At least 3 of them have a good chance of being turned away from a nightclub for being underaged.

Bon anniversaire, Frankly Bones. May your hard work pay off exponentially.

Hopefully the Search Feature will work better in this iteration.
The Past was always there, just largely inaccessible.

There was a YouTube posting about our Platinum Pup, Kevin Knox. 

At the conclusion, there was a picture of the coach/mentor Kevin has been working out with. 

ROD STRICKLAND.

Interesting, no?

Would indicate that he is still working really hard on his handle. 

Keep growing young man, keep growing. 

6'9"

6'11" would be sweet.

Hoopshype had something about that, mentioning that Strickland is Kyrie's godfather (?), and connecting rather far apart dots I presume.


Melo continues to sound like a doofus.
His initial response to this Summer was he wouldn't take a buyout and wouldn't accept subsequently getting waived.  His pride was in his own way.  Coming off the bench is not on the table for him, because he doesn't consider team success, but just his own desire/want/self-estimation. 

Othersowise, glad they got this place back up and running.  I thought it might be down for weeks.

Perry got rid of his contract.  No way the team could move forward with such a me-Me-ME presence. 

Perry got back some decent assets: Kanter...Mudiay...Robinson. 

Melo heading where he wanted to be.  Knicks heading where we want them to be.

Kevin Knox and Timmy Hardaway will get to be the Alpha Dawgs while Kristaps is rehabbing.  Hezonja will get an opportunity to show what he's got under the hood with consistent minutes.  Kornet gets real minutes to make a case for himself both as a back-up center and a genuine NBA stretch-4.  Mitchell Robinson has the opportunity to make a case for himself as one of our BIGS of the future.  Enes Kanter will have an opportunity to be a dominant presence at the five-spot, an offensive focus in the blocks (and, God willing, like Embid, at long-range) and to demonstrate to Coach Fizdale and GM Perry's satisfaction that he can be more than a one-trick pony (well, two tricks, with low post scoring and an elite level of rebounding) and that he can evolve into a dependable defender and rim protector.  The PG scrum of Ntilikina-Burke-Mudiay will get to battle for minutes and survival.  While pups such as Dotson and Vonleh get to make a case for themselves as rotation players. 

Baby steps. 

Onwards.

Bunch of newbies and at least one Tanking Dweeb, me for the coming season. I mean, play hard and lose hard too.

When the forum went down, did you guys get an error message mentioning “bad behavior”? I mean, I thought Chico had taken over the forum and kicked me out for “bad hombre”.  ;D

I saw something about a php command being out dated and deemphasized like the triangle offense and the GOP.

MSG replaying an early November game at the Garden where Knicks took on the Pacers. 

Occurred to me while taking it in, that both O'Quinn AND McDermott, and their back door game chemistry, are together again on the 2018-2019 Pacers.
