Hey Les, you now sign off with an adoring message to Stoute. What about Chico? He’s gonna be pissed 😡

He may even tell you to fuck off

Real Plus/Minus:
Knox 489/490.
Jr. Smith 481.
Lost season for both.   Maybe give both of them a 2 week stretch of starting.   See if they can figure anything out with more minutes.
lol, Miller ain't gonna do that unless somebody makes him.
The eye test hasn't deceived. These two, sadly, have been not just terrible, but stunningly terrible.

I thought Knox's shot (and confidence) seemed improved at the top of the season. That's all gone now. And when he goes to the basket, he gets the ball stripped an awful lot. For all his grace — and he can move fluidly — he doesn't seem as quick as the guys around him.

Knox was a typical Mills pick. Next in order regardless of position or need.  His lack of basketball IQ was amazing.  Knix needed shot makers not athletes.

Nice night for Barrett. He’s good when nobody is guarding him.

CUTE

Defended.

Rebounded.

Facilitated assists.

Ran the floor and scored in every way possible (except of course, jump shots).

RJ is a skilled athlete and a  comitted competitor who stood out among his contemporaries.

He has,a long way to grow, but in an organization worthy of withering sarcasm, RJ is not the Knicks' problem,  nor as per the Prophet Kiid's eternal snark, is he in play as a trade chip.

I agree wholeheartedly with both of these propositions.

So how do we turn Barrett, Frank, Knox, Payton, and Randle into players who can reliably hit an outside shot?

There are some questions even I can't answer.

I’m afraid Knox is kind of a hopeless case for the Knicks. 😩

You dont think Darius Garland is an excellent shooter?

We know you know Rui is a stud - but keep being a sad sort - its expected.

PS. I'm still a Positive Pussy, though that may change if they fire coach. Just didn't want to bother modifying the pic.

Knox was a typical Mills pick. Next in order regardless of position or need.  His lack of basketball IQ was amazing.  Knix needed shot makers not athletes.

Well, we certainly needed an SF.   I thought Knix went bold taking the 19 year old freshman,  instead of one of the older more polished Bridges.  I hoped they knew what they were doing.   

The guy we missed on was Shai who was getting buzz and moving up draft boards late. Don't know how much we considered him.

Knox was a high risk/high reward pick.   You can see by his physique and motivation why they went for him.   However his motor isn't great,  his BBIQ not there, and his confidence comes and goes.  I was surprised Knix didn't play it safe,  but kinda liked the riskier higher upside pick.

He's trying to develop the 3 as his first solid NBA skill, which could open up more driving and cutting.

I think we gave Knox too many minutes last year.   And too little this year,  partly the roster crunch at F,  but also Miller needing to win to try to keep his job.  And yes, also Knox's lack of doing good things on a basketball court.

The problem is then we drafted another no outside shot,  poor defender in RJB.  One of those two drafts we needed to hit on a 3&D wing.

Hunter looked pretty good at least against us.

Knox and Barnett duplicate each other's weakness. Also,  likely play the same position,  until Knox fills out and becomes more of a PF.
