Quote
If we can turn him into a less head casey Lance Stevenson, then we’ve hit a home run.

I was also thinking of a Lance comparison, mostly due to his build.  But Lance always had hoops talent, just a questionable head.
Muddy is trying to develop hoops/NBA skills.
He can run the court.  Has cut down on turnovers.
Has improved his shooting from awful to eh.
I've said he's in danger of dropping out of the league.
He's not a PG, and can't shoot for an SG.  And doesn't focus well on D.

With all that said, it's a fine roll of the dice for NYK.
Muddy is very young, strong, been around the league a few years.
Let's see if he can be developed into at least a solid rotation player.
Get some assistant coaches working on his flaws.

Elfrid is pretty awful and glad we didn't get him.  Though I guess if it was clear Franc is our starter and Elfrid our backup PG, that'd be fine for a 2nd rounder.

Anywayso:
- dislike the Sell Low on Willy (por nada)
- like the gamble on a still very young Muddy.
- would have liked to flip a vet (Courtly / Jack / KO; with a willingness to toss in Willy) for some yute, but the market didn't seem great.
I would have done Courtly and Jack for Crowder (I think), but Cavs wanted to get younger and fresher-legged).

OKC-LAL game
Rustbrook & Melo out with minor injuries (Roberson done for the year)
Ball out; Clarkson & Nance goners for Lakes.
So both teams going deep into the bench on 2nd units.
Caruso and Zabac!

Surprised OKC didn't try to snag an SG, or they couldn't find something that worked.

Guess it's time to stop looking at Conference standings, and switch to league listings.

We're around 4 to 5 games ahead of the 8 teams below us.

Snakebit?
Knix usually have poor management and make bad decisions.
Self-inflicted wounds like Noah.
At least Knix have been drafting well recently.


Bernard was a bad and badly timed injury.  but that's a long time ago.
McDice got injured but h was a well-known gimp when we got him.
Same with Amare.

Knix usually make their own bad luck.
When we had Riley and then JVG things went pretty well.
Since . . .

At one point in the 4th, Knicks had a 19 year old and three G Leaguers out there. No wonder Raps romped by 30.

Knix were close up to midway through the 3Q.
I thought that was pretty good.

Not sure either Lowry or Derozan had bothered to break a sweat though.

Good article from Ian Begley

http://www.espn.com/blog/new-york/knicks/post/_/id/66989/knicks-forced-to-take-long-view-after-kristaps-porzingis-injury-66989

As far as Mudiay, only thing that occurred to me is perhaps Frankie wasn't high on Mills list - after all, Frankie is a Phil Jackass' move. Phil himself in the press conference did say it was a pick that "the staff had to think and argue about".

Or that simply that Ntilikina is not a sure thing and the price of the Mudiay réclamation attempt was favourable.

On a team with this little talent, not every acquisition should be read as a vote against an incumbent. Even more so as the L moves towards less rigidly defined positions.

Especially with Hornacek, who would surely love to have another Bledsoe/Dragic type situation ... but there, adding one too many to the pot ultimately helped spoil the stew ... and then they completely forgot what they were cooking.

good int Biz.  The team is still totally unbalanced but not that it matters. Two good sized guards who can't shoot and once small guard who can shoot plus THJ.  My issue now is playing Jack - what is the point of that?  Let the kids play and let Jack mentor.

I love frank and loved McDermott as the solid rotation player that bo says mudiay might turn into

Bring back Doug!!
