This is why I don't like "sources".

Nice stat line from KP....no assists though.

Not even 1 assist? We usually bashed Melo for this so fair play to question why KP refused to pass the ball.

Seems like a ball hog so not a great game for him. Let's hope he picks up his performance going forward.

Just watched the vid. Not sure about level of competition? He just looked so much better than the rest of them.

I liked the PG setting him up with a few nice shots. He must hate Rose even more after playing with real point guards.

It's not just about stats. Watch the game and see his impact on the DEFENSIVE side. It's nice to see a star player in NY for once impacting the defensive side.

I was hoping to see him create more shots for himself. He was set up on pretty much all his points but it's still great to see him dominate.

KP looks to be filling in at a nice rate I love that he hasn't bulked up super quick.. I don't think he will ever be super jacked like AD but dude def looks more solid than dirk ever did.


I also enjoyed seeing the Knicks jerseys in the crowd, if our team ever gets it together Knicks jerseys in Spain, France, Latavia, and Lithuania for the olympics

His base is definitely stronger. He can battle better than his prior two years down low in the Paint.

phil's looking like a bigger dumb ass by the day. kp and lonzo would have been an unreal pairing. we could have had a chance to draft lonzo if we tanked from the get go, but this **** idiot had to be an idiot.

KP is that rare perfect combo of Unicorn and God that you don't see in too many players.

A lot of us are super high on Frank and have been since before the draft. As incompetent as Phil looked at times I'll never be able to hate him since he got us the Frank/KP pairing.

I agree on Phil did terrible job at tanking year after year. Not just this year but even the year we have drafted KP. We screw tanking by our mistakes, then we try to go up by trading talent.

Now i don't believe P.Jackson would do trade straight up for number 1 pick…but still what's the point of not tanking properly and get 8th pick to negotiate for higher picks later on?

I hate this old school morality. Just tank you idiot. I hate coaches who don't try hack a Shaq to the bad FT shooters and lose games… or not fouling to stop fast breaks… etc. Do whatever it takes to get a step ahead of opponents.

I hope we tank for real if we can't make playoffs this year.

I'm high on frank as well, but that's not the point.

Even if Carmelo Anthony is traded, with so many very bad teams this season, it's hard to fully tank and play Porzingis too. It's one or the other.
