Through France's first three games in the FIBA World Cup,
Frank Ntilikina is shooting 54.5% from 3-point territory (6-for-11) and is a perfect 6-for-6 from the free-throw stripe.

Yo mantengo que en un equipo hecho y bien entrenado aporta bastante y hace carrera en NBA.

Ese es el objetivo del comentario, de coña y crear debate. No te lo tomes de forma tan seria todo
Los Ntilikinalivers sois irreductibles, nunca desfalleceis en los intentos de ver brotes verdes en su juego
The New York Knicks have voided their verbal agreement with Kris Wilkes.
Wilkes missed Summer League with the Knicks due to an illness and is not considered healthy enough for camp later this month.
The Knicks remain interested in Wilkes for later this season.
Wilkes went undrafted out of UCLA and then agreed to a Two-Way deal the next day with the Knicks.
Ahora a las dos hay otra buena oportunidad de verlo contra Lituania, a ver si sigue con la buena senda.
With the basketball, the way Phil [Jackson] had talked, and with [Joakim Noah] and [Carmelo Anthony], I really thought we were going to do something.
But when it came to the basketball, I knew right away that we were s–t.
I played through it, 60-some games, but I could tell right away it wasn’t the season I was expecting. Lot of different priorities. Melo’s there. You know how he plays. Can’t change that. That’s what I realized being there. And he’s a great dude; I loved being around Melo. He ain’t gonna rub you the wrong way. Great dude, great spirit, great person, great teammate.
I don’t say much, but Phil could tell. Phil was telling me to be patient. He said I had a lot going on with the trial and all. He was honest with me. Everything he talked to me about, he was honest, I’ll say that.
Our relationship was a little weird, though. He was cool the whole time I was there, but he wanted that $60 million he was owed by the Knicks.
As for me, I liked Phil, but, come on, man, you’re still running the triangle? He was still forcing them to run it. I’m a slasher, a driving point guard. The triangle is okay, but not for the personnel we had. Melo couldn’t play that way, didn’t want to.
I felt like being there we never did the extra things to win the game, make the hustle play or the extra pass. We played numerous games where we’d hit a point where it just all fell apart. We had an alright start, playing around .500 ball into December, but you could tell it was getting worse. We knew it was only a matter of time.
Coming in, especially in the East, a team like that you know can compete, a team with that talent. They were trying to do it for Melo; he didn’t want to start over so they wanted to get the veterans for him. But he can’t play with a lot of guys, he’s gotta be the main guy. Supposed to be a top-five team. You should just fall into winning games with that much talent, but we were struggling to stay in it at halftime. It was frustrating, but at the same time all of it was out of our control. Jo and I used to talk about that all the time. Phil wanted us to play a certain way and we had to listen. What can you do?
Early on in the season, Phil really didn’t force anything. But as time went on, it converted all the way to the triangle and we played through that almost the whole year. For the team we had, I think deep down [coach Jeff] Hornacek really wanted to play that more up-tempo style. But being in that position, being a new head coach, having to listen to the front office, it’s hard on that coach to say something. He’s moved around, he’d been fired in Phoenix. I guess Hornacek got tired of hearing about it, having meetings about it, so he just said, “We’re gonna do it and see.”
Steve Mills is talking all this black dude stuff with me, like we’re brothers and all this. He’s saying that s–t, making me think it’s going to make us closer. Come on, be yourself.
No le falta razón sobre el equipo pero esas cosas no justifican su mierda de temporada con entradas a canastas kamikazes o tiros sin sentido.
Los líderes de aquel vestuario eran Rose, Melo y Noah. No hase falta desir nada más...
New Knick Julius Randle isn't going to make any big predictions about the upcoming season. And he's not going to make any bold statements about what he will or won't do in his first year as a Knick.
What Randle is promising Knicks fans in Year One is simple:
"I'm just going to bring it every night, man," he said in an interview with SNY at his backpack giveaway at Rucker Park on Saturday. "I'm not going to promise stats, I'm not gonna promise anything. Just bring it every night and do everything I can to help my team win. And I'm going to get better as a player. You're never going to have to question my commitment, my effort. You're never going to have to question where my heart is. It's for this team, it's for this city, and that's what it's about."
On expectations about where the Knicks fit in the East this season:
"I think we're going to be fine. I think we're going to be great. I'm not going to talk too much about what we're gonna do. We're just gonna do it. But I think we're going to be good. And we have a very deep team, a lot of guys who can play. We'll let the media and outsiders let the expectations be what they want them to be. But internally as a group, we know where we want to do. And the only way we're gonna do that is to work. So I'm just excited to get to there."
On playing with Mitchell Robinson:
Bobby Portis said in an interview with the New York Post that he expects to come off the bench behind Robinson this season. So Randle should play alongside Robinson regularly this season. He's looking forward to it. "I'm excited man, that kid is going to be amazing," Randle said. During his free agency meeting with the Knicks, Randle recalls telling Fizdale, "'When we played I was like, 'who is this kid?' Cause every time I went to the basket he was coming out of nowhere. I'm like, 'Yo, what's going on?'" Randle said with a grin. "I had no clue who he was. He has so much potential now he's only scratching the surface and I'm excited to get, on the court with him."
On the Knicks' underdog mentality:
Several new Knicks said in interviews that they feel the team is being overlooked by fans and media.
Does Randle agree with that underdog mentality? "Yeah, I can see, I can see how as a group we can view that but I don't really care. I'm not worried about what somebody expects of us. I know the group that we have and that's what's important. It's not what somebody here is saying… it's one through 15 and it's us being locked in, buying into what coach says and committing to each other. If you're playing a lot or if you're not playing a lot, if you're scoring a lot or not scoring a lot: what do you bring to the game to help us win? That's what's important."
On his 3-point shooting:
Randle shot a career-high 34.4 percent from beyond the arc last season with the Pelicans on 2.7 attempts per game. New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry encouraged him to shoot from the perimeter and the results were encouraging. It's easy to see Fizdale asking Randle to do the same, as the Knicks don't have a ton of perimeter shooting. Randle says his strong showing from deep last season was the result of having a green light from Gentry. "From high school on I've always been able to do that. It was just all about opportunity. Sometimes you have to sacrifice and I got to new Orleans and had a great opportunity to do that. I'm just trying to build on that.
So obviously this offseason I've been doing a lot of that, trying to build on that and become an even better 3-point shooter. I know what my bread and butter is at the same time though, I'm not going to leave that."
Per @AlexKennedyNBA, The Knicks worked out BIG 3 and Drew League sensation, Frank Nitty. Nitty participated in a 5-on-5 scrimmage with the Knicks against other players, including former Minnesota guard Dupree McBrayer and Georgetown guard Trey Dickerson.
Pretty obvious starting 5:
I THINK the first sub is Mitch out, to preserve fouls and stamina, and Knox in, with Randle sliding to C and Morris to PF. Fiz is drooling to play Randle as a small ball 5 and Randle and Morris get max minutes this way
Next easy substitutions
Perry has a history of making sure PG's he brings in, play. Also, Payton is just better all around than Frank.
Now the harder part. Obviously now Randle and Morris need some rest. (Also, the order of these subs can change etc, it's just a guestimate)
I say Portis subs in for "Randle" for a few minutes. I think Gibson dresses most games but is really around "just in case" or for very particular matchups. I put Randle in quotes as since Portis can function as a 4/5, he may sub in for Randle, but then see below.
When Morris goes out, Randle comes back in.
Randle and Morris will be #1 and #2 in minutes by FAR.
10th and 11th men will be 2 out of: Dotson, Ellington, Iggy, Frank. Whoever it is, won't play much, but it'll be the "10th man" who at least gets some semi regular minutes. Pretty easy to see team will be looking for 3 point shooting here. While that obviously would seem to mean Ellington, I figure Dotson or Iggy have a chance to edge him out. Both SG and SF are already two players deep, and RJ might see minutes at SF. 2 and 3 can be somewhat interchangeable, I'd guess Dotson. Ellington still dresses as 13th man.
Frank and Iggy should go to the G-League.
Coach K has been invited to attend Knicks Training Camp
"He will be surrounded by a number of really secure basketball players which will allow him to grow. And those guys will be better if R.J. grows. And they know that because they’ve been on teams that have had really good players.” [h/t Adam Zagoria, Forbes Magazine]

Imagino que la influencia de Phil sería la misma cuando el equipo andaba cuarto o quinto en Diciembre que después cuando el equipo empieza a acumular derrotas; yo ese año veo más influyente los problemas físicos que empezó a tener Porzingis en esas fechas que el triángulo de Phil. Y nos guste o no, podremos echar pestes de PJ, pero Rose, Melo, Noah... Han salido de aquí y no han mejorado el rendimiento que dieron en los Knicks, por lo que no era un problema de Phil, el triángulo, Hornacek, el entorno o si la abuela fumaba, es que eran jugadores ya venidos a menos que se creían mucho más de lo que eran. Y que conste, que yo quería que siguiese Rose a un precio asequible, con todos sus defectos, sigo considerando que es un jugador que te puede aportar cosas, y para lo que hemos tenido después en el puesto de base (Mudiay, Burke, DSJ...) lo mismo me da que me da lo mismo.
