Frank needs to work on his ball handling like mad.

my eyes are killing me from watching this sh tfest of a game.

we played a huge emotional game vs the celtics (which we destroyed them) so this was going to be a let down. kyle + demar sleepwalking my goodness.

trade deadline passed - there is zero excuse for you guys not to start frank. really doesn't make any sense.

you guys will never be good until you have an aggressive pg that can score. that's the nba today. without an imposing scoring pg, you'll be lucky to be mediocre.

Holding back Beasley makes sense if we want to resign him long term. But agreed, especially when you allow Hardaway to play big minutes while producing nothing.

God, Frank is ****ing terrible. Always picks up his dribble, never gets by anyone and perhaps one of the worst athletes in the league.

Kornet has been very impressive.

I really hope that Jeff can come up with something that actually features the young PG's. The plays aren't really designed to get the PG off. The paint is almost always clogged with a Big so that his defender is also right there in the way. I know he's got to have some semblance of a Spread Set that would move the opposing Bigs out of the Paint. Doesn't matter if it's Jack, Burke or Frank there needs to be more use of spread sets or at least Early Spread PnR to try and attack the Defense Early in the shot clock. That's not what Jeff has the Knicks doing and i'm not sure why he's abandoned Early Spread PnR Action.

He is inconsistent as hell bro.

He averaged 20 and 5 as a starter in 7 games before tonight so save your bull**** lies for your bathroom mirror

Those numbers mean nothing if he is forcing up shots and isn't bringing it on D every night.

Watching Kornet makes me feel less bad about Willy. Yeah, I know, one game...

I blame the coaching cuz there's no way that Frank keeps doing that if you're coaching him properly. The Plays are actually designed for him to give up the ball early. If you look at the sets that's the actual PLAY. Jeff's gotta stop running that SHYTE and give him permission to look to handle the ball. Frank is picking up the ball because that's the play. Bring it up and pass it to the left or right. Then make a shallow cut and come back to the ball.

Kornet is definitely making the most of his opportunity. Looking forward to seeing him with Kanter.

Makes zero sense to hold him back... nobody is paying Beasley based on his reputation. He deserves it thigh. He's really kicking ass.

I'm glad people are finally seeing Frank for what he is. He's not a very good basketball player. I know we all want him to succeed but he truly is terrible.

Kornet immediately had outplayed Willy already in his first game off the street
