of near historic proportion on BBI (got to think it rivals even the most contentious Eli threads) was fascinating to go through, from disbelief, denial, rage, outrage, etc. to a more even handed evaluation of the outcomes once it hit home that KP (once unassailable as the Knicks' Saviour) was done with NYKs.

Question is which came first, chicken or egg, Perry et al. shopping him or KP and his team concluding he would sign a QO at best and then look elsewhere? At this point it doesn't matter, but the answer to that question will fascinate many.

And many will continue to focus on how could KD swap a dream franchise for this one...and how does he cope/perform in that new environment, if it comes to pass? Does Perry indeed have a magic wand big enough to neuter Dolan and Mills?

Trade = thread. Whoops.
I saw the scroll on ESPN  
Chris684 : 2/2/2019 5:31 pm : link
said the Pels did not think the Lakers first offer for AD was worth a response or a counteroffer lol.

Hilarious.

We can only hope the Pelicans/Davis (and his Dad) keep sticking it to LA and Boston.

This is setting up to be the most wild Knicks offseason ever.

Draft lottery
Potential AD sweepstakes
Potential number1 overall/top draft pick
Courtship of multiple max players

Gonna be fun.

I wonder if Perry talked to the Pelicans about AD and they wanted draft picks more than anything. Remember once the Pelicans trade AD, they are in a total rebuild so they have to acquire as many draft picks as possible. The Knicks can theoretically give the Pelicans 5 first round picks from 2019 to 2023 and 3 first round picks from 2019 to 2021. IMO the Knicks picks, especially this one (which could turn into Zion, RJ or Ja Morant) are more valuable to the Pelicans than 2 or 3 good but not great young Lakers players

It might be a dream franchise to you or I, but it doesn't mean it was for him.

He's close friends with Luka Doncic, and Dirk has been something of a mentor for KP since they met. I think he's fine.

If you get KD, AD, Kyrie...no other "assets" needed for 4 years. You can fill that roster with the right imperfect 2nd rounders and vet minimums and be a legit eastern conference contender.

The way he's behaved post-trade certainly makes me feel a lot better about the deal. He's a petulant child who continues to bad mouth the organization after he's dealt. Not to mention, his first public message post trade was a gif of him and Luka, not thanking the fans or acting in anyway with class.

KP is literally still just a kid, but I don’t mind having Dallas now wait for his maturity to come.
People need to stop referring to KP as a kid. He’s not.  
PhiPsi125 : 2/3/2019 10:15 am : link
KP is 23 years old. He’s an adult. An immature, douchey adult.

Some people don’t grow out of being a dick. Sometimes they are just a dick. KP is one of them and I hope his leg falls off.

It was clear that the Knicks were never going to be a top team with KP because I don’t think that KP was going to draw any star players on his own. This is a risky move but one that could really pay off. And if now, what are we really losing? More disappointment?

For all the pissing and moaning about this “shitty franchise” and having no shot at big FAs because they all think the Knicks are a joke...star players seem to talk pretty highly about playing in and against NY [Knicks]. And they all seem to want to get their “garden moment”. I think the image of the Knicks/MSG is fine among players. The NBA is different these days and we just need to be in the right situation for them to come. We were almost there in 2010 but not quite. Hopefully we get there this time.

Agree 100% on your point about the franchise. Can’t fully trust anything they do or say.
Well, Fizdale flew to Latvia to kiss KP's ass for a week  
bceagle05 : 2/3/2019 11:16 am : link
and KP proceeded to throw Fiz under the bus with that Instagram post of him sprinting - that's when KP lost me. I'm not gonna act like a jilted ex now that KP is gone, but we all shared the same concerns about him regarding his durability and attitude. Once the initial shock wore off, I had no issue with this.
I find it very troubling that the Knicks blocked the Daily News

Amazingly, there are people on BBI more critical if the Giants than thru are the Knicks. Absolutely baffling.

Wait, KP continues to act like a child (seems like a nice guy) while the FO looks to be finally on the right track...but we are supposed to give KP the benefit of the doubt on his way out while he continues to throw shade at the team? Is that your take?

Please tell me where the Knicks have wronged KP at all over his time here? I mean, we obviously don’t know everything that happens behind the scenes but normally we’d hear something. Especially with how slimy and dirty the NY media is. What have the Knicks done to KP so bad that makes it okay to act like an entitled jerk who undermines the team? And then to demand a trade like he’s some superstar when he hasn’t even touched the court in a year?

Sorry, I’m not going kill the team when the FO seems to be doing the right things while the immature player barks on the way out.

This does have a different feel to it then prior years for the Knicks (like the Miami stuff was going on behind the scenes well ahead of it coming together) but yes we need to reserve judgement until it actually happens.

There’s more to the story. It’s not really a “choose your side” deal. I loosely know a player who was on the Knicks a couple of years ago (friend of a friend type deal) who said that KP changed a lot from the guy he was when he came to the team. He would argue with and not listen to coaches and thought he knew better. He was also partying more and putting in less work in the game. This guy told me that the former had a lot to do with Melo’s influence as they were close and the latter with him hanging out with Shumpert and JR early on. I thought with those guys gone and the new regime he’d move past that and grow into his role as the leader of the team but that’s clearly not what happened.

This sucks to hear but it is not at all surprising. Another funny part of this is that Noah was sold as a great character guy for the team when we signed him and then apparently "partied too much." It's hard to undersell what a disaster the Knicks franchise is. I'll be thrilled if we can pull off signing KD and admit it is certainly possible but for the life of me I can't understand how anyone could have any faith in the front office. Perry seems good but Dolan is still the owner. And Mills is still the guy that paid Hardaway so much that we needed to package our best young player in like 20 years to get rid of him. It is definitely more likely that we find a way to screw up any plan than do something great.

Whys that?

Does a newspaper have any responsibility to produce a quality product?

It's not like they're freezing out Bondy because  
Strahan91 : 2/3/2019 5:09 pm : link
of harsh coverage. All of the other beat guys are very critical of the Knicks. This has to do with Bondy's insistence on making things up to stir the pot clearly. Hell, he said the day of the trade that KP has been healthy enough to play but didn't trust the Knicks not to botch his comeback. Only a day later, the Mavs made it clear he's still recovering and Cuban said he's unlikely to play at all this year. This type of thing happens all the time...
My initial response to the news of the deal  
Matt M. : 2/3/2019 9:12 pm : link
was shock and disgust; I really like Porzingis. But, the more I think about it, the more I like the deal. First, they likely would have had to pay him a max deal coming off an injury. Second, he has yet to play a full season. Third, they get 2 1st round picks, and neither is lottery protected. Lastly, they now can push for 2 FAs.

One thing to think about though...at 31 next year, Durant will actually be 6 years older than Melo was when they dealt for him. If they actually land him and another, they have to push to win right away. And, I don't want Irving.

Why would they “work perfectly well together”? He could co exist with LeBron who does a better job of sharing the ball than Durant. Kyrie and Durant are both scorers who need the ball. The reason Durant and Steph work well together is b/c it was Stephs team before he arrived and he doesn’t have the on court attitude the Kyrie does

Not all media should be held to the same standard. Barstool sports and the NY times arent the same animal, and some reporters are legitimate professionals and some are not. The wall st journal, times, Yahoo and ESPN can all still cover the knicks.

We can have a discussion about the fact that there is a legitimate effort to undercut real freedom of the press in the country, but this ain't it.

with Spencer Pearlman of The Stepien, an NBA draft website. Biggest news was about 15 minutes or so into the discussion - he said he had one source in Golden State and one in New York tell him that Durant is coming to the Knicks. Neither source works with the teams, but the Golden State source has provided accurate info in the past and the New York source is someone he trusts.

Regarding draft prospects, he said Zion is the only one who'd make his first tier in last year's draft (Jaren Jackson and Luka) - none of the other prospects would make second tier in last year's draft. He said Texas PF Jaxson Hayes may rise into the top five discussion by season's end. Maybe a KP replacement if we drop?

He closed with two thoughts on Perry. He's a big believer in developing relationships, and figures KP was jettisoned before his attitude became too much of a problem. He suspects they're dragging things out with Kanter through the trade deadline because the players know he's a clown, just like most fans do - no fear of him infecting anyone else. Also, Perry's super organized and will have Plans A-Z this offseason. Pearlman said Knicks fans shouldn't worry about paying top dollar to non-max guys, unless KD demands they get the best player they can as a running mate.
