:One thing about cap space is it lasts.

One caller yesterday actually suggested taking on bbad contracts with the space to add picks.

Do the Knicks strike you as the kind of org that would delay instant gratification with all that $$$$
When the Lakers had $$ they spent it on KCP.   You can't sell the NY or LA fan base on picks for bad contracts.
(We just frikkin traded KP to dump bad contracts!)  We will bring in some body to take the $$

Very likely, yes.

Is Ball still alive?

Is this supposed to be funny?

Les who's your favorite Knicks coach?

But everything doesn't suck. We got space and picks and a couple good young ones and a bunch of young ones who suck. Opinions will vary greatly on which are which.

See what happens I guess. Dolan still owns the team so odds are lots of bad things, but we've started summers in a lot worse position than this.

*** Slight amendment to the above: we've never started a summer before with a coach as provenly awful as fuckwhale. Ring the bell. Send him to hell.

I dunno about coaches, I mean, Fizzy is awful, but how about these ...

I know I am 100% alone in this forum in thinking this, but I still say Fish was wonderful coach.

Just4 coaxing the best team ball of a career out of that dribbling parody of a lifestyle brand once known as #StayMelo***


*** or whatever he was once known as ... #Melo4Lif3? #MeeMel0? #MarshM33Lo?

Les, but I thought you and Melo were rite and tite... or something like that. That’s what you were sayin towards the end of his Knicks career. Oh, it was because of wonderful Phish? Oh, oh 😮 😯 😲

PS. Message to Knocks FO...

DON’T LET N.O. FLEECE YOU.

DON’T EXPECT DURANT TO BE YOUR SAVIOR.

LET KYRIE GO TO THE NYETS. You have Smith Jr. and you can go for D’Angelo if you feel you need another PG. But the one PG you don’t need is Kyrie.

Any questions? Just ask.

I like how Fizz handled the tank and the yute and reclamations and kept guys focused.  #3 pick is our reward.

Don't think you can fairly judge Fizz until he has a genuine team with legit starters.  Last year most of the roster improved and/or exceeded expectations (Mud, Trier, Mitch!, Vonleh, Dot, Kornet)

Franc the exception.  While Knox was up-and-down, but with some nice stretches/flashes, including Rook of December award.

I'm always amazed when a player like Durant (owed $30M next year) or really any player (average salary $8M) has a serious leg injury and just walks to the lockerroom holding the shoulders of teammates. 

Can't believe they don't use a cart as in football, or a wheelchair or stretcher.  Limping to the locker room can't help the injury any.  A billion dollar sports industry, hi-tech sports medicine, trainers and med personnel, and they have their players hobble off like I'd do on the playground.  Bizarre.

This has baffled me for years . . .

I don't like Kyrie.
Knix best bet is to wait for AD in FA.
Let's hope Celts trade for him and then he wants NY a year later.
Or he goes to the Lakes and doesn't enjoy playing with LeBJ in a LBJ dominated org with a cast of nobodies.

Knix draft Barrett.  Pair him with Knox and Mitch.
Keep Vonleh and maybe D. Andrethe Giant.
Decide on Jr. Smith, Mud, Franc.

Jr. Smith -- Mud/Franc
Barrett / Trier/Dot
Knox / Barrett
Vonleh / Knox
Deandre / Mitch

We'd be a young developing team.
With promise at 3 or 4 slots.
DeAndre as our steady vet.

Try to pick up a solid outside shooter in FA.
Add a steady Eddy Davis type on the cheap.

Another development year, get another Top 10 pick.
Have cap space for a max FA like AD the following year.
Two max slots if we play it carefully/right.

Can't count on shortcuts. Rebuilding takes time and patience.
Hope we can get AD for just cap space after a year.

I'd be fine tanking another year.  Playing Jr. Smith - Franc - Barrett - Knox - Mitch big minutes.

It’s a good plan Bo. No need to do anything crazy.

As I suspected -

good chance Durant already had partially torn Achilles, like Ewing.

New deal to consider

Kevin Knox, a future 1 and 2 2s for this year's #5 overall.
