This isn't a playoff team 

Post#1 » by damedash09 » Sat Nov 18, 2017 8:29 am

This team away from msg is 100% uncompetitive. The team has benefited from a very home friendly schedule so far

Coming up- From Dec. 27 to Feb. 2, the Knicks play 20 games, and only four of those are at home. They have an absurd January with 12 of 16 games on other teams floors. Things could get ugly fast


I'm expecting this team to end up in the late lottery around pick 12

We’ve also benefited from weak teams if we’re keeping it 100.

After the next game they win it's a playoff team again.

That is correct.

This is fool's gold.

We were winning because of KP's hotstreak which consisted of hitting tough shots left and right all night, in other words, unsustainable.

We are missing a starting caliber SF and bench depth.

When a guy like Lance Thomas is in your rotation, it's probably a sign that you are not a good team.

Nah, they play the Clippers at home without Beverley, Gallinari & Teodosić.

DeAndre Jordan about to get 25-30 rebounds against us. You heard it here first.

We should switch KP on him to slow him down.

Usually the Knicks wait for the 40 game mark to let all the air out of the balloon and crush your soul. Kudos to them for thinking of their fans by making clear the team sucks before the 20 game mark.

I fully expect .300 ball from here on out.

No breaking news here. The team is rebuilding. Seeing KP having dominant games must have had a few thinking above what this is. This team may not be top 5 bad, but the playoffs should have never been a fan thought. it is was, it's not the teams fault you thought that.

If the front office would have any sort of long-term vision we would be gunning for that 5th overall pick.

You must want the Phil Jackson approach of gutting the team every year, then using the cap space on a really bad vet.

This regime is opting for cohesion. They'll lose games, quite a few to be honest.

If you want the 5th overall pick or better....you have to trade KP.

Just like every other bad team they suck on road. I expect them to win around 10-12 games on road and 18-20 at home.

yes it's not a PO team but it's not the most important thing now. This season we just need (like now) to find a collective, an identity and just see if KP is really ou true FP (not like Melo...) for the next decade (and currently we see that. We need to change our image in the eyes of the league. Po is not the most important this season and we need to add another 3rd good potential next to Frank and KP in the draft.
