If only the Lakers had the same front office as the Knicks, the NBA would be a better place.

They missed on KD and Kyrie, now they loaded up on flawed players with reasonable upside and didn't ruin their future capspace like the previous front office did with THJ and Noah. Knicks are headed in the right direction, just need to convince NBA stars it's worth having James Dolan as your owner, which is a big ask.

Basically they have Gibson, Ellington and Portis under control for two years, but also as expiring pieces to be traded near the trade deadline to competing teams. Eliington and Gibson are prime candidates to be highly sought-after players come the trade deadline. Really good stuff from the Knicks, they could easily get a couple extra first round picks out if these guys, and if the Knicks do one thing well it's draft well, especially outside the lottery.


Anybody making fun of the Knicks the last two days is doing it based on them not getting a superstar when they were front runners to get at least 2. Nothing went right for them. It's like people making fun of us last year..but when you lookup, the dust settles and here we are again with a lot of young talent and a very respectable roster. They did well..really expected a 35 million dollar max for Cousins or something like that..trade for John Wall..idk. lol

I figured they'd potentially strike out, but then mitigate the damage by not signing guys to stupid contracts. If only they just signed vets to 1 year deals and left open their roster to accept trades for stars/sign FA next year. RIP. All that tanking and all those good moves by Mills for nothing. Kind of shows how much the owner matters in the NBA. If the Nets and Knicks swapped owners, would it be crazy to assume that Kyrie/KD/DJ sign in NYK instead of in Brooklyn?

It's a very solid 10 seed team, maybe they'll get lucky in the lottery next year and end up with Wiseman.


awful take. They already had young developing players at 4 out of 5 positions:

PG: DSJ, Ntilikina
SG: Barrett
SF: Knox
C: Mitchell Robinson

they just added 24 y/o PF/C Randle: 21-8-3 34% from three and 23 y/o PF Portis 14-9 39% from three. And they did it by signing them to responsible contracts.

Do people not realize young players take time to develop and gel? No, they don't. Because these geniuses are laughably writing off 19 y/o Knox as we speak. You know, the guy who shot 34% from three and is met with scorn? Meanwhile wOndErBoy Doncic shot 32% from three, was top 10 in turnovers and easily one of the worst wing defenders in the league and he's "generational".

Knicks are finally doing things right and casuals are lambasting them for it.


Look folks -- the only person in the world not impressed with Luka Doncic.

Knox had a negative a/to ratio (1.1/1.5); Doncic's was 6.0/3.4.

Doncic shot .327 from 3 to Knox's .343, but had a .545 TS% to Knox's .475.

Knox's PER: 8.7
Doncic's PER: 19.6

Come on now.

Liked the Philly homer -- and always wrong -- Dorkestra's troll post calling Horford our best player:
