    I'm also most worried about ramifications to our final FA pickups and strategy in dealing for a 1 with our newfound assets (Parker, KahnPG).

    Let's see what kind of numbers Walsh is co-signing.

    Even that would disgruntle me some. This guy has no business being a big part in or influencing our future...

    Maybe it's not such a bad idea. He played for Roy Williams and North Carolina which play an uptempo style similar to the Knicks. Maybe he can flourish in a system he is familiar with.

    Please read the "Wake up people: Economics of sport" thread before b*tching about this contract offer.

    it will help explain why. It's not about "what he's worth" to you or the league, but to the Knicks. THIS IS THE PRICE WE HAVE TO PAY TO GET HIM (or anyone else).

    Many experts feel he is made for this type of system and will flourish as Brown had the reigns on him

    Me, I'm not sure, but I do like his size (no homo) and he did shoot 47%.

    ....and yes I already know "at one price he's o.k, at another, he's not so much" but the point is..... NEW YORK WILL ALWAYS PAY MORE FOR SUCCESS. Accept it. It's just basic supply and demand.

    U guys amaze me if u think td and luke is better than felton. Does anyone watch games. He is a proven starter and can run a team fulltime. He will command more than luke that's just cuz he's better. Td can not run a team. He is better defensively yes but he is best served as a backup. So I assuming you would pay luke and td more than five mil a year if they were FA. Comeon. R u serious.

    Whats the deal with this. I see this dude thats fast as hell on his highlights. I remember when they one it all in NC. Now I'M just watching highlights. But this dude looks faster then anybody. Thats what I remember about him. He looks real athletic.. can do the fast break thing and dish the ball quick. Now On first glance looks like he has a crossover, that is not a poormans crossover. Don't no how frequently he puts that down like that though. That looks like a high motor.


    So what is it
    Buyer beware?
    Whats his attitude like anyone?
    Don't pay him to much, is a common theme I think I'm hearing

    I'm all for the signing, I just don't want him to chuck like 8 3s a game and not pass the ball, him and TD will be lightning quick!!!

    Get him like a cheap deal, Ridnour at first I thought would be good, but he seems more as a Back-Up.

    None of that. When he came out of college he was suppose to be behind only chris paul and deron. He slightly underachieved but he played in charlotte. Which is where he's from (NC). Always liked his game. Can play d or he wouldn't of played for larry brown. I think he worth 3 yrs 21 mil. He will be better in the open court and yer the crossover is real. Its his trademark. He is very hard to stay in front of. Don't know what all the fus is about. Yeah he's no wade or lebron. But besides deron, paul, nash and rondo. He next level when it comes to running a team.
