    Not even so much Knits but really any player for the matter. Lakers unfortunately probably won't get a chance to atone for passing on Fox(whom Magic wanted). Truth be told I'm not really enthused by Knox(wasn't when we drafted him). He hasn't been bad but there are some concerns with his game. He and Trier need to expand their game and not be so 1-dimensional.

    Yep agreed wholeheartedly, probably tired(not an excuse though). I don't think he's in peak condition and concentration levels drop when athletes aren't. He needs to fix this immediately. He has a short window to draw respect from refs as a potential budding star and capitalizing off of trips to the stripe is a must...otherwise this won't be the case long term. Get the TOs down too

    11-19 from FT line is both great and disgusting.
    True at the same time #kporzee isn't going to give us 7ast/gm either

    Wow! u can't see it? Let me help u .. Remember Marbury high scoring performance in a Nets uniform giving the Nets all the lottery-balls to get the first pick in the draft .. Kenyon Martin!
    Do you recall every team the high scoring double-double Starbury left .. the team got better once Marbury was gone (except Knicks) !!!

    In just a couple of games as a Knick .. I already see why owner Cuban and head coach Rick Carlisle put DSJ on the trade-table in December, and traded him in January. The Mavs did not like the way DSJ controlled the ball on offense (24 win season), when the rookie Doncic kept doing a 100% better job at getting teammates more involve on offense. The more coach Carlisle put the ball in rookie Doncic hands to run the offense the closer the Mavs came to being a .500 playing team.

    We’re far and away the worst roster in the NBA. You really want to crap on one of the very few players on this team that actually has some talent to build upon?

    DSJ needs the ball to be effective right now. If we sign Kyrie, DSJ is relegated to Lou Williams 6th man role...

    Knox is super duper inefficient.

    Did the Knicks have a 41-22 first quarter?
    Did the Knicks bench-players stop the Pistons from giving us an embarrass blow-out?
    How well did Knox & DSJ compliment each other in their 35 minute outing tonite?
    Did the Knicks ever take the lead in this game?
    Which Knicks loss to the Pistons were really bad? The 105-92 loss? Or the 120-103 loss?

    Dude, I’m grasping at straws here to still find some way to enjoy watching this team. Let me have some delusion here until hopefully we either hit big in the draft and/or hit big in free agency this offseason.

    Yeah, KP wouldn’t have more than 1.6 assists... and, let’s be honest, DSJ night even be a better all around rebounder.

    Wouldn’t it repudiate Jax’s tenure if Knicks ended up trading the 1 asset PJ felt good about providing the team with for the very athletic AAU jump out the gym player he derisively said he was trying to avoid. Swap KP for DSJ, so it would mock Phil for eternity.

    Just would be so sweet for DSJ to carry NY like a franchise player, and KNicks win without KP, which means Jax era produces nothing of consequence. Nothing but laziness, hubris, and acrimonious woe!

    That would be the karma coming ‘round for its revenge.

    What are u saying, the Knicks has an average NBA roster (no difference from the Nets) however, the Knicks team are under the rule of an inexperience head-coach with a TANKING agenda.
    First the coach gave our pass-first PG-Frank 20 minute of playing-time as a starter in several different lineups.
    Then 5 games later he gave a shoot-first PG Mudiay 30 minute of playing time as the starter in practically the same lineup.
    After the Knick coach average a 10-40 record the Knicks head-coach had to sit Mudiay for a while, and now the coach has a 35 minute high scoring Ball-Hogger or shoot-first PG DSJr. that's clueless on how to take his teammates on a scoring-run to take the lead in a game SMH
    I'm seriously wondering in all DSJ talent does he know how to grab a lead as a play-maker and hold the lead for a quarter of the game ???

    They could be worse w/o DJ and DSJ in the lineup. Not sure Fiz knows what he's doing saying previously its all about developing the kids in this lost season and now playing the vet DJ over Kornet, is Fizdale tanking or not tanking? He had an agenda with Kanter for sure because Kanter couldn't get off the bench despite putting up double doubles that DJ does. I would think you have to play DSJ because he's going to be here and he's one of those young guys but playing DJ makes no sense if you're tanking.

    First draft since the league changed the rules and wouldn't you know it just when the Knicks have a great chance to finish with the worst record it doesn't mean crap because the worst 5 teams all have about the same chance of getting that top pick (over 10%). Only good thing about the draft is you don't have to wait until the off season to see if you can get Zion. I see no one passing on him even if a team had desperate need for a PG to pick Ja ahead of him

    the 62 mets were terrible... the laughing stock of baseball.. but while inept , the mgr/organization was trying to win, n the team was watchable as they were entertaining ... as the knicks losses mount, they r becoming unwatchable ... and i wonder when the upcoming FA's look at the 'team' (now thats a funny), what do they see- a roster with maybe 1-2-3 serviceable players, a lottery pick...maybe zion... BIG deal... i would imagine that the FA's number one priority is getting $$$$- after that these guys want to .. W I N ... so what advantage do we have... we can't pay more $$$ then another team... we probably have the $hittest roster of any team (with or without zion) , playing in MSG is a bit of advantage, but that's negated by the ownership (dolan)... so i look into my Crystal ball, and see the 1930's in the mid-west.... the dust bowl....
