  1. Doom for President! Kristaps ROYzingis!

    Porzingis is going to win Rookie of the Year, and then he’s gonna be All NBA for the next ten years after that.

  2. Arbitrary data cutoff but, over the last 8 games, KP has averaged 17.3 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.3 blocks and 1.4 assists per game on 49.5% from the field, 50% from 3, and 83.3% from the line, for a TS% of .602.

  3. On a totally different subject, is anyone else surprised that teams from the East have a winning record against the West this year and that, if you don’t include the Warriors, the rest of the West is a combined 117-144?

  4. When was the last time a Knick was rookie of the month?? Landry Fields?? Channing Frye?? Mark Jackson??

  5. Bwahahahaha. The Hawks just sent Timmy Hardaway Jr. to the D-League. Looks like we got Jerian Grant for next to nothing.

    According to Posting & Toasting, Chris Copeland won it in April 2013, though it’s more like half a month. Then Landry Fields before him.

    Timmy is more like negative value, since we would have to pay him if he didn’t get traded.

  8. I think someone mentioned it before, but Timmy’s two great games late in the season (which pissed every Knicks fan off) were like the butterfly effect for the Knicks. More wins, less ping pong balls, we drop to #4, pick Porzingod, and Atlanta thinks Hardaway is actually decent and gifts us Grant.

    We therefore owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to TH2

  9. Tim Hardaway Jr should be ashamed of himself. All he needed was his father’s handles along with some effort on defense and he’d be an All Star. I was actually hoping he’d hit his stride in Atlanta. He’s another player who was physically ready but mentally unprepared for the NBA.

  10. KP has really surprised everyone. While I was cautiously optimistic, he’s exceeded my expectations. The really surprising things are his athleticism, agility, stamina, strength, smarts, desire, dedication and maturity.

    @5 – The East is simply much improved. Some West teams have collapsed further than expected. There are only 6 teams in the West with winning records.

    @10 – It might go down as the greatest Knick trade since we acquired Earl the Pearl.

  11. There are only 6 teams in the West with winning records.

    Yeah, but that’s kind of stilted because those western teams all need to play the Warriors more often…

  12. @14 and the Spurs.

    I agree with public sentiment that the 2 elite squads are out west. But all of the good average to above average teams are in the East.

  13. Yeah, but let’s talk about how Kevin Seraphin was below average before he was on the Wizards.
