lol...who the hell drafts a guy who averages 6.6ppg
Who didn't expect someone like that to be a bust?
Guys like Gallinari, Ricky, Rudy have no bust potential because they were elite in the league at a very young age.
Nicoloz wasn't elite at all, and played in a 2nd level league...he was just young and 7 foot.
Same happen to Darko, but Darko does have talent...just a poor attitude.
Metro.....when young players at the age inwhich Gallo, Ricky, and Rudy, were comming into the Euro-league and performing the way they did speaks alot about that league. Competition is weaker than Ruckers Park.
U are also being way to nice to Darko....whom Billups, RIP, and Ben Wallace did not want a player (Carmelo) in that draft to replace Prince in the rotation.
Dumars stupidity (on all the Media's Big Hype each year on these Euro-League Players has been getting outrageous) selecting Darko to replace Okur whom Okur undevelope form showed big NBA level improvement in their previous postseason games making Ewing retire after losing a 3-1 lead in a series, plus giving Mutombo hell in the next series.
The entire Championship Detroit Roster did their best in helping Darko improve to the NBA level of B-Ball, which seem like a waste of time and energy when....Darko short visit with the Orlando Magic should explain what we will be receiving.
I'm just happy we got "Q.Richardson" out of our Lockerroom and from around Knick Players, Q.Rich has always been a divider of teammates since he was on the Clippers.

Out of all the players I want our poor coaching-staff to work hard with:
SG: Morris Almond, Rice, 6'6, 215lbs
SG: Joe Crawford, Kentucky, 6'5", 210lbs
Two players inwhich we all talked about last year.

cosign Kiyah, darko does not get a pardon because of his size
Let Darko play first before you ax him.
I believe the signing of Almond is related to a possible 3way trade the Knicks may be cooking.
He's good friends with Josh Smith, who has not been shy about wanting to leave ATL and rumors have been that the Hawks are trying to move him. Smith has the power to veto any trade made before August 13, 2009.

Hopefully we kill Thabeet.
I remember from last year that the NBA streamed quite a lot of summer league games. Do they have a similar thing this year? If so, can someone post the link please?
They really don't get it, do they? Probably they saw the user statistics from last year and thought 'Hey, there might be some money in it.' . But I guess those statistics were mainly due to the fact that it was free last year.
Who -- apart from Kiya -- is going to pay for watching summer league basketball?
Patrick Ewing Jr. withdrew from the Knicks' summer league team because of a medical issue. Ewing, who attended the Knicks' training camp last fall, injured his knee while playing in the N.B.A. Development League. -- NY Times
