Funny, All summer we were left to imagine a game without Melo and here he is on opening night!

I don't care about Melo, I hope he scores 50 points, but young knicks win!!!!
OKC will have to figure their Shyt out, but we got our own thing to work on!!!

Sessions goes down early in the first quarter and Frank comes in and wins the game. A star is born.

Even with Noah on the suspended list. That still leaves 16 players. Someone still gonna have to get cut. Most likely Jack. Then when Noah comes back another will have to get cut which will probably be Kornet. The NBA expanded to a 15 man roster. But do they allow 15 men to dress? Or is the 15 man roster only to hold 2 players in the G-League on the 2 way contract?

New roster is up to 17 with up to 2 two-way players.

Kornet is 2-way player, reason he'all be around for a few weeks is the g league doesn't start until early November.

Knicks are one 2-way player short of the max, not one over.

I see, I was going by a 15 man roster. If the roster is upped to 17 then we good.

I am hoping, if nothing else, this season brings chemistry and growth and that we finish stronger than we start.

I don't want to tank; too often tanking is more an excuse and a symptom of ineptness further manifested with poor drafting, signings, etc. We should focus on success.

the last couple of years have started with modest success, imploded and ended with increasing bitterness.

Can we have an office pool to decide how many games it takes for RW, Melo, and PG to be the focus of rumors of unhappiness; or Harden and CP3 complaining about the use of only one basketball at a time?

Good fun. I suspect we hang in there, trail by 5 or so at half, and at some point in the 3rd or 4th OKC goes on a 18-2 type run and the rest is just stats. Then again Frank/KP/Lee might just shut down the OKC big 3 and Knicks win in a shocker behind 20 bench points from Beas and 15 boards from Willy along with a solid defensive effort from the starters. I could just happen!

If we recall the past 6 consecutive seasons vs OKC we been expecting a matchup between Melo vs Durant .. but every game Westbrook take over the show recording a triple-double to blow-out the Knicks.
I recall one Christmas day game Knicks vs OKC watching Westbrook jump over Tyson Chandler for several rebounds to have a triple-double handing the Knicks an embarrassing loss on Christmas day. Then after the game Westbrook went on a season injury vacation.
I could see what Paul George 2 way performance adds to OKC Westbrook triple-double performance, I dont see what Iso-Melo adds to OKC .. i guess Melo will replace Kanter inside scoring but from the perimeter.

The match up of Melo vs KP should be interesting ....
