The New York Knicks athletic frontcourt is young and special. Not many teams have the type of personnel which allows them to run a pick-and-roll involving their power-forward and center. The Knicks possess that kind of talent in their front-court.
As the 2019-20 NBA season approaches, many speculate that Mitchell Robinson and Julius Randle will be the Knicks front-court. Defensively Mitchell Robinson will terrorize his opponents at the rim and the three-point line. Randle defensively will benefit with Mitch Rob next to him. Offensively Mitch Rob will benefit with Randle next to him. A Randle to Mitchell Robinson lob will be tough for opposing defenses to stop but crowd-pleasing amongst Knick fans. Julius Randle also has a knack for making good reads and connecting with teammates with his excellent passing skills. Julius Randle is also very comfortable with bringing the ball up the court just like a point guard would. The Knicks newly acquired power forward will be a walking triple-double once he puts everything together. Julius Randle and Mitchell Robinson complement each other on both ends of the court. If Julius Randle continues his improvement on his three-point shot, the sky is the limit.
The New York Knicks possess a high octane frontcourt with plenty of depth behind them in case they get into foul trouble or if injuries occur. Fizdale, of course, will take advantage of the depth by approaching each game with a goal of being aggressive on both ends of the court. Knicks have an ultra-athletic front-court and the Eastern Conference will get a taste of a young talented group sporting the orange and blue this upcoming season.
