Although it wasn’t the offseason many long-suffering Knicks fans had in mind, some feel that they are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Instead of throwing long and expensive contracts at questionable players, the Knicks are cultivating for the future and saving their money. Can Leon Rose and Tom Thibodeau be the catalysts to bring the Knicks back to the playoffs?
SportsCastr News NBA’s Guillermo Kyosuke and Simeon Russell spent their stream once again discussing their favorite team. The stream’s topics included their thoughts on new coach, Tom Thibodeau, and how Frank Ntilikina can expand his already diverse skillset. The guys also looked ahead to the 2021 draft and what prospects the Knicks could target.
Frank Ntilikina is a name that has most Knicks fans divided. As discussed in countless SportsCastr streams, fans either love or hate Frank. The 22-year-old French guard is known for his athletic defense and his consistency behind the three point line.
Joining Frank in the backcourt will be newcomer Austin Rivers. Formerly with the Rockets, the son of Doc Rivers will attempt to establish himself with yet another team. After finding chemistry in a backseat role with James Harden and Russell Westbrook, can Rivers attempt to lead the offense of the most polarizing team in the NBA?
The SportsCastr News NBA team is excited to see how the Eastern Conference standings will play out in the 2020-2021 season. While the top four to five seeds may already be locked in, there will surely be season-long fights among the Hawks, Bulls, Wizards, and Hornets for some of the lower seeds. Guillermo and Simeon will soon have their questions answered when the NBA returns on December 22nd.Tags: Atlanta Hawks, Austin Rivers, Bulls, Charlotte Hornets, Chicago Bulls, Doc Rivers, Frank Ntilikina, Harden, Hawks, Hornets, Houston Rockets, James Harden, Knicks, Leon Rose, Madison Square Garden, MSG, NBA, NBA Draft, NBA Offseason, New York Knicks, Rockets, Russell Westbrook, SCN, SCN NBA, SportsCastr, SportsCastr News, Thibodeau, Tom Thibodeau, Washington Wizards, Westbrook, Wizards Last modified: December 2, 2020
