I'm not going to get my hopes up but maybe he'll eventually turn into something, nice highlights and his passing is impressive

I agree. He seems to know how to play the game and he’s not afraid. Not the quickest guy on defense but I think that he could eventually be a solid backup. The one thing that caught my eye was that his dribble was way too high. So he really needs to improve his handle if he’s going to play in the backcourt.

Obviously I'm rooting for the best case scenario, but he looks a half step slow for the NBA and his handle is only "ok" for a PG, especially one who looks like he'll struggle being quick enough.

Trade Burks and bring Rokas over on a cheaper contract.

22 points… looks like he’s already shattered the career high of some other Knicks prospects who shall not be named. Get very hyped

I ran some of that through an early beta version of a speech translator I found online. About the only thing I could get out of it was
He patterns his game on the most amazing point guard who started for the Knicks last season.


We're worried the next Luka will wind up with the Mavs again, so it was a good move to stash this guy.

Also not sure if trolling, but I'd say it's still Luca > Rokas (and it's not a knock on Rokas, but rather Vildoza is a really nice player). Though stylistically they're different, and Luca is a finished product (more or less) while Rokas should still get noticeably better.


ROKAS >>>>>>>>>> LUCA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I hope so

On the last highlight, he even did a little Luka wincing face after the bump. He has time to work on his game over there. He'll have to start understanding where the refs are so he can throw up his arms in their direction after the no-call.

Draft and bitch.
