    Nyk Logo Who would you keep on the roster?

    Ok guys, here's the question... if you could discard players you don't want (not for trades or to make space for a free-agent)... who would you keep as players you REALLY like for your team... whether a good role player, star, etc:


    Players you can't choose due to injury or waived (though still paying):
    1. H2O
    2. Shandan Anderson
    3. Jerome Williams

    Here's the 15-man team including Jeffries to choose from:
    1. Starbury
    2. Jalen Rose
    3. Steve Francis
    4. Mo Taylor
    5. Eddy Curry
    6. Q-Rich
    7. Crawford
    8. Malik
    9. Jerome James (need we say more)
    10. Frye
    11. Nate
    12. Balkman
    13. David Lee
    14. Mardy Collins
    15. Jared Jeffries

    Let's see your lists... obviously you'd have an incomplete team... but it'll be interesting to see who the real keepers are!

    Here's my keepers: (not in any order)
    1. David Lee
    2. Eddy Curry
    3. Channing Frye
    4. Balkman (sorry no room to explain)
    5. Jamal Crawford
    6. Jeffries

    Borderline for me is Q-Rich for his D (remember him on Lebron)

    My list includes:
    1.Starbury
    2.Steve Francis
    3.Eddy Curry
    4.Channing Frye
    5.Jamal Crawford
    6.David Lee
    7.Jared Jeffries
    8.Nate Robinson
    9.Balkman
    10.Mardy Collins
    11.Malik Rose

    Everyone else that I didn't name (Mo Taylor, J Rose, Q-Rich) are either old and can't help us or injury proned. We have scoring options, defense, athleticism, and post options on this roster with sparks off the bench.

    i'd like to keep the team young with a few veterans to lead the way like marbury, richardson, and and maybe jalen rose, but we all know its more than likely he'll leave this year. the knicks have made it clear that they are trying to ship out james, malik, and taylor while francis remains in limbo. (anyone notice that there is absolutly no talk about francis?) maurice taylor will be a f.a next year but i'd like him to stay in ny (of course for way less money) because well he is a decent foward with size and is a more than capable scorer. so my choice of players to be booted from ny are both roses, francis, and james, all extras we dont need

    I would keep:

    1.Marbury
    2.Francis
    3.Q-Rich
    4.Channning
    5.Curry
    6.Crawford
    7.Nate
    8.Jalen
    9.Lee
    10.Jeffies
    11.Mo Taylor
    12.Qyntel Woods

    I pick all these players because they can keep the Knicks in check. Even though some are old they still can get the job done. And you always need some young players for that new school skills

    i think qyntel woods deserves a spot on the roster and should be signed to the minimum for next year until he proves that hes a star, like the deshawn stevenson-wizards situation. last year he defintly proved he can play, and given such a short time to prove himself. the team is full of athletes who can play and our g/f position is really deep with a mix of different styled players. the knicks will be a team to watch next year. things have been said before, but i expect big things to happen....

    Solid start. QRich you have to give another chance to. There was too much stuff going on for him last year. Where's the love for NateR? And maybe Isiah can reach Marbury, no one else has, but Stephon obviously has a problem with white coaches (something no one else is honest enough to admit).

    And, surprising everyone (I am sure) I would give Jerome James a chance to prove that he can get in shape. If necessary, I would hire him a personal trainer with a taser (although I am sure someone would whine about that idea).

    Let's please not have the race card...him being white has nothing to do with the issue. LB is old school....Starbury is new school...they clashed in ethics and how the game is played. Neither is wrong or right it's just that they clashed because one is fire and the other is ice. Just as LB clashed with Nate Rob, JC, and Ariza. But if you bring up the race issue then it could also go the other way round with LB having problems with established guards in the NBA such as Billups, AI, and starbury (two well established guards in the game). I'm being nice and not including steve francis. It's just the matter of basketball ethics...not being black or white. Don't do that to yourself...don't bring up the race card...

    Yeah lets please leave race out of this discussion. Especially when it is a non entity in this discussion. Marbury just has a problem playing for ANY coach that doesnt want him to be Starbury. Simple as that.

    BACK ON TOPIC..
    I'd keep
    1. Eddy Curry
    2. Channing Frye
    3. David Lee
    4. Jared Jeffries
    5. Renaldo Balkman
    6. Jamal Crawford
    7. Stephon Marbury

    Nate and Q are borderline for me. I like them both but Nate especially could be a kicker in a good deal. Jerome James, Malik Rose, Maurice Taylor, Jalen Rose, Mardy Collins (also a kicker) are expandable to me.

    In this order:

    Jamal Crawford (knicks most explosive player)
    Channing Frye (ability to spread the floor and shoot)
    Eddie Curry (inside demon in the right system)
    Stephon Marbury (will mature eventually/ chip on shoulder)
    Jalen Rose (expiring contract)
    Maurice Taylor (expiring contract)
    Quentin Richardson (if back is healthy excellent shooter and defender)
    Jared Jefferies (can't trade him anyway but very effective player)
    Jerome James (like it or not need insurance for Curry)
    Nate Robinson ( to spell Marbury and for defense will get better)
    Both Rookies ( for depth and defense )

    I'm definitely feeling Isiah's idea of having a lineup composed of:

    PG- Stephon Marbury
    SG- Steve Francis
    SF- Jared Jeffries
    PF- Channing Frye
    C- Eddy Curry

    This young athletic lineup can destroy most eastern conference teams with it's size and most western conference teams with it's athleticism. Jared Jeffries is another guy that can help steve francis on bigger guards on the helpside double or an opportunity for a helpside block. This lineup is a potent, athletic lineup and in my opinion it's one of the top 5 starting 5 in the eastern conference. I smell playoffs already...
