    Yeah, itís like D-Rose said... with Mills selling the all black brain trust, trying to foster an artificial sense of camaraderie, but not remaining loyal and being true to his own word... swapping Mudiay for Payton was the beginning of the end for Fizdale.

    The biggest indictment on Fizís development skills is that they gave up on Mudiay so quickly when he was the initial pet project. They didnít jettison Mudiay for
    Frank... So it was Perryís ego to bring in a reclamation, his own failed lottery pick, and make the lateral move. Wasted a year investment and undermined the HC in front of his players.

    First Rose, then Mudiay... o where is Langston?

    Anyway... DSJ played 27 minutes and posted a 6:2 assist to turnover ratio. He hit 2 baskets at a critical point to stabilize game in the fourth. Defensive effort was there, he played within himself. Hopefully he can build on this.

    Itís a start...

    ď Speaking of defense, this is the sixth time in the last eight games the Knicks have held their opponent to 100 or fewer points. Even with some blips on the radar, New York has the fourth ranked defense in the NBA over that stretch. Regardless of who remains on the roster after Thursday's deadline, that has to be considered a good sign.Ē

    The Knicks clueless FO never should've made the trade for Mudiay on the Feb. trading deadline.
    The Denver Nuggets were a 40 win season team having Mudiay as a 17 min backup PG.
    The Knicks did not need a 17 min backup PG Mudiay .. the Knicks had Jarrett Jack and rookie Frank to run the point.
    Trading for Mudiay were a stupid decision-making that ended in having a 17 win season.

    I think it was Broadway that said the Knicks base hated Mudiay.
    Now I don't quite understand way because to me Mudiay ran the PG very well. Consider this that FO let Micheal Beasley go with nobody to get him a basket if need. Plus a mentor Knox. FO want this team to lose so it lost game and everybody blames Mudiay. Look at what he did with any help. Let also remember that Mudiay was working on getting himself on the right track. Mudiay avg more than 17 minutes for the Knicks so he service his purpose.

    If you got a problem the above mention of Jarrett Jack should chap your butt. A journeyman to mentor Frank when you could have kept D. Rose a former MVP PG. Now if you want to talk about stupid decision they don't get any worst than not signing both Rose and Beasley. BTW, both wanted to stay at the Knicks just Kanter and Kornet and Trey Burks.

    Probably the right business decision not to re-sign DRose, remember he injured his knee the last month he was with the Knicks.

    You never want to sign players with the history of injuries DRose had esp coming off one. The time to sign him was in FA when he left MN.

    The time to resign Rose was the year he left NY for Cleveland and signed a vet-miminium. I agree you never sign players with a history of injuries.
