    One thought to “Knicks Morning News (2016.09.18)”

    1. All this talk about how “hea;thy and explosive” Rose is now is making me nervous. I’d love for the media to talk about how surly/angry Noah is and how he literally looks physically strong this season. Or..how motivated O’Quinn is, how Courtney Lee has much more to offer on offense than spot up shooting (he can actually handle the rock and get in the lane but that’s never been a necessary role in the NBA for him), or even how Brandon Jennings is saying and doing all the right things a leader at the PG spot should say and do- not to mention how motivated he is. I think those 3 subjects are more importan than how healthy Rose looks- especially with the pending case. Besides, I’ve already seen video of Rose getting back on defense in 2K17 and crumpling to the floor with a knee injury while doing it lol. I don’t wanna hear about Rose anymore until his legal problems are over and he is actually playing well. While he is the wild card, he hasn’t done or said anything to convince me that he’s ready to take the Knicks to the next level yet. Or if he even knows how. Phil helped turn MJ and Kobe into leaders- hopefully somehow he can spark a similar transformation in Rose.
