    I think they are concerned about locker room chemistry, bc Rose knows this team is overachieving at this point?

    “ The Knicks have expressed interest in young shot-blocker Norvel Pelle. John Henson, Dwayne Dedmon, Thon Maker, Jordan Bell and DeMarcus Cousins are currently free agents.

    Shot-blocker Hassan Whiteside could still be bought out by Sacramento and seems to fit Thibodeau’s rim-protecting mold. The Knicks have at the least discussed Cousins despite his baggage.


    Thibodeau prefers for this group a defensive center alongside All-Star power forward Julius Randle, and wasn’t sure Drummond was the right fit after he and brass viewed film over the last few weeks. The Knicks ultimately will have plenty of cap room on Draft Night to potentially facilitate a deal.”

    Spoke to an agent on Lonzo Ball and his future with #Pelicans.

    “Lonzo enjoys playing for the Pelicans but isn’t a fan of New Orleans. However, he really wants to end up with the #Knicks or #Bulls. That has been a dream of his. It’s likely he will try to leave this offseason.”

    I should note that Ball isn’t the only PG we are looking at this Summer.

    10 day contract for John Henson.

    Knicks certainly like their defensive centers.

    There was mention of Kawhi being a FA this off-season but the guy said he didn’t think he would consider leaving Southern Ca. but I read a rumor that he was considering MIA to play with Bam and Butler. Maybe Rose can persuade him to come to NY, I’m really not interested in guys like Conley, Lowry, CP3 and DeRozan that we have to pay 40M per year for.

    The Knicks roster that head coach Thibs inherited needed for Thibs to get Leon Rose to sign FA Rondo in the offseason.
    In the upcoming offseason the Knicks need a strong rebounder to cover for Randle & Obi's weak rebounding from the FA market.
    Next season the Thibs Knicks will need PG-CP3 to call all the shots to become a 2nd round playoff team.
    The CP3--Phoenix Suns 35-15 record been fighting the Utah Jazz for the 1-Seed spot in the West all season.

    Knicks are 30-27... the 6th seed. 1/2 game behind BOS, ahead of MIA by 1.5...

    15 game Playoff sprint begins now!!!!

    We’re the 6th seed, and between ATL, BOS, MIA, & NYK... the battle begins. 4 teams for 3 spots... the loser forced to go to the last in tourney... the 2 winners, well, they avoid Nets, PHI, MIL in round 1....

    We’re on a 5 game winning streak...

    We go home for the rest of April... 6 consecutive home games... followed by a 6-game road trip... then return home for 3 games.

    15 Games

    Boston lost tonight so now we’re tied with them for the 5th seed and we’re both a half game back of Atlanta for the 4th seed.

    Crazy, right! With 14 games remaining, who would’ve thought huh? This close to a top 4 seed! Last game of season at MSG vs BOS.

    But, starts with next 2 (CHA/ATL), a back to back set. But, if we win both... Knicks will be at min. tied for the 4th seed with 12 games left.

    "We have a big responsibility to ourselves," Nerlens Noel said Tuesday morning. "We have a mentality there is no seventh, eighth seed for us. It’s strictly focused on the four, five, six and making sure we have a solid spot. We worked really hard this season.
    "It would be tough to put in that much work in and have a play-in thing. We have to take advantage of the position we’re in now and finish strong through this last stretch of the season so we’re in position to have one of those locked-in spots."
    "Obviously when you’re trying to make the playoffs you’d love to stay out of that seven to 10 range and stay out of the play-in," Julius Randle said. "But whatever happens happens. Like I’ve said all year long, we’re just going to make sure that we’re doing everything we can to give ourselves the best chance to win. If we do that I feel like we’ll be in a good spot by the end of the year when everything ends."

    Reading this in the NY Post, made me think how much better we would be tho season with Chris Paul and Mikal Bridges, instead of Payton and Knox:

    “The Suns have kept up that momentum. Another key is Mikal Bridges, whom the Knicks passed on for out-of-the-rotation Kevin Knox in the 2018 draft. Bridges has made another step as a preeminent 3-and-D wing (13.1 points, 52.6 percent shooting, 40.5 from 3).”

    ATL just beat Heat & Bucks, without Trae Young. They play DET, then PHI twice...

    Knicks and Hawks tied for 4th, both 34-27 records. MIA & BOS both 2 games back (32-29)....

    There is a possible scenario, where Knicks host Hawks in first round! Battle of 4-5 seeds.

    11 games remain....

    Imagine finishing 4th, beating the Hawks (no easy task, even with Young’s injury and we are 3-0 vs them). Then getting Nets in second round, playing with house money...
