Its early, so hopefully it happens later. He needs to get stronger and reliable 3 pt shot before anything else.

He trains with Brickley when he comes back stateside. It's impossible that he doesn't play pickup games.

Didn't THJr train with Brickley also?

These guys need to find someone else, apparently.

A lot of the elite players either train with Brickley or Hanlen.

I'm not sure one is better than the other.

Here's a question: how much do we think Frank is rocking there? 10lb for the big plates and 5 for the small ones. Say 5 for the bar. Is that really 35lb or are some of those plates doubled?

And why is the trainer wearing jeans and loafers with no socks? WTH is going on over there? They must be in France. Probably smoked a cigarette afterwards.

Lol. thats all perception.

some of the greatest yogis have the largest stomachs.

your therapist/instructor (this guy is a movement expert, physio with a top of the line private practice) is only as good as what's between his ears..

For Frank to have a career he has to get stronger so he can post up more and shooting from 3. He’s not going to be this explosive player off the dribble so he has to work with what he has. Which is his physicality and shooting stroke. I’m rooting for the kid.

If we get Kyrie I would LOVE to see DSJ coming off the bench in full attack mode. He can still average about 25-28 minutes per game and would constantly put pressure on seconds units. This seems like a perfect role for him and I simply believe he could be very valuable in that position.
if he starts pouting like he did in Dallas, it’s not gunna work lol


He got a different attitude here. He already said bring all of em to New York.


Agreed and sometimes fans dont get that there is something called justified aggravation. I mean the guy had a near ROTY level rookie season only to watch a team trade for a forward who they play at PG and tell you to become a SG. I get that Luka is amazing but why couldn't he just be amazing at SF or SG? And of course we always feel hey you're getting paid just shut up but hes not here because he pouted. Hes here because his team made a decision that negatively impacted him after having a solid rookie season. And idk too many players who find it easy to up and change positions they dominated in thier whole life. Some would rather even play less minutes at thier own position than start getting moved around cuz it just starts opening wierd doors that never was supposed to be opened.

Frank Ntilikina was drafted as a PG and who knows what position the guy is. But because hes so damn passive with that annoying drink the Koolaid act guess what's gonna happen. He'll bounce around every position we can give him until hes out of the league. So in a way I can identify with a player saying no, I dont wanna start that **** show at the start of my career when last year I gave you 15 and 5.

Let's face it, sometimes coaches just get these wild ideas but it's your career. What happened happened, I'm not even trying to bash the Mavs. Life isnt fair and there are casualties sometimes. All I'm saying is I choose not to hold it against Dennis' charactar.

Not that I got an issue with him doing what hes doing. Cuz truth is for all we know the kid grows yet another inch and for sure is a wing so for those roles you gotta be stronger but I think you hit the nail on the head in terms of what he needs to do. I already know hes a fundamental robot.

I wanna see him loosen up and just practice reacting, playing off of instincts and looking like he enjoys the game. Stop acting like some Larry Brown disciple.

It might be a 75lb bar.

This is a false statement. The pickup games don't start until the the playoffs are over, and since Frank has been a Knick he has been seen multiple times playing pick up games in Manhattan with the players that normally fly in.

I don't think frank will be a knick and i think he gets traded to team like the spurs for one of there first round picks. I also see the jazz a team that might trade for him they have lot free agents so they need a shooting , same with the blazers they also have lot of free agents i could see them trading there first round pick for frank. Unless frank has a great summer and really improves on his offensive game that's the only way he stay with the knicks. I don't think perry, ,mills, and fizdale has any faith in frank improving his game on the offensive game.

I get the impression he hates being a Knick and the Thanos snapped away groin thing was passive aggressive protest for never letting him be the PG but trading for two and signing two others (three with Billy Garrett) out the G-League.

I get the wishful thinking but I don’t get why people consider him a part of the team going forward.

I see no scenario that he’s a Knick come opening night.
Utah, Charlotte, Indy, Denver, SAS, Memphis, Orlando, etc could all be suitors. I’ve said it before, he’s done himself no favors really but I don’t like the way his development was prioritized here.

He’s gonna eventually find it, most do, but it’s not gonna be here.

I honestly am getting this feeling as well. We'll see what happens but as long as they don't trade him for a second rounder or a scrub I won't freak out. I would prefer to see him continue to develop here but I have ...... faith....... that the front office knows what it is doing.

Exactly. Unless it is the light bar which is 15lbs, but Frank looks like he is using 145lbs there.
