The press being denied access to Fiz after draft and F.A. tell me that there was a problem. This could only be one thing and that is that Fiz didn't go only with the draft picks and F.A. signing. He is then expected to win with a bunch of square pegs for round holes. Not resigning Mudiay and Kornet were two player with some chemistry from last season. Not saying that example is correct but along with the other things....Just maybe.
    Wow! C'mon, You didn't notice the BIG difference in the coaching-substitution, each Knick player were given a 5 to 7 minute chance to warm up in their lineup, we had 10 less lineup changes in last night game while playing a full 11-Man rotation.
    We may have had to hold our breath throughout DSJ 12 min of playing-time, but coach Miller did give DSJ a chance, I'm sure Miller took note in the first half when he sent Frank to the bench and the Pacers went on a quick 12-2 run.
    It must be said, when we signed Trier last season we had no need for a player having DSJ skills & talent.
    Last night Knicks assists were up, turnovers down, we were good on the boards, and we defended reasonably well inside and outside.
    Hopefully we build from this !!!
    P.S. Randle's a decent role-player (24 min per) however, Randle's not a star role-player u give 30 min of playing-time every night.
    And yes, Randle does have bout 20% of Keven Durant's offensive performance in his skills, that's it.
    Dont let the Mills/Perry star $$$ contract to Randle get your expectation to believing Randle's a NBA star-player.

People are calling for the Knicks to start tanking the season but I don't think Mills and Perry will to see if they can save their jobs.
    Frank & Dotson should be the Knicks starter tandem guards to improve their chemistry and NBA growth, and veteran Payton & rookie Barrett should be their tandem cleanup backup throughout the remainder of the season.
    The Knicks rotation need a veteran starter center (Enes Kanter or DeAndre Jordan), this way Gibson could give us more minute at the 4 spot, and Randle receive less than 27 min per game.

    Losers switch. It encourages lazy movements. Fight over picks and blanket your man.

    Just edited a previous post that said 'switching is a good thing'. Well I meant 'switching isn't a good thing because the Knicks are a cohesive unit'.

    As for "Losers switch". I question that one because switch mean you are constantly moving around picks. Plus the usual problems of mismatches. For a team with good chemistry, Yes. For a team like the Knicks fights over or around picks seen to be a better fit. You would think that they should be very good when using the zone.

    No, didn't notice a BIG different. Look the same to me. Now if you going to do something changed the lineup.

    Marcus Morris called a players' only meeting on Friday before practice, and hours before David Fizdale was fired.

    "I just called that meeting so we can, as players, talk it out and decide which direction we're trying to go in. At the end of the day, guys stood up, guys said their piece. I think it was a great meeting," he said Saturday.

    Added Julius Randle: "It was what we needed. Nobody's going to turn this around for us except us. We just have to keep doing what we were doing (Saturday) and we're going to win."


    Sources confirmed that part of the meeting was focused on playing unselfishly and holding one another accountable, and RJ Barrett and Randle were among the players addressed by Morris in the meeting, as the New York Daily News reported.

    Multiple players said they need to pass out of double teams more frequently and it was addressed, SNY learned.

    Sources confirmed that all players took the critiques in the meetings constructively.

    Those are the things that cause rift in player relationships. It seen to follow Fiz from last year to this year. Players especially the Vet didn't like it that Trier was ISO in the games. Call out by THJ and Burks and they were soon traded. Now we have RJ(another rookie) and Randle hogging the ball. What about the player from last year that remember all that BS. Of course these of the arms and legs of something great growing and it called 'Cancer'.

    Cancer must be CUT OUT!!!

    An observation that just pop up during the Pacers game. I'll pose them as question... 1. Is RJ fast enough to handle the SG? 2. Does RJ have a quick first step for the SG position? 3. Is RJ explosive going to basket?
    I'll stop there and wait for your answers. Asking these questions of all of you but I already know the answers. Never could put my finger on exactly it was about RJ until a play when he had the ball. It all fell into place.
