    The injuries Frye has had have been freak injuries. U had that kid Barret roll over his knee, he got his tooth knocked out or sumthing like that and he got poked in the eye so what are yall talking about?? lol

    I would trade Craw and Nate for Lewis... BUT... all this Frye hate and Nate love doesn't make sense to me... Nate is an egomaniac who is more concerned with chest thumping, collar popping and taking bad shots than with playing defense, moving the ball around or winning... when Nate is on the floor... the flow of the game is disrupted and it's obvious IT does not approve of his improvisations...

    Channing had one bad season last year... but he is a loyal soldier who does what the coach asks of him to improve the team... Larry wanted him to bang, block shots and rebound... he tried and had a good rookie year until Marbury Crippled him... IT wanted him to spread the floor with his mid range J... thereby giving Curry more room to operate... and he did it... yeah... his defense was shaky... and he looked intimidated on the court... but that was only AFTER his JJ20/JJ13 started logging minutes ahead of him...

    remember... the knicks came back to life after the supsension when we had our nine man rotation... Frye was essential to our streak of tripple OT victories...

    i think IT realizes this and refuses to give him up in the deal... remember Nate played less as the season progressed too... and we have Collins as a bigger, more controlled and better defensive pg option...

    I agree but you shouldn't blame marbury for the downfall of Frye...with the emergence of Curry, Frye has no choice but to take back seat to Curry. This is why he's labled as a pure jump shooter since he cant post up while Curry clogs up the entire lane. This is Isiah's plan...I don't think marbury had anything to do with it. Even tho they would make a sick pick and role combo...

    You know, I kind of agree but I think if we use Crawford to trade for him, than we really are kind of making a lateral move as far as style goes. If the Knicks were to land Lewis, I think they should make him a 2 guard and start Balkman at the 3 spot. I've seen Lewis in the 2 spot and he causes match up nightmares! If the Knicks can pull off that deal for Lewis, they shouldn't stop there! I mean, Lewis would not put this team into the next level, they would still need to address the 4/5 spot. They need a banger! Everyone has Lee as a starter but I see him coming off the bench. I think that plays to his strength and keeps the bench strong as well. Anderson Varejao is a restricted free angency, I would offer him the mid and see if he bites. How about Mikki Moore for the Mid...

    I meant Marbury crippled him cuz i thought it was steph that ran into him last season... someone said it was someone else though...

    soooooo... Mikki Moore and Verajao are starters but not DLee??? it's this kind of move IT has made far too often that has us unable to attend playoff games in the garden (on the plus side, my college graduation was on the court, cuz the knicks weren't using it)... we're set at the 4... let's not get caught up in change for the sake of change...

    Y do ppl keep saying we need 2 address the 4 and 5 spots when we already have a lot of depth @ those positions, unless u plan on making trades. We already have Curry, Lee, Frye, Balkman, Morris, Rose and James.

    We do need a shot blocker but I think Frye would be the shot blocker we need if Isaiah would give him consistent minutes.

    Let's not crap on Channing after having a mediocore second season
    Exactly. Why would anyone think he is injury proned? He's not a Lamarcus Aldridge now...he be possibly everything we want in a PF...shotblocker with a great jumper and an average post game. Again most of you people expect too much out of our youngsters...they are still growing and we have yet to see them at there best...give them a lil time before you judge.

    people should remember that it took the mavs and bulls 4+ seasons to make the post seasons AFTER the rebuilding process began...

    we only need to limit our turnovers, get rashard lewis, and start lee as pf. That is the formula for a playoff spot. no team that leads the league in turnovers is gonna make the playoffs easily

    you forgot to mention that we also need to start our games with more energy... being down by 18 to start games is never fun...

    That is true to the max. Hopefully we get Ewing and he makes everyone more focused.

    It happends when you run an offense through Curry and the defense abuses the lack of presence in the paint on defense, *points the finger to Curry*.

    Honestly, back to Lewis....he's definately an upgrade. I just don't want the Knicks to stock up too much talent again. We need to establish a team and get rid of negative players like Crawford, Francis, Jefferies etc, before we add anymore talent. We have a good team, its just the negative players are holding us back.

    ^^^true that... but unless we get a reasonable deal (one that doesn't add to our cap past 09) then i'd pass unless that guy guarantees us a title...^^^
