30 days away... you are probably asking yourself can this dude count right? or bah humbug i hate christmas! or hey, im jewish, this guy sucks. butttt hear me out.
DECEMBER 15th is 10 days before the actual day of christmas. BUT christmas will come early for us knicks fan. so lets all hope and pray isiah stays in office until then.. after that he can get tossed for all i care.
December 15th is the day all newly signed acquistions can be traded. so that means at that point everyone is available. and essentially that means the market is open and i bet you anything... that is the day Ron Artest comes home to the New York Knicks.
Love Ron or hate him, he is what this team needs. A tough, defensively minded, perimeter defending SOB. Not sure if Isiah will give in on his NO LEE or BALKMAN stand but it will get done. i feel it. we need it. id like marbury to come around and be here for that day but i have a feeling the deal will involve him. in fact i have a feeling itll be a large deal that also gets us Mike Bibby.
Watkins (shotblocker from SU) Thomas, Abdur-Rahim, Bibby and Artest for Stephon Marbury, Malik Rose, Fred Jones, David Lee & probably Wilson Chandler and Mardy Collins.
This works for both teams in many ways.
1. Salary wise.
Bibby, Artest come off in two years. Abdur-Rahim/Thomas in 3.
Marbury and Rose come off in 2. and Jones in 1.
were already capped out so who cares!
2. Talent wise.
They get a high talented pg so do we. and if it doesnt work buyouts are a possibility. They also get two young guys they covet. we get two seasoned vets we covet.
3. Problem solver.
They want to get young and want to get rid of Artest/Bibby/Miller. we want to get rid of Marbury and win now. hence the trade.
it works for both of us. and thats always the best scenario for a GM. a win/win.
and id resign Jared Jordan to fill in the spots.
thats my christmas wish. what is yours? and make them reasonable and realistic, no sarcastic (id trade the whole team garbage) THANKS!!!!
