Hell no to a potential 12 mil per for Lee! What he scores he gives it up at the other end. Watching Lee play defense is like watching a girl, 13 ****ing blocks in 1,156 minutes so far this season. Jordan Hill has 7 blocks in only 80 minutes.

Jordan Hill should be our future power forward/Center and not Lee, if that doesn't happen I will no longer root for the Knicks.
Whether or not one might think Lee should or shouldn't signed, if he isn't re-signed & he isn't traded, it will be (yet another) pathetic and shameful display of organizational incompetence.
Listen, as well as Lee is playing, and I do thin he may be all star deserving, he still does not jump to block shots and if he plays a bonafied big, its just a trade basket affair. Let's be real, if we swap Lee for Bosh, we get the better player. If lee is gonna command Bosh money (can't see how since Bosh is the center piece for his team, where Lee is not) Then I suggest we try and trade him now before the deadline rather than wait and see what happens with Lebron first. Lebron will first off not sign unless the Knicks have signed a lee or bosh to play with. You can forget it. And secondly, Lebron will absolutely take his time with any and all negotiations, especially if it involves leaving Cle.
My take on it is either Sign Lee to a deal that won't put ya over the cap before the season ends, or just Go for Bosh who is definitely not staying in Toronto. Bosh may even backload his contract, knowing we're aiming for Bron as well. Bosh>>>Lee, let's be real. If we like what Lee is doing, We'll love what Bosh will bring. I think him wanting out of TO, will mae his contract more reasonable. To me, this guy needs to be a priority, regardless to whether Lee stays, or Lebron does not come. A lee, Bosh front line with Gallo and Chandler coming on would be really strong. Really strong.
By the way, a few of us were throwing this aroun dat the barbershop the other day. And it dawned on us that the reason we have passed on so many pgs and such in draft or fa, is because d'antoni wants a certain type of player there. meanwhile, they keep drafting forwards who can shoot and score off the dribble. That leads me to believe that they wish Lebron to play pg. He certainly has the ability to do so. there would be no reason in my mind why LB can't play pg in this league. Has the handle, speed and he always looks to set up teammates. In this offense, he'd be Magic Johnson on steriods.
just a thought.
Bosh for Lee would be a no brainer. Bosh can produce what Lee does and more plus play better defense. If Lee wants 11 mil I would immediately see what Bosh's status is first. Lee's defense will always be exposed in the playoffs.
Think about it, Oakley was less offensive and athletic than Lee BUT his value is far greater because he guarded the basket with pride which helped the team to win close games on most nights.
