Mitchell Robinson got the start of the Knicks tonight. I am sorry, but he should be a Laker.....it was right there.

Ayton impressed me in our game, he schooled Lebron in the paint. It will be interesting to see if he can expand his range in the next 3-4 seasons.

I hope he doesn't go down the KAT road on defense while on some bad Suns teams.

Mitchell Robinson looked very good last night.....5 of 5 for 11 Points, 3 Rebounds, 1 Assist, 1 Steal and 1 Block in 15 minutes.

Mitchell Robinson (13 Points, 10 Rebounds, 3 Assists, 3 Steals, 1 Block) and Allonzo Trier (23 Points, 2 Rebounds, 1 Assist) had a solid night for the Knicks again.

Let’s give Wagner at least a minute or two on the court before we say he was the wrong pick...

As someone who followed Doncic with RM, glad to see him balling in the NBA. Things he achieved in Europe at his age was crazy. Amazing he was underappreciated by so many teams before the draft and could have gone 5th or 6th after being talked about as a possible #1 pick not long ago. Mavs got a gem.

Good to see Mitchell with flashes, but he hasn't been doing that great lately.

I recently heard or read that lineups with him on the court without Gasol had a poor net rating which was surprising.

I liked him as a prospect and would’ve been happy with either pick but I wanna give Wagner a chance to develop before we write him off.

Robinson has a very long way to go....he is mostly just doing the few things he is capable to do at this level in limited minutes....dunk, rebound and block shots....5 PPG, 4 RPG, 2 Blocks and a steal in 17 minutes. I would expect as they fall more out of the playoff race, his minutes will increase....especially if they move Kanter. He is years old, but I see no reason he could not be a defensive force by around 23.

I mean, options are limited for historical comparisons. Tbh, historical comparisons kind of suck. But a barely 19-year-old sporting a 3.5 BPM this early in his career is impressive regardless.

I think that Arizona team being up and down his Junior season, and so much attention on Ayton, we kind of forgot the young man can ball at a high level. Solid pickup for the Knicks.

He was the perfect Moreyball scorer in college and a competent man defender. That second PED related suspension as a junior turned me off, but he was a late 1st rounder for me in 2017. I would've been happy with him at #47 given how far he fell (sorry, Svi).

If you've been waiting patiently for De'Anthony Melton to get a shot, all it took was a 36-9 1st Q against the Kings for him to get some extended run.

He responded with 21 points on 12 shots and led the Suns with a +24 in a double digit loss.

*but he can't shoot*
*the Lakers have enough guards*
*he's not ready for NBA defense*
