I wanna think its more like we wanna be a farm team to the rest of the nba from a rebuild trade perspective. Many of these guys might be traded off. In some cases it might be alot of your second tier guys.

For example KP and Frank are our top tier assets, somewhat untouchable. What you hope is that group of guys that really don't have a long term future play well enough to be appealing to an established team

Lee
Oquinn
Beasley
Kanter

Maybe you package them for more picks. The guys below them become backups while we essentially await those picks to be drafted.

I said it before and I'll say it again: BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU ASK FOR.

KNICKS fans begged for a rebuild and to tank. So when the FO delivers it, they complain. :banghead: :noway: :crazy:

Huh, TIL 7 days = 2 weeks

And it's preseason, players sit out all the time for non serious injuries. Look at Chris Paul, he sat out the game against us and is perfectly fine


chris paula and frank are two different players. we already know who chris paul is. frank has only played a few minutes against the brooklyn nets in preseason. he has no game action. practice wont help him. frank is still very raw . he doesnt know the nba yet. he only played against scrubs in his league. the more time he gets, the better we know what kind of player will he be. dante exum or george hill

I'm sure the coaches are already evaluating him during practice and in the little they've seen of him in preseason. I think you're just impatient. It's going to be a long season. There's no need to force him to play in any preseason games if he's not 100%. I still remember McDyess going down in preseason playing too many meaningless minutes. I'd rather the coaches be cautious.

How is he unknown? Dude was a top-10 pick and was one of the best players in Michigan history. ****, he has like 175,000 followers on Twitter.



Well, I mean Snooki has like 7 million followers and her 15 minutes have been up since she got arrested on the Shore in 2011...but still, Burke is known if you follow the NBA.

Trey Burke will be fine... you all tripping for nothing, who do you want the Knicks to sign at this point of the season? Kid is only 24 yrs, with starting NBA experience .... he actually improved last year... and definitely ain't Shane Larkin bad...

I could make a list of who is available now... but you will puke.... LOL

Someone mentioned CJ Waston? Why? Guy is 33 yrs old... on a decline... some of you Knick fans a confused... SMH

Who do you want? Monte Ellis, R.Stucky, B.Jennings, L.Barbosa, S.Rodriguez, D.Williams, Mo Williams etc.... I can keep going... Norris Cole(Euro money), Ty Lawson (China Money).... etc

Like the Burke signing. Dude is tough and fiesty and has something to prove. Unlike sessions and jack who are just going through the motions

People want a competitive tanking team...I don't think both go together. If we were winning games or competitive people would be complaining that we are winning.

Tanking sucks, but its a necessity...basically we need to be focused on individual performances....like if KP goes for 30 and we lose by 20...who cares...thats a good day.

If Dotson has a good game we should be happy...if Frank continues to show development...but I don't want to be sweating this out at the end of the year where a win could f*ck up our chances.

We need to lose and lose a lot to lock us into a top 5 spot to get us a difference maker.

We are coupling young wing players with old ass point guards who couldn't turn the corner on a pick and roll and do something for themselves, our pick and roll is ****, it doesn't lead to anything, it's being stopped and once that happens all the other movement stops too because our pg's are getting choked on defense, once we get hedged hard we are toast.

The nicotine kid is constantly a no go so I can see how Jeff went and pounded Perry's door and told him to get him a young point guard who can actually **** run. Might not correlate to wins, but should be a better pick and roll with a guy who is a threat to score, especially on a fast break. I like it.

Feel bad for Jack though, he was saying the right things and looking for a chance to teach, but oh well.

No way we cut both Sessions and Jack after seeing how valuable abbey presence at point guard is.

:o

Not gonna lie, don't know much about him....just going by the fact that I've seen him light it up a couple of times in D.C. and he's young so he probably runs faster than Jack and Sessions. For a team of this **** caliber, that's good, right? :lol:
