    Default what do we need?

    i realise that nothing we say can ever come trye nobody here is the gm. but can we survive with the current roster of inconsistent players,should they somehow get on the same damn page? or should we get rid of everybody we could (a davis,penny(expiring contracts),james(denver still need a big man?), taylor and rose(how the **** did we get stuck with them anyhow?) nate and lee( two promising rookies)qrich(under a different system he could succed it seems) qyntel woods(just cut him)

    well lets keep the rookie's, and add 'starbury' to the list of guys to just cut... since u can't trade him, u gotta cut him... i know it will never happen, but i can put a towel over my head and dream... can't i??

    I think there is still a market out there for Marbury. I think he's too much of a rebel to conform to LB and his style, but he still has game none the less. He may be damaged goods, but not to the extent that no one will be will to take a chance on him, especially if you package him with Lee or an expiring contract.

    Denver may have just come back into the picture with Camby going out indefinitely.

    who wants 'starbury' and his 76m contract??

    certainly not one of the contenders, and what 2nd tier team is he going to ... and make them better??

    nope he is a knick for the next few years...

    we need a Small Forward. and since we wont land artest nor it seems rose (pending a certain trade that should break within the next few days) cough:::lakers:::cough. haha. i think we should go after Al Harrington pretty hard. and i think Isiah will do that. defensively minded, hustles and has a good offensive game. i can see us making a deal for him shortly.

    i like marbs, but i think Atlanta would give us Delk & Harrington for Marbs who played in GT for college...

    i think we should try to give expiring contracts or james (cause they need a big) maybe robinson before we offer marbs but well see...point is we need a SF and to ship out robinson.

    atlanta is trying to rebuild, so doubt they will take on 'starbury' and his 76m .

    he is not a fit (as far as i can see) on any of the elite teams... nor the teams who are a 'player away' from being elite.

    that leaves the lower tier teams... most are trying to build thru the draft/etc , and taking on 76m is not going to happen...

    nope the 'best damn point guard'... is here to stay...

    true, atlanta is in rebuilding but the reason why the Hawks have been linked in many trade scenarios b/c Harrington becomes a free agent this summer. They don't want to lose him to another team and get nothing in return. Their top needs right now are PG and a big man. I don't know what Artest can bring to their team considering their depth at SF but Marbury definitely can fill their need for a PG.

    Instead of Marbuy conforming to LB, how about the coach conform to the level and type of talent that he has? Isn't that what a coach is supposed to do? Look at Pat Riley...showtime in LA in the 80's, then he came to the Knicks and took a roster of physical, hardnosed, hussle guys, and had them do just that...and he rode that to the NBA finals. Even Phil Jackson now...the man I thought could never win if he didnt have a ready made team...he's got his team playing above .500 and only 3 out of their division. Is it his ideal style of ball? No I'm sure it isnt, but he's taken the talent that he has and realized the only way they'll win is to ride it on Kobe. Rather than fighting with his superstar player in the press and belittling him, he's leaning on him and making the most of him.

    I realize that this Knicks team is in a rebuilding phase, and you've got to take your lumps before you grow....but honestly...this team should not be THIS bad. Enough of this "play the game the right way." I'm sick of that tired phase. The only reason that worked in Detroit was because Brown got Rasheed Wallace gift wrapped to him 2 yrs ago, and that was the final piece. I mean look at the Pistons now after Brown is gone. They're immensely better, and actually playing better offense. Lord knows what could have happened there last year had Brown actually taken what he had and maximized it rather than having players conform to his stubborn methods.

    I'm just not impressed with the guy so far, and I'm tired of his talking up the other team's roster while he belittles his own, and changes his rotation every game. And now he's starting to openly take shots at Marbury in the press. Honestly...it's really totally ridiculous, and he's making an embarassment of this team. How about the guy actually start coaching, and stop telling us game after game that it's his fault and that he "...has to do a better job."

    i agree larry brown suxs.. he is not the right coach for this team... but 'starbury' also has to go... probably to the end of the bench, cause ain't no market for a towel wearing point guard (point guard...ha...ha..ha), slated to make 76m over the next 4 years...

    if thomas can trade him... he should be named the exec. of the year...

    Knicks don't need anything as far as players are concerned. People said the same things about Richard Hamilton coming out of Washington and Billups. We have all it takes. We need a new COACH. that's what we need. He's horrible. He has no clue when it comes to offense. He couldn't win with a Olympic squad of Ducan, Stoudamire, Iverson, Wade, King James, C. Anthony, Marbury, Boozer, Marion, etc... Come on New Yorkers...we're wiser than that. He sucks! We have a better roster than we did last year. Yet, we can't even be competitve this year. I guarrantee if we cut ties with this coach and get Stan Van Gundy we will go on a roll. And miraculously players will become healthy, make shots, hussle and win!

    I don't know I think Larry Brown is getting the wrong end of the stick. I think we should give Larry some more time to get this right. I have the patience to at least give Larry 1 year and then lets see if there is really improvement in the team.
