What did Phil Jackson say to Melo.. I Noah guy

knicksgrizz1029“IT’S REALLY SPECIAL TO PLAY AT HOME, JUST TRYING TO STAY IN THE MOMENT BECAUSE IT’S REAL EASY TO GET CAUGHT UP IN EVERYTHING THAT’S GOING ON”

“THIS BUILDING MEANS SO MUCH TO ME. THERE WERE A COUPLE TIMES, IT WAS VERY EMOTIONAL FOR ME. I WAS VERY NERVOUS. BUT IT WAS THE BEST, IT WAS THE BEST FEELING.”

Jokiam Noah

From the moment Noah was drafted from the Florida Gators you just knew their was something special about him. He wasn’t always the fastest or most athletic but you couldn’t out work him.

Saturday night he got to show the garden faithful just that, for a player who only scored 6 points he impacted the game greatly. Noah held Marc Gasol to 20 points on 5/20 shooting. However it was his passing that really stood out.

Noah finished with a team high 7 assist. Often grabbing a rebound ( he had 10) and leading the fast break then finding a open man down court. How many true centers can do that in  today’s league? One maybe two.

This was huge for the Knicks who finished with 24 assist on 40 made shots. The ball movement which is so prevalent to the clubs success was their on Saturday night.

For all the talk about Rose, Melo, and KP Jokiam might just be the Knicks most important player. Let’s be clear the Knicks will probably struggle to defend all year long, but as long as Noah can protect the paint and get key stops they will be ok.

One thing the Knicks can’t win with-out is ball movement. Their bench is to raw for a one on one offense. Rose and Melo can’t play iso ball and exclude Porzings.

This is were Noah is key. If Noah has the ball players Noah ( see what I did their) he will find them easy shouts. So you will see guys like Lee and Rose cut to the basket. You will see guys like Melo and KP set screens to get other players open looks.

Noah gets the offense moving and keeps the pace at a blistering speed which is a “Major Key” for the Knicks.

Plus the yelling, chest bumping and his overall demeanor make the Garden a much more exhilarating place to be.
