Im good Rolling with Elfrid, Kadeem, and Frank and seeing what coach Miller can get from them.

If we do make a move it should be small for big. We always leave one or two guards on the bench and we always use all of our available bigs.

Today's Knicks hypothetical -

What if we had kept Hardaway out of the KP deal?

Well, Shroder is certainly available.
OKC has Shai-guy, their PG of the future.  CP3 and Shroder.
Right now Shai leads the Thunders in scoring (almost 19 per) which i didn't realize.
Shai, CP3 and Shroder are 3 of their top 4 scorers.
I doubt any team has ever had 3 PG's among their Top 4 scorers before.


Alexander doesnt often man the point - and may be a 2 long term.  Gets 3 assists per, same as Steven Adams

Together the threesome play 96 minutes per game

Precludes drafting RJ and developing Dotson moving forward. 

Who has more upside? 

What if we had signed Kyrie with Timmy's cap space + Lee's? 

What if not really applicable. 

Timmy is playing really well in Dallas, where he is not expected to be the bell cow as he was in NY, likewise KP, because of Doncic's dominance and leadership. 

So really, apples and oranges.

I still think Barrett is a 3. 

Likely we'd have not signed Morris if we had THJ.  I was just asking, off the strong Tim performance today.

Dont care about Dotson.   Or your boy Trier.

Don't wake up Bo...

Hardaway disappeared late in OT (I'll save Bo the time)

Real good game.  Liking MIA a lot.

Miami is really impressive.  Have developed some nice pups, like the Raptors. 

If ever there were a Pat Riley player, it is Jimmy Butler. 

You might be right about RJ as a 3. 

But you are seriously undervaluing Dotson.  He is a worker bee with a legit trey and defensive tenacity, which no one ever accused Timmy of. 

As per your Trier hard on, well...duly noted, but I think there is something to build on there. 

We shall see.  I suspect Coach Miller will give AT a long look, and that he is not as married to Ellington as Fizz was.  Hell, Trier could prove an enticing trading chip to the right team. 

I really want to see Kadeem Allen get some burn.  Let Frank and Dennis battle it out with him.  Older player, but still, his game is closer to that of Payton than that of Frank Farter or Dennis Without Menace.  We shall see.  The defense in the fourth quarter, and the bench play, offered a small glimmer of light.

Depends on your definition of tenacity

But regardless - no - I don't really see Paul George in Dotson.

People keep undervaluing DD and writing him off, and no matter how many times he has been buried on the bench or out of the rotation or recovering from injury, when he gets his opportunities, HE IS READY. 

Paul George?  Heh. 

But a worker bee with considerable character.  And as for tenacity?  All of those DNPs and he still comes back to play when he sees daylight. 

That's how I define tenacity.

Close to 6 minutes without a basket to close out the 4th quarter.

Ah, me....

Splitting 48 minutes down the middle.

Combined 23-12-16

I really thought wed get shellacked. We didnt match their defensive intensity with intensity off the ball to get guys free late in the game. Until we do that, its going to be tough to score in those situations.

I found this effort, as ultimately disappointing as it was, as impressive as the work in the two wins.

Tough loss but, for the most part, a much improved team.

Lower fouls

hitting FTs

fewer turnovers

And Miller has what?  Two or three practices under his belt?
