Then you gotta start a PG who can defend.

Payton, DSJ
Trier, Barrett
Knox, Iggy
Randle, Portis, Gibson
Mitch, Portis


I don't know why we signed the other guys.  Or why we haven't traded Frank yet.   Injury insurance i guess.   One of Bullock/Ellington won't play.    They'll be in the honorary Courtney Lee role.

Welcome back Chip for what we hope will be the beginning of Fizdale’s virtuoso year.

In tune with what you have been posting.

Y'all rating Denver too high.   The West got better.   They won't take anyone by surprise.   They're young.

They will have a hard time repeating wins vs the LA teams this year.

Houston is still Houston.   They may start slow again, but they figure it out.  Winning is in their DNA.  Top 3 team.

LeBron is switching to a new position (PG) and has AD and Boogie and Kuzma and Danny Green to feed.  Top 3 team.

Golden State and the Clippers will vie for the other Top 3 team status.  Golden State still has talent.  Know how to win. Won't fall to 7/8.

I just don't see the Lakers being a great regular season team. Too much change, too much rest needed, too many ill-fitting pieces.

Denver has continuity, coaching, and incredible depth. I'll take the Lakers over them in a playoff series, but the Nuggets have the look of a #1 or #2 seed.

Houston is going to trade Iman Shumpert for Iguodala and I can see them as the #1 seed if health co-operates.

Draymond Green and Giannis Attentionkmartshoppers
« Reply #7000 on: July 09, 2019, 01:57:28 AM »

Do we get Draymond Green to go with Randle and Mitch?
Either next summer when he is an unrestricted Free Agent or at the next trade deadline?
We could trade for him this season or next summer sign and trade for him with Portis and some of our many 8mil contracts.
Or just sign him outright to a max and give the DUBS nothing.  Do they even want anything of ours?

The downside of his career looms at age 30 when we would be getting him, but we would be interesting/relevant.
Dray could then recruit Giannis the following summer!  NYC has Greeks and Nigerians the theory goes.  Perfect for Mr A.
We would have to renounce Randle or pick up his option to trade him for a signed&traded Giannis
like how D'angelo got to the Warriors.
A pipe-dream maybe... but that duo would rival anyone in Brooklyn or LA. 
Would really depend on what assets we manage to hold onto.
Maybe get a veteran PG like an aging Kyle Lowry to take a mid-level deal

July 2021:

Mitch
Giannis/Iggy
Draymond/Knox
RJ
Lowry

OK.... so maybe the West breaks down something like this


Top 2 teams:

Hou/Den

Next two teams:


LAC/LAL

Next 4 teams:

Some combo of Utah, Portland, San Ant, Warriors

5. ?
6. ?
7. ?
8. ?

We seem to have signed everyone but Bullock.

If I told you the Knicks make the playoffs next year without making a trade, what would you have assumed had happened?

- 8th seed only required <40 wins
- Randle put up last year's numbers, maybe with a touch more efficiency from range
- Mitch led the league blocked shots/altered, and played well enough otherwise to justify starter minutes
- Bullock shot 40% from range while taking on the main defensive perimeter assignment every night
- RJ is at worst second in ROY voting, shot better than 40%, wasn't a typical 19-year-old disaster on D
- Portis accepted his role as a bench scoring machine
and most of all
- DSJ made a DeAaron Fox type leap and was in the mix for MIP, and one of Knox/Trier/Ntilikina joined him in the MIP conversation

I think none of those are individually infeasible, but it would take luck beyond what I've ever seen in a Knicks team for all those things to happen. If even two of the Mitch/RJ/DSJ scenarios happen, I'll consider the season an unqualified success.
