Dedicated to the Knick fans who torment themselves thinking/hoping the Knicks could trade for Victor Oladipo, Kelly Oubre, Terry Rozier or Bradley Beal.

Some Random Thoughts:

1. No Elf: Late in the 4th against Golden State, Elfrid Payton tripped over his own hook shaped slippers. He'll be sitting this one out. As fans we get a look at how the Knicks play without the Elf. RJ Barrett might actually get more looks and touches?

2. Who steps into the driver's seat: Derrick Rose sounds like the most logical choice. Immanuel Quickley might see more action. Jared Harper chip in a few. Luckily with Julius Randle playing a point forward, this loss can be off set.

3. Frank who: Don't get too excited. This is an unconfirmed report. Last I heard, Frank Ntilikina was playing in the Knicks outdoor E-League on West 4th.

4. What if the Knicks drafted Tyrese Haliburton: 13.1 ppg, 49.5 FG%, 44.2 3P%, 81 FT%, 5.4 apg, 1.3 steals per game. If the Knicks took Haliburton and Immanuel Quickley, they might have drafted their back court of the future. We'll never known.

5. Spike Lee Boycott: Haven't seen Spike at the Garden yet. Hmm.

Should be a good game. Confident the Knicks will bounce back. Let's go Knicks!
