On paper this is a last place team in the division but if that’s all he’s able to achieve I’d be looking for another coach next season, growth among our young players is going to be the key for a surprising season for the Knicks, which is the reason Fizdale was hired in the first place.
    During Fizdale one yr honeymoon, Fizdale's Iso-system separated every guard in the back-court lineup into performing as a single iso shoot-first guard. There were NO future promise showed in any of the Knicks guards performance to play team-ball last year, under Fiz honeymoon.
    My biggest question I have for head coach Fiz-Fiz are .... In the 2019-20 season will the Knicks work hard at Ball-Movement? and Defense for 82 games?
    As for Mills/Perry expectation of Fiz-Fiz having a 17 win season, and not getting fired are some questionable expectation.
    The Knicks last three head-coaches experience before Knicks hired them are .. Fisher 0 yr, Horn 2 yr, Fiz 2 yr .. when u total up all 3 of the Knicks previous head-coaches .. You have to believe a lot of unemployed NBA head-coaches has been turning down the Knicks head-coaching job.

    The French play Team USA tomorrow Wed. 7AM ESPN Plus. Probably the game Perry is most interested in to see if Nits does well playing against NBA competition. He has shown me one thing during FIBA is he's not a starting PG in the NBA, maybe a secondary PG like RJ could be but definitely not a starting PG. Don't expect him to be starting at PG over DSJ or Payton on opening day.

    When it comes down to who's a better Starter and Finisher between Frank and DSJr for a winning team ???
    Frank 100% !!!

    You still dont have an idea or clue why the Mavs traded DSJr

    The French Prince looked good today against a team of NBA players, solid D making Kemba look like a scrub, that height advantage vs. Kemba was huge. Made a couple of huge 3s late in the game to seal the first win against a US team in 58 games. I’d say off of this performance, he’s got the Knicks attention for a spot in the rotation albeit maybe not as a starter.

    Nits should have a leg up going into training camp against DSJ and Payton having competed in FIBA, let’s see if he can take advantage of it and beat out one of them for the spot as the starting or backup PG.

    There are 3 fan camps about Ntilikina. Those who think he is good, those who think he is just plain bad, and then the rest of us, including myself, who think he is a bad offensive player and a good defensive player.

    It doesn’t shock me at all that Ntilikina could effectively defend any guard or wing in this league. He just needs to be an average offensive player who can knock down open 3s and he is good to go as an NBA wing or 2 guard in the right lineup.

    I watched the end and Knits played actually decent. Stiffel tower controlled the paint and Fournier was all over the place. US looked stunned, but I was happy for Knits.

    Frank played a crucial role for Frances upset over team USA!
    I think this game will be a real confidence booster for Frank.
    Hopefully an eye opener for the Knicks front-office and all the Haters of Phil's draft selection.

    We may have to eat crow with the kid Chief. He’s also bigger and stronger, which may help him avoid those injuries he’s had since he’s joined the Knicks.

    On Sunday, I watch the Giants vs Cowboy game .. the Giants had no running game, and no Defensive game. The Dallas Cowboys beat the Giants 35-17. The Giants offensive game looked very critical on the field.

    The NY Giants first game of the season looked so much like our full season Knicks last year, having no team-ball on offense, and no team plan on Defense. A poor Giant/Knick Program to stunt the NFL/NBA growth of the young-core players.

    The difference between Frank Nitty Ntilikina on the France Fiba team, and Frank with the Knicks .. the french team coach believe in Frank plus show Frank plenty love, by having a young raw Frank playing at his true position to advance his growth, plus playing in a team-ball system having plenty ball-movement, player-movement, spacing, plus having unselfish smart teammates that give each other confidence on both sides of the court.

    The last time the Knicks perform a winning B.ball team like France are doing in the Fiba tournament .. Pat Riley was the Knicks head-coach.
    Recall the reason why Pat Riley quit the Knicks after going to the FINALS .. Dolan's PUPPET management decision-making !!!

    Another nice game from Nits in France’s loss to Argentina. Best player on the French team today, leading the scoring with 16 pts. One of the ESPN announcers hyped him and said the Knicks have a special player. ��������

    I still wonder if Fizdale is going to play him. Should at least give him a chance, but whose minutes does he get? He’a going to be playing behind our current regime’s guys: DSJ, Payton, Dotson, Trier, etc.

    Maybe now is the time to trade him and try to get a late 1st rounder out of somebody who watched the tourney.

    Someone is going to be traded from a crowded backcourt, though it might not be Frank. I just hope Fizdale comes out of training camp with a set rotation, we haven’t had a set rotation since Woodie was the coach.

    I wouldn't be surprise at the end of the Knicks up coming season, Frank may turn out to be the best winning guard on the Knicks roster.

    The Knicks hasn't had a set rotation since HOF PG Jason Kidd were on the roster calling 90% of the shots.
    In the 2019 off-season the Knicks head-coach and the Knicks front office did not put out any effort to get the Knicks a NBA veteran PG from the trade market (Conley) or the FA market (Beverley or DLO) for the upcoming 2019-20 season. Were the N.O. Pelicans gonna resign Payton & Randle after trading AD to Lakers? plus selecting Zion with the 1st pick of the draft? I doubt it !!!

    How does the Knicks PG grade in the power-rankings ???

    Fizdale said that DSJ will play in the final 2 preseason games and that this will heavily factor into who will start at PG.

    Fizdale just seems to not run the team right. 2 preseason games are going to affect his decision on who should be our starting PG?
