Fizdale's offense looks awful, the Knicks haven't generated anything except mid range jumpers off of sets. Also, Burke is back to Trade Burke. Love Frank though, he is a fun guy to watch.

I think Julius Randle is undervalued and appreciated. I would love to have him so we could be the most athletic and worst spaced team in nba history.

I just realized I'm probably the only one in the world that's not a Knicks/Hawks fan wasting my night on this game. It's been fun though.

Kevin Knox is the anti-ferguson he's launching any time he sees the rim.

Feeling good about NOLA being my surprise team.

And glad Melo.
