I rather have a crazy distruptive Artest for 82 games than Jamal chucking up asinine shots all season.
Y trade Frye 4 Lewis when there's a possiblity we can try and get Garnett, Artest and there's a [U]slight[U] chance we could get Kobe. We should just wait it out 4 a lil bit 2 see what we can do.
But with all that being said, I'd trade him in a second for Kevin Garnett
DAL, POR, LAL, MIA, NJ, CHA, SEA, IND, SAC
Possible Active teams
NY, MIN (they keep denying the Garnet rumors)
if IT waits too long... he might lose out on Lewis if someone else offers a more attractive package...
"IF" the Knicks want a decent WINNING 2007-8 Season than Ron Artest is the main player to go after at the start of the offseason. If giving up the "ONLY" SG on the Knicks (Crawford) to get Ron Artest than so be it. It's just that the Knicks have to search hard in the FA market this offseason for a decent 24 MPG SG.
Ron Artest weakness is at the SG-position (it was proven on the Kings because the Kings should have resigned SG-Wells.). Ron Artest strong Values for this Knick team will be at the Point-Foward and the SF/PF-position alongside the quick hustling of C/PF/SF-David Lee and PF/SF-Balkman.
Ron Artest is the teammate that will insist that Channing Frye play within the paint on bothsides of the court alongside of him which Coach Isiah would do not to have a N.Y. Media outburst from Ron Artest.
The Sacremento Kings are in dire need of a SG to go along with PG-"Henry" Bibby in the backcourt. So Crawford would be a player that they can not refuse. Although, I feel that Q.Richardson would be the best trade for Ron Artest so the Knicks playingtime at the SF-position be left to just Ron Artest, Balkman, and Lee. But Q.Rich has become a 40 game season player with his so-call back injury. Plus Q.Rich can not play the SG-position with any of the Knicks PG.
The Knicks POOR perfomance this season was all on Isiah Thomas "SAVE-FACE" coaching style for contract players Marbury, Francis, Q.Rich, Jefferies, and Curry, getting big minutes of playingtime (without a system that coincide with each of their talents)...
The best possible thing that can happend is IF the Knicks obtain both Ray Allen and Ron Artest. I rather pursue Allen over Lewis, where Allen can be an excellent primary scorer. I would definately give up Curry for Allen and a draft pick, Allen is a superior all around scorer. with a 1-2-3-4 of Marbury Allen Artest and Lee, it doesnt matter who you got at C.
^ Isiahsexuals, don't get tight cause I just traded away your two untouchable God's in Crawford and Curry. But Crawford and Curry are C+ players. Allen is an A player, Robinson is barely a C, and Petro is a young center with potential as well who's a C player. Its a fair deal for both teams.
I'm not saying its possible, but its like I would like to see be offered by Isiah. We're not even a .500 team, so theres no problem trading 3-5 guys from this team this off season. Isiah Thomas has an ego and won't give up Curry or Crawford till he's dead. So yes, you can deal these deals unrealstic. Regardless, they're great deals.
Kiyaman, I agree with you where Isiah has been over playing Curry to make the Curry deal look favorable to him. Thats all Isiah seems to care about this point. Even in interviews, he feels its the greatest thing to ever happend to this Franchise that Chicago got the 9 pick. He dodged every other issue we're facing as a team, and just focused on a Curry deal that got us no playoffs.
Sacramento already got Martin at SG.

I love Ron's game and he's a player I think that will make us a better team, but I don't think we should be so quick to give up Channing, I think that he's the type of player that will work hard every off season until he's a All Star.
I agree completely...except Yao and Curry will be the premiere Centers of this league and I can't say that Curry will be better than Yao but he will be up there with him if not above him. Time will tell because again...he's a young post player that hasn't tapped into half of his potential yet...
Curry will not be better than Yao. Yao (b4 he had that knee injury) looked like he was the best C in the NBA.
The Yao statement is true, but at the same time Curry is getting better as well. I would say that Yao is the only player i mentioned that would have better numbers than Curry and even if then, not by much...
