    Default I Want Us To Sign Chris Bosh Because

    he'd look badass in our teams uniform.I would have been against it if we still had Jordan Hill since it'd be two players with similar looks, but we don't, so now I want Bosh.Imagine him roaring in the Garden after dunking on somebody with an orange mouthpiece.

    Just sayin'.

    I'd say he aligns more with the Avatar look. Hahahhaa the dude is straight out of James Cameron's fantasy world.

    Only if he doesn't ask for a max contract should we consider him to be a part of this team.

    Sorry, but there's only 4 MAX FA players in the market this offseason (Lebron, D.Wade, Bosh, and Dirk), which performance earned above $15M to $20M per season.
    FA: Amare, Joe Johnson, Boozer, and Gay, are only worth $12M to $14M per season, depending mostly on the high rate tax of the State their team is in.

    i'd go with only 1 max player...'bron... but with so many teams having $$$ to spend, u can probably add wade,bosh to the mix (dirk has said he is staying in dallas), johnson,amare not in my eyes...

    Nyk Logo Bosh most sense after LeBron

    I agree. Aside from LBJ, Bosh makes the most sense. I would have preferred to keep and develop Jordan Hill. In three years he might develop into a cheaper version of Bosh, but getting rid of Jeffires bad contract was too tempting.

    Unfortunately, signing Bosh probably means that David Lee will be gone, although keeping Lee, Bosh, Gallo, and Chandler makes sense if the Knicks can acquire a good defensive center (Camby, Dalembert, or Okafor).

    One possibility would be to use Lee in a sign-and-trade to acquire Greg Oden. This would be a massive gamble that Oden can finally stay healthy, but a front-court of Oden, Bosh, Gallo, and Chandler - with only one max contract - is pretty tempting. If Curry somehow plays better than a bum for the next 19 games (as bone headed as he has been - we never have before seen him at an actual playing weight), the Oden gamble is even more viable.

    This might make it viable to wait for Chris Paul the following year. If McGrady is really willing to sign for a mid-range contract, you could end up with a legit contender in 2011-2012:

    Oden, Bosh, Gallo, Chandler, some other frontcourt role players
    McGrady, CP3, Toney Douglas, Bill Walker, SRodriguez

    Not bad at all.

    At least Lee is durable. Oden missed his rookie season and now suffered another season-ending injury in his second full season.

    I think there is a better chance of Lee improving on his defense than Oden staying health for the full season.

    I don't see bosh or dirk as max free agents. Only desperate GMs would give those two max contracts.

    Bosh is definitely a max. He just is. I feel the same, but he's unquestionably worth the $16+m cap average max contract.

    That is why I included the price range....lets be for-real about the MAX FA in the 2010 offseason.

    Dirk might finish his NBA career hanging out with the Mavs biggest Fan "Owner Cuban".

    Bosh would lose alot of money coming to the New York Knicks, who offer the highest Tax-Bracket and the highest cost of living in this country.
    Plus Bosh decision to move to a team in the same division as the Raptors would be a big-slap in the face to the Toronto Raptors Organization and to all the Raptors Fans. If the Raptors traded Bosh to the Knicks it would be a different story and outcome from their fans when the Knicks went to Toronto.

    D.Wade is the Miami Heat Franchise Player to hold things down from the big competition of the Orlando Magic Superman-Howard from grabbing all the Fans in Florida.

    Lebron is the King of Ohio State for the next ???? years to come.
    Knick-Fans may not like it, but
    That's being for-real!!!

    So our $32M+ spending money will have to be used on a couple of decent "Team-Players" in the FA market this offseason.
    I did not care or understand the reason for the Damntoni Phoenix Suns giving up their first round picks each season....but as a Die-Hard Knick-Fan I am not liking the future of not having a 2009, 2010, and 2012 first round draft pick b/c Damntoni is clueless of developing young players for the NBA.
    Damntoni is clueless to so many things as a NBA headcoach....
    He have to be awarded as the worst headcoach the Knicks had in their history in the NBA.

    Bosh said he wants to be built around.That's why I can see him either staying in Toronto, who is a Playoff team, or the Knicks, who might build around him if he's the biggest star they get.
