what is this like the 80th thread on this trade?
my only thoughts is that you need to revise your avatar.
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG i cant believe we would trade crawford away... harrington sucks and has mental problems...he suffers from a disease that makes him believe hes better than what he is
I don't know enough about Harrington to make a good judgment...but it seems like moving crawford out is like taking the one player, besides z, who we look to for certain plays and stuff..i mean comon Qrich? the guy's got stronger but he still ain't nothing special as far as i'm concerned..nate is good but he's still young..duhon? good D i guess.. Crawford took some wild shots but his 3 point play has been pretty good lately, i'm not sure i understand why they'd trade him for Harrington. but i'm hopefull. new faces are always good
This is a good move by walsh once again. It really sux that we lose a good ofensive weapon. Crawford would have accepted any role on the team, he is definitely 6th MOY material. I like this move because it agrees with our 2010 plan. I wish we could have gotten bellinelli out of the deal as well, but i guess gs would have wanted expirings (which we want to keep). Harrington is overraetd, and has to prove himself the knick fans (not an easy task). Walsh maintained his patience, and allowed crawfords trade value to rise, and then he traded him. I feel that randolph is next.
Crawford is clearly a better scorer...i mean do the knicks think there going to be bettered so much by harringtons defense that it will make up for the points they'll be missing with crawford? i don't want to jump to conclusions on how harrington will be, if he's like Z we'll do well, but the numbers when comparing Harrington and Craw speak for themselves...
i don't think this is anything more then the knicks wanting to get rid of another contract....we better be getting LJ with all these people were getting rid of
This move is fine by me. The gameplan is to get under the cap for the big LeBron offseason, so this measures up.
The Knicks don't have a problem scoring, so I dont think losing Jamal is that big of an issue, but the Knicks have depended on him when he's hot for such a long time that it will be intersting to see who they rely on in crunch time.
Nate Robinson's stats are going to explode now that he is starting. If you have a fantasy team, pick him up right now
theres another trade on the way it seems. Soemthing with the Clippers. The Knicks just activated Marbury so that they don't get fined for not having enough players dressed.
If Crawford is indeed gone for Harrington, it proves that Walsh is dead serious about getting under the cap for 2010.
If he traded Crawford for Harrington, I fully expect he will trade Z-Bo for almost anything that will get him under the cap in 2010. Crawford's 2010 contract is about $7M less than Z-Bo's.
This is not about making the team better this year.
If Nate will be our starting sg I dont think we lost anything.
Nate is a better (younger too)player then J C and now that he will start and he s minutes increase so should his stats.
So anytime you shed so much salary witch will be esential in 2 years, have same or better option at that position and get Al Harington in the process
you just made a pretty good trade
GOOD MOVE WALSH
This helps my fantasy team immensely. I have nate and chandler.
I honestly think if we get rid of zach we will be worse (where is the scoring gonna come from). But, it certainly means we are landing a big free agent in 10
if we get rid of Z we'll have no one to look to to score on a basis...zip
