I'm just glad we're stockpiling all of these garbage man 4/5s. You can never have too many of those.

LOL what? You trying to be funny, clearly didn't work lol



It’s not funny & in fact it’s sad that people can realize that was last offseason. Not “2-3 years ago”. & the only one on the roster now is Julius.

Every Knicks signing this offseason has been a 1 year pact.

When betting on yourself goes wrong. I can't recall such a bad financial decision in my top following sports. Even Sprewell is shaking his head at that decision.

Its worse, it was an ego thing...his grandma said he loved Dallas and all he wanted was 20m/year, that he would have signed for 4/80 blabla

Noel is one of those guys who (after 3-4 years in the league) you knew was destined to be a Knick.
Brian Geltzeiler: You see Mark Jackson getting a head coaching job as early as next year?

Adrian Wojnarowski: Not if people make calls on him. Not if an organization is doing their homework and knows all the things he brings with him.

As an ex Knicks fan I'll tell you why they signed him. They think if they hire a new GM, a new coach, a new President, that somehow free agents will want to come play for them. But James Dolan still owns the team.

So when they strike out on EVERYONE, they sign whoever will take the money, and move on to next year. In 4 years, they will be in the lottery signing one year deals. I would put money on it.

Huh? Who is Nerlens Noel going to steal minutes from? He only played 18mpg last season. You know Juliass will be gone eventually... Obi and Mitch can't play all 48 minutes by themselves.

Obi PF
Randle pf

Mitch C
Noel C
Ed Davis C

Davis is a salary dump but what you're saying here doesnt make sense. Do you think Noel will steal
Mins from
Obi?

If he’s playing 18 minutes that leaves 30 minutes for Robinson ignoring the minutes that Obi and Randle will get at center. You can make the same calculations at the PF position. Frankly the Knicks should just be amassing young talent and focus on developing them instead of bringing in role players

At least he didn't turn in a raging drug addict after throwing away a ludicrous amount of money

We've gotta get rid of Randle by the opener or hot mess.

To be fair, Randle is still 25 — and Obi will turn 23 in March — so not a huge age difference there, about 2 and a half years. Knox doesn’t look like he’s worth developing anyway.

If we do get rid of Randle, then for who and what ? I’m certain the market isn’t hot for him and his services. Initially I was thinking they might parlay his contract into a Westbrook trade, but they’re saying they’re not interested. Wall says he wants out, but I can’t imagine he wants to move backwards and go to a less talented team, rebuilding team like NYK.

Nerlens will never make up the $70m he declined way back when from Dallas.

Better fitting piece. Rozier? Something like that.

Gotta take away the Payton/Randle connection so guys like RJ can be pushed into their proper role.
