The Knicks needed J.R. Smith back. His character has gotten better, otherwise he would not be Sixth Man of the Year. The contract offer to him is more than reasonable. All of you are aware of what the Knicks are capable of and individual players are capable of. I believe there is a chance the Knicks can still be contenders. Iman looks to be improving and the team will for the most part be more familiar with eachother. One thing the Knicks have not had for a while is a consistent roster. Chemistry and health is the biggest issue and I trust Mike Woodson will do a better job this coming year.
Overall good sign, good contract. As for Bargnani, his contract sucks but should be given a chance. Prigioni will be back another good sign, Elton Brand decent veteran min.
Felton, Prigioni, (Aaron Brooks??)
Iman, J.R., Hardaway
Melo, (Maurice Evans???)
Amare, Andrea, (Kenyon Martin???), (Elton Brand???)
Chandler, (Jerome Jordan??)
Not the best group but can be with the right coaching.
if anything, hed be a great throw in piece in a trade if any good ones ever come up and (i really dont care how much tax we pay, not my problem) we need sallaries like JR's to entice other teams to take amare or chandler, or can be a good fill in salary

My apologies for not believing in, what you obviously think is a Knicks superteam.
Without Jason Kidd's I.Q. this is a very dumb team, if you think we'll be able to match last years success then I dont know what to tell you.
To each their own, Go Knicks! :beer:
I find myself repeating this over and over again:
Jerome James got 5 mil a year, JR is worth this even on a bad day. Plus we couldn't use that money on anyone else anyway. Either sign him or let him walk as we don't have enough cap space to sign someone straight out.
Would be nice to have Cope back but I think he deserves more than we can offer, I'm happy with Stat, melo, JR and Bargi putting up the point. Now Grunny bring me another decent point and some REBOUNDING and i'm a happy knicks fan.
Oh by the way, if shump is healthy and keeps improving we might have an all star in our hands one of these days
if jr leaves everyone is going to **** on grunnies life, but if he resigns.. wait everyones still going to **** on grunnies life
4 more years 4 more years 4 more years... the Knicks are not in the position to let players leave with nothing in return. At the least we have a player with a moveable contract this year or next
Tyreke Evans 44M/4yr deal with NO. Not going to believe JR is a Knick until it's official.
Never mind. It's official.

Believe it!! [Only registered and activated users can see images. Click Here To Register...] have no qualms! At 5mil we couldn't spend on anyone else anyway. Bring on the reigning 6th man!!
I'm OK with it. JR will win a few games for us. 4y/24M is not that bad for sixth man of the year, He knows our system and he will continue to improve. :gony:
