STUPID Ridiculous Foolish trade of the 2013 offseason ....
Grunwald = Isiah idiotic-mess
Copeland is twice the better player of a 14/5 C-Bargani .... Do the B-Ball math?
Would u give up a future 1st and 2nd rounder just for Copeland?
Bargani's all-around performance is barely above Novak's performance, which would've been a equal trade when comparing performance. Let Toronto eat their own over-paid contract to Bargani.
A backup (20 minute) old-head Camby is 10 times better than Bargani.
This type of trade shouldve been for Portland LaMarcus Aldrigde or Utah Milsap
Knicks talking about limiting Stat to 20 mpg and not playing on back to backs for the duration of his career. If true you can see why Grunny pulled the trigger on this deal in light of this and all the question marks about many of the players from last year coming back.
Less risk playing him 20 min than 30+ every night. I don't agree with back to backs tho, he isnt 50 years old.

Two more years and the Knicks should go all in and using his expiring (alongside Tyson's and bargnani) make a team of lebron killers around Melo and win some chips.
Anyhow its Dolan's money....
When Miami signed Lebron and Bosh players knew they had to link up to win and frankly David Lee was not a player by himself that was gonna attract a lot of big named players although he is proving to be the better value than Stat! But Lee was an Isiah player and The Knicks needed a makeover
Stat's MVP like showing his first year in NY made players want to come here...just him signing with us made Melo want to be here and the two of them put NY back on the map
Stat ushered in a new regime that took The Knicks from being a joke back to respectability and now trying to build a champion and none of this occurs if we sign Lee Boozer or even Bosh. Stat's boldness and leadership stimulated our fan base. Its hard to imagine now us not being on nationally televised games but before Stat we got one a year (I think that's an NBA mandate) to being on a couple times a week!
Its hard to say that one season was worth 100 million, yet in a lot of ways it was because the impact it had on the culture
