As far as Fultz goes, he has MUCH HIGHER assist % than Ball. And that's with him essentially playing with talent that equals most major colleges JV team.

pretty impressive to me that he managed to average 6 apg on that sorry squad and that he kept passing to those scrubs game after game when it was clear that they just couldn't get it done

Franks upside is way to high to pass on for fox.


If Fox is available. You take him. Simple as that.


Nope not over frank.

Pretty much. Like I said, if you put him on a better team he'd likely look even better than he already does. As it is, everyone and their mom pretty much knew what the Huskies game plan was and they still couldn't really slow him down.

Knowing the Knicks luck and their class of organization we will probably go 3-1 in our upcoming road trip :crazy:

Weird to think that such a meaningless game could make the difference in our draft position and could potentially change the course of the franchise for years to come

No matter who wins, the result is good for us. Both teams can be caught given our schedule.

I think you have to root for Orlando in this game. Get both teams to 26 wins only one behind, with our schedule and their games left with Brooklyn, I would feel pretty good with at least one of them if not both losing a game to us in the next 12 games.

Yep but absolutely true. The Knicks need to put their manhood on ice and just lose. However and whichever way possible. LOSE. There is no moral victory that can be had at this point by winning any games that will matter in the big picture. No one is going to remember or care if they close another miserable season on a high note.

Not even the 76ers can hide the fact that they are tanking. I see their best player available only played 25 minutes. :lol:
