is to get rid of Zach, Q.Rich, and Fred Jones for "Kenyon Martin & Ron Artest". I could deal with the rest of the Cancer Players in the offseason.
We want our Roster down to 13 to 14 Players by the end of this season.
Zach and a 2nd round pick can get us K-Mart.
Q.Rich, Jefferies (or Rose), and Jones can get us Ron Artest & K-Thomas.
The Knicks have to many Players on their Roster that has not been given a fair shake of playingtime to establish a needed performance to help the team (Morris, Chandler, Collins, Balkman, James, and Nate Robinson).
Being a bench player getting Role Playingtime alongside of one-teammate that has a "One on One" talent is acceptable on a Team. However, when a bench player get playingtime alongside of three to four teammates that only talent is their "One on One" offense with no defensive-effort that bench player should not be accountable for his up and down performance alongside of so many "One on One" Teammates (Marbury, Crawford, Q.Rich, Zach, Curry, and Fred Jones. That is way to many over compensated offensive players on one Team.).
The Knicks are in desparate need for "TWO" veteran Complimentary Players that can play off the ball and dont have a problem playing DEFENSE every game.
And Kenyon Martin & Ron Artest fits that bill perfectly for this Knick Team. Plus they would be the only reliable players that deserve playingtime over the rest of the roster as new aquisitions.
Zach Randolph did not deserve playingtime or the Starting PF position over David Lee, which was the start of the Head Coach foolish decision making in the 2007-8 season when Zach did not appear in any of the Knicks offseason work outs at the Gym to show his dedication for the Job.
Zach Randolph would've applied more effort to this Knick Team if he would have been David Lee's backup off the bench. Plus the coach confidence in David Lee would've made Lee play harder and devote alot of time in improving Eddy Curry Low-Post game to keep his Starting position over Zach Randolph $45 million dollar contract. Lee performance would've been about a BIG contract extension this season playing hard with the President/Coach confidence in him rather than opting out.
There was'nt any improvement in Fred Jones skillz & talent from the Pacers & Blazers for him to receive playingtime over Nate & Collins whom young hustling performance was/is only lacking the Head Coach Confidence.
This was not just a foolish decision on the coach this was the incapable handling of a clueless coach of his players.
The two years of consistent Back injury of Q.Richardson should've been a big sign of notice to have a replacement ready and prepared for his third season back injury by starting the season off with dividing the SF-Position between 3-players Q.Rich, Balkman, Chandler (Jared Jefferies is a single-man defender whom playingtime should always be alongside of a Scoring SF, which Rookie Chandler & D-Nichols would've been perfect teammates for their first season.).
This closal BAD decision is the REASON to bite the $200 Million dollars lost by management and FIRE ISIAH Thomas before it get any WORSE...
