Im hearing that more players are questioning playing in the bubble...


The whole concept is weird. They’ll be stuck in the bubble without being able to leave but the staff/cooks/cleaners/security can come and go? So not only are they being isolated..... it’s not really a bubble. They’ll still be interacting with people who could have COVID 19.

Add to that Hurricane season coming and Florida seeing spikes in COVID 19 and yeah I understand why players are questioning this. It’s not planned out well.

I'm okay with moving the New Jersey Nets in a separate one-man league. They'd probably get more fans too
The mission: to end false narratives about the Knicks

Example of Fake Narratives:
-The Melo era should be celebrated
-Phil Jackson was a good GM
-Randle could be good as a third option

"With Nurk and Zach and guys being healthy -- that's what we've been looking for," Blazers forward Carmelo Anthony told CBS Sports before the NBA's 22-team plan was approved. "I feel like if we have a healthy team then, yes, we want to go in. We want to go in and compete because I know we would be able to compete at a high level if we have all of those pieces back."

Melo staying ready
"I work out every day. I train every day, whether I go to the gym, I'm in my garage, I'm outside in the park, I'm doing something," Anthony told CBS Sports. "I'm active every day. So my mindset will always be, 'stay ready, you don't have to get ready.' Over the years, that's what got me over the hump."

He originally said the season would take away from the protesting and what really matters.

But Woj just came out with an article of what Kyrie was really asking about and why he didn't want the season to start back up...

Sources say Irving asked, as an injured player, if he would count among the Nets' allotted 35 people should he want to join the Orlando bubble? Could he sit in the stands to cheer on his teammates? Use a sauna for his rehab?


He had a question about NBA sponsors on campus, and whether they would be supplying players with products. A union official asked him for an example, and Irving mentioned a popular adult beverage -- before insisting that he had indeed simply shared an example; and wondered what food might be provided to players under league partnerships.

On a black level, I understand and support kyrie’s message but I’m glad that drama isn’t based with the knicks. we have enough scruitny to deal with.

Pistons found their GM. They may be picking in front of the Knicks so hopefully this guy is not good when it comes to the draft

Don’t know if anyone has watched Melo’s IG lives but they’re pretty cool. He talks about a variety of issues from police brutality to if he will retire as a Knick with random fans.

Carmelo is the **** man. It seems like every night he goes live on Instagram where he does a segment “what’s in your cup” and he goes live with random people around the world about what wine they are drinking. Great conversations he’s just a really cool dude.

Can't wait for LeBron stans to come out like "Yeah he the GOAT but this time he didn't have Dwight and Bradley so he never really on good teams."

Caption: Sometimes the smallest changes can lead to the biggest results with The Art of Shooting. You’ve been shooting the leather off the ball, Kevin. Adding muscle memory is far from easy. Keep up the great work. Your dedication and passion for the game at a young age is rare. @kevinknox #NBA #LethalShooter

Wasn’t sure where to post this, but good to see Knox grinding. I think a lot of his issues on offense were lack of confidence. As bad as his season was, there were moments where he was doing things we were begging for him to do last year like taking it to the basket, occasionally making some really nice passes, and some legitimately nice defensive moments.

He’s far from a sure thing, but just like Frank, I’m betting and rooting for a kid who has the physical gifts, seems very likable as a person, and they seem to work their ass off to improve. He’s only 20 and if he can piece things together he could be a nice modern 4 because I think he’s not quick enough to be a 3. Keep grinding Knox!
