Knicks forward Anthony Mason (photo) last week issued a warning to New York fans that a certain amount of patience will be required as the team adjusts to new coach Don Nelson. "It's annoying to get booed because we've never been a team not to give 100 percent," Mason said. "We give them one or two games where we don't play well, especially in the middle of a learning process, and we get booed. People here are knowledgeable, but they're quick to judge."
Feel free to apply that to whatever you want, silly judgemental New Yorkers.

I don't know where you're from but around here the term silly sounds pretty judgemental of itself, so I'll assume your being self mocking.

We may be silly but at least we're not afraid to offer judgements when asked, even if they're noncommital. But few New Yorkers would nitpick other's posts all day long then disapear when asked direct questions. So rather than just being coy or argumentative why don't you state an opinion.

Do you think a coaching change could do this team some good (assuming a coach of equal or better quality as Chaney)?

Do you think this team plays with anywhere near the consistent effort of Mason's and Pat Riley's Knicks?

Do you like the Marbury trade?

Yeah, it would behoove us to make the playoffs, just so the trade we made doesn't bite us TOO hard. If the Knicks miis the playoffs, get in the lottery, get decent draft position, just too see Phx make the pick, will make me sick to the stomach. Isiah must really think we can make the playoffs. You don't make a trade like that to still be in the lottery. I wish sometimes we were more pateint, but some people would say we were under Layden. I think Layden's ultimate downfall, was that he was so secretive. Instead of being honest with us, and laying down what his vision for our team, he always played it close to the vest, while stockpiling undersized PFs. The undersized PF's he stockpiled he would then use to try to lure a teams' best player with (i.e.) I'll give you Weatherspoon and Harrington for Tracy Mcgrady. In his mind I guess this would be a trade to good to pass up.

BTW, I find it pretty ironic that you'd pull such a quote from the days of Don Nelson to make a case for patience. Nelson was a horrible fit for NY. The players hated him and got him booted before he could finish one season in spite of a winning record.

For a guy as opinionated as yourself I've never seen anyone dodge a request to offer their views as much as you. You're such a sniper. Why don't you just come into the open and answer the questions and get it off your chest. You'll feel better. There's no right or wrong answers here.

Oak,some peole just like to manipulate stats without taking a stance,so that way they cant be second guessed......

The guy was a staunch supporter of layden,eisly and was VERY optomistic on the Knicks from day one..that was the last time he came into the open.....

Now he just likes to flip flop and throw out meaningless stats...

Like when?

I answer all questions directed toward me. You and your boyfriend just have a tough time reading between the lines.

Tell that to your boyfriend.

You have a habit of doing this.

1. Knick news happens.

2. Rashidi posts his views on what just happened.

3. You ask me what stance I am taking.

4. You call me a flip floppy coward because you didn't figure out that my stance is listed in #2 if you look hard enough.

Most recent example... I give a whole spiel on why Rasheed Wallace is not that much better than Keith Van Horn, and you ask if I'm in favor of a trade or not. Shouldn't it be obvious? I guess I need to dumb down my posts a bit for the benefit of our reading audiance.

Jeez Rashidi, just scroll back up the thread. Not like they are the most significant questions in the world, but these just happen to be the most current you didn't answer.

Do you think a coaching change could do this team some good (assuming a coach of equal or better quality as Chaney)?

Do you think this team plays with anywhere near the consistent effort of Mason's and Pat Riley's Knicks?

Rashidi,Oak is incorrect by saying there are no WRONG answers here...

A blind man can evaluate talent is??????????? WRONG
Upper body strength is useless for basketball is???WRONG


LOL....i assume you mean me when you say oak and his boyfriend cant read between the lines..I cant speak for anyone else,but you are the only poster where you have to consistently read between the lines,due to sarcasm,or just the inabilty to simply state your position..

You do realise there is a big difference between telling someone upper body strength is useless in a contact sport and that you wouldnt trade van Horn for Rasheed...Plenty of people feel exactly as you,they just simply state it

try it sometime,you mat be suprised at the outcome:no:

Aw. Pity.

Ok, so if I say

"Kobe Bryant is better than Tracy McGrady and Michael Jordan combined!"

Do I have to state that I want the Knicks to get Kobe Bryant? Do I have to assume that you are not smart enough to put two and two together?

Rashidi, can you chill with sarcasm and attitude a bit. The "your boyfriend" comments to son of Oakley are uncalled for. A little more straightforwardness and less sarcasm would be appreciated. You're an asset to this forum but you are causing a bit of testiness here. sure, we are not going to agree on everything but it does not mean we have to be nasty and condescending during the debates here.. and just because someone is better than another it doesnt mean someone would want us to make a trade for them. for instance, I think Kobe is slightly better than Marbury but in fact, I think Steph is better for this team. I think you like to keep everyone guessing your opinions and calling them stupid if they dont get where you are coming from. I dont think this style of posting is conducive to a good and constructive way to debate and talk about our Knicks. Just tone it down a lil bit please. Thanks.

Only if you keep them from stalking me.

How many other posters mention me directly in their posts? And with such frequency? They compliment each other daily and attempt to double team me at every turn.

It's giving me the willies.
