    1. We can't afford cp3 unless we dump one of our enormous contracts in stat, melo, and chandler.
    2. Cp3 already said several times he wants to stay in la. Why would he want to recruit billups so hard back on the clippers if he isn't willing to stay himself?

    All these threads about getting superstars like cp3 and dwight howard are pipe dreams.

    This year is the make or break year. Stat is NO longer the main guy in NY. This is Melo's team and push come to shove if any one of our BIG contracts would be moved well now you know who. To make it happen is NOT out of the question, anything can be done. With a S&T from L.A. to N.Y. CP3 could be a part of the Knicks very easily.

    Now really why would CP3 come out and say I want to be a New York Knick when his current contract is with the Clippers. Why would he put himself in a negative business situation by stating something like that. He has to keep his best interests close to his vest, not open to the public to be scrutinized. We all know he wants to play with Melo, that is public knowledge. When the time comes, after this season he will have that choice to sign the extension he is reluctant to sign right now or ask for a trade to New York.

    But the doors on him joining Melo in NY is NOT out of the question!

    Only way we have a shot at Paul is if we can trade Lin for him and some other players...but I DOUBT any of that will ever happen.

    Paul is part of a very good team in LA! He is staying there, especailly since Blake Griffin just signed a 5 year extension.

    We have a solid team. And people underestimate Lin.

    Lin is not Paul but Lin can be an allstar.

    if Lin can play fairly well this season, we would have a chance at a trade with the clips if chris paul goes all dwight on the clips

    If he goes all Dwight on the Clippers then that's even more reason not to get him.

    Precisely. Gotta feel for the Magic's former GM and FO. Dudes lost their bread and butter to a whiney fool.

    If our current PG sitution flops I can see it happening. If there's a chance of us getting him... we will have him. The Knicks will continue to improve the team and appease their core with complementing talent. CP3 definitely will be endorsed by Melo, Woody and others.

    If our current PG situation flops, we won't have enough pieces to trade to the clippers for CP3. Getting CP3 is dependent on Lin/Kidd succeeding.

    That trade would have to involve Lin and the clippers aren't gonna trade an all star pg if what they're getting in return is gonna be a one hit wonder if that's what Lin turns out to be.

    True to a point, but I've seen stranger things happen. I wouldn't count out another gutting of the team depending on how the team actually plays (together). Players still can retain their value if their style of playing just didn't fit the style of the team, their individual talents may be of some use elsewhere..

    Interesting scenario, Griffin is off the Olympic team with knee problem, if it's an ACL, he's out for the season, Clippers go in the tank, Paul wants out?
