    I always believed we had a legit shot to catch several teams as far back as 3 weeks ago. At the same time I don't want to see guys go down beat up and crippled to get there. Kanter's walk to the bench was a tough watch, he is without question a KNICK...dude wears his heart on his sleeve

    Thats all about to change. THJ is probably out again for an extended period with that stress leg injury. KP is out at least a few games with a knee sprain, maybe out for the season if its an ACL or MCL. Pretty sure Mills and Perry aren't buying at the deadline and huddle with Horn and tell him the goal for the rest of the way is to play the young guys.

    Let’s be honest, this team is going nowhere this season. There’s really no reason to play KP or Timmy anymore, until they are 125% healthy. In fact, I err on the side of caution and “rest/sit” them as much as possible.

    Why?

    1- Lets start WHG and give him KP’s spot. Let him develop and showcase his potential. This way, his trade value goes up so if we want to trade him before the draft.... his value is higher (or he proves to be untouchable).

    2- It’s all about the “L” right now. Shelving 1 or both (KP and THjr) helps the tank cause.

    3- Why risk impacting KP or Timmy’s future? We need them healthy for the entire offseason, so they can improve for 2019 season.

    Look, I, too, don’t want to see losses piling up bc of injuries.... so we should treat these injuries with grave seriousness.

    Just as I said not a good sign they 're doing the MRI tonight. Knicks chief of surgery Lisa Callahan also briefed Mills and Perry and Isola said their body language didn't look good while they were talking.

    An orthopedic surgeon who watched a replay of Porzingis landing awkwardly on his left knee after dunking on Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo would only say "that didn't look good." Within 20 minutes of the injury, Porzingis was already on his way to the hospital which is a sure sign that the Knicks are concerned. Normally, the Knicks wait until the morning to schedule an MRI for one of their players.

    This season is over...the ghost of Fail-Jackson haunts this team: the Noah contract and picking Frank over our American born and bred ballers. I’ll say that again this the NBA not the Premier League. We need guys that grew up here and know our game and how we play it not guys who learn our hoops culture on worldstar hip hop.com The dunk contest is going to be a show of what could and should have been for us Knicks fans😡

    Remember we said about 3 weeks ago we should've got into a practice of sitting #kporzee? Developing and planning for this up coming draft is how our front office should be earning their pay.

    #kporzee has been slowing down for some time now...but No we just had to prove ourselves against the mighty Nets and Suns. Sure did find a way to sit him against GSW though, sucker move I'll never forget for this season. We always operate in dysfunction and never with any forsight. Sounds like we were rushing THJR back from his stress fracture all because we're mathematically clutching the 8th seed

    I hope #kporzee understands this himself as his career goes along in that it's not worth the detriment of long term for short term satisfaction

    SAD!!!! this could have been avoided possibly



    This better be the last time we call ourselves playing for 9-8th seed. I'm tired of this, it never works

    Now he's damaged goods and can't even been included on trades and probably won't be ready to start the season

    I don’t think you sit your young “star” just to protect him. I just think it goes back to the question of can KP with his frail frame survive the rigorous 82 game NBA season???? So far the answer is NO. Tank fans should be doing cartwheels. This team may not win another game this season. Throw Beas into KP’s spot and let the fun begin. Horn won’t be able to bury Beas in the messy rotation anymore. Even Willy might get some clock. What a hot mess this franchise continues to be😓

    Time for Beasley to wake up again. Tank mode in effect, sell the vets. Get as many assists as possible and draft a good pick

    Actually you're proving my point. If an injury prone frail framed player who has a medical condition states he's tired in December and his numbers start declining rapidly as the team sinks in the standings, you rest him. Who the hell are we to suggest "WE DON'T REST PLAYERS" when the Spurs/GSW/Cavs teams that have won a lot in most recent yrs. We don't want guys to rip-shred their knee(s) up in sunrise of their career who have proven to be injury prone in other areas as we're trying to build our way back to competitive excellence. We'd rather they be healthy as possible.

    Jabari Parker tore his ACL and didn't come back until a yr later about the same time last yr

    Yes a HOT MESS we are, actually a hot mess in a DUMPSTER TIRE FIRE

    There goes KP 145M extension this summer or are the Knicks crazy enough to offer him one despite him sustaining a potentially career ending injury.

    Yeah but the Cavs/GSW/Spurs rest players in anticipation of a deep playoff run and championship, not a hopeful 7-8 seed. Like they say there “availability” is an “ability.” A 22 year old pro complaining about being tired playing basketball is like a grasshopper getting tired of jumping. I like KP but damn he’s soft. I’m sick to death of our soft Euro imports with their “sore knees” and soft attitudes. When I was their age I played all day and partied all night. Just once we need to draft a dude so scared to go back to the ghetto that he’s willing to run thru a wall.

    Hornacek and Rambis are CLUELESS on playing 2 BIGs in the lineup for the past 2 seasons in a row .. we have been without a decent frontcourt offense/defense to pull out game wins (There's NO creative formate in KP n Kanter's performance as a tanddem), our road record for 2 seasons speaks lottery ...
    When KP went down with injury .. Hornacek replacement should've been WHG as KP backup.
    There was no reason for Hornacek n Rambis to put bigmen Noah and WHG in the DNP Doghouse throughout the first 55 games.
    We were suppose to have played several tandem BIGs in the rotation throughout our 55 games .. especially our back to back games ..
    KP n Kanter
    KP n Noah
    KP n Quinn
    KP n WHG
    Kanter n WHG
    Noah n WHG
    Quinn n WHG

    Hornacek's 3 guard lineup of Jack Lee n THJ has been getting awful to watch as the season goes on .. Hornacek's starting lineup plus 6th 7th n 8th man off the bench performance has no chemistry on both sides of the court.
