Side note. He is the first PG the Knicks used a lottery selection on since Mark Jackson.

I don't think Mark Jackson was a lottery pick.

Didn't realize that, wow. Mixed emotions about this article. Glad that Frank is taking developing an NBA game seriously. Not so glad that this part of his game needs a good deal of work at the 8 spot.

The sooner I see Frank actually playing for the Knicks, the sooner I can put my reservations in the rearview mirror. Unless DSJ wins rookie of the year. Then I will lose it, lol. Maybe not, if Frank shows something. Something to be positive about.

If he can spend some time with Tony Parker on finishing. I can't think of a better person to learn from.

Same....Especially when you consider what was available at 8. Either way, I'm glad he's working on a weakness, but the fact that he has to work on dribble penetration, which usually comes natural to most point guards, reads to me that he is not a point guard but a 6'5 wing that is still learning to play point....

Hard to teach Parkers lightning quickness and bursts to the rim...

Parker doesn't have a 6'5 frame either and he plays under the basket. Nylikina's speed will surprise some here.

He shy's away from contact, I notice that in all his clips. Most International players are like that.

He needs to be playing pick up games with the big boys

Every time I see another video of this kid, the more excited I get. I know it's an edited video but there is something so smooth about his game that I just love. He has such a soft touch it's as if the ball just feathers its way through the twine. I love how he almost glides across the floor.

I'll fully admit that on draft night I wanted Smith, Monk and Mitchell at 8 but the more I watch this kid the more I see something special. He, KP, Big Willy and Timmy (hopefully Dotson, Baker etc.) really could be a core that carries us to the promised land four or so years from now.

If he sucks, I'm gonna be crushed. But I'm pretty hopeful. Just like those early videos of KP and Willy where you just knew they had something special, I hope this kid has the goods...

What i've said all along he is a secondary ball handler. If he isn't a PG his size advantage becomes a lot less valuable

Frankie does look more like a SG than PG. I do like his jump shot & length but concerned with his quick twitch movement going to the basket. This dude may keep growing and turn into our future SF.

Still think he's in play for Kyrie

Low first round.

The Nets had a much higher pick that year and took a guard. I remember both guys being previewed and hyped before their rookie season started. I can't remember the name of the guy the Nets picked but I don't believe he had much of a career.
I think we know what we're doing..... Phil Jackson

Remember that these videos aren't highlighting his best feature, his defense. And that was what we lacked more than anything last season.

Because Monk and Smith didn't have aspect of their game they needed to work on? I look at it this way, I like the fact that his IQ and defense apparently doesn't need a great deal of work.

if you think so from watching video remember he's bigger than other guards and therefore will literally appear slower. It takes less stride to cover more distance, less movement to cover space and it makes bigger guys look slower.

Or maybe you just think he's slow.

I dont. Watch him on defense and in the open full court the guy runs like a deer. Isiah Thomas has to take 2x the dribbles and steps to cover the same distance. If they do so in similar speed Isiah is going to look like flittering bug while Frank looks like he's lumbering.

But we will see.
