I'm not to sure about Kidd to the Mavs. The Mavs have Rodrigue Beaubois and could go after Ramon Sessions or Raymond Felton. I'm pretty sure some of you know how much I want J-Kidd to be a Knick. It would kind of being like flipping off the Nets. I pissed off with the Nets off-season moves.
Kidd aint coming. Grunwald failed. They learned NOTHING from last year. Lin better comeout and be every bit of linsanity that he was, and If he gets hurt were up ****s creek without a paddle. Lets not mention that hes never been a starter through a whole NBA season( or half for that matter). Thats to much for a kid whos still developing. I just hope they have some kind of plan here. Im not talking felton either.
We need Kidd, but it looks like he's using the NY media and market as a bartering lever again.
What an enormous dick pimple he is.
I'd be fine with Raymond Felton, to a degree, but if he comes back (if he even wants to come back, that is) and has a season like he did in Protland, I'd be fuming.
He won't earn a lot in his next contract because, well, he just didn't earn it in his time away from NY.
He can play though, and his dedication has always been praised. He might get a shot at the starting 1 with Lin at the 2 until Shump gets back. Denver played him and Lawson together effectively.
I cant believe our guys in the FO wasted all that time and energy on Nash and it doesnt look like he ever really was going to come here. Shouldnt of wasted the time. Should of just went at kidd early. Maybe would of made him feel wanted more then just the guy we got bc we couldnt land Nash. Grunwald has been disappointing thus far. But it is early.
There's not a team in this league that doesn't want Lin's bird rights.
Lin will be back.
Hopefully he brings back some of that epic Linsanity.
Houston are not a threat. The Raptors, now that they have Landry, are a threat, IMO. I think they'll pay big ~ $40M-$44M.
Did not know Dragon wanted that much. Not sure he'll get that, but I'm fine with 8Mil for him. It's likely we roll the dice that Lin is close to what he did during Linsanity.
Please god no felton.. I'd rather have douglas at point than him. I HATE Felton.. His chucking of shots drove me absolutely insane. I got zero enjoyment out of watching him play.
Normally I don't ever say "oh well x player just benefited from the coaches system" but honestly with him it was the truth. There was like a 3 month period where he put up decent numbers in the D'Antoni system but he has never come close to that level of play since then or throughout his entire career. Keep him away. Get someone else I don't care who it is.
It's not Grunwald's fault. I don't think he could've done any more than he did to lure these guys here. At the end of the day, Kidd won his first ring with the Mavericks, so he'll obviously have a lot of loyalty towards them.
Since we're not getting Jason Kidd either, we need to look at other FA guards on the market.
How about Aaron Brooks? He can run an offense (kind of) and he can also score, would be a great Jason Terry-type for our team.
We could look into Ramon Sessions, but man that guy cannot score worth a damn.
How about Jameer Nelson, who is now a free agent?
And then, of course, there's Raymond Felton, but we all know about the deficiencies in his game already.
If Kirk Hinrich has not been signed yet, Grunwald needs to be on the phone with his agent RIGHT NOW.
To waste all this time to only come up with James White shows our mindset is to make noise and not make championship teams.
