@Matthew Frost in his prime he is a top 3 scorer. He was definitely a top 5 player for a couple of stretches years ago.

Molly and Stephen are lacking respect for max. They straight up rude. I h8 defending the white guy here lol but Stephen a sucks up to people he sees as above him and disrespects people he deems are below him in status. Max please man just leave the money isn’t worth forsaking yourself.

“Kyrie and KD will REGRET not signing with the knicks”. Nobody wants to play for the knicks bud. That’s just a paycheck for some players who are beyond their years and want to eat good food in the area.

I don’t get Max’s Zion longevity comments. Like he’s implying the guy won’t last 6 seasons. There is no indication of that. When he talks about any other young player, does he mention the fact that they might not be healthy 6 years from now? Zion has barely missed any games this season, if any at all.

I've worked in NYC and I've lived in California. NYC is good for anyone until about 24 or so. After that its no more cold. Out of here, traded in my snow shovel for sunshine. NYC is good for under 25yrs old or so. Dealing with millions of people , driving in NYC and Jersey and snow is not so fun . If there ever is a city that is the matrix movie I would say its NYC.

Knicks fans can’t be happy if they can’t attend the games there. And watch Zion in a empty house ... Also I could see the big three of Duke come to NYK. RJ, Zion and Cam.

We ain't waiting seven years for Zion. He can mob over in four years after his Rookie contract is up or he can watch as the Knicks ascend to championship contenders in four-five years.

The Knicks have a fun exciting and team oriented culture this year. They are becoming a destination again. They're a playoff team with a ton of draft picks and the lowest team salary in the league.
