PBT Extra: Do the Knicks have big problem in Big Apple?

Today on PBT Extra Kay Adams and I are talking NBA playoffs, and that has to start with how much trouble the Knicks are in. It’s not time to hit the panic button for the Knicks, but that was an eye-opening loss on both ends so they might want to at least know where it’s located.

We also talk about the MVP voting “controversy” and how that Kevin Durant guy is pretty good.

    When your superstar couldnt care less about playing defense why should anyone else on the team care?

      HOF’er C.Bosh was MIA in MIAMI.

    Do the heat have big trouble in the big crapshoot?

    • melkipershero - May 6, 2013 at 10:03 PM

      They for sure have “big” trouble ;)

      Is it just me or is Wade amazingly overrated? Dont get me wrong hes very good, but he makes about 5 stupid plays a game.

      Let them have won tonight and they’d have 3 articles up already LMFAO.

      I swear these contrary MFs are high comedy to me. Thumbing down the truth because they don’t like it.

      The Pacers apparently won the series yesterday, but they thought they were going to sweep the first actual playoff team that they faced, then lose and the same trash talkers will be singing a completely different song.

      And unlike the Knicks, the Heat don’t have to play against the refs, so they legitimately got outworked by an “inferior” and depleted team. This is why you need to stop trolling the Knicks and worry about your own team.

      • melkipershero - May 6, 2013 at 10:29 PM

        I was on your side. Game 1 isnt even close to the whole series. For instance the Heat lost game 1 to the Thunder last year and the Bulls in ’11. Like I said yesterday, NBA refs are horrible.

      • eboneseagles - May 6, 2013 at 10:34 PM

        Chicago has the most heart I’ve seen in a long time.

      • fanofevilempire - May 7, 2013 at 7:11 AM

        They can’t talk about their team in the playoffs because Cleveland
        went home at the all star break.

        Knickerbockers will regroup.
        Get ya popcorn ready.

    Bulls by 7? LOL!

  4. melkipershero - May 6, 2013 at 10:37 PM

    Anyone figured out why the Heat trap? All it does is leave guys wide open for 3’s.

    • Mr. Wright 212 - May 6, 2013 at 11:17 PM

      It is a good strategy against the current guys on the court for the Bulls. Miami will take its chances with Nate getting hot, but they CANNOT leave Belinelli open all game like they did tonight.

    Whatever problems the Knicks have, Miami has it worse. The Bulls won by 7. Although Rose probably won’t play this series, Hinrich and Deng will. So, will the addition of Hinrich and Deng make it easier or harder for the Heat?

    • melkipershero - May 6, 2013 at 11:05 PM

      It doesnt matter its going to be hard no matter what. The Knicks problem is no defense. The Heat play D. Their shots werent falling but i give the Bulls D credit for that.

      • Mr. Wright 212 - May 6, 2013 at 11:19 PM

        The Knicks play D (how the fact that the Knicks and Heat averaged the same PPG defense for the season, and the Knicks surrendered 100 points in quite some time until yesterday), the problem is blown assignments and letting off the pedal at times, which Miami ALSO does.

      • Kurt Helin - May 6, 2013 at 11:30 PM

        The Heat gave up 100.5 points per 100 possessions, 7th best in NBA; Knicks gave up 103.5 per 100, 17th in NBA.

      • Mr. Wright 212 - May 7, 2013 at 1:22 PM

        95.0 PPG, 95.7 PPG. Points per possession, blah blah blah.

  6. xli2006 - May 7, 2013 at 7:32 AM

    Pacers have the better Defense, Post Game, and Paul George matches up well against Melo. Pacers are also built to be able to handle a “chippy” series as well if Game 1 is a sign of what’s to come. Rivalry renewed, should be a grind.

  7. goirishgo - May 7, 2013 at 5:27 PM

    Difficult to win big series’ against tough teams when your best players aren’t leaders.

  8. paulhargis53 - May 7, 2013 at 7:02 PM

    Mr Wright reminds me of Belushi in Animal House….

    Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?!

    Forget it, he’s rolling….

    Dont let simple facts and statistics get in your way, numbskull.

    Congrats, your the Knicks version of lakerluver……that’s not a good thing.

    • badintent - May 8, 2013 at 1:29 AM

      hey, you finally crawl out of that boat in the backyard ? Crawl back in. maltliqor says you still got be kobeluver for the second round. You are on report. Stay the hell off Knick blogs, your Boston team is done. join the Minuteman and go find some Jihad vermim.Do something constructive for a change. Stats are for losers, loser
      Knick 20+ beatdown tonight. Get over it.

    • Mr. Wright 212 - May 8, 2013 at 4:04 AM

      If you can point out once where something I have spoken about to not be true (i.e. not something you DISAGREE with or don’t like), then I will give you your just due.

  9. yournuts - May 7, 2013 at 9:33 PM

    One game does not make a team in trouble.

  10. paulhargis53 - May 8, 2013 at 8:47 AM

    bad: GFY. I’ve tried continually to post under kobeluver and it doesn’t show up in the thread, not that its any of your business.

    Because my team is done, I don’t get to post on Knicks posts?!
    I can and I will. Because loathsome fans like you and Mr.Wrong have me hating the Knicks.
    Mr.Wrong got schooled by Helin and his response is just priceless and typical.

    Don’t worry about my name, I will make it right with malt somehow, but lakerluver, kb2408/bozosforall needs to get off this website.
    Signed,kobeluver
