This topic is bullshit KD ain't moving from Oracle and if he does move its Clippers who team looks best for him to go to, but i hope he stays and wins two more rings with GS.

Will has the right to condescend yet he plays fair and square with his verbal skill to kill Max. Molly is just condescending Max on top of Will's argument. I wonder how Max ego could handle her attitude after all these years.

Most of y'all don't understand, 1. KP was out , no matter what the KNICKS wanted to do. The damage was done during the Phil Jackson era. 2. KP not only said he wasn't going to resign and but he also threatened to go back to Europe for the rest of the season , which would have took away any leverage the KNICKS would have had in a trade for KP..... 3. KP threatened to tell other players not to come to new York. WHAT ELSE COULD THE KNICKS HAVE DONE, IF KP WAS UNWILLING TO GIVE THE NEW KNICKS FRONT OFFICE A CHANCE TO RIGHT THE SHIP? KEEP IN MIND THE NEW KNICKS FRONT OFFICE HAS DONE A GREAT JOB THIS YEAR ..... We have cap space for 2 max contracts, 7 1st round picks in the next 4 years, plus a stable of talented young players . They might even get ZION ..... What else could the KNICKS have done?

This was a really bad take by Max lol. How doesn’t he get they couldn’t get KD, Kyrie, & KP w/o ridding of Hardaway & Lee contracts. Needed to pair KP w/ bad contracts for a team to accept them. Very simple.

Kyrie and Jimmy B is fine and good because they can draft Zion possibly . But they never should traded Porzingis🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️

Kp didn't love new york matter fact he most likely never got over being booed out the building on draft night. Knowing liberal new york they probably saw a white guy get drafted and assumed it was his privilege or whatever nutty conspiracy theories are being pushed by the crazy communist perfessor on campus that week lmao
Bill Hove

But hey new york fans weren't really wrong kp didn't do anything for that team except avg. 16 points they didn't make the playoffs with him i don't even think they won 30 games with him so maybe the boos were justified

Max you keep looking at the mistakes they made in the past that led to porzingis wanting to leave; so in the CURRENT situation they made the best move the could. Obviously what they did up to that point was idiotic; we’re talking about what they had to do NOW to remedy a bad situation!
Jeff Stevens
Jeff Stevens 6 months ago
So the Knicks are dumb for making this move. Sure. They traded away a 7”3 talented crybaby who wasn’t patient enough to let the young talent around him develop, who’s never played a full season since he got into the league. And all they got was a 2nd year player that’s a solid pg, the most cap space in the league, and TWO first round draft picks. Yup. Completely dumb. I hope they draft Zion and he yams it on him. This isn’t like Anthony Davis’s situation where he’s given 7 years to the pelicans and they couldn’t put a solid team around him, this is a guy who can’t stay on the floor, and is too impatient to be “the man” of any team, let alone the one team that any star player would immediately gain immortal status to the public if they simply contend again. Dallas will see the best in him but only because he’ll be playing second fiddle to Luka.
