    Default Chris Kaman

    ...Might be the ugliest player to ever play in the NBA. But MAN this guy is having a great season. I wouldn't mind trading EC for him...
    3 Blocks a game. 14 boards. 18 points. Those are crazy stats. Might get turnovers. but he is a good player.. Defensive, and a bit offensive.
    You guys got any offers?

    Other then EC for Kaman straight up, I dont have any offers but I would make the trade, Kaman is clearly the better of the 2. He is one of the ugliest players but his teammated is even uglier.

    Top 5 ugliest players (no homo)

    1. Cam Cassell
    2. Rajon Rondo
    3. Chris Kaman
    4. Brian Scalabrine
    5. Eddy Curry/Zach Randolph

    Brain Skinner, Matt Bonner, Brad Miller should be up there too. among with one time player Greg Ostertag. and.... Greg Oden. The kid looks like he is 40.

    Kaman, would bring DEFENSE to the team. He is also a young player too. Then Z Bo, and Kaman might be able to fit better then the EC and Z bo project.. which is like the Starbury, and Francis project... two offensive abilities on this squad dont work.. Thats why Z bo would carry the offense.. to a point, and Kaman got the D.

    Kaman is exactly what this team is looking or-DEFENSIVE GAME OVER OFENSIVE GAME. Like you said defensive player with a bit of offense. We have plenty of scorers. the mans averagin 14 rpg-thats crazy-and hes a TEAM PLAYER. But as long Isiah's here, so is Curry, and everybody else.

    I think they should make the trade, but I don't see why the Clippers would trade Kaman.Who would they get in return? Quentin Richardson, who led one of the worst Clipper teams in Clippers history?

    And you got the nerve, and the time to respond to threads like this! Congratulations!

    Kaman is Kaman, a defensive player who can be a good addition to this struggling Knicks team.

    In Feb of 2007 I think the Clippers would have made the trade for Curry (maybe) but now why would anyone trade any value for him. The only thing Curry has going for him right now is the fact that he is still very young, 6' 11" and 290 pounds. He also has a little bit of a smoke screen to stand behind; he could potentially blame his numbers on Isiah's lack of ability to build and run a NBA franchise. He did have impressive numbers in Chicago and decent numbers before this season.... Kaman on the other hand is looking like he is on the upside now. Then again the Clippers aren't doing much better than the Knicks and some players have a tendency to be good on bad teams. Still, if you are the GM of the Clippers and Isiah calls you to see if you would make a player for player trade (Curry for Kaman)... What would be the reasoning for him to make that trade??? Right now all things being equal; on paper Kaman is so much more valuable than Curry. In order to make that trade, I'm sorry to say that the Knicks would have to sweeten the pot.

    Its too bad Isiah didnt have a brother who was the gm of the clippers, only Isiah or sum1 related to him would be dumb enuff to trade Kaman for Curry. You brought up a good point, Although I think Currys poor play is his own fault he could make a very good case that Isiahs inablity to build and run a franchise is the reason for his numbers declining and his turnovers/poor defense. His numbers looked good last year but watchin him play it was clear he still had alot to work on.

    1. Defense (1 on 1 and team)
    2. turnovers
    3. conditioning
    4. mental toughness
    5. Rebounding
    6. passing out of double team
    7. Effort


    NyKnicks126....I think I remember that thread but I never responded to it. I wish I was around more for some of these old classic debates, It was a no brainer then and same now. Kaman is way better then Curry and he is often left out of top 10 Center lists, he is a top 10 center. I see curry in the top 40, his defense and lack of ability to rebound really hold him back. His offense is overrated by 70% of Knick fans.

    Kaman's tempting, but he's not the answer to the Knicks defensive woes. He's also got a huge contract which is just what the Knicks need

    Kaman Would Be A Nice Fit Wit Randolph Cause Kaman Got Good Defense,grab Rebounds,score And Got More Heart Than Curry. I Would Make That Trade Wit My Eyes Close Wit No Brain And With My Hands Tied Behind My Back.
