    Trade Icon Pursue Bosh. Who's with me?

    Before someone else does, I believe that trading for Bosh this summer is a solid move for the Knicks.

    We need a star. A tall one. That plays at least semi-high level D.

    I've been crapping on & on about Bosh coming here since I heard that he's not loving the Raps. Border issues, management clashes & the want to be a ★STAR★ in a city where it actually holds some meaning.

    He's not that shot blocker/changer we need, but seriously, we need someone to hand the ball to who'll be reliable with it. He can play D from the baseline to the tip of the arc & has good footwork & lateral movement at near 7 feet.
    He has a reliable mid to sometimes long range jump shot & can be baffling for opponents as a lefty.

    The question of having Wade or James eventually donning the orange and blue is going out on a very shaky-breaky limb.

    We need a star, Bosh can be that star. In my humble opinion.

    He's had an off season through being disgruntled and having niggling injuries, but as I've said in the past "He'd be an awesome fit for Mike D's system"

    This was the best trade I could figure out with Lee's upcoming sign & trade in the off-season.

    I'm not that high on Bosh, but I'd still think it would be an upgrade...

    It would take way more than D. Lee and Al Harr for us to get Bosh.

    Nate and D Lee for Bosh?? Im not high on Bosh either. I think he's alittle overrated as a leader. But I'll take him over anything we have right now. He'll aslo be an attractive piece to lure another superstar in 2010

    Hell No! Bosh is the type of player that puts teams in a hole. A notch below superstar player getting a max contract. Bosh is good not great.

    Im not with you. Bosh is a soft bum, overrated. We dont need no cottonelle ass toilet paper softies on our team, we have enough of those already. Bosh is a black dirk nowitzki, i would take a younger dirk over bosh.

    players like bosh lead their teams to the playoffs (which hes actually failed to do this year), not to the finals. We better think more physical if were lookin to come out of the east one of these years...bosh is a waste of time.

    Bosh is great, picking up him would make guys like LeBron or Wade want to come here more. If we get him there will be others that follow

    I think Chris Bosh would be a good fit for the Knicks, but only if the Knicks sorround him with good talent.

    A lineup of
    PG Duhon
    SG Hughes
    SF Chandler
    PF Bosh
    C Jeffries

    wouldn't even get the Knicks to the playoffs. The Knicks need improvement at the shooting guard, center, and point guard positions.

    Bosh would attract other players in 2010. He would be a perfect 2nd or 3rd option on a Championship team

    that trade is perfect....Lee is a defensive liability and Bosh would have better numbers than Lee if he was a Knick. Bosh could finally be our offensive go-to-guy that we haven't had since Allan Houston.

    We are a three point shooting team and no other player would be better than Jason Kapono who is a fantastic player from beyond the arc.

    Harrington is a good scorer but shoots the ball more than everyone on the team....I can take away Harrington's scoring and Lee's rebounding for Bosh and Kapono.

    Some members on this board see him as soft and overrated and bla bla bla. I think a new environment would do him nothing but good. He havn't been happy in Toronto for a long time. He would be reborn and when his game face is on. It's ON. He is a great player. I would like too see him in orange and blue.

    Chris Bosh is the perfect big man for this system. He can shoot, run the floor, good post up and face up game. He's a pretty good defender too, he played very well defensively in the Olympics. I would do Crazy8s' trade in a heartbeat. Might not be enough for the Raptors though. We could throw in Nate, or Chandler and our 1st rounder.

    That's my major concern, is that we'd have to give up too much for him.
    Harrington, Lee & a pick just seems too much to me.

    Maybe if we were to throw in the expiring contract of Hughes & some additional cash? Maybe a free years access to NY's ritziest brothel with an all oriphice access card? Who'd say no to that?

    Then (if possible) sign AI to a mle?

    Either way, I'd love to have a 5 next year of.

    Nate
    AI (huge IF) so long as it's on the cheap.
    Chandler
    Bosh
    Wilcox

    With Gallinari, Duhon, A fit Eddy Curry (never to be traded) Jeffries, Richardson & a dirt cheap Ewing Jr along with whoever we sign on draft night. Hopefully Thabeet or a decent pg and we pick up a shot blocker in the mean time.

    If we could sign Iverson to a mid level exception and trade the expiring contract of Hughes along with cash, we'd have a very decent team with an obvious upgrade at almost all positions in the starting 5.

    I'm dead sick of a-holes making pointless assumptions on this site, but I dare say the afore mentioned team would be a 7th or 8th seed in the East.
