    Nyk Logo Dennis Smith Jr.

    Why did the Mavs make the trade for KP when the Mavs team were playing close to .500 ball through first half of the season?
    The KP trade will put the Mavs in the 2019 draft lottery to hope for their protected 1-5 pick.
    Mavs owner Cuban and head coach Carlisle lied about wanting DSJr. The Mavs organization really wanted Frank in the 2017 draft for factual reason of adding defense-depth in the guard rotation for all the high-scoring PG/SG in the western conference that DSJr 2nd season in the West could not match-up against.
    DSJr.'s 2nd season performance and work ethic was not up to par for coach Carlisle, nor was in up to par against the Mavs western conference opponents guards.
    For 30 minute playing time DSJr. average to get to the foul line once per game being the ball handler, plus the 4 to 5 assist per game never made up for the 2 to 3 turnovers in the 2nd half of each game.
    Plus DSJr. poor defense performance vs Harden/CP3/Curry/Klay/Lilliard/McCollum/Westbrook/Paull/and the other young top guards in the West had to be nerve racking for coach Carlisle.

    How well will DSJr. do in New York, under coach Fizdale?
    Well, coach Fizdale 50 games (10-40 TANK) coaching the Knicks has not improve or develop any player or young-core player on the Knicks roster yet.
    DSJr. may feel at home under Fizdale's half-court isolation system without any demands on the defensive-end.
    Fizdale has refuse to build a team-ball system by not selecting two guards as a backcourt tandem to lead the (starter/finisher) lineup, nor did Fizdale select a center and PF as the main frontcourt tandem in the starter/finisher lineup throughout the 52 game rotation .. Fizdale change-change lineup and change-change rotation never letting the players get familiar in a certain lineup or rotation.

    I thought the Knicks had found their future small-quick play-maker in the un-drafted Alonzo Trier.
    I'm still waiting to see the 2nd season Frank & Dotson tandem-up to run the point in a lineup for the Knicks.

    Some Knick fans are happy n boasting bout DSJ scoring 25 points last night vs the Pistons.
    Some fans started putting DSJ high scoring performance above Frank and Mudiay all-around performance.
    What these fans were not paying attention to were the Knicks never took the lead in the game where DSJ lead the Point for 40 minute of his playing time, plus took 25 shots to score 25 points, and only went to the foul line once (ex-Knick Derek Rose type of performance, or Iso-Melo performance when the refs dont give him the call). I guess this type of game losing performance are alright for Fizdale TANKING chemistry.
    Having DSJ run the point for 40 minute the Knick team shot 40% from the FG, plus the Knick as a team only went to the foul line 7 times.
    I looked at DSJ stats in his 2 season in the league he has average one trip to the foul line per 30 minutes.
    As a shoot-first PG taking 10 + shots per game DSJ has to learn to get to the foul line more than 1 time per game.
    I'm sure DSJ performance at the PG for 30 minute per game had to pester the Mavs coach Rick Carlisle a lot.

    Frank is a pass-first PG that has average 5 FGA shots per 20 minute .. we drafted Frank for his high IQ on the defensive-end of the court, and his passing-skills. At the time we drafted Frank the Knicks had three Ball-Hogs on the roster that never passed the ball (Iso-Melo, D.Rose, and Tired-KP).

    I'm still in doubt why the Knicks front-office of Mills/Perry traded for Mudiay, when practically all the western conference teams guards took advantage of Mudiay's low b.ball IQ for 3 seasons.

    Mudiay is ass vomit.

    DSJ is a lot more talented than I thought, and his pace and decision making are a real surprise.

    I have to give the Knicks win over the Hawks .. Game-Ball win to DSJ first win as a Knick .. his 32 min performance (19 pts, 2 rb, 7 ast, 1 stl, and 1 turnover off of 7-10 shooting) stayed in winning-mode from tip-off till buzzer.
    DSJ stayed two steps ahead of the Hawks rookie star Trae Young with a glove at certain times CTFU
    Great all-round game from DSJ .. under Fizdale-18 Tanking-system !!!

    He might win, look at at the guys in it. That dunk contest gets weaker every year.

    • John Collins, Atlanta Hawks (+225)
    • Miles Bridges, Charlotte Hornets (+225)
    • Hamidou Diallo, Oklahoma City Thunder (+350)

    Some nice dunks by our boy DSJ. Diallou with the Superman uni under his OKC jersey and hanging on the rim with his elbow through it was the best dunk of the night though.
