Knicks Blog Player of the Week: Tim Hardaway Jr.

Sam Spiegelman

The rook has arrived.

Tim Hardaway Jr. has played lights out off the Knicks’ bench over the past week, averaging just more than 16 points and shooting 43 percent from the field, including a 31-percent mark from beyond the arc over the past four games.

Of course, his 29-point effort against the Cleveland Cavaliers a week ago marked a new career high, and his clutch shooting in the fourth quarter against the Portland Trail Blazers last night nearly allowed the Knicks to complete the late comeback.

The rookie still needs to find a way to be more consistent, but over the past week he’s certainly proved he’s the Knicks’ best option at guard off the bench. And the more minutes you award him and the higher volume of shots he takes, the better off he is.

Apparently Dolan asked melo and Tyson last night if the coach needed to be fired

Boris Diaw did not dress tonight for the Spurs due to food poisoning. Prokhorov is pulling all the tricks. Kidd spills a drink and now they take out Diaw.

Alan Anderson literally keeps the nets in games single handedly.

I can't get excited about this "player of the week" thing. It always seems so ill-timed.

Like going to a horrible car wreck and saying…."ooh would you look at that simonizing job? (waxing)

Send Chandler to CLE for Deng and 2nd-rounders

Send Shump and Bargs to HOU for Asik and Brewer.

Send Felton, Metta, and the 2018 for Lowry

Steal Thibs during the off-season.


Team can go small with Lowry-Hardaway/JR-Deng-Carmelo-Asik, or 

big with Lowry-Hardaway/JR-Carmelo-Tyler-Asik.  


Re-sign them during the off-season, since all are under 30 and have 3-5 prime years left.


Team will have 4 scorers in the starting line-up and Thibs will have that group defending.  Maybe have a shot in the ECF.

@Hope4TheBest  Like everything but the go small stuff, Deng is 6 9 he aint small

@Jerry Gee  Why would Boston want a center that's 31 years old and slowing down with age?  They turned down a Rondo deal with Detroit for Greg Monroe and Knight, I think (last season).

@Kiyan Carter  How about Westbrook? What u think about him as a possible choice.

@Kiyan Carter  Rondo can run a tearm, the question is can he run ever again?

So much of his game is his speed and he looks awful (not ready) so far,


Kylie is still living off the hype. Definitely not a guy who leads, he just scores a lot.

@Kiyan Carter - COMMON BABY - WHY NOT? YOU KNOW HE CAN DEFEND.. SHUMP CANT HIT JUMP SHOTS EITHER.. You know what it is, when i think of brewer i think of a good time in my life where he was hitting every corner three - and jason kidd looked like magic @ 26 .. And novak was discounting double checks all over msg.... god what in the world happened here :(

@Jerry Gee  you high, I`m talking bout Oden a desperate attempt to get a center, not their record. Now I understand

Chris

@Jerry Gee  You sure about that. Pacers beat them pretty good last game, should have won the first time. And if they are not desperate why they have Oden?

@Jerry Gee @refguy22  Cant move Wade, can move Bosh, they are desperate for a center, Pacers are going to have them for lunch in the paint sans the crooked refs

@Jerry Gee @Biggie  His agent will work to get him the most money he possibly can. May be more than max. But that depends on the market and who blinks on overpaying Asik more than he's worth. For example seems to me Robin Lopez was acquired at a good price for what he brings to the table.

@Jerry Gee  They had an inside star recruiter networking for them while the old favorable CBA was still in play.

@Biggie @refguy22  i heard him say "them guys were smart." i didn't here him say crap about technicalities. but you could be right.

@Jerry Gee @Biggie  i got another feelin. melo is gonna go big or go home. he wants A+ players at least 1. he wants some type of championship guarantee. i think he is willing at this point to give up a some $$$ because afterall he did say "Lebron and them were SMART."
