Polladaday: Knicks Struggles?

The Knicks haven’t played too well recently, losing six of their last seven. Do you know why?

What's the reason for the Knicks recent play?

    Other: Amar’e needs to step up. The Knicks need to have Smooth run more pick and roll. POW!

    Get rid of the Pringles Man. But cosign Orange, Amare’s play has been down lately.

    time to get the kiks out. They’ve played great basketball at stretches and at other tiems just disoriented basketball, I think that is all just them figuring out where the chips need to fall. I’d like to see a guy like Shelden Williams get more minutes. Other than that they are still as dangerous as any because of their sheer unpredictability. You just can’t tell when its all gonna click but it eventually will. If they play the Bulls in the first round I think they could pose some problems…they could throw Toney Douglas and Anthony Carter at D-Rose

    I would blame Mike D’antoni. I think he has always been an overrated coach.

    all the above?

    except for melo being a bad fit.

  • Riggs

    Its pretty much all of the above except for the melo option.

    It’s all Melo’s fault; he can’t keep up in the SSOL system; gotta run up and down the court like you just broke out of jail. He certainly qualifies on defense though, ‘cuz it’s not required for D’Antoni… just ask Corey Brewer. :D

    more time.. NY just has to redefine their roles.. they gave up great players that accepted their roles.. with more time.. and redefinition (is that a word?).. they’ll be fine.. but not this year..

    Undo the trade.

  • http://slamonline.com Ugh

    All of the above.
    Also to Kamla – I feel comfortable predicting that this starting five won’t see the ECF.

  • gani

    I think Melo needs to adapt to the system and not make the system adapt to him. Things were working in NY before the trade.
