You living in Romania, Rady? Do you live in the East side of the country, near the border with Ukraine. BBC News had story on Romanian border towns yesterday?.

Reading about Byzantine Empire and the following link:

Seems war has spilled out of the Ukraine-Russian border, from Central Asian steppes, into the Great Plains of Europe for thousands of years?

Makes me appreciate being surrounded by 2 oceans and living on the other side of the world.

Hard to worry about RJ or a PG or other Frivolous nonsense when armies are marching in the name of some tyrants ego.

If you saw the game last night without Randle. What is your opinion on whether the Knicks are better off with him or without him?
I told Kiya in another thread just look at the team without Randle. I?m not a big Randle fan but for the unteenth time I have said in the right situation as a #2 or #3 he would be a much better player. Like he was in N.O.

The Knicks perform better as a TEAM without Randle.
Last night, the Knicks rotation of players beat the Hawks.
Coach Thibs in and out substitution loss the game on purpose (TANKING).
The Knicks bench lineup (having 3 rookies) are still better than Thibs starter lineup.
The bench lineup went on a 10-2 run in 3 min in the 4th quarter, and Thibs imediately took them out the game. And know Obi Toppin in the 4th quarter .. Tanking and trying to get old man Taj injured playing the entire 4th quarter.

Tanking?. Generally there is a plan to do that. If There are several players in the draft that would help. This F.O. doesn?t have a clue about what is needed for this team. Anyway if they are trying to tank why win the game last night?
Well, the team is 1&1 with Randle out of the lineup. Didn?t see the game with Hornets. So at best they are .500 and that is being very generous. There are to many things wrong with this team. As use now Randle could be seen as a problem. That isn?t my take on him. Used correctly and the weight of not being the #1 option would make him better. Now if we could find another #2 option then let him go. But where are we going to find that??
With no #1 or #2 options( if you trade Randle) you have a team that is led be RJ. Seems like your position on RJ has softened? well mine hasn?t.
If this team stays in the current state and get rid of Randle there are no good out comes.
Who would want to play with RJ given what is being talk about around the league. Do you really think players aren?t saying ? I?m not getting into that mess?!!
Saw CP3 talking with Peyton on the bench during the Knicks game. What do you think they were saying? Peyton telling Paul about promises made and not kept? about not being played by Thib?s? maybe about not playing Frank during the Hawks playoff games. And that just one conversation. Just think of all of the conversation being had between players. This isn?t good!!

SOLUTIONS?? If you think a team led by RJ is good?.Well??
