Remember when all y'all were acting like Knox was the next Kobe after his first SL?

I do because it was too easy to suggest it was premature, but of course was castigated as if I wrote for the Daily News.

We're so lost and corporate you can see hope die every waking moment.

Last game Knicks took a time out with a minute left in a close game and threw the ball to the opposition. It was a vintage Fizdale moment in a season full of them.

This game nothing like that occurred because we managed to keep the game out of reach by the two-minute mark.

I did think Knicks moved the ball around pretty well today. And I thought Smith Jr. played quite well.

But we still need a starting guard who can consistently play like a starting guard. I know Lester disagrees, but he apparently has access to drugs that I do not.

McLemore had 24 on 14 shots (with no FT's).  6-11 on 3's.  Also 13 Boards.

Nice to see him salvaging a career, which was very much on the ropes. good kid.

Well, not me personally, was always pretty skeptical of the pick, but good call — though he gave us decent, pretty engaged minutes tonight. It's gonna take awhile, but the tortoise like trajectory is definitely still upwards.

I do really remember 1000 posts about a certain Turk having no place in the NBA. Nice meaningful minutes on a top four team in the East tonight, after extraordinary performances with top four team in the West last spring. Terrible call.

You see Kemba or Ja needing a uni, give him a Knick jersey, for sure. In the meantime, happy with Smith until the last six minutes tonight (beginning with that pass to the bench) though would surely have loved Frankie around to better contest two Jaylen drives and another by Kemba in the end game, but we got what we got and they're young, and I'll watch 'em and more often than not, for their relative stages of their careers, can see some goodness. Years 3 and 4 are generally bloom time for non-walk-into-the-NBA-as-superstar-type PGs. Let two flowers bloom.


*** No Morris really left the door open for more pointguarding tonight. In general, wouldn't terribly mind one of our neo-Bo's hitting the exits at trade time as they are kind of redundant as a pair on the floor.

Watch the bad habits set in.  Mitchell Robinson regressing before our eyes with his propensity to foul.

Feel bad for RJ.   Glad we have a couple of pros in the locker room for him to lean on during these times.

Well if we don't get a win soon, that will be a problem. In general, however, the habits are getting better. Won't continue forever.

4-16 and falling fast...tied for worst record in the NBA.

I still think Fiz is toast 15 games under .500

Mills cannot be made to have his Plan B look this bad --- even though this is the result of incompetent decisions by an utterly useless piece of shit.

Mismanagement
« Reply #9023 on: December 01, 2019, 07:56:21 PM »

Knox, Mitch, Zo all have seen their roles shrink. 

After they were "developed" all last year.

In favor of vets who don't win...

As Previously Stated, Free Run THRU Slop is NOT DEVELOPMENT
« Reply #9024 on: December 01, 2019, 08:13:47 PM »

Knox appears to be developing. The only limit on Mitch's role is his ability to stay on court. I expect Trier has been told what he needs to do...

We may win on the 11th or the 17th if we're lucky.

If we win both (and no others), we would still be on track to finish worse than your lowest of the low-balls prediction. Ooooppaa.....

Just need to look at first two possessions after timeout at 95-95.

5 minute game, even up

The personnel Coach decided on sucked

The play call sucked - and then was repeated second possession (Dotson handling)

Fiz points to that same point - and the 4 straight turnovers.  But why doesn't Smith have the ball?  Did DENNIS say, "no - you handle it, Dame"?

Ball moved well with Dennis - but he was freaking spent.  Have to have a 3rd pg on the active roster.

Post game - Fizdale actually said, "we did a good job defending the three - they had only made TEN going into the fourth quarter."

Goooooooood Lord.

Fiz didnt even have any info on Frank's injury when he stood for the press

Whaaaaaaaaaaaat?

Get this clown the fuck outa town.
