Y do the Knicks want 1of the most overrated players in the NBA??? He's lost a step (or 2) and he wants like 18mil per year. Are you F**king kidding me?? i'd be hesitant 2 give him 8mill. Dude plays no defense and in a year or 2 he'll just be a jump shooter. If Isaiah makes this happen to the Knicks 4 the next 5yrs.
I agree Vince Carter is exactly what we don't need, another player who needs the ball to make an impact on the game, a older player with a new contract, and a player who can at times be a disturbance to his team. I agree that while he is a better player that Balkman, Balkman just brings it every single night on the court,and the same can't be said for Vince. I think aside from the highlights, we can get everything we would get from Vince out of Crawford. I've defended every trade and aquisition that my man Isiah has made ( except Jerome James, and I still want to give Jared one more season before judging) but I will change my name to "BACK 2 Detroit 11" if this trade goes down....seriously!
OK GUYS, you really need to focus on the fact that dude is playing for the NETS and realize he JUST turned 30. only three years older than Craw, and again like i've said other times, I love Craw, but come on, Craw is a better player than VC?!?!?! How exactly do you come to that conclusion? Mind you, Vince is the same age as KG. would you guys be saying the same thing about KG coming? C'mon be objective, The guy along with Curry and Marbury would be great... AND I believe with a little coaxing from Isiah to Phil Knight, we could possibly get Vince over here with the Mid-Level Exception... HMM think about it
as for KG... the guys puts it out there EVERY night... win or lose... he has the heart of a lion and is loyal to his team and franchise... vince is neither...
Crawford would be waaaaaaay better than Vince, if he was consistent.
Carter's got some skills offensively, but rebounds, plays very solid defense, and goes out and plays his ass off every night (two things VC knows nothing about). Do you reallly want a player who quits on his team? especially a "Superstar" aren't they supposed to dictate whether you ahve a good team or not.
as far as jamal crawford vs. viet cong, at this point in their careers you'd be crazy not ot go with JC. he's got 5 more years of averaging 15-20. VC has 1 or 2 of averaging 20, then it's going to be over like rony seikaly on the nets. if you really wanna buy out his contract in a year and half, then yeah let's get this guy.
i've been a knicks fan since i was 10, but if they get vince carter i really am going to have to stop rooting for this team. there's a reason only 8 head coaches have chips in the last 25 years. winning is a product of a winning attitude and mindset. VC couldn't be more opposite of these things. He's just a pair of strong legs and long arms.
Not a bad starting 5!
I read that Carter wants 60 million for a three year deal. Are we going to pay this guy 20 mill a year now? He's not that good! Carter is the most inconsistent all-star in the league. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
The Knicks should go after Jermaine O'Neal, Pau Gasol or Kevin Garnett. If they can't get any of the above then we should keep virtually the same line up. Move Francis to Houston or Cleavland if possible. Francis is tradable. He's only got two more years on his contracts. If necessary we should bench him and trade his expiring contract the year after next.
