1. Thibs is a defensive coach, and the knicks' problem isn't defense. They have good rebounding, and they were giving up 112.00 per game (20th), which isn't terrible ,considering the high scoring league the NBA has become.
The Knicks main problem is their lack of offense, because they can't hit threes. They have no shooters, and a ton of bigs. They have good athletic players who can get to the basket, but none of them can hit threes. So they are constantly trading twos for threes.
Their main issue is GM related, not drafting and signing the right players.
Also, the team is kinda injury prone to me already. Their PGs missed quite a few games, so the PG position would change a lot, but I think Elfrid is their main,complete PG. The center position would be up and down as well. ...and now you add thibs to a team where some players can't consistently stay on the court??
What in the hell is wrong with the Knicks organization?..Whenever I talk about the bulls, and get upset, I calm myself by saying " at least we are not the Knicks."
But hey, maybe he can make them more competitive. However, looking at that shit show he was in in Minnesota...I'm not sure.

If I grew up in a town where I got kicked in the balls daily, I wouldn't stay getting kicked in the balls daily just because it's what I was born into. I'd get the hell out of the city and preserve what's left of my balls.

My current motivation for remaining a fan of this rancid team is probably mostly out of stubbornness and childhood nostalgia of when the Knicks were actually worth watching and expending any serious time and attention on.
To spin this hire in somewhat of a positive light, I'm curious how Mitchell Robinson will improve since Thibs is supposedly a defensive guru. Other than that, I have absolutely nothing to hold out for in terms of the Knicks doing well.
