We need to sign Parker and Teodosic instead

Mudiay / Parker / Burke
Ntilikina / Teodosic / Baker

He won't start for much longer from looks of it.


Veteran Jarrett Jack started again, but Hornacek acknowledged that could be different after next weekend’s All-Star break. Jack logged just eight minutes — playing the first four minutes of each half. Trey Burke, signed last month, was limited to 7:50.

I like this as much as the first time they tried it in the offseason. That we're short on development personnel is pretty bugged out though after youth development was the main goal all preseason according to leadership.

Pablo Picasso is a better teacher than Jeff Hornacek. These kids, Ntilikina, Mudiay, etc DESERVE all the support they can get. How many Knick rookies were given the "You figure it out..." mentality?

Under former Phoenix Suns bonehead, Magic Mike D'Antoni carried that laissez-faire attitude that Jeff has continued.

Again, I do NOT understand the Knicks' front office fascination with the Phoenix Suns, an organization that has ZERO NBA Championships. The closest they ever got was with Charles Barkley in 1992, who was beaten in 6 games by a Dynasty.

If you're going to STEAL/PLUCK front office or coaching material, you lay out buckets of cash to the most successful franchises. Not guys who are behind the times and haven't coached in years or held a front office position.

Invest in Youth, Knicks...It won't break the bank. The NY Yankees have former players come down to Florida to HELP TUTOR the minor leaguers EVERY SINGLE SEASON. Guess what, it helps a lot.

The Knicks should be the SAME way.

How is your #1 goal development but you don't have enough developmental coaches? SMH

I like Pablo, but one thing both Frank and Mudi need help with is shooting, and Pablo ain't gonna be able to teach them that :lol:


yeah that was kind of sad to read


we really could use a guy that connects and works with these young guys. I think pablo would be a great fit especially with our international flavor...

I like Pablo... but lets keep it real, Pablo was an avg nba player at best... a backup or 3rd/4th string point ... what is he going to teach them? To be avg/backups? Seriously?

What Mudiay and Frank really need are Russell Westbrook performance trainer(the same guy that use to train DRose), Oladpio's fitness trainers and/or a Chris Brinkley type of guy to keep in house.

Craig Robinson is the Director of Player Development. He doesn't develop the players himself. He is in charge of building out a department to do so.

He needs to do better then.

His inbound steals, pesky defense, and play making. Loved me some Priggs. Not sure he's the guy to help Frank be more aggressive on offense though. We need somebody to show that boy how to hold the ball like a running back and go for the layup.

I think Pablo would have a lot to offer in terms of the mental aspects. But we could also use conditioning people. So they could use both types you mentioned. The Knicks could use a lot of help. Wouldn't be wise to not open up the doors to capable people.

Yeah, he has no reason to leave.

Instead, it would be great if Parker and Frank were to workout together over the summer. I would get excited hearing that.
