    Default Isiah makes an offer to Atlanta.

    I'm still searching for word on what that offer is exactly but I heard about this I'd say earlier in the week and thankfully Al Harrington had confirmed it. I believe he stated that LA (Lakers) have also made an offer but he sees it working out to where he goes to either Golden State or Indiana.

    Indiana scenario still doesnt make sense to me when you draft Shawne Williams, James White and traded for Marquis Daniels and already have Stephen Jackson. I mean okay say you say "oh they can use him at PF".. well does that mean you are gonna put the fragile O'Neal at C all year? That's insane.

    I hope I can get more word.. or even better that trade goes off before I get a chance to say something haha

    If he ends up with either Golden State or Indiana is fine with me. He apparently wants a boat load of money and these sign and trades usually ends up with the buyer taking on a bunch of bad contracts along with the original player that they wanted. I still think the Knicks need to focus on the 4 spot to get a dominate defender that can flank Curry.

    Well put. Curry is a monster when the ball goes into him. He can score a number of ways. But the rest of his game needs serious work! He can't pass well, he doesn't rebound well and his defense is sub-par. But if I was the coach, I would run my offense thru him for the first half of each first quarter then open it up when a more athletic player comes in for him. Then I would finish the game with him getting some touches. Curry is a gifted scorer this can not be argued.

    As for all of them player you list for Indiana they will most likely play the 3 and Harrington can play the 4 with no problems. O'neal will be fine at the 5. The NBA is changing drastically and all of this FOOTBALL banging we have seen in the recent past is disappearing. The game is getting more fluid again and so teams are running more. Look at the Spurs they basically went with Duncan at the 5 in the playoffs. Once Shaq hangs them up, the league will really open up.

    I read the Hawks can't do anything right now cause they don't or cant take on contracts right now while the owners jockey for position. Golden State makes the most sense since they have a lot of young pieces and could entice the Hawks.

    That judgment has been lifted. Atlanta can do as they please aslong as none of the contract they take in exceed 3 years.

    Ah ha, i see you stuck with that bet by having jerome in your sig, havnt been on in a while been real busy, but here is my take on Harrington.

    1.He is a great player, dont get me wrong but his style would not fit with ny
    2.He isnt a good defender, somthing that we need in a starter, Q in the other hand is a good defender, and if he gets his offense back you will see this team improve ASAP
    3.He will most likly cost us alot, we would have to make a sign and trade with ATL and he is not playing for less then 10 mil a year, you can bet that. And you know our cap situation
    4.We have a logjam at sf right now, unless he played PF, wich he probably would, i dont see the sense in this, if he play pf he could work out here

    C-Curry/Frye
    Pf-Harrington/Lee
    Sf-Q/Balkman/Rose (jalen)
    Sg-Francis/Jc/Jalen
    Pg-Marbury/Francis/Nate


    If we could move francis to ATL in order to get Harrington and maybe an expiring deal, id be all for this, but if we just sign a player, thats one more spot isiah has to play
