    Eli Manning him...keep KT for the begining of the year and slowly increase sweetneys minutes and trade KT at the deadline for a legit center. Don't get me wrong, i love KT but he can bring back alot and we have the PF of the future in sweetney.
    Or if we can...package KT and TT for vinsanity...we have plenty of swingmen as backup just in case his knees fail, adn for vinsanity, i don't mind throwing sweetney into the ring right now for a full 40 minutes.
    Now that i think about it, thats not such a bad deal...KT and TT for Vince. Or even KT and contracts to dallas, walker to toronto and vince to ny...hey it may just work. Or even KT to dallas, TT to toronto, Vince and walker to NY and contracts to both of them...but thats just too good to be true. I can dream can't I?
    so off topic...he can be a starter this season, just not at the beginning of the season

    if kt leaves in the scheme of aquiring dampier or crawford I have full confidence in sweetney. Hes a monster on the offensive boards, hes nice in the low post he can draw a foul well adn still get the bucket i think letting him start would be just helping him reach his potential faster

    There are two problems with Sweetney
    1. Not an great face the basket game
    2. Very Very foul prone

    Finnally, someone with good basketball sense. I say trade Sweetney. He's a backup PF. That's it! I love his game but I'm afraid he won't be able to guard anyone with his weight and slow feet which causes him to pick-up quick files. He has had this problem also in the summer league. I say trade him while his stock is high for Stromile Swift. We need another shot-blocker. That's something else that Sweets isn't any good at. I could live with him starting but I'd rather see him gone for Swift.

    did you forget this kid was a rookie last year. he is still so young we cant expect him to be like ewing or something in his first year. we have to wait to see what he can do

    I don't think he shouldn't start, but I'm not too sure if he should. I think the 4 spot is open all the way until the season starts, either way it'll give the Knicks a lot of depth

    there will be no one else but sweetney to start. baker is to old and we need him on the bench. sweetney is young and ready to prove something.
