    Default Isiah Says Knicks Will Be Inactive Around Trade Deadline

    Isiah Says Knicks Will Be Inactive Around Trade Deadline
    January 2, 2008 - 6:17 am
    New York Daily News -
    There are said to be several Knicks who wouldn't mind a change of scenery, including Stephon Marbury, David Lee, Malik Rose and Eddy Curry. The Kings are reportedly considering deals for Mike Bibby and Ron Artest, who has said he would like to return home and play with the Knicks.

    Tuesday, Thomas ruled out making a deal between now and the February deadline. Of course, Thomas has made a habit of denying working on moves right up until he makes them.

    "I really don't foresee that," he said. "I don't see us being active around the trade deadline. This is the time when you're down and you can make mistakes that can cost you years. And everything that you've worked for the last three, four years that can set you back another three years. We've got a young group, we've got good players, and we've got good talent. We've just got to get them to play together."


    I give up.
    Bye.

    what he should have said is that he fuk'd up, and that no one wants any of his ****ty players, with their bloated contracts...

    as i said previously (and i wish i was wrong).. the team we see , is the team we will have for the forseeable future...

    I think that not making any trades is the right thing to do. I think what the Knicks should do is wait till everyone's contract expires and don't re-sign them.We have too many players with high contracts, so anyone with a trade offer will just make an offer to trick the knicks. for ex: Trevor Ariza for steve fancis and channing frye for Zach Randolph.Also, I don't think Isiah Thomas should be fired. Whoever comes in for Isiah will have to adjust to the mess the Knicks has become.

    Jan 2 Artest (elbow) said he would approve a deal to New York and boasts that he could turn things around for the Knicks, the New York Post reports.

    Recommendation: The Knicks pursued Artest in the offseason and could certainly use someone to play some defense. "Anywhere I go, I can turn things around, given the opportunity," Artest said. "I definitely would not be opposed to it if that is my calling. I would not be opposed if something would happen [with the Knicks]. But I just want to win a championship.

    See the Kings actually are shipping them two around... Now! Thats crazy... And Isiah isn't pullin the trigger. Isiah is a stupid person. Thats it. I don't care if Ron is injuried and so is Bibby. Bibby will be back sooner or later. At least he actually has a reason not playin.

    I remember when VC was beening shipped around... Knicks were the TOP team. Tim Thomas and a Scrub for VC!!!!!! Isiah said no... Tim is a great starter for the team..... Wow that went far...

    Im not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, Isiah has a history of givin away too much in trades. Im just scared that hes gonna give away more draft picks. What the F*ck are we the fans supposed to do, root for or against this team?

    If we can get him without parting with Lee and Nate do it!, and especialy if we can lose one or two of the many bloated contracts on top of it... come on he's got to do it! Maby it just hasn't happened yet because Sacremento wants to much? Also their demands will lessen the closer to all-star break we get and if they don't become more flexable with their trade demands their going to walk away empty handed this summer when Artest leaves anyway!

    I dont know if this is a good thing or bad thing either. We are a horrible team now, and I'm never sold on tanking for a lottery pick.

    What pisses me off is quotes like this that Thomas makes that give the impression he knows what he is doing. I wouldn't hire him to run my office's mailroom

    Ron Artest was the "MAN" for the "Curry Factor", not Zach Randolph.
    C-Curry
    PF-Lee
    SF-Artest
    Ron Artest is a court LEADER in practice and in a game.

    This season "Curry Factor" is all Isiah Thomas fault for not Starting David Lee alongside of Curry at the start of the 2007-8 season, plus not demanding that Curry, Zach, Lee, James, and Malik Rose all participate in Mark Aquire Bigman Camp in July & August.

    There was no reason why Zach, Balkman, Collins, and Nate could'nt have been the Fire-Power off the Bench at the start of this season to give this Knick-Team a strong depth chart.
    David Lee was supposed to be assigned to helping improve Eddy Curry Team-Play on both sides of the court at the start of this 2007-8 season.

    Starting Players because of their High Contract is something all G.M's. would like to do, but a Wise Coach looks for the best co-existing players to START & FINISH the game for success.

    I think artest could really turn things around for us. So long as he stays outa trouble off the court!!!
    Hes a strong character on the court and could be the floor general we so desperatly need!!!
    As a new yorker i think artest would be fully focused on winning and not stabbin people! although isiah needs it!

    i'd have to go with a no for the tru warrior at this point.

    The way this season has gone, our roster is about as toxic as Chernobyl. The last thing this team needs is another malcontent.

    I suggest all you guys read Bill Simmons article on espn about chemistry and how it works for the NBA like in no other sport.

    Zeke, Steph, Q, Zach, Nate.... thats enough ego to fill up the Garden. Frankly, I'm sick of all the drama. These guys all act like overpaid employees that have no relationship to eachother outside the 48 mins they play on tv.

    Ron is a good player, but this is one of those situations where there is too much gun powder in a keg for a wild match like him
