    Nyk Logo Its to LATE....

    Why are the Knicks (media) acting like the Knicks are going to start making moves after August 16th this summer.
    It's way to late....the Knicks 2009 summer roster is a 15 win roster next season.


    Donnie Walsh smooth moves with the press will have the New York Sports Media, and Knick-Fans blaming [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] for the Knicks being a 2009-10 Lottery Team; the 2010 draft-pick going to the Utah Jazz.

    We all been watching how the Eastern Conference teams has been upgrading their teams in the last two offseasons, while the Walsh 2010-Plan been down-grading the Knicks for two offseasons.

    Look at the upgrading in the Atlantic Division:
    Boston (Big-4)
    Toronto (Turk)
    Philly (New Headcoach and coaching-staff)
    New Jersey (Guards-Harris, Alston, Lee, and Terrence)
    All the teams in the Atlantic Division upgraded to have a 3-1 record over the Knicks this season.
    And if the upgrades of the Atlantic Division does not prove a strong point then take a good look at eight (8) other upgraded Eastern Conference teams:

    Cavs
    Magic
    Hawks
    Heats
    Bulls (No Gordon but SF-Deng is back)
    Bobcats (Larry Brown 2nd season)
    Wizards
    Pistons
    I put the Pistons last and did not include the Pacers b/c both have PG problems. But the Washington Wizards new coach Flip Suanders with a "HEALTHY-Roster" could do a FLIP Wilson in the Eastern Conference.
    That group consists of Gilbert Arenas, Antawn Jamison, Caron Butler, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], Mcgee, and DeShawn Stevenson.
    Throw in recent acquisitions Randy <NOBR id=itxt_nobr_18_0 style="FONT-WEIGHT: normal; FONT-SIZE: 100%">Foye</NOBR> and Mike Miller, and the Wizards are a .500 plus team.

    As a Knick-Fan....only concentrating on the 2010 FA....which will probably be the largest FA market in the <NOBR id=itxt_nobr_19_0 style="FONT-WEIGHT: normal; FONT-SIZE: 100%">NBA</NOBR> history in one offseason.
    All these ending contract players will be looking foward to having highlights of their "career highs and season highs" off of no-defense celebrity coach Dantoni's Knicks.

    However, Lets GO Knicks!
    the New York Sports writers and announcers will put this 2009-10 Knicks Lottery season as "Isiah Thomas" fault, just like Isiah Thomas first two full seasons were Layden's fault...

    Actually you Thread should be "It's Too Late", but I know what you mean.

    Remember it was too many moves that took The Pistons from perennial Title Contender to on the cusp of being a lottery team!

    Philly coaching staff change is not a signifant move they had an interim coach, they needed to fill the position. I think you're reaching on that one my man!

    Charlotte did indeed make a major move, but they did not get at all better

    You mention NJ, but they only made moves to adhere to the same cap plan Donnie is on

    Plenty of teams make deals after into Aug. remember Mo. Williams wasnt acquired by Clev. until August of last year.

    Not to mention there is at least two trades made every Pre Season, people seem to think that the off season,draft night, and trade deadline is the only time to make moves.


    Now.....I almost do not want to comment on the Isiah Thomas point you made because it is so dellusional and if you honestly beleive that then there is no bringing you back, but I'll try anyway....Most fans know Isiah screwed us in many ways, this is common knowledge to most. Donnie Walsh came in to clean that mess up, but as a result of Isiah's moves Donnie Walsh's hands are tied, he inherited a bunch of expensive players no other team wants, thus making trades very very hard to manipulate. Now to his credit, this man moved Jamal Crawford, Zach Randolph, and Jerome James in the same season. Had this time last year someone told us that would get done, there is no chance any of us wouldve thought it possible.

    I can excuse his Donnie's lack of moves this summer because he has cleaned up a significant part of the worst mess in all major sports. Donnie isnt "using the media to convince everyone he took on Isiah's mess" the whole damn world knows that already! I dont think Donnie has said one bad word about Isiah to the media!

    Another thing, if it isnt Isiah's fault we dont have a pick in 2010, who's fault is it?


    I think you joke about the things you say Kiya just to get a rise out of people, at least I hope that is the case, because if you really think some of the stuff you say is true then you probably eat Vaseline for a sore throat and tape yourself crying in front of the mirror.

    Our team really does not need anymore negativity than we have received over the last 10 years. We should be grateful that we ACTUALLY have somebody that cares to help out our team (Walsh & D'Antoni) We need to all be thankful that we actually have a plan that will take us forward and eventually back to the Finals where we belong. GO KNICKS 2009-2010. We WILL make the playoffs this year. Just give Walsh some time. By the way... Many other teams took time to get on track (Stockton and Malone, Jordan, LeBron, Shaq) Just be patient

    -A full season for Gallo, hopefully he'll be 100%
    -The rookie seasons of Hill and douglas
    -how darko is gonna fit in

    I dont know im no thrilled by this off season either, especially because my favorite player D-LEE is still unsigned but were still knicks fans!

    First of all, the cap mess that the Knicks were/are in is directly do to Isiah's horrible job as GM. He took Laydens's mess and compounded it 10 times over with his horrible signings and trades.What Walsh is trying to do is too get the Knicks in a position to make a run at 1-2 elite free agents. Before last season, the Knicks had no hope what so ever in getting under the cal enough to sign 1 player, never mind 2+!! Walsh has almost completed the impossible on getting rid of all the horrible contracts the Knicks had. If he is able to dump either Curry or Jared; he should be hailed as a Knicks hero!! Think about it; before Walsh took over the Knicks were looking at 4-5 more years of cap hell; Walsh has all but eliminated that and it is amazing. My only concern is that Walsh has such tunnel vision with the cap that he could potentially pass up a great trade in trying to protect the 2010 cap! If Walsh can convince Lee to sign at his true value, same with Nate; retain these guys and get at least 1 of the elite guys that will be available in 2010, we as Knicks fans should be thrilled!

    Hate all u want....u guys still dont get it.

    The way our roster stands on August 17.....without taking care of bussiness with either of our FA "Lee or Nate" whom played an important role in our small (7-man) rotation. We are a 15 WIN season team! "Everything thats understandable should be understood so it dont have to be explain".

    Lakers understand the importance of Lamar Odom, resigned.
    Hawks understand the importants of Marvin Williams, resigned.
    Celtics understand the importants of Big-Baby, resigned.
    Nuggets understand the importants of Birdman & Carter, resigned.
    These players add strong-depth in their teams rotation.

    We have some bright B-Ballers in this forum......what part of this dont u understand? after August 7. Lee and Nate should've been resigned so management could put more focus on getting other decent players to add to this season rotation.
    To assume that Nate & Lee will be forced to resign a one year contract at the end of the offseason is taking a big chance on a Hoe becomming a housewife.
    A sign and trade is scary in September b/c of injuries, out of shape players, and disgruntle players will be traded at that time.
    We can count on a 100% performance from Lee & Nate, we cant say that about the next team players coming to New York and pulling another Mobley (act) whom played 32 mpg in every game as a starter for the Clippers last season.
    Plus the fact that Knick managerment need to have 100% focus on a decent return for the "Curry & Jefferies 2010 situation" whom may have to play this season before a trade is made, and for us not to take in the fact that Curry & Jefferies mesh well with Nate or Lee duo is not understanding the importance of our restricted FA.

    Did i miss it? Did David Lee or Nate Robinson sign with another team? Because last time i checked there both sitting out in free agency getting absolutely zero interest from other teams. Lee is going to have to decide if he wants to sign a very fair 4 year 32 million dollar deal or take his chance playing on a one year deal and putting himself in the exact same positiion next season. We'll still have his bird rights so if we want to keep him we'll have a chance to keep him.

    Nate is a different story he's proably unsigned due to a wink wink deal between management. He's basically said he's coming back but he's letting the Knicks figure out what there going to do with the rest of the offseason.. For people who don't remember the season doesn't start until late October. Lee and Nate barrying a trade for say a Rubio or another established player are going to be back next year.

    Does it really matter to me if they signed on July 1st or October 1st? Not the slightest bit. But i'm sure Kiya (hands down worst poster on the site) has a conspiracy theory that says other wise.

    Whats the common link between the Marvin Williams, Lamar Odom, Big Baby, and Chris Andersen? They all hit the market didn't recieve many offers due to salary cap restrictions and the economy and they all eventually went back to there original team. Hmmm that sounds fimiliar to the Lee siuation.

    42 wins?! What happened did I miss us trading for Dwight Howard or something??

    Ok so 15 wins is a bit low but seriously, we aren't more than a 30~ win team and won't be until we develop our roster a bit.

    I did not PREDICT a 15 Win Season....this Post says with the lineup we have now (signed contract players) on August 16 2009. are a 15 win season team.

    We did not use our MLE yet or resign any of our FA players.....
    What part of your reading comprehension did not understand this???

    So you're saying it but not predicting it. I see. No I don't.

    And all the players you listed as crucial re-signings have more than one crucial thing in common.

    The players that they play with.

    Big Baby - Allen, Pierce, KG, Rondo.
    Odom - Gasol, Artest, Bynum and that other guy....
    Birdman - Melo, Smith, Nene.
    Williams - J Smooth, JJ, Bibby.

    Would any of these players be so crucial without their on court leaders? Yes. One. Odom. That's it.

    And the fact that all of them. Once again Odom being the exception, were NOT flooded with offers for their services and returned to their current teams.

    And Mobley was acting the heart palpitations? Really?

    You're bordering on senility.
