As a Mavs fan, I have to agree. I mean the man is a killer on the 3 point line on his spot, but other than that he is just meh. He cannot post up, so fragile, cannot bully anyone in paint AND his rebounding is also not great. Granted he is more of a PF than a classic Center and is forced to play the 5 because of no assets, but he really does need to step up if he wants to be an All-star level player IMO.

Jackie McMullen is OUT OF HER FREAKEN MIND.The STATS prove KLEBER is one of the best ON-OFF court players and his defensive-offensive plus minus per 100 posseses is +12.The trouble in mavs is JOSH RICH AND JIM JOHNSON.They slow down mavs offense and they are not as good defensively as they were advertised.Maybe you are not mavs fans_and want us to trade Kleber and Zinger.But we who watch mavs games know JJ and JR are 27 million worth trade asset that could bring OLADIPO to our team.That's enough for me

KP has never been a good defender, he'll get blocks helping teammates on penetrators, but thats about it. He rarely even gets double digit rebounds, so, minimal def rebounds for your 7'2 C... Luka needs someone he can rely on.

All these talking heads were making fun of the Knicks after the trade, but as much as Knicks fans loved the Unicorn, we knew two things they did not. (1) The Unicorn is fragile AF and that will only get worse with age. (2) The Unicorn's useless brother filled the Unicorn's head with the idea that all he had to do was walk onto a basketball court and all would bow before him. KP's brother is the worst thing that ever happened to him. At the end of the day, you can't play D in the paint when you're a stick figure who's afraid of getting broken by other big men. I hate to say it, but I see a short career for the guy -- his best may already be behind him.

"maybe Brunson can be seth curry" Brunson is much better than Seth Curry. He actually has moves, counters, strength.... Plus, Trey Burke was great in the playoffs for much cheaper. Maxi Kleber as their best defender was their biggest loss of the start of the season and this lady can't even say his name. "KP was an elite defender" He wasn't elite. He was fine; got plenty of blocks but any guard switch would target and destroy him. The Mavs are going to be just fine.

He can't turn it around defensively cause this NBA is too fast and athletic for him.... Plus he gets injured way to much! In other words he's trash and Porzingis's value is NOT what Dallas is going to be trying to get and they will be lucky to get back a player like... *Lavine *J.Grant *C.Wood *J.Collins For him ,cause this man just isn't gonna be the player everyone expected him to be!!! Boston should offer Dallas this... *Smart *Langford *G.Williams *Thompson For him and be happy they got that much cause he's probably gonna be out half the season with A.Davis style B'S injuries!!!!

Sombody please tell Doncic to work on using more than one side of the floor. He does the same thing every time he brings the ball down court, and heads to his left side of the floor and stops stands and pats on the ball looking for something before launching a step back three or he crashes the lane on the left where he sometimes finishes or shoots free throws. He has very good shooters on the court with him at all times and dont get me wrong he gets his share of assists, im just saying that he is getting shut down because good one on one defense players watch films and prepare for him to do what he commits to. Don't believe me ask Simmons.

KP unfortunately is washed. The injuries are only piling up more n more each season. When a massive guy like that gets consistent knee surgeries n pain and now back stiffness on top of that, it’s game over. Now it’s all about collecting as many paychecks as possible before either early retirement or before the league throws u out!

I'm a Knicks fan and I'll try to be fair. I was one of the few people who was glad we traded Porzingis because most people don't seem to comprehend how precarious most guys his size are. At 7'3 with his style of play he was going to get hurt. He was was a weak rebounder to begin with but now the even more limited mobility his going to affect that. Conversely he was an excellent shot blocker but if he's lost a step that's severely compromised. I have no resentment towards Porzingis and how he handled leaving NY but I said it then and it's proven true, Porzingis is not worth the money he's being paid.

Knicks basically replaced randle for porzingis and julious is way more durable, strong, great rebounder and facilitator and keeps defense honest with a good 3 point shot... sorry to say knicks win trade in the long term...randle would not have trouble in pick in rolls like porzingis will have in playoffs. porzingis is just not going to be healthy. ever...

if i were managing dallas, i would put to porzingis an ultimatom, which says in 3 matches, either you will start to play post offense instead of playing at the 3 pt line, sholud play much better post defense, and sholud take much more rebounds, or i will trade you. If that does not happen iwould trade him for a good defensive center and a couple more players for increasing bench depth. Also dallas should use hardaway more, for example as robin like last year.

The Mavs so called “revered” medical team brought him back way too early, hence his scarecrow defense. Idgaf if a player is clamoring to play, if he’s injured he’s injured. JJJ for the Griz had a similar injury 3 months before KP and he’s yet to play. That’s the way it should be.

Lets address the elephant. The Knicks won that trade. He forced his way out, we used the cap space to sign a young allstar on a cheap deal, and marcus morris. we flipped marcus for Quickly and DSJ for rose. also looking at 2 pick in or just outside the 2021 lottery. Mavs have a max contract that can rarely be used. oh and THJR is pretty good i guess

At this point I’d keep porzingis as a PF roll cause I don’t see him actively defending the paint. The dudes good on pick & rolls, of course he’s a decent 3pt shooter. Something more like a PF. They need a body that’s going to big muscle those rebounds and defend the paint and I don’t think porzingis is going to do that for them at least not this season.

As a Knicks fan I was upset with the trade. but it shows you can't make judgments until 2 years after the trade. KP will be injury prone, shoots too many 3s and may not make it into his 30s. A 7-3 inch player with several knee and leg injuries is not a good sign. Plus with the cap space, we signed Randle who is an All Star, have more cap space and several draft picks.

The biggest Dallas problems are manager Donnie Nelson and head coach Rick Carlisle. Donnie has to be fired because he made this weak team and Rick as well because he shows us much time she couldn't handle the clutch moments of the game. After that Dallas has a trade KP, Powel, Iwundu, Terry, and Josh Green for Nikola Vučević.

But what they didnt anticipate was if kai will he get enough minutes or playing time? And now they realize kai will likely not get utilize by shaw like singh thats why they pulled him out of the team but too late now kai can no longer take the ncaa route because he already signed with ignite a semi pro team. They plan to sabotage kai career cause they see kai is a threat to black player in america..
