I want us to win as much as anyone.
Gotta say though, this is an equivalent to magic beans.
to get a ring next year, i have a sure fire player, and a gamble player.
Melo & Oden
Melo trade - Gallo, (douglas for a first rounder), azubuike expiring contract & williams for melo.
Oden trade - curry's contract for oden straight up.
i dont know, oden isnt giving up on basketball....im not givin up on him, i always liked greg. he was drafted before durant....so people saw it in him.
imagine a healthy oden and amare......people doubted amare too...
Oden ???? why would we take a chance. Knicks are in such a good position with Talent and Salary Flexibility we no longer need to roll the dice Isiah style.
I wish Dolan the MORON would give Walsh his contract extension, In 2 years this guy has made us playoff contenders and heading into 2012 with the ability to sign a major star or 2 solid players and again in 2013.
i have seen a few poster talk about marcus camby....we all know how he was with injury. why not take a chance on oden? its not like he's gonna get a big contract, he's gonna have to earn it. Low risk, High reward
I wonder... if given the option.... Say we trade Gallo-Randolph for Melo.... If MEMPHIS wanted to sign and swap Gasol for CHandler... what to do?
oden had microfracture surgery on both knees. its still possible for him to come back. Oden is a new york native, melo is a new york native.....bring the guys back home.
Just better options out there (albeit more expensive). Perkins, Baby Davis, Tyson Chandler, Marc Gasol. Then we have to look at the trade market.
PLUS, with Oden's offense... D'ant will never play him.
This is why, to me, Marc Gasol is the perfect fit.
What part of run-and-gun does Oden fit in?
in the playoffs.....thats where it all counts
Yo Im over in Section 420 Whats up Ppl......
Lets Go Knicks !
did you not see the quotation marks on the words 'injury prone'? (doing my peace signs bendin em twice)
my point was, we took a risk on a player that was 'said' to be injury prone
i can find the thread if you need a bump.
amare's pic is my avatar guy, im an amare fan from phx days.....you cant tell me anything about stat that i dont already know.
I've spoken with a few friends about Oden. Look, this guy was the #1 overall pick not long ago. He has been effective when healthy, albeit he is rarely healthy, and might come very cheap (maybe a little more expensive than Mozgov)...he might be good to look at...I wouldn't break the bank on the guy. But I would be okay with seeing what he would cost and considering it.
To be called a true contender you have to have more than one clutch go to player. With our current roster...if Stat gets hurt who will pick up the slack and take us to or thru the playoffs? hmmm.
Lets not forget that we are just a team filled with trade bait and role players. The approaching trade deadline will prove that. We are just trying to see who will stay/ who fits.
