Porzingiz could kind of score and was a really good defender. Randle is more dynamic. I've actually been asking myself if Randle is having a better season than Melo has a ever had with the Knicks. Melo is a better score and turns the ball over less, and there is something to be said about not turning the ball over. The difference between one or two turnovers can be as impact full as a player having one or two blocks, and I have found myself shaking my in amazement this season the same way I was when Melo was dropping 28 and the season after. If he can keep it going though :nod:

Am I nuts?

He's definitely on Melo's level.

Melo's 2012-13 season was unreal. Led the NBA in PPG, Knicks were 2nd seed in the east, and our second best player was JR Smith. Lol. Randle is having a great season but not quite on that level.

Not only a chance. Randle more or less begged them to sign him. He has a tattoo of Dallas skyline on his arm. Dallas made some really questionable decisions in free agency over the last couple of years. Never showed any interest in the local guys.

The all Dallas lineup + Doncic/DFS:
Doncic/Smart/DFS/Randle/Turner and probably still capspace to add more

Instead we get the Cuban and Nelson formula. One big hit in the draft/free agency. Followed by 5-10 years of missing out on max free agents. Good enough for the playoffs most of the time because they have a top 5 player (Luka, Dirk). Rarely a real contender.

The crazy part is the defensive end. If someone would have told me 1-2 years ago that between both KP would end up as the defensive liability...but here we are. KPs defensive decline has been really bad and Randle is more or less a net neutral that actually adds some value with his rebounding.

SHocking as it is, he has been even better than just neutral defensively. Randle is a genuinely good defensive player this season.

And yes, i expect the Knicks to be again a bottom 4 team in the east.

Randle needs to prove that he can play great within a winning system. There is a reason why the Mavs had never any interest in him, even with him being from Dallas

Is it time to wake him up?
