    On a happy note... Zion a beast tonight. 30-10-5. 13-16 shooting (3-4 from downtown). Keep your eye on the prize.

    Zion and KP. Mudiay and Vonleh. Trier and MRob. Knits and Dotson. Kornet.

Vonleh is such an oaf out there heís hard to watch. Dude is an offensive foul waiting to happen. He would be a nice 8th-9th man off the bench but an NBA starter??? I give you guys all the credit in the world for watching 82 games worth of Knicks tank. I would poke my own eyes out

    3-4 from distance is more impressive than that 360 dunk. Took LeBron years before he became a good 3 pt shooter.

    For the season he's a 28% 3 pt shooter and 70% FT shooter so shooting is still an area he needs to develop.

    Vonleh really looked good beginning of the season but has come back to earth since. Said when we acquired him that don't expect much since he was in his 4th year but he's played better than I expected, one of the guys I expect Perry to try to keep I don't think Perry is going to if someone offers him a 3 yr 30M deal. Theres still a role for the traditional big man, Capela can't shoot the 3 on a 3 pt shooting team but can't argue his value to the Rox. One thing that separates Capela from other bigs is his ability to guard the perimeter and switch, if Kanter had that we would be talking about resigning him and not letting him go in FA. I personally would like to bring him back but not at 18M.

    The Knicks will need a Big-Man assistant coach to preach DEFENSE to their front-court players next season ....
    The Knicks (Mills/Perry) need to higher$$$ one of the ex-NBA-players willing to be an assistant-coach next to puppet-Fizdale (the names of Rasheed Wallace or Chris Bosh are out there) to tighten up Knick players performance inside the paint on offense/defense, players like Vonleh's offensive tactics do need work .. and rookie MitchRob low confidence need some assistance from an ex-Pro-Baller .. plus rookie Knox defensive IQ will need to improve each season of his rookie contract .. and Kornet will need a Pro-Baller to work on 2 or 3 inside scoring moves .. and Tired-KP will need a Pro-Baller to show him how to get a double-double in 30 min playing time by shooting above 50% FGA .. plus show Kanter how to be a Big Body in the paint on the defensive end of the court the final 12 minute in a game.

    The Knicks backcourt guards has looked awful on the court all season performing like individual-guards (averaging 19 assist per game) .. The change of lineups and rotation every other game or every week has a lot to do with the Knick players never getting close to performing on the same-page as teammates.
    Fizdale type of system and coaching technique has made it hard for players to perform on the same-page on the court .. In the Knicks 40 games i have not witness two Knick players that compliment each other performance in a lineup SMH !!!

    Fizdale is full if crap for sure, came to NY with 3 objectives. Conditioning, ball movement and defense, where are we 19apg dead last in the league, 115 ppg allowed 27th in the league. You have to laugh we he says I'm going to coach the hell out of the guys.

    Consider this pattern. Coaches have success elsewhere. Knicks hire them for tons of momey. They suck. Knicks fire them. They are successful somewhere else. It's not the coaches. Since the front office has changed multiple times as well, there is only one thing that has not changed: Jimmy.

    I have seen several college coaches with less talented players coach a better offensive strategy, and even a much better Zone defense than Fizdale put on the court in 40 games. I'm sorry if u happen to be a Fizdale fan, but Hornacek coaching had a better team philosophy than Fizdale's foolishness. Having 6 guards on the roster, and not being able to get two of the guards to perform on the same-page in a lineup are Clueless coaching.
    The number one reason why I wanted the Knicks to hire head coach Mark Jackson to get the Knicks guards on the same-page with the big-men on offense/defense.

    The Knicks has hired some winning coaches but the Knicks front-office and Jimmy calls all the shots ..
    Do you really think Dantoni wanted to give ISO-Melo 40 minute of playing time?
    Do u really think Phil Jackson wanted to resign ISO-Melo?
    Both Dantoni and Phil actually quit on the Knicks before even getting started bc of the front-office demands.

    Fizdale's coaching theory of changing the starter lineup for several inexperience young players has been a good philosophy for TANKING a season .. not for developing young-core players.
    Fizdale nor Hornacek were permitted to take Timmy Hardaway Jr. out of the starter lineup (President Mills signing) .. when practically every Knick fan knows Timmy's ball-hogging poor defense and no passing skills performance are best as a 6th to 8th man in the rotation.

    Mark your calendars. Boogie returns to NBA bball on JAN 18. Kerr says he's starting. Can't wait to see how he fits but, I think he's just what they need to get them back on track.

    I'm not interested in multi Champions/All-NBAers/All-Stars/Superstars needing help from a player who's almost every bit their caliber/the former. Miss me with this lame joke of a comeback. This is not what competition was built on

    Outside of Boogie's ability to play again from injury(which we all should hope the best in physical recovery) there's really nothing to be excited about unless you're a Boogie/Warriors fan
