    Foreign Prospect as in someone like Doncic(if we should be so fortunate) he'll probably make you eat your words. We could play it safe and get a wing guy like Bridges(Mich St)...who supposedly we like.

    OKC has plenty talent and they are 2gms from being in the lottery with the Knicks...same as Pistons and Hornets too

    Dude OKC is the 7th seed in the west and thatís a nightmare for a two seed that would draw that team wtf are you talking about??? Doncic will be gone be the time we pick. Our best hope is Micheal Porter JR will fall to us because he is refusing to play for Mizzou even though he has been medically cleared.

    They are 7-9 since All-Star break and 2gms from being a 9th seed and missing it entirely!

    They are not a lock with a charging Jazz team and game Nuggets. I'm referring to their respective TALENT and hella shaky playoff position

    He's not out of reach if we move up THAT'S THE FRICK FRACKEN POINT!!! We need that talent and he's within reach over some meaningless game 73 and 75 win you're boo-hooin over

Better draft position... better the odds.


    Based on trends last 10 games, NYK have a glimmer of hope to catch these 4 teams: CHI, ATL, DAL, and SAC.

    With 17 games remaining, and with NYK having 3-4 wins more than the 8 teams ahead of them in the tank chase... odds arenít great the Knicks budge much from their 9th position.

    However, a 0-17 or 2-15 stretch might propel them past 1/4 aforementioned teams. Is it possible that leap up to 5? Well, all we need is for Bulls, Hawks, Mavs and Kings to go 5-12 or 6-11 while we just pile up the Ls.

    Itís not looking good but weíll see what happens.

    Lottery Race 9 and above

    9 ~ Knicks - Mavs, Bulls, Magic

    8 ~ Bulls - Grizz(2), Hawks, Knicks, Magic, Nets(2)

    7 ~ Kings - Magic, Hawks, Mavs, Suns, Grizz

    6 ~ Magic - Kings, Suns, Nets, Bulls, Hawks, Knicks, Mavs

    5 ~ Mavs - Grizz, Knicks, Nets, Kings, Magic, Suns

    4 ~ Nets - Mavs, Grizz, Magic, Bulls(2)

    3 ~ Hawks - Bulls, Kings, Magic

    2 ~ Suns - Magic, Kings, Mavs

    1 ~ Grizz - Bulls(2), Mavs, Nets, Kings

    11 of our remaining 17gms are against playoff teams, so yeah we're definitely moving up the question is how high

    I wanted to trade KP last year in the 2017 draft .. after 3 seasons in the NBA TIRED-KP are still clueless at both center n PF position however .. Dolan will personally give TIRED-KP a 157M contract (to be a part of the future TANKING Knicks) !!!

    Damian Lillard MVP performance in the back to back games against Lakers then Knicks had me recall his outstanding performance in 2012-13 at the PG position to win the ROY award.

    The Knicks players are getting tired of being coached to lose every game ....
    Tim Hardaway is not a starter nor SF!
    Lance Thomas is not a starter nor PF!
    Knits is a young combo guard not a starter!
    Newly acquired Mudiay should start in the backcourt alongside Jack leading the point.
    A bench frontline of Quinn Hicks n Troy should be working out on offense/defense in the same lineup the remainder of the season.

    Carter, Sexton, Knox, and my personal favorite Mikal Bridges, should all be available at 9...

    I think itíll be like last year, when we had our choice of Monk, Mitchell, DSJ and Knits. We will have a block of prospects worthy of lottery selection... itís just a matter of picking the right guy.

    But, if we can get Sexton or Mikal Bridges at 9 then we found a gem.

    Bridges a KL clone. Almost historically great defender in college... a true 3-$-D type... Incredibly efficient on offense.... I think we have a shot to grab him at 9.

    Bridges and Knits would be ideal fit to surround KP with, if both reach their supposed potential.

    You know you are right. So why even play the last 19 games or whatever it is. How about just forfeit the rest of the season and Fugetaboutit

    Bridges would be a great asset if we hire Mark Jackson as headcoach ....
    Kanter n KP need a Draymond Green (Barkley) type SF in their lineup to win games !!!

    You really donít watch basketball if you think the Jazz or Nuggets have a legit shot of knocking OKC out of the playoffs. Your Melo-hate makes you BLIND😳

    What we learned from this loss against the Portland trail blazers are Damien Lillard are a 4th quarter Star-finisher!

    Lastseason MVP Westbrook 4th quarter super-star performance are to much for the Nuggets or Jazz or Pelicans to handle in a 7 game series having a healthy Adams n Paul !!!
    Melo's weak defensive performance at the stretch 4 position (PF) in a 7 game series are OKC biggest liability vs the West top 3 teams GSW or Rocks or Blazers.
    Melo facts not Melo hate !!!

    Speaking of Melo congrats to him for passing the logo Jerry West for 20th place on the NBA all time scoring list. He's had a great career and will be a first ballot hall of famer without question.
