    If it's the gif I think it is Melo/Footlocker...In the original he says something to the effect of...."did you hear footlocker got their new shipment of Jordan's in" in the edited gif....he's saying something to the effect of...."did you hear the Nets run better ISOs with Joe"

    ARRIVEDERCHI PABLO!

    Then 86 everyone else. The only player I'd tolerate making it through the fire is TimBug Jr....Unfortunately we have to include him on deals to move the rest of the ALBATROCITIES.
    Prigioni might be in better shape than a lot of younger players in the league. Prigioni is a veteran who keeps the ball moving. Even if we get a good young PG, non-combo guards are rare now. The Knicks might need him even more if Woodson is still on the team. The Knicks would need a healthy version of last season's team as long as Woodson is on the team.

    If that's what's being said in that commercial, still don't get it.

    Edit: Well I do, I think.

    Naaahhhh we don't need Prigoni. Actually had we not shot our wad to sign him so quickly we could have had someone like D.J. Augustin(making differences for the Bulls since arriving), or a post of mine copied from a thread before the season...signed someone from this list with a little creativity. Remember everyone wants to play in NYC<-------------------- or is that a myth?

    I guess the point is since Melo left TheGarden to go get some better/newer kicks, then Melo would leave to Brooklyn to go play in a better ISO system.

    Taking a guess....

    Prigioni should be the starting PG playing 30 minutes a game.
    The guy never knows his role....even today Woody plays him for 6 minutes then sits him until the last 24 seconds...why ??????

    Just let him run the point...

    In the 3rd...Felton airballs , then throws up a turnover and Woody takes Prigs out....

    Woody then yelling at Shump as Felton falls apart...Guys do not know where they stand,,,,,,

    Today Melo for 90% of the game did not play ISO Ball and had absolutely nobody to pass it to.....

    Chandler looks completely lost.........

    so hard to watch the Knicks.........


    Just wish Woody would bench felton as the starter only and use Prigioni as the starter....

    I mean how many times can woody try the samething and fail and him not see it.......

    I definitely think we had a shot at Nate. I think we might have been able to keep Prigioni too.

    With Collison I have a feeling he only accepted that because of the Clippers were on the rise and Chris Paul was his teammate in New Orleans. Still though, it's surprising he took that pay-cut.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Dolan refuses to let Nate come back. So ridiculous to not offer a young, athletic, explosive PG who's not gonna ask for much at all and seemed to love being on the Knicks.

    I will give Kidd very small credit here....He does not let the Player's clout(career/name) take hold of the team. He's benched Paul/Garnett/Williams all coming back from injury this year to not disrupt team rhythm(the little they've had) or to experiment with his depth slightly. They've also managed to check their egos at the door putting lots of faith in Shaun Livingston running the team. The only player who had slight difficulty in adjusting was Pierce returning from his broken hand but even he fell in line quickly.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Deron come off the bench again.

    Coach has lost his players. Simple.

    Unfortuately for the knicks fans Melo will be kept as the owner knows he will be the only reason people will watch the knicks play ball whether your a melo lover or hater! Plus his name sells merchandise!

    If you want to follow the Knicks expect the next 3 years to be a rough ride!

    What about Livingston? What about Mo Williams?

    I never cared for Williams when I saw him. I didn't follow his career so I dunno. Livingston has been good from what I've seen of him this season.

    Devin Harris has been injured so much that I wouldn't offer him more than the vet. minimum, if even that, sad to say.

    I thought too many people jumped on Kidd too early and called him a failure too soon.. I believe he will be a great NBA coach, not now but in the future.
