    nene isnt really a role player lol hes a top 5 center easy, and hes the most efficient one. I rather have nene over paul becuase of our major need of a true center. If you look at the last few championship teams they all had a great front court.

    Lakers- Bynum, Gasol

    Celtics- Kg, Big baby , and perkins

    Mavs- Tyson chandler, cardinal, Brendan Haywood (I know he didnt play in the finals)

    Heat- Shaq,Alonzo Mourning, haslem

    Why do we have to make the same bad choice the heat did, the heat lost cuz they didnt have a good front court. We need a good center to compete for a chmpoionship simple as that. I'll take nene, or chandler over paul.

    Dude, are you not un-der-stand-ing-the-words-that-are-coming-out-of-my-mouth? Who said Nene was a role player? I said the Knicks don't have enough cap space this summer to afford the top free agents this summer like Nene.

    jsut making a point, a true center would help us out way more than CP3, history doesnt lie and it repeats itself, if ur gona win a ring a good front court helps.

    It's definitely an interesting quandary dude. Do you spend the big bucks on the home run signing, or do you split up the cap money on 2 or 3 very good players that can fill more holes? I guess it would all depend on who's available, but in general I always believe you take the best player available period because those are the guys that form the foundation of your franchise. With STAT & Melo already here, adding a guy like CP3 or Deron Williams would make the Knicks a powerhouse team for several years, probably a top championship contender. But I guess so would adding Bynum & Steve Nash. Decisions, decisions. Good position to be in that's for sure.

    I don't think Nene helps the Knicks as much as CP3 does, not even close. I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on that one. You're right that great big men that have played in the NBA have been a part of many championship teams, but so have great PG's, & in my mind Nene Hilario is not a great big man, he's good but not great. CP3 in my view is an alltime level talent at the PG position.

    No doubt. Can't believe that signing Bynum & Nash could be a "plan B" in any type of scenario but we actually have the cap space to make that a reality in 2012 if we play our cards right this summer. We'll either have our own "BIG 3" or the first "BIG 4" to match up with the Heat.

    Amare wanted his money that's why the Knicks got him. Otherwise he would have stayed in Phoenix. I don't think the Heat could have gotten him & Lebron both & still kept D Wade.

    If Reggie Evans wants to come cheap then I wouldn't mind signing him at all.

    I hate that we traded him for basically nothing

    That Minny trade was so pointless SMH.

    He'll be a Restricted FA, the Lakers own a team option on him for the '12-'13 season.

    I'm pretty sure we had to make the Minny trade to unload Curry's contract without taking back any salary. But I agree it's a shame we gave him up for pennies on the dollar after getting him here in return for an Allstar calibre PF in David Lee.
