Can we change the poll to just Træ v Sexton v SGA?

Let the war BEGIN!!!!!!


Craft God aka SGA

Frank-PG-truthers get their wish as Frank can defend 1's as SGA is 6'6.

Frank-SG-truthers get their wish as SGA is a pure point that plays with excellent pace and craft. Hoops like a New York PG too.


He may be a stud bro but I just dont think he offers much extra gravy we dont have in Frank already, Frank projected to have the pace n craft too with his long strides n IQ


I'm sorry fam, but I don't think Frank ever becomes the level of pace/craft that SGA already has. SGA's craft is on another level, which is why I compared him to Andre Miller. Even has a post game like Dre. I haven't seen any flashes of Frank doing that.

I can’t hate on this but another guard?

We’re gonna seriously lack in the SF department again next year.

sexton + frank as the 1 and 2. tim as 6th man.

next year's draft is STACKED with SF's. which is why im pushing for this idea of drafting sexton.

Worst 3 point shooting team in the league shouldn't be targeting more guards who can't shoot. I like SGA but the Knicks don't need him. We need to pick up our tempo, play faster and have a counter offense that can compete with other teams. SGA is just another half court system guard who really doesn't have range on his shot, isn't very quick or explosive, we don't need that.

Which is why we should start Treyverson ROS to see if he can be that guy. Sexton has a chance to switch me after his impressive SEC play. It comes down to if he is a playmaker or is he a scorer for me. But then I think back to Westbrook and Curry having those same concerns out of UCLA

Tough to see that now we are in that dangerous part of the season as a tank squad with trap player performances most of the teams will basically let you do your thing
