Birdman is everything I wish Jared Jeffries could have been but never was going to be (except for the off the court stuff obviously):
I wonder what kind of deal Craig Brackins got to go play in Italy. That guy really would've been perfect backing up Amar'e. 6'10", young with a lot of potential and big-time scoring skills. Decent rebounder too. Just gonna come on here to talk him up again and I saw that he signed to play in Italy. Oh well. Anyone have the particulars on the contract he signed? Can't find any info. on it...
could've, would've, should've? who cares?
sign the Birdman! that video has more highlights than Girafferies entire career! at least the Birdman can fly on the offensive AND defensive end. with a solid defensive core around him, the Knicks D will be shored up the entire game! Chrish Swish???!!!!
btw, what kind of child porn was on Birdieman's computer, what age group did he like,
and did he prefer little boys or girls?
just kidding... IRRELEVANT!!
Not sure how valid this is, but I just read this on Rotoworld:

Updating a previous item, Chris Smith's contract with the Knicks is for two years and is partially guaranteed.
Not only did the team give J.R.'s brother a two-year deal, they also gave him one that is partially guaranteed. According to beat writer Al Iannazzone, there is a "good shot" that Smith will be on the roster when the season begins. Smith did not start a single summer league game and shot under 30 percent during his audition. We think it's fair to say that some eyebrows should be raised here, but we can't say it surprises us at all. Aug 2 - 9:32 AM

**** him then.. He = Birdman at this point of his career.
Whatever happens he will probably end up signing for the vet's min.
K-mart never even lived up to his 90 million contract in Denver and at this point in his career he should be trying to win a ring instead of looking for a big payday. I'd love him on this team but I hate the way he's acting right now.
If there is one person that I think the Knicks should sign to complete their roster it is Patrick Ewing. Pat Ewing at 50 years old deserves a second chance with the Knicks after he was disrespectfully traded away 12 years ago for a bag of basketballs.
I think he could fill in the role very well as the Knicks third center since he isn't that far apart in age from Kidd, Camby and Thomas. All Ewing really has to do to contribute is stand in the paint of the opposing team's side of the court and he will create more defensive nightmares for opposing centers than Vin Baker, Eddy Curry, and Jerome James ever did in their tenure with the Knicks.
I also think that having Ewing here would help guys like Melo and Amar'e humble themselves since they will be sharing the lockeroom and the floor with someone who is a top 5 all time Knick player, one of the 50 greatest NBA players and an NBA hall of famer.

I think Ewing should be hired as an assistant to work with the big men.

Lou Amundson's agent says he's had an ongoing dialogue w/the #Knicks about Lou landing in NY. Of note: NY can only offer veteran's minimum.
