2017-18 Game Thread: Knicks vs. Nets

Sorry, I got so used to the West Coast game times. ;)

The Knicks host the Nets, one of the few teams that they can still beat!

Let’s go? Knicks?

    Looks dislocated. Reminds me of when I broke my elbow years ago and it went limp from there, twisted.

    If you’re not watching, it was Baker playing tough D.

    I have seen too many action movies, because I expected him to just slam it into a wall to get it to fit back in.

    I’m not going to dis Okafor, because I read that piece someone posted a link to the other day. He talked about losing his mother to an asthma attack in front of him at age 9. Retreated into bball as a way to deal. Stop humanizing bad players, Players’ Tribune! Now I can’t say snarky things about him.

  4. Z-man

    Bigger, he was way more hyped and drafted higher. A poor man’s Eddy Curry is a fair comparison at this point.

  5. ClashFan

    Supposedly he’s been playing better recently, but he hasn’t looked good tonight.

    NJ doesn’t look to be playing real hard tonight, at least so far.

    Darko was just a dumb pick based on poor european scouting. Okafor was the consensus #1 pick for a while based on his college play, then tailed off closer to the draft. Nobody thought he’d be this bad.

    Obviously Darko was a huge bust, but he had some years where he was at least playable. Okafor has been among the worst players in the league every game he steps on the floor

    Trey can’t defend, but maybe he can be a real nice energy backup PG off the bench. Frank really needs to take over next year as the starter, anyways.

    Anthony Bennett is undoubtedly the biggest bust ever…#1 pick to out of the league in just a few years. At least Darko hung around awhile

    And Cleveland was rewarded for their stupidity by getting the #1 pick the following year. Life is not fair.

  11. Silky Johnson, Fleet Admiral of the Tank Armada

    Everybody but Cleveland knew Bennett shouldn’t have been drafted in the top three, and Okafor might be even worse than Bennett productivity wise—it’s a real toss up

    Just checked the box score at work. That is a nice stat line for Kanter in 27 minutes. If only he could defend the damn PNR better!!!

    Ewing might not have a 20 pt, 20 reb, 5 ast game in the regular season but he had one in Game 7 of the 1994 East Finals: 24 pts, 22 rebs and 7 asts plus 5 blks too.

    From espn: Channing Frye the only experienced center on the roster besides Thompson. Frye, who’s in the final season of his contract, was apparently headed to the Sacramento Kings when the two teams discussed a trade sending George Hill to the Cavaliers. Will Cleveland feel comfortable dealing Frye now?

    They need a KOQ.

  15. The Glass Half Rebuilt

    We don’t even need the Nets pick. I will gladly take their first round pick and any combination of expiring contracts/Iman Shumpert for O’Quinn and Lee.

    Hell, what they need is a tall drink of Noah. He’s actually a good fit for them (if healthy). But that means we’re taking back Thompson.

    The last thing we need is the Kardashian curse hanging around the Knicks.
