im ready for the knicks to start winning with defense.. tired of our team getting exploited by point guards every year and dsj wouldnt of fixed that. i dont care if frank isnt super explosive or yamming it down every play. If he can run an offense, find kp, hit shots and play elite defense im cool with that at point guard.

Flashy guards only work and win you championships when your name is steph curry or your playing next to lebron. all these "cool looking guards" in the league yet we continue to see the same two teams in the finals

Frank's handle looked significantly better in his workout video. In fact, he looked like a future Giannis, which is probably why Dallas were desperate to get him.

yeah im sure it wont be the only thing he has to work on. All rookies have areas in their game to improve on

From what we know now, frank has good size/frame and length. Can shoot, unselfish, defensive impact, and high IQ with intangibles.. id say thats a good starting base.

im worried about him staying out of foul trouble over his handles to be honest because he's such an aggressive defender i can see him picking up alot of ticky tack fouls rookie season

Every rookie needs to learn. Even some veterans needed to learn about fouls.

I'd rather have a pg like Ball over one like DSJ. Ball clearly makes everyone better, he was making Kuzma look like an allstar :lol:

Cavs are done. That team peaked and they don't have the assets to get better. The only thing left for them to do is tear it down and rebuild. They aren't winning another title. Really there are no significant moves out there to be made for them to improve enough to reach the Warriors. It's over for them

Lebron being concerned with the Cavs situation means that Cavs will be more inclined to move Love for Melo.

Nah, it just means LeBron will be leaving after next season.

Teodocic got a deal where even if he picks up the player option, the Clippers are only on the hook for 2 mil.

Why can't we do deals like this?
