allan houston has definetely done a lot for the knicks, there's no questin about it. but the fact remains, his contract is absurd and he clogs up the payroll and prevents the knicks from signing other better players. its not smart (and maybe a little cold hearted) to judge a player by what he has done for you in the past, you have to think about what he can do for you in the present and the future. and houston cant do much for us. we should have gotten rid of him at the beginning of the season when it might have been possible to do so, but at this point i dont know if there would be any takers.
