    Will Lee, Robinson extend with "dysfunctional" Knicks?
    Nate Robinson

    As third-year players, New York Knicks David Lee and Nate Robinson are eligible to sign lucrative contract extensions this summer. When that time comes, they will have to weigh the benefits of financial security against the drawbacks of playing for the league's most dysfunctional franchise.

    In three years with the Knicks, Robinson and Lee have endured the Larry Brown-Stephon Marbury feud, the Brown-Isiah Thomas feud and the Thomas-Marbury feud. They have played for two coaches, and could see a third by next fall. They have lost twice as many games as they have won.

    Lee and Robinson say it is too soon to ponder their decision. They acknowledge that dollar figures will not be the only issue to consider. But for now, they are projecting a rosy, politically correct view.

    "Put it this way," Lee said. "I love New York, I love playing in New York, love everything about New York. I wish we could win more." Channeling Frank Sinatra, he added, "If I could choose to make it anywhere, it'd be in New York, to be a part of the team that turns it around."

    When these guys become free agents at the end of the year, will they resign with the knicks or go to a better team?

    They'll go where the money is.

    If we draft a Derick Rose, Jared Bayless, or Augustine is Nate really a necessity?

    You and I all know that all three players got their agents working overtime to get their ass the hell out of New York.

    Understand the Knicks situation the Portland Players wanted Zach out of Portland. The Chicago Players wanted Crawford out of Chicago. The Phoenix Players wanted Marbury & Q.Richardson out of Phoenix.

    I'm sure that Lee, Balkman, and Nate are tired of putting up with those guys so call leadership on the Knicks which does not make any of their talents better but more on the down side.
