Rex Chapman Compares Zion Williamson to Rodney Rogers… and it’s a Good Comparison!

Ever since Zion Williamson‘s 1st collegiate game with the Duke Blue Devils, people have been obsessed with making him the undisputed #1 NBA Draft pick in 2019. This has led to struggling Knicks’ fans to dream about Zion wearing a Knicks uniform playing next to Kristaps Porzingis

I am not one of those Knicks fans clamoring for Zion, don’t get me wrong he is an athletic freak that can jump out of the gym. He’s dominating college kids with his 6’7′ (or 6’6”), 285 lb frame, but I’m hesitant how his game will translate from college to the pros. And I discussed my apprehension on Twitter, which led to a nice back and forth with fellow Knicks fan @PauliePancakes5 and Brooklyn Nets lover @AdamOrecchio 

As I went thru listing what I believe are Zion’s negatives, Adam replied with positives that made sense. And then Paulie said the following…

At that time I believe I replied with, good comparison but I think Rogers had a better jumper and post-up game then Zion. I didn’t think much of the comparison after that until today, when Bomani Jones (@bomani_jones) retweeted former NBA player Rex Chapman‘s (@rexrex_chapman) tweet

I definitely needed the video to remind me how much of a beast Rodney Rogers was in college, DAMN!!!! Zions outweighs Rogers by approximately 50 lbs but the height, athleticism and ferocious finishes at the rim compares favorably.

So shout out to Rex and I guess [sigh] props to Paulie for the Zion / Rogers comparison, but at the end of the day I still wouldn’t take Zion #1

As always….

Milwaukee Bucks Website Clowns the NY Knicks

What’s that old saying?

To the Victors Belong the Spoils

New York Senator William L Marcy (1831)

Well the Bucks website is straight shootin’ at the Knicks with no regard, as the Bucks have pretty much owned the Knicks over their last 15 games against each other. Calling Giannis Antetokounmpo The King of New York, mentioning Giannis play against the Knicks being similar to how Michael Jordan would put in work at Madison Square Garden. Stating that New York and the Knicks is just a stage for superstars to show out.

Anyway, as Jordan showed in the 90s, the optimal function of the Knicks in the NBA is to provide a cinematic setting for an opponent to beat them both routinely and savagely. Our pal Giannis, with his thousands of fans waiting for him outside MSG after beating the Knicks, has stepped into this role nicely, and we thank him for it.

Mil Bucks

And that was only the beginning…

While complimenting Kristaps Porzingis, they managed to still take a shot at the Knicks

Genuinely it is too bad that Porzingis is hurt because these games are way more fun when he — the only worthy foe to Giannis — is in there.


Next up…

Lance Thomas. The poor fella guarded Giannis on his step-back game-winner in the Garden. When people think of Lance Thomas (and I am not sure they do!), they should probably think of this.

And of course they left the most fire for Mario Hezonja who dunked on and stepped over Giannis in their last meeting…

Mario Hezonja. Arguably the worst player on a dreadful Knicks team, Hezonja was most recently seen getting a DNP-CD in a loss in a “battle” between perhaps the two worst teams in basketball (Knicks, Hawks). Hezonja, who has fewer dunks this season (8) than Giannis has had in individual games this season, will go down in NBA history as the person whose **** were put on warning by Giannis. Happy Holidays!

WOW!

Man listen, Giannis is a beast on the court and the Bucks are a good team, and these are not Giannis words in disrespecting the Knicks, but every man on the Knicks have to take this personal and send a message Christmas Day. Not looking for a brawl or anything but the Knicks have to come out with fire and passion on the court.

The Knicks may lose the game but you can’t get blown out, leaving the court with your head down. Time to not only stand-up for yourself but also the Knicks fans that pack MSG nightly. The Knicks will not make the playoffs, but here’s a chance to give real Knicks fans something to cheer for the rest of this season.

As always….

Kristaps Porzingis STILL Needs Carmelo Anthony….

Kristaps Porzingis STILL needs Carmelo Anthony

Yup, I said it, and have always believed it and Porzingis aka “The Unicorn” believes it as well.

“I think it would make life harder for me on the court (if Anthony was traded),” Porzingis told the Daily News. “He makes stuff easier for me.”

When KP and the Knicks defeated the NJ Nets Wednesday night, Knicks’ fans who have booed Melo at MSG finally saw their vision come true; KP leading the Knicks without Melo (on the bench for the 4th quarter).

As a Knicks fan I am always happy when the Knicks win, but we have to be realistic. KP is 0-8 when Melo doesn’t play, and I realize it’s a small sample size but still relevant. KP will be a very good and possibly a great player but he still has a lot to learn and prove in the NBA.

“There’s still a lot more things I want to learn from Melo,” Porzingis told The News. “So I would love to have him around for a long time. I always love playing with Melo.”

So Knicks fans, while I agree that it maybe time for Melo to be traded, at the same time we have to be careful of a couple of things. We can’t afford to get rid of Melo and get trash in return, and the organization needs a plan moving forward to develop KP and have an identity for the Knicks.

One last thing… Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but someday Knicks fans will miss Melo when he is gone!

Kristaps Porzingis #HotlineZing

Kristaps Porzingis has taken the NBA by storm in the first half of the season, so be prepared for Porzingis mentions during NBA All-Star weekend in Toronto. Having the 4th most sold jersey in the NBA will get you a lot of love from the media, and apparently it will also make you the feature of a song parody of Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’….

As a Knicks fan I am cool with all this attention, just at the end of the day… Stay Focus my man, Stay Focus!!

As always….
