I think Hornacek gives it to Frank in small doses start and see how things go. I expect Sessions and Baker to get a lot of those minutes at PG. But it'll be fun to see Frank take some minutes against Westbrook just to gauge where he's at. Wouldn't it be great to see Frank play some serious defense on him? :D

Damn. Already. I predict the Knicks win this game. In fact I think they will have above .500 record by December, then teams start to play real ball and that's when the Knicks stink but not enough to get a top 5
Pick.

if Knicks would win every game of the season and post season you wouldn't have to worry about tanking. Rite?

The Knicks need to avoid the hot start they had last year so they are better positioned when their yearly 2nd half slide happens.

Here's the game plan against Westbrook:
1. Knicks bring back Plumblee on a 10 day contract.
2. Start Sessions against Westbrook and he is told to play hard D
3. Sessions fouls out and we throw Burgundy at them.
4. Burgundy plays longer, but still fouls out
5. NOW we bring in the Kraken - Plumlee - who fouls out in 6 minutes with his second flagrant 1 against Westbrook

FINALLY

6. Frank takes the floor and thinks, "Who is this guy Westbrook? He can hardly move with the ball. I got this covered!"
