Folks like Bo will come back with "well, then he's overpaid", but so what?

It's a problem if it means they have to fill out their bench with min salary guys like this year.   

The huge contracts for Scurry & Klay have limited their flexibility and distorted their roster.   Wiggy's loot compounds that.

True

Warriors have been able to go way over the cap using Durant in sign and trade for Russell's dollars - then staying way, way over using Russell's dollars for Wiggins

To get a small amount dollars to spend over the summer they could have dealt DAngelo for expirings but I dont think that was as good an avenue to take for a team looking to get another ring out of Curry's 32 and 33 aged seasons.

Knicks-Lakers newes (that we turned down Green/Kuzma) runs contrary to everything that has been reported out of LA.  Much more believable that Lakers wanted to keep team as intact as possible during the Kobe mourning period - and Kuzma was removed from talks with Knicks altogeher.  (I was skeptical if LBJ would have allowed them to deal Green)

Re:  Detroit

They decided not to deal Rose for scraps - and held onto Kennard.  I am OK with those 2 moves - and getting out from under Drummond

For future - looks like its build through draft and free agency. 

Can they deal Griffin next year, save his '21-'22 salary?  Dembouya the only playersigned past that

Next year's team starts with the three guards - Kennard, Rose and Svi - one wing - Snell - and Griffin.  What do they offer Wood and Maker, for starters?  And who will play there?

Draft note - Jaden McDaniels or Cole Anthony fit real well there, currently picking seventh.

I can understand trading Bulldog Drummond.  But trading him for only a 2nd rounder is embarrassing.

The yahoosports writer Rohrbach ripped into them for that.

When the option was paying him 29 mil next year they took the better road

Also get looks at a couple of guys for 30 games.

Re-sign Henson?  Sure - why not?

Question
« Reply #11030 on: February 09, 2020, 04:38:40 PM »

Are we really 5 games out of the 8th seed?

Have we really matched last season's win total?

Is Moe Harkless going to get an honest audition for BoD's 3&D wet dream going forward into 2020-2021?

Doesn't Mike Miller have any native instincts for the art of the Extended Tank?

I mean....DEFENSE?  OUR KNICKS?

Que es esta?

Are Rose of the Dolan Grande & World Wide Mess really going to honor Miller's exemplary work by giving the coaching chair to the next available shiny abject?

Hello...I mean, who was expecting unheralded Jeff Can Guns to put such a positive imprint on the team when he took over for failed shiny abject,  Don Nelson, or Red Holzman for Dick McGuire?

Much as the prevailing wisdom holds that we draft shiny object BALL 2.0, when Elfrid Peyton, despite his jump shot trajectory, is making a compelling case for his leadership going forward, helping to resurrect a defensive culture, and promulgting an authentic sense of ball movement and coherence?

Verily, a Positive Pussy's lot is not a happy one?

TO BE A KNICKS FAN IS TO SUFFER.

PS: Kudos to Coach Miller, taking on a thankless task, deflecting attention away from himself, building confidence and camaraderie and chemistry amongst Mills's FA grab-bag of earthly delights, and otherwise maintaining positivity midst a shit storm of discontent.

PPS: FUCK MARK JACKSON.

Eso qué es?
U welcome 🙏🏼

Other than that, ditto ALL of your post.
(except the notion that VanGrumpy was a decent coach and Nelson a bad one, but that’s in the past)

FUCK MARK JACKSON

Good for them, and best of luck to him!

We got the better coach.

The old generals loved Fizz.

Ever hear that old expression about being too smart by half?

Or you can't always get what you want?  But if you try real hard, you might get what you need? 

Consider this.

Allan Houston has quietly done a nice job with Westchester.

Mike Miller was his call. 

Somehow,  AH has kept his head, kept his powder dry, maintaining a presence through successive administrations, while not getting plastered in MSG Fecal Matter and keeping Dolan's ear with his consul.

Remains to be seen what Dolan has learned from his pursuit of shiny abjects.

Perhaps I overstate my disdainful attitude towards Mark Jackson. 

His foul ups in GS were not a matter of hoops so much as...HUBRIS. 

He was not a team player. 

That is good AND bad.

What I like about Miller is sense of calm, a purposeful approach, and HE DOES NOT DRAW ATTENTION TO HIMSELF. 

We need steady foundational pieces going forward. 

Holzman was, like Miller, an obscure lifer. 

Anyway, unlike Fisher, Rambis, Hornacek, who were ALL Jackson's I bitches, Miller is not so much beholden to Mills or Perry or even Houston....but to THE TEAM.

Color me impressed. 

PS: Continuity would be nice.  Eh?

Or does Randle seem more comfortable and efficient with Morris off the reservation?

Payton, Ellington, Bullock, Randle, Robinson

got us 8 point OT lead

Payton cant stop Young and we dont take foul to give

Poorly coached end of OT

Lob to Mitch would have been nice
