  1. 2018 "Cool Story, Bro!" Thread

    Up by 45+ points going into tonight. Opponent had Rodgers/Adams stack. I had Aaron Jones. Goodbye and goodnight. My score was good enough to beat everyone else in the league.
  2. He had video game numbers in summer league but I am curious to see how he does in the preseason at the next level up of competition. You can't foul out in summer league but he had a lot of fouls (6,7,5,1,5 in about 25 mins a game). Maybe it was just the excitement of his first organized basketball in a year? From the posts here, he should be playing some minutes from opening night? No g league time to start? I assume it will all depend on how he does in the preseason. There's certainly little competition on the Knicks roster and he was a blue chip talent out of high school. Adding to the hype train, he went to highschool in New Orleans and trained with Anthony Davis.
  3. Nic Batum 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    50-70 seems fare. I would grab him if he drops past 70. Reasons for optimism: Batum had nagging injuries last season, goes back to SF (what he calls his "natural position"), and has a new coach that should emphasize more ball movement.
  4. Richaun Holmes 17-18 Season outlook

    Amir Johnson was out last game. Will he be back? I would assume 20-25 minutes for Holmes. He puts up stats with minutes. Coach Brown just isn't that in to Holmes this year.

    Dynasty league. Last year it was KD and Lowry out in the fantasy playoffs. This year KD, Nance, Gary Harris and Lowry (rest). The injury bug has hit so many guys this year - DMC, Butler, Kawhii, Love, Wall, Curry, Porzingis...the list goes on...
  6. Really hurts in fantasy playoffs. Hoping this is just a rest day and he still plays Saturday.
  7. David Nwaba 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    Am I missing something here? Lot of opportunity but seems like he would only be good for specific builds/punts or maybe in points leagues. No 3's (he's made 5 the entire year) and bad FT% (low 60's). Those really hurt coming from a wing. Also doesn't seem to rack up assists. Seems to be really good scoring in the paint though and is a plus in rebs, Fg%, and possibly blocks for his position.
  8. The floor for his FT% should be in the low to mid-60s based on his historical stats overseas and in the US. Possible that he has improved since. He shot better than that in the g league but on a very small sample size.

    Knicks aren't exactly known for their player development and Hornacek is known for inconsistent roles/minutes. They got him for McDermott so not a lot invested in him either.
  10. Willy plays center so KP injury likely doesn't impact him much. Earlier in the year Willy was " a big part of their future". lol He can't even get 5 minutes of garbage time. Knowing the Knicks, I could see them picking up another center in a trade. For the Willy faithful, 2 days to go.
  11. Coincidence he gets more PT when he is in trade rumors and Knicks are said to NOT want to trade Willy in a Bledsoe deal? Media pressure or just Hornacek randomness like last year? O'Quinn has a pretty friendly contract so teams could certainly would be interested in him as a backup center but I don't think teams would be willing to give much for him. Kanter's salary is pricey so would be harder to move. I also don't think they can trade him until later in the season. If O'Quinn is dealt, Willy and Kanter can split minutes at center.
  12. Playing next to Brolo = more rebounds.
  13. I expected Hornacek to have some strange rotations but zero minutes at the half? I think I saw Willy on the bench there but not sure. Is he in the building and active to play? With Hornacek, we could just as easily see this guy get a DNP as he could start.
  14. I have Billy in one league but figured there was a high probability that Hornacek would play musical chairs with his centers again this year. As for the NY front office Kanter/Billy/O'Quinn/Noah at center. smh Agree they should have Porzingis play at center and see if they can get something for the excessive number of centers on the roster. I guess that won't happen with this management/ownership.

    Assume some sort of message is being sent? Why else would you bench your starting PG in crunch time? Wolves looked like crap the last 5 minutes of the game.
