    Default Damon Stoudamire a knick???

    alright im sure uve all read the article about how damon said hed love to be a knick. I was just curious about what u guys thought? Personally i think with houston being iffy i think we need a good three point shooter in our arsenal, and thats where damon stoudamire can fill gaps. On offense right now whast our biggest problem... beating the zone, shooters beat zones....without houston we have no shooters. Go for stoudamire and a second round gaurd with the draft pick as well i say, and dont resign jermaine jackson and penny to meet roster limit. Helps us cap wise as well

    I would love to get Damon Stoudamire over here. He is a great shooter and has good quickness. Sure, get him over here. If we can get him for cheap.

    We still have Penny on the books next year. The only way we wouldn't have him is if we either bought him out or traded him. And the only way I'd be willing to accept Damon is if we had a big center, like Johan Petro, then it could be a good signing. But right now, our team is too small to compete with the bigger teams. And adding Mighty Mouse wouldn't help much in that catagory.

    thanks rady, i think adding Stoudemire would benefit us greatly... if we can get hi, then we can concentrate more on getting a big man in the draft... i would love this guy on our team..

    i would have loved to get damon stouadmire at the BEGINNING of the season, because he has a contract that expires. but now hes 30+, only 5'10, and as a small guy, his game will deteriorate quickly here on in in his career.

    but if we could have traded penny for damon, id love to do that, or even get rid of any other bums on our team that get paid too much.

    I think Stoudemire would be good at a mid level exception, because if he doesn't fit, he's easier to trade in a package of some sort. I also think that with another PG of that caliber, fans are ensured that Crawford & Marbury play better, be cause both then realize that they can become expendable. Which will hopefully keep both guys more hungry than either has seemed this year. I think Damon is a better leader as well, so he would be a guy that would be more vocal.

    Damon would be a great backup guard for Steph.. He can shoot the ball and penetrate well. He could also help us in close games with that incredible free throw shooting.

    definently.. i would feel a lot better in tight games, giving steph a rest down the stretch, knowing damon's running the show.. not Jermaine Jackson

    i think if we get him it will be good for the bench. as a leader? no.

    Peach i think mistakenly had it right..
    if we can get hi
    ...isnt this guy the one who turned the Portland Trailblazers into the "PotLand Blazers"??? hes the guy who took attention away from his team with his childlike drug use. a leader? not in the least.

    stats? hes very over rated as a "great shooter"...hmm .410FG% and .362 3PT% for his career...good but clutch or great?? no hes not in the top 50 for any...besides for attempts of the 3pts (and makes but if you shoot alot your eventually going to make alot)...

    im not saying hes bad but for a 10 year, 5'10 PG should we be overly eager to spend all of our midlevel exception on him??? not in the least...

    if we can get him for 2 million, then pull that trigger...but there will be other teams going after him (Lakers. Rockets. etc.) so anything higher (no pun intended)? no, well atleast not to me

    You don't win rookie of the year for fun. I think Damon is a great point guard, and I think that his abilty to strech defences with a more consistant jumper would help the Knicks. If you think that I'm wroung look at Marbury Vs. Damon

    Damon Vs. Marbury
    FG% 3p% FT% FG% 3p% FT%
    .400 .391 .928 .459 .317 .832

    with better players Damon would seemingly be better than Marbury in our offense. Plus he got better court vision. I think the knicks can't lose to have 2 starters. Plus, if you don't realize, Damon was there reason why the Raptors beat the Bulls & MJ In 96 & 97, both years the Bulls went on to win the NBA title. Just a thought.

    first off the past is the past and second do you mean in season games? Do you know how many season games there are anyone can beat anyone on any given night...and in 06 aswell as 07 Stoudamire was not the only name on that team...

    and i do think we realize he was there but so was Chauncey Billups, Doug Christie, Marcus Camby, Alvin Williams oh and a guy i think hes still around his names Tracy McGrady! in 97...in 96 they still had a starting lineup that included Camby and Christie

    hes a good player but do i think we good give up are whole mid level exception for him no, i think 2.5 is where we draw the line...

    and dont minipulate the stats man...marbury has better field goal percentage (by .62)..more steals..more assists...i dont understand howd he be seemingly better??

    were talking about the same guy who played with Camby, Christie, McGrady, Billups, Grant, Kemp, Rider, D. Davis, Pippen, Smith, JJackson, Randolph, R. Wallace, Miles, Wells, J. O'Neal over his career and ur saying he needs better players???

    lets just not go overboard, good player? yes. good shooter? yes. but worth enough to say hed be better then marbury for us?? no...stoudamire when averaging 35 mpg adds 6.6 apg (career total)...marbury 8.3...

    lets just not go overboard...
