Are these New York Knicks comparisons correct?
Julius Randle: A Christmas Tree
It’s the biggest thing we all gather around to celebrate. The tree is large and strong, capable of holding many lights and ornaments.
But, even the strongest of trees can’t be given too much to carry.
If you’re not careful, the tree can collapse entirely from all the weight on its branches. Remember, your home can look beautiful without the tree being solely responsible.
RJ Barrett: Christmas Eve
Most people love this day even though it can be cause for much anxiety. We’re all eager and excited for the potential that the future holds.
It’s a holiday in its own right, and there are plenty of reasons to celebrate early.
Evan Fournier: Santa Clause
Spoiler alert – Santa is a myth. Apparently, so too is the player we all expected Fournier would be.
It feels like he shows up to play just once a year.
Kemba Walker: Frosty the Snowman
A jolly, happy soul. He had to go for a while, but he came back just like he promised.
Mitchell Robinson: A Gingerbread Man
Crumbles easily. Childish.
Derrick Rose: Buddy the Elf (“Elf”)
Also briefly went missing, but eventually made a triumphant return to New York City and saved the day.
Immanuel Quickley: John McClane (“Die Hard”)
A certified badass with plenty of tricks up his sleeve who taunts his opponents. A quality marksman.
Obi Toppin: Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer
The young high-flyer who after a rough start learned to shine bright in a significant role. There’s hope that one day he will lead the sleigh.
