    I respected Nelly for that! I hated him as the Knicks coach. i still respect him greatly.

    Tournament after tournament it's the exact same stuff with this team. It's not the system, or the continuity, or anything else but the players. That's been the case since 2014. 2010 was a team full of guys who bought in to playing "team first" basketball. Even the guys who in that tournament objectively played like crap were a hell of a lot better than our supposedly "brilliant" players. 2012 was the same thing for the most part because every vet other than Melo was that kind of player. These guys we just keep making excuses for that we never made for anybody else. That doesn't strike anybody else as odd?

    That stare, full of basketball IQ For those who don't know Serbian it says:

    "Are you sleeping well Kevin Durant?"
