Nice math work there, CoolC. All of that cash for STAT to tempt LeBron James to be a Knick, and look how it's payed off. 6 months of greatness (still only hovered around .500), followed by a year and a half of disappointment. Nice one, James.
The fire extinguisher was the low point, of course, but the lack of ball IQ this guy's displayed throughout the .400(ish) record he and Anthony have managed to produce together - I'm sick of this non stop f*ckery, honestly. And he's signed for 2 seasons after the one that's on the brink of starting.
He has an early termination option in that final year, but why would he bother? He's the league's worst and uninsured contract, making him the hardest player in the league to trade. He'll take that final year on and probably play 1/3 of the season.
We're stuck with him, for sh*tter or for worse.
I'm still dirty at that bag of douche for snaking his way in to the Melo trade. Sure, he got d*ck all for his efforts, but he opportunistically involved himself with Dolan's stupidity.
Add to that D'Antoni's disinterest in Corey Brewer, who we got from Minny for Curry's expiring (half paid), Anthony Randolph and $3M cash, because he didn't need a defensive wing.
It was retarded. Then, to add to the idiocy, Dolan thinks he can swing a trade for CP3 with Chauncey Billups as the chief piece of interest.
David Khan is probably the stupidest GM, but comparatively with Dolan, he's a f'ing cosmonaut.
Amare needs to be very aware that the team is moving on without him. Should they get off to a good start, he may be asked to become a bench player. Woody seems like he prefers chemistry and consistency with his lineups. Funny how I called this extended injury time last week. You always have to think the worse when it comes to Amarknee.
Stoudemire (knee) is expected to miss at least the first six weeks of the regular season, ESPN reports.It's a tough break for Stoudemire, as it was originally thought his knee injury would keep him out only two-to-three weeks.
I don't even care anymore, let's get rid of this dude.I tried to defend him, i really did, but i'm through, it's time to move on.
Im not surprised one bit, i predicted all of this. I hope to never see Stat in a Knicks uniform again...
With that being said, I havent let out a load in a few days so im gonna head over to tubegalore then go back to bed for a few hours with my splooge soaking through my under shirt into my stomach skin. See yall later
The bad news for this season began when Shumpert went down last Spring. This just reminded us NYK fans that this is the Knicks, and this is par for the course: pain. We were foolish to get excited, right?
Seriously... This isn't good news but it could be worse. Amar'e had a bone bruise on the knee, and that requires rest. This latest cist problem will get him that rest. If he misses 2 months... 25-33 percent of the season, but returns in Jan... gets sharp by Feb... in NBA form by March and then healthy and strong come May... GREAT.
It's better he misses the beg. of the season than the end.
Plus, this helps on the chemistry front b/c it keeps Camby, Cope, Thomas in the mix; gets minutes for Novak and Pablo.
This team can truly become Melo's team. Get an identity and then slide Amare & Shump in come Jan-Feb.
It's like making a deal for 2 starters at the deadline.
Now it;s up to the other guys to keep things afloat while Shump & STAT are out. We'll see how that goes. 11-17 would be terrible.
I agree with Crazy, as soon as Amar'e looks serviceable again we should deal him to the Magic or some other bottom feeder. The funny thing is we will probably need to give up some picks just so some ******* of a GM will take him.
I thought I'd never say this but, I MISS GIRAFFERIES now..
It's wishful thinking you trade him. Stat is just another dismal failure of the D'Antoni era, if D'Ants wasn't the Knicks coach I doubt we would have signed him.
