I wanted Mark Aquire to Coach this Knick Summer League Team.
Randolph Morris will spend the majority of his playingtime as the Center.
Renaldo Balkman will spend the majority of his playingtime at the PF-position.
Why the above, because Isiah got two 6.8 players out of the draft that is best at the SF-position (ONLY).
When in reality on the Basic Talents of Randolph Morris growth in the NBA, he should be working out hard (ONLY) at the PF-position for the next 4 years in the NBA.
And Renaldo Balkman for the better of his growth in the NBA should be working out (creating) at (ONLY) the SF position for the next 3 years in the NBA.
The most important thing to look for in this Knicks Summer League team is a Big-Guard (6.4 to 6.6) that fits in well with Mardy Collins talents in the backcourt on both sides of the court. That is the MAJOR concern for this Knick Team!
President Isiah Thomas draft night was "SAVING-FACE" to help out all the missing talents of his Star Center Eddy Curry, and his poor MLE Jared Jefferies (walk over Frontcourt line). When both Marbury & Crawford decision-Making and Leadership in the Backcourt for the last three seasons should be questioned Big Time on this Knick Team by getting Nate Robinson and Mardy Collins another young Guard that they could work and create with (as a threesome rotation). Francis was not the only so-call Star Guard that needed to be sent packing...
