I know they are working a deal for ron artest, ever hear of the team with to many shooters? Chemistry problem? I like rons defense and his hustle, What he brings to the table is much needed on this knick teams. Unfortunately, I'm one of those guys who's tired of the players who have turned the sports section to the most crime filled section of the papers. I can't tell where the regular news stops and the sports begin. There is more violence/crime/propaganda and hold outs. Players saying dumb things. Ron, hasn't committed a crime, but he's not all there and no angel either. Michael Vick got in trouble for maintaining contact with his old crew, now we bring Artest home, where his old crew is all around. Basketball wise, good move, but long term, think disaster. I think there will be huge problem somewhere somehow with this player. He seems like he'd be right there with vick at the next dog fight and you know he'll be in the NY media, everyday saying something or doing something, it won't all be bad, but some will. Who's to say ron artest doesn't get suspended/arrested. I can see him trying to keep it real, hanging in old spots, maybe getting robbed, then carrying a gun and getting arrested. I see him as a ton of talent, lot of off the court headaches. We are the NY Knicks are we that desperate to win? I'd rather win with class. plus I don't think Artest will be in league that long. I see suspensions and problems.
I'd rather have Bryant, who i am not a fan of, i think he's to, selfish, although he took huge strides this past year, in trying to involve his teamates. I say we hold out for kobe. But he is also very talented.
