Kanter was 10 for 15 last night for 21 points, 15 rebounds, 3 steals, plus 23 (whatever that means) in a win. Obviously you'd rather have Nurkic but Enes is keeping hope alive. And the Blazers got him for nothing -- thank you Knicks!

Hmmmm very interesting. Good game @ Denver, went to the last minute. Denver got the win.
Kanter 24/7 with 4 assists vs the 2nd best team in the west, and MVP candidate Jokic. Played good D as well.

Thought Kanter was supposed to be out of the league by now LOL.

I liked the guy as a Knick and I'm pulling for him. I get the league has changed and all that but I'd say we're seeing the proof there is a place for him as a significant contributor. Figuring the Knicks let him go primarily as a tank move -- he might have won us a few games.

Kanter's game was best suited for a team with a PG who made the most of his mobility on offense. Watching their last game, Lillard was doing a great job of finding Kanter cutting off screens, and he was getting him the ball where he is most effective. Saw Kanter cut in NY lots of times, waiting for the ball, Lillard is finding him.

Dont know how long he can keep playing at this level, but you're right it does show that Kanter has a place in this league. Conditions have to be right.

He's playing for his next contract

When he was traded to the Knicks, to start, he played balls out all the time. Because he wanted a new contract. When it was clear he wasn't going to get one in NY, he stopped giving a ****. He also stopped giving a **** in Utah and in OKC too. Pattern of behavior.

Can't space the floor, doesn't defend the rim. He put in lots of effort on D recently, not the same as actual effective defense or something that has shown to be consistent. He's getting volume because of injury in front of him.

High individual rebounding numbers usually comes at a tradeoff ( no floor spacing, no rim protection, no defensive responsibilities) Many teams will order their bigs to give up on offensive rebound attempts to get back on D, because the odds favor that strategy.

I’m not feeling Wade love. For starters there’s all the Miami NY Knicks hate flowing from Pat the Rat

And Wade always seemed to be more snide than diplomatic when talking about Knicks and FA

Not disrespecting his talent though

Giannis turned down a role in Space Jam 2. Also love his no frills focus. He's no prima donna that's for sure. Wish more superstars were like this instead of the divas we have all over the NBA. Don't get me wrong, there's a place for the fashion shows and roles in hollywood, etc. But at least for some, I can't imagine it would not take away from focus on winning a title. The amount of energy some of these divas put into their fashion statements, goes to show they're not about winning titles. Lebron can handle it, Durant can handle it obviously. Wish more were Giannis like in their approach.


-------------------

Antetokounmpo's eccentricities are a matter of efficiency, not superstition. Like Barack Obama and Steve Jobs before him, the 24-year-old All-Star aims to eliminate all unnecessary decisions and distractions. Instead of a blue suit or a black turtleneck, Antetokounmpo favors Nike Tech Fleece sweatsuits and has no interest in joining the NBA's nightly pregame fashion shows.

"I just want to win," Antetokounmpo says. "All that other stuff takes away from the game, and you just spend extra energy on looking good for five seconds. I don't care about that. I just want to look good on the court. Get the win and go back home and lay on my couch and just watch game film. That's it."

Red Wedding day with the SAC Kings today. Divac fires his assistant, coach, and head of media. He got a 4 year extension himself.
Cites rift between assistant and coach so he can's both. Kings finished a distant 9th but outperformed most expecations.
Dude must have some mojo on his owner. Nalod don't know who to "Blame" but Vlade got lots of pulp in his juice card!!
You don't show a fool a job half done!

Kings are ridiculous when it comes to coaches, that’s the second time they’ve fired one who did well for BS reasons

They let a good one go in Malone! Divas has some personality issues. Can’t say he is doing a bad job but the consolidation of power and frequent dismissals are interesting.

yes this seems completely ridiculous. Admittedly Joegger seems to be throwing of a George Karl vibe as he seems to rub upper mgmt the wrong way; but especially this season he demonstrated he could squeeze a lot of juice out of that orange. Winning plus player development, plus handling personalities.

For all of my criticisms of Knicks FO, they are miles ahead of Sac
