Pathetic game by the Knicks. First time I've ever rooted against Kemba. But was glad he was able to shine later in the game. If you didn't see the game, Kemba dribbled through two Knicks (Amare and T. Douglas). Douglas busted his ass trying to keep-up with Kemba and Kemba proceeded to knock-down the jumper.
The crowd was nasty last night. Yelling, "We want Shumpert!" I mean, D'Antoni took Shumpert out of the game when he was just getting back into the flow of things in the 3rd quarter. Mind-boggling.
This team isn't going to win a damn thing until a defensive-minded head coach takes over. D'Antoni can say all he wants about preaching defense - nothing changes.
I love how the media here talks about Melo and STAT getting [insert points and rebounds here]. What the media doesn't mention is how many points each one of these fools allows on the other end of the court. Wish they had a statistic for that.

This Heat vs Hawks game is painful to watch. Hawks were once down by 13 coming into the 2nd half. Keep in mind there is no LeBron or Wade for the Heat. Hawks have now put in their 10th & 11th player (on the depth chart) into the game. The starters just were no getting it done. Atlanta has now gone on a 16-1 run and are now up by 2 points.

Cousins practically jumped into Smart's arms after the win last night.
It'll be interesting to see how Smart plays out in the next few months. My guess is that the Maloofs will see him get the team on some sort of positive roll (pretty much anything is better than the first few weeks of the season at this point) and off him some stupid contract. Instead of trying to get Sloan or Adelman back, or anyone else. This is probably a "grass is always greener" type contract, but I wish the Maloofs would sell.
did any of you guys catch barkley & harlan's rant last night when they thought they were off air? i missed it live but a buddy of mine sent me this link.
