Does a lot of nice things out there -- very good shooter, handles it well, goes to the glass, strong looking post up game...Playing some real good ball of late for the Latvian national team. I see Memphis drafted him 60th overall a few years back, then traded his rights to the Magic sometime after that. Remember the name, this dude can ball:


I have begin seeings his game on these clips and fully agree. He seems to anchor that team as a QB. Sorry to hear someone in his rights, maybe the magic would take someone we have as a swap? KP and Timma seem to combine really well and often.

I mentioned him earlier in the thread. Dude is a NBA player. He's very effortless and tough.

To compare... the way he plays is the way we need Melo to play with KP. Melo needs to let the ball fly and dio his thing. Holding the ball is destroying the team. If Melo let's the ball go, it will definitely come back. KP and Timma are proving that every game. They both are getting theirs. High 20s for both just about every night.


He reminds me a little of Andres Nocioni on offense. The guy looks like he has the physical part of NBA play down. Anyone knows how he is on defense?

I like it. He has that old man game.

I remember couple years ago he said he doesn't want to go to NBA to sit on a bench, I don't know how he feels about it now

please don't spread imaginary info - he never said that. His point was that he won't go to any training camp, SL, etc. without contract, and that's it.

The thing that sticks out to me
Latvia really looks for KP
The Knicks don't do that

KP needs to get the ball when moving the way he is for Latvia.

This is why we needed to move on from Rose and Melo.

All these guys competing over the summer (and not just training) is good stuff. Hope to see some new wrinkles in their games next season, or just better execution.

I really hope Frank can develop some BBall ESP with these guys. That and some team defense would make for a good season.

I keep hearing this. But everytime I turn to the channel there is nothing on. Maybe its not available on the West coast. Not even on the cable guide.
