Im going about our recent struggles in a calm manner(although im pretty mad)
Iv'e just been thinking to my self of what we need and how we can do it, Because honestly something just isn't clicking. Maybe were just one big win away from getting back on track but something deffinetly needs to change.
1-Fire Terry Porter
This option is very unlikely because for one Kerr is stubborn and very good friends with the guy. I like the guy a lot but he has no offensive gameplan which has worked so far and has destroyed something that did not need fixing. Our defense has also not improved a considerable amount to compinsate for our offensive struggles.
2-Trade Amare Stoudemire
Now this move would honestly be very drastic but if you really wanted to shake things up this would be one of our only options since most of our guys are untradeble anyways. Now i'm not saying trade him just so we can trade him, we deffinetly need value back and he may very well leave after 2010. I hope we don't have to do this but im just laying out options.
3-Start running a lot again
This is pretty obvious and i think most agree with this anyways but if we want to start winning games maybe we should just get back to the old ways and see if we can do what we did with Shaq last year. Its sad that we even came to this though considering we had the best offensive coach last year
Any ideas trades comments? I also wonder what we could get for diaw/barbosa although they've deffinetly not been the problem and diaws played very well.
After returning from the locker room alone, Porter told the media that Nash might soon take a greater hand in this offense by controlling the ball more frequently. Nash could then create plays, shots and spacing. Effectively, it means the offense no longer starts in the post.
"It's a lot easier to control turnovers from one guy than from 12 guys," Porter said.
And then the coach tossed the window open:
"If Formula 1 isn't working, you go to Formula 2," he added.
To recap: In one busy day, Porter called his team off the court, proving who's in charge. Then he admitted the potential error of his offensive design and showed a willingness to change. It was nice to see a coach hold everyone accountable.
Im just gonna put this article in there for whoever is interested, its pretty interesting credits to 3stat3
