criticize him all you want but there is no doubt he creates matchup problems for NY....the dude is 6-8, too big for kidd, felton, or shump to handle

he clowned nyk yesterday and has the right to talk the day after

only way to get back at him is to shut him down next time

What really kills is his recent numbers. It came from almost 48 percent in November to less than 28 percent in December and January combined.

That is horrible to say the least. This is besides the fact that he is taking more and more threes recently. He was averaging 2.9 attempts in November. He is averaging more than 5.6 attempts since then.

JR's play is a problem.


I believe this is mainly to do with his increased role since our PG problems. He needs to go back to being a spot up shooter instead of creating his own shot every time down the floor. When he isn't spending his energy on creating his shot falls more often and we know he tends to become streaky at times. With Shump and Felton coming back, we'll have to see how that impacts the team as far as getting easier shots and also how much pressure it takes of off melo/smith to create for others. Our best games with Felton out has been when Prigioni played his best at setting teammates up. Amare hasn't been very useful in the pick n roll because no one has been effective at getting him the ball. Talk about drawing fouls, Amare can make those ref's blow their whistle.



When Durant is playing I know the whistle blows, but does the ref's?

Why are we being so upset other this? The Nets have proved it so far. If the Refs made the right call in game 2 with Kidd kicking his leg out, this series would be 3-1. Also, even when Felton was here, he never did much against Brooklyn.

I know I may sound like a Nets homer, but sometimes this board can be over-the-top homers, too. It's pretty obvious the Nets are the better team right now, with wins against OKC, NYK, and IND, while the Knicks have lost to teams they should beat to be considered contenders and better than the Nets, like the rondo-less Celtics, Nets, and Bulls.

How do you know it would of been 3-1.. The game was tied at 97-97 a piece and Kidd hit a 3 but misses the FT. Who knows what would of happened. All I know is that we will be the better team come playoff time

Not sure why anybody would take offense to this. He said what he was supposed to say as a member of that organization.

It's up to us to get back on track and make him eat his words.

I like it and hope the rest of his team come out and talk more trash. I want them breathing down our backs the rest of the season right into the playoffs. I believe this will keep our Knicks motivated, focused and sharp. Keep talking Joe, make us prove you wrong.

Wonder how BLopez is feeling hearing his name in trade rumors for DHoward? I hope it throws a monkey in the wrench and sabotage their next three games out West.

He could be right...though we'll have to see at the end of the season and/or playoffs.

knicksRback wrote:Wait so the Nets think there so good? We just got a few critical key piece in our lineup and we are STILL missing critical pieces (Felton and Camby and Rasheed) shumpert is on a minute limit, Stoudemire is still getting into game shape after not playing ball for months, carmelo had one of his worst games of the season and the Nets only won by 3 lmfaoooo ... We have been playing bad lately and Nets been playing much better and we are STILL ahead of them. FoH Nets fans you know your team aint **** when the Nets starting lineup got booed at Barclays center



The excuses are non stop. When Kidd didn't play in the first game, we won because you didn't have Kidd. Now that Shumpert and Amare were back, it's nooo if we had Felton, it would have been a blow out. When Felton did play vs us, what did he do for you guys? I think I remember a lot of complaining that he wouldn't stop shooting. 12% from 3? Did you really expect Camby and Sheed to stay healthy all season? They are among the two oldest players in the league, c'mon. You guys can never admit a lose, especially to your little brother, your Brooklyn Nets. You're ahead by one game, don't make it seem like it's 7+, although you guys already claimed the division was over at the end of December.

Our starting line up getting boo'd at the Barclays Center? LOL

Nets are just on a hot streak. NO team coached by 98 year old PJ Carlisimo who hasnt been a decent coach since Wu Tang was hot can ever be anything more than fools gold.

Say what you want about PJ, but last game he outcoached Woodson. Woodson did not see their foul strategy coming, and it hurt the Knicks in the end because of it.

They're a good team and playing very well but let end of season standings speak, they beat OKC, while we beat Mia and the Spurs twice we'll find our stride again and the Nets will fall back to earth again.

Huh?

Jason Kidd missing the FT hurt us, not Woodson's strategy for that particular situation

So nobody noticed that it was Popeye Jones who was drawing up their plays during timeouts?

I was pretty impressed with their double down screens to open up Johnson for open J's.
