    Default get back Earl Barron

    Suns released him, not sure why Knicks got rid of him in first place.

    His shooting percentage on the Suns.... 0.235
    His career? 0.372

    Lets wake up...
    My man Smac said it best;

    Many teams need hustle and rebounding

    He played well for us in 7 total games

    7

    Hes about to be 30 years old and his NBA career is highlighted by a 7 game stretch with us during a period when we were not even competing for anything other than a lower draft pick to give to Utah

    Can we stop overrating this bum like hes going to help much?

    This guy has been in and out of the NBA for years now, cant stick with nobody. Its time we look elsewhere and give somebody else a shot. I much rather have Mozgov out there developing than this dude.

    ^^ agree. Moz is our man unless traded for a pick.

    But I don't see why we don't sign The Barron on the cheap and try to re-create that 7game magic.

    Why Barron when Mozgov is better, younger, etc.

    Earl Barron had a good stretch of 7 games and all of a sudden everyone was overrating him as being a solid starting center, myself included.

    Big mistake, I think.

    Just a question. I understand that Earl only played good in 7 games, keep this in mind he was playing with David Lee while he was able to get those board numbers.

    Also how would adding somone that is not going to cost us anything against the cap next year going to hurt us. Has Moz or Ronny put up those type of numbers for us at any point this year. I say sign him and give us some more depth so Amare wont get burnt out by March.

    I have to disagree with u
    In the 7 games with the Knicks, it was not about Barron's scoring or
    rebounding it was about his movement/ position/ and high IQ as a tandem-
    bigman in the frontcourt on both sides of the court. Earl Barron presence on
    court in all 7 games took a large load of pressure off of his 4 teammates, to
    change the entire outlook of the Knick team by allowing David Lee to strong-
    arm at the PF, plus allowing Gallo to put all his attention to blossom at the SF.
    Recall.... Chandler & Harrington were out with injuries.

    The 30 year old Earl Barron has alot of experience at performing at the
    center position in the NBA, which is more than anyone can mention about
    Mozgov, Randolph, Turiaf, and Dantoni's bigman teaching.
    u dont have to teach Earl Barron how to position himself on offense/defense
    as a NBA "center", his movements on court will become a big asset
    when tandem with Amare, plus help bigtime in the developement of
    Mozgov & Randolph.

    Earl Barron is the center u would put in a lineup with any of the top-10 PF
    in the NBA to do all the dirty work for 18 to 24 mpg.

    and here I was thinking that theres an Earl Barron post with no Kiyaman!!!

    Like you said, he's 30 years old and has had a great 7 game stretch for us. 7 meaningless games where you're feeling good and hot and the game is coming naturally. You really haven't seen the practices or how he performs on a regular basis. There are a lot of mediocre players who put up big numbers on meaningless games towards the end of the season. Theres no pressure anymore and they want to show they can get a contract for next season.

    Lets face the facts though, he's getting old... he shoots a career low percentage especially for a big man, and nobody else in the league wants him! Even Orlando who desperately needs a big man to backup Howard said they weren't going to pick him up. We need to develop a young big or trade for one.

    Right now I'd say develop Mosgov over Barron. Guy wasn't even a big minute player in Europe.... you can't expect him to learn all the nuances of an NBA game in less than half a season. At the very least, he'll be better trade bait. I can't justify getting Barron for the very small chance he'll improve the team slightly and only for short term gain.

    Hey now, Channing strokes it from the three like a 15yr old who cracked the code for the Playboy Channel.

    A bit spazzy, but the furious frequency gets the job done.

    Frye plus like Glen Davis or Perkins...or Varajejo...Would actually be a perfect tandem of bigs to log time at the 4/5 behind Amare and our small rotation of Chandler/gallo at pf.

    If there is any big man that I want the Knicks to acquire before the trade deadline it has to be Anderson Varejao.I'm not sure what the Knicks would have to give up in order to acquire him but you add him to a front court that has Turiaf, Mosgov and Stoudemire and the Knicks could be able to beat teams like the Celtics and Magic.I'd rather the Knicks trade for him than for Iguodala.
