The Knicksonline community appears to have entered a point of no return. This forum is flooded with ridiculous trade ideas, demagogy (to the point where we are calling for everyone's head), and a need to believe in messiahs who have not delivered (Shumpert).
In recent posts I've read about the need to bring in David Lee in place of Stoudamire (?!?)
Jrue Holiday and Nene in place of Anthony
and how Galinari was right about the Knicks not requiring the Anthony trade.
Here's what I think.
The Knicks don't need to trade Stoudamire. They don't require Dwight Howard either. Galinari is ****, and Anthony should stay. What the Knicks need more than anything is a PG and good coaching. I don't trust D'Antoni to deliver on the latter but once Davis returns, the former should be sorted. They have a good team. I trust Chandler on defence more than I would Howard. The hardest part will be for this team to gel. You need to give it 10 more games. If nothing has changed by then I think we have every right to start demanding for heads to roll. Until then I think this forum has had enough of trade ideas and scapegoating.
This season was always going to be a peculiar one. Miami and Boston have teams that have been playing together for over a season and yet they have failed to perform thus far. Patience at the moment is the best we can offer the team. We'll know soon enough who has been right about the Knicks all along.
Finally; Shumpert can turn out to be a really good player. Until he does, this IMAX crap needs to stop.
