Hardaway got a tough matchup with Roberson who will only be focused on stopping him from heating up since Hardaway will be our 2nd feature. It will show me something if Hardaway is able to still get his.

Beas will probably play vs Melo a lot tonight. He said he is just as talented as them lol. So at least for the night time for him to put up.

Session will be food for Westbrook though. Were talking about MVP vs scrap heap end of career. And odds aren't high that Frank will be able to handle him at this stage.

Westbrook dominates everyone. Nobody is safe.... so Saying he's gonna destroy Sessions and the rookie is a not saying anything. He destroys everyone.

Paul George is a matchup that well kill us. If feet do it right, he's the Scottie pippen on that team. He's the secondary ball handler. The true all around scorer and facilitator. Melo is toni kukoc... Westbrook is Jordan. If they run it like that they will be tough. This is day one and anything can happen.

You know why I'm here....

KP will be on melo first.....I would pit Lance Thomas on melo.....hes our best SF defender. KP will leave melo open which can hurt or help.....depends if melo gets hot early with his jumper. But KP on melo in the post? I like KPs chances.

Sun's suffer the worst season opening loss in nba history. Knicks gently push the sun's aside and say:"we got this"

Ha, nothing can be worse than that opening game we lost against the Celtics (I think it was in the q rich era) after we'd talked all that trash and they absolutely thumped us!

Ha - read about the Suns game earlier and had the same thought. Seems like the Knick thing to do!

At this point, I'll take the beating and the L as long as no one suffers these opening night injuries like Hayward or Lin.

The Knicks just need to get their feet wet and use this game to start to build chemistry. I just wanna see this team grow. Facing a top team right off the bat is tough but it’s only one game!

We're going to surprise a lot of people. We're 15 deep with a good mix of veterans and youngsters. Frank and Dotson will help us a lot defensively. Kanter will be a force, especially in the East. KP should emerge this season and Willy will improve too. We're better than Boston.

I think this game will be more competitive then it should be because OKC will probably try and force the ball to melo more then in a typical game to ensure he shows us what we're missing. he probably will have a big game but this will make their offense more predictable which will help our very fragile defense attempt to get stops

Damn excited for tonight...less than an hour to go, Go Knicks!
Patience with the rebuild, keep all the picks, no starphucks, and team-first attitude. Marinate a couple years and we're playing like the '72 team. Championship here we come!

This is it. Just want the see the team grow this year. Everyone should finally be able to accept that with this roster. Looking forward to the season despite not expecting tons of wins. GO KNICKS!!!

So Barkley thinks we'll make the playoffs??

Okay...only because the East is trash after a few teams.

Let's do this!
