    Not a big fan of Josh Smith. I know he brings defense and stuff, but his bad shooting plus chucking could be bad.

    Ya, you're right -- he's a bit of a chucker, considering how weak his shot is. His decision making can be maddening.

    He seems to have gotten better this season, though. But man, if he ever played up to the potential of his game...

    Such a gifted athlete, defender, and passer nonetheless.

    The guy can legit put up lines of 20pts, 5blocks, 5steals, 5assists in a single game while flying around the court. Sick f'ing athlete.

    We can lay in the bed Dolan made for us.

    Endure the next 3+ years regardless of their outcome.

    Amar'e is borderline immovable. Uninsured contract with a resumè of debilitating injuries and an expiring timer on his athleticism. I believe that any proposal for Amar'e would be a see-saw trade in which we soak up another unwanted contract.

    Carmelo is Dolan's doing, and the likelihood of him admitting his lapse by trading Melo is a flying pigs situation.

    This organization will see very little roster movement throughout the duration of STAT & Melo's tenure.

    If there were anything we could do with the approximate $40M these 2 collectively 'earn' for the foreseeable future, we could demand they restructure their contracts and give back that which they can't as players. -10% per season each to add to the pockets of Lin and Fields.

    Don't really know why I bothered saying it, but that's what I'd like to see.

    For now, however, we weather the metaphoric storm.

    There is still a lot of hope left within this roster and organization, but it seems to have been teetering on the brink since opening night's epic win.

    I like this team. Get rid of Antoni, and the Knicks will be championship contenders next year.

Amare is going to be a beast now that he has someone who can operate the P&R like Lin
