    Default Steve Francis!?!?!?

    Isiah is really out to lunch on this one. He is a carbon copy of Marbury, very good player, but now what we need. Hey I have an idea, let's trade for Iverson as well.
    The only thing that I can say is that as much as Isiah Thomas is an idiot, James Dolan is even further out there if he belives that Francis is the solution or that getting Francis is the bigger part of a master plan to get Garnet.
    Jim and Isiah, I have only one thing to say; "The first step towards solving a problem is admitting you have it....."

    I would love it if we turned around and sent Francis to LA for Odom, then it might be a decent trade.

    I really did not think we needed this deal. Last night was the first night with both Marbusry and Rose on the floor together and even though Miami throttled us, have Rose, Marbury, Curry and Frye on the floor together spreads the defense much more. Given some time that could have jelled.

    I would love to beleive that we will use Francis to get Garnett in the offseason, but in the words of Aerosmith, "Dream On", that ain't gonna happen

    Getting Francis doesn't make much sense at this moment, so I'm confident there is a plan on the way.

    But one thing is for sure... we did steal him. Think about it people, we only gave up Trevor and Penny.

    DAMN, that's a heist in any league.

    mdelton i dont report anything but facts on this site. everything is sparked by truth. so when i tell you the only reason Francis is here is because Isiah is trying to stockpile enough talent to land KG in the offseason. you should believe me...ask Larry & Dolan who he sold on the deal.

    Yeah and it also allows an opposing offense to score about 140 points a game.

    NYKnicks15: Even if that is the reason why this trade was made (I don't believe it either, because Isiah has shown he doesn't have this kind of foresight) it is extremely risky to throw your eggs in such a basket becuase the chances of it happening seem very slim.

    Larry should seriously consider to let these guys have their way on offense. The season is practically lost anyway, so he should just relax on the offensive side and let these guys use their skills, which are best suited for the run and gun, and just focus on teaching defense.

    The summer will be good, and like al preseasons, we will be excited once again. Hoepfully, next season is really the one where the team breaks out.

    Listen, the reality here is that Isiah's poker face wasn't as good as the GM from Orlando. Orlando's goal was to have the most cap room for the 2007 free agents. Taylor's contract would have given them that! If Isiah would have used PH for any other trade, I trully believe he would have still gotten Frances for Crawford and Taylor. See, the issue is all the GM's in the league know that we are so desperate for any type of change, at any given time, that we have no back bone and can be used to dump on. That is the truth, plain and simple. If Orlando believed for a second that Isiah would just let the contract expire, rather than take on a player that reazlly wasn't needed that bad, they might have gave in a little. But every GM can stand their ground with out even batting an eye lash. There is no healthy fear or even respect for the Knicks.

    DOWN WITH ISIAH!!!!

    I will give isiah the benefit of the doubt and say he will do something amazing wit all these contracts so lets not get mad yet...i think he has some sort of plan to try and get all contracts to end in the same year so he ends up under the cap...Call me crazy but just think about it

    Ok...so then you're crazy...Isiah has shown during his tenure that he's totally clueless and has not shown any ounce of a plan. Everyone is talking about this Garnett thing, but how likely is it that the T'Wolves woudl want to take back people like Francis or Rose, who have max contracts that are at least 2-3 yrs long, and aren't expiring. Only a GM like Isiah takes on contracts like that when he's trying to "rebuild" and unfortunately for us, he's our GM.

    RMK putting your Isiah hates aside. Think about this logically. Here infact I'll give you a little insight. Kevin Garnett has been pushing for a trade to NY since the offseason but out of respect has given McHale and owner Glen Taylor a chance to please him...obviously not happening.

    Jalen Rose this offseason actually is an expiring contract. so I dont know what you're talking about there. and why would Minny want Steve Francis for KG. THEY DONT. theyd love to keep the big ticket. but if your going to get something for him you mind as well get an allstar player.

    also KG wants to be in NY. he wants to play with Steph again. and Glen Taylor has so much love and respect for KG for signing for cheap so they could sign Spree and build a team. for stickin around when they traded away Cassell. for giving the franchise a chance. that he will do whatever KG asks, when KG asks. no matter what.

    dont ask reporters or news reporters. dont ask Steph. dont ask KG. dont ask Isiah or McHale. they wont speak on this. and for some it wouldnt be smart too. but if you ask KG's friends...theyll tell you whats up.
