I thought superstars were the ones who gave role players the desire to join forces with them! Even with Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire, the Knicks still get no love from the rest of the league when players like Bibby and Murphy don't have them on their preference list.
Not good for the Knicks. Now they have a lot of guys on the team who could consistently hit the 3 ball to surround their stars and a legit pg in Bibby. Great pickup for them.
We should pick up Arroyo when the heat release him.
Keep reading TJ Ford is going to be bought out. What do you think about him?
We need a 20 minutes per game PG who can pass and doesn't need to be shooting the ball to play his game. I don't know who is out there, but Bibby would have been nice.

yes that is a really good one for the heat. they may have just saved their season. he could be the one that keeps them glues together down the stretch of a game where now they have faltered against the elite teams. Darn, they are the team you love to see fail and now they have soddered a spot on the roster that can only help them.
Id rather Jason Kapono if hes bought out. He is a poor mans Gallo. A very poor mans Gallo but D'Ant will love him. And the more Im reading the more I want the D-League Sean Williams. With the veteran presence around him maybe he can turn it around mentally and not be as difficult.
I can completely live with that. I think Kapono would thrive with D'Antoni
MIKE BIBBY: Hard to claim him on waivers b/c he's due 6 million next year. If you claim a player you assume his existing contract. NO WAY we want Bibby taking up 6 mil.
Give Bibby credit. He's giving up 6 mil so he can play in the post season this eyar. ALSO, The Heat have no remaining cap space or salary-cap exceptions, they can offer no more than a pro-rated share of the league minimum... And he wont get a deal worth 6 mil if/when next year begins.
BIBBY knows he can start in MIA. IN NY he would be a backup.
TROY MURPHY: I HAVE NO IDEA why we would let him clear waivers. That would be stupid. Why even risk him going to BOS or MIA? We need rebounding. He can shoot the 3 (MDA loves that). He has 0 coming to him next year. Only costsus money.
