    Alec Burks played 2278 minutes this season to IQ’s 1761, on average, that’s 6 more mpg over the course of the season. And, mind you, more than half those minuets came as they attempted to convert wing AB into a PG

    And our idiot GM speaking nonsense about development and 9 guys under 24 and 13 picks next 3 drafts (only 4 first rounders tho).

    First of all, Mitch is gone. McBride and Cam don’t play. So now we are down to 6, no?

    Like Obi, Malik Monk led the Lakers B-team in scoring in Sunday’s overtime victory over the Nuggets, netting a career-high 41 points on 14-of-25 shooting (6-of-6 FTs) along with four boards, one assist, seven 3-pointers and three turnovers in 35 minutes.

    NYK Biggest mistake would Be to depend on what Obi and IQ did last 5-10 games. Bring in competition and improve this roster.

    Unless we are in full fledged rebuild, IQ and Obi are reserve players.

    Just took a look at the Knicks cap situation going forward.

    Next year, between Randle, Fournier, Rose, Noel, and Walker, the Knicks have roughly $77 million (out of the $120 million cap) tied up in players who either wildly underperformed or were injured most of this season.

    Cap is around 120M and yet Knicks at about 170M…. They’re 50 mil OVER the cap, which means MLE and trades only option to make moves. So, we won’t see much roster change other than a trade of our crap for your crap, and Mitch will be gone.

    Brunson at PG does nothing for me.

    Randle and Evan for Westbrook and Mitch a sign and trade for Grant is my guess. Maybe find a way to get Brunson (probably for IQ). This is probably only option for Leon Rose.

    I’ll say this… and I probably lean more towards Thibbs supporter than being anti-Thibbs.

    But after listening to his post game presser… He sounded like a hypocritical, arrogant, full of **** bag of wind.

    Not sure Leon can retain him, but he probably will. But I don’t want this being my leader…. Still, nothing changes until that slovenly agent gets fired. Leon Rose might be worst GM in NBA.he’s an agent! He is not a GM. Do I go see a real estate agent when I have a cavity or do I make an appointment with a dentist?

    I just peeped a thread on Twitter of Sixers fans morbid fear of Doc Rivers coaching style and would you know their concerns are echos from Knicks fans…guess which two coaches have history together?

    Sixers have the Raptors in the playoffs and I guarantee you Nick Nurse is going to make Doc Rivers sweat more than the players on the court in that series

    Terrible yr for this franchise which should have built on top of last yr’s success, instead we’ll have Mid Lottery Pick and a bunch of questions remaining on what to do with our existing roster yet alone what could be added to it to make it better heading into the summer
    If true, you can’t make this up…



    Not sure if the Lakers will be able to get him but when we ask who’s available a franchise that has any prestige, heritage, tradition, savvy, moxy, or culture about them knows everyone for the most part is available for the job at hand

    Vogel was 94 - 49 and won a championship his first 2 years with the Lakers. The idea that he was the problem this last season baffles me.

    Knicks finished 6 games back of 10 seed… 3-17 stretch from Jan 17 - March 4.

    If they go 9-11 that stretch they probably the 10th seed.

    Randle’s 3 point shooting fell from 40 to 30 percent; Rose missed 50 games.

    Thibbs was awful and his style is outdated. But the real failure was on Rose for no PG, pairing Randle and Obi, signing defensively challenged Evan F.
