A happy team
« Reply #1260 on: October 18, 2018, 04:17:18 PM »

As impressive as the Knicks’ season-opening rampage was, they were facing a Hawks club with a chance of posting the NBA’s worst record. Trying to rid them of any sense of complacency, Fizdale showed film Thursday of only mistakes.

A happy team is a soft team,” Fizdale said. “I told them, ‘What did you do? You didn’t do anything. We took care of home.’ We got into the film and watched a lot of mistakes we made. And guys were great in the film session, correcting each other. We didn’t watch anything that was positive.

Sounds like Fizz is trying to get them mean and hungry for the Nyets - Celtics back to back.

A game and a half in, and Fultz looks like a broken shell.
Maybe he'll get it going as early as next half, but if he doesn't, sooner than later, the folks on the floor playing to win are gonna get awful tired of waiting.

Looks better than Trey Young. Only a year away from being a year away.

Fultz looks better than Ball as well.

Hart looks a lot lot lot better than both of them.

Lakers need to uncork Beasley if they are going to have any chance this year.

You're not really gonna make me explain, right?


*** OK, OK, like somebody reached way deeeeep down on in and ripped out his soul

*** Alright, let me put it to you a different way. Do you remember Erick Dampier's body language late in the game as Amare was outscoring him 40-0 in Phoenix's blowout over Dallas?

Yeah, one where they keep panting at you to play Lonzo Ball more, especially in crunch time.

Little bit off on Frankie (predicted 11-8-3 with 4 steals)

Finishes 5-5-1-3

I guess checking the 3 was tough for him as well......or was it Tim on Prince?

But like I said on another forum - if we allow less than 30 in the first quarter and are down by 4 or less (or leading) then the lineup stays the same.

Early in the game Frank's defense on the perimeter forced a bad pass where Tim picked up the steal.

The BOX score doesn't capture that under Frank which seems unfair.
 Defense can't accurately be quantified with Steals and Blocks.

Frank may never post Russell Westbrookian stat lines where his greatness is easily appreciated.

One must see Frank to love Frank.

Sorry but I do not understand the love for Frank outside of being a #1 draft choice. Great, nowhere close. At best an old school defensive specialist but with potential. Trier, Burke, and Hezonja what finds! Dumpster diving at the highest level. Such a different atmosphere for the knix who used to indiscriminately throw big bucks at any FA available.

Frank played 34 minutes last night. 
Tim was next with 29 minutes.
No one else had more than 27.

So its not just a handful of us Elbanians touting him.
Coach sees the value in a guy who can play the swiss army knife in lineups where playing fast requires unselfish long-armed players.

If you just look at stat lines and box scores and dont watch you are missing out.

With all due respect, what game were you watching?

There's a significant reason why Coach Fizz played Frank more minutes than anyone, including Timmy. 

Like in boxing, where everyone is enchanted by big punchers, when the idea is NOT TO GET HIT. 

You are looking at Frank's stat line, when you should be looking at the final score. 

Like there is something less than manly about being a defensive specialist? 

Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.

Defense

Defense is half the game.

Ideally KP/Vonleh/Robinson are the last line of defense in the paint.

But you need a front line too. Especially in the age of the three pt shot.

We got a guy in Frank who could be our 3 and D guy.

Sprinkle in one or two other "defensive specialiasts" and you have the recipe for a respectable NY Knicks team.

We have some guys who might fit that bill in Ron and Lance.  But they won't be here next year I think.
