    Not sure he gets enough minutes on that DAL team. He's got to show he's a capable 3 pt shooter making at least 38% of his 3s along with reinforcing that DAL D for him to break into the rotation.

    The Dallas Mavs steady ball-movement are the right place for Frank.
    Doncic's meshing leadership plus dynamic passing-skills will help Frank improve his talent in so many areas.

    Well, us Knicks fans has to worry bout how to win having a starter lineup of ISO-Players, who stink on the defensive end of the court:
    PG- Iso-Kemba (career avg 5 ast)
    SG- Iso Barrett (inconsistent)
    SF- Iso Fournier (scorer only)
    PF- Iso Randle (it's a mystery what type of season Randle may have ???)

    PHI withholding Ben Simmons 8.25M salary installment due Friday because of his boycott of training camp. There will be no reconciliation between the parties, I’d expect a major deal before the start of the season, latest rumor was the Clippers could snag him to counter the Lakers off season moves.

    It look like Ben Simmons are gonna accept all the Fines Philly throw at him, until a trade.
    And Philly is gonna start the season without their star quarter back, and wait 5 to 20 games into the regular season hoping to find a better trade bargain for the 76ers team.

    I was hoping the Knicks offseason moves would've kept the Knicks a .500 team in the 2021-22 season.
    But, the moves Leon Rose & Perry made in the offseason has me skeptical of the Knicks season.

    Do not get to excited over Kemba & Fournier becoming a Knicks ....
    Both players been on three NBA teams in 2021, because of their poor Defense.
    The tandem Kemba/Fournier went 4-9 to end the regular season with Boston, plus went 1-4 in the first round of the playoffs. However, Fournier is good at scoring 3's.

    Have to agree, the D got worse losing Payton and Bull and replacing to them with these 2. They do have the ability to score more points, so it will be a trade off of more offense vs poorer D. Fournier better than Bull at creating his own shot plus the outside jumper. Kemba a former AS while Payton a PG who couldn't shoot. Not writing off this combo, most important that Kemba is healthy rather than Payton being a better defender.

    Well, in the Knicks 3rd preseason game vs the Pistons .. The Knicks 2nd half team-defense won the game, and Taj Gibson gets the Crown Team-Ball for his dynamic performance .. Gibson, Simms, JR, and Fournier played some dynamic defense to get the edge over the Pistons to pull a 11-0 run in the 4th quarter.
    Plus Fournier coming away with a big time block during the run made me miss our block-party MitchRob & Noel !!!

    Our first regular season game vs Boston look like Jaylen Brown & Al Horford will be DNP do to being positive of Covid-19

    KP had 11 points and 4 turnovers. Thankfully, we have Randle

    Well the GSW & Chi Bulls are off to a 4-0 start, and the Utah Jazz have a healthy PG Conley to get off to a 3-0 start. These 3 teams dynamic performance may become the TEAM to beat as early as December.
    The Bucks are performing like sleepers again.
    The Miami Heats adding Lowry to their rotation will be a hard team to beat.
    I wish i could say the same for the Toronto Raptors who added Dragic to their rotation.
    The Denver Nuggets are still a handicap team from being a contender until a healthy Murray is back.
    The Lakers & Clippers are no longer dominate in the West.
    The NO Pelicans look like a better team without Zion & Ingram on the court.
    There's two teams we must not sleep on in the 2021-22 season .. Kings & Wizards

    Our 3-1 Knicks signed Kemba & Fournier to become a 3-point shooting team in the 2021-22 season.
    I guess on off nights we are gonna rely on Thibs defense.

    Has anyone been watching the 6-4 Cavs, they have a 3 PG rotation has a dynamic inside/outside performance that's been surprising all their opponents.

    The 6-3 Wizards have Dinwiddle to keep inside scorer Harrell happy, plus outside shooter Beal happy.

    The 7-2 Miami Heats are the better Defensive team in the East, and having Lowry makes the Heats one of the top-3 offensive teams in the East.

    In the West .....
    The 7-1 GS Warriors are back, and Curry are still consistent hitting the 3-Ball shots, plus have a new partner Poole to hold it down till Klay come back.

    The 5-4 Kings have a 3 PG rotation meshing each game ...........

    Chris Duarte is the truth. Should of traded for him when we had a chance. He plays defense and would of easily been an upgrade over Fournier. I don't see how Thibs will fit our boys McBride and Grimes in the line up. I feel like he'll experiment but eventually lean on his vets. Crazy how Sims got more burn tarneshan them.

    2021 Draft Class will be one of the best known.

    Mobley/Barnes are generational players, legit 1a 1b and in their own tier. I like Green alot, but Houston needs a floor general before Green transition to PG. KPJr aint it. Giddey, Sengun, Garuba will be very good over time. I like this draft alot and expect more out of Moody/Kuminga.

    I think Jalen Suggs will be good, but Raptors made the right choice and have a perfect dynamic two way point forward who's a defensive dragon.

    Very solid class… This upcoming class might be better… Paolo Banchero for Duke is 6”10’, 250, sweet touch and fluid like a guard. Kid from Kansas had spectacular debut…. Good times coming post LJ era.

    Entire NYK team and Thibbs at MSG tonight to watch Kentucky vs Duke.

    The Hornets coach Borrego strategy, and his players read the 11-1 GS Warriors scouting-report well enough for a Hornets 106-102 win tonight .. Lamelo Ball, Bridges, and Rozier meshing worked some magic for a team celebration weekend.

    Oh yeah, Curry shot 3-13 from the 3 ball line ,, a close loss !!!

    The Dallas Mavs Ex-Knicks players played a good game going down the stretch on Wednesday without Luka vs the mighty 10-0 streak Phoenix Suns. The Mavs gave it their all down the final minute of the game for a 105-98 loss.
    Tonight, the ex-Knicks Mavs team go at it again without Luka vs the 10-0 streaky Suns ???
