First time in years I'm pumped for the Knicks season. I was unhappy with the Knicks front office at the start but they surprised me a put together a nice little young team that can grow and have put themselves in position to draft a game changer at the end of this season.

Contract aside, a return of Lance Thomas would be good IMO for OKC. Even considering the contract (IIRC $7 Million/ year ), is not bad in the current NBA.

He can indeed also play the 3/4.

I'd do it, but IDK if it's rational—my love for Lance is boundless

OKC bench looking type thin but I think Presti is hoping a Huestis or one of these other young cats emerges. Basically I think he'll be cheap until he has to do a deal around the deadline.
A new era or error?

Unfortunately for our 2018 draft pick, I honestly think that this years team will overachieve and do better than the knicks of last year.

Knicks still lack talent but I think the defense will improve and the ball will start moving well on offense.

Most importantly I think porzingis' game will make a big leap this year.

OKC should have asked the Knicks to include Kyle O'quin and Kuzminskas in the Melo trade.. in an exchange for a protected future 1st.

Gotta go for Melo. KP needs to earn it from us first, Melo put in his work already.

The Knicks do not play on the 17th, it is the 19th

The Melo Vs KP matchup will be interesting to an extent. Westbrook Vs Frank will really be interesting.
If winning matters, the role shouldn't.....the results should.

We will lose by at least 25 points. And that’s ok.
