Who is creating shots for others on the Knicks? Elfrid Payton and who else? And let's not act like Payton is CP3 as a playmaker. Team lacks shot creation.

The Knicks are built for 1986. When I go death lineup, how is that ball stagnant slow lineup going to matchup?

Iguodala on CJ. How many playoff series have we seen Iggy be instrumental in getting a win? CJ is chump change compared to how he's handled LeBron.

I won't take anything away from you as a GM you've made good-great teams consistently. But for a chip this BAT, McConnell Peterson and sefalosha can't fill big enough roles. They can't make shots consistently.



Thanks... no team is perfect. You're always going to have to sacrifice one piece regardless of the direction you choose. If you have a superstar, you'll lack great depth. If you have great depth, you'll lack a superstar, etc.

Bledsoe and Kawhi were good enough to win a championship imo... I had a solid cast surrounding them comprised of tough players on both sides of the ball, vets with playoff & championship experience, guys that complimented them well stylistically, and enough scoring to win games as my defense would keep the opposition's point total relatively low.

I'm still cool getting to the Final 4 again tho... can't win em all.

I don't have a floor spacer?

Juancho shot 40% from 3.
Andre Iguodala shot 36% from 3
James Johnson shot 34% from 3

Not to mention James Johnson plays on the perimeter. Anyone that watches him play knows this. He's an attacking forward. He don't play in the post.

The old 1986 lineup comeback...how cute. If you really believe this roster isn't flexible enough for today's game, that I don't realize JAmes Johnson is a perimeter player, that Joe Johnson isn't worthy of playing PF against your bigger post-options at the 4 in JJohnson/Juancho, or that I am going to guard Iguodala with CJ...I've already won.

Tbh, I thought it was a coin flip between you and swiss. Would've preferred to go against you for rivalry purposes, but relieved that I'm not going against Kawhi. CJ McCollum and a pair of extinct Centers aren't putting the same fear into me.

Devin Booker in an offense with 3 playmakers in the starting lineup to set him up? Averaging 25 a game in the finals. Eyes closed.

:lol:



His role on my team is quite small. Death lineup of James Johnson at the 5 creating 10-2 runs quick.

Plus my team is back court based. Your strength is at the 5.


The depth tactic won't work in a Finals. Stars play heavy minutes in the finals. No one care about your 11th man right now fam.

We've seen the importance of pace of play and transition offense in the NBA today.

Booker could very well be better then CJ next year & I'n not asking him to be Kobe like you are.

Dwight has never faced a physical match in Whiteside...played against Vucevic, Jokic and KP.

And the best player Mecca has faced was Me7o.
