The most important thing to do this off-season is signing Beas.

Where TF IS everybody. Hardaway adds a entirely different aspect to this team. He's always pushing the pace or spacing the floor with his outside shot. Still doesn't make me change my view of what we need to do but it makes you feel good about the prospects of this team next year.

top 10 is looking very likely. 5th worst record is possible.

so long as perry tries selling at the trade deadline i'll be happy wherever the knicks land in the lottery.

players who shouldnt be on the team after the deadline:
1. lee - aging player that is overpaid. concerned he has no takers without an asset attached.
2. half amazing, half a brain-easy. - 2nd round pick?
3. o'quinn - 2nd round pick? will get more money than he's worth in the offseason. knicks dont need another center with kanter, noah, and willy on the books. willy is a better bet at 1.5mil
4. jack - open up minutes for burke
5. sessions - waived.

serious question, who is willing to watch the remainder of the game after seeing the lineup of jack, lee, lance, kp, kanter on the floor?

hornacek really should be fired for managing to tank in the most awful way possible.

maybe. i'm holding out on one more offseason for him to increase his strength and stamina to where it needs to be in order for him to be a first option. it doesnt help that he gets doubled every night because teams dont bother to defend lance and jack at the perimeter.

Well he either
- needs to take it easy coming back from an injury
- is too good to ensure the tank

The good: after looking a little rusty on defense early on, THJ looked sharp and the team played once again the best with him on the court (+11).

The bad: KP is on offense in a real funk right now, seemingly confused on how to get out of it. Also some sloppy play by some of our guys, turning it over at crucial times or not securing a rebound that looked safe.

All in all, three and a half quarters were fine, but the start of the fourth cost us the game.

Nothing unexpected against a very good Timberwolves team, so on to the next. :arrow:

Clearly a minutes restriction. He played four stints of 6 and a little minutes every quarter for roughly 25 minutes. Will be interesting to see what they do with the upcoming back-to-back. Play him around 20 minutes in both or let him sit out one completely.
