    ...Would you undo the STAT signing? OR.....
    Would you sign STAT but not make any major trade?

    I
    I would have signed Shaq and let Ewing walk.

    Signed Tim Hardaway instead of Chris Childs coming off one good year.

    Signed Thibs to coach and still made the same moves with STAT & Melo.

    PS: I never would have traded Clyde for a garbage Butch Beard...

    I would have organized joint prayer and willed Lebron to sign with us.

    In hindsight, ya, you sign Lee and get the hometown discount to boot. It's moot at this point, barring a magical turnaround by Amare.

    I can't fault the STAT signing, though. After we whiffed on Lebron, JJ, Bosh.....And it's not like Amare didn't play up to his contract last yr (even with his D and general question marks).

    If I could do one thing legit over again for this franchise?

    TRADING FOR MELO. Hands down, no questions asked.

    We bent over backwards and negotiated like we were securing Lebron James and not leaving even a .0000001% chance we wouldn't get him.

    Wanna know what happens if DEN legit doesn't take our offer, or if Melo actually goes off to New Jersey to play on a bottom feeder?

    We trade for Deron Williams lol. And look like mensch in the process, and flip over our stigma of getting treated like bitches in trades.

    The Melo deal was foolish as a matter of principle and good business and negotiating -- and it was foolish that Gallo was undervalued, by Dolan at least, and that he was offered up as a gimmie in the deal, and treated on par with Fields' value.

    If I could go back in time, I would stop D'Antoni from being hired. That's the real reason Lebron didn't come here, and the reason we are underachieving right now.

    50 years of watching Knicks Basketball....Dantoni is the worst headcoach the
    Knicks organization hired. I thought Stu Jackson was terrible but Dantoni took
    it to another terrible level.

    When we sign Stat & Felton, F/C-David Lee shouldve been resign as a Keeper
    to go alongside of SF-Wilson Chandler....I also wouldve kept crazy Nate energy
    and hard work ethic in our lockerroom.

    I would not have signed stat or traded for melo..

    CP3
    Fields/ shump
    Gallo
    insert FA or rookie or have kept Lee or Randolph
    Chandler. only signing i was really stoked about

    This honeslty would have been my ideal lineup and possibly have used peices to trade for an upgrade at SG.


    Also would never have let Ewing walk. And agree 100% with the past failed drafts like Sweetney and Hill

    Everyone needs to stop with this take less money....

    The only reason Lebron, Wade and Bosh agreed is become the income tax in Florida is lower then other places so their net gain was the same as if they were in any other city.....

    Name another player who has taken less money ??????

    I would have never gave him all that loot,nfw. This was clearly a panic move by the brass. Fans were gathering their torches and pitch forks once they learned Lebron left the cash on the table. The brass had to get a big man that can score...plus Stat was familar with D'ants system. The desparation shows when they gave a uninsured contract to an ailing player...playing within an wear and tear system. There is no going back, unfortunately. The future really isn't all that bleak. A small change in coaching can easily remedy the headaches we face today.
