MRGTFOMF has instantly changed the makeup of this team.

His defensive presence in the post basically solves the riddle of how to position KP who can now defend more fully along the perimeter while continuing to contribute weakside blocks on guys heading for the rim.

The defensive wingspan of MRrob, KP + Frank will cause havoc for other teams.

Pause it @ .08. Unreal the size he is and how high off the ground. Thank you basketball gods.

The Knicks can have a Gobert-Favors type defensive duo except with offensive skill that the other one doesn't have.
Ugly win > Pretty loss
Those who'd rather see their team fail so they can be right are fans of their opinion not the team.

I'm sure it'll change. Frank was #17 and KP was #46 for Summer League.

i remember watching some of his highlights of Robinson hitting jumpers and even threes

I haven't seen him shoot yet, to his credit

i wonder how he will spread the floor on offense

he seems to cover a lot of ground in setting picks and rolling and moving well overall but in the NBA you need to shoot when you are left open

that'll be interesting

Mitchell is not as coordinated as David was. Probably the most fluid athlete of any 7 footer ever.


Six years Naval Training had a lot to do with him being so coordinated.

I hope he gets off social before the season starts though. Fans will be brutal once the losses start coming in.

Could Mitchell be David's secret love child?
