shot selection and his motor on defense is the next layer to his game.

if he can turn down a bad shot or beat case is him turning those bad shots into someone else's good shot. hes special.

so far hes proven that his floor is a tobias Harris but those 2 things I feel the same regarding Harris.

if they wanna be impact playoff players at the 3 .....shot selection is huge for their progression.

another guy that sucks with that is mudiay but that's a whole other issue lol

I think we're going to model after Miami; specialize in getting in the passing lanes and creating shots off of steals and running the fast break.

In order for that to happen Knocks and our guards must learn to anticipate the pass, crash and rebound, while some break and finish.

I think when it's all said and done coach will have 5 finishers on the floor all able to finish at the cup.

Shot selection and pass anticipation is what I'm looking for. Steals and easy buckets.

another reason why I think Tim can have a crazy year. hes not a good defender but 1 thing he does do is attack on breaks.

Frank has good vision in the open floor also and Knox is a deer out there.

Tim and Knox will have to bring it on defense. I'm confident frank will

Some other people see the potential also. Mitchrob ranked number 2.

He has got a bit of Camby in him.

Knox Sr. said he believes his son is still growing, forecasting he will reach between 6-foot-10 and 6-11 — around Durant’s height. Knox wears a size-18 sneaker (Durant’s sneaker size is 16).


Fucking A! 18?? Kid is definitely going to get some more height before it's all said and done.

And you gotta love this:

On draft night at Barclays Center, Knox Sr. wore Knicks colors — a blue and orange suit — but had no guarantee the Knicks would select him. They took him at No. 9 amid chants for Michael Porter Jr. followed by boos.

“That’s where we wanted to be — in New York, we wanted to be a New York Knick, with Steve Mills, all the way to Scott Perry and Fizdale,’’ Knox Sr. said. “Being in the mecca of basketball, the focal point of the United States and the world. I just wore my heart on my sleeve. We got what we wanted. It feels too good to be true.’’

The MOMENT it was reported that we contacted Kevins father before the draft...thats when we knew he was our guy and thats when we told him we are taking him.

im certain of that. you dont work a player out twice..have a pro day and call his dad unless your taking him.

I wish the kid a speedy recovery, but it would be tough in NY to ride this process out.

Michael Porter Jr. has undergone surgery of the lumbar spine at The Carrell Clinic in Dallas,” the team said in a press release. “The procedure was performed by Dr. Andrew Dossett. There is no timetable for his return to basketball participation

Actually I have a doubt: is it meant as a compliment or is it a shot at « regular season Melo » ?
