If the Knicks had won 33 instead of 31 games, they'd be picking 3rd . Lol

If the Knicks changed their name to the LA Lakers they'd have gotten into the top 3 of the lottery two out of the last 3 drafts.

We're not trading KP.  He's under contract three more years and barring a radically different CBA by then we will be able to offer $30 million more than any other NBA team.  By that time, Phil, Melo etc will be gone and KP will start peaking along with Hernangomez along with hopefully a good young PG Phil drafts at 8 this summer

We have no idea what KP is. People assuming he's the franchise are out of their minds. No different than the way the organization/fanbase/local media has enabled Melo, we're now doing it with KP- who's off doing god knows what this offseason. The Knicks win 30 games every year- maybe it's time to realize the guys who are taking all of the shots are the reason why they suck?

Following this franchise since 2000 has been like trying to figure out Mulholland Dr after she opens up the box. Ripping the dude for hitting some focus mitts. In May. Holy ******* sh*t with people.

KP was a succesful pick.  He's going to end up being the 2nd best player out of the 2015 draft.  Is he hyped up and overrated because of NY?  Sure but that doesn't negate the fact that he is a future 20 and 10 guy.

 

That said the nba is so different now than the 90's and early 2000's.  Wings and PG's are so dominant now because no one is allowed to play zone defense or defense in general.  Big men like KP aren't as important as they were before but that doesn't mean a good center still doesn't help especially one who can shoot like KP

Rudy Gobert basically carried the Jazz to 50 wins- they matter if they're good. If Porzingis cant defend or rebound and wants to be the 7 foot Iverson on offense....he's going to continue to suck.

Porzingis is playing out of position. He's not a PF

Trading a 21 yr old PF averaging 18/7 in his second season is stupid and anyone advocating for his trade is being stupid.

The Knicks should definitely start trading guys, especially younger talent and/or guys on cheap deals. Always works out well when we do that.
