    Using 1 of the biggest draft busts of all time to illustrate the point that Kenneth Faried isn't worth pining over doesn't really do much to strengthen one's argument IMO.

    Sadly, we won't be getting Kwame. Minessota won the Kwame Brown Lottery. lol

Kwame's not much of a shotblocker, but he's athletic, can run the floor, and is a good rebounder, which are all things that we need desperately.

    Uh...

    How is any of that not true? How are any of those things that we DON'T need? Every Knick fan knows that we lack rebounding and paint presence and Kwame brings both of those things.

    Riiiight. Why not ask for Eddy Curry again? He's got a bigger, stronger frame.

    Except Eddy Curry has never been a good rebounder, ever.

    Kwame averaged 6.8 rebounds per game in 26 minutes. Per 36 minutes, he averages 8.9 rebounds per game, and 1 block per game.

    I'm not saying he's going to be a game changer but what's wrong with getting him for the minimum salary?

    Maybe nothing. Let's hope if we get in situations like we did with Jeffries in game 2 of the Playoffs, it won't be Kwame catching it, it'd at least be Turiaf.

    *Forgot Where Turiaf Was During That Play*

    Kwame would be a good addition, if he were to take a one year min.

    Exactly. These days, any 7-footer who doesn't absolutely suck is hard to find. There are 30 teams, and not enough centers to go around.

    Lucky for NY, we don't need a star center. We need a big body who can run the floor, clog the middle on defense, and doesn't expect many touches on offense. Just get out of Amare's way on the block, and focus on rebounds and put-backs.

    Personally, I'd prefer a defensive-minded guy like Tyson Chandler or Javale McGee, but that's not happening. Kwame would suffice if he settles for a 1yr minimum deal, and that would let the team fill other holes.

    Kwame should sign here to get the chance to play with Amar'e and Carmelo.

    He's nothing special and ideally I don't want him to even shoot the ball at all.

    Problem is even if he came here with the sole intention of rebounding and shot blocking he'd get benched by D'Antoni.

    This is the exact same "reasoning" I heard some Knick fans use to try & justify the Jerome James signing.

    The problem with Jerome James wasn't getting him, it was giving him the full Mid-Level Exception.

    Signing Jerome James for a year would've been a failed experiment and then we would've been done with his fatass. But no Isiah signed him to a long-term deal.

    As long as we don't waste valuable cap space on anybody we sign, it's a low-risk move. No multi-year deals.
