    Default How about Darko???

    with lewis going to the magic, they need to release the rights to darko....while hes not going to avg 20 points hes a solid interior defender....which we need desperately.....what do you guys think?

    not the greatest signing to be made, but an affordable one, and something that could def help inside the paint.

    Darko would of been a great compliment Curry to play next to Curry. Blocks shots, can defend outside the paint, can pass, nice fundamentals. His only weakness is he's a *****. He has the ability to play really rugged. Young kid too.


    But we have Randolph, so its too late.

    yeah but there's only 96 minutes available at PF and C... splitting that between 3 guys (Lee, Randolph, Curry) is hard enough without penciling in Darko... metro's right... with the presence of Randolph... this is unrealistic...

    **** Randolph!!(be forewarned this is how I will start off most of my post from now on, i'm a hater on randolph like metro hates on curry lol) anyhow, Darko, for whatever reason, is coveted by other teams who would spend more than the knicks can offer at this time. Plus something tells me that dude would crack in NYC. The skills he has however is exactly what the Knicks need

    if randolph ends up getting traded then darko would be the perfect compliment at pf with lee to play with curry and it would be a great signing. well see what happens

    i don't think randolph is going anywhere... if we bring in darko he takes minutes away from lee and morris... he doesn't fit our team anymore...

    "**** the Zach Randolph Trade"

    I tend to disagree. I think he will and should be traded for someone who is as talented and can fit a NEED on the knicks ..

    Agreed to the ****ing max. We don't need Randolph on this team. We have rebounding with Lee and Balkman. We have big man scoring with Curry(Even though Randolph would be a better option).

    Randolph is a great piece though. Only 25 years old. 23 and 10 player. We could definately get an all star caliber player in return. Hopefully its at SG, because Crawford is garbage. I'm happy at PG, and PF with Marbury and Lee. I have major confidence in Balkman as the SF of the future. I'm okay with Curry, he better show improves on offensive and defensive awareness. I guess at SG, you can say Mardy Collins when he develops a consistant jumper.

    and **** DARKO. He thinks he should be a first option. Why do you think his agent isn't letting Darko re-sign with Orlando right away? Darko is beyond talented, one of the most talented big man in the NBA. But he doesn't have that mean streak to average 10 rebounds a game. He's a great defender and skilled offensive player. He needs to practice more, he has the skills, but not the confidence. I really question Darko. But like I said before, he would be the perfect compliment to Curry; for his defense and fundamentals to hide Eddy's flaws.

    Darko would be a good compliment to curry as well, but i dont think hes a starter. atleast not a consistant one. sometimes he would be overmatched and pushed around, sometimes he comes out blocking and focused. Its more his desire and energy, hes not a high energy guy.
    Id rather let Lee develop, lee is decent defender, maybe he'll improve this year.

    can't comment on fred jones, or dick, but ain't no one going to take burger-king james, or jefferies or q (with his uninsurable back) off our hands...

    You guys are fooling your selves if you think Lee is better than Randolph. We've got him, get over it, he aint going no where unless it's for Garnett, which wont happen.
