    Id call Martin and make him a priority to come back then we give collison ( Darren ) a call and gauge the interest at the mini MLE. Then we flip bargnani for another piece and well be set

    Still think our team at their best last year were capable to make the finals at the least.

    the entire roster 100% healthy injury free, playing at the best they were capable of playing then yeah I agree, we definitely could have made the Finals, probably even won it.

    Tyrus Thomas has been a major disappointment given his size and athleticism. If he is being amnestied the Bobcats will owe him $8M for the year. He can afford a veteran's minimum I would take him. There is not a lot to lose and perhaps someday he will wake up.

    I love reading these dream POSTS of who we should get . Here's the deal...a reality check for the fantasy boys here...1 Melo , Amare, Chandler and Brignani is 64 million right there. JR signed so that 68 million.....We gotta pay Felton , Shumpert, ....then try to resign Copeland and K MART. THEREFORE WE NEED A MEGA TRADE TO IMPROVE from a 5th seed to better. How does that core beat Miami, Chicago, Indiana and the new NETS?

    Tyrus Thomas is making 8mil this year due to his amnesty so he'd sign a vet min contract...

    Whether or not Tyrus Thomas is god-awful we probably cannot get him. Under the new CBA teams can bid for him, thereby reducing the amnesty cost to the team that drops him. Since we have no cap space and are limited to the veteran's minimum, I would expect us to be outbid. Some team is likely to go at least somewhat beyond the veteran's minimum. I do not think we have enough left in the min-midlevel after signing Prigioni to get beyond a veteran's minimum. The new CBA is quite harsh on teams over the cap.

    It's funny because the general consensus last year was the Knicks were no better than a 6 or 7 seed and almost no one predicted them winning the Atlantic division much less being the 2 seed. The only two teams that I see that are head and shoulders better than the Knicks are the Heat and Bulls (when healthy). To me the Pacers, Nets and Knicks are on the second tier in the East. You want to argue the Pacers and Nets are better than I got no problem with that but the gap is not huge. As much as the Pacers dominated the Knicks in the playoffs last year it still went 6 games and the Nets could not even beat a depleted Bulls team. When the Knicks were building up their team all I heard was let them prove it on the court and all this other garbage. Well they are the defending Atlantic division champs now, how about they starting getting some respect now and let the Nets prove it on the court with this roster before we crown them.

    so who says we are 5th seed some **** boy writers on espn or some website. You gotta play the games , that Nets trade is so overblown its not even funny. KG at this age gives you the same thing as a Kenyon Martin.. and PP is not going to get close to as many shots with JJ and Dwill on the court. The game is played with one ball I guess people forgot what happen to the Lakers
