I know everyone might not be aware but legion hoops is like many of these sites/ twitter pages are not reliable. Followers don’t mean anything.

FVV isnt stellar but he provides a lot of what the Knicks need. He brings a winning mentality.

We keep singing rejects that put up good numbers and then want to trade them halfway through the season, not realizing that their numbers was fools gold and they are perennial losing players.

Who here thought Morris would be our best signing last year? Dude was the fourth option on a winning team and he turned out to be our best player and elevated his game.

You have to also take into account that we're not going to find guys like FVV overnight. We need to get RJ Mitch help now to elevate their play. So they know what it FEELS like to WIN. Even if its just a first round exit. Its promising.It builds confidence. Something you don't see on a fckn stat sheet.

I'm all in on FVV and I hope the reports are true that we sign him. No one is signing here in NYC until the Knicks show promise. I don't know how you guys fail to see that by us signing everyones leftovers the last 2 seasons.



At first I was against FVV, but now I see the value of a winning player that’s still getting better.

"He's not worth 20-25 million"


I don't think you all appreciate just how much a good starting PG is paid, even Patrick Beverly is getting $13 million next year.

Brogdon set the market for what someone like Fred should be paid, he's worth slightly more because he doesn't have the injury concerns Brogdon had, and he's worth more than Rozier because he's not a bench player like Terry was when he signed with the Hornets.

I think he is worth Brogdon money. But anything more than that is a overpay and I would stay away imo. And it looks like we have to give him Jamal Murray type $$ to steal him, which I would not do at all

Makes sense, but it's telling that they want him back and recognize how good he is, but our fanbase seems to think he's not even worth Brogdon money. :lol:
