    Wow things are heating up. Jamal Crawford is kind of like antoine walker but worse. They both turn the ball over and take stupid shots, but antoine at least rebounds, posts up, and passes. Crawford can pass decently and score SOMETIMES, but hes a turnover waiting to happen and a 3 pointer waiting to be missed. Malik Rose hasnt done Sh*t for us this year. F**k it, trade him for earl watson. Watson can help out the team a lot more then people would expect. He's a Larry Brown type of player and hes not old like eric snow. Kevin Ollie, well i just hate players from uconn even though im from CT. F**k Ollie. And F**k Jerome James hes the biggest piece of sh*t I've seen since Oliver Miller. I said before I would take Greg Ostertag over Jerome James. If theres anyway they could trade James straight up for watson, I pray they do it. If not, then get rid of malik rose.

    I doubt that Denver would trade Watson for Malik. Just think about it, Denver just lost Nene to an injury and they going to replace him by trading for an under sized Malik Rose who hasn't done jack for the Knicks so far with the minutes he has put on the floor. No way, the way I see it is Denver trying to get Mo Taylor from us since his contract is expiring soon as well and he would be an upgrade from Nene. Now if we could get them to trade straight up for James, its a no brainer. I was one of his biggest supporters when he was signed to the Knicks because we didn't have any centers on the squad and we needed something to clog up the middle, but now that we got Curry, Davis could back up the Center. James for Watson would be awesome, with Davis out of the PF rotation there would be more room for Lee and Frye to come up front. I still really hope that Lee will get some SF minutes from Larry Brown, I LOVE THIS KID !!!

    Well if Earl Watson wants to come to New York. Who would we give up? The Nuggets want big relief, but I don't see it. Maurice Taylor is an expiring contract, maybe we can shake him off and send him to Denver.

    Why is everyone so anxious to trade away all our soon-to-be-expiring contracts (eg Penny and Mo Taylor). Here's a radical idea: lets let the contracts actually expire and get under the salary cap for the first time in about a decade. Then maybe we've got a chance to sign a big name free agent in a couple of seasons. Unless we can package some of the expiring contracts for KG or Pierce then there is no point giving them up for a backup player - we already have those!

    And please let's not have anymore of this nonsense that JC is the best backup guard in the NBA. He might just have the highest ppg but thats only because he jacks up the ball from anyplace on the court - I think they should change his jersey number to 5/14 - that's his usual FG line.

    radical idea would be to learn about the salary cap before you say stuff like that man haha. no offense but 49.5 is the cap...and even if we let davis, penny, taylors (2 years) and houstons gets wiped away WE STILL WONT BE UNDER THE CAP. and this post is about getting rid of Malik for Watson..Malik has three years left, not so much an expiring contract wouldnt u say?

    nyknicks15: its true they can't get under the salary cap this offseason, but so what. You have to start somewhere. There is no quick fix for the Knicks bloated payroll, but its all about taking steps in the right direction. If the Knicks continue to trade away their expiring contracts for average players, they won't be a contender anytime soon and they will NEVER be able to sign a decent free-agent, let alone an elite one. I will say it again - unless the Knicks can trade some of their contracts for an elite player - there is NO POINT trading them for mediocre players. That's what got them in so much financial trouble in the first place!

    And you're right - this post is about Rose and Watson, so I'll shut up now about the salary cap...

    the best back up point gaurd in the league is ben gordon or maybe nick van exel and the best back up shooting gaurd id mike finely he's a way better shooter than crawford he's consistent unlike crawford and he's not undersized like crawford, crawford weighs about 160 pounds dont you notice other shooting gaurds bully him around when they post up. crawford sucks

    finley has been a lifelong starter, so he doesnt really count as a "backup" even though he may be one now...hes a backup on the best team on the nba, so hes sort of an exception...AND...look at finleys numbers versus crawfords:
    finley - 7.3 points on 33.3% shooting, crawford - 10.2 on 40%+
    so as of now, crawford IS better

    nick van exel sucks...crawford is better than him...

    ben gordon wont be a back up much longer. and his field goal percentage sucks worse than crawford. and at this point in their respective careers, id say crawford IS better.

    dont get it twisted, i am not a crawford fan, i never was, even when he was first acquired and all the naive fans were saying isiahs so great for getting him, i knew it was nothing special...

    i am just sick of all these marginal, useless trades that isiah makes...

    like getting rose and taylor, like signing james and baker to an MLE, like trading van horn for tiny tim and nazr and then trading away tiny tim and nazr not too shortly thereafter, it seems like pretty much every acquisition isiah has made has turned out to NOT be good (with the exception of marbury, and even that is debatable)

    getting EARL WATSON would be another MARIGNAL TRADE and in my opinon, actually CLOG the point guard spot. WE DONT NEED A POINT GUARD!!! that would be like the lakers saying we need a back up shooting guard or the miami heat saying we need a backup center. yeah, u know what, they really might, but its NOT THEIR BIGGEST CONCERN when their starter at that position is the best player on the team.

    we need a shooter. we need to give channing frye a starting job. we need to better utilize crawford off the bench. QRich needs to get healthy and start hitting some bombs from downtown that put daggers in the other teams hearts. eddy curry needs to become a beast instead of playing good one minute and disappearing the next.

    larry brown needs to utilize his players better. this team has the talent to win at least 40 games. there's no excuses for larry if they dont.

    and david lee should start the 3.

    frye/curry at the 4/5 (sometimes curry will be better suited to play the 5 and sometimes frye, depending on the opposing teams roster)

    lee at the 3. he will create many extra posessions for the team.

    qrich at the 2.

    marbuary at the 1.

    run some pick and rolls with marbury and frye. play inside out with curry posting up and using his beast-like body to push some guy around and get an easy shot. if he misses, hopefuly lee or frye will be there to finish up. or, if curry gets a double team, kick it out to qrich and let him do his thing from behind the arc. let marbury penetrate and kick the ball out to qrich.

    come on larry...u arent impressing me with ure coaching skills...

    jamal crawford is not better than ben gordan and will never be better than him neither and micheal finely will light up jamal crawford and micheal finely is a better shooter than jamal and he takes good shots and nick van exel is a great backup period.

    look at their stats:

    Mike Finley: 7.3 points per game, .333 FG %, .333 3 pt FG%

    Nick Van Exel: 8 points per game, lousy defender, cancer in the locker room, horrible attitude

    ben gordon: 30.6 minutes per game (starter-type minutes), only 2.8 assists per game (horrible for someone thats supposedly a 1 or a 2), liablity on defense against bigger shooting guards, cant quite play the point guard position because he cant pass the ball (ball hog, takes LOUSY SHOTS), .378 FG% (PATHETIC), 15.8 points per game. ben gordon wont be comming off the bench forever. hes not really a backup.

    jamal crawford: 10.2 points per game on 413 fg% (not bad). as he gets utilized better, he will bring his average up to 13 points and assists up to 4-5.

    jamal crawford is incomplete, hes not really good at anything.


    HES STILL MUCH BETTER THAN EARL WATSON. AND HES MORE THAN AN ADEQUATE BACKUP POINT GUARD. WE DONT NEED WATSON AND WE DONT NEED A BACKUP POINT GUARD, IT IS NOT ONE OF OUR PRESSING NEEDS.
