Nobody has any space, and Phoenix spend 30m on Kelly Oubre.
Slightly more than I wanted but the two years balances it out. Most people won’t have watched much of his stint in Phoenix but he’s been quite good. He’s endeared himself to the fans which is something much needed in Phoenix.

Rubio/Jerome
Booker/T Johnson
Oubre/Bridges/C Johnson
Saric/Kaminsky
Ayton/Baynes

Not a playoff squad but that roster is significantly more balanced than previous versions.

As many as those who watch knicks games? :D
The Knicks appeal to a wide range of NBA fans mate.

Common Knicks fans obviously tune in, but we also appeal to those fans who have a need to watch a particular style of Power Forward play in the NBA matches they consume.

So that time when your most disliked player joins your team.

For starters I am glad we got rid of Paul for him, was worried we would trade the depth. Paul's contract was horrid given his rapid decline.

I honestly have no idea if this will be a disaster or not, if it is at least Russ will probably be easier to shift than Paul would have been. It's really up to Harden and Chucky, they have talent and some good guys around them. Do they want to win or pad stats.

I'm def ready for Russ to have the green light to brick even more 3's in the Rockets system and watch him off ball not moving a muscle while Harden does his iso thing.

At least they have history and are friends. Solid starting point at least. Although last time Harden was behind Russ in the pecking order and now that has flipped.
Yeah I agree. I think you've summed it up well in terms of it being a test of their priorities. I don't see it going well this time around.

Harden does his iso thing, Westbrook flies in for the offensive board... no one back on defense... disaster
