    Im actually shocked GS gave us all that talent for David Lee.

    Add in Andy Rautins, Jerome Jordan, and Landry Fields.

    We may have ourselves a helluva supporting cast.

    We shoulda chose Lance Stephenson now hindsight.

    We still dont have a go to guy.

    Man, if we can land Carmelo somehow, it would be beyond bittersweet. Hometown product/hero/shoveitdownLeDivasThroat

    yeah ur right

    u know wats the funny thing lala was on hot97 and she said

    "Melo is thinking about New York ... but I don't really wanna stomp on the city of Denver cause it's been a great place"

    really sounded like she gave it away. she did say that there are other factors though. just cause he wants NY doesn't mean it's a done deal.

    I refuse to believe Carmelo Anthony is going to the Knicks. Thats my fav player and don't believe it till I see it. I wish he would play tuffer defense, but his offensive game is second to no one. Melo makes makin baskets look easy. Pure scorer is the label I give him.

    And here's a news flash, Amare doesnt play defense ether. This team sucks, we'll put up 110, and loss becaue we gave up 118.
    We don't play defense? You mean our completely new roster of players who are now taller, younger and better defenders? How do you know what this team is going to do? How do you know what other moves we will make? GTFOH...don't you have a lame Youtube video to spam? It's better than hearing this drivel.

    Gasol plays with Kobe, that doesnt make him better than Amare head to head.
    Aldrige? You're a moron.
    Dirk is not better than Amare. At shooting? Yes. Everything else, no.
    Bosh is a gay version of Dirk, so you have to be a moron to believe he edges Amare.

    You're just a sad hater man...this whole gimmick sucks and reading your post has been ****ing painful. You sound like someone who can't get over their ex. Just let the **** go and be a logical fan.

    Same mentality?
    Knicks just acquired 3 defensive caliber players with two shot blockers in Randolph and Turiaf and a Raja Bell clone in Azubuike. You're WRONG on that one cowboy.

    The Knicks won 33 games because they were REBUILDING you dickface. Duhon was logging 37 minutes a game, what the hell you EXPECT?

    Fire the coach? D'Antoni hasn't even had a chance yet, you need to sit your ass down and watch this team gel. D'Antoni is part of the rebuilding process. Firing the coach would just make us start over again and it'll take longer to rebuild.


    Jim, you're a Bulls fan and the worst poster on the site...of course you're going to disapprove of this. You're upset because the Knicks didn't acquired MIDWEST losers like Isiah would of done? We have good pieces...go cheer for LeBron's punk midwest ass like you would do on the DL. You're the biggest disgrace on this site.

    When was the last time the Knicks had an All NBA team player, All star caliber, top 3 big man? Patrick Ewing. If you don't think Amare won't make an impact in NY, then you're straight up BUGGIN' out.

    Stop hating if you can't back it up with facts.

    Amare has potential to play VERY good defense. Research his history.
    Yao not being healthly, Duncan being old still make them equal or even better than Stat... and since it seems you don't watch basketball, i'll provide you a comparison to Duncan and Stat

    compare.jpg

    Now old azz Duncan shouldn't even be close to young azz top 3 Amare now should he.. fvckin idiot, watch a game, and learn about basketball. I could go through the entire list and compare but if YOU watched basketball you would already know these stats and know how Amare is NOT a top 3 BIG.

    And im glad you could read the words that I type, but its a shame you can't comprehend them. it's not your fault though i guess its all the time ya spend on the trains selling candy to put money in your pockets or to help your basketball team. idiot. I am not sh*tting on Amares talent, I'm ****ting on the money that was given to Amare. he's a real good, one of the best big men in the leage (NOT TOP 3) ... but he's not worth a max contract. His contract should have been right around what Lee and Boozer received. maybe a tad bit more but the 100 million range was a desperate act by disgusting management of Donnie Walsh in his attempt to possibly lure one of those other guys here. it was a gamble, like these past two years have been, and he lost miserably.

    And yes the Knicks did just acquire some guys, now you state they can play defense, maybe thats true, but Golden State Warriors were one of the worst defensive teams in the league, they allowed the most points, they were the worst rebounding, and were one of the worst at blocking shots... now, i want you to honestly say that someone coming from the kind of coach that Don Nelson is, and going into the practically the same kind of situation in ny will all of a sudden take on a defensive mindset. There is a chance, but the overwhelming probability is that it won't happen. NOT with D'antoni as coach.
    And remember this is the same D'antoni who let Jordan Hill, and Toney Douglas who were said to be decent defenders rot on the bench for the majority of the season. How do you guys continue to have faith in this ****sucka to believe he will all of a sudden allow so called defensive minded players to actually see light on the court

    And again I challenge you and other d'antoni dick huggers on that fact. He didn't have anyone these 3 years? The bucks had better players than the Knicks??? HELL NO... But the Bucks made it to the playoffs. Why, because they had a coach who knew that defense and good play calling wins games. The knicks didn't have a championship team this year or the year prior, but each year they had a team decent enough to compete for the playoffs. Mike D'antoni worthlessness as a coach prevented that. Its a shameful that you guys are unable to see that. You killed Larry Brown after one season, Lenny Wilkins was gone after one, Don Cheanny after a couple seasons, but for putting up a worthless record with decent players, you guys praise d'antoni??? C'mon now!!

    Its good to be optimistic and show team loyalty, but at the same time its also good to call a spade a spade, this team is maybe slightly better than our team last year. We still don't have a point guard, we still don't have a legit 2 guard (maybe walker can be that 2, but its still a MAYBE) You guys need to stop smoking dat sh*t and start seeing things for what they are. The knicks have a team that can compete for the playoffs. THATS IT. but the knicks had a team that could have competed for the playoffs last year as well... see what happened then?

    Too many people expected an instant champioinship contender. We're much, much better than last year....on paper at least and considering the upside of this young team. That's fine with me.

    We just need to get rid of Curry and the Isiah stink will at least leave the building.

    Amare seems to be regaining the peak explosiveness and confidence that, pre-injury-, so many agreed made him a nearly revolutionary, unstoppable player. He reminded me of what LT did for linebacking in some ways.

    25+ppg, multi-blocks, with masterful efficiency achieved through dominant, can't-be-contained ability.

    Contract still scares me because of his age and injury history, but if he stays in shape and motivated we can't ask for much more and he'll be a force.

    He isn't injury "prone". It was a freakish thing. But it happened. And there's an added risk for an obliteration if he comes down wrong on it as a result.

    I'm most excited by the cap we still have left and the new contracts to trade.

    If we can't seem to get Parker/Collison/KahnPG:

    Ridnour-Douglas
    Walker-Andy
    Gallo-Chandler-Azzy
    Amare-TyrusT
    Randolph-Jordan

    Should be able to sign Ridnour/Tyrus with nw cap assuming FA's dint start holding us hostage because of LeBastard whiff.

    We'd then have Curry and other expirings ready to be dealt.

    Let's pray Walsh spends the rest of the cap wisely (no bidding war for Mike Miller type bull****)

    Already we are better than Chicago. They can't guard our post players. We have too much length for them to deal with. Also we are better than Charlotte and Milwaukee although i really like how both of those teams are constructed.

    I'd say we get 5th seed next year.

    typical die hard Knicks fan. So use to losing and so hungry to win that denial has become part of their lives. I admire the optimism but I just don't believe in fairy tales.

    Another excellent thread. I like what we have. We still need to get some pieces for this year. We have possibly the most athletic front court in the league now. It's a good balance of talents (e.g. scoring, rebounding, shot-blocking, etc.)

    We need a PG. I still have hopes for Rubio, although those hopes diminish every day. But running with him, Randolph and Amare with Gallo on the wing is pretty good.

    We need more shooters. We just do.

    If we get Kevin Pritchard in here with all of our cap space and assets, we can build a contender.

    And honestly, you have to ask yourselves, how much more satisfying will it be to beat the Heat in the Conference Finals, than it would have been to win with Ledouchebag?

    Sky is the limit for our team. We got nice young pieces who have a ton of upside along with cap space and a ton of expiring contracts. I'm all about assembling a Heat killer.
