I notice you donít cite his 3pt shooting stats. Why might that be?



Because he inconsequentially took less than 1 a game

DRose didn't really facilitate the offense.  He just went for his.  He was good at that. But we have another guy to give us the ISO ball now in Trier.  Much less expensive and less of an ego.  Won't leave the team for mysterious reasons.  I assume.

D-Rose
« Reply #1143 on: October 15, 2018, 01:55:58 PM »

I really liked Rose, but he was a frustrating figure. 

The lack of three-point range was not a deal breaker.

But his lack of facilitation, particularly given how he could seemingly get to the rack at will, was confounding. 

And between D and Melo, we got into too much 1-On-4 with everyone else standing around watching. 

Additionally, while I was enthusiastic about the trade at the time (sound familiar?), I came to regret the loss of Robin Lopez, a positive force on and off the court, particularly in light of the bottomless depths of disappointment to be experienced with the earthly remains of Noah. 

Curious about the odd relationships between some of our coaches and players on the bubble. 

I remember Lenny Wilkens did not want to play Dikembe Mutumbo...felt he was a step slow, which he was, but still a defensive force who went on to be a positive role player off the bench for the Houston Rockets upon leaving the Knicks. 

Then there was the odd communication breakdown between D'Antoni and Marbury.

And Hornacek's inexplicable yanking of Noah at Gar-BAHGE Time. 

Fizdale seems more conscious of building up everyone's confidence, without pulling his punches, and generally less inclined to embarrass his players.

Re:  RoLO

Heard a great interview on NBA Radio with the Bulls GM

Lets just say that YEAH, Lopez is a valued presence in his 11th (or is it 12th) year.

Also some nice analysis of how Hoiberg had to coach guys that werent really his when he first arrived - and now can tailor the team more to his system

I'd say a bit of an East sleeper - sure, those Bulls.  Wide open for 5th slot on.

Just revisiting some draft classes on Basketball-Reference.com

My God, did Isaiah REALLY draft Renaldo Blackman ahead of both Rajon Rondo AND Kyle Lowry? 

To be a Knicks fan is to suffer.

heh

Balkman.

He was a FREAK athlete, remember?

Looking for basketball players wasn't our strength.

(What skills did Sweetney possess?, remind me.  Passer?  Multpiple space board guy? Shot blocker?  Cerebral?  Warrior?  No?   heh)

Ask Scott Layden.

At the time he exulted about his Georgetown connection. 

Dick Vitale was deeply offended.  Contended that Scott should have taken Nick Collison.

Poor draft after the first 5 or 6

I remember many wanted Pietrus.

True.

HOWEVER...

The smart play was to keep Noah on board. If he didn't play nice, banish him; it's a rebuilding year, you can live with the lost roster spot.

But the stretch I'm not a fan of, as I think the Knicks better chance in free agency is in 2020, not 2019. This front office has done mostly good stuff - Fiz, restraint in the Butler situation, Knox/Robinson/Trier. But there's still that myopia - signing Baker and Hardaway to contracts that may not have hurt on day 1 but were ill-advised nonetheless, and now the failure to think sufficiently long-term with the Noah stretch.

I would've kept McDermott

Not at his current contract, not for this team and the free agency aspirations the FO has.
