    Frank will only be good if he drives like he used to.

    Yea Sweetney is the future of this team, even though I love FW I think if we can get a good player by packaging him then do it. But if Frank stays I would love to see him take some of houstons minutes if hes not healthy. Sweetney should be starting next year unless Shareef or another big name takes that spot.

    Thank you, CommonSense. You guys thought Charlie Ward would become a great PG. I agree Sweetney would be great. But at that age and his weight, you can't rely on him to be your guy for the next 10 years. But he does have the skills. Frank is a backup PG at best. With Crawford and Swift you get potential all stars. Marbury will make these guys optimize their ability with his court leadership. That's the key. These guys would fit alongside Marbury. Frank would be on the bench and Sweetney to me is very good and can be a star in this league. But he lacks the work ethic in the off seasons.

    I'm sure that the Knicks are working on Sweetney this offseason, to bring him down in weight a bit. I love this guy's game, if he could become more athletic, he would be an animal in the paint and perimeter. I'm confident that the Knicks coaching staff has that in mind and will put him on a weightlifting program over the summer, they'd be stupid not to.

    I don't think the Knicks should trade Frank Williams or Sweetney, but if NY could only keep one of them, I'd hold on to Sweets, he has better potential. Lets say that Frank Williams gets traded with one or two others Knicks for Crawford and/or Swift. I wouldn't think twice about it. I happen to like Crawford alot, and think he has the best attributes, that would compliment Marbury. Swift is also a good compliment to Marbury. Bottom line is the Knicks shouldn't consider getting rid of Sweetney, no way, I would unload Tim Thomas (not that I want to see him get traded) before I would let this guy go.

    No team should need to tell any of their players to work-off weight in their off season. And definately not at this stage of someone career. Sweetney reminds me of Shawn Kemp. I love them both but their work ethic sucks. We can't babysit Sweetney. We need to trade him while he still has value.

    Of course they should tell a player to lose weight, or to condition themselves. And if not at this stage of his career, then when? Sweetney is young, now's the time to build a good work ethic, so that when he is older, he won't get injured as easily. Look at Houston, the guy is in shape, he got injured, could you imagine if he was out of shape? Houston would have suffered from injuries earlier in his career and more often. If coaching staffs around the NBA didn't stay on top of players' conditioning, some of the players would look like Charles Barkley. Bottom line, if Sweetney was in top form, he would be able to showcase his talent in a way no one could have predicted. He should not be involved in a trade for Crawford or Swift. I'd like for the Knicks to get them (Crawford and Swift), but not at the cost of losing Sweetney.
