    But that's besides the point, I think we are one PF from becoming a dominant team. I don't know how much Stat has left in the tank.

    With Shump out till mid-season, Knicks will also need a defense specialist like Shane Battier.
    I said the refs will be our Achilles heel, if they let us play them physical like they do then we got a shot. Also STAT should have a bounce back year. He needs to pick it up on the defensive side of the ball though as for Shumpert being out we need to ad Deshawn Stevenson I think he'll put us into top 5 around the league

    I know your not thrilled with the idea of getting Nash, but this guy IMO is the best shot we have at taking out Miami. He may be up there in age but he keeps himself in terrific shape and is still the best passing PG in the game today. He averaged 10 assist last year with basically a bench roster with the suns, that's pretty impressive and he almost got the suns in the finals. Nash brings out the best in everyone.

    We need a floor general we have Lin, but i can tell you this much LIN is not taking us to the promise land. He will be a Great PG in the future and who better to learn from than Nash?

    Nash+Amare makes Amare not seem so useless and eases the pain of his atrocious contract.

    Nash+Melo = Less Contested/chucked shots from Melo, the floor spacing would be Legit giving Melo enough room to operate.

    Nash+Chandler= Nash would make Chandler a scoring threat down low, we already seen what Lin/Jason kidd could do with Chandler imagine what NASH could do with chandler.

    Like somebody said before the PROS outweigh the CONS with signing Nash.

    Gundy, Ca7 etc etc how can you not be in favor of signing this guy. Eliminate his age and just look at the quality we would be getting (plus we still have Lin) Nash + Lin PG tandem .... how can you pass that up o.O

    The idea of adding Camby or Nash makes me soil my under garments

    I don't understand why Knicks don't get all the calls all the time? Shouldn't Stern be thrilled that NYK is once again a NBA powerhouse? After all, New York is still the biggest media center in the world. But I wouldn't worry too much about the refs.

    If STAT somehow regains his explosiveness and stays healthy, we will be competitive. Adding a defense specialist and a competent backup PG should be the top priority.

    DeShawn Stevenson? Really?

    Lest we forget, both Camby and Nash will soon require adult diapers or they will soil their pants.

    Stevenson is the type of player every team needs. Grimey, aggressive, hard nosed and understand his role. He really gave it to James and Wade in 2011 and is a guy who could help our team get to the next level

    But age is my biggest concern for Nash. This guy has lower back problems and has logged a lot of mileage on his wheels.

    I'd love to have his experience on this team but not at the price that we are going to pay.

    Nash's age is the biggest reason why, also the price, also I hate the fit.

    On a terrible Suns team Nash averaged 10.7 assists per game last year and almost single handedly put them in the playoffs.

    But he didn't so thats a moot point. Numbers aside Nash isn't a good investment at 38 years old period

    Look at the Suns roster and tell me if they would have a chance at making the playoffs with any other PG...you would need the best PG like a healthy Rose to have made the playoffs with that Suns team.

    Their roster is terrible. Nash is better than you think bro, I'll end it at that.

    i can understand the age part he is old, but he is still in good shape and mobile. Nash could probably go 4 more years if he wanted to. I don't think you'll find a better PG rotation of Nash/Lin that's going to present itself. Sign up Nash for 2 years and chase the Championship if it fails, i believe Amare, Melo, Nash and chandler would all be coming off the books after the 2014-2015 season giving us a chance to rebuild completely or trade expiring contracts or whatever.

    Lets face it
    Ray Allen- Miami/celtic bound
    Andre Miller- most likely going back to Denver
    Odom- Clippers
    Jason Kidd- Most likely signs where Deron signs
    OJ Mayo- No shot
    Jason terry- NO shot

    Realistically-For 3 mill Felton, Foye etc are New york bound, but even signing them only improves our team slightly. Nash to me is the best option and is better than alot of these other NON big names FA's we are looking to target.

    If the option of getting Nash presents itself you pull the trigger. especially if all we have to give up if Landry fields + non-guaranteed contracts.

    @ Ca7 whats wrong with the fit? Reuniting Nash with Amare is perfect. Im not worried to much about Melo he will get his shots and do his thing and probably at a highler level playing next to Nash. Nash is capable of hitting the open shot he does not neccesairly need the ball to be effective he's a great shooter. Defense may be the only slight issue, but Lin aint exactly your cup of tea defensively either (better than Nash, but he's not locking up anybody). When Shump returns i think the defense would be just fine.

    Father Time will not be kind to 38-year old.

    I know STAT is vital to NYK but I am against getting Nash so that STAT can be STAT again.
