not much to report on in the meantime, i suppose.

better that than the same back and forth silly arguments about nothing to fill the time.

Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but, per SI, here's a nice take on Frank from an opposing team scout:

"Frank Ntilikina is better than people think, and it’s too bad he’s getting put in this bucket of 'Phil [Jackson] took him for the triangle, and now he’s gone.' That’s the most lazy, stupid comment of all time, because that kid is big [6' 5"], he’s skilled and he likes to play defense. He wasn’t playing at a superhigh level in the French league, but the team went to the finals and he contributed to that. It was the right pick, because it was a swing for the fences based on talent, and he’s got a lot of it."

Me too. No better way to get ready for Russ than checking Wall and Beal.

No need to rush back anyone of significance for a meaningless preseason scrimmage. The games count for real next week. Rest em.

i'm not sure what's taking him forever to recover from the knee honestly.

Doesn't the team have precautions from dealing with banging knees during practices and games? We've dealt with this too many times in the past

Kneelikina is still hurt? Wth is his knees made of glass? Lol only the Knicks would get young players who have injuries or recurring problems like KP.

We have an assistant coach named Steve Senior? That's pretty rad.

I get it now..... he's too good and they are afraid he will ruin the tank if he plays too much, I see you stealthy tank FO.....
Ugly win > Pretty loss
Those who'd rather see their team fail so they can be right are fans of their opinion not the team.

Yet if it is your weakness, then teams will exploit that as well.

Who would've thought that banging knees can keep you out for over a week? I would be out for a month, cause I would barely walk let alone run drills.
