I love what I see early on from this team. They have barely been together for 1.5 months and are showing major fight against top Playoff contenders in the League. The lossss have pissed me off haha, but there was a lot to be gained from them. I'll ignore all the Melo slander. Hard for a team to ever go anywhere when their fans turn on you in the blink of an eye
but I digress.
Porzingis is the truth and I knew his supposed "lack of strength" was not going to stop him from being a problem. Too gifted and too skilled. He WANTED to be in NY and he is playing like it. Love his defense. It's hilarious how all the reports were claiming he wouldn't be able to play defense his first year
Once we can get Afflalo back it will help a lot. He has to be in the starting lineup because Sasha and Calderon together is a complete tragedy. Just not gonna work. Hopefully Afflalo comes back healthy because teams cannot just leave him open. That 2nd scorer will make it so much easier for Melo to find his scoring groove again. I love his effort on the boards, defensively and his passing has been solid. Looking forward to seeing this team grow in the weeks/months to come.
