We let Kyle O'Quinn go and Perry drafted him.  He's not gonna think twice about shedding Kanter's cap hold next summer.

If Kanter is on the roster 365 days from now something really went haywire with our rebuild.

He was unusually aggressive in Summer League.  I guess the reason is because the Knicks told him to showcase himself for another team.

What we lose in talent we gain in good will.


Did not see that coming.  

And Kam, I pondered your Noah & Lee for Whiteside deal, and decided it is pointless and counter-productive.  

YOU, as someone who is not a Kanter fan, and who wishes to faze him does it help us to have both Kanter AND Whiteside being fazed out simultaneously.  

How does it help us to have two unhappy starting centers not getting starting center minutes (Whiteside's issue in Miami)?  

How does it help us to have a highly paid malcontent on the bench, leeching minutes from both Kanter AND Robinson?  

Okay, I don't believe our team's plan is to faze out Kanter, but rather to give him an opportunity to make a case for himself. long term.  If not, we move on.  

Whiteside would impede that journey, first and foremost.  

Second, he's an unhappy camper playing for the Heat and making $24 million this year and 27 million next year?  WAKE UP CALL, KAM.  You want THAT poisoning the locker room?  You who spoke out against Beasley based on him having a bad influence on Knox.  

And, oh, if it doesn't work out, let's just stretch him?  More folly.  

#1  It wasnt my trade.  It was kIDcaters trade.  

#2 If you're all for "rolling the dice on mudiay" which you were... why not see if Whiteside can reshape his game?

#3 Noah and Lee need to go before we trade them for Zach Lavine and Doug McDermott.

(kidding on that last one, kinda)

The Whiteside deal is not real
But if it was, Kanter plays the 4

"My people came to me...they said they think it's Russia. I have President Putin. He just said it's not Russia. I will say this, I don't see any reason why it would be."

That's how a press conference sounds when an Asset stands next to his Handler.

Sure, Trump has everything under control.

That was sarcasm, Mr. Ward, in case you could not tell.

Knicks WAIVE Troy Williams

This bums me out. He came to a dysfunctional team. Did everything the right way. Said the right things. Played unselfishly and became a consistent scorer.

Yeah, I figured that's the kind of guy you want to keep.

Troy was at least as effective for us as Mario was for Orlando.

In addition to being cheaper, we’d have had more control of the situation next year since Williams would have completed two years of service to Mario’s one.

If I read that Williams is going in to surgery and will miss a good portion of the year, this move will make some sense.

Williams + Mario + Knox I liked.

I think we’re back to being kicked around at the wings.

Chip, I believe the KP injury gives us an inactive roster spot to shuttle our 2 ways. With a long term injured player, we don’t need to have a spot open for that.
