it blows my mind how few Knicks players have taken advantage of his presence and willingness to work with them. I seem to remember him being asked a few years back and saying No, they haven't. That is why I was pleased with Fiz having the greats come in and speak to them.


Even Phil ignored Clyde. :lol:

This Instagram account posted a video of a Mitch block right next to the RJ signs. Looking at how high up he gets and how quickly, I don't recall ever seeing Kriscraps getting up that high.

The potential for RJ to Mitch oops is amazing.

Clyde is a great resource wasted by the Knicks

But I do approve of things Fiz did like bringing in Sheed who clearly made a strong impression on Mitch

Puma is trash. But hey, he got paid. Hope the shoe design is something that's worked on more than the P.R.

On to basketball, what part or parts of your game have you been really focusing on this summer?
See that’s the thing, I’ve been working on everything. I want to be a complete player by the time my career is over. Whether it’s finishing more with my right hand or knocking down my jump shot consistently; I’ve been working on everything.

Because they look like things you would break your ankle in IF you played in them. And, no Nike is not the end all be all, but I do prefer to play in the LeBron line of shoes. Best fit for me. Puma's designs look like weak performance shoes.

Lol what proof do you have to back that up?

Also Puma have been rebranding and have done a great job over the last 2 years. This is just the start of things to come to be honest.

He was all arms and elbows true, but one of the best on ball defenders in the NBA at the time.
