The sense of entitlement from Knick fans is nauseating, and the media playing into it doesn't help. I was so glad their arrogance was met with despair and pain last night. I laughed so hard when I saw dude pull their card out at #3.

I hope Anthony Davis gets traded to the Lakers next.

We need size in this rotation in order to take another step forward.

Mfiondu Kabengele would be a welcomed addition to the team. Brings that toughness to the team they need.
Who's going to sacrifice for their teammates here? Defense? Unselfishness?

Bleacher Report has us taking Hachimura and Kabengele with our two first rounders. I would be extremely pleased if we can add those two to the roster.

That would be a nice haul.

I'm a little down on my boy Hachimura. He kind of reminds me of Sabonis in some ways but IDK. Too mechanical to be a 4 for long stretches. Not a great feel for the game which I think is the most underrated part of drafting guys. Someone like Jarrett Allen jumps out as a rookie because he always made good quick decisions on offense and defense. Definitely has a lot of potential though. Would be nice to grab him at 17 since he was looking like a top 10 guy earlier in the year.

Btw, speaking of Sabonis. The Pacers could make him available at the draft or FA due to the fact they aren’t tying to extend him and pay Turner at the same position.

Tacko Fall just measured out to 7'5 without shoes with an 8'2 wingspan and 10'2 standing reach. None of these numbers make any sense.

I would take him and develop him. Best situation for him is here.

Not sure if this is the right thread. But is anyone else hearing that Zion does not want to play in NO and is considering going back to Duke? Has he signed with an agent? What's the go?

Don't think there's any truth to it. That would be the dumbest move of all time.

It’s a media stunt. No matter what he does, New Orleans will always have his rights

Read that he hasn't signed with an agent yet and can return to Duke if he wants. It's a big risk, but I expect a big game of chicken. I still can't see him going back to school. Next year is uncertain, and he could go into a worse situation. in the mean time he would be giving up $10M AND one less year of his prime making years not to mention endorsements that he can't legally make while in college

Isaia Cordinier, the 6’5” French shooting guard acquired last July in the Jeremy Lin trade, tells a French basketball site that he will play for the Nets in the Las Vegas Summer League.

Who's going to sacrifice for their teammates here? Defense? Unselfishness?

He looks good. Perfect type of guy to take a chance on. Wouldn't mind having him on the Long Island Nets.

I've been bringing up his name for a couple of months now. Depending how much roster spot we have, I think he can have a chance.
