Oh I understand it just fine. You watched Camby, AI and Arenas for the last number of years and became fans of them while the knicks were in the cellar. Now you think they still have value and are better then guys like Felton. I believe that Arenas will be back in the league and will make an impact, I don't think that AI will ever return to form and his inability to accept a backup role means he's not going to be effective on any team in the league. Camby has value but for how long?
Our team now represents youth, energy, and potential. Not to mention Amar'e with a ton of experience in the NBA since HIGH SCHOOL and most of it with Mike D'antoni. We have cap space, reasonable contracts, trade assets and players that will fill holes and needs in our line up.
You are what people have come to expect from knicks fans. People who want a champ and they want them to be champs RIGHT NOW. Unfortunately, knicks succumbed to that whim for the last 10 years, trying to do the "quick fix" and further digging themselves into a hole with bad long term contracts.
Donnie came to us with a 4 year plan. It was two years of blowing up the team and then 1 year with talent, make it to the playoffs. 2nd year, contending for a chip. So far I think we are still on track with that time line...
I wasn't saying your opinions of the team were trolling. I'm saying that you are doing more insulting and name calling then is nessicary and interspersed in your **** stirring posts are ideas like "we should sign AI, Camby and Arenas". That's not really insightful. It's something that Issiah would of done...
I appreciate that you are back to watching the knicks now that they will be winning... that's great. But it really is the definition of fairweather fan.... I'm sure the Chicago Blackhawks have to deal with a lot of them after going 62 seasons without a stanley cup and finally winning. I expect it'll be even more so with the Knicks after this season.
As for Amar'e's knees... did you see any PHX games last season? The guy has only gotten stronger and more talented since the procedures. He;s proven, young and talented. We'll see on the other side of this season who is right. but i'm putting my chips in with the Knicks and our chances of the playoffs and beyond.
