    Or maybe it's just something to boost his trade value... nice job either way. i see no negative effects.

    this is bad news guys,
    i mean after trying to getting rid of him, he is now named a tri-captain? i really don't think it will affect his trade-value, and i'm still thinking what is isiah really trying to do

    Isiah is slick!
    The move to make Kurt a captain is obviously to boost his ego, since for the whole off season he has heard rumors that he would be traded for Dampier, Walker or Wally.
    Now Isiah can't go to Kurt and say, I need you to play hard, build up your stats, show that your finger is completely healed, so that I can trade you easier..............so what does he do, he makes Kurt a captain, so he has to lead by example, and that in itself will have him playing with more energy and effort, just enough to raise his trade value so that Isiah can ship him out b4 the Febuary trade deadline for someone good!

    But as Kurt so neatly put it, when a reporter asked him if now being a captain, means he's is less likely to be traded, he quickly replied, "Patrick Ewing was a captain, and he was traded!"

    Agree 200%. Isiah is surprising us every day and that's so good. Let's hope Kurt will elevate his level to another plateau now.

    Personally I wouldn't trade him cause he has madd heart on the court, but in Isiah's scheme of things, sweetney is the future and will definitely start with Jerome Williams being his back up. With Kurt's stats up, Isiah will probably want to make trades for even bigger fish or even use him to get rid off anderson in a package deal
