    6 or 7 50-loss season tough to handle... after this season and next... thatís the run we are in the midst of.
    Itís insane. Our front office has nothing to lose by absorbing bad contracts, even if they are bad for up to 3 seasons. We are going to be bad next season too, which means we are at least 3 offseasons away from having any chance at signing big free agents.

    Trade the team friendly deals for bad contracts and get the picks! Our front office canít just sit on their hands when what we should do is this obvious.

    Got some questions -- If you going to sit and wait a year for Dolan to axe the present F.O. then who making the decisions on 1. This year trade deadline? 2. Who is going to handle this year 2020 draft? 3. Who is going to handle this year 2020 F.A.?

    Final Question -- Going to let Mills/Perry do any of the above? They should have been lead out the door with Fiz. So his no-coaching butt doing a sport casting.

    There is a deeper problem with this organization that stems from what drove KP from the Knicks. We don't know what that is yet. We speculate but do we really know? Until that problem is solve then the ones with the players can be address.

    The Dynamic performance the rookie Zion showed scoring 17 pts in the 4th quarter has to have AD wondering if he made the wrong decision to leave NO Pelicans .. Keep AD, draft Zion, and sign FA PG D.Angelo Russel.

    Well it was nice to see 4 minute of Dennis Smith Jr. moving so well on the court.
    However, the spot minute playing-time giving to DSJ make me wonder was that FO move?
    Question why bring DSJ in against a really tough team in a tight situation? We were down by 5 pts, and Payton was playing well and even though Frank could not hit a shot he looked to be penetrating and playing good D.

    Before crowning RJ ROY and dissing Bullock you should take a look at these rookie rankings where RJ doesn't fare so well being bested by every top 10 rookie. RJ was doing well in JAN before turning his ankle but has to continue the trend to rise up in the statistical ranking.

    RJ is 19 and playing for an org that has sucked for 2 decades... A guy like Dunn is 25 and was in 2018 draft, played in G-league last season and is playing for a stable franchise with a legit NBA Star, HC, prez.

    The allure with RJ... is what will he be like when heís Dunnís age, after 5 NBA seasons!

    I hear you but that applies to every rookie in this draft class but the statistical rankings are a better way to measure rookie performance rather than an eye test and these rankings have guys that have been mediocre like Reddish and Culver ahead of RJ. What the stats tell me is that so far RJ didn't deserve the minutes or starting role he got but was given them because the Knicks want to fast track his development. Look I'm an RJ fan but facts are facts.

    And what about Bullocks career numbers??? RJ hasnít even played a full season so the sample size is too small. And that goes for all the Rookies. The key is RJ is trending up, or was before his injury. I know itís the Knicks so we eat our own because the franchise still sucks. Doesnít matter If itís itís Melo, or Eddy Curry or ďCrawfulĒ(Jamal Crawford), or Starbury. I am one of the few posters left to survive the ďStarbury WarsĒ. So now RJ is KO.Comís latest whipping boy because he was the 3rd overall pick heís RJ not MJ. Thatís an unrealistic expectation. So I will hold to hope that RJ turns out. Bullock is my whipping boy because he obviously spends more time getting his wig braided and colored than he does working on his broke jumper on chief.

    Dunn and Porter were in the 2018 draft class.... Just like I called BS when Embiid won ROY.... To me, a 25 year old who played in G-league last season isnít a rookie. Porter spent all last season in DEN, getting professional training an everything... a taste of NBA life.

    Itís what you are using to evaluate and measure.... are all things equal? Who are they sharing court with, what systems? What are they being asked to do

    Did you read what Wade said about position switch? RJ went through camp and on cusp of season, Fiz decided out of blue to start kid at PG.

    And, who exactly has ďearnedĒ playing time for NY? Donít the all kind of leave us wanting something more?

    We are in rebuilding mode, right? So the priority should be building for the future. So, yeah, your high lottery pick is getting special treatment. The goal is to get this kid playing like an All Star down the road... reaching his potential.

    Frank? EP? DSJ? Bullock? Dotson? Who exactly is being slighted, whose play on the court warrants them playing time over RJ? And, we have to remember, we arenít at practice... we donít see who is proving themselves day in and day out with their work in practice.

    I believe now we ride Bullock (to showcase for trade) and Dotson (to see if we are re-signing him).... but if RJ was being benched for a SG hitting 30% of their 3s, or a vet who hasnít played all season... then we would be calling for the HCís head.

    Exactly.... And aside from 2012 with Kidd, since Marbury.... the collection of PGs would be an embarrassment if you had to lace up with them at YMCA.

    RJ wouldnít be the franchise player I would build around not is he the dream third pick in n the draft... still, no denying reality he was one of the better prospects to enter college in some time. We preferred quality over quantity (always smart call in Star-driven NBA league).

    Now we wait 3 years to see what happens.

    Bullock is coming off an injury so it’s not unexpected he might be off to a slow start but his career shooting numbers are better than our best player MM. And if you watched the 1st Qtr of the Lakers game, Breen said Bullock was growing on him and he asked Clyde what did he think of Reggie, Clyde said he’s a good defender, Breen responds “There you go when Clyde says he’s a good defender, he doesn’t say that often about anyone” , says all I need to know about whether Reggie can defend.

    With RJ in his DEC funk, and with Bullock returning from injury.... it made complete sense doing the lineup switch.... but then RJcaught fire and Bullock was slow to get his legs back.

    I prefer starting EP, Bullock, MM, Randle and Taj... so I can have my kids building chemistry together in the second unit, battling the opponentís reserves....

    Frank, Dotson, RJ, Knox and MRob.... almost give them each a quarter and base second half playing time on first half production and matchups.

    I'd prefer to keep Bullock honestly, where do you get that kind of production for what we're paying him.
