He is very impressive indeed, but he's been used to outpower opponents easily as he is an early bloomer. How does he react when he can't do it so easily because he's facing grown men? That being said, it's going to be very exciting to watch him take on that challenge.

Knox has looked terrible so for, drafting another forward is a good idea

He had one bad game, one pretty good game then was out injured. You're now judging him on his returning games when he hasn't even practiced?! that famous Knick fan patience!

It’s a legitimate question.

Loved how Frank suffocated Young.

Funny how Burke was such an offseason darling. He barely made it a month and he looks out of the rotation.

First thing Frank said in his post game interview was sharing credit for his D on Young, with Kanter, for his help D.

One of the first things Fizdale said as well in his post game presser.

All Frank really needs to do to take his game to the next level is to recognize in game when he's being too much of a spectator, without being told.

When Frank can notice that and make the necessary adjustments, he'll be in very good shape.

Trier has replaced him- he's basically been playing the way we hoped Burke would have

4 games ago I said the next 4 games were winnable, and we only won 2 of them- I'll take it! Next up Raptors, Magic, OKC, Pelican, Magic, Blazers, Celtic, Pelicans, Griz, Pistons, 76ers and Bucks- aside from the Magic all those teams are better than us, we could very well go 2-10. The tank will conquer all

hopefully it boosts Kanter's trade value but I think the league knows what is what

I agree, a player whose value is about more than just numbers.

Which may take many seasons.

Which is fine.

Do you think that's because I love losing? Or do you think maybe it's because at the moment, giving ourselves a better chance of landing a high pick increases our chances of climbing out of this mess long term?

I believe that this type of fandom, cheering for losses within the first few games of the season, every season, like clockwork. Did not exist before the internet.

The lottery was around for a long time before it got here. No one would care 10 games in, no matter how bad the team was, because its a crap shoot, and it has nothing to do with the game.

Now the rules have been changed to make tanking less profitable. Makes one more amazed that this talk is happening again, in the first few weeks of the season.

I was once like you, and it used to annoy me people calling for losses, but what changed for me wasn't the Internet it was the new CBA- it's damn near impossible to build a winner without high picks (either to trade or use).

I genuinely hope this is the last losing season we have, I miss being in the playoff race so badly and the new lottery odds system makes it even harder to land a top pick, but I just feel we need one more top pick in addition to what we already have to take a giant step forward

Do you believe logic didn't exist before the internet? The 1990 Nets, 1084 Rockets and 1987 Spurs are all looked back on as having tanked.

You don't think NFL fans of bad teams understood the implications of their seasons win total when Manning and Elway were on the board?

I have a hard time imagining because the internet didn't exist or team sports forums were still in their infancy that Colts fans didn't realize the implications of the 1996 season and were indifferent to getting the first draft pick.

Was not a fan of drafting Knox but he will get better and is coming off an injury. I don't like that he stays on the perimeter so much, but that maybe due to his ankle not being 100% yet. It's probably also hard finding your role with all of these other young guys being so assertive and trying to prove themselves (eg Vonley, Trier). I see the ssme hesitation with Mario at times, as he doesn't seem to know what to do if he's not handling or cutting when the ball is in the post. I do think both will show more as the season goes on, although I'd be more worried about the confidence of Mario as Knox is young and has time to develop his confidence. Should have a better sense with our players around March. Gotta feel good about Trier, MRob, Hardaway, Vonley and even Mudiay seems to be improving somewhat.
