Knicks don't have a future...i just watched a highlight clip of Ersan Illyasova on the Bucks....he's better than Danilo Gallinari........Except pure shooting he is a more complete player...and light years ahead of Danilo in terms of D.
and they got him in the 2nd round.
"... difference in your opinion between "buying" a franchise player or acquiring one through draft/trade? would it make you fell like less of a true fan if we "bought" one?i know i would. i believe that the term "true" is a better adjective when describing the knicks history and tradition, as opposed to the yankees." - ANU*ZZZzz ehh.... Rivera, Jeter, Pettite, Posada, Hughes, Joba, etc... all "home grown" talent, tenures over ten plus years. Sports is a business 1st! "True" fans root for the Jersey not the Player. Doesn't matter how they're acquired. Success isn't determined by draft picks only, a successful team takes adv. of all opportunities. Using the Yankees as your example = FAILURE! Good bye... P.S. its been so long, I doubt any Knick fan would mind a championship. What the team does in the off season /reg sea. doesn't matter- Winning does- beggers can't be choosers!
you're a true fan all right.secondly, all the important pieces in yankees run the last 15 years have come up through the minor league system with the exception of sabathia and a roid.you lose again.
your post was an utter fail.
maybe you should delete this one too and try again.

lol.forced your hand? you're nobody.**** outta here.my post was about how i feel.i don't care if you agree or disagree.should i feel good about our team "buying" a championship? I'm not gonna lie to myself.I won't.you can do that if you want.i personally don't give a **** if you do or don't.
all i know is ain't no free agent worth the max coming here.bosh is probably gonna go to chicago or miami.everybody else has it better where they are than they would coming here.they can make more money THERE.and right now, they can win more THERE.
everybody knows what curry and jeffires can do.if someone wants them tell them to come get them.
coach is wasting his time playing them and the rest of veterans.if you really wanna show free agents that you can offer more than nyc, play the young guys to show THEM what kind of players they could be running with.
hill gallo chandler hughes douglas.
everybody else needs to get traded before the break.

obviously he sounds like a douche', but i think what he meant was a we've never had go to guy.and that's true.“It’ll be interesting,” Bryant said after the Lakers beat the Knicks, 100-90, Tuesday. “It’ll be interesting. I know those guys want to sit back and see their options. New York will definitely be one of the options. Whether they go or not, I don’t know.”
Bryant said he believed New York has never had one of the league’s most notable players, like Bryant, James, or Michael Jordan. (Bryant seems to count
Hall of Famers like Walt Frazer, Willis Reed, Dave DeBusschere, Patrick Ewing as role players). They may land a player of Bryant’s caliber next summer. It just won’t be him.
“It’ll make a difference,” Bryant said. “That city has never had that. They’ve never had a flashy or marquee guy. If you look back to the years that they won championships, it’s always been a team effort. They never had a star, so this will be the first time they’ve had one of those guys…”
