Yeah I don't think the Knicks need to sign anyone significant for next season right now. Let's see how the kids and glue guys on this team come together and see if we can trade Melo for a younger player or a high pick if he has a bounce back year. I don't want him contaminating or stunting all the young guys. A guy like Clean-Anthony Early would probably flourish without Melo.
As MLE he'd expire after 1 year and I believe wouldn't count against the cap... And considering Phil compared Zingus to him, I feel like there could be no better mentor.
Problem with that is-He's not going to accept an MLE to come to a team that is nowhere near a championship.He's going to want to sign with someone that can contend for a title now,not play out his last few remaining years on a bubble playoff team
I actually watched more of the Knicks than the Rangers for the first time ever. What a scrappy team. I love the effort. They need to clean up the offensive rebounding and perhaps some dudes in the deep bench shouldn't get as many minutes. But it's early. That said, KP6 is a player. Damnit what a player.
The Knicks were awful shooting today. They got outworked in the first half but still hustled in the second and tried to make the comeback but the bad shooting doomed them in the end. But there was hustle. That's all I want to see. It adds up.
Next time KP should take most of the 3's in that kind of situation instead of having Galloway continue to miss or have Lou Amundson of all people try to penetrate. Afflalo also couldn't buy a basket today.
