    Enough of Jack please. Build for future. We may have a great defensive PG and another great offensive PG. Start Knits and build him up and then let Burke and Beasley go to work with the second unit.

    If we come out of this season with a top ten pick and have found a gem in Burke, then hit with one of our second rounders.... this would be a very fruitful year.
    I don't understand why our starting 5 players dont coexist well enough on offense/defense to pull out 50% of their crunchtime wins .. i dont understand why our top 5 bench players "Burke Knits Mcderm Beasley n Quinn are not in the same lineup every game to start the 2nd quarter n start the 4th quarter to have a coexisting bench lineup in the rotation.
    If we keep mixing different lineups each game n never let our players get familiar with each other by being in the same lineup then at the end of the season it will be hard to mention what players are KEEPERS for next season.

    Burke! If you donít start him then make him and Beasley your main guys off the bench. Frank lost his job by throwing the ball away too many times and not creating for other players in the offense. Itís Burke time!

    Cousins is getting all his money for that very reason. This injury won't affect the type of game he plays, he might lose a little defensively that's it.

    Matthews/Parsons/Kobe/Melo/Wade/Whiteside/Embiid/Griffin/Lowry/Reggie Jackson...All of these guys off the top of my head got max money/near max money off of an injury riddled, injury nagging, washed up declining season, a down season. Cousins is getting his money if they believe in his recovery

    Pretty sure Horn is going to run that 3 PG rotation with a smattering of Ron Baker as a combo guard thrown in. Knicks have several days off for practice, maybe Burke can work his way into first PG off the bench come Tues and the PG who finishes the game.

    Burke is pushing even jack out of the way as becoming the starter. He has chemistry with hardaway from their days in Michigan and he can break down the defense and free up buckets for Kp and take some needed pressure off of him.

    Based on what we have seen Burke is the best point guard on the team. Jack is a stabilizing vet but his age, stamina and lack of defense means he should be a backup. Ntilikina blew his chance to start this year. His consistent telegraphed turnovers are hard to stomach with his lack of aggressiveness on offense. He doesnít create as much as he should. He passes the ball off and letís other guys create which is not breaking down a defense or helping make others guys better for that matter.

    Frank needs to sit on the bench and play as an off ball 2 guard when Burke or jack are playing the point. I prefer frank over baker but I can see frank and baker switching it up at the off ball 2 guard spot.

    Burke needs to be the starter or main pg off the bench for rest of the season.

    Knits and Burke have a little Ward-Childs in them....

    I think Frank will develop into a solid offensive PG by the time heís 25... Sure... He seems like heís a grinder, and will work at his craft.

    I think Burke has the ability to be a rotation player. I think 6th man role is ideal, and NYK should be grooming him this season for that role.

    I think NY best served starting Knits and letting him learn from his mistakes. Use Burke as 6th man (and 4th Q closing G when on).
    Fire Perry? Really? Your trippin on that knicks high expectation drug. Gomez is still developing and barely played so keeping him on the cheap is better. Oquinn is arguably just as good as kanter and kanter is the heart and soul of the team right now so they are not easy decisions. Noah needs to go but you canít trade him and waiving him stretches his contract for years on end.

    What can they do that would make you want to not fire Perry? Lol

    KOQ and Kanter can become free agents after the season; thereís a need for them around the NBA. WHG is an attractive young piece.... we are stuck with Noah. Itís Perryís job as GM to turn a surplus into something.... to trade from a strength... and to build for the future.

    Isnít this what GMs are supposed to do? Fire Perry was just hyperbole... to get my point by across.
