"I haven't heard D'Antoni say one thing in defense of Melo in the media even though he's been getting hammered all season. That's awful coaching. You're supposed to defend your players and figure out how to use them.
"Melo is being lumped into the bad defense talk by reputation. He hasn't played poor defense this season. I can name players that have dominated Lin or Amare all season. I can't really name anyone that has torched Melo."
Ed.'s note -- Good point. But did you use the words "defense" and "Melo" in the same sentence?
"Need A New Phil-osophy (JACKSON)!!!! New Coach"
- Brian Woodall
"Fire him then get Phil Jackson!!"
- Stephen James
"Phil Jackson is not coming here.. Yeah its a nice thought and if gives you sweet dreams then good for you.. But he has no interest in taking over this mess.. Its a moot point.. If you people really want Mike Woodson to be your coach then yeah fire DAntoni now.. Other wise shut up.. Jackson is not coming.. Enjoy your delusional fairy tail world.. I will keep it real."
- Jer Troiano
Ed.'s note -- Right now, Phil only needs to worry about which of his 11 rings to wear today. He does not need this craziness in his life. Does he?
