    Post NYK OTA Thread

    All things NYK OTA...

    Tom Thibodeau and his new coaching staff begin debuting their much-hyped ability to teach and develop Knicks players for the next three weeks...

    I'm really hoping we can use this OTA to get DSJ and Knox on track. Could these OTA'S impact what Thibs and the crew do draft and FA wise?

    Definitely. Thibs and Front Office have some tough decisions to make.

    Thibs who is relatively straightforward, praised RJ Barrett's conditioning, preparation. And that's good enough for now.

    Wish we could get some, even if pre-recorded/edited, inter-squad games on MSG...

    Don't think there's any other programming they can currently air that would get better ratings from starved fans like us...

    Thibs does seem to be an old school type that would probably think this kind of public display would give other teams an "advantage" though...

    I read somewhere that Mitch had to leave camp due to personal issues. If true, hopefully he can get back and take advantage this time to improve. Team practices started yesterday.

    I don't think Mitchell Robinson dealing with personal concerns will be a problem. These workouts are voluntary.

    I do think, it's important for the young Knicks to build chemistry because they haven't played together at the same time for very long.

    As long as Dennis Smith and RJ are there, I'm good. I'm really rooting for Dennis Smith. The kid has too much talent to fizzle out like this. If this coaching crew could get him on the right track, that changes the talent level on this team immensely.

    DSJ was who I wanted on draft night in 2017 at 8. That said his shot is currently broken and his defense is pretty much as bad as it gets. Plus he was always a bit of a questionable decision maker.

    That last part I think can be fixed. The shot and the defense are my big concerns with him.
