How about we stop signing over the hill aging stars and keep on going in the direction we are going in

Forget Gasol

Derozan i can live with,but hes going to expect the moon

If we've learned anything these past few years,you cant strap yourself into financial Salary Cap hell (see Melo,Stat) and expect to field a competitive team with the remaining few dollars

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.

I see more Dirk Nowitzki in Zingus than Pau Gasol.

I don't see either Nowitzki or Gasol. Are people comparing them because their Euros?

He seems more of a taller, little less explosive Anthony Davis.

Overall, I think KP6 is his own entity. Any comparison is hard because he's a unique talent.

Melo has actually looked good this year- his man D is the best in his career and he's effectively facilitated the offense. His percentages are down but if they come back up Carmelo is gonna ball.

He is kinda unique.

Pau is a spot up shooter. He'll take the open shot and needs a PG to get him the ball. Dirk can create his shot.

I use to watch a lot of basketball when Dirk was coming through (end of Bulls era, start of Lakers era, Sacramento Kings etc.) and I just see comparisons to young Dirk.

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

A little Kevin Garnett.
He can play 3 positions and his size will make mismatches.

Melo was meh today. Knicks almost blew what should have been a comfortable win.

Good win yesterday. Knicks dominated the OKC Westbrook's for 3 quarters.

Woulda like to see them get Kristaps involved in the offense more early. He hit a beautiful 3 and nabbed 2 tough rebounds and then it feels like he got froze out a little.

Missed the game but nice to see such a massive turnaround.

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.

KP was just awesome...the silky smooth stroke, the athleticism and the length inside...two key blocks on Harden down the stretch. And, his rebounding has been a revelation.

The Knicks have the 4th best defensive statistics in the league when Porzingod is on the floor. He's a two-way monster and he's only 20.

As a Knicks fan, I'm starting to love this pick more and more.

I had liked the pick initially, so it's not surprising, but he's already doing even better than I thought he would.

He's still only 20. Sky's the limit for him if he can stay healthy and bulk up a bit more.

Even in a bad game by Porzingis, he still gets 20/14/2.

Dude's a beast. Terrible first half kinda doomed the Knicks. I did appreciate their bounceback in the second half, though.

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.

The second quarter was kind of uncanny. NOBODY was hitting a thing. They'd get 2 or 3 chances on a possession and everyone would shoot a brick.

Good to see KP end up with a good line nonetheless. He was physically bullied a bit by Whiteside (what a find for the Heat, btw; great young player) but was not bad overall.

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.

Knicks looking good. Kristaps is a rebounding machine.

Love to see Harden struggle. Travelling and flopping forever. Close this out and get the W.

Knicks just UNBELIEVABLY blew a double digit lead.

Afflalo is having a tremendous game, though.

edit- wow, bad officiating ****ing over the Knicks. Missed a moving screen, and also missed a double dribble late in the 4th Q.

The refs cost them the game. Galloway is in a bad slump. Can't hit the floor. They look better without Carmelo.
