Trading for Nash!? Dolan talking to Isiah again? This trade have Isiah written all over it.
LOL, all the major NY media are lobbying hard to seal this deal, right now I'm listening to ESPN NY and all what they're saying is basically "we don't give a damn about what happens three years from now, trade for Nash [and make a big story out of it!]". Again, if I was Shump I'd start hating this city, from a future Knicks star to an useless injured rookie not worth enough to consider keeping him.
I just want this to be over already...
The Knicks would still be giving up a lot of money and years for an old Steve Nash. The Pheonix Suns have the best training staff, without them who's to say Steve Nash doesn't gets injured. If he does it would be hard to replace him. Steve Nash is not the best fit to the Knicks to begin with.
Jason Kidd could play better defense, better rebounder, play the two, cheaper, and could also mentor Lin. Jason Kidd fits better in Mike Woodson's system.
NOW, YOUR A GM. YOU HAVE MELO, STAT AND CHANDLER. YOU HAVE A YOUNG KID, IN SHUMPERT, WHO HAS SHOWN A TON OF POTENTIAL. HES COMING OF RECONSTRUCTIVE KNEE SURGERY. NOW YOU HAVE NASH. AN ALL STAR POINT GAURD WHO HAS A FEW GOOD YEARS LEFT IN THE TANK. HE HAS DONE IT ALL, EXCEPT WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP. HE DECIDES HE WANTS TO COME TO YOUR TEAM, TRY TO MAKE THE MIS PLACED PUZZLE PIECES FIT THAT YOU HAVE ACQUIRED. HES A KNOWN FLOOOR GENERAL WHO NWILL HOLD THE GUYS AROUND HIM ACCOUTABLE FOR WHERE THEY ARE ON THE COURT.
AGAIN YOU HAVE A TEAM BUILT WITH 3 MAX-LIKE CONTRACTS. 3 SUPERSTARS WHO CANT MESH. A TEAM WHO DOESNT HAVE A SOLID PG, BESIDES THE ONE THERE ABOUT TO MORTGAGE WHATEVER TINY BIT OF FUTURE FINACIAL FLEXABILITY MATCHING A POISON PILL DEAL, A TEAM WITH WHO STARS WHO DONT OFFENSIVELY CO EXIST, AND YOU PLAY IN THE BIGGEST MEDIA MARKET IN THE BUISNESS.
WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO? THE WIN NOW AWNSER IS NASH. THE WIN IN THE FUTURE, DOESNT EXIST FOR AT LEAST 5 YEARS.
SOoooooo to answer youre question do I think the knicks will win now without Nash? Nope. Do I think theyll win now with Nash? NOPE. Do I think theyll win in the future building around lin and shumpert. NOPE.
Were ****ed no matter what. We were ****ed from the moment we signed stat to try to convince lebron(lmfao XD), we were ****ed from the moment we traded for melo. Might as well try to enjoy it. And I think the season will be more enjoyable with Nash and im not going to sit here like its the death of the franchise because were trading shumpert. This franchise has been dead LOOOOOOOOOONG before that.
Nash can't play with Melo. Melo is a ball stopper. He doesn't like to play the pick n roll which is a Suns trademark.
Lin will be our starting shooting guard? How does that make any sense to anyone?
Why don't the Knicks just sign Iverson? If we already going for someone pushing 40?
I don't think Nash gives us that much more than Iverson would. And there is already some chemistry with Melo and Iverson. This is more important than Nash and Amare chemistry too.
but with Melo being a ball stopper then nothing makes sense......
If Melo does not change his game then the Knicks will go no where....
One has to assume with a starting 5 of
that between Nash and Lin they will figure a way to make it work.....
This is a line-up Dantonio would have wet his pants for
right now Knicks not trading Melo, Stat or chandler so our options are limited....
HAHAHA This thread is becoming sooooooooooooooooooooo funnny....Im done...You all have fun in your dream world where shumpert leads us to a title. LMFAO Homers everywhere on here. Is football here yet? At elast football fans have brains.
The knicks also never build around anyone EVER! They had a team made and ready to go for Amare and traded it all for Melo, Now they have a SG who fits well with Lin (IE he can defend PG's and cover Lins Defensive flaws) and then they trade him for a PG who is about to retire and suffers from an even worse defensive inability.
The LAST time the knicks tanked it was because they had screwed their roster up by making deals like this and giving away all their players who were worth a damn to begin with. . Then they started looking for quick fixes and went from one rape trade to another rape trade. And no I'm not going to change my Fandom I want to be here to remid people how much of a sh*t on stick trade this is when it explodes.
I mean Toronto wants Nash for star power. They arent even talking about going to the playoffs with Nash but here goes the NY Media and the fans who read more articles than watch games with this "Nash is the missing piece" funny I thought it was the lack of a training camp 6 days ago.
and please stop with that accountable bull****. Melo tanked cause he wanted D'antoni gone and then started playing harder once D'antoni was gone. Woodson aint telling Melo Sh*t, Amare tweeted last week what he felt about working harder to that fan. Dolan is a star phucker to his core. He would never hire a coach who would challenge a star and possibly sit them due to them not playing well. So Nash is going to do it??? Please he is going to pass the ball and that is it, there is no reason for him to challege Melo he just needs to move the ball, If Melo blackholes it fine whatever Nash passed it to him and did his job.
