i think the knicks should pursue for artest b/c artest could play d, take jump shots
He deserves that money, hes been underpaid his whole career.
Artest is a nutjob. He's a great defender and I know that's what the Knicks need but getting him is a gamble. He'll do just find until he gets heckled by an ungratefulness Knicks fan and goes Columbine on them. One of the requirements before Artest puts on a Knicks uniform should be a mental evaluation. Seriously. Just like Curry, if Artest checks out, by all means, let him play. If not he can go chill with Spreewell.
No he isn't. He's the most misunderstood player in the NBA. The Detroit Brawl wasn't his fault. Artest is a respectful family man who's done a lot for his community in Queens and in places in Indiana and Sacramento. He's America's nightmare; a successful talented minority from NYC with high self esteem and goals for himself.
Again, Artest is a great defender and I'm not hating on him but just listen to him talk and read some of his interviews. He does not display rational thinking. Saying we need a defender, get Artest isn't thinking twice. I'm saying what's the harm in getting him evaluated? What do you think would happen if he was heckled for poor play. Knicks fans are ruthless. If Artest couldn't handle it in Indy and openly talks about the Kings being better with out him what makes you think he will make it in NY? You guys don't even question it? How can you be 100% sure Ronny wont flip out?
If the deal for Kidd to the Mavs goes down, Stackhouse would be an expiring contract. Shouldn't the Knicks try to get in the trade and offer eddy curry to the nets for stackhouse? The nets starting line up could look like this:
Not bad, and this way the knicks get an expiring contract.
