Always liked Alec Burkes. He’s a bucket getter.

I'm so excited/nervous about the fact the Knicks haven't done much yet. I can't tell if they're just being smart and patient or if they're gonna go Knick...

Dumpster diving again. And with more one year deals! Apparently we didn’t learn that mediocre guys looking for their next contract playing with a terrible team don’t mesh with developing youth.

I feel this is that guard off the bench who kills it for Thibs. There's always one of those guys...
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

Maybe Obi's vet presence can help get the young Burks to reach his potential

He’s a guy who will net you a 2023 second rounder around the deadline.

Yeah one year deals keep the flexibility open and make him a desirable trade option come the deadline.

39% from three, 89% from the line...at least we’re bringing in a shooting guard who can shoot...that’s something

I mean you gotta fill the roster out somehow. You can't just add a bunch of undrafted FAs. You gotta at least act like you're trying to win.

Burks has been meh for most of his career, but he actually wasn’t bad last year. Flip candidate at the deadline maybe. I’m not mad at it
