    I agree with you, Kiya,
    but i think that up until this year the Knicks din't know how to tank. It's like they failed to do the easiest thing in the books. They always found themselves in the tank race late in the season and they always found a way to avoid the bottom. For some reason, this time they got it right. And they're doing it while finally giving plenty of playtime to the younger guns, something that i have never seen since becoming a Knick fan. I like the way the development process is going and i'm leaning to think that it's the final year we're gonna be so miserable.


    On the other hand, i have this final thought every summer..

    When Frank and Mudiay come back after the All-Star weekend .. it will be hard for the Knicks to TANK and lose consecutive games having Frank & DSJ tandem in the backcourt or Mudiay & Allen tandem in the backcourt.

    Knicks had choice between Fizdale or Mike Budyholtzer (sp?)... MIL has best record in EC and we on pace for worst season in franchise history.

    If Fizís presence doesnít attract the free agents this July... yet another EPIC fail in a long list of them for Mills.

    The one year we finally learn how to tank properly and the lottery rules change. Classic Knicks!

    Im with you Rady, i think this could be the final year of being a laughing stock. Ultimately it might come down to luck and getting that no.1 pick but we also need to play smart in the free agency and not sign just throw a max deal at anyone.
    Will we ever win a championship again? Id like to think so!

    Allen: 25 pts, 3 rb, 6 ast, 1 stl, and 1 turnover in 32 minute

    I have to admit .. we Knick fans has been sleeping on Kadeem Allen play-maker passing-skills plus quick-step slash to the basket for 2 pts in the last 5 games. The more games Allen play the familiar he gets to complimenting his teammates skills. I did get a little tight at Allen when he took that 3 ball shot when we were down by 4 pts at crunch time.
    But Allen is THAT 3rd guard in a 3 guard-offense u want on the court !!!
    Kadeem plays with his head up .. I like what I've seen, a lot from him in the 5 games.
    Apparently in Boston the backcourt was too jammed, and then when he hooked on with us he was a bit of a fatso by NBA standards but has since dropped like 20 pounds, and has been looking more crafty & efficient at the point than any one else we had this season.
    Kadeem Allen & MitchRob has been our best two consistent well performing players since DeAndre Jordan arrived.
    The Knicks better resign the 30 yr old DeAndre Jordan in the off-season!
    Because .. I'm no NBA coach, but I could go 6 or 7 games in a first round playoff series having Kanter and DJ in the front-court rotation.

    Some fans may get upset bout what i have to say bout our 19 yr old rookie Knox .. whom Fizdale been giving 30 plus minute of playing-time the past two months .. In the months of Dec. to Feb., Mario should have been receiving the majority of SF rotation minute being on a one year contract.
    Knox should have been earning his playing time coming off the bench for 20 or more minute per game .. Why?
    Does anyone have worst footwork than Knox on the team?
    The guy travels twice a game always diving to catch the ball out of bounds, his rebounding is suspect too, he shows a total lack of effort out there.

    Allen has outplayed all the guards the 1 + 2 spot, thank god for MitchRob one of the only bright spots out there from the young guys.
    Who has been coaching our winning G.League Westchester team? Great Job !!!

    Anyone feels the Robinson is developing faster than Knox? Knox sometimes looks lost or week in the court.....

    No question in my mind. Given his clear elite prospect talent, I think that if MRob took a conventional path to the draft, he probably could have been a higher draft pick than Knox in the top 10.

    MRob is going to possibly lead the NBA in blocks next season if he gets shifted to starters minutes. Should be a regular double double player too. MRob is shooting 70% from the floor this season because he already knows how to use his height and athleticism to get to the rim and catch the ball in the air where he canít be defended.

    Knox, on the other hand, has a ton of talent, but his game is all over the place on both ends of the court.
