Honorable mention yo Zach Randolph. Mo Taylor has my vote though. I remember Mo having one of the nastiest facial dunks I have seen that got called offensive foul because of a slight arm extension. Only thing I liked about him was thst 1 play

This kid dating back to summer league just can't get on the court. I say this in full seriousness...this kid is trending bust big time right now. And the one game he did play, looked very pedestrian.How many months now has he been bothered by some lower leg thing?

Yeah yeah...I know...give him a chance. In the meantime kids we passed up look much better and are actually practicing and playing. Not happy man...

I expected this type of reaction...you aren't concerned AT ALL that this kid is constantly banged up with leg/knee issues? He's can't even get on the court to practice. Knicks medical staff is horrendous, constantly hide injuries etc.

it's a long season and we don't plan on being any good so what exactly is the rush of getting him back? He played an extremely long euro season. Much longer than any college player played. So whats wrong with being extra cautious in the preseason when its not like we need to get out of the gate running either when we are trying to lose.

He's had teammates bang into his knees twice, and they are being cautious because preseason is mostly meaningless. The injuries are different, and not related to each other.

These are things that happen in basketball. Plus, Frank has still been working out and practicing individually. He just has not been participating in contact drills or scrimmages.

It's not like he had a torn ACL, and then stopped teams from looking at his medical records. That would be more concerning.

There's NOTHING wrong with having low expectations. I'm all-aboard team tank...if you look through my post history. However, he is a young kid who for going on 4 month's basically can't get on the court. He missed all of summer league and the instruction that took place there at least all the games played. Training camps opens he again can't get on the court and in fact isn't even practicing with the team.

Maybe I'm just a beaten-down Knick fan...I don't like how it's going with him one bit.

being cautious and having low expectation are two different things. We can still be cautious and expect good things from Frank. Will these meaningless preaseason games really make or break franks rookie year? ??

Again, the concern is NOT that he's not playing in pre-season or even summer league games. These games are meaningless for purpose of any records etc. Where they are meaningful is legitimate competition, learning, instructional purposes etc. The concern is he is falling behind in his development, the fact that he isn't practicing with the team and only marginally at best picking up the schemes, working with other players etc. to me is a big problem. Can he catch up, yes, absolutely, problem is he's been a Knick since June and he literally can't get on the court. So when it's December and he's still nursing various lower body injuries...that won't concern you?

However, I've been a Knick fan since early 90's...I know a problem when I see one, even if it starts out...oh, we are just being cautious.

In fact, at this point none of us even know if he can play...he can't get on the court.

The problem you are identifying is that he's losing development time, which by your own admission he can catch up on, because other people banged into his knees on two separate occasions?

And that that will impact his career in such a way that will be so detrimental for the entire life of his career that he will be a bust?
