    When I first post may thoughts about Dallas and Luka. I said, the ball moves with him not on the floor. Brunson had the ball moving when at the PG while when Luka is on the floor Dallas is the slowest team in the league. You might want to go back and check to see if that was what I said.

    RJ isn't a victim!! That is what you guys want him to be so you can have an excuse for his sorry play. Well sir, That doesn't hold water with me so try that on someone else. That same crappy Knicks organization drafted RJ... So did they make a mistake?

    BTW, in your above reply to my post. There are several questions that were asked of you and you didn't touch or answer any. WHY??

    As for Burks, the truth of matter he was playing out of position. So he did the best he could do under the circumstances. I'm not a big Burks fan but I have come to appreciate him as good bench player.

    Which of these players are the best SG? Burks
    Which of these players are the best SF? Again Burks
    Are SF Bullocks going to the WCF??? Yes, but I wasn't a fan of Bullocks play. I never saw what everybody was talking about with Bullock. I never saw the great outside shooting or the defense they say he was playing.
    I will admit I did like Burks performance as Bullocks backup, and as a trio back court (D.Rose, Quickley, Burks). However, the Mavs trio Bullocks, Finney, and Kleber's Defensive intensity has done wonders for the Mavs success in the postseason games, holding Utah Jazz to 77 pts in Game 5, and holding the Suns to 90 pts and under the final two games of the series were pure team-defense.

    The Knicks NEEDED PG Payton's 24 minute performance in the Knicks rotation throughout the NBA 2021-22 season.

    I have to admit that I didn’t see game 7 with Sun’s. Just looking at the stat sheet said this was a horrible time for the Sun’s to have a shooting slump. Below 40% for the whole game. I don’t think that happened all year.
    It reminds me of Hoyas vs Wildcats in the NCAA finals. Wildcats shot an amazing almost 80% from the floor that night and won by single digits(forgot the score). 9 out 10 times the Hoyas win this game. This one of those time when things like this happen.

    Cuban ain’t signing him if someone offers him the max. He’s got Dinwiddie to replace him if someone is stupid enough to offer him the max. I agree with Mafra about (not) paying guys for one good series or one good season.

    They asked this question at the end of the half , “What do Luka and the Suns have in common”. Answer, they both scored 27 pts in the first half, 27 pts sparked the Suns fans to boo their team heading to the locker room in a game 7 which I don’t think I’ve ever seen in a game 7 on any home court in the NBA.

    I hope you changed your mind about Luka as well. Mavs made a gutsy move ditching Porzingis and admitting that Euro super duo was a failure and it paid immediate dividends for them, plus gives them cap and trade flexibility in the future.

    Don’t count your chic’s before they are hatched!!

    I didn’t make my comments base on not seeing Luka and the Mav’s. Again, it was base on ball movement on him not being on the court.

    One time 9 out of 10 times the Sun’s are going to beat the in that game 7. Shooting that high of % from the field was the major factor in Mav’s win. Play that same game today and the Mav’s will lose.

    The Maverick trading KP IMO wasn’t a good move. All they did was weaken their front line, again IMO. If you chose to believe in Luka by all means. That belief IMO should be base on what you see not the observations of other. Because you sound like everyone that is trying to be nice when mentioning Luka. The things I have said aren’t base on dislike but on what the eyes truly see. Now go back and read my opinion on Luka.

    Hard to calculate your Math? 9/10 times PHO wins Game 7 or the 7-game series?

    Mavs did win 4 games… 4/7… so, if they played game 7 10 times, based on winning 4/7 games in this series, then I would venture to guess DAL wins that game at least 6/10 times.

    Kidd owned the supposed COY. PHO a paper tiger.

    The Mavs beating the Utah Jazz and the Phoenix Suns in a post season series had little to do with Luka's star performance, and lot's to do with the decision-making of the winning head coach Kidd. In February coach Kidd seen he needed a confident play-making PG (Dinwiddie) in his rotation to play alongside of Luka & Brunson's offensive scoring to have a better chance at beating the many top contender teams in the West.
    The KP trade for Dinwiddie gave head coach Kidd the weapon to get the Mavs to the WCF.
    Truth be said ....
    I thought the Utah Jazz was going to beat the Mavs in 5 games.
    I also thought the Phoenix Suns were gonna sweep the Mavs.
    Now, I still believe the 2nd best ball-movement team in the league this season the GS Warriors will sweep the Mavs in the WCF.
    If the Mavs win a game against the Warriors in the series, it's from coach Kidds offense/defense strategy.
    The last time the Mavs visit the WCF the Mavs had PG Jason Kidd running the show .. And the team gave the MVP to Dirk LOL !!!

    I wanted to keep Bullock and sign Dinwiddie if you recollect, couldn’t have been any worse then with Kemba and Fournier. The Mavs gave up on Porzingis because he couldn’t stay on the court and as I told Dark that Cuban would be fed up paying that Euro duo 70M a year to play .500 ball, they took back Dinwiddie and Bertans because the Wiz wanted to part ways with Dinwiddie and they thought it would be easier to deal 2 smaller contracts instead of KPs huge one. Dinwiddie earned his money with game 6 and 7 and I didn’t get what his problems were in DC but the Mavs may have made out esp if Brunson walks.

    I think the Dubs win also but no sweep. Mavs beat the team with the most wins so you have to give them a chance to pull off an upset.

    Wsup Tiger .. I got the Dubs sweeping the Mavs in the WCF.
    Jason Kidd may be a great post season head-coach, but Steve Kerr has two head coaches as assistance, plus the Splash Bro., Green leadership, and two star role-players in Wiggins & Poole to make the Warriors dynamic rotation what the majority of the NBA teams are trying to duplicate each season in their teams.

    We both wanted to keep the Knicks best defensive hustler in the starter lineup name Bullocks. The only Knicks starter no Knicks fans had any complaints about throughout the season as a starter. None of the Knicks SF this past season came close to comparing up to Bullocks hustle performance.
    The Knicks 2021-22 season without Bullocks became a Knicks team without defense.

    FA PG Dinwiddie/Schroder were a Knicks Priority to be the first signing in 2021 offseason.
    Signing FA Fournier as the Knicks first FA signing of the 2021 offseason, a player that plays the same exact position as Knicks contracts RJ Barrett, Burks, Quickley, and the new rookie Grimes, to become the BIG JOKE of Knicks president Leon Rose/Perry FO career. And the Icing on the Knicks FO JOKE-Cake were trading for Cam Reddish early in the season who also play at the same position as the players mention above.
    The trio of Burks, Fournier, and Barrett in the starter lineup from November to April showed no chemistry together, nor did the trio co-exist together in the starter lineup vs any Knicks opponents.

    Hey Tiger... will you look at the stat sheet last game of the Sun's series with Mav's. Then if you would look at the last game of the series with G.S. Warriors. Something should jump out at you when it comes to Luka in both games and rest of the Mav's in stat's in last game of the Sun's series.

    I know it may be asking a lot but if you could I think it would give you some idea of my assessment of Luka. Those two games are very telling about a player everybody consider a Star.

    If I'm Cuban... I'm trading Luka to any fool that would want him. The Knicks may be the only fool in the league and would probably jump at the opportunity.

    Tell me what you think when to look at the stat's.

    Let’s call a spade a spade here. If we can’t attract a free agent when we literally just hired his dad, then we should just give up on free agency forever.

    Got a question to anyone that can(not want) answer it.
    Would not the whole(not part) of the offensive scheme have to be changed in order for Brunson to fit??

    Before you answer think about what Knicks offense looks like full court and then Half-Court. Think about the ball ????!!
