Ntillmatic is OUR GUY 

Post#1 » by Mecca » Mon Jul 10, 2017 12:02 am

In the words of Blu, "misery loves company, but I don't need sh*t, so don't come to me."

It feels like we've became so accustomed to losing, we've almost become obsessed with it. That the losing has gotten to us. The dysfunction, the corruption, the inept nature of our entire foundation has rubbed off on us the wrong way.

Our Owner sucks. He's terrible. He really symbolizes what's wrong with America. This dude is a BILLIONAIRE and has never had a real job in his life. He was the product of being born into his riches that allowed him to run Cable Vision. He was the son of the original CableVision owner. Think about that. Dude had a has zero job experience before being President of CableVision and MSG Sports.

I still love the Knicks.

Ntilikina is OUR guy. I'm sick of y'all being Lakers and Mavericks stans now. No more regret of who you wished we selected. Ntilikina is a 6'6 PG with a really smooth jumper.

For example, he hit 78/100 shots in the celebrity trainer and former Knicks' assistant Chris Brinkley's workout. Kevin Durant hits 80. Good shooters hit 70.

The kid is literally gumby as a prospect. He has elite tools that you can't teach. That wingspan is going to be a problem when he learns how to create.

A handle can be developed.

A lot of people have grown impatient because he didn't play in the Summer league. Do not be a product of your emotions. Ntilikina is our guy. A 6'6 PG with his skill set is going to be one of the most intriguing players to watch from a pure basketball standpoint.

He has a slow release though. If it was a lot quicker I'd feel a lot better.

This is straight trash in itself. I hate people that think like this as if people choose their damn parents. His dad worked hard so he didn't have to. Plenty of parents set their kids up. Get over it.

Even Hornacek mentioned speeding up his release but noted like you said, having the ability to shoot over smaller guards. He really needs to work on it.

Greenie,

It's not if being born rich is trash. It's when those kids don't become educated or work before receiving their riches is trash. Dolan has 0 job experience.

I mean... Maybe if he played PG at some point in his live vs non HS level guys you'd see less posts like the others. Play in the summer league rook you don't have the clout to skip games.

if he was hurt he shouldn't play. he'll have his chance to impress. but as i said in another thread, he's gonna have to show something. because he's gonna get compared to other guys we could have took all year long.
