Oh Boy!


So apparently Carmelo Anthony reached out to Kristaps Porzingis and had a nice conversation on Saturday. How sweet.

I wonder if him being ripped for being such a sucky leader had anything to do with it.

I don't care what kind of white washing the team, Anthony and his friends in the media do after the fact Knicks fans none of it matters. Let's see the guy rebound and make assists in addition to scoring next season if he really wants to do something new to help the team win now.

A Plea to Kristaps Porzingis:Stay Away From Carmelo Anthony

Kristaps, may I call you Kristaps? Kristaps, if you you want to succeed in New York and stay a happy and successful New York Knickerbocker for the majority of your career you must heed this warning: Stay Away From Carmelo Anthony.

Pay no attention to him. Do not adopt his mentality as a teammate and do not make him your mentor. Now let me explain why.

Moments after you were drafted Anthony's first communication to the world were messages filled with negative innuendos.

The first tweet was:"What's understood doesn't need to be spoken upon." Now what kind of fucking shit is that?

He couldn't even muster up enough class to even fawn being a good teammate and welcoming you to the city and the Knicks. He acted like a straight up bitch and a child.

He could have said 'I don't know much about the young man but he had great workouts, I trust Phil Jackson and our scouting staff and welcome both young men with open arms and I will help to make them as successful as I can'.

But, did you get that Kristaps? You got a guy who can't even keep his displeasure in house. He had to display all his immaturity and lack of leadership for the world to see.

Anthony then went on to send out the hashtag "#TheFutureIsNow". We both can easily interpret this to mean that he is the team and the Knicks had better start worrying about right now when he is the star and focal point. What class, what a mentor.

No Kristaps, I am not saying be disrespectful to Anthony or anyone else in your organization. You have lots of work to do and if you displayed such immaturity in response you will be vilified even before you step on the court. However, what I am saying is keep in mind that Anthony won't be around MSG when you are at the peak of your career so don't allow his behavior to influence you. Just look at the other guys Anthony has mentored.

First it was JR Smith who was originally his side kick in Denver who learned under Anthony that he can do whatever he wants no matter how crazy or disruptive as long as he scores every once in awhile.

Then there was Iman Shumpert who had a great deal of potential but was more concerned with pleasing Anthony instead of his coaches and working on his craft. He should be a much better shooter and ball handler at this point of his career and I firmly believe that he isn't because he acquiesced those skills to Anthony and Smith. His mentors and big brother.

Lastly there is Tim Hardaway Jr. who looked like he was really going to be something special but once he got under Anthony's wing his game suffered and now all three of those guys are on other teams.

Kris, Anthony is not and should not be your mentor. Keep him at arms length, do not allow him in your inner circle or influence you with his bull shit.

Look to Phil Jackson, contact Patrick Ewing and Charles Oakley to have bonds with respected big men of old. Hell even talk to Clyde Frazier and soak up his wisdom. But whatever you decide to do stay away from Anthony. You don't need to absorb any of his entitled acting, poor leadership skills having tom foolery.

It hurts your hearts

I thought that I'd be in bed by now but I have stayed up listening to radio hosts and Knicks fans crying and dying over Porzingis being selected with the fourth pick. It's fucking hilarious.

No one knows what any of the guys selected tonight are going to turn into.

Some players we don't expected much from will become stars and others we expect to be future stars will be bums. That's just how it is.

If you are really a fan of Phil Jackson and the Knicks the only thing you should really be concerned with is hoping that Phil has the pieces in place to develop Porzingis to the peak of his ability. But I think I have figured out what is really burning peoples asses.

These people are stuck in the paradigm that the Knicks are supposed to win with Carmelo Anthony. The fans are angry because they don't believe that Porzingis is ready physically to help Anthony make a run for the title and he's not. So, what should that tell you Knicks fans?

It should tell you that Phil doesn't think that he can win anything with Carmelo Anthony so he is building a franchise for the years when Carmelo is no longer the star here. Phil is not going to push his chips in on molding something that Anthony might be able to succeed with. Subconsciously you guys know this and it hurts your hearts because Jackson's plans don't seem to include Anthony.

Phil didn't take Kaminsky or any of the other "NBA Ready Guys" because he sees a bigger upside for Porzingis when Anthony is no longer the face of the franchise. Suck it.

The best thing for the Knicks is to trade Anthony so that Phil can be completely free to shape the team to his 60 million dollar vision.

That kills you fans doesn't it? I am enjoying this so much.

I told'ya

"With the 4th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft the New York Knicks select Kristapas Porzingis."

Knicks will never do it

There are rumors that the Detroit Pistons would like to trade Brandon Jennings for Tim Hardaway Jr.

If Jennings can be proved to be 100 percent healthy then it is a no brainer and should be done in a New York minute. Which means that the Knicks will never do it because they aren't that bright an organization.

A friend asked if the Knicks should trade Carmelo back to Denver for their 7th and 57th pick. If Denver threw in Kenneth Faried I'd do it but the Knicks would never. James Dolan will go to the grave before admitting that the trade to make Anthony a Knick was a mistake and trading him now would be just that.

Carmelo will suck that last nickel out of his current contract in a Knick uniform even if it means the team not becoming as good as it could be and that is why I never will root for this team again in life.

Knicks are going to select Kristaps Porzingis

I never told you guys this but I have a very close high up source on 33rd street. I will NEVER reveal his or her name only to say that they've eaten barbeque at Dolan's Long Island mansion before.

I have it on very good notice that the Knicks are going to select Kristaps Porzingis with the first pick in the draft.

Phil Jackson envisions a future for the Knicks that has Anthony playing a very limited role in a couple of years due to his age and injuries and believes that Porzingis will be the face of the team for the next decade.

There is also the possibility of a coaching change if Jackson can convince Dolan to eat Fisher's contract.

Everything told to me could all be bullshit to throw me off and maybe the 76'ers who seem only motivated by not allowing the Knicks to have what they want instead of building a will rounded team. We shall see.
