Hope is a good thing. And nothing good ever dies, but it just may not make it too far in the playoffs. Or maybe it will...next year... after we trade away everything for Kawhi... and Dame... and CP3...

Did you guys know that Mitchell Robinson has the single season All-Time NBA record for the best FG% ever?

Well. He's back to his regular self.

He once again leads the entire league in FG% here in 2021-2022.

HE'S BAAAAACCCCKKKKK

In order for him to unlock his potential he needs to hit free throws to start and then develop ONE move. David Lee is a good example of how to upgrade your game over the summer

Why is it ever couple of years we read up a report of one of the Knicks players bulking up in the off season like it's a good thing? I can't remember even ONE example where that player can in and played better than before, and usually the opposite.

Who said you had to gain weight to be stronger, this isn't football, so I don't get it, speed, skill, foot work and stamina is what matters in the NBA.

It's ok to bulk up a little, but adding 20 to 30 pounds will slow that ass down, and we're talking about a guy who was already struggling to keep up.

At some point Mitch had to get bigger. He was getting pushed out. perhaps the consensus of his 6 agents had been suggesting if he wants to get paid he has to bulk up too. He is still flying for his oops but the guys that are leaping a lot get leg issues or land wrong and its a big deal.

Obviously his foot break is not the type that would exasperated by more weight or he and his people are incredibly stupid. Lets assume they know more than we do.

Was our slow start vs Mil his “Fault” and we cry for Norlens to start? Easy for fans to make the call in hindsight, but we are not accountable for the game plan.

I think it all falls into place. Mitch is unrestricted at end of season. Can we extend him anytime between now and then? Not sure how a 4 year 2nd round pick who had a 4 year deal works contract/cap wise.

Time to trade him was last year if that was the plan, but his injuries were untimely for that.
I don’t know how this all pans out. Sometimes you sign free agents, and sometimes you let guys go.
Maybe we building for a mid season trade with some substance.
Like Haliburten and Bagley for Obi and Mitch. Just an example. Haliburton is excess for them as OBI is for us. Mitch is better than Bagley and perhaps we can resign Bagley and get his career restarted with Kenny Payne goodness. Don’t get me wrong, I love Obi and love to seem him star, but there is no clear path to him starting with randle ahead of him. Good for him, good for us. Haliburton is a good fit here off the bench for now.

Lee had a jump shot for maybe 1.5 seasons of his career and he was never even close to the defensive presence Mitch is he was a 8 point 10 rebound guy who didn’t rim protect, was an average at best on ball defender and was simply a likable player on some really bad Knick teams

Not being a rim protector is a galactic understatement; let's not forget DLee perfected the "use hyperlightspeed mode to remove one's self from posterization" move.

I did like how he made fun of Gallo though.

DLee was a 6-5 guard Mcdonalds dunk champ heading into college and had a growth spurt. He left and florida ran back to back chips with Billy Donovan and Noah in his place. He was a tweener.
He was a PF and for all his warts was all star here and in San Fran. He was no Dave Cowens and really as center shown how bad we were to put him there. His defense sucked but he had to stay on the court and out of foul trouble.

It is crazy how popular David Lee was. The guy literally had a pregame Jumbotron movie that got a standing ovation when he returned to the Garden in 2010 with the warriors. You’d a thunk he had won multiple championships here


That’s what happens when the Knicks are flat out God awful during the Isiah years and had one likable guy on the roster

Lee couldn’t guard a guy in a wheelchair nor was he ever much of a shooter but those 9 boards a game were sure exciting

Peak DLee, did this a few seasons. 2 time allstar with two teams, 20 pts, 11 rebs, 3 assists. The team sucked, he played. His defense at center? Awful. Why play him there? Ask Isiah.
