    Default trade curry yes/no

    and for who if yes

    I really want to know if any wants to trade curry, as he seems to have such a large fan base on this blog.

    Ive been sayng all along I want to trade him, and maybe it proved to you tonight that we can win with out him, against a good opposition team as well.

    I really think that when curry is on, not much will happen with him than him scoring in the paint. He wont dish the block out, and on defence or shall we say lack of defence i dont see him do alot which is a big problem.

    I don't know who I would trade curry for, i know who I want but I just dont think orlando will give Dhoward for him, and with the curry trade i beleive we could get rid of francis, but orlando would definetely say no if this were the case.

    I think a trade for okafor or even jefferson (look at his numbers before you shut me down). What do u think.

    Way to early to talk about trading Curry. Despite this string of bad games, this is Curry's best season to date as a Knick. Some may say that's not saying much but it does show improvement. Knicks guards are unreliable and they always have been. I like Marbury. I think he's underrated and bashed by the media for years but I don't want him is a #1 scoring option. This means we need Curry to be the first option.

    i know ive seen a few people suggest trading curry. i dont kno how u ccan consider that with the improvement he's shown this season. dont get me wrong the guy has flaws just like dam near everyone else on this team. we all know his defense is weak, we all know he has trouble passing out of a double team. Mark Aguirre is working on curry and in time he will pick up those pieces his game is missing. i dunno how u could wanna trade our most improved player other then lee. unless it involved bringin in a kg.. that i might not be able to turn down

    For the sake of argument and discussion, say you do trade Curry. Who do you bring in that's better? Eddy Curry averages 3.5 T.O. (Turnovers a Game). Okay, so how many other 24 Yr. Olds does anyone one else on this site know who have been asked to lead The Knicks franchise? How many of those guys have upped the scoring by 6 points per game (PPG)? Or upped their rebounding by 2 (RPG)? Eddy Curry has so far this year started to take the challenge of leading this Knicks team. He has a great support group in Isiah Thomas, Mark Aguirre, and Herb Williams. I think trading him would be foolish, but watch this, and decide for yourself.

    I think we need to wait with a trade involving Eddy Curry. Because he isn't at his best without Jamal Crawford. But if he struggles when Crawford returns I would trade Curry for Okur.

    No, Curry definitely should not and will not be traded. He's the future of this team, and he will become a franchise player. He's just been having some bad games because it's hard for him without Crawford playing with him. I really believe in Eddy Curry, and I'm sick and tired of all the bashing and dissing he gets. Give him a break, he's young, and hasn't reached his prime yet. Eddy reminds me of the smart kid in school that got failing grades because he just never did his homework. That's what I see in Eddy Curry. The talent is there, the potential is there, and Isiah sees that, Curry's teammates see it also, it's just that Eddy himself doesn't see it yet perhaps, and therefore isn't fully applying himself. It's probably because he's young. As long as Eddy is guided in the right direction and coached the right way, he will eventually improve other aspects of his game besides scoring in the post. Curry will be a Knick for a long time.

    okur doesnt demand a double team nearly as much as curry does. once eddy figures out how to pass out of the double team, maybe make sum free throws, and become a dominant presence on the defensive end were lookin @ the most talented big man in the east. shaq is 35 n gettin older. curry is 24 n getting better. give it some dam time

    Again...the simple minded hypocritical knick fan who wants to put the guy in the hall of fame in his productive months and trade when he's doing bad and we're talking about a span of 1 year...I don't get it. Oh yea...I'm saying no...By the way that interview with John Thompson proved the mindset of Eddy Curry. Big ups to the great John Thompson...one of the greatest coaches of all-time

    Mehmet Okur averages the same number of RPG as Eddy Curry. Here are their stats side by side:

    Eddy Curry Mehmet Okur
    PPG 19.2 PPG 18.4
    RPG 7.1 RPG 7.4
    APG .9 APG 2.1
    SPG .43 SPG .50
    BPG .54 BPG .47
    FG% .579 FG% .464
    FT% .604 FT% .786
    3P% .000 3P% .391
    MPG 35.1 MPG 33.9

    So nyKnicks126 no Okur isn't better than Curry. Stats don't lie. Plus, Curry is 4 Years younger. If Curry had a PF like Carlos Boozer he have elevated stats too. All Star caliber teammates have a tendancy to make the game easier. Plus a true center isn't supposed to be on the perimeter chucking up 3's. That's what your 1,2, and 3 (PG, SG, and SF) positions on a team are for.

    If the right offer came along, I would consider trading Curry.

    Curry is a great talent, no question. However, we shouldn't annoint him the best center in east, not when Dwight Howard and Al Jefferson are on his heels. Bear in mind as well that if an eastern conference team lands Greg Oden, he may very well leap frog Curry as the best center in the east.
    Just something to think about.
