This is an oddly long homestand, no? Anyhow, this is a major game for tanking purposes, as the Knicks have to be the big favorites tonight, which would tie them with Cleveland. If they win this one, that starts to make falling out of the bottom three a real possibility. That would be pretty devastating. I’ll still root for MitchRob to have a good game, though! I can’t help it!
From Zach Braziller: David Fizdale understands. He gets Knicks fans’ desire to secure the best possible odds to land the best possible prospect. Who wouldn’t want Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett or Ja Morant? But it’s not going to change anything about how he coaches his team. “I’m not wired to lose on purpose,” Fizdale said Wednesday. “That just is not, I can’t even get my body to function that way or my mind to function that way. I’m lucky because [Knicks president] Steve [Mills] and [general manager] Scott [Perry] and Mr. [owner James] Dolan have all said to me, ‘You …continue reading
You already know I played some 2KNBA games in the past (I didn’t buy 2K19, I have some sort of on-again off-again relationship with the franchise). You already know I like to play MyPlayer/MyCareer as my go-to mode. You already know, also, that my build of choice is a stocky SF/PF that plays like a ground bound Shawn Marion with no dribble skills whatsoever. I don’t know why, but it looks like my brain refuses to learn the basic joypad coordination needed to achieve an average ballhandling level in the game, so that’s the best I can do. Just once, …continue reading
Well, here’s hoping that the site doesn’t go down again! This should hopefully be another fun game. DSJ is a blast to watch and Orlando’s guards should have trouble with him, so this could be a lot of fun. Hopefully the Magic somehow pull off the win, but with the current flattened lottery odds, I’m less worried about wins as I would be if this were last year (of course, this is the first time the Knicks figured out how to tank properly, but, hey, what are ya gonna do? Dolan’s Razor is gonna Dolan’s Razor). Let’s go, MitchRob!
The day after Dennis Smith Jr.’s spectacular Sunday performance, the Knicks’ potential point guard of the future was slated to go on a food-shopping date. And it wasn’t just any food-shopping date. Knicks coach David Fizdale had himself a talk with Smith on Saturday after he benched him in the fourth quarter of Friday’s first game out of the All-Star break. The lengthy player-coach discussion centered on nutrition, Fizdale advising him to get into better shape and rely more on the club’s dietician. Whatever Smith ate in those 24 hours surely worked. On Sunday night, Smith had fans less worried …continue reading
