From ESPN:

“Just stick with it,” Anthony told his teammates. “It can’t get no worse than this.” Expectations were lofty for the Knicks coming into the season. With Tyson Chandler in tow, the Knicks believed they had the best front line in the NBA. Mike D’Antoni went as far as to say his team should contend for an NBA title. It’s early, but after six games, the Knicks don’t have the look of a title contender. And, naturally, there is some frustration in the locker room.

“I’m sure they’re frustrated,” Mike D’Antoni said after the Knicks’ loss to the Bobcats on Wednesday. “They didn’t want to start off 2-4, but at the same time, there are 60 more games left. So we know what we’ve got to do. They’ll hang in there, they’re good guys, a good group. We’ll solve the problems and we’ll get it done here. But it’s got to be sooner than later. We’ve got to get going.” The Knicks allowed the Bobcats to shoot 55% from the field on Wednesday, a night after Charlotte lost by 14 to Cleveland. Afterward, Chandler acknowledged that the Knicks were upset.

“Obviously, guys are upset,” he said. “Anytime you lose and you lose to a team that you know you should have beat then you know you’re going to be frustrated. If not, we [should] to be in different of sport.” Anthony said players were “down” after losing for the fourth time in five games.

The New York Knicks’ problems aren’t just on the defensive end of the floor. With Baron Davis nursing a back injury, and Mike Bibby rotting away, they don’t have any playmakers to make life easier for Carmelo and Amar’e Stoudemire.

As for Mike D’Antoni, his seat continues to heat up as he trudges through the final year of a $45 million contract, with fans and media turning on him almost daily.

But, hey, cheer up Knick fans. As ‘Melo said, things can’t possibly get any worse. Right?

To be honest he's right.

And the reason I say that is throughout all my years of rooting for the knicks (Patrick Ewing missed lay-up, Layden, Isiah Thomas era) & seeing us suck never have I been so pathetic in a group. I'm so pissed because not only do we have two of the top 5 best players at their positions we also have a defensive presence in Chandler yet we've lost to a Curry-less Warriors, the Bobcats & the Raptors.


I know we've sucked d!ck before but jesus christ......jesus fu*king christ

One thing I've learned is that the cream rises to the top, excrement floats, and the Knicks always sink to the bottom.

D’Antoni system needs a play maker. His system sucked before Steve Nash and it's sucking without that caliber pg. Against the raptors every time Carmelo would post he would get double teamed, kick it out to whoever and they jack the shot. Not once did I see a repost into Anthony, not once did I see the ball get passed around. Knicks took 35' 3's that game. Yes it six games in but D’Antoni been there for a while what is he going to do differently? Six games in and the raptors actually play defensive. Andrea is playing defense. Do the Knicks or D’Antoni care about defense?

Melo and amare are one in the same. 2 players who never gave a d!ck about defense, never pass the ball, and are only looking for their own shots. Obviously they need a pg. This was possibly the dumbest pairing ever because in order to make the duo work you gotta spend money on. A center who rebounds well and block shots because amare doesn't care too. Then you gotta spend money on a high a.ssisting pg who's great at running the pick-n-roll because melo can't run the point-forward.

You can't afford all these things because melo and amare's contracts and super huge.

Good luck getting that pg for cheap. Knicks lost

So we were gonna beat the Boston Celtics with Chandler & Gallo? Really?

fu*k outta here.

We deserve some of the sh*t y'all saying but sh*t like this is what makes me look at you like a dumbass. How you gonna say you would think Chandler would make a difference like he's supposed to Moses parting the fu*king red sea? We NEEDED him at the center position to clear up our need for a center. He gets his block & rebounds what else do you want him to do?

Play PF, SF & PG on the defensive end?

No motherfu*ker this falls on Mike D'antoni who doesn't know how to coach his players, his players don't fear him & he makes the worst defensive rotations I've ever seen. I bet you were one of those people who thought bringing in Mike Woodson would've changed the dynamic of this team.

People wanna sh*t on this squad of players & act like the only problems are Melo & Amar'e. fu*king clowns
