21 (Randle) + 15 (Portis) + 10 (Gibson) = 46M > 32M (Porzingis)

My goodness

Porzingis didn't want to be here, and he had already proven than he can't stay healthy. I liked him as a player, but the Knicks had to move on. :banghead:

Hello, Mr. Dolan?
Yes, that's correct.
Mr. Durant's representative hung up the phone before I finished relaying that you were concerned about that amount being offered for a player that just suffered that type of injury.
Yes, Sir. I'm afraid so.
Both Irving and Jordan as well.
Yes, unfortunately all of that has been confirmed, Sir.
What's that, Sir? Did I hear that correctly?
In response you want to sign every available power forward to contracts in an attempt to cripple the market?
Umm, Sir, that's not the alternate plan we had previously agreed upon.
Umm, Randle, Gibson and Mirotic? Sir, Mirotic is returning to EuroLeague.
Then Portis or Morris instead? I believe that both Morris' are Klutch clients.
I know how you feel about dealing with Rich Paul.
So, that's Randle, Gibson and Portis? Whatever amount it takes?
But, Sir, wouldn't it make more sense to cripple the market by targeting great shooters and 3&D specialists?
Mr. Dolan? Umm, Sir?

Yes, Sir!! Understood. Randle, Gibson and Portis!! Consider it done, Sir.

Keep beliving that Knicks FO ****.
Even if that is true its because the incompetence of the front office.

Losing KP is all on FO. Even on mental side, they're responsible to build a team, build a plan, hire a good coach and make your star player happy and optimistic for future.

Knicks are like addicts who promised great things like KD and Kyrie if they quit abusing the drug of their choice. They obliged but those promises never materialized. Now the knicks have relapsed to their old ways with no end in sight.

So the Knicks are looking to run “bully ball” in a league where you’re not allowed to touch an opposing player. Seems like a sound strategy.
