I was in that camp with Frank as my fallback.

DM is a beast.

Frank is going to be an excellent pro and I hope an excellent long term Knick.

6.7/1.7/0.7

Stellar.

Sealing early this year - before the season even starts - that you have no idea how to look at pro basketball

Monk's the better player.

Monk is worth at least 1.2 Fredettes.

None of them in continental North America.

His skills were noted by several collegiate and NBA players across the country. Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder posted on his Twitter account that "Jimmer Fredette is the best scorer in the world!",[86] while Steve Nash of the Phoenix Suns tweeted "Jimmer Fredette? That name's straight out of Hoosiers. No wonder he never misses."[87] Jared Sullinger, a forward at Ohio State University, said "Jimmer is going off right now. Pure scorer."[88]

Other facets of his personality were noted by other college coaches. Former Utah Utes coach Jim Boylen cited "swagger and confidence" as Fredette's biggest weapons, and Villanova's Jay Wright also remarked favorably on Fredette's on-court aggressiveness, comparing him to Pete Maravich in that respect. However, Kelli Anderson described Fredette as "fiercely competitive while remaining unassuming and likable", noting that Arizona coach Sean Miller hugged Fredette after he scored 49 on the Wildcats.[85]

----

In an article published in Sports Illustrated, Marcus Morris, a forward at Kansas, noted the work ethic and moral character Fredette exhibited while at USA Basketball camp. He said, "He's got heart. You can see he has a feel for the game, and he can shoot it from anywhere. Even if you try to box-and-one the guy, he brings it up and just pulls up from the hashmark. That's tough to guard."[39]

Uh, I'm sorry, but weren't we talking about 2019?

Legends dont lose legendary status.  THats pretty much the meaning of the word.

But in general - for this forum - sure - back to 2019 talk, as Jimmer takes his legendary play to Greece.

Is disgraced ex-Knix coach Rick Pitino still coaching Panathinaikos?
Nick Calathes their top player.

Wasn't Monk one of the few players worse on D than Knox last year?

Edit:  looks like I was thinking of Sexton.
Monk was merely 492/514 in Defensive real +/-.

Mud was 495.  Trier 489.  Datsun 471.

Hardway Jr 464.  Kanter 445.

Someone something about a legendary flash in the pan?

Ammo or Jimmer?

Our boys had a game.

Not sure I like counting on Mitch or Portis as a primary pivot.

Vince put up a classic. Wanted him over a guy like Bullock. KCP was someone else I had in the Bullock range.

Taj and Kev are nice. I see them as the best duo to bring Mitch along, so I like that as our frontcourt second unit.

Randle and Morris are a vital tandem.

I like Bobby, but he’s showing defensive instincts very similar to Kanter’s though he has much better athleticism. He needs to learn to play keeper. So does Mitch. Situational D with these big guys was tough to watch.

I’d like to see Taj Randle and Marcus with some combo of Knox, RJ, and Frank filling the other two spots.

Develop guard play and get the bigs to do more to help the guards would be our top priorities for team development. Beefing up the pivot should be our top front office priority.
