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:
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:
Bulls (No Gordon but SF-Deng is back)
Bobcats (Larry Brown 2nd season)
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...
