Burkesanity. Why could they not hide him until next year?

Cause they’re STOOPID.

Hey genius, they had to hold Trey out of the G-League Showcase Game to keep him from getting snapped up.  The Knicks nurtured Trey, and he was tearing things up at Westchester.

So the jig was very much up.  

Keep your day job.

the priest asks for a beer and is given a tall frosty

the rabbi asks for a glass of Manischevitz and is promply served

and then the bartender asks , so what will it be sport?

And Jimmer asks for a shot.

And the bartender says, sorry kid, you had your shot.


I'll be here for 3 minutes

No way Mo Bamba falls to 9th. If we want him we need to climb the lottery standings. He's from the Bronx, I believe. Before the KP injury he was the player I was hoping we'd get...not because he was the best in draft so much as he's from around the way, he could have gone to Harvard, he attended the Sloan analytics conference as a high school student out of interest and then started to teach himself to shoot 3s. And he's as long as Gobert.

Chip - what is Mudiay's Euro connection? He's a Congolese refugee to Texas who skipped college to play in China because his family needed money.

(Takes a cold heart not to hope he succeeds)


An overseas connection.

Knicks purportedly pursuing Pablo Prigioni as a coach to mentor Mudiay, Ntilkina and Burke. 

Nets showing interest as well. 

Would love to see Prigioni involved with the Knicks pups.  Even though he was well past his prime as a Knick, he was such a wily veteran, played such a heady game and was a very effective defender (used to enjoy how many times he was able to purloin the in-bounds pass). 

The Euro-Connection doesn't hurt either, in so far as Ntilikina and Mudiay (not to mention Porzinigs) have roots in that game.

Guess who's in street clothes for Charlotte?

Would Charlotte do Monk for Ntilikina?

Fuck you thrice, numb nutz.

DeBusschere, surely.

I will defer to Chip for worst contract, but as many bad deals as there have been, Eddy Curry costing us LaMarcus Aldridge and Jo Noah tops the list of those I can easily recall.

Rod Strickland For The Earthly Remains Of Mo Cheeks.

Nene and Camby for McDyess.

Hard to beat the Eddy Curry trade though. 

Didn't the Starbury deal cost us Gordan Hayward eventually? Or was that the Melo deal?

Utah drafted Hayward with one of the #1 picks we gave up to Marbury.  They got it from Phoenix as the sweetener for absorbing Tom Chambers bloated contract.

Chip's a jerkoff

I liked Cheeks as a Knick.

50% FG, 4-1 assists/turnovers....

Thank you...

And Kiid is a specious douche.  

Cheeks played all of two seasons, sperm breath, while Strickland went on to play at a very high level for another, what EIGHTEEN FUCKING SEASONS?

Yep...quite a haul, eh?  

Know what I love about you, Prophet, your complete absence of shame, and how impervious you are to FACTS.  

PS: Why stop here.  Explain to us all again what agreat deal the McDyess Trade was...go ahead, you know you're dying to.

Someone please slap Chip, remind him that the pick he always cries over that could have been used on Tony Parker (had we not dealt it) was actually ACQUIRED in the Pat Ewing deal.

As you were, all.

We're been down this road before. 

Do you recall the earthbound PF/C we traded that pick for?  The legendary Othella Harrington.  And Tony Parker is still in the league.

Genius Checketts and Layden cashed in all of our #1 picks on garbage. 

Let's see....Vin Baker....Glenn Rice...Luc Longley....Travis Knight, and two #1 picks as I recall.  WHAT A HAUL.

Addendum: as I recall Scotty dropped Knight and his 4.5 million contract, which could've been used when Rasheed Wallace came on to the market. 

To be a Knicks fan is to suffer.

Rodman and Salley were both drafted by the Pistons, their mode of acquistion was not really comparable to Starks and Mason, who were both acquired by the Knicks after they played with and were released by other teams.

How did you guys feel about the Ewing trade? Details remain murky but I always felt that that trade led the Knicks to what seemed like a lot of bad contracts and salary cap hell for years.

Correct you are.  There was no reason to make a trade when we could have simply let him play out the final year of his contract.  I'll never forget the fucking New York POST: GOOD RIDDANCE.  Scum bags. 

Dave Checketts...SCUM BAG.  And yes rather than simply letting the contract expire, and using the cap space strategically, we got a lot of shitty players and crappy contracts.  Patrick's agent David Falk has to shoulder some blame, but it was Checketts, who has historically gotten a free ride, and who fucked up the trade by leaking it to Lupica, which queered out return. 

Checketts also is famous for forcing Messier to walk.  "How long do we have to pay for the Stanley Cup?"

The correct answer being, until hell freezes over, you ignorant white bread cocksucker.

Scouting report from a year ago (Feb 2017)

"From the top of the key, Mudiay ranks as the 5th most efficient one-on-one player in the league."

"ISO Facilitation for Teammates – When taking his man off of the dribble, Mudiay does a superb job of finding teammates. So far this season, he is the second best player in the league (99th percentile), in finding teammates for scoring opportunities when going one-on-one."

Have at it

True dat. 

Interesting quote from Jared Jeffries who explains that Mudiay is not a bad shooter, but a subpar finisher.  Thinks there is room for growth here. 

Also Knicks fans, it might be interesting to have Mudiay being the facilitator and have Frankie play off the ball.  Frank is nothing if not a terrific defender.  His PG skills will develop over time. 

But yes, Horny, time for our three pups to get minutes.  Jack's future is not as our PG, but as a coach.

clearly you made a steal at draft time with the Sixer deal.  

they are freaking out about Fultz.

you get the lakers pick and they are winning.  so expect a low lottery pick.

they sit at 10 with hornets.  i expect them to rise once Ball and Thomas start playing together.

NY has a real shot at a top 7 pick.  very important draft for NY.  not so much for boston.  you are loaded and that is without your injured all-star.

Lakers are clearing 70 million in space and clearly want lebron and george to join in and lead the team

it's very possible that could happen.  i don't see Houston having the cap space and if not the lakers then perhaps he stays in Cleveland for  another year.

cavs did a great job at the deadline and lebron sounds interested again.

Ah me. 

Two locks, right.  Just like how the Cavs were going to rollerskate into the finals, eh Karnak?

George is staying in OKC. 

And LeBron is not coming to the Lakers. 
15  Sports / Basketball / Re: Knicks on: February 08, 2018, 08:44:11 PM
Jack get 13 minutes and frank gets 7.

just saying.

is Timmy really 1 for his last 24 from 3.

he is better than that.  right? 

Timmy and Courtney are 3-14 (0-7 from three) in the first half.  

What is going inside Timmy's head?  When he came back from IR he was playing confident, aggressive ball.
