Start fresh under new management! We don't need any more unproven veterans! Go for youth!
To be real, keep David Lee for now until the right deal comes at us. Lee could be a monster in D'Antoni's system
something's maybe brewing - Donnie was just supposed to do an 11am interview with ESPN but he cancelled it cause something came up....

Yo, just to drop some more knowledge.
Gallinari will play PF similar to how Rashard Lewis plays PF on the perimeter or Boris Diaw.
We'll have a center in the paint and 4 players out, Gallinari will spread the floor, assist, and create. David Lee would be a good center in a running team with his rebounding ability and outlet passing.
We could do this.
Penetrator and Distributor - Marbury(6"2)
Scoring Wing Player - Chandler(6"8)
Rebounding/Defensive Forward - Balkman(6"8
Pointfoward - Gallinari(6"10)
Run and Gun Center - Lee(6"9)
Thats an average sized line up, very similar to Phoneix, where Balkman would play like Marion without a jumpshot, Gallinari will play like Diaw with a jumpshot, Lee will play like a Missouri version of Amare, Chandler can hit a shot and is athlete...he'll do his own style. Marbury can penetrate and keep his dribble as good as Nash or anyone in the NBA, so he'll be good at PG.
I would ride out with that line, let go of Curry, Randolph and Crawford and build for the future.
-In 2009, we could draft a PG or center, to move Lee back to PF and Gallinari back to SF, where Balkman can come off the bench and provide energy
man i really gotta question ya for being knick fans, to say u want david lee gone and Gallinari startin PF shows alot about ya, david lee is probably the only knick that could fit in da 90's knicks, david lee plays hard every minute and ya talkin about replacing em wit a player we barely kno and most likely soft compared to david lee...dont get me wrong, david lee can go wit the right deal but to replace david lee in da depth chart wit Gallinari, im not up for dat
So...we fight all year to keep this guy, we don't trade him in any of the big deals that had him as a focal point, to draft some guy from Italy that no one on this board has ever seen play live so we can trade D.Lee? I think maybe we should see this guy play, you know, at least one second of NBA ball before we decide we need to ship the brightest part of our team out of NY.
metrocard i like your line up. i have a feeling chandler will have a very good season under mike. Lee at center works aswell. Although undersized he can rebound like a bigger man. bringing nate on from the bench will add that extra spark and his energy, speed and athletisim will be a big factor. I know we always say this but maybe this is the year we start to get better.
Will we ever win a championship again? Id like to think so!
