The uniKorn.
Is he KP's equal? Better than Willy? Our best 3 point shooter?
All of the above?
His first game was outstanding so let's hope for the best.

Oh, btw, I like Nigel Hayes better than Hicks for our team. He's much more versatile and an excellent 3 point shooter too. Can defend the perimeter with his long arms.

Right now Mike D'Antoni is drooling at the possibility of adding the UniKorn to his roster. Imagine the possibilities.

Knicks should guarantee him for this year, next year, and team option the 3rd year. They have nothing to lose. Definitely worth a roster spot.

HE looked good!!! Now I am sure, the league will adjust and it will get harder for him BUT, he has some skills and maybe just maybe he can fill a stretch 4/5 role.

I was pleased with his shot blocks and rebounds more than anything.

LuKornet!

Yet another mistake by Dolan. When will it end?

I saw him play and he was doing this in Westchester. Question is translation to NBA and the kid is Skinny. Next man up. Willy didn’t want to go to Gleague.

Knicks1248: 1. Dolan should be more involved! 2. Why would any knick fan want pick 8, when that spot has a history of producing marginal NBA taken. (He prefers pick 9th instead)

Can Kornet fill out and get a lot stronger? Sounds like he can turn into a solid back up

Kornet is a modern 3nD Center! Dude is literally the complete opposite of Willy. Knicks have used the revamped G League team well.

Nigel Hayes might have a future with us too. He's a modern four. Long, rangy and can definitely shoot the three. Plus he knows our system well. Don't we have 2 open roster spots?

I don't see him playing the four much, but his defensive rebounding was encouraging. He'll probably never be much of an offensive rebounder, but he'll be less of a liability if he can hold down the defensive rebounding. He at least brings something different to the table from our other 5s.

Always... always remember: Less is less. More is more. More is better and twice as much is good too. Not enough is bad, and too much is never enough except when it's just about right. - The Tick

Kornet is pretty mobile for a 7fter. Curious to see how a Kanter/Kornet frontcourt would look. Pretty
sure we'll see it at some point this season.

Not sure about that. Kornet probably gets killed guarding fours. I didn't see that kind of mobility from him. You noticed he was always paired with Hicks coming in. Hicks struggled but he impressed me with his bounciness and mobility. What did you think off him?
