What would be your advice to all the people excited about Bamba then?


has he had a major injury in the past ? i don't know his history like that.


No, but KP didn't either at one point in time. Bamba is basically the same body type/game.

Would you not draft a player like him?


bamba is 6'11. i'm pretty sure there's some scientific data that illustrates that the human body is only supposed to be so big and there's more risks the taller you get.

and i didn't say i wouldn't draft kp. i also just said i wanna keep him. but i think there's more of a risk than the average player.

I swear I heard both at first - one higher and one low pitched - but now I only hear Laurel.


did you listen to the slowed down version because i only heard yanny on those and never heard it on the regular one.

The regular one. I heard both at once and then Yanny faded out and I haven't heard it since.

Anyway, it's nice to hear that he is bulking up. Hopefully not too much where he loses his agility.


We'll all care if he signs with Real Madrid in 2 years.

KP took the self promoting media star trainer because he relates to that. As another poster with expertise on training has stated, it looks like he's going to blow out his knee again based on what he's doing. Not sure if the new trainer is responsible, it's his euro guys, or it's the euro guys but Instagram superstar trainer hasn't corrected it. In any event, based on that, I'd rather we dealt KP now. Which is unfortunate. I like the guy a lot but I've always had an inkling his career would wind up as one big "what if" and that has sort of sealed it for me. Knicks should cash in while they can.

It's probably why they should trade him while they can


i would like to keep him but it might not be the right thing to do. you could be right.


The deal to take would have been last years rumored deal with Boston...Phil was crazy and Dolan would have never allowed it. But that deal would have been sweet. We would have been looking at a core of

Lonzo
Jaylen Brown
Wendell Carter with the BKN pick
Mikal Bridges with our own.

Or we probably could have used both picks This year to move up.

He's just immature and the Knicks are the worst possible organization to mature him because there's no accountability ever.

Yeah, you hear the Yanny sound by higher pitch, then your ears cancels out the whispering, them you hear Laurel. I would say both, but its really Laurel.

Having him actually rehab in with the organization that pays him would be a start. Fining him for missing exit meetings etc. An unproven player making his own rules is ridiculous. The Knicks have leverage with Porzingis.

Yep. Another fun fact about him.

Colker was in an ephedra scandal that followed the death of Orioles pitcher Steve Bechler in 2003. As a physician practicing internal medicine, Colker advocated the use of ephedra – a weight-loss and energy-boosting supplement – while claiming it was safe and effective. He was named as a defendant in three separate lawsuits, accused of falsifying data about the dangerous side effects of the supplement.

Agreed. Unfortunately, he flexed on the organization and Dolan folded. It puts the coach and everyone else in a bad position.

great. thats comforting. KP should be getting the best of supplements then. i wonder if he has to take drug tests while out on injury. Beastly it is.

Bulking a stretched guy after a major knee injury.....that's....smart?

I know he's naturally going to get a little bigger, and because his knee is hurt, he can't work the lower body enough to add a ton of power....but the idea of him looking unrecognizable with his shirt off....with his natural build, his conditioning....I really don't like hearing that as a fan.

Every team chooses potential over what they've seen, almost all the time. Ayton sitting right there.....they're not taking KP's potential after injury vs a brand new horse. If KP were healthy and played at the end of last season, then I could see the Sun's being interested...but that knee put his trade value on ice until he shows he's back to form.
