I think the knicks have nothing to worry about, Jalen is a baller and still learning to play with RJ plus Randle is getting back to his productive ways it's just a shame about Mitchell getting hurt but hey... we have DRose so iam happy

Typical Knicks...10-13, porous defense, going nowhere. Think Jalen Brunson's regretting his decision to come to this dumpster fire of a franchise?

They've won three straight and are playing much better defense. If they continue to make the commitment to 'D', they can make the play-in tournament. Whoopee....

Iam taking back my Randle/RJ comments haha

Looks like we are developing a big 3 there in NY, Brunson was been an off season steal so far

Now 8, and playing much better half court defense. They need to improve the home record.

I thought the Knicks overpaid for Brunson. He's been worth it and more. We haven't had high I.Q. play at the point since Clyde & Mark Jackson. Marbury was a knucklehead and Kidd was done.

You can definitely make an All-Star case for Jalen Brunson. He's been better than I expected.

I think there were alot of all star snubs this year for sure, I would of loved to see Jalen there but he wasn't the worst snub,not that iam a James Harden fan but his numbers and the Sixers record surly should of counted on the coaches eyes when selecting

Last night's win against Philly was probably their best of the season so far. It's just so frustrating NY can't land a superstar.

Josh Hart's been a welcome addition. Like what I'm seeing so far;

Jalen Brunson named East player of the month and just deserved and I think we might see Randle picking up east player of the week here too

Knicks are ONE superstar wing player from being an elite Eastern Conference team, right up there with Boston, Milwaukee & Philly. Looking forward to tonight's match-up in Boston. TBH, Knicks-Celtics haven't had a heated rivalry since the early 70s, when Boston had Havlicek, Jo-Jo & Big Red.

UPDATE:
It got a little hairy without Brunson to direct the offense, but an incredible game by IQ, and to think, he was the subject of trade rumors.
Like Clyde said, these current Knicks are hard-nosed and playing with grit. That's what we want to see and it's the mark of a Thibs-coached team. Let's keep this group together.

I was really impressed with the knicks heart and hustle coming back to beat Denver yesterday, it's all starts and ends with Brunson and the addition of Josh Hart has been amazing he really plays the right way and as if he's 6 inches taller too rebounding

Truly one of the greats. To echo a sentiment from Bill Russell's passing last year, that generation is getting up there in age, and we're starting to lose them. It's a reminder to appreciate and pay respect to the pioneers and previous generations, especially while they're alive. RIP.

I do love Randle being a knick same with Robinson but both of them need to get there head in the game, it was the same with Randle last year he played himself out of the game and ultimately the knicks out of the playoffs

Exactly, getting tired of Randle's whining and pouting. Just man-up and play!

I think he's a fantastic player but first year knick is definitely more of a leader than Randle
