    MRob played his ass off. Rest of the team not so much. On pace to go 14 - 68.

    You could see MRob was a natural shot blocker in Summer League getting out to those perimeter shooters and blocking their shots. Probably the hardest thing to do is blocking a jump shot with the new rule on allowing space for a shooter to land but he does it with ease. He's averaging about 10rbs as well per 36. He doesn't shoot well at all but his length and nature athletic ability puts him ahead of KK on impacting a game in his rookie year.

    Kadeem had a nice game on both ends. Fiz is crazy if he doesn't play him when Mudiay and Nits come back, that's 3 straight games he's played well.

    I saw a stat that says he leads NBA in perimeter blocked shots. Maybe he’ll be the defensive equivalent of the Unicorn.

    If we get Murant or we find a PG who likes to pass... he should average 12-15 PPG just on alley oops and out backs.

    Those are special blocks

    Then offensive rebound and slam on Embiid. 14/13 with 4 blocks

    I see why he was as highly rated in HS as Ayton.
    Wow! Fizdale-18
    I miss the Game .. but I like to hear good stuff bout MitchRob & Kadeem Allen.
    I'm listening to the Post Game, and watching the highlights .. I would like to see a development of a bench unit of ..
    Kadeem, Trier, Knox, Vonleh, and MitchRob to start the 2nd qtr. and start the 4th qtr. after the All-Star break.
    The bench-players mention above need to play in the same lineup game after game throughout the remainder of the season.

    Say it right .. Play Kadeem Allen over Mudiay & DSJr. .. Frank is our Knicks future 2-Way point-forward .. we only have to work on Frank creative scoring & hops

    First .. we have to resign D.Andre Jordan to a 2 or more year contract, especially if we are lucky to get Zion in the June draft.
    D.Andre Jordan could be the veteran-player all our young-core Bigs look up to.

    Knicks are in a precarious position... If they sign Kyrie then there isn’t room for both Mudiay and DSJ... if they don’t get the Zion or RJ, then what do you do?

    If you have Kyrie, do you draft Murant?

    In other words, let’s look at the PG situation... which... ironically... is a position the franchise has been devoid of since M-Jax and Rod-Strix were drafted back-2-back years...

    NYC is home to the playground PG... it’s in the city’s blood. What we’ve been forced to endure the last 25 years is a disgrace. The one season we had a decent PG, albeit an aged Kidd, the Knicks won 50 games and advanced to the second round (beating BOS).

    After a run of Walt, Sparrow, Jax, Strickland, Harper, Cheeks, Rivers, Anthony... the QB of MSG, during the era of the PG in the NBA... the maestro of Knickerbockers turned into the likes of the pollsters as underwhelming as Ward, Grant, Childs, Scott Brooks, Brooks Thompson, Brunson, old Mark Jax, Eric Strickland, Eisley, Frank Williams, Moochie Norris, Starbury, Crawford, N8, Duhon, Stevie Francis, Roberson, Douglas, Sergio Rodriguez, Felton, Billups, Anthony Carter, Bibbons, The Baron Davis, LINsanity, Kidd, Prigioni, Beno Udrih, Turrey’ Murry, Calderon, Larkin, Galloway, Sved, Grant, Rose, Jennings, Baker, Nitklina, Sessions, Jack, Burke, Mudiay, DSJ. Oh, and Milos Vujanic wouldn’t leave his war-torn country to come play for the team after they drafted the European.


    Now, here we are with as many as these options to be running the PG spot next year:

    DSJ
    Mudiay
    Knits
    K-Allen

    Murant

    Kyrie
    Kemba
    Rozier
    Bledsoe

    Conley
    Lowry


    The answer could be on our roster, it might arrive in the draft or via free agency, or even perhaps come in the form of a surprise trade.

    So, how do you handle the rest of the season?

    I would go with an equal distribution rest of the way... do your best to evaluate what we have in-house... get this right. judge impartially. Then, assess your appraised asset against what is available on the market, compare the values... shoot for your number one target.

    Find the answer, finally already!!!!

    I believe he wasn't traded because we didn't get the value we wanted to flip for AD package this summer, if those talks take place again he will be thrown in again. I believe he was offered up to the Pelicans/Mavs/Magic but couldn't meet interest on both sides.

    Robinson's back-to-back bloxks on Embiid were also D-licious!

    MitchRob Block Party .. u got to Luv-it !!!

    Looking at the DSJ fast-break after the MitchRob block in the vid .. i see a slow running Kornet, then Dotson, and in last place Knox, none even tried to run in front of DSJ on the fast break SMH
