I don?t recall too many 21 year old kids dominating games in the 4th. This is a man?s league. Give him time.

Stop making age excuses for this guy, who been receiving super All-Star minutes for 3 seasons.
How old were Ja Morrant when he put the Grizz on his back to take them to the Playoffs?

In the fourth quarter of their last seven games, the Knicks:

* have been outscored by 73 points (203 to 130)

* have shot 29.2% from the field

* have shot 19.0% from downtown

* have committed 33 turnovers while dishing out just 26 assists

hmmm think they need a point guard??

It obvious that most didn't notice the message in the 1st quarter that was send by the Heat.

I think it was the second time Randle touch the ball. The Heat double Randle and force him to pass the ball. The Heat didn't double anybody else on the Knicks. Why and what was the message. The WHY!! The Heat said Randle might can beat us. The Message!! We aren't afraid of anybody else beat us, period!!

For all of you jumping up and down about 46 pt performance from RJ. The Knicks got beat by 15 pt. If the ref didn't bail out RJ numerous times during the game it would have been more. More minutes and more shoots than anybody else on the team and your team get beat by 15 pt.
** So does RJ having a good game translate into anything positive for the Knicks?
** During the game was there any electricity for the Knicks produce by RJ scoring?
** I'll say it.... Did he transform the Knicks anyway?

Ok all you supporter of an overpaid for #3 overall pick. This is what you get for all of your effort to prove this wasn't a mistake. You got 46 pt!! The rest of us and the Knicks got a lost!!

I taped the game but didn?t watch it. I assumed the result. I?m glad RJ is showing out! That?s a plus. I guess JR is back why the Lakers gave up on him. Knicks-Tank is rolling again. Shame. One year in the playoffs and then back to the bs. Rinse and repeat. Fire everyone, Blow it up, start over. New GM, same results. This season was lost last offseason when the only help found was Fournier. Please please no more French players to the Knicks.

Exactly! Time and help! RJ?s Duke team with ZION and CAM would give this current Knicks team a problem. Extend RJ and get him some help ASAP!!!(as in the draft and upcoming off-season).

From day one it has always been excuses.
Never not one of them ever thought about the effects it has on the team. It always about him and never about is he worth the price paid for him. See they want answer or respond to that question. If you notice they all run and hind and blaming someone else for him not having a good year or stat?s.
As I said in another post. They wanted him to be the face of the Knicks. Well at the expense of those of us that know he is a bum. We have to suffer with stupidity and incompetent of the F.O.
This bum isn?t Benard King that electricify his team.

The Knicks might have the best homegrown player since Patrick Ewing in RJ. If the NYK have any chance of retaining him then Dolan needs to quickly put the team up for sale or experience a Donald Sterling type of scandal. I have been a Knicks fan long enough to be aware of the fact that RJ will most likely walk away from the Knicks once he is eligible to due to the poor infrastructure of the organization.
 
No one walks away from a rookie max extension. If the Knicks offer RJ his max extension of 5 years 181 million this coming fall when he is eligible, then he will take it.

Sounds like everyone either thinks we should max extend him or we should trade him.

Let us pray that the time will get here real quick.
Not sure what is worst. Having Dolan keep the team and RJ leave or Dolan sale the team and RJ stays. Either way it spells doom for the Knicks.

What needs to happen not to wake up everybody about RJ. He isn't worth resigning. The Knicks already overpaid for him with a #3 overall pick and not you add insult to injury and resign him.

Did last night show you anything? He does nothing for the team, the team, the team. His stat's do not affect the bottom line and that is winning.

Yeah, then your choice is we trade him like we did with KP. You don?t try to lowball him, because then he will walk and we get nothing and we can?t afford to keep getting nothing.

My choice is to get of that good for nothing parasite that suck all of the damn goodness out of this team. At all cost!! He is the face of this insanity not the mastermind. I don?t give a damn if we get a single thing for him. Get rid him and everybody connected with this sad state of affairs.
If last night didn?t wake you up nothing will. There is no success for the Knicks as a team as long RJ is featured.
Makeup your damn mine which is going to be him or the team??
The light and the dark can not exist together!!

Ridiculous?.
Been paying attention lately to the Knicks state of affairs??
Seen anything Good??
You use on word ?ridiculous? for my comments. Like you, I done nothing to put the Knicks in their current state but my comments are ?ridiculous?!!
Again, all you said was one word. Not an explanation about what is ?ridiculous?.
From that one word it obvious you see no problem with the Knicks.
I Don?t!!

Last night game showed me the 13th pick in the 2019 draft (Herro) are a much-much better winning-player than the 3rd pick in the 2019 draft (RJ Barrett).
Herro performance plays team-ball as a combo-guard with his teammates something RJ Barrett's performance has been clueless to do for 3 seasons.
The Knicks FO has done some real stupid things lately, but resigning Barrett and not watching Barrett's performance alongside a legit NBA PG for a season would be the same as last night 15 point LOSS against the Heats. Hooray for Barrett's 46 pt game!
But the Knicks individual ISO performance throughout the game got shut-down and could only score 15 points in the 4th quarter giving the Knicks a 4th straight loss, plus a 2-8 run in the Knicks last 10 games !!!

Letting Barrett score for 3 quarters, and shutting Barrett down in the Final quarter seem like a coach Spoe plan to me...

That may be true?

But reverse the roles, and have RJ coming off a bench on a loaded roster, with a star leader, and put TH on this NYK team?. It?s all relative.

RJ has been a stud since Jan 1. Sure, great idea. Let?s just release him.

First they cried he could never play or produce? now they say he?s not a winning player. He was a top rotation guy in a team that finished 4th in EC, his second season, at age 20.

That?s not winning something? What were you doing at 20?

The amount of negativity you put on RJ is just silly.
WE all blame the FO and coaching yet for some reason its back to RJ.
For you to think RJ is worthless well thats whats ridiculous.
You say the Knicks FO has ruined players in the past yet you feel RJ is Teflon to that.
I would resign RJ for sure.
