    Default If you could go back in time...

    ...Would you undo the STAT signing? OR.....
    Would you sign STAT but not make any major trade?
    ... sign STAT but trade for DWill?
    ...don't sign stat but still trade for Melo?
    ...Don't sign STAT but still trade for DWill?

    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.

Lin is still learning the game but has potential.

    I would have never signed Houston to the 100 million dollar contract if I knew his knees would not hold up.

    The Mckdyess trade would have never happened. Instead of drafting Nene I would have drafted Amare straight up.

    I would have never drafted Mike "fat ass" Sweetney with the 9th overall pick.

    I would have drafted Ron Artest instead of Frederic Wiess.

    I would have never traded Sprewell for Kieth Van Horn.

    I would have assisnated Isiah Thomas. He would never be within 300 miles of the garden.

    Eddy Curry, Maurbry, Zack Randolph, Steve Francis, Jerome James would never be part of the knicks.


    ***Can you believe that the bidding war over Mike Dantoni was between the Knicks and the Bulls? I would trade for Thibs too.

    Would have talked David Lee into signing a 5 year contract for 5 million a year back in 09 when we could have had him for cheap.

    Would have still done the Jeffries deal but traded Douglas instead of a pick

    would have drafted Jeremy Lin over Andy Rautins

    Would have still done the Melo deal.

    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
