Because Eric Dampier is terrible.
Given how OBVIOUS it is that Turiaf is a difference-maker for this team, and how his energy-presence s almost impossible to make up for when he's not playing....
You would think the role he serves, rebounding and interior defense, would WAKE PEOPLE UP. So, instead of having Rautins, Mason, Williams on the team, wouldn't it be wise to get another BIG in here to supplant Turiaf at times, and fill-in when he's not playing.
E-Dampier anyone? He would mean more wins than Roger freaking Mason.
Knicks could use another rebounding, defensive-minded interior BIG on the roster. The impact Turiaf has further demonstrates that need.
No use having Rautins-Mason-Williams taking up space. Especially now with Azu and Curry close to returning.
Dampier might suck but he's better than Mozgov. He's useful.
I really hate Dampier.. Even knowing we need another bg who can rebound.. He sucks so much..
Dampier isn't the man we need. he'll ask for too much money and isn't good enough anymore to be effective. we'd be better off scouring D-leaguers and prospects, much like how we brought in Barron last year.
Mozgov is pretty raw and needs more time to get into the NBA game. Giving turiaf a decent backup is important for our depth. More then a mason jr/rautins bench can provide.
Ha mafra you got a great sense of humor bro. Keep it up.
tbh, I'll take Mutumbo (again) over Dampier. All the trade bait we have on our team should go to getting Mello.
This horrible contract that Dampier is just finishing playing out was nearly on our payroll if Isiah had his way!
That would be like The Thunder (formely The Sonics) bringing in Jerome James!
If you dodge a bullet once why stand in front of the gun again!
Suns picked up Barron since Robin Lopez got injured
here we are in the 3rd year of the walsh/NO-D 'antoni era , and we are talking about bringing in dampier.... not much of an improvement from the days of the mormon and moron era's...
