    Eight Points, Nine Seconds Preview:
    A Few with Donahue

    Breaking from his seemingly perpetual contempt for our stupid minds,
    Tim Donahue has graciously decided to film a Twitter-lengthed preview
    and explain why it’s a tremendously bad idea to break up the most
    stable lineup the Indiana Pacers have had for years and replace it with
    a unit that has only played together for 19 minutes – and played
    together poorly.

    The Importance Of Being Melo

    Let’s just get this out of the way right now. Carmelo Anthony, as we know
    him and in general, is an overrated product of the 2003 NBA Draft rivalry.
    Talented, yes, but overrated with an underline.

    If he were drafted in 2002 or 2004, he’d be judged in better balance, but
    as of right now, his reputation is based upon the mythology of his high
    school career, and how he (impressively) led Syracuse to a title. But no
    other player in recent years has been given the superstar label so easily
    coming out of the Draft, save for John Wall, who is struggling mightily.
    His collegiate championship was well-earned and Olympic success is
    clear, but his work as an NBA player is as promising as it is flawed, and
    those are the only sides of his coin as a player in the league.

    Analysts always talk about his outside shooting sweetness and rebound
    rate, which are impressive, but they always fail to mention that he’s
    more singularly-faceted than anything. He’s basically the same player
    that he was at Oak Hill. That’s a failure in evolution.

    So now he’s a star player for the New York Knickerbockers. He wanted
    New York and now he has New York in the palm of his hands, and he’s
    not capitalizing with his play and the scrutiny is getting to him. He’s not
    a great team player. Not that he’s a bad team player, but just that his
    play is sub-standard for non-All-Star-laden teams. If you notice, he
    shines on Olympic teams, because of his singularity of skills; he’s asked
    to shoot/score and nothing else. Also, because he knows that he has 11
    other players that rival his skill set, he actually makes it worth a damn
    to elevate his play and defer; in the NBA season, because he overvalues
    his skills and (in-)ability to actually take over games, he sells out his
    teammates by isolating in nearly every single position.

    He’s like a Terminator with a bad CPU — he needs reprogramming, but
    he won’t go back to Skynet for updates. He’s offline.

    In order for the Knicks to survive as a winning basketball team, it must
    be clear that Melo starts his game from scratch. Make the right pass,
    shoot the good shot, keep the offense in flow, because we now know
    that he was breaking the flawed, but effective D’Antoni offense when
    Jeremy Lin was inserted...CONTINUE READING KNICKERBLOGGER

    We'll see if the refs will actually call fouls in this one!

    We're pretty much forced to return the favor and run them out of the gym.

    Well, there is no surprises tonight! Knicks was playing horrible ball and was arguably the worst defense in the league until their coaching change. So, maybe Pacers was shocked by it all, who knows. But they know now so get the tough pills out Pacers and we will get the popcorn ready! Pacers, Don't make us choke on our popcorn!!!

    The Knicks are/were dysfunctional, but not devoid of talent. Maybe the coaching change will pay big dividends for the Knicks. It certainly has for the first 2 games.

    I saw that Mike Wells said there's a chance Barbosa could play tonight. Anybody have any idea if he will?

    It will be nice if he is with the team tonight! Just seeing him on the bench will be pretty cool!

    If the pacers struggle defensively early on I think Vogel will have them play a zone.

    "But, first, let us now praise famous moments, because something happened Tuesday night in Indianapolis that you can watch a lifetime’s worth of professional basketball and never see again. There was a brief, and very decisive, and altogether unprecedented, outburst of genuine officiating, and it was directed at the best player in the world, and that, my dear young person, simply is not done."
