    Even Woodson is telling Melo to shut up about free agency. :lol:

    Nerlens Noel will show every team that passed on him what they are missing by.... sitting on the bench for a year! Take that!

    I was thinking the exact same thing when I heard about Noel.

    btw i had my fantasy draft over the weekend and managed to end up with Westbrook, Kobe, and Rondo. didn't really want to take on a lot of injury risk but they kept falling, and i couldn't resist.

    if they get back on the court i can team those three up with Marc Gasol and Paul George, which i think would be an otherworldly starting lineup - - but i wonder if i'm taking on way too much risk. tbh i have a feeling that Boston will try to hold out Rondo as much as possible, so i will prolly drop him if i get a shot at a breakout waiver wire player

    whats youre league set-up? in other words how large is your bench? i like westbrook and kobe, not a fan of rondo - he may not return until next year. if youre going to draft injured players then target their backups in later rounds to leverage your risk

    it's pretty shallow - i start PG SG SF PF C and two utility players. and four bench spots. H2H with weekly roster changes

    yeah, youre going to have a rough time of it for the first couple of weeks depending on how long kobewest come back. if its 1 month into the season i think youre looking good

    i agree completely. Westbrook is said to be missing 6 weeks at the outside, and i'm hopeful Kobe takes a similar timeline or less. i would be thrilled to go something like 3-3 during those weeks, and then field a beastly lineup going forward. this is my first time trying this strategy so we'll see how it goes. i'm normally injury risk averse and i started out that way (i even passed on taking Wade twice!) but then i kind of lost my mind

    i would have done the same probably. this years draft is really deep and a lot of the 2nd and 4th rounders swapped position this year. Guys like p. george, k.leonard, rubio, batum are all solid 2nd round picks while guys like perennial 1/2nd rounders are now available 3rd round and lower - J. SMith, Millsap, P. Gasol - even when I think they will have top top3 round value at the lowest. Makes for a fun auction draft

    about melo imo it's all blown out of the proportion by media
    he's just jealous of spotlight Dwight/Lebron had and he wants a primadonna moment of his own
    maybe for the sake of the season he shouldn't talk about it now, but all he did was being honest
    so don't overreact

    No one is overreacting, this isn't new for Melo.

    Any sane person would not rock the boat if you have confidence in your team, you want to go to the season with the trust of your teammates so he really should have just shut his mouth and see how the season plays out.

    New York Twitter is going nuts because Chris Smith didn't get cut.

    JR Smith's little brother who is terrible or at the very least not better than James White. When asked if Chris Smith's chance of making the team are helped by being JR's brother, Woodson replied, "sure it does." He won't make the final 15 man roster though.

    the knicks might be one of shittiest franchises ever. management is def the worst. and thats coming from a Sacramento Kings fan after 8 shitty years under the maloofs

    Have they ever made a single trade that didnt absolutely destroy their future? Just off the top of my head:
    • Francis
    • Marbury
    • Curry
    • Anthony

    edit-It seems like they are constantly sacrificing short term success over long term growth
