i don't know about that.
I like Lee but we already have Zach here. Know one can honestly say that Lee will ever be better than Zach or even as good as Zach...With artest we finally get a bonafide small forward who can play DEFENSE and shoot form the outside. Enough with all these young players. Two, we get rid of Q who I was a fan of but it's clear that his back is gone...He should just retire! This will only get us to the playoffs though. We'll still get bounced in the first round. In the off-season we need to focus on getting rid of Curry or Zach to get a shot blocker. Preferrably a Curry for Tyson Chandler deal. Once we do that we should be ready to compete! And we should pick up Hasheem Thabeet C from I believe its UConn. He's a 7'2" and a menace to lay-ups and drives. I'd like to see:

and Jerome James and Jared Jefferies at the end of the bench!

probably not, tyson chandler isnt going anywhere
There's nothing that Lee can do or bring that Zach and Artest won't. We aren't winning with him and his defense is suspect. He doest rebound but he can't block a shot. No one on this team can. And we need to legitimize the small forward position. We already have an above average PF. With Zach's numbers he could've possibly made the all-star team if the Knicks won some more games and weren't such a joke.
'Dr' Thomas has found the 'black-hole', for the meager amount of $40m..
while i don't think "Dr" Thomas will be coach of the year, i do smell a nobel prize in his future... way to go "Dr".....
You got the right idea with the Curry for Chandler trade but New Orleans isnt this dumb, only you and Isiah are.
I dunno why Balkman doesn't get a chance to play. In my view he has much more of an upside then Lee because he can play d.
I think David Lee, Renaldo Balkman,and Quentin Richardson for Artest is a great trade. It will shorten the Knicks Roster, which will allow for free agent signings in the off season. Also, it will help our salary cap situation, because Artest doesn't even make that much compared to a lot of the other superstars in the league. However, if the Knicks are serious about growing as a team, they MUST trade Eddy Curry. Curry's terrible defense will always hinder the Knicks from winning games.
Lee is definitely a keeper, but unless he develops a jumpshot, he will forever be a great bench/role player. That is the only reason why Randolph is a starter and Lee is not. I'm not a fan of Z-Bo, but I think he could be a good starter if he is surrounded by good defensive players and 3-point shooters (hmmm, sounds like Artest). Oh, and teach him how to PASS THE DAMN BALL!!!
I would love for Chandler or Okafor to replace Curry and play alongside Randolph, but there is no way anyone is dumb enough to take a lazy, no-defense playin', fat piece o' **** like Curry for hustle players like Chandler and Okafor. If we want to get rid of Curry, it will have to be for a team that already plays great defense and desperately needs a offensive-post presence (Chicago??).With that in mind, I wouldn't want Ben Wallace here either. I think the best option is to trade Curry for an expiring contract and 2nd round pick (Minnesota for Theo Ratliff is the best option I can think of).
No disrespect but Isiah is not going trade Lee,Balkman, and Q for Artest. Especially Lee and Balkman, they are the energizer on the team. Whne they are on the court, the Knicks get runs. And come Artest?!?! please. Artest has a big ego, he ain't no way thinking of going to the Knicks.(A team that can't even win with him on the inactivem list) That's a BIG Hell No.
