Jaren Jackson really is the perfect fit if we move KP to center. Which we 100% must do.

This is the worst idea ever... KP is too weak. Putting him next to the genetic scrub version of KP doesn't make sense. We have 1 too many PFs shooting 44% from the field as it is.


So You want a 7’3 guy who can’t guard the perimeter playing the 4 instead? Good plan.

Y'all act like KP is getting picked on every game. He isn't. KP is a good defender at the 4. If anything he gets picked on at the 5 because they just bully him. He can't guard anyone strong, can't rebound, and can keep up with dudes like Giannis easily (and he has). Why move him to C? Its like y'all love to imagine KP at C ignoring the actual real results on the court when KP plays C.

You've seen Kentucky. As long as scrub ass Knox is on the team he's never even the worst person on the floor. :lol:

Nah seriously I halfway joke with calling people like Brick Jr a scrub (he's ight) but I seriously mean it when I say Knox is a scrub with no future and whoever picks him is (Please Use More Appropriate Word) (its gonna be us isn't it... Oh lord).

KP is going to get bigger/stronger. He needs to play center if we want to be successful. His lack d rebounding is a huge concern for me though.

13. New York Knicks - Troy Brown, G, Oregon
Brown was an oversized point guard early in his high school career before his coaches realized he was more valuable on the wing. Still, a lot of those point guard skills Brown honed over the years continue to come in handy: he’s a good passer and ball handler at 6’7 and is knocking down 35 percent of his threes. He’s also a quality defender. Brown is the type of player who fills in the cracks. The Knicks could use him.

Move porzingis to center our paint defense improves and our rebounding suffers dont think you WONT need another big man. whether KP is power forward or center we still need a big one way or another to play next to him and kanter/willy/oquinn arent the answer starting wise. Jaren Jackson is a fine pick if we'd be in range your 4/5 is set long term.

Now you **** on JJJ? Negro Please. Jackson is that dude. I would love to have him...But I do agree KP might be a bird at center. Dude just seems soft as **** on the low.
