    Default Isiah gets fired! , you are now Preisdent of the New York Knicks

    Where would you start?


    Firstly, I would get signed to the physical trainer position and GM. I'll make Allan Houston the president and Mark Jackson the head coach. Gus Johnson and Clyde Frazier will be the full time announcers. We'll get new uniforms, a graffit design representing the Hip Hop culture created in NYC...the default colors will be orange, black blue and white.

    Following trades:

    Sonics trade
    Delonte West
    Johan Petro
    Wally Z
    Kurt Thomas
    1st round pick

    Knicks trade
    Eddy Curry
    Jamal Crawford



    Sonics
    Watson/Ridnour
    Crawford/Wilkins
    Durant/Green/Jefferies
    Wilcox/Colison
    Curry/Swift/Sene

    Why for us?
    Expiring contract and an enforcer in Kurt Thomas. Wally has 1 year left in his contract; Delonte West is a defensive specialist at the PG position is only 23 years old. Petro is another defensive player with a lot of agility and defensive skills. We replace Crawford's erratic shooter for a more high percentage 3point specialist in Wally. Wally and Kurt won't be here in the long term, but can teach and help develop the skills of the younger guys. Petro and Delonte will be here for the long term cause of their defensive ability. We also drop two cancerous losers in Crawford and Curry who only weaken our defense, assist/turnovers, and frequent isolation on offense.


    Kings trade
    Artest
    Garcia
    Douby

    Knicks trade
    Richardson
    Robinson
    Chandler


    Kings

    PG - Bibby/Robinson
    SG - Martin/Salmons
    SF - Richardson/Chandler
    PF - SAR/Thomas
    C - Miller/Spencer H.

    Why for Knicks?
    Get the best two way player in the league in Artest; so all the trade rumors of being traded can finally be put to rest. Garcia is an excellent defender who can play and guard 3 positions. Douby is a local guy who can shoot the ball and score off the bench like Eddie House. We give up Chandler and Robinson to equal the trade value and because of their potential.


    NY Knicks
    Marbury/West/Douby
    Collins/Garcia/Jones
    Artest/Balkman/Wally Z
    Randolph/Lee
    Petro/Kurt Thomas


    The main focus on offense will be Randolph, dropping Crawford and Curry will give Randolph more touches where he can average 25+ a game. Marbury, Curry and Artest can pass well also, so Randolph's effieciency should increase.

    The main guys off the bench will be West(PG/SG, Lee(PF/C) Balkman (SF) and Garcia(G/F).

    There will be an emphasis on defense, a real emphasis since we'll have the players who have the tools to defense. A great balance, Marbury, Artest and Randolph are 20+ ppg players, Collins averages 15/5/5 as a starter...Petro will be used like how Dallas uses Diop...18 minutes per game, just for defensives purposes. Meaning Randolph will get some minutes at the C position.

    Our weakness will be a shot blocker, but that is negated with skilled post defenders like Petro and Kurt Thomas.

    Financially we'll look good. Marbury, Artest, Wally, Thomas all would expire soon, and Randolph (our primary premiere guy) will be one of the few guys signed to a 3yr+ deal. A lot of flexibility if you ask me.

    Not expecting a championship, but its a realistic way of changing things, and heading in a positive direction. Once we get under the cap we'll get key free agents that can compliment Randolph; similar to how Phoneix got Nash in the free agency to compliment Marion and Amare.


    Peace, be creative and realistic.

    Apparently Okefor didn't sign his contract extension for 12 mil per. Maybe he doesnt want to resign with Charlotte as it's his last year of his contract

    Just to be sure tho....

    I woud gladly give up Curry, Nate, and either lee and balkman for this deal

    I really hate to be so obnoxious, but you really have to be an idiot to think getting Artest would be a good idea in light of this Marbury fiasco.

    This is exactly the kind of thing you are asking for when you get classless players, players with mental problems, players with a hoodlum mentality etc.... You can't win with idiots like these being a key part of the team. They are losers. That's why smart teams are constantly trading them even though they are talented athletes.

    Again, I really do apologize for the tone because I respect you and your opinion, but we have to get over this Artest BULL****. That's the fast track to disaster.

    Default Tough spot

    It's a tough job, IT hasn't made it any easier. I think you can say, the marbury years are a bust. He went from ace basket maker to basket case! He's a disaster. We have to move on. I like marbury, but he just isn't the same anymore, he's less productive and more insane. Trade marbury? his contracta and antics make it near impossible. Buy him out? at 21mill each year, thats a lot of cash. Can we trade him to italy?

    I'd trade Steph to Seattle for a bag of balls so he can finish his sorry-ass career in Oklahoma City.

    Everyone is an idiot to you huh? Takes one to know one.

    Artest would answer all our problems, **** character problems...you wouldn't want Rasheed Wallace on the Knicks? Look at what he did for Detroit. Artest on the Pacers were one of the best teams in the East.

    You don't know anything about class.

    You can't win with Curry and Crawford, its evident. Have these guys ever played on a .500 basketball team? Except for Curry's last year in Chicago, when most of the credit goes to the other stars in Chicago. Curry and Crawford are well defined losers cause they're don't change their style.

    Marbury changed his style.

    He was a 20 and 8 guy, dominated the ball and created everything.

    Now Marbury lets his teammates create, he's more unselfish and gave up his numbers for the productivity of Crawful and Chubby. Marbury never dominates the ball; he's letting Curry develop and improve. Marbury was giving into Isiah's plan of "Feed Curry". Too bad it lead to a lot of losses.


    Eat this Marbury quote bitch;

    "When you’re happy and your smiling, haters are frowning. When you have a clear conscious and your mind is free, others are confused. When you can see where you’re going and no longer living in the dark, others are blinded by your light."
