Maybe if he worked out when he was here he wouldn't have missed 1/3 of the games he was supposed to play in. I hate to say it but I hope he falls flat on his face with Dallas (He won't).

Sorry to say, but he is going to have a huge season, and this may be the worst trade we have ever made.

Actually, I hope he does have a huge season, because I still love the guy. It was actually KD who named him The Unicorn and implied he wanted to play next to him. I think the Knicks alienated both players with their bullshit.

Come on guys, those are during workout photos and the other picture is from two years ago (at 20 years old?).

Of course he's going to get bigger.

Yup, I keep reminding people that this has the potential to be the most pain this franchise has ever suffered.  Everyone mocks KP on twitter while they hype of Randle, but if KP reaches his potential on another team this is going to be BRUTAL.

Good luck to him. I am sure he will do fine in Dallas.

Only RJ can make the pain go away. Dennis Smith blowing up this year would also help!

As easy it is to blame KP for wanting to leave, you have to really look at the Knicks as an organization and why players don't want to play here. You look at how the Knicks treated Melo on his way out. You look at how the Knicks treated Charles Oakley (pillar of what it means to be a Knick). You look at how the Knicks have barely given Ewing an opportunity to be a part of the team in any aspect. Look at how the Knicks treated Phil Jackson (one of the greatest coaches of all time). Why would anyone in their right mind want to be a part of this?

Young players and guys on the cusp want to play here because of exposure. That's the only thing left that the Knicks can offer. If winning and greatness is in your DNA, I can't see why you'd want to stay.

This is fair..and RJ is the guy to change this.  If he pans out to be an all-star player, the Knicks need to figure out how to make him feel like the entire franchise is behind him.  Sounds like the Knicks were shopping KP behind his back when they win 17 games without him.

Airbrushed.... KP is not cut up and hard now. Even he says the camera caught a good angle. Yeah, he even said the camera caught a good angle.

BTW, check out the actual weight he is lifting.He should not have to activate all that muscle for that weight in two hands. At least that is my opinion.

You could be lifting 10 pounds on each side but your 30th rep is still going to burn.  It looks like he's curling 50 pounds there...20 reps at that weight will make anyone look jacked.

I mean I’m excited to see how RJ, Knox, DSJ, and Robinson develop. If the later three show improvement from last year, it could be an exciting team to watch at the very least. This would show me that this team is building the right way, but they have to commit to these young guys. If Ellington, Bullock, etc get significant playing time, I will stop watching.

This is where the team could get in trouble.  Chasing the 8th seed with Fizdale looking for wins is not the direction this team needs to take.  That core group needs to play 30+ every night regardless of record.

I can curl 50 pounds, it's not a lot of weight, especially for someone his size.  In the end, I wish him well.  As far as him being a top 5 or top 10 player, I still think it could go either way.

Right, I can curl it too...but if he's doing reps over heavy weights (building stamina/endurance) then it's not really light weight at all.  You can see videos of Lou Ferrigno struggling to curl 30 pounds before a meet because he had been doing reps all day trying to stay flexed.

Although this is all kind of silly when Durant is probably still smaller than KP in this picture and people cried when the Knicks didn't sign him (not me!). He sure looked like a top 5 player for the first two months of the 2017-2018 season, but he couldn't sustain that level.

He has to put up big numbers and they have to win.  Is that Dallas team really that good?  Tim Hardaway is probably their third best player, after that they don't have much.  They might win 30 in the west

Vegas has them tied as the 9th best team in the West, and that's healthy.
