What is so hard about this basic concept for our franchise? KP can not only drain 3's, but he can attack closouts well with a midrange pull up or can take it to the rack.

Such a huge mismatch in our favor & we need to take advantage of it this year.


You are missing the point that winning and winning strategies are not in our favour


It will be best for his development IMO. That's where he belongs. Start now.

Also, we are so terrible up & down this roster that I doubt it even makes a big enough difference.


Starting players from lower position numbers than the intended target is a common development practice

Didn't Aaron Gordon always play the 3 and now he's the 4 this year? From highlights he's looked wayyy better. It's amazing how much being in a different position makes you look average to All Star caliber

Thats the point, if he didnt work on his ball handling and shooting like a true perimeter player he would still be a bum and never unlock his full potential

Josh Jackson looking like the real deal a few plays in a row

Edit - then that bugger goes and makes a bunch of turnovers. He's not caught up to NBA pace yet. But he looks great on D which is quite rare for a rookie.

When I watch other teams they just seem so much more fluid than us. I don't get why the Knicks just look off and not fluid on offense.

It almost feels like the Knicks play with a smaller floor on offense and then I watched the Sixers highlights and there's so much space between everyone. It's like the basketball court is so much bigger for everyone else.
