Exactly.Irritating.* Goddammit.* I just got through with the last superstar foot-kissing fest.
Listen, I understand Chris Paul is a great player and that he's disappointed with the direction the Hornets have gone in over the past few years.*But I just don't want to take the bait here.
Why not, you say.* Let me lay it out for ya.
1. Chris Paul is under contract through 2012.* He signed it.* No one held a gun to his head.* Now, he looks at LeBron going to make beautiful music with a couple of other all stars.* And he's like 'Waaaaaahh, trade me or else!'
Or else what?* You're going to stomp up and down?* Play like sh!t on purpose?* Call your teammates scrubs?* Oh, you've already done that, but rather than maning up and doing it out in the open, you sent the message out through your entourage.* Nice.
You took a risk and signed a big deal for guaranteed millions.* You don't like what the Hornets management has done.* Well, you ****ed up, kid.* Make the best of it.* Don't expect me to do rolling out a red carpet for you and trading all my good young players and sucking up to you with LeBronesque attention.
2. Raymond Felton is a pretty good point guard.* Lets see what he can do before we relegate him to a backup behind Mr. Whiny.* In fact, lets see what all these guys can do before we go salivating over some other guy.* I think it sends the wrong message - to our guys.* And to the kids.* What about the kids?
3. I'm sorry, I just don't buy this so-called conventional wisdom that the only way to win a title is to get some 'big 3' together.* In fact, it makes me sick to think about it.* Teams win.* That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
I know that in general, if you have a chance to get a transcendant player like Chris Paul, you've got to lose the attachment you might have to guys on your team that maybe aren't quite as good.* But right now?* This is really bad timing.* Chris Paul thinks he's going to be traded by the beginning of the season?* So did Carlos Boozer last year.* Just sayin'.* I hope New Orleans tells him to **** off.* I want to see what Felton and the Knicks can do.* I say we wait.
We are the New York Knicks we dont need to kisss nobodys assess.
And We need to let Chris Paul, LBJ, and everyone that this is NY. They have to come chasing us..
