Our captain Julius Randle. Give these guys time to figure it out. I’m almost confident they will turn this into a product we thoroughly enjoy. These aren’t yester year’s Knicks…


There’s reason for some hope. We’ve seen glimpses of improvement. Anyone know when we get Mitch back?


Hard to say, he’s in a concussion protocol but I have doubts he’d be able to pass one of those exams even without a concussion so it could be a really long time

LOL. I don't understand it. Mitch practices against Stone Hands all the time and doesn't get hurt. The good news is that this isn't a recurrence of a prior injury. We should be running out of injury body parts soon.

“That’s part of it for sure,” said Steve Nash. “Our spacing has struggled at times and also has hurt our pace a little bit. So we try to find different combinatitons that work and also that style of play. Keep pushing towards an identity. We’re not a team that can just iso and just play slow because we don’t have a ton of shooting out there.

So if we’re going to play against loaded defenses, it’s going to be hard no matter if your name is Kevin Durant or James Harden. It’s just tough to go one-on-two, one-on-three with that picture. We’ve got to play quick, move the defense, move the help and attack.


If it's difficult for legit MVP future HOF's to play against loaded defenses... How much more so if your name is Julius Randle....

Thibs needs to enforce pace, quick decisions, and player and ball-movement.

Whoever doesn't buy in...man up and cut their minutes or bench them... :dontknow:

Stop the slow, plodding, stagnant, ball dominating Randle-centric offense.

So true.


If someone taped me during a Knicks game and posted it on Twitter or any other social media, they'd get a lifetime ban.

And not just because of my gimp suit.

The Suns broke our winning streak last year.

It would be nice to return the favor

Let them play full-court 1-on-1 for 2.5 hours. I’d pay to see that. Oh the humanity.

Well, it says you get 3 guests so that makes it a bit easier. RJ, Clyde and Breen.

No idea who many of the others are.
