Give D'antmanbee credit for taking Bzdelik on as a defensive guru, covering for Dant's weakness.

Nice piece on Bzdelik, including how Knicks lost him (dammit, Riley) and ties to NBA legend Wes Unseld

https://sports.vice.com/en_us/article/bjpbd8/meet-the-defensive-genius-behind-the-rockets-championship-push-jeff-bzdelik-harden

404 Error Message. 

Bzdelik. 

You win some.  You lose some. 

Anyone still lamenting how we didn't get Tom Thumb Thibs?

A good piece.
The odd thing is the article loads for me, then goes to a 404 Error message.
So I just had to stop the loading process and then was able to read it.

I didn't realize Scott Layden was GM of Minnesota.

They are gonna F'up Towns/Butler FOR SURE!

Maybe we can get JB for season opener.

HYPOTHETICAL Fantasy trade

Would you trade #1 picks for Butler.  (And whatever salary is needed: THjr or Noah if they prefer)

Pro:

With Butler in trade, you only need to open up one more max salary
Makes it more likely you get Irving.

Cons:

Would take at least 2 #1 picks.

A wonderful player.  For sure.

But once again, I am forced to upchuck at the suggestion that we trade #1 picks. 

NONONONONO

No. 

And Scott Perry agrees with me, thank goodness, as he rejects the idea of trading our most valuable assets for players who we might be able to get in free agency without gutting our team. 

Melo and Marbury anyone? 

Hell, EDDY CURRY for fuck's sake. 

As for free agency, we will have plenty of free agents of our own come the spring/summer of 2019. 

Based on how our "busts" and "bust-outs" do, we will have some serious decisions to make about talent, and the decision making process will be very revealing of how this team proceeds going forward. 

That is to say, do we gut our own squad of our own free agents in order to create MAXIMUM SPACE, or TWO MAXIMUM SPACES. 

My own vote would be no, but it is too early to make any such determinations. 

On September 24 everyone, players, management, coaches, go ON THE CLOCK. 

WHO WANTS TO BE A KNICK.

WHO WANTS TO REMAIN A KNICK. 

PS: But Chip, are you saying that under no circumstances would you trade any of our #1 picks?  YES, that is exactly what I am saying.  No short cuts.  No instant gratification.  THAT IS WHAT I AM SAYING.

I will hold off on everything and take the shot at KD - thanks.

Kid, if you were doing the picking any pick would be worthless, but you thankfully make none of those decisions.

Jimmy on the cheaps or not at all. No trading picks!

Laydumb is respected in so much as you are confusing ridicule for respect.

Yeah, I was wrong.
After the Knix, I said Layden wouldn't get another GM job.
Though it's still Thibs as PoB Op calling the shots, right?

The GM title isn't what it used to be ...

The NBA exists outside of your tiny bubble.
