And Lee's rebound numbers are the most important thing about him and if we give him we better get a damn good guy guaranteed to help this club Lee is too much of an asset.If we get shot blocking center then defense on the 3 and 4 spots wouldn't be as stressed about. Honestly we should keep Lee because he's a rebounding machine and is improving offensively every year and he can move good in a D'Antoni system dont forget Lee was a big dunker back in the day and he's proven that white men can jump. I think Lee is more valuable then Nate robinson even Nate is great, Lee has too many positives.
    Mike No-D'Antoni needs jump shooters; hence, I don't actually see Lee fitting well that much. He's good I'll tell you that, but will do much better on the proper team, where he's much needed. Moreover I think Lee's importance right now is so we could include him in a package to unload our least marketable tradeables such as Randolph or Curry. Hopefully that's how it goes. However any deal would only be pleasing if we get draft picks in return (high picks, and not 2nd rounders), and/or a young promising player (3 seasons as a pro max).

    im pretty sure i reported this trade rumor in the trade david lee section.. and then it was made into a thread but its ok. well when i heard about this a couple days ago the general consensus is.. not a lot of ppl want to take david lee. first off as much as i like david.. hes just a one dimensional, too slow to play the 3 and D and not much of a shotblocker to be a force in the paint. we love him so much cause he hustles and shows heart which is fine like i said i love the kid. but we worship him cause hes one of the couple that actually show this on the team. hes a six man. and the reason his value isnt as high is because this is his final year so where ever he is traded to he could just peace and sign a contract with another team... a team that would have to fork up around 9-10 million for a six man.

    he interrupts are class of '10 goal and thats why he will be traded. another possibility besides for trading him for felton is a deal with portland for steve blake.. an even worse idea i think. i dont know what the hatred is on Raymond Felton though. hes a solid young player

    the other options is working on a sign and trade. for monta ellis who would love to play for us or possibly ben gordon who has a glut of guards. telfair is an option as well as memphis guard Lowry.

    many things can happen but i wouldnt expect to see david lee or stephon marbury on this team next year.

    I hate to say it but he is right about David. I guess I'm still longing for the days of Ewing, Oak, Mason, and Starks...(even though he cost us that 94 championship)...

    David Lee is the closet thing we have now to an Oakley...on this team. And that's high praise in KNICKS LAND. And I can see why we as fans are so attached to him. I would rather give up Robinson..I just don't think he'll accomplish much for us other than a few ESPN highlights.

    Now if we got Raymond Felton...I don't like his assist/turnover ration to be our starting PG...it's gotten better but needs to go up another notch. It would be his 4th season...so he has good value. Monta Ellis or Gordon..would be a better move...obviously but Felton would be solid.

    We still need a damned SG....and a C..if we are not going to bang the boards.

    I obviously agree on your take on David Lee. Problem is as of late there hasn't still been an offer for a trade (or at least a rumor) involving Lee that can be deemed great IMO. Duhon? C'mon. Blake? Pass. Felton.. Telfair? All seem just so-so to me.

    we need mediocore players to get rid of the high salary players, a team will only accept a big contract if they know they can give up a bench player for a starter being the knicks case.

    how does this trade make any sense. Lee doesn't make any money yet. Lee is our best commodity. You can package him with **** and possible get an expiring or decent players in return with more reasonable contracts.
