This is a huge year for Donovan Mitchell. That’s 1 player I’m keeping my eye on this yr. if he makes the leap, similar to the D-Wade 3rd yr leap, the Jazz can be legit finals contenders.

Mitch needs to be more efficient and get better shot selections. 2 things he can definitely do.

Not only that, with Kyrie taking on the workload this season I expect his annual injury bug to hit for him.

Wouldn’t be surprised if it turns into Melo & Stat injury wise.

Kyrie holds it down, Durant comes back, Kyrie becomes basically unplayable, Durant gets his weaknesses exposed and eventually gets a bunch of injuries

And the Morris Brothers should go into action movies. They could be like the cousins in Breaking Bad, except they'd be white and from the suburbs.

Sort of like your fantasy of becoming a black porn star from Compton except you're white and from Long Island? :lol:

The knicks are mentioned because the nets are accomplishing everything people hoped the knicks would. Plus the Knicks is still media bait because of how large they are so the media picks at them for fun.

If the Knicks signed KD the media would have 1000 stories about them signing a guy with a devastating injury, how risky it is. When the Nets do it, they are doing things the right way. Make no mistake about it, the only reason they mention the Knicks is because they are an easy target (as they should be for now until they win) and the mentions generate clicks/views.

Everyone should have been used to this kind of treatmebt by now...we knicks fans have been through this for so long -- stuff like these are merely only like mosquito bites.

Yep. Bill Simmons and a few knuckleheads here wanted the Knicks to sign him. The price has now gone up for our big men.

Another example of the value of dodging bullets by not committing to damaged players. Perry has shown high level prudence which I respect.
