Why? Enes isn't in any kind of late-period "mentor the youth" stage.
He's entering his prime and is not the retiring type.
Things will get ugly fast unless Fiz starts playing to win.

suck yuh madda you butt-clot

I'm just saying you're going to have your heart broke when we let him go.

Celebrate him. A two-season Knick at most.  Why would he come back here after we let him go?

Also, no matter what stats he puts up there is simply no way to get any value for him. We might as well enjoy him while he’s here.

I enjoy enes when he isn't pouting over not starting.  He's young and enjoying life.   I envy him.

That's cause apparently you're stupid as fuck and have neither talent nor ambition.
If you are a skilled competitive athlete you want to play and to win.
We should trade or cut Enes before it blows up. Current situation serves nobody.

Enes likely gonna be gone. He wants to play and win games. Fiz's priority isn't the latter.

On track for 22 wins. I forget, who's got 22?

Laughing at the yahoos this morning re:  D'Aaron Fox

Let the players simmer, folks - before crucifying them (see Hardaway, Tim Jr)

Yup. Particularly point guards. Need cooking. By the way, that "breakout game" was Fox's 69th career start. So let's stop f'ing around with our own guy....

The "kids" came back in for last six minutes.  We were down EIGHT and lost by TWENTY EIGHT

Oh come on.....the game was done. Knick lead gone. Warriors in full charge mode. Maybe he was playing to other priorities, but clearly Fiz f'd up from any game management standpoint.  This really ain't rocket science sometimes.

It was tricky deciding when to sit Burke and bring Franc back in.  Both played well.  I was thinking maybe pair them for a couple minutes before shuffling Burke out. 

To me, that wasn't so tricky — especially considering the woeful defensive abilities of the other players on the floor. In his first PG start (it really took this long?) Frank had 17 points in 20 minutes, and was, as always, doing his thing at the other end against the finest offensive squad in the land. Then coach sat him for a full quarter's worth of game time.

From a win-the-game standpoint, bewildering, but that's not so important —yet. Fiz is juggling his priorities and doesn't seem a stupid fellow.

Anyway, this is certainly turning into Kam's dream season. 7% in, and we are currently looking at the #3 pick in the draft with lots of Mitchell Robinson floor-time on tap.

What happened? Lol, Fiz left Burke, Trier, Kanter, & Hezonja, then Tim to try and hold off the Warriors 4th quarter charge**

**...what was I saying about coaches? Not a hundred percent sold yet here.

Nice starting lineup. Fun to watch the first three quarters.
Coach killed it by leaving that start of the fourth crew in way too long.
But he's learning. And the Warriors would have woken up anyway.
I don't think there's any question left about what we should be doing at point guard. Basically what Kam said about a year ago.
Hardaway? Same as he ever was. Would ditch the contract if I could, but not gonna cry about it.
Very skilled kid. Muffins between the ears.

You are 100% correct.

And I am enjoying our season and am in no way disappointed in our coach.

The offensive vision is still really unclear, however. At some point we should be starting to understand even though it can't fully unfold until next year's roster is assembled.

But will be impossible to justify the choice unless it's pretty kick-ass when it finally does.

Given that the aforementioned two guys were free and clear, and our guy hadn't actually achieved a whole lot outside of really pissing off Marc Gasol.

yeah that's a good descriptor.
So far under Fiz folks are excited and active, but it's usually that way early when everybody is playing and slots are up for grabs.
Still haven't seen anything that convinces me we shouldn't have furiously gone after Budenholzer or Casey (who are currently 8-0).
Not criticizing, yet, just saying.

So was Tim mostly on Middleton?

Middleton embarrassed most of the Knick lineup at one point or another ...

Not saying I dont like him but we had similar efforts under the last regime.

A bit scattered with the lineups.

And the regime before that...let's see what we look like round the 40 game mark.

Hardaway's team

Porzingis has to mix back in.

That one might actually top "watch Mudiay continue to blossom."  )

I LOVE David Fizdale. 

I'm taking a liking to him myself!

PPS: I am quite keen to see how Fizz plugs Mudiay in there.

I am somewhat less so ....
