  perfidious: Mike Woodson's (probably inevitable) date with the executioner:

  HeMateMe: I never feel sorry for coaches let go in a fixed contract. With $8M or so of guaranteed monies, they are set for life, if they manage money well.

  perfidious: <HMM> That is, of course, one major caveat; for we have seen many people who, on finding themselves in possession of large amounts of the coin, quite unable to handle them, what with one thing or another.

  HeMateMe: I don't think the coaches pee it away, but the players sure do.
Apr-22-14  Strongest Force: Players must 'buy in' what the coach sells and thus be motivated.

Other than the Woodson termination, I am not thrilled with what PJ is doing. Why try to refurbish Odom?

  HeMateMe: Report on another site says that Phil J is moving to NYC, at least for awhile, to get the coach squared in and running the Triangle. Kerr, Derek Fisher, Jim Cleammons and even Rambis are on coach watch.

Makes a lot of sense he move here, at least till things get set up, and the Melo sign/no sign situation is settled. I think the coach gets hired, they decide triangle or no triangle, they tell melo what they want to see on the court, get an answer, then decide, as a group on whether or not they want him. The new coach has to be sold on Melo, it has to be a group decision.

I think they should offer him a short term deal, maybe 2 years, and see if he is willing to run the offense the new coach wants. Pretty iffy. If he does follow instructions, he gets a longer term deal. If not, sayanaro.

Apr-22-14  unferth: Phil loves Odom & is gambling he can zen master him back into shape-if not, the contract's not guaranteed. Odom was incredibly useful on Phil's Lakers, one of the most versatile players in the NBA. He had/has hall of fame talent but never quite put it together, though under Phil's watch he came close.

No way Carmelo accepts a short-term probationary deal. He's a superstar with tons of leverage, and despite his limitations, plenty of teams will give him a long-term max contract if the Knicks don't.

  HeMateMe: I think they let him walk. Boston did, with Paul Pierce and kevin Garnett. Melo is in his early 30s. He won't improve, and I very much doubt he will change his style of one on one basketball. Denver gave up on him. Phil J knows that NYC has a special allure for free agents, but it can't work if someone like Melo is the featured star. A crappy small market team might pay Melo, to have guaranteed mediocrity, instead of the lottery, but Phil J isn't being paid to just have mediocrity. I think they let him go, rather than tie up $22M a year in an asset that can't appreciate.
Apr-22-14  unferth: I don't follow the Knicks closely enough for my opinion to carry much weight, but I'd be kind of surprised if they let him go. his ego/ballhogging/no d notwithstanding, he's a circa-top-10 talent, and the Knicks don't have anyone else close to that. it takes a star to sell tix and attract other stars, and I bet Dolan will want to keep him. Phil successfully built his system around Kobe, a similar (though better) player with similar issues, and I'm guessing his ego tells him he can do it again.

  HeMateMe: But LA won CHAMPIONSHIPS with Kobe, for all of his problems. Knicks aren't even making the playoffs, with Melo. He isn't good enough to carry a team, like some guys. Yet, he holds the ball as though he were that kind of player. Biggest problem may be that he is a jump shooter, more than a get to the basket guy. Fewer fouls, and fewer passes to teammates, fewer easy baskets. As he gets older, he will just become more of a jump shooter.
Apr-22-14  unferth: Kobe couldn't carry the Lakers by himself, either; between the departure of Shaq & the arrival of Pau, they wallowed in mediocrity too. Phil might want to hang onto Anthony as the superstar scorer/shot creator to be surrounded by the cast he assembles--or not. I sure can't say, but it wouldn't be out of line with Phil's history to keep him around.

  Jim Bartle: Remember, the Lakers weren't that good at all in 2008, even with Kobe, until they pulled off that steal of (excuse me: trade for) Gasol.
Apr-23-14  Strongest Force: Is the triangle all PJ knows? How hard would it be for 'newbies' to learn it?

PJ must build from scratch, imo. He must shape and mold according to talent.

Tanaka is the real deal and has his whole team rallying and believing

  perfidious: Jimmy and Phil already going at it?

Jackson wants to cut some staffers, Dolan says no dice:

In Dolan's case, once a liar, always a liar.

Apr-23-14  Strongest Force: Dolan hates to be outdone :-)

Tanaka and Anthony would be a bad match - would be surprised if Jackson shows any interest

Apr-23-14  Strongest Force: Plang, Tanaka can play basketball?

Quite true, same as many another team with a gunner who never met a shot he didn't like.

<Ko-me> evidently loathed Shaq--pity his desire to win did not trump other considerations such as playing big fish in the little pond.

  Jim Bartle: I don't want to excuse him. But Kobe was always upset Shaq never got into great shape or worked to develop his game in the offseason, the way Kobe did. He thought Shaq could have been even better.
Apr-23-14  unferth: yeah, Kobe had a point about Shaq's work ethic, but it didn't justify his behavior. that team would have been good for another two titles at least had he not torn it apart with his tantrums.

  Jim Bartle: I agree. That's why I said it was no excuse. Now if Shaq and Jordan had been teammates, Shaq would have worked hard or there would have been trouble.

au contrar! Shaq would have told #23 "This is my team! Get me the ball, or get out!" Jordan would have left and hooked up with Hakeem Olajuwon in Houston, and built a super team which would have played in the finals against Detroit, and smoked them.

Apr-23-14

  Jim Bartle: I respectfully disagree. Jordan would have been "the alpha dog" on any team, and Shaq would have had to shape up.

Of course Jordan was an excellent team player, and he would have gotten Shaq the ball, because it was good for the team.

But when Shaq reported 40 pounds overweight and played entire seasons overweight, Jordan wouldn't have stood for it. Jordan would have asked him why he never added a new offensive post move, or learned to shoot 65% on free throws.

  Jim Bartle: Speaking of Shaq, Orlando drafted Chris Webber #1 the year after Shaq (they had the #1 pick two years in a row), and those two would have been a monster combination.

But they liked Penny Hardaway as well, so they sent Webber to Golden State for Penny plus three #1s. That's a hard deal to turn down, I know (three number ones? one becoming Vince Carter), but still, Shaq and Webber would have been a force for years. And maybe Webber's career would have gone better.

Apr-23-14  SugarDom: Heat will be hard press to 3-peat.
