Final Defensive Possesion:
“Ok guys just stay in front of him. [Insert dedicated FARTDOG guard of the night] has been killing us, just stop him one time.”
“NO LOOK OUT HE’S [Insert basic screen action or beginner level dribble move] STAY WITH HIM.”
“WHAT ARE YOU DOING [Insert Knick player about to botch his defensive assignment].”
“PLEASE MISS PLEASE MISS PLEASE MISS PLE…” *Swish*
Oh what’s that you say, there is still time left on the clock? Well no worries, because I have here a boiler plate scenario for all your end of game offensive needs as well! Follow it closely and you can impress all your friends by telling them what is going to happen before they even inbound the ball!
Final Offensive Possesion:
“They know the ball is going to Carmelo. Please use him as a decoy or at least set some kind of screen!”
*Ball is in-bounded to non-Carmelo Knick*
“HEY MAYBE THEY’RE RUNNING A PLAY!”
*Ball gets to Carmelo in the high post*
“DAMN. Ok. Carmelo is a great player who is tough to guard. We have tons of time. Take him off the dribble Melo! Or even back him down! Or maybe we could even get fancy and have Tyson come set a pick for him! OOOOOHHHHH. Lots of time to figure this out. SO MANY OPTIONS!”
*Carmelo dribbles five feet behind the arc for 3/4 of the remaining time*
“DAMMIT DO SOMETHING!”
*Carmelo dribbles and hoists up a 22 footer. It does not go in*
You’re welcome Knicks fans. I have just saved you endless torment and frustration.
Knicks are now a game back of the Hawks. They take on Miami sunday. They’ll probably win by 20 because Knicks.
