Will the Knicks dreams of being a super team come crashing down in a cloud of reality in the first quarter tonight?

Tough blow for SA, Green is out the first 3 weeks or so. He & Kawhi are so good on the perimeter defensively... We'll see who can try and fill in for him

Knicks most important piece is Joakim Noah. He's the guy who will make this team good or bad. A prime Joakim was a top ten player and DPOY candidate consistently. Always been one of my favorite players but I doubt he returns back to his prime days. Injuries have ruined him. Knicks are gambling on Rose/Noah health. Signing Noah might've been a mistake considering I doubt there were teams offering him such a contract.

Knicks don't need Rose and Noah to go back to their prime MVP type days, people act like the Knicks are hoping for miracles and their season rests on whether Rose & Noah can get back to MVP status. honestly if they somehow did, the Knicks would be a title contender. Prime Noah & Rose were monsters.

But that's not gonna happen. Noah & Rose are not being asked to be the best two players on the team like they were in CHI, they are #3 & #4 guys now. This team is built around KP & Melo which is one of the better duo's in the east.

Realistic good case scenario expectations would be Rose & Noah both play 65+ games at 75% of what they used to be. If the knicks can get that, they can be dangerous.

Rose is an average PG who can't shoot and Noah can't stay healthy. In what world is Porzingis and Melo alone good enough to carry this team? I don't think anyone believes that. Part of why they went out to get Noah and Rose is because they plan on those two getting back some of their game. Why else would they pay them so much? Have you seen Noah's contract? That's not exactly bargain money.

An average PG is a huge upgrade though for NY. Rose will do well under Jeff, he gets the most out of PG's. He only played one preseason game but he looked anything but average, he's still really fast.

Noah missed a ton of games last year but the prior two years combined he only missed 15 games total. Is it that crazy to think he just had one injured year? Let's not act like he hasn't been able to stay on the court for 3-4 years. Plus his injury last year was the shoulder, that's much less worrisome than a lower body injury, especially for a big.

Knicks don't need KP & Melo to carry the team, that's the whole point of having role players like Lee, Noah, Rose, Jennings...etc...I was just saying they are one of the better duo's in the East.

agreed that Noah was an overpay though. but this is a world where Mahimi & Mosgov are getting 16m+.

I think that's what most fans are having difficulty understanding. And Noah has always had injuries in the past. He's not someone who can stay healthy.. When he's healthy and 100%, he was a top ten player. Knicks 100% absolutely need KP and Melo to carry the team if Noah+Rose is not healthy.. That's primarily my point. This team will only be as good as Rose+Noah are because Melo+Porzingis are going to give you 40 points every night. What about Noah+Rose? As for Jennings, he's highly inconsistent. Every team hates him. I like Courtney Lee.

i think we can all agree that the knicks wont be good if Noah and Rose are both not healthy.

but I also think there's a better chance of those two being relatively healthy than people are making it out to be. When I say relatively I say 65+ games... because everyone is soft these days and takes 15-20 games off.

anyway, they are healthy NOW... so let's just see how they look and what they can do before we start saying both will get hurt.

I will say this, no matter what happens in the regular season, IF they are healthy come playoff time, they could be the toughest 1st round matchup Lebron and co have ever had.

I probably won't watch a ton of the games tonight, but I'll be curious to see how these pan out. That's a tough first matchup for New York, and I think the Cavs could run them out of Cleveland in the first half. But the other two matchups will certainly be interesting. If Golden State beats up on San Antonio, then any hopes that other teams and their fans have of the Warriors needing time to gel could be crushed after one night.

It's actually an amazing site when you consider the stats section, but agreed, the main part is worthless. It actually couldn't properly load the box-scores for me just now so I had to go back to ESPN.

First impressions: This James guy on Cleveland has a chance to be a solid player this season.

I actually agree, but also with Wade's recent comments that James "can't pass Jordan". I know that secretly stung James and that he was going to come out full beast-mode to start the year... and probably all year. But you're right, it may catch up to him in the playoffs. We shall see.

Exactly. Its also not like Rose and Noah are 30-35 min players anymore. They need to use Porzingas more.

The bench will not be consistent at all this year and will probably be out played by the opponents bench.

JasonJohnHorn
10-25-2016, 10:22 PM
I realize they are playing the Knicks, who have a lot of new players, but WOW!!

LBJ really showed up tonight....triple-double? Making a case for MVP from day one.


What's equally impressive is that Love posted a 20/10 game while Kyrie was a point off a 30-point game. Yes, they are playing a team that is still adjust to new roster changes, but that is just a level of dominance that is awe inspiring.

FlashBolt
10-25-2016, 10:23 PM
1) Noah sucks.
2) Knicks need Rose to be a pass-first player or at least try to get open shots for his teammates. Rose has such a low BBIQ that he doesn't realize he has teammates to help.
3) LeBron just coasted a 32 minute game and put up 19/11/14. Albeit against a pretty bad team but he looked like he didn't lose a beat. I think he'a going for MVP.
4) As I said, Kyrie is a top five PG and the best scoring PG in the NBA right now. If he keeps this up, LeBron can finally play a Magic-like role as he always wanted. I just hope Kyrie can keep this up and not get injured. Dude will surprise you guys this season... Lowry... LOL..

So if this game is an indication it looks like Draymond and Klay are going to be the ~4 minute subs and he'll keep Curry in to do work with some of the 2nd team in that span (or for a few minutes). Then Curry's going to sit for ~6 minutes to start the 2nd quarter while Durant and Klay run the offense. I like the idea.

I really like what the Spurs did this offseason with the additions of Gasol and Lee. There's a lot to like about this Spurs team, and anybody sleeping on them this season would be making a mistake.

As far as Golden State goes, we can all at least say that they'll lose at least one quarter of basketball this season. ...Seriously, though, I think some initial rust is expected. I'd be shocked if they came out and started the season on some crazy streak. They've got to figure out how to play together offensively.

Lee is a good player to have on the bench. He's got a well rounded offensive game but he can fall in love with his mid range a little too often. He might not be great defensively but he does try on that end.

I really like what the Spurs did this offseason with the additions of Gasol and Lee. There's a lot to like about this Spurs team, and anybody sleeping on them this season would be making a mistake.

As far as Golden State goes, we can all at least say that they'll lose at least one quarter of basketball this season. ...Seriously, though, I think some initial rust is expected. I'd be shocked if they came out and started the season on some crazy streak. They've got to figure out how to play together offensively.

What exactly is starting off slow for you? To me, they sleep walk to 62 wins

I was concerned how this whole size thing would work against GS. If GS is playing sloppy and missing, it'll work. But once they speed it up and get going, creating turnovers, it's where I worry. The 2nd unit is better equipped for that kind of play, they just lack defense.

So the starters absolutely have to play smart ball and not turn it over.

What's wrong with basing opinions on results? If we've learned one thing by watching super teams over the last 10-15 years, it's that judging a team on paper doesn't always correspond to actual success on the court. I've seen this Cavs team with essentially the exact same roster win an NBA championship six months ago. There's no evidence whatsoever at this point to suggest they're not one of the two best teams in the league.

If there's one area (aside from depth) I think you could maybe say was a slight downgrade from last season to this year, it would be interior defense. The Warriors well definitely clean up the sloppy play offensively over time, but that defense around the basket was exposed a bit in that half, and I think that could be one potential long-term weakness.

Yup... But from a defensive stand point porz was bad without Lopez in the lineup last year.... People were saying that losing Lopez means nothing and he held porz back...

They're for sure missing Bogut. Just a necessary evil of the signing. Zaza has been worse than replacement level in the preseason (and through that half), so it's an issue for them. But hey, it's no fun if they're stacked EVERYWHERE.

Nah.. Pop doesn't like to mess with the bench chemistry. It's why he started Anderson tonight instead of Manu. Even when Parker was out a couple years back, he would start 3rd stringer Corey Joseph and keep Patty coming off the bench.

Parker plays within the pace of the starters, slower style. Patty and the 2nd unit like to get up and down the court. It kinda fits... I do think though he will close games w/Patty if need be

They'll be fine with Parker, and I suspect his mins will go down a bit this year. He still can be a floor general out there, and set guys up. Early on he was getting in the paint and getting open looks for other guys, so he can still do some things.

Defensively, he is who he is. But fortunately for him he's got good defenders around him. Patty may end up playing equal or more mins than him, but Parker fits with the starters and their style of play. This game is a bit different than most will be. Many times Kawhi will be the ball handler, and Parker will be more of a spot up shooter (which he's really gotten good at)

The shot blockers are there in the rookie center and McGee both 6'11 and up but their just lower on the depth chart than Zaza and West and Green sees minutes at center too. They will be used just as the season goes on, Kerr uses everyone, and for match ups. Hopefully the rook pans out he looks like he could be ezeil for us.

Yea the spurs are probably the only bad matchup for the warriors... I think they will route anyone else in the playoffs... The spurs getting Gasol is going to be massive.

Lillard might very well make a run for MVP this year if Portland can make the playoffs... Dude is unstoppable

As history shows he's gotta be an HCA team and borderline legit contender though, not just make the playoffs. He's a decent long-shot pick but I'm sticking with Harden. I think Houston flirts with HCA and his numbers are going to be through the roof.

Let's see:

Duncan's gone.
Parker is old.
Gino is old.
Pop is there.

If one thing has been consistent, it's Pop's presence. Dude just knows how to play basketball.

He and RC know how to find the right pieces. That trade for Leonard/Hill is what gave this franchise new life. They scout well, draft well, and are patient.

Pop's ability to adapt his players to todays game is just remarkable

That block was gangster. I have no clue why Curry didn't do his patented fake-layup stop. He underestimated Simmons' length.

I'm starting to think Curry needs to change how he lays the ball up. It's way too predictable. He's letting guys chase it down every time by trying to take his time.

See... I am actually sad the warriors will lose... I want them to win 75 games again... They will likely lose just enough to where they can rest players often and not have curry/green/klay and others dead by the 2nd round of the playoffs... Durant makes them a more dangerous team come playoff time but now they could be rested and that is insane.

San Antonio is looking great right now. I love the additions of Gasol and Lee, they will both fit in nicely.

Still, even down 20 I'm not counting the Warriors out. These guys can score 20 points in like 4 minutes.

Let me be clear... Klay for Noel is dumb and an overpay on the warriors part but it makes them a far better team and promises a championship just about. Noel would fit perfectly on a godly level and Durant/Curry gets more shots... It is a Durant like fit for the warriors.

well it would probably be more so Klay for Noel and a first round pick from us... Something like the lakers pick which is much more fair... Noel really really improves their team.
