Seems like Kyle Oquinn fits playing with KP the best. They both can play either the 4 or 5. KO is the type of rugged PF/C that kp needs to play with. Need KP to roam the paint. Kantor is the perfect 2nd unit #1 scoring option while putting defenders all around him.

I was watching the Knicks/Celtics game the other night with the Celtics announcers. One of them made a good point. When Kanter is in the game, you almost have to run the pick and roll because he's the worst center in the league at defending it.

Nixluva is posting triangle screen grabs, even when nobody asks - Fishmike. LOL So are we going to reference that thread like the bible now? "The thread of Wroten Page 14 post 9" - EnySpree

Is Kanter the double double machine really going to sign for a bench role?

When does KOQ become consistent enough to start every game?

When it concludes, will the Noah fiasco rate worse than Eddy Curry mess?

Not sure KOQ can play that level for 35min a game. Not sure he is starter material.
But........
Noah is a financial mess but Eddy was that, and burned what became Lamarcus Aldridge and Noah.
Not even close.

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)

We need to buy out Noah with Dolan's money and gain all of the cap space back. I believe that's how it works.
And then pick up a youngster with the roster spot. Possibly Christian Wood or Nigel Hayes (who has been on fire)?

We should let Jack go too and get another kid. Why not?

You can just Google it or ask if you don't know.

Buying out Noah, unless he gives back significant $, does not gain you cap space. No one, not the Knicks nor Noah have even hinted at a buyout.

my hope is next year's head coach gives Noah a chance, because there is no point to pay him for nothing

Noah is the basketball version of Jacoby Ellsbury..

I do agree that he should be playing.. he’ll be overpaid but he can be a decent backup center that can lead a young group of reserves, setting up the defense. Would rather have Noah as our defensive coordinator than Rambis.

Wow forgot about the Aldridge pick. Although picks really didn't matter back then. Renaldo Balkman... holy sheehit. Thank you, IT.

when your "win now", picks are abstract. LIke "Student Debt". Seems like a good idea at the time but when your a PHD. and slinging coffee at starbucks because that doctorate in "Lost civilization Mayan oral sex techniques" in with an $800 a month payment due and 7% going to interest in hindsight is questionable.

However entertaining they may be, your analogies are starting to enter the realm of requiring a prescription. Or at least a warning label.

My new health insurance plan sucks. Not your fault, but just saying.

Endeavor for less keystrokes in 2019!
