That's good, because it was done with tongue in cheek. You can laugh with or laugh at and you've got seven amusing voting options and the freedom to cast seven votes that you can change at any time. Only correction I have to make is they are not all definitive yes poll questions unless you count sending Frank to Siberia as a vote of confidence.

Obviously, Frank is a god and I understand if it is going to take you a few years to catch up. We'll be here laughing all the way to the parade down Broadway. I'll ask Frank to save a seat in the back of the Caddy for you. Bring popcorn.

Stan whoever you want. Hate whoever you want.

Just have consistent logic.

I just love that this thread was started because I asked the question in a previous thread and Clyde did the honors beautifully.

Having said that, DSJ legitimately looked like a player last season that didn’t belong in the NBA. He truly was that horrendous. And I actually loved (okay maybe really liked) what I saw when he first came over to NY).

Here’s to hoping they both take strides in the right direction.

DSJ seemed depressed last season. Had some family issues I thought

Hopefully Frank does well enough to change peoples' minds, and reinforce those who like him and the desperately needed defense and IQ he brings

Was surprised to see Frank already killing the corner 3...would love to read more about it. We gotta encourage him to keep taking that.

He might not be the most dynamic on-ball player, but with his defense, passing ability, and the addition of good shooting, he has the ability to be a contributing member of a championship team and any superstar would want to play with him...and honestly, guys like that get paid. He's gotta keep going, though. Can't let himself get stopped mentally.

-The Melo era should be celebrated
-Phil Jackson was a good GM
-Randle could be good as a third option

He's going to enjoy being Frank's teammate in a few years when he comes over to the Knicks.

the defensive core of frank, rj, and mitch is a great start.

yes, they're young and make mistakes. but us knicks fans need to be patient with these three. if these guys can grow and play together with the right coach, it'll be incredibly easy(ier) to insert a star who can do their thing to make deep playoff runs - as long as the knicks don't trade assets for the star, and sign them outright, like it should be to do well in the NBA.


if donovan can learn shot selection a little better, imagine he, frank, rj, XXXXX, mitch, in about 3-5 years?
