    Okay we know that the team finishing last has 25% probability of getting the first pick. More important is what is the probability of getting the first OR second pick?

    In reality, if Knicks got...

    For this season, and right now, losing is so very good. The goal: the best chance at getting either Towns or Okafor. Knick future depends on that. Knicks "lead" by 2 & 1/2 games with 10 to play. ...

    Folks, there is an awful lot of talk about why losing is not hat important and it is supported with a lot of numbers and anecdotal evidence. You are missing the point. The main point is to give...

    D-Leethal, you seem to be one of the few who understand the urgency of finishing last - it guarantees a pick no worst than 4th. Yes, one can talk about the luck of the lottery etc., but now you are...

    Team did not get the memo: "You are supposed to lose."

    Weezy, you have it about right. Phil is really telling you everything, but you have to pay close attention and read between the lines. Russell is a smoke screen. You are not going to win with an...

    Knicks need rebounding and that begins with a real center - Okafor or Towns. All this about novice PGs seem to miss that point. An elite PG is nice, but it does not trump an elite C.

    Folks, the Knicks absolutely need two things: rebounding and a consummate PG - i.e., one with athleticism and smarts, who can shoot and play defense. The present team has neither. Okafor and a free...

    By the start of next season, the Knicks need to come up with three top tier performers - C, PG, PF, The C can come from the draft - and that seems possible. The key here is a superb, smart,...

    Here is where Phil will have to show his acumen. Knicks do not have their 2nd round pick (which would have been pretty good). So much rides on that 1st round pick.

    Last year, it was Young and Granderson. How did that turn-out? This year, it is Cuddyer, who is 36 and coming off an injury-plagued year. Why waste the money and the 1st round draft choice? ...

    Guess you missed the point about KC & SF. They both play in spacious ballparks. Thus having fast, athletic outfielders is an advantage. The Mets have those type of players. Take advantage of it. ...

    KC and SF showed you how to win, but will Alderson pay attention? I doubt it. But if he does and he really is serious about winning, then you:

    Right now Melo is hurting the team - trying too hard and not being smart. When you are being triple-teamed, you pass the ball. Not very complicated.

    Can Mets Learn Anything from World Series Teams?

    Both the Giants and the Royals are playing smart baseball. Both play in spacious outfields. The Royals place a premium on speed. Both are sound defensively. Neither places any emphasis on home...
