    Default Should Isiah have given up kurt and JYD to get VC?

    I think Isiah should have give up Kurt and JYD to get VC. With all the injuries this team is going through we could have really used VC.

    Yes it would of been interesting if the deal went through as VC could of played at the small forward spot and it would of allowed the Knicks to experiment with Tim Thomas at power forward or give Mike Sweetney more time.

    Carter may have had his share of injuries, but right now he is 27 and in his prime - the guy is back to his old self and playing serious ball for NJ. He and Kidd are going to single handedly take NJ back to the playoffs
    Isiah f#cked up - the whole knicks organization is a f#cking joke!

    I think this was one of Isiah's biggest mistake. Not giving more pieces to get Vince. We will have see what Isiah does in the summer.

    ****, well if that's the case then we need to get all players past their prime because right now in the 22 games for NJ, Carter is averaging 25pts, 6 rebs, 5asts with a 41% 3 pt. FG

    It did seem that when Vince was up for grabs that Isiah didn't put many pieces together to create a trade, i guess this was because we were sailing along smoothly at that stage of the season...if VC was still up for grabs now and we were playing the way we have the last month then im sure Isiah would be adding a few more pieces to a potential trade.

    V C didn't play very well before the trafe to N.J, it was hard to think he would bounce back this way...

    I think it pretty much came down to that when Carter was up for grabs Isiah didn't want to disrupt the team chemistry as at the time they were playing at the level he expected them to be at and he wasn't willing to take a risk on Carter.

    If the Knicks were struggling early im sure he would of taken the chance on VC.

    Definitely!

    I think Vince just needed a change of scenery. He is a very marketable and now he's showing that he's a top 10 player in the league. Can you believe the only barrier the Knicks were facing to get Carter was that Toronto wanted Crawford?? Doesn't that look like a no-brainer now.
