Miami signs Curry and he beasts on us in the playoffs? Can we fire D'Antoni then? Would you be mad?
I'm f*cking tired of this line...According to a Yahoo! Sports report, former Knicks center Eddy Curry has worked out for the Heat, and the two sides are moving towards and an agreement on a contract. If the season ended today, the Knicks would play the Heat in the first round of the playoffs.

"the Knicks should get Tyson Chandler this off-season" -or- "If the Knicks can get Tyson Chandler this summer they will be a force"
Tyson Chandler is just a another "serviceable big" (SB) in a long line of suggested and already had "serviceable big men" and opportunities ala...
It's a myth, a misnomer, a product of misunderstanding the facts. History indicates that a 'Tyson Chandler" isn't the answer. Every time I hear a suggestion to get Tyson Chandler I know automatically that person hasn't watched the Knicks as closely as I have. If they did they would know...
yes, while it's obvious that any serviceable big would help any team and goes without saying, to suggest a serviceable big should be acquired by this Mike D'Antoni lead Knick team is blatant disregard of the past.
We've had serviceable bigs, D'Antoni has had serviceable bigs, and the reason we don't have any now is because not only does he not know how to use them, his system doesn't utilize them, thus there is no value for them.
Add, Shaq and a slew of other "serviceable bigs" he's had in PHX and it's clear exactly why the Knicks don't have serviceable bigs (SB's tired of typing that) nor why they should be pursuing one.
Until we understand why we've wasted pics, wasted assets on our bench, and even with SB's D'Antoni hasn't achieved success defensively, don't look naive by suggesting a SB is the answer to the Knick's issues.
How would you feel if Eddy Curry beasts on us in the paint during the playoffs? I might just boycott my team until they rid us of Mike D'Antoni after that!
My fury would be unconscionable.
