    The team hasn't looked this good in a long time. I like Jackie Butler too but some dude was ripping him on Realgm.com; saying his defense was horrendous.....I haven't seen him on the court long enough to judge, and been too busy watching the new players in summer league to even notice him on defense, I do see him get those rebounds and making some shots though. Am up in the air on this one; would like to see him come back rather than sundov thats for sure.

    one thing i always notice, if we(i include my self in this)dont like something that is being done we throw around others players names that we say could better. thats all good but ever stop to think that its not just one gm that can make a deal,it take two(like rob base said).sure i personally would have like to see kwame brown here but we had nothing to offer washington,they wanted a shooting guard/forward type(and god knows they dont want penny) lakers offered up caron butler whenb we would not part with qrich. i like the idea of mixing and matching players that might fit,but they just ideas,im glad to be apart of sych an opinionated diverse group of knickerbockers,but we all gatta realize if it wasnt done maybe IT couldnt get it done. and least james is a true 7 footer and as he showed in the playoffs when motivated he can produce lets look forward to next year

    why does every gm in this league seem to overplay and overvalue big men???? if u look at most of the bad contracts in this league, they are almost always given to big men who the gm's hoped would develop into better players but never did. same thing with the draft: "we took the best big man available" - bab**** on taking villanueva at 7.

    jerome james is a ****ing scrub. at least frye is a hard worker and wants to get better. james is a bum.

    just when i was about to start to actually applaud isiah for some of his recent moves (getting nate and lee), here i am again wonddering what the hell is wrong with him.

    OK, I agree with you that James is no superstar, but he is a big man which we desperatively need in the lineup before the season starts. From the looks of trades out there if Isiah didn't make the move now, we would end up with noone at center except frye and sundov this offseason. All the big man out there are out of the Knicks reach. The other teams are not interested in the Knicks sign and trades with sweetney being the biggest pawn.

    OK so you critizing Isiah for making this move which I understand because you don't like James and you don't think he is good enough. But what sugestions do you have???

    Who are the Knicks supposed to get with the MLE? Everyone else out there can get the more than the MLE other than Hunter from other teams. Don't forget that every other team in the NBA can make James the same offer as the Knicks did...so lets say for example we went and offered it to Swift, do you really think other NBA teams wouldn't top our offer???

    Like I said before, this is a good move considering all we got is the MLE to work with; everything else is sign and trade HOPES & DREAMS...
