Jeff said he likes Lee at the 3, but won't start him if the other team is playing a bigger lineup.

WTF is that?

It doesn’t matter. The starting lineup isn’t set in stone. But I told everyone kanter is better than Willy

Which makes the Jeff's argument unlogical.

With KP at 4 we've already a bigger lineup. Lee at 3 wouldnt change that and I would start him with Dotson, Noah, Frank and KP to star a real identity of playing defense, sharing the ball and running some actual sets. Frank the point guard, Lee the point forward and Noah the point center :)

I still don't view Kanter as better than Willy. I just think they are positioning Kanter to pump up his trade value hoping someone bites.

They’re basically the same player defensively, but kanter is more explosive and dynamic off the block.

I kind of like that idea. They have been stressing defense so...it makes sense from that perspective. Kanter starting makes me gag.

Yeah but Willy is the better passer, just as good a rebounder, and slightly better defensively. Willy also has a cheaper contract and is younger.

Frank
Timmay
KP
Kanter
NDour

I know we don't have NDour but he fits pretty well with this lineup. The length with him, KP and Frank would be insane. Remember, Gaines really liked him too.

We have to start considering where to rank Beast of NDOUR in one of the most clutch Knicks players ever
