    Default Walker vs Webber, NY's two leading candidates for PF

    Antoine Walker or Chris Webber? It looks like Isiah Thomas is trying to find the better deal, to pick up one of these guys. I'm curious to see who you guys prefer. Most likely Kurt Thomas and one other player on the Knicks will be involved in the trade, if it goes through. This was mentioned most recently at the end of the article about Ewing, possibly taking a job with the Knicks.

    I am all for Webber coming even with his knee problems. He averaged almost 20 points even with being 80%. I think after a long summer he would be ready to play and has shown interest in playing in new york. Also sacremento needs to trade him now since his stock is up.

    i dont like either of em, but if we're pickin between the two, then definetly C-webb....even though antoine walker hasn't been injured, c-webb is more a star than walker will ever be.

    walker can't play D, something we DEF need in the front court

    probably Webber, although he is getting pretty old and banged up..

    C-Webb one of my all-time favorite players. but I think he's done. his knees are gone. We can't have two maybes on the team (C-Webb/Houston).

    I disagree Webber averaged over 20 points wiht a bum knee and has mentioned that he will be ready. Also he played in the Western Conference, if he came to the knicks and was 80% he could easily average 20-23 and 12-14

    I agree along the lines of what kevin just mentioned. Webber would probably have better numbers in the East, even if he's not quite 100 percent. Especially now, with another bigman like TMac headed out west. I think Webber would probably fit the Knicks better than Walker. Isiah seems to be more interested in Walker from what I've read in the papers. Hopefully if he's determined to land one of these two players, he changes his mind.
