    There is absolute nothing in mitch's game that is similar to Noah, not sure how you would compare them. Noah also was a college winner and already there anchored the defense of a florida team, was at time their second best passer and constantly playing in position. He was never a vertical center.

    Mitch barely played organized basketball, is all talent and athletics. He is also about flash, as you can see in his videos working on ball handling and three point shooting. He's a funny kid with enormous potential. He could be very well something like pre fat shawn kemp kind center or having a trajectory like Larry Sanders. As of today his skillset seems similar to Tyson Chandler or Capela, with more speed on defense.

    I'm curious how a coach like thibs shapes him and the other youngsters, but Noah shouldn't be a comparison.

    I more or less mean thibs can get him there obviously mitch is not the playmaker noah was

    But a young noah was athletic blocking everything and just a beast on defense

    Like you said mitch didnít play collage ball thibs can get that noah intensity out of him and i actually think mitch is very smart he just never had a coach like thibs to mold him

    True. Mitch didn't have much college ball at all. Having said that, the Thibs hire has me optimistic (for the first time in 20 seasons) that he can ascend and become the best player he can be...hopefully on the level of Noah but it's not a dealbreaker if he doesn't.

    The are both lean,long,very fast, relentless offensive rebounds, and high motor centers.

    Woodson made his own bed. Coming off the Knicks best season since the Bronze Age at 54-28, the Sweet Potato started off 3-13 with the same roster plus the addition of Andrea Bargnani, JR Smith showed up to practices high as a kite, Shumpert STOPPED working on his game, then Raymond Felton pleaded guilty to a gun charge and holding a woman against her will.
    Basically Woodson was fired because the Front Office didn't understand how a team which had the second best record in the Eastern Conference (the previous season) nose dived so quickly and unexpectedly.

    The truth is, Woodson was a victim of the players taking advantage of a good man trying to be both a father and a coach. Here's the thing. A coach isn't your best friend. He's the guy who is supposed to motivate you to be the BEST of you. Woodson coddled more than he challenged.

    I DO like the fact, he's back with the organization but not as Head Coach.

    Woody without proper vets was just as bad as any other coach in Knicks history.

    Woody had all the vets...

    He had Carmelo Anthony.

    He had Tyson Chandler who won Defensive Player of the Year.

    Amare Stoudemire before he lost a fight with a fire hydrant.

    He had JR Smith who had it together for one season.

    It lasted ONE season. That's it.

    Ian Begley was saying the other day Knicks were going to take a look at Gallo, CP, Wood, and Melo.

    CP would be great. He's still got enough game to be a very good PG and he will be a great mentor to younger guards.

    I'm not into Melo returning but Gallo could be interesting.

    You mustíve forgot about all the injuries during his last season and how strong they finished when everyone was healthy.

    Even if you take away the 54 win season, which doesnít make sense considering his success in Atlanta as well, he was still 55-51. Thatís not great, but not bad either. Letís check on how Pop has been doing without Kawhi and Duncan. Personnel matters for all coaches.

    Woody may have had some success in his two seasons with the Knicks.

    My issue with Woody was that after that great 2013 season, he totally regressed. What I mean is that the 2013 team was basically ahead of the curve - we had incredible spacing with shooters all over, and we played Melo at the 4. The next season, Woody basically refused to play Melo at the 4, repeatedly insisting, "The East is big." And we were terrible again because of it.
