That article has to be a joke.
A potential trade for Lee could cause an interesting conundrum for the Jazz, since both he and Paul Millsap play the same position and have comparable statistics. But such a move would undoubtedly prove to be popular with the team's fan base — given Lee's reputation for solid defense and hustle play.
Utah does not want nor need Lee!
But, Lee is a good hustle player, and only a few people outside The Knick fan base knows how bad he is on defense

lol oh godBut such a move would undoubtedly prove to be popular with the team's fan base — given Lee's reputation for solid defense and hustle play.
Damn player-centric usernames straight to hell.
I think it would be a "ok" move. I means come on, get rid of David Lee?????? What's on thier mind to get rid of him? He and Nate are the only two Knicks that stepped way up this past season. They are the reason the Knicks' record improved from the season before. Getting rid of one of their key players is a dumb move.
But it is a "ok" move becuase we get back a good player in return. Carl Boozer is not a player to get. He's strong and a better shooter but we'll see.
My vote is to stay with Lee because you don't wanna lost the fans and Lee is a crowd favorite.
FUTURE BASKETBALL STAR FROM BROOKLYN!!!
BROWNSVILLE AND BED-STUY STAND UP!!!
We all know the sports media is full of 5hit. They claim Lebron is superior to Kobe, when Lebron chokes in almost every playoff season.
They call Gasol Gasoft, when the Lakers simply had poor PG play and Kobe shooting 40% in the '08 finals.
It's just hard to respect anything they have to say.
As for Lee, as someone else stated, he is "one of the worst defensive bigs in the NBA." The guy moves out of the way of penetration, can't seem to provide competent defensive help or rotate to an offensive play on time.
Lee, defensively speaking, is a slimmer, whiter version of Eddy Curry.
On the other hand if he was a beast of a defender he will prolly be more like in the 13-15 mill range thou.
Imagine if his line was somthing like this: 16-18PPG, 12-13RPG, 2SPG, 2APG, 2.5BPG, .560FG%.
Then he will be a whither version of D Howard. LOOOL.
Have any of my fellow Knick fans considered D Lee was instructed to NOT play defense to avoid fouls??? I can't believe his matador style D is his best effort.
Any player that dunks the way he does has good timing and could easily block more shots. When the time is right ( i.e. - playoff contender) I'm sure we'll see a change for the better.
Not possible. Seeing how D'Antoni yells at him everytime it is a close game in the 4th quarter and he blows his assignments.
