Calling all October P&T mailbag questions!

NBA: New York Knicks at Miami Heat Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

How y’all? Dunno ‘bout you, but I’m exhausted. Drowning at one new job. Drowning at a second. Drowning beneath the 24/7 climactic news re: climate change. Drowning beneath the craven life-ruiners who skulk in the long shadow of the Nazi American “president” and his 24/7 cartoonish supervillainy. How I crave the sweet release of a fugue state.

But that ain’t happening. So let’s mailbag.

A new season is just one week away! I can’t remember the last time the Knicks entered a season riding mostly positive vibes from fans and outsiders. Sure, it’s yet another 25-30 win season, the I-IV-V chord progression of the 21st century Knicks. But it appears our boys in blue and orange have gone from fulfilling the first 5/6ths of Samuel Beckett’s famed advice — “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again” — to reaching its vital endgame: “Fail better.”

Whaddya wanna rap about? Player or team expectations for the season? The viability of David Fizdale’s minutes mantra? Speculations about next summer’s NBA draft or free agency? The spectacle of Joakim Noah’s final days? The spectacle of Noah Vonleh’s fine-ass gravity-taunting defensive crouches? Float your brainstorm in the comments below, or hit up P&T’s Twitter (now 100% more Wolfey!). Catch y’all on the flipside.
