    It doesn’t matter if they were injured this season they’ll be injured next season too…. every team thibs coaches he runs into the ground and is full of injuries

    People forget that Giannis was hurt. Embiid was hurt. You can’t say if the Knicks were healthy without saying if the Bucks or Sixers were healthy….

    Knicks fans want to pretend health ruined their season like Embiid, Giannis and Dame didn’t help their path greatly

    How many rings does Mad Dog have? Is he a Hall of Famer? Don’t think so. If Mr. Gritter, the epitome of toughness in basketball is on board with a Knicks repeat, I’m with KG all day. Until this team fails due to lack of talent(s) and not by dystopian bad luck, don’t mess with that crazy chemistry these boys have

    Listen the Knicks aren’t coming close to sniffing the Larry O’Brien for generations to come. 51 years as we stand, in fact the Knicks technically own 0 of those trophies, back in the 70’s it was still the Walter A Brown trophy.

    2008 Celtics won the chip with their PG Rondo being only 6’1”.

    The Knicks are in Cancun trying to enjoy their vacation and ESPN can’t stop talking about them smh

    Run it back. Absolutely. We all want to see what they can do when healthy.

    This is going to be sound byte for Brunson in a year lmao . I see it now

    Knicks would have still lost. They went 6 games vs a banged up sixers. Then went 7 games vs an average pacers. Knicks are a solid team, but nothing more. 🍵 🫖

    So 2 small players have done it, but apparently no, it cant be done again if there is a small guard who can do it is Jalen Brunson, that clown have no clue what he is talking about. KG, SAS and Austin are right.

    We still talking about the Knicks?

    Knicks adding a washed PG or Klay would be awful.
