Kanter wasn't down with the team plan? Lol. What team plan? To be total shit?

Nobody who belongs on a playoff team in this league is ever good with that.

Fiz talked all this crap about new winning culture, winning system, earning minutes. Utter twattle. Stuff matters.

In case anybody missed, Kanter's exclamation point on the evening with 11 seconds left:

We have no Aminu or Harkless who each cover a position and a half, allowing Enes to root out the post and gather rebounds. We have no Lillard or McCollum. If Kanter is smart, he’ll stay in Portland for what they can give him. Otherwise he’s odds on to feel a bit Jerome Jamesy signing a bigger deal somewhere else.

Comments re:  Porzingis rehab/conditioning.  I would also say CONDONING/ACCEPTING LOSING factored in.

OKC shot 5 for 33 from 3 pt range.

I don't think Kanter held their perimeter shooters to 15%

So if OKC makes its usual percentage Portland loses big.

He only commented that KZ was only doing light jogging and wasn't full on sprinting yet.

It was a fairly neutral comment and not a critique on KZ's conditioning.

It was KZ's brother-agent who posted the incendiary "This is #1 Bullshit" remark to it.

Makes me think that was part of the plan by Janit -- take a hairline fracture in the relationship and chip it with the blunt edge of an Axe

If that doesn’t happen, the hope in New York is that until the roster improves, Fizdale can develop the talents of the Knicks’ trio of guards -- Frank Ntilikina, Emmanuel Mudiay and Tim Hardaway, Jr. -- in which New York has invested Draft and literal treasure the last couple of seasons. (It will help that Fizdale’s relationship with Hardaway, Jr., goes back to when the latter was a kid and his father, the master of the killer crossover, worked in the Heat organization after Tim Hardaway Sr.’s playing days ended.)



- Didnt develop
- About to be gone
- Gone

As for Kanter, he was more concerned about his contract year and numbers than any team plan.
He was still playing a good amount and putting up big bench numbers.
But he started whining and complaining very publicly, and forced the issue.
Basically, the Knix were unlikely to re-sign Kant at any price he'd be looking for.
Knix have extensive other needs, hope to make a splash in FA, and it's not hard to find a cheap decent C these days.


As Lester asks...What team plan? That deserves an answer.

Moreover, you begrudge him complaining when his role is reduced to nothing? He's not an aging baller. The guy has pride. Shut up, sit there, and let the team tank?

There were many ways to handle this better and still develop other big men on the team.

Yes.

Thus he wanted his deserved minutes


What is your point?

Knicks in the end did him a solid.

Enes will make plenty of money after his playoff appearance.

Mitchell ROBINSON. 

Maybe Mitch develops even quicker without catering to Enes Kanter and his ending salary.  He had no reason to be loyal to NYK and would've taken the highest offer as a FA.  Mitchell is our for four years.  Makes sense to PLAN AROUND THE NEW KID.  Thats the plan.  Invest in your long term asset.  Not your moustached asshat.

It should not be a question.  Enes was never in the plan.  He was plan Z.
