    Why in the world would u want Curry. The guy has been injured and it has becomes clear he has somewhat of a chronic ankle injury.

    We got lucky with finding LIN. We are a team in desperate needs of a PG why in the world would we not run with LIN.....

    Default 3 words

    3 words: sh*t for brains

    Why would you start this thread? are you high, retarded or both?
    Has Linsanity gone in and out of your head like a sieve?

    Knicks need a true PG, who else is going to start at PG for the money
    we have to spend with STAT and MELO making top dollar?

    Lin knows how to play with the Knicks, knows how to win with the Knicks,
    with and without the big 2.

    Lin brings in more money than we can ever pay him, from filling the garden seats
    (and every arena Knicks go to with fans and asian fans), to money from foreign
    markets to broadcast Knick games.

    sign and trade is the worst idea i've heard all year. shame!

    throw this in the stupid trade thread.

    btw, David Lee still earns every penny he makes, Knicks would be much better
    off with him than STAT at this point

    Curry has better

    handle
    shot
    court vision/passing skills
    defense(though their both average, Steph's hands are better)

    Lin has better

    marketability
    fan base

    Steph took a mid major deep into the NCAA tournament

    Curry is better than Lin

    but hey I like Lin just think most of you over rate the phuck out of him

    After seeing us with virtually no PG in the miami series I have no idea how you can start this thread. Lin isnt going anywhere. He has a great basketball IQ. That alone is a reason to keep him on the team because I honestly think basketball IQ is lacking on our team.

    Anthony, Lin, Fields maybe Chandler and Shumpert all have decent IQ's

    Stoudemire, Smith and Douglas are all lacking

    This reminds me a lot of David Lee, at the minimum salary he looked amazing but a player losses value the second he signs his big contract!

    Lin was this season at league min, but full MLE is the very least he'll make and I don't see it man! Teams will pay for "Linsanity" and I think we should pass because we need wins more than hype right now.

    Look Linsanity will stimulate teams such as Golden State and Sac who are up agains 2 highly popular teams in Califonia right now! Linsanity helps that almost dead basketball market in Toronto! If Deron Williams bounces this off season it will give a moral victory to The Nets....but we need a player that is going to take us to The next level, popular or not!


    Now teams are going to try to backload his contract and throw in trade clauses to get us not to match, which ultimatley is as big a risk for them, so if we let it be known that we will hear trade propositions (which keeps teams from assuming that risk and us having to overpay or lose him for nothing) then it may be worth looking in to.

    Teams listed to be intersted

    Nets-can't see us making a deal with them because of how competive we are with one another, but they do have draft picks and King is not shy about trading away!

    A 2014 unprotected first round pick and Anthony Morrow

    Gives us some help with shooting, first round pick is good because we lose a pick every other year until 2016! But of course means we have to go hard w/ MLE to get a PG


    Golden State-Lin knows the coaching staff and they known him and want him back! They have Steph Curry, but my hunch is Mark Jackson wants a more cerebral PG (like himself). Lin,Thompsan,Jefferson,Lee, Bogut makes a very solid team!

    Straight up deal for Steph Curry

    Lights out shooter for Knicks at the PG position that would open the floor for us and can make passes, knock is he does not have Lin's strength and height and will not hit the boards and play w grit like Lin, yet Lin's shot is not even on the same planet!


    Toronto- The need excitement, period! Lin is a lateral move, but will put fans in the seat, they are also strapped for cash, not having to back load a contract and to still get Lin would be huge for them!

    Lin/Douglas for Calderon!
    It wasn't even worth reading tbh. I just glanced at this and laughed.

    JR- shoots when he shouldn't, passes when he shouldn't

    Toney- dribbles too much or too little, has no court vision, no understanding off any NBA offense all he knows is shoot

    stop the with the Lin over rating please its getting annoying from all parties

    Curry- 17pts, 6ast, 4rebs, almost 2 steals, 47-44-90

    Career Best per game stats
    18.6 pts(2nd year)
    5.9 ast(rookie year)
    4.5 rebs(rookie year
    1.9 steals(rookie year)
    49% FG(this year)
    45.% from 3(this year)
    93.4% FT(2nd year)
    2.5 TO's(this year)

    I'll just take Lin's stats from his tenure in New York

    14.6 pts, 6.2 ast, 3.1 rebs, 44-32-79 and 3.6 to's

    didn't say it would happen, I said I'd do it if presented why would I not

    this thread is garbage I agree but regardless that one scenario is worth looking into with GSW looking to re-acquire Lin's services and the Knicks needing a a point guard with skills like Curry's

    How many Sport's Illustrated covers has Stephen Curry been on?
    How many Stephen Curry jerseys were sold this year?
    How many people that never watched basketball in their entire lives, are now watching basketball games because of Curry?
    How many fans on the away team cheer for Curry like he's their hometown hero when he comes to play?
    How many games are sold out away and home because of Stephen Curry?

    You still don't get it.
    You can't talk about trading Lin player for player. Lin brings too many off court intangibles that no player can match straight up (except for Kobe or Lebron).

    nobody is overrating him, what people ARE doing is trying to tell you and all the other people that keep making dumb trade threads that its not gonna happen.

    As a matter of fact, it is you who is UNDERRATING him......... just let the kid grow he is not great now but he has the potential to be and so does this knicks team even if they are not great now they can be if we don't ****ing trade everyone after a year......
