    Rose is back traveling with the team on this road trip so hopefully his return is imminent.

    If we ever get healthy and Thibs gives them minutes, we could look very different with Rose, Kemba, MRob, Noel, and Cam all in the rotation at the same time. Not going to hold my breath though.

    The Final 7 min of the KC vs Bills Game turned-up the volume in my house .. Great Playoff Game to watch !!!

    The Knicks head coach Thibs coaching the past two months has been for the birds.
    The Knicks future young-core players (Quickley, Obi, Grimes, Deuce, Sims) got no confidence or growth or luv from coach Thibs during this Covid Protocol season.
    Thibs LUV for Randle & Barrett has been as bad as ex-coach Fiz.
    And the Knicks media has been worst than Thibs trying to hype Randle & Barrett into a Malone & Stocton LOL

    The no-passing RJ Barrett having a low b.ball IQ has been the Knicks top scorer the past two month because coach Thibs has increased RJ Barrett's NBA career of 15 shot attempts per game, to take over 20 shot attempts per game the past two months.
    RJ Barrett has scored 30 + points 3 times this season, and 4 times in 3 seasons.

    Give RJ a break he’s learning on the fly we are talking about a 21 year old kid here. And Thibbs has always been hesitant to play younger players that was another knock on him here in the CHI. Great game Sunday night “were u not entertained!!!”. Cardiac Chiefs almost killed me. I don’t go out to watch the Chiefs games anymore because Bears fans are know it all haters even tho they haven’t won since 85’. Should be another good one Sunday. We lost to the Bengals a couple weeks ago. The zebras gave them the game to point where Borrow gave the refs credit in the post game interview. Should be another classic!!!

    Good Point .. I'm sure Doc Rivers & Embiid does not want to play against their young Ex-player/coach Ben Simmons as an opponent 4 times a season, and the possibility of bumbling heads in the playoffs.
    The Eastern conference are STRONG in the NBA 2021-22 season, having teams like the Bulls, Hornets, and Ex-Lebron Cavs performing at postseason contender level vs all of the East last-season playoff teams. Unless Brooklyn gives up Harden, or Knicks give up Randle.
    Other than those moves, I guess Ben Simmons wont get traded this season, until 2022 Draft Night!
    The Western conference teams has the majority of the top PG, and point-forwards in the league.
    So the majority of West teams are not offering equal trades.
    Plus we can take the Blazers star PG Dam Lillard out of a Ben trade.
    Dam has settle-down well being a franchise-player in Portland the past decade. Dam waiting comfortably for the Blazer FO to get him a back-court partner that have Ben Simmons capabilities on offense/defense.

    Julius Randle is more likely to score fewer than 10 points (7) than more than 30 points (5) this season.He has more digits on his new contract (9) than games with better than 50 FG% (6) this season.


    Randle sitting away from his teammates

    Thanks Metro. As great as I felt after winning two weeks ago is as bad as I felt after blowing that lead to the Bungles. Like game 7 John Starks 3-19 bad. Oof..,,

    Marc Berman in NYP said the same thing, especially now that his mentor Kenny Payne is gone.

    Knicks might lose both Randle and Mitch this summer. Berman suggests they’ll use Randle to get a C… We know Thibbs wants rim protection…. Turner from Indy 1 target….

    Maybe they make run at S-Bey?

    We are so going to get screwed on this.

    Randle is a 20, 10, and 5 guy, which on paper says value, and his contract is big but not a max deal. BUT, he’s coming off an off year after being a 2nd Team All-Pro and now he’s disgruntled publicly?

    A good front office, maybe you can salvage this. But, our lame duck front office, with other teams knowing that Randle wants out, this is going to be a mess.

    Everyone needs to play nice for another half season or so and then maybe this won’t be a disaster to move him.

    And don’t even get me started when we lose MRob for nothing this off-season.

    I’m going to grab Sam Presti in a sack and bring him to MSG myself to take over our front office.

    I’m already preparing that we lose Mitch for nada…. I’m just hoping they find a deal if he goes… Maybe sign and trade for Brunson.

    And chance we flip Randle for Jax in MEM?

    I guess it has to be asked, was that rumor about Randle asking out a complete lie? Randle says he wants to stay in New York long-term and no source has emerged to support this rumor that he asked out.

    MitchRob's season performance scream, "Resign, I'm a KEEPER!".

    Randle's season performance yelled, "I'm not a keeper, trade me for a real NBA starter PG!".

    Head coach Thibs season performance kept whispering, "I'm not a future head coach, let me retire!".
