obv im exaggerating but my goal now...legit only thing worth doing is getting 1 or 2 players better than KP....looking at this draft...Ayton and Doncic have the skill/talent to do so...I just dont trust Ayton's motor he just seems like a big kid having fun. Doncic thinks the game...even tho he doesnt have the best physical tools...similar to Kidd or Bird who just saw/thought the game at a higher level.

Trae is nasty but im not a fan of high turnover players esp as skinny as he is...championship teams are built on not turning it over. So even tho we are far from that currently i'd still build with those principles from the ground up.

JJJ to me can be special also but we need a great player that makes plays and unfortunately in the top 7...the only perimeter guys are Doncic/Trae/Sexton......i'd take Doncic 10/10 and would consider taking ayton over those 3 as well if his interviews go well.


Is Porter a SF or PF (It is impossible for me to see college ball in Denmark? I know he is injured but what position would he play in the NBA? Would he work next to KP as a SF?

thats a great question....objectively...in todays nba hes def a tweener...but i see him the same way i saw Jayson Tatum

and Tatum is holding himself well at the 3...I just feel like Porter being a little bigger might be a 4 at the next level but if he was playing with KP...he'd have to be the 3..KP can't survive playing the 5 with him helping him out.

Porter if healthy is the best scorer in this class...well maybe not the way Trae drops buckets but as an overall scorer...Porter kills you from everywhere..itll be like drafting Melo honestly..but taller not as heavy.

A little sunshine in this tough hour for Knicks fans:

By Al Iannazzone
al.iannazzone@newsday.com @Al_Iannazzone

In his first public comments since his season ended on Feb. 6, Porzingis said “it’s pretty far off to put a timetable out there.” But four weeks out of surgery, Porzingis is walking without crutches. He said his rehab is going well, he has a positive mindset, and he’s also begun working on his upper-body strength.

Oh yeah for sure. If we could get Randle I'd be pumped.

He'd be the perfect frontcourt pairing with KP because he's fast, quick, strong, a beast on the boards and most importantly, young. I'd rather lock him up than Kanter, who I really do like.

Well see that's the thing. I said we should trade him at the deadline. You wanted to let him walk so we get nothing. So essentially we got Mudaiy for Melo. Great utilization of assets.

Oh well.

im beyond considering moves just because of what it got us from Melo...im just focused on the team building.

if you let Kanter walk...get room to sign someone else is a whole other situation. I just mean that thinking about prior moves to debate what you do moving forward isnt the way to go.

Randle has been playing great lately. He's the reason why the Lakers are still in the po run. He doesn't shoot 3s but he has a nice enough jumper (shooting 39% from 3-10 feet and from 10-16 feet on the season) so that he doesnt jam the paint either. I think he will commend more than the $5M he has in his qualifying offer. I wouldn't be surprised it rises to $15M/yr

Question is: will the lakers go all in in trying to get George/Lebron or will they play it a bit safer and keep Julius??

Frank
Hardaway
Bridges
Randle
Porzingis

I'd have to see Frank take a huge leap in offense and Bridges pan out but that right there is an exciting modern day lineup, for sure.

Interesting article on KP's rehab. One thing about KP, he can never be accused of not working hard.

i really...hope and wish he can play the 5 when he comes back.

as much as he will stil get bodied by the DJ's, Adam's of the league I can't overlook 2 things he does well and 1 thin he does bad.

Pros:
1. protect the rim
2. cover pick and rolls

Con:
1. Horrible at covering the 3 point line.

and when i see guys like Clint Capela doing that I wonder how he surives it and KP doesnt. Along with the fact we have a 19 year old PG that statistically is top in covering the pick and roll.

To me NBA defenses are derived off 2 things...covering the 3 point line and pick and roll. Frank/KP cover one of those things and they can cover different positions on a pinch.
