    I hated trading Lonnie Shelton to Seattle for C-Marvin Webster
    I hated trading our best backcourt tandem "Sugar Ray Richardson & Ray Williams".
    I hated trading C-Bill Cartwright to the centerless-Chicago Bulls for Oakley.
    I hated trading Anthony Mason to Charlotte for a injury-prone Larry Johnson.
    I hated trading Chris Childs to Toronto after the 99 Finals when "Childs/Houston/Spree" were Gellin as our "Trio" backcourt contender.
    I was mad as hell at Patrick Ewing for crying like a baby to be traded.
    I was mad as hell when Dolan had Camby and our first round pick (C-Nene) traded to Denver for a injury-prone Mcdyess.
    I hated Layden/Isiah/Walsh

    I was happy when we traded Oakley to Toronto for Marcus Camby.
    I was happy when we sign a walking FA Kurt Thomas.
    I was happy when we sign a walking FA Mutombo.

    The Knicks in the 2012-13 season have a dominating 2-unit team .. where the Knicks 2nd-unit of "Kidd/Brewer/Novak/Kurt/and Camby" will win more games by taking each game PERSONALLY to win the Atlantic Division Title.
    As for the Knicks first-unit of Felton/Smith/Melo/Amare/Tyson .. with Felton being a younger Baron Davis without Davis halfcourt creativeness need a helluva lot of work together as a "team-unit" which showed in the 2011-12 postseason where Melo & Smith average 45 shots per game together in the series.
    I wonder what the cause/effect will be when a player mention the Knicks 2011-12 first-round postseason presence in the lockerroom this season .. will Amare finally hit his target or miss again??? LOL

    Much as Melo had to face some of the toughest teams in recent history in the WC playoffs, Ewing had the Heat, Pacers and, most unfortunately, the Bulls and Jordan to get past.

    In both cases, it's a tad unfair to consider either underachievers or even failures, but Pat undeniably is the more accomplished. We can all only hope that Melo outdoes him, I suppose.

    No one's calling you a 'mo, by the way, but unfair criticism in the case of Melo is your pet hate. Dropping it on Ewing comes across as rather........hmmmmm........sanctimonious.

    We all still love you, CA7.
    I think I'll feel the same about Melo if he doesn't get one, Ewing just hurt me when we lost in 94 I was young but remember my dad breaking the TV

    cheers!


    @SuckMyKnick (what a name!) I too, thought Zeke would be good for the Knicks when he first became part of the clan, as he made some good picks in the draft, but i think he became power crazy and starting making decisions beyond his grasp of the managerial general, like giving up too many 1st round draft picks, paying stupid money for mediocre-to-sh*t players, bad trades, and dont' forget, stupid f*ckface Dolan MADE Isiah coach/GM when he fired Larry Brown. too much to handle. i don't want to defend Isiah, i think he started off OK, even Curry looked OK when he first joined the squad. sh*t happens.

    props to New New York for excellent confessions. f*ck Alan Kahn!
    KAAAAHN!

    did you just call me a homo sperm

    I never liked the players we drafted in 1996. Among other drafts this one stuck out to me. Grunwald should have used these picks to trade up or add another veteran to our already solid roster.

    John Wallace
    Walter McCarty

    My confession is i wasnt a Knick fan originally. I actually supported the Bulls.
    The only games we got in Australia were Bulls games cause of Jordan obviously but i got to come to the States when i was 12 and it was right when New York and Chicago battled it out in the Eastern Conf Finals. I feel in love with the Knicks and never looked back.

    I thought Maciej Lampe was the next big thing out of Europe next to Dirk.

    I fell for the T'Mac hype.
    Thought Sergio Rodriguez was our PG of the future.
    Supported the Vince Carter to NYK movement, instead he went to the Nets.
    Supported the Deron Williams to NYK movement, instead, he went to the Nets.
    Wanted to kill Crawford, Curry , and Isiah all at once.
    Marbury was a great thing for NYK, just surrounded by the worst group of people. He really wanted to win in NYC, just couldn't with the unhealthy environment he was surrounded with.

    Oh man, i almost forgot about Lampe, i had really high hopes when we drafted him, even NBA Live granted him a nice rating. There were so many i believed in in the early part of the past decade it's hillarious. Vujanic, Frank Williams, KVH, Sweetney..

    At one point i thought Michael Sweetney would be an 18 and 12 guy, i thought he'd stick around for a while.

    And i fell for the Maciej Lampe hype as well as the Mardy Collins hype

    As great as those 90's teams were on defense they were horrible on offense, tough to watch at times. I just felt like Ewing was the only consistent player on offense, and Starks was overrated. Sometimes he was a horrible shooter and turnover prone, he reminds me of Jamal Crawford but with defense.

    If Stat starts f*ckin up again early this year, i want his b*tch ass outta NY

    I will admit, Ernie Grunfield were terrible in college draft picks, but exellent in NBA trades, and signing FA.

    In 1999 who would u have FIRED?
    A) Ernie Grunfield
    B) Jeff Van Gundy

    I wanted coach Jeff Van Gundy FIRED .... Marv Albert called JVG number.
