so if your not a championship contender you should just tank..wtf kind of thinking is that,

They have a system and a style, and the right kind of role players that fit there system..wtf do we have?

Nets have their own pick for the first time in years. Losing gives them a higher chance of a higher pick, which their franchise badly needs right now (I'll wager they miss out in free agency). If you're not a championship contender and aren't really a playoff contender then yes you need to tank to give yourself the best shot at adding talent to your roster.

This sounds like a typical knick still thinkING the draft is the only way out of misery..

the NETS players are progressing and developing nicely and it shows in the win loss column.

Mills said hE's pretty happy with our development, because our guys are not getting down on themselves after losses...Thats a good sign for him....LMFAO..THEY DONT GIVE A FCK WHETHER THEY LOSE OR NOT..

When has the knicks built a team thru the draft and stayed with it?
and if its been a while, how can you call it "Typical"?
Typical was the 54 win woodson starphuch retirement season you so lovingly like to recall.

You don't show a fool a job half done!

Good podcast with some Knick stuff in there. Sam and his partner talk about a couple of Hardaway trade scenarios as part of the pod.

Typical was the 54 win woodson starphuch retirement season you so lovingly like to recall.

It's been awhile. Like 30 years. Howsabout listing the 1st round draft picks since Ewing the knicks were supposed to build a team around?

I think "Typical" is a reference to the prevailing fandom approach to collecting shiny new things via the lottery and then rooting brainlessly for home-cooking as opposed to inheriting or buying other people's stuff.

54 wins and a division title is all we have to show since Ewing/Sprewell. Unless a star with a cool nickname and being in the lottery every year is your preference.
Which leads to even more new shiny things, I get it.

And yes, I'll be the first on the shiny thing brainlessly rooting bandwagon should someone fix the ping pong balls so we get the new Jesus of Mount Zion. The Golden Zoobie?

Hope is a good thing. And nothing good ever dies, but it just may not make the playoffs.

Wait, did you let Melo in the room? you did. Melo, Amare, Dice, Marbles and even Phil......All the shiny new things anointed into a savior.
Rainman is simple. He wants to win. He prefers we hire winners. Instead we hired people who have yet to win. Life uncertain.
Funny, once upon a time we had a guy named Eddie Donovan who was the GM, and with Holzmans input they drafted a traded to build a winner. They even turned Bill Bradley who was a rookie bust and made him into a HOF. How? Patience.
Eddie took a pay check and went to manage the buffalo Braves and Red eventually retired. Then Both came back and it was awful. The knicks starphuched themselves! No antidotal evidence or lesson other than hiring a winner is not a formula for success. Have to start a culture and it takes time. We tried with Willis Reed but great players don't always make for effective coaches. The one we missed on was Phil Jax. We starphuched and did not build our culture from within. Debussure was a great player and a knick God, but other than lady luck on Ewing what did he really do? Not his fault, but he too was a starphuch. He did not have the experience at that level. WE bought him in after he was brief commish of the floundering ABA who themselves needed a face.
SAS hired Pop who had no real experience other than proved himself in the Larry Brown Tree. Riley In NY was great but we could not keep him, instead JVG and Thibs was in his tree. For that matter Fiz via Riles and Spolestra. So Rainman1248 should be happy. But he is not. The great ones rarely bring the greatness with them, its either cultivated or inherited. Kudo's to Dumars in Detroit but did he inherit it? He could not Sustain it or duplicate it elsewhere. Knicks starphucked with Isiah and it was a bloody disaster!!!
JRod, I don't blame Melo as you know. I blame the circumstance he was put into. Maybe only Lebron could have made that work. Jordan had Pippen. Kobe had Shack and Gasol. Melo has JR Smith and deteriorating Amare. Woodson mirage season was a retirement party.
Patience. Ainge has been in boston a long time now. He as not without his critics for a while.
You can do that in Boston because they have quite the resume. Its why Yankees can rebuild. They were patient.
Knick fans have little faith to back on nor a culture to breed. Because guys like knicks1248 are impatient, short sighted and incoherent about what the knicks are doing it actually gives me some validity we are on the right path. Longing for the starphuch is like starving but wanting candy. empty calories.
Make no bones about it, the knicks are a hot mess right now. We have prospects and a future. Its Fuzzy and no words can bring it to focus. there are prayers too!!

We will hear that KAT and Wiggins didn’t like hard practices or expending energy on D (my guess at least) and that they were getting in owners ear that he lost the he team
Martin: Hezonja will be in the NBA next year.

meanwhile down in Philly Butler is not happy with Brown's offense and has leverage because he is a free agent.
We got our own problems for sure but so do many others!!!
KAT and Wiggins is the future core of that team. Thibs does wear down his players. Kat and Wiggins got lableled by Butler but one has to wonder the truth?

Ron Baker waived again.
Cameron Payne waived.

sigh, why oh why did we not sign justin holiday when we had the chance, he was traded last week for 2 players AND 2 2nd round picks!! like WTF
he's making only 4.5 million this year. He was what we hope Frank could at least become.

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

This one is on Mills in the midst of all the GM interviewing. Perry was hired a week later after Justin Holiday signed with Bulls. Thanks for playing, please try your hate again.

Eh, I would've preferred Holiday, Simmons, over THJ for salary purposes. That is on Mills. That said, Bulls are pressing hard in the Tankathon. It'll be tough if they trade Lopez and Parker. Lopez is a solid vet who can help get an extra win or two. Parker is the ultimate tank commander. Boylen needs to do a better job of unleashing his chemistry killing potential.
