And when we get the no. 1 pick in the draft in 2018, just remember who put us on the right path from game 1. :D (Hint: I'm setting you up here! Don't disappoint.)


:lol: don't have to worry about that cause it's not happening at all!

I am so glad they moved the start of season two weeks early. I am done with NFL so waiting till November is brutal.

How is Melo going to go off in this game, if he's in Portland?

Kinda joking

You're right. I think we'd have noticed this earlier, but nobody wanted to think we had to wait even 2 more days for the season to start.

I really hope Frank is starting from day one. There's valid arguments against it but I'm in the camp of throwing these kids in the deep end.

If Frank is the type who gets psychologically scarred if thrown at the deep end at once, then he should have never been the pick at all.

If Frank plays good D on Russ and KP/Willy outrebound Adams, its an easy W. Dad Melo always owns PG.

I don't think being mentally ready is the problem for this kid, he's a quiet assasin. I have no concerns.

But he has the build of a sg, he may not be quick enough to handle legit starting pg's. lonzo ball probably isn't either but lakers are going to let Clarkson guard the quicker guy in the starting lineup. Frank and timmy together may not be enough ballhandling and quickness so i could see that as a reason to not start frank. Maybe they move timmy to 3 eventually and play Frank in a secondary ballhandler role at sg.

I'm bored too. But our first preseason game is October 3, which will be here fast. Also, once training camp starts, we'll start getting Knicks news.

This is the worst part of the off-season.
