    Default Q on the block

    Im a big supported of Q and what he can bring, and i think overtime hed get more at ease with the new system BUT it is a known fact that he is on the block (and a team out West will try to grab him because of his great ability to run that style of O)...

    now strictly sticking to Quentin Richardson. What do you think we should trade for? Which team will be interested? Does it fit salary restrictions?

    my original suggestion was to give Q and Ariza to Indy for Artest but that seems highly unlikely. also a trade for Watson seems imminent so could Q be in that deal for perhaps Lenard as well?

    opinions?

    Well, the way he’s been playing this season he’s one of those I won’t be to sorry to see go. I’d rather have Stephon or James gone though. No way we’d get Artest for that…. I think we’ll se Ron leaving Indy in a three team trade of some sorts. Hopefully the Knicks can include themselves and come away without some of their baggage and with some intensity players.

    when you use the word 'baggage' , you are describing almost (not all but almost) the whole team..

    i'd too like to see 'starburg' sent off... but i don't think anyone wants 'towel-head' and his 76m contract.

    there is a better chance (not much better tho) in trading jerome 'ripple' james...

    it is rumored that james dolan has forbid i. thomas from traveling anywhere... tired of paying for 'excess baggage'

    Leave Q alone! Leave the knick roster alone. It's time we hold coach Brown accountable for the losses. The following playsers should never get off that bench or be in uniform: Antonio Davis, Maurice Taylor, Malik Rose & Afernee Hardaway. Taylor and Rose should be cut after the season and Davis and Hardaway will be off the books. The starting line up should be as follows:

    PG Marbury/Robinson
    SG Crawford/Richarson
    SF Ariza/Woods
    PF Frye/Lee/Butler
    C Curry/James

    Ariza should start and his focus should be on the best offensive guard or small forard on thee opposing team. Marbury's focus needs to be also on the defensive end. Crawford and Curry should be the go-to guys on this team with Marbury as the wildcard. LET THE KIDS PLAY!!

    Apparently you have not watched any games this season and compared his defensive intensity to last season!

    Marbury played absolutely no D last season - he allowed his man to shoot from everywhere on the court while he conserved his energy for offensive purposes.

    This season, Marbury has produced some of the best defensive efforts I have ever seen.
    Why do you think Larry has him guarding NBA's elite 2's like Carter, Allen, Kobe, Redd cause his D is MUCH better than the **** that crawford and Q puts forth and plus the 2 guards all have a 3-4" height advantage over him plus 20-25 lbs more on him as well.

    well i guess we agree... somewhat...

    'towelhead' aka 'starbury' aka 'the best damn point guard in the nba' played 'zero' ' D ' last year.. i agree that he is playing much better this year.. i also agree...

    but going from zero to say a 10... on a scale of 1-100... means he still 'sux's big time...

    i have never seen a guard get beat so offen on a give and go..or a similar play... never...

    he is not the only knick to sux on 'D ', but since he is the 'best damn point guard in the nba' (sorry i am repating myself)... he should start playing like it...

    'starbury' is a good player, just not on the nets,suns,wolves,knicks...

    and unforunately for us knicks fans, this is probably the end of the line for 'starbury'... ain't nobody taking him and his 76m contract , along with his 'towel' off our hands...

    Yea, I never thought of it that way before, but this city is his last "produtive" stop. I mean its only natural for stars to fall. Most star players are embarrasments to long term contracts in their last few years. The weird thing about Marbury is that he still can manage to put up high individual numbers when he chooses. Not too many faded stars can do that, usually they ride the bench after a major injury and slowly rot away. Remember Dominque Wilkens, Tim Hardaway, Glen Rice, and even Larry Johnson's final years? They had still had their big contracts. With Marbury I can't see him going out and riding the bench like those other guys. But after soo many chances, i think the word about him not making teams better is solidified around the NBA. I mean if he was getting paid way less, then maybe some gambling GM would take a chance on him, but with that contract...hes stcuk here.

    You know I never really liked him as a player in Jersey and especially in Phoenix. But Howard Eisley starting was just soo sad, that most fans would have accepted just about any other shred of a star. Looking back at it now, maybe this move wasn't that great after all. A number of smart sports writers warned us fans about all the negatives of the trade, and I was too thirlled about having a star to pay them much attention. But then again, who esle would have took Antonio McDyse, Eisley and Lampe??? To be honest, I miss Marcus Camby! Damn you Scott Layden, this still comes back to you!

    I'm not sure I would give up on Q just yet. He's been through alot this season. He's been injured most of the season and has had to go through the death of a family member. With consistent playing time I think he'll be able to pick up the system like everyone else is finally starting to do.

    Q is NOT what the Knicks need, he never was! We have way too many offense oriented SMALL players. We either have to try to trade QR or JC, but we do not need both of these guys. Personally I would like to see them keep JC (because he plays both the 2 and the 1) and trade QR; I think JC off the bench is more valuable. As far as leaving the roster alone, this team needs some new pieces and we still have 2 expiring contracts to use to try to bring in those pieces. We also have a low #1 to use, who knows maybe we can draft another talent like Ariza with that pick. The only way the Knicks should budge on trading any of these young guys if the player(s) they get back are seasoned, talented players (like a Artest or Lewis). I would part with Frye if we were using him to get Garnett or LaBron but really no-one else. I think he will be a top scoring 4 for a long time. Lee and/or Ariza I would part with for Artest or if Seattle wants to move Lewis. I red that Denver might be interested in QR.... Maybe try to get Miller?? Another player that I think would be a great fit for this team is Shane Battier and I would see if I could pry him away from Memphis and at what cost.

    Yes Q should be added to the trade block although I don't think we'll be able to get much for him. Not that many teams are interrested in an overpaid unproductive player. Knicks have made a history of employing such players. By the way, Starbury had 23 pts 15 asts and 4 steels tonight against the Sonics. Can the move Marbuy coalition please STFU!

    its now known that the knicks continue to offer Q to Denver for Earl Watson. Denver has not pulled the trigger due to two factors...

    ONE- they are talking to Seattle in which would send Potapenko and Flip Murray to Denver for Watson

    TWO- Q has a bigger contract than Watson almost 2 million to be exact. so any trade would have to include more players. who and what else is not known. could make the situation very interesting. most believe itd include Voshon Lenard.

    I was at the game against the Sonics and Marbury, while he had a solid game still started to go to the quick shots and then reeled himself back. He was also TORCHED by Ray Allen. This is why I say it is a bad idea for him to be our 2 guard (not a 2 guard, let some other team take on that experiment). He was totally unproductive in even slowing Allen down, never mind stopping him at key moments.
