@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.

The Warriors tried to trade Steph like 5 times because he was hurt a lot in the beginning. But nobody wanted him so they got real lucky that they kept him. People are quick to forget that because he now has 3 rings.

“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.

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.
