This Could Be Ugly

I am going to say that Carmelo scores more than 30 points tonight. It’s a conservative guess because most people think he might get 50, but he is going against Porzingas, which is not a great matchup for him on either end of the floor. One thing is for sure, Carmelo will be motivated to get revenge on the Knicks.

Beyond tonight, this is going to be a painful season as there are really very few reasons for optimism. But, you can also make the case that winning is the last thing the Knicks should be concerned with. They need to get another high draft pick and hope they can find the right guy. The NBA changed the lottery rules, so finishing last isn’t the priority, but finishing in the bottom three should be. (The new rules give the bottom three teams, the same chance to get the top pick- 14%)  A good draft pick is about all we have to look forward too. On the plus side, we at least have our draft picks, a big change from recent years.

That’s the sad reality of the Knicks these days. We are rooting for draft picks.

    interesting article on Espn today about a new top 50, a bunch were dropped off the old top 50 list and some added including active players. Wondering your thoughts on some of the drops and some of the adds, specifically about Jason Kidd and Dave Debusschere. I could argue against a few of the drops and a few of the adds.

      Debusschere was before my time so I’m not really sure about him. Kidd’s a tougher one, but I think his defense and passing put him there.

      I question Curry making the list. He’s amazing, but I think a player should probably have 10 seasons minimum.

    here’s the thing about Kidd, his “passing” doesn’t show in the numbers. He wasn’t a scorer so you would assume his assists would be higher, ala Stockton or even I. Thomas (original) who despite being a scorer put up higher assist numbers. Good player, doesn’t seem to qualify for 50 best all-time for me though

    partly, but also looking through the players ahead of him, the list is flawed. Love stats like that but every stat has flaws.
