    Default Would you amnesty............Amar'e?!

    This is my 2 cents:

    there are superstars in this league who have relationships off the court and want to play with each other but above anything else, they want to win.

    If you can get lets say CP3 and D12 to commit to wanting to sign with us in 2012, would you just amnesty amare, free up his cap hold back and sign those 2?
    As much as CP3 wanted the stat/melo tandem, im sure he'll get over it in a nyc minute, when he sees he can team up with melo/d12. All this is contingent on ofcourse both NO and Orl not trading them during midseason, which im almost 100% sure they will since they dont wanna b lebroned or boshed.

    I would rather amnesty CA, that has nothing to do with his work on the court, just don't like the guy. Amare gambled, took a risk and joined the organization, Carmelo is kind of LeBron, he would certainly enjoy his own "decision time" show live on ESPN if he got chance to. I didn't want him in a Knicks jersey, so if there is anyone on the roster I want to get rid of, it's definately Carmelo.

    definitely not. and fellas we cant trash the faces of our franchise now. like it or not these guys are the ones that will lead the effort to bring us a title both WANT to be here and both WANT to bring a title here and have sort of made it their goals. so at the very least we owe them our support as fans. Media and **** aside both are top5-10 talents in the entire league so their definitely worth it.

    Default More to the point

    More to the point, we should not trash the two players (Amare and Melo) that wanted to come to and love NYC.

    Couldn't agree more.

    Amar'e came here because Phoenix didn't offer him the max. I respect Amar'e and all, but he didn't just come to the Knicks to prove himself as a leader.

    As PRiNCE said, let's support them, not talk about shipping them out.

    Once we FIRE Dantoni the Knicks $100M player Amare's knees
    will be safe throughout the remainder of his contract.

    If u notice Knicks owner Dolan made some quick decision making during
    midseason (Melo-trade) to save his $100M player knees from getting injured
    in his first season as a Knicks. Headcoach Dantoni had Amare running for 38
    minutes per game (even in back to back games), where other Knicks players
    (Gallo, Chandler, and Turiaf) were getting injuries (pulled-muscle) early in the
    season from so much running.

    The Knicks dont have a player on the roster to use the amnesty-clause on.
    Balkman's $1.7M contract is worth every penny on the defensive end of the
    court (for STOPS) backing up Melo for 18 to 20 minutes per game.

    The amnesty-clause will hurt the Knicks by way of eastern conference
    oponents....Miami using it on Millers $6M contract, the Magic using it on
    Arenas big contract, Pacers using it on Ford contract, the Cavs who we
    are 0-4 against will use it on Baron Davis big contract, Ect., ect..

    balkman will never see playing time

    Especially with Fields, Shawne Williams, and Derek Williams improving their game( D williams is working on his outside shot and Mike D loves shooting)

    All of these guys have a better chance playing than Balkman will.

    Balkman will be there in case of injuries and garbage minutes.

    The Knicks have 9 players under-contract at $60.6M....we are minus 6
    players which makes this Post ins@ne

    Mike Damnphony dont play any defensive-players....Shawn & Derek talent is
    not better than Balkman. I would rather have Balkman defending Lebron/Bosh
    switch, or Odom/Gasol switch, or Deng/Boozer switch for 16 minutes a game
    rather than watch all the above players score at will on Shawn & Derek
    who offense may give us at best 6 pts, 2 rbs in 20 minutes.

    Anthony Randolph is an above the rim athletic shotblocker/rebounder/alleyoop/
    putback player that Damnphony didnt give garbage time to.

    well lets see, we have a future pg with court vision, we have a center to provide rebounds and block shots.......and stat is still stat


    for every one who was on stat's nuts and praising him, you may take them out of your mouths now, thank you!!!!!
    always sell high people always sell high!
    ironic caveat however that if we did amnesty stat, we wouldnt have needed to amnesty billups to pick up chandler, thus we wouldnt have picked up jlin, kmart signs with us, etc.....the staturfly effect.
