And the Knicks will be the same if they hire Mark Jackson and his 48 minutes of isolation basketball.

Everyone was so mad that the Knicks didn’t even interview Thibs but the dude had not adapted to the new NBA. His defense doesn’t work with everyone shooting 3s and his minute management and offense is trash. KAT and Wiggins are going to be burnt out by 30 if he remains their coach.

Forget Phil. WHY oh why did the Knicks pass up on Thibs and instead hire Mike D'Antoni?!?!?

I did appreciate Thibs benching Towns. All the hype on Towns, he hasn't been a very good defensive player and that's the message Thibs is sending...you are not above getting called out on D.

Warriors will beat Rockets for sure, if healthy. Meanwhile teams should be going right at Harden because history says he'll wear down.

Butler and Teague seemed scared. Towns wasn't getting the ball. The least of their,problems were Rose and Crawford. Those the only 2 that came to play. Wiggins too but he has low basketball IQ

Minny has had major issues since Thibs arrived, I just expected them to look a lot less sloppy in the playoffs. They looked like they had no plan of attack.

KAT is gonna bounce back I have no doubt about that. He's gonna have at least a couple monster games probably when they go back to Minny

I'm still on board with the Rockets and Paul but they both have playoff reputations they need to shake.
Towns should get a pass, its his first playoff game at 22. It looks like he's going to be known for having poor defense though.

Like Melo, CP3 is a career loser when it's playoff time.
