Thread: Would you trade for Rudy Fernandez?

  1. #1

    Default Would you trade for Rudy Fernandez?

    I was watching a Portland game last week and the commentators were saying that the Blazers were in the market to trade Rudy Fernandez.

    I really like this player, he brings tons of energy, can drive to the basket, has a good jump shot and can knock down threes, thus making him good for the system applied by the Knicks.

    I was wondering if anyone could work out any kind of trade that we could make for him. My opinion is that if htere is chance then the Knicks should attempt to aquire him but in reality I don`t know who of our players Portland would be interested in.

    What do you think guys? Go for him and if so who could we send to Portland?

    I don't think he is that great...he isn't a great defender and not a top player at any position.

    We have guys as good or better.

    You will probably get the same answer from everyone. We will take him if they take Jefferies or Curry's contract.

    hell yes.imo, he's a sg version of gallo with better hops.

    ideally, i would like to have a 2 and a 4 who can shoot the long ball to strech the floor for post player(s) and players who drive to the basket.if i could net fernandez and outlaw for lee, i'd do it, even though lee is a better player than both.fact is if we get lebron we lose him for nothing, and if we sign him, we won't get lebron.

    the thread question is idiotic.


    In the last 6 months, every thread that has talked about trading or acquiring someone has included Rudy Fernandez in some way, shape or form.


    It's getting old. Get off it.

    Pull your head out of your own backside SLY. If my thread is idiotic then why bothering reading it and replying?

    I am starting to suspect that Rudy Fernandez has relatives who post on Knicks Online.How else could you explain all the love that he receives from Knick fans here? I'm not denying that Fernandez has talent but why do so many Knick fans treat this guy as though he were Larry bird? What did he do to earn this kind of anointment? Since he is such a great player do you think that Walsh should give him the max contract when he becomes a free agent?

    Stop the sarcasm and actually watch Fernandez play and you'll see a world class athlete. Did you watch the 2008 Olympic Gold Medal Game? I don't think so, he was by far the best Spaniard in that game and has great potential. We Knicks can't just go after made commodities, we have to go for the unknown and steal great players away and Rudy Fernandez is one of them.

    I watched Rudy Fernandez play many times but I didn't see a potential NBA superstar.I saw a very good 3 point shooter with a solid field goal percentage who could be a very valuable 3rd scoring option on a championship team.He might have looked like the best player on the Spanish team but how many players fail to have the same kind of success in the NBA that they had overseas? I'm not comparing Darko to Rudy but didn't Darko Milicic lead Serbia and Montenegro at the 2006 Fiba World Championship? How did he fair up against NBA talent? To call Rudy Fernandez a great NBA player sounds like an overstatement.I know the guy might have a special place in the hearts of many basketball fans who are a part of the Latino community but let's not over hype a player based on what he has accomplished in another country.

    Don't get too smart about it ****.

    It's called separation anxiety.

    We haven't had a real 2 guard for a LONG ****ing time.

    I'd still be very down with acquiring Fernandez along with the other half of Portland's disbanded Spanish Armada, the kings Sergio Rodriguez.

    If you actually think about it, or know anything about it, there are a few reasons Fernandez is yet to emerge as far as his high talent level can take him.

    He plays behind Brandon Roy.

    Portland was SO stacked at the 2 & 3 spots that PT was hard to come by.

    He's only in his sophomore season really after a debilitating injury.

    And that whole Latino comment is borderline rude.

    we would have to trade Lee, Hill and Douglas to get Fernandez....everyone else on our team is useless.

    no we wouldn't.i think lee is more than enough.

    and starky, the guy was competing against wade and kobe, the 2 best shooting guards on the planet, and he held his own.even played some pg when rubio got hurt.

    What's with the name calling? Are you emotionally 12 years old? Or were you taught how to act dysfunctional growing up? Sorry, but I don't debate topics with people who are disrespectful,nasty,rude,vulgar and who lack the civility to have regular discussions with other human beings.You might find it normal to talk that way with your homies but I've learned how to shun people who don't know how to control the things that come out of their tongue.Have a nice night and learn how to be a little more courteous before you decide to engage yourself in a debate with me next time.
