Just heard the news that the lockout is over and a deal has been reached. Very exciting stuff.
Word is the season kicks off on the 25th Dec. Now it's time for the Knicks front office to start calling every FA center available. :-\
We are scheduled to open the season against Celtics. I hope we sign C since we currently have no one on our roster that can be effective at that position.
REJOICE! Now we can finally start talking basketball again!
Happy we are about to get back to business
I woke up, logged onto the board, checked the news and went bananas. Now we can finally talk some real basketball.
PS. almost forgot: THE KNICKS ARE BACK!
Guess if I was simple in the mind...everything would be fine.
So many times throughout this fiasco we've been lead to believe that all signs pointed to compromise.
There are still lesser items to be ironed out: lawsuit dismissals + ratification votes (which will be interesting) etc.
Considering how pedantic both sides have been throughout, I wouldn't be surprised if there were still some pricks - from either side - still keen to piss in everyone's coffee.
Can't help but be pessimistic after this poorly handled, greed fueled debacle.
If it's back to hoops, AWESOME! If not, would anyone be shocked?
Still, best news - true or false - for me in a while.
OK guys let's resume...
1. Free agents based on new cba
*we need a big
*to preserve space for CP3, D12, or DWill
2. Mike Antoni
*Is it do or die?
*Where's the line in the sand (I.e. at least a playoff win or series win)?
3. Mike Woodson and the impact on defense
Btw I think I might just go out and purchase NBA2K or a new Knick hat or something since my personal boycott may be over.
To go through your questions:
1. We need a big, but I'm not getting one this year to lose our chance and CP3 or D12 next year. Obviously I prefer waiting for D12 and just seeing what we have with the guys we drafted and getting a stop-gap C in the meantime.
2. Yes, it's do or die for Mike D'Antoni if we do not host and win a playoff series I think he's out.
3. Remains to be seen.
And I am going to pick up NBA2K as well ending MY personal boycott (I think it's 35 at Best Buy).
Also - can we talk about the new GM. We are so uncertain about this guy, he has not done anything for us yet. I think his actions this offseason will be interesting to watch.

The Free-Agent hype is ready to begin the season
Stand-in GM Grunwald is at the starting-line stretching for a

the Amazing Knicks (by signing two shotblocking bigmen, plus?)
to win 50 games out of a 72 game season.
