    Knicks have some characters on this team. Morris, Portis and Gibson is a hell of a rugged front line.

    Barrett looks good though. It’s been entertaining.

    Barrett with a nice line for a debut. Knox, good on offense, rough on defense. Randle was fantastic. Team needs to draft a real PG or find their guy. It'll hold them back if they don't.

    Still, good signs for a team that has no expectations.

    Knox needs to start. Either play him instead of Morris (who is a good player btw) or preferably go with Morris and Randle front court and Portis comes off the bench.

    Fun game for RJ, stinks they fell apart up 97-91, whatever.

    Felt bad for Frank coming in cold late Q3.

    Bad luck too with Taj missing the dunk for an assist and refs not seeing/calling the goaltend.

    I just don’t see anything more than the defense with Frank. His two TOs killed the Knicks momentum. Knox looks smooth on offense, but, he is so bad on D. Getting matched up with Derozan did not help. He’s not ready to start. He’s still very young, but he really still has a lot of development ahead of him.

    This is Barrett’s team already. Randle has a chance to be here long term. They need another high end player, and maybe they get that player in the 2020 draft.

    Which PG do you think would be best for us? I like that red-headed italian guy out of Arizona.

    Portis doesn't do much for me.

    Knox will take his lumps defensively. But f it. They're not winning anything anyway. Go for entertainment.

    Barrett, Payton, Knox, Morris, Randle.

    Haven't paid any attention to these guys yet, but I would not want anything to do with Lavar Ball. LaMelo is very good, but Lavar being around would not be ideal. He'll want to be involved, especially after Lonzo has come out of college and not been a stud, as he expected.

    The one thing about the Porzingis trade is that extra ammo the team has for trades either to move up at the draft OR for a player that is losing a spot to an incumbent. Could even grab a player that is ready to move on from their team. Lots of things change as the games are played.

    It's also one game and none of the PGs really did anything outside of Payton. Smith was very bland, but he had next to no preseason time with his back injury. Frank sat for a whole half and came in and stunk in his 3 minutes time. After the whole team stunk for the first 5-6 minutes of the game, I'd hope that is more from it being Game #1 than anything else.

    He's a top talent. No one is passing on him cause of his father. He will go top 5, if not top 3.

    I suspect that will be common with Irving. He had a lot of good games in Boston and it did not result in wins/him being a difference maker. He's not a lead guy. He's a robin. Him playing with LeBron was perfect.

    Maybe. His father is a weapon's grade asshole. One brother has been massively underwhelming as a pro and is a head case. The other brother created an international incident by being a moron.

    It's a remarkably stupid family.

    lol

    Did he say the same? I don't really listen to him.

    Anyway, majority of the NBA stars are robins. That's why they're trying to team up. There's really only two leads now: Lebron, Leonard. Durant before he got hurt.

    Davis didn't do much in NO by himself.
    Curry and Klay are better together. Neither will carry a team alone.
    Antetokounmpo won't win a thing unless he gets another top player to go there.
    Etc...

    I can see the Knicks being in no rush to draft anyone out of France for awhile...especially another point guard

    If we're being honest on who is a lead, I'll say Harden. Chris Paul was not the same player last season and the Rockets were very close to getting past GS again, without Durant obviously.

    With Westbrook, their hope is getting someone a little better and someone that will actually be able to play games instead of being hurt.
