    The Knicks needed to get rid of Isiah Thomas for one big reason, he kept trading for "Selfish" veteran cancer players that 80% of the NBA teams did not want on their roster. If Isiah could have improve one or two of these cancer-players it would'nt be so bad, but Isiah and his coaching staff made these cancer players worst than what they were on their previous teams.

    To replace Isiah Thomas with Donnie Walsh was not an upgrade for the Knicks if you have any knowledge of Walsh 20 year experience in Indiana. Coach Larry Brown and coach Larry Bird saved Donnie Walsh Job in Indiana. It's something simular to how Mchale saved his ex-teammate Danny Ainge Job lastseason. But 5 or 10 years from now people will say Danny Ainge got the Boston Celtics a Championship.

    Zach Randolph is the worst player on the Knicks roster "on and off the court".

    The Knicks would've got the best out of Zach Randolph for a 2nd round pick trade. Donnie Walsh would have got Big Props all around the NBA league if he would have made that Zach for a 2nd ronud pick trade.

    That "Zach" trade would've gave the Knicks so much leverage in putting "Discipline" in the organization from players attitude, coaches priority, management expectation, and lead to the first step of a serious-certive of Donnie Walsh 2010 Plan. Super Star Players like Lebron James, Wade, Bosh, and ....., would've took the Knicks serious about building a Championship Team.

    Donnie Walsh is an "IDIOT"!
    I kind of have to agree with you now. At first I was willing to give Donnie a chance. I figured he was trying to get something better. But now I just wish we had taken the deal in the first place. We're going to regret this decision if we still have Randolph on the team this year.

    I don't understand what Donnie and Mike D are doing. If we had done the same deal the Nuggets did for Camby, we would have wiped away Zach's contract immediately and would have got a $10 million trade exception. Our cap situation would have been solved NOW and we could have had money to sign a decent free-agent before 2011 to go along with Lebron, Bosh or Wade. Or we could have had Camby on our team this year.

    I'm depressed. I had hope in Donnie, but now I'm starting to wonder. I don't like how Donnie is taking his time. If he hasn't noticed, the rest of the league has moved quickly and we stood around waiting while everybody else has improved.

    One thing i dont understand is why the #1 priority it to trade Randolph. Why isnt it to trade curry? At least randolph is solid fundamentally. I would rather see z-bo at center then curry at center. Were gonna need some rebounding....last time i checked curry doesnt rebound.


    I dont see how this trade makes sense for either team, especially the nuggets. The clippers needed a power forward who can score. I see camby as more of a power forward then chris kaman...camby actually did used to play power forward. And i think he can prove me wrong and score if he has to. Ive seen him run the floor like a point guard...and hes got an ok jumpshot.

    This makes no sense for the nuggets. There problem was that they didnt play defense...so how they gonna trade the only player on their team that plays defense? From now on im callin them the Enver Nuggets, without the D.

    No offense to Zach haters but wouldnt Lee at PF and Zach at Center give us a million rebounds, atelast there is a positivie with Zach at center since Curry is the only center on this team. Like Pat Riley says, rebounds wins games.

    THANK YOU! I'm tired of everyone making Zach Randolph the #1 trade priority. I understand he's overpaid, but damn. At least he's productive. Eddy Curry averages 13 points, 4 rebounds, and .5 blocks. If I didn't know Curry was 6-11, I would've assumed he was a small forward. Curry plays soft. He's overweight. Eddy Curry's been in the NBA for 7 years. It should be clear by now that Curry will never be a good defender, rebounder, free throw shooter, passer, conditioner, or player period. Zach Randolph, unlike Curry, has been on winning teams before. He's been to the playoffs two times in his career. Curry has never been to the playoffs, and a lot of it is his fault. The center position is the main position where you need defense and rebounding from, because if your center doesn't play defense or rebound, point guards could just snatch the rebounds from you and drive the basketball to the basket all game long.

    PS- Eddy Curry has 3 YEARS and 31 MILLION DOLLARS left on his contract.
    He has a chance to opt out, in 2010, but HE'S NOT GOING TO OPT OUT.

    Mike D'Antoni should say, if Eddy Curry doesn't opt out, I will bench him forever
