One thing people must remember: we, as fans, are not privy to the inner workings of the organizations we root for. We do not know the character of the players or even the management involved. All we can do is speculate. The media, though a little more in the know, are also mainly out of the loop. But because they are the media, we tend to listen more to them. We think they may know more than they actually do.
The point made about the NY fans by ‘The 1 and Only’ is dead-on. The fans are always all hot for the moves until they don’t pan out right away. Fans tend not to be farsighted when it comes to the trades made by their teams. It’s a little less true when it comes to draft picks, but not much.
To say that a man who has played in the NBA at a high level and built a decent Indiana team does not know what he is doing is ridiculous!! I wonder if ‘os2wiz’ thinks he (or she) is more knowledgeable than a Hall of Fame NBA champion. Call me crazy, but I trust Isiah a little more than ‘os2wiz’!
‘Hometheaterguy’, do you really believe Larry Frontrunner got the most out of the talent he had last year? Do you honestly think the current Knick roster is only worth 23 wins? Even you say yourself that the East is weaker, so that in itself means more wins. The reasons stated by ‘The 1 and Only’ are extremely valid, and you know it.
Marbury and Francis have been losing, I’m sure they’ll be able to play together. They won’t have to do it as a tandem all year, but in spurts, it should be fun!
The Eddy Curry trade was a good trade. It looked like a bad trade because of 1 reason: Eddy Curry! He plays like he’s capable, and that trade is a steal for NY!!
