Okay. We kind of talked about this on the Kurt Thomas part.
Wally is another swingman and we have plenty of them right now. Itd make us smaller and a few things stick out right now about that trade.
1. TIM THOMAS---Thomas sad to say isnt as bad as hes cracked up to be. Right now since hes been focusing on his game and is averaging about the same Wally is. They are both putting 5-8 buckets in a night
2. TREVOR ARIZA---Ariza is a GREAT young player and honestly our future at the SF position. He drives to the lane, hes energetic, he throws down some good dunks (and the garden loves it), he can block, he can steal, and he is working on his jump shot...most importantly HE ISNT SCARED did you see how he drove to the lane with SHAQ standing there!!! Incredible. He is amazing and I hope we can resign him next year and he doesnt leave us for someone who will pay him more. BUT he is unexperienced still and is learning on a game to game basis. With Wally, Tim and Ariza...Ariza will definetely lose the minutes and spot on the rotation he has rightfully earned!
3. MIKE SWEETNEY---Sweetney is about the same height as Kurt (1 inch smaller), but hes young he needs to work on his stamina and I honestly dont think he could last a full game. The only backup he has is Jerome Williams (and I am not dissing the JYD hes been great to us in many ways but hes not a big scorer) I am just bringing up the point. Plus he's an inside scorer, and just that, Kurt can do that all. Outside scoring, pick and roll, inside scoring, occasionally set up a play and he is good defender which I keep trying to SPOTLIGHT cause do you really think if we had Sweetney on KG that whole game we would of even been close to having a chance to win it? I love Sweetney but he needs to learn a few things yet and come into his own. and behind Kurt he has time. If this trade is all about winning more games, you think just pushing Sweetney out there all of a sudden with big minutes is gonna do that?
4. TRADE---If we are going to trade Kurt Thomas AT ALL, save it for next year, well have quite a package with Penny and Tim (on their last years) and maybe we can pull of a blockbuster...
POINT being dont trade Kurt for WALLYWORLD....GO KNICKS
