The Knicks have a very good team. Only missing piece is a point guard and a half way decent head coach.

Yeah maybe Dwight Howard but defintely not Melo and Amare would make Phil sign on to coach the Knicks. He only went to LA because Shaq and Kobe were both stars at the time which is not the case with Melo or Amare.

Melo is just selfish. Even it is him or no one else. If the Lakers are playing poor, Kobe would be yelling at the players. Did you see Melo doing that in the last few games? Nope. He is the problem

Amare is damn broken. Cannot hop, cannot run, cannot def.

D'Antoni needs to do what is right. If the player is not playing his game, bench that player. Even if that person is a superstar. If he cannot make tough decision, then the Knicks will need to replace him and find another coach.

Melo cannot just stand there, put up his hand and ask for the ball. His no ball no movement attitude needs to be changed.

1) Amare could never defend.
2) Melo got tainted by Iverson, plain and simple....Iverson gave him playa-AIDS.
3) D'Antoni can't coach D....gee, how did that work in Pheonix?
4) The Knicks ownership is the core problem and better players wisely avoided them for it. They will meddle in all manner of things and put crappy guys in key positions.....and it hasn't stopped.

Hey guys I have the solution, fire D'Antoni and rehire Isaiah Thomas.

Knicks need to play defense period. They give up way to many points. Amare needs to be the player that he was when he was with Phoenix. This team will not make the playoffs if they don't make some changes. I still have faith that they can get it together.

The other problem is now they have allowed not only the Bucks in the playoff race, but the Nets and Cavs have now become alive for the 8th spot due to the Knicks collapse

Amare cannot be the player he was. He got mess up knees. Did you see him jumping in the games? Did you see him able grab a reb if there is another player right next to him? Knicks made a bad choice to pick him up.

Knicks will not makes to to playoff. Just look their match up vs Bucks match up for the rest of the season. They need put up some defense. Melo need to put down his pride and play the game like a team. Stop putting up his hand and ask for the ball every shot. Run the floor and get the easy shot.

The Knicks are going nowhere. They have no rebounding and their defense switches too much and extremely inconsistent. On paper, they look good, but that isn't reality. Not sure they will beat out Milwaukee for the last spot.

Offensively, it remains to be seen if the chemistry can develop among Lin, Melo, and Amare. Defensively, this team is not built to win a title especially with DAntoni at the helm. They played some very good D against the Bulls last nite, but not consistent enough. Amare is just untradeable with his mega contract and subpar performances nowdays. Melo is having his worst year, but his offense will come around though his D is suspect. Lin is still a rookie, but will improve and his a good future ahead barring injuries. Baron's best days are behind him now. Not sure why the Knicks are trying to trade Douglas right now. At least keep him till the end of the year in case Baron gets hurt again.

I think they should take a look at Jeff Van Gundy as a possible replacement.
