RJ was solid; AB and Fournie stepped up? Sims and Obi helping out. A pretty easy and surprising win for the Knicks in ATL, vs a hot Hawks squad.
Cam and DeAndre Hunter a nice consolation from that Zion-Ja-RJ draft, but didn?t help much in this game.
Gives you hope they found a way today? keep treading water!
Oh, is it obvious? Start AB over Kemba!
Kemba is arguably our most lethal shooter. He's obviously going to get rest days, but ruling him out of the rotation will only set us back as other teams have 5-6 guys who can lite it up from the perimeter. Kemba will always be a vital asset on this team.
Averages 43% FG 41% with a very low turnover ratio. Of course it's the worst season of his career (60% health), but playing him will only turn it around this season. It can benefit our team in the long run into the playoffs where Kemba has experience in and isn't a slouch.
Kemba can be the 2011 Jason Terry to a team who's just meshing and we stand in the middle of offense/defense (we are ranked 16th in both). We're still forming an identity as a defensive team who added offensive weapons and we are clearly trying to mesh that.
Grimes has a lot of sniper potential and seems to have an awareness on the court that would fit us.
However, we need a wing player like Knox to come in and step up to the plate finally. Rose is trying to heal up and I would like to see Grimes/Knox play together with Quickley and Toppin.
I know Knox has been terrible, his length/size/speed would help us in match ups, Knox can D up. He's more of a traditional SF than we have on our roster. It would bring some type of balance.
No to Ben Simmons, he's a soft and not made for winning basketball. Giving up on a Philly team that is stacked is just pathetic and we should end the notion that Simmons would make us improve. Certainly his defense/passing is an asset. But having Simmons on the floor with Robinson will exploit us offensively and defensively.
I would be on board for Ben if he wasn't such a dramaqueen and didn't bail on his team.
Kiya, what makes you think Simmons would be loyal to NY if he can't even be loyal to the team who nursed his injuries, tank for SEASONS so Ben can finally play a game and mesh with 76ers and built the entire team around Ben's weaknesses? Ben in NY would be a career killer if his career isn't dead already. Of course he's an elite talent, who else is going to be 6"11 and average 14ppg + 7apg + 7pg+ with defense? I see your vision on this, but it will only add more drama and mess to NY and the media will eat that up.
