Mr. Knick's NBA thoughts!

1. What if the Atlanta Hawks move Jamal Crawford and sign....Allen Iverson?

2. What if Sacramento add Carmelo, keep Cousins and Evans and move to Vegas?

3. Detroit-Orlando ( Vince Carter, Marcin Gortat, Daniel Orton and a future 1st rounder (2012) for Richard Hamilton, Austin Daye and Charlie V)

4. I really need to be NY's GM. I would be the most fan friendly GM in the world.

5. As much as I love Miami this season because of the Thrice ( James, Wade, Bosh) BUT don't sleep on Orlando. I love the moves they made ( Duhon, Richardson, Redick) plus Bosh is not gonna stop Howard

6. We hype up Kevin Durant but Derrick Rose has playoff averages of 23-5-7 in his career.

7. The Milwaukee Bucks will REGRET not adding Al Jefferson like I said.

8. With all we know about players, with all the people inside a front office: Why do GM STILL over pay for a player?

9. The NBA needs to expand. I would go to 32 teams with a Vegas, Seattle team. Then either Sacramento should go back to Kansas City

10. There will be a lockout next season. If I'm Stern, I'm getting rid of one thing

Going over the cap- What the sense of having a cap if teams can go over it? I would set the cap at 70 million. I would give all teams over the cap 3 seasons to get under the cap. If you are over the cap. Each year: the team is fined 100,000$ and loss of that season's draft pick

Then Orlando should do it

Then Orlando should do it now! Charlie V is a mismatch guy. Austin Daye is making strides. I wanted NY to take him or Jerebko with the 29th pick in 09. He's should play well next season as a role player.

Now actually after reading

Now actually after reading why would the Bucks go after Big Al when they have Bogut?

I agree and i gave you a point... even if there is no such thing as Super Saiyan 5

I would probably trade Crawford but i dont know if A.I. is the answer to replacing him

SS5 is real!!!! Just never

SS5 is real!!!! Just never got on TV.

Al Jefferson would have been the PF in that offense. I think he they would have been the 3rd best team in the East with a shot to beat Orlando

cap space

I partially agree with the cap space, but I'd say he needs to limit the ammount that you can go over maybe like 5-10 million, bc as we all know david stern isn't the biggest fan of players leaving thru free agency so if u couldn't go over the cap with the bird rights, it would be hard for teams to improve supporting casts bc when the bigger name players on your team are up for a new contract, it would make it even harder for small market teams to keep their players

i welcome negatives, but why?

Idc if ppl disagree with what I said..but what's not right about it? If the cavs didn't have lebrons bird rights they wouldn't have even been close to about to sign him

Boo to the AI to the Hawks

Boo to the AI to the Hawks move, I love Jeff Teague and Iverson would stunt his growth as a player if he were taking minutes from him.

Carmelo in Sacramento would be fun to watch!

I don't think that Orlando

I don't think that Orlando would need to send Detroit a pick as Carter will expire way before Hamilton. Gortat and Orton give Detroit much needed size at PF and C. Big Ben can help develop Orton and Gortat gives them a guy who can see good minutes at C whilst Orton and Monroe develop thus reducing Big Ben's workload.

Orlando get great size at positions two to four and with Howard requiring a double team often then Daye and Charlie V give more mismatch problems and Rashard Lewis can maybe return to his favoured SF role. Hamilton gives Howard another good running mate for 3 years. So I really like this trade probably one of Mr Knicks' best.

Former players will pay fellow players over the odds because they still relate to them and see their point and not the hard facts that professional front office staff may look at.

Another team in Seattle would be nice to see and a Vegas expansion would create a lot of interest and may see some interesting investors. Going to 32 teams would be absorbed quite easily with a 16 team lottery instead of 14 with the play offs remaining in the same format.

I'd like to see progressively heavier luxury taxes for teams way over cap levels so say over $80 million it becomes $2 tax per $1 dollar of salary and maybe higher over $90 million. This enables teams to spend but should stop things like the Knicks $130 pay roll of a few years ago.

If the Hawks traded Crawford

If the Hawks traded Crawford and picked up Allen Iverson thinking he would do anything meaningful in a Hawks uniform, I would not only hate the Hawks, I would claim to be from another state. The part that trips me out is the fact that that move is very realistic knowing the Hawks

Good stuff man

1. What if the Atlanta Hawks move Jamal Crawford and sign....Allen Iverson?
Their smart not to waste money on Crawford, unfortunately they gave JJ a huge max deal which will hurt them few years down the line. Iverson he's not the same player and can he even stay healthy. Also isn't he a 1 on 1 player they have enough of those.

2. What if Sacramento add Carmelo, keep Cousins and Evans and move to Vegas?
The move to Vegas won't happen so quickly

3. Detroit-Orlando ( Vince Carter, Marcin Gortat, Daniel Orton and a future 1st rounder (2012) for Richard Hamilton, Austin Daye and Charlie V)
Charlie V plays lil D, Daye is nothing special, the Magic will improve at SG def. Nice deal for Pistons getting rid of 2 contracts.

4. I really need to be NY's GM. I would be the most fan friendly GM in the world.
Just hire KP, or Nuggets old GM already, Walsh is too old.

5. As much as I love Miami this season because of the Thrice ( James, Wade, Bosh) BUT don't sleep on Orlando. I love the moves they made ( Duhon, Richardson, Redick) plus Bosh is not gonna stop Howard
Howard isn't very good scoring, I"m sure he'll improve but outside of alley opps he's not really polished in the post. Heat have plenty of bodies to throw at him Magloire, Anthony, Big Z, Juwan Howard, Haslem. More importantly Orlando can't guard Wade, Bosh and Lebron. Barnes is gone, Pietrus got lit up in the playoffs by Lebron.

6. We hype up Kevin Durant but Derrick Rose has playoff averages of 23-5-7 in his career.
Great pt, only problem is Rose didn't have that 2nd scorer around him esp. last year now he does in Boozer. He also has a quality shooter in Korver to make the Bulls attack balanced. Durant gets the hype even more now becaz most ppl are annoyed with Lebron actions and him signing with Miami.

7. The Milwaukee Bucks will REGRET not adding Al Jefferson like I said.
Not really the trade for Maggette and adding Gooden will help a lot.

8. With all we know about players, with all the people inside a front office: Why do GM STILL over pay for a player?
Not sure why Joe Johnson, Travis Outlaw, Darko were all signed to big contracts that still leave u scratching your head.

9. The NBA needs to expand. I would go to 32 teams with a Vegas, Seattle team. Then either Sacramento should go back to Kansas City.
No need to expand the league the talent is already spread around also the NBA is claiming big losses by some teams. A new team would just be losing money. Why add more bottom team to the league its taking the Bobcats how long to compete. If teams like Sacramento, New Orleans or Memphis need to move to other markets in a few years I can see that.

10. There will be a lockout next season. If I'm Stern, I'm getting rid of one thing

I think they'll get in at least 50 games like in 99, the owners are asking for way too much. Already in the 90's the rookie contracts was worked out and the age limit set at 19. If teams can't afford to sign guys to big contracts they shouldn't, teams like the Lakers, Knicks, Mavs, Celtics, Magic, Blazers can and will be paying the luxury tax. Their are other teams that can afford it but don't have a payroll that high like the Clippers. Also the long 7 year contracts was removed teams without bird rights can only offer 5 years now. 6 years is the max with sign n trades like what Lebron and Bosh received.

Some overpaid guys expring this year Eddy Curry, Kirilenko, Vujajcic, Nazr Mohammed, Tyson Chandler, Deshawn Stevenson, Kmart, Prince, Gadzuric, Vlad Radmonivic, Battier, Jared Jeffries, Dunleavy, Ford, Tinsley, Marko Jaric, Zack Randolph, Hasheem Thabeet, Troy Murphy, Peja, Songalia, Redd, Collison, Mo Pete, Kristic, Vince Carter, Kapono, Willie Green, JRich, Wesley Mathews, Przbilla, Dalembert, Tony Parker, Reggie Evans, Marcus Banks, C.J. Miles,

Combine that with all the bad contracts that expired this summer and the leagues should be in much better shape.
The league may need to have another exception like they did with the tax rule a few years ago when they allowed teams to cut a player and not have the salary count for luxury taxes.

Going over the cap- What the sense of having a cap if teams can go over it? I would set the cap at 70 million. I would give all teams over the cap 3 seasons to get under the cap. If you are over the cap. Each year: the team is fined 100,000$ and loss of that season's draft pick

100,000 isn't much, Mark Cuban gets that in fines all the time it seems. Loss of a draft pick that doesn't hurt teams like the Lakers, the Knicks rarely have their own pick even. Now teams with a top 5 record won't have to pay guaranteed money to a player for a few years.

This isn't the NFL which has a hard cap and needs signing bonuses allocated over years to cover salaries. They have a different kind of mess with restructuring salaries and players holding out all the time. Darrelle Revis is a great example. GM's and owners should be smarter and realize by now how much they can afford to pay.

1. What if the Atlanta Hawks

1. What if the Atlanta Hawks move Jamal Crawford and sign....Allen Iverson?

They should move him because with Joe Johnson and the rest of the swingman and with Horford playing the 4 he really will not get that many minutes and Crawford should start. I would not mind seeing him come back to the Knicks for some exspirings because people forget he was really good in Mike D's system and now he had a taste of the playoffs and being off the bench.

2. What if Sacramento add Carmelo, keep Cousins and Evans and move to Vegas?
This will never happen because Melo does not seem to want to sign an extension there and if he does no way Denver is dumb enough to make this trade without Evans or Cousins.
3. Detroit-Orlando ( Vince Carter, Marcin Gortat, Daniel Orton and a future 1st rounder (2012) for Richard Hamilton, Austin Daye and Charlie V) Interesting move because it makes Orlando better now with some future help in Austin Daye. This could also open up a Brandon Bass move to get another 5 man.

4. I really need to be NY's GM. I would be the most fan friendly GM in the world.

I would make a better NY GM than you maybe but right now if they can get Melo and not sacrifice too much the GM now is doing pretty good. Just kidding about the better GM than you because I don't how good you GM skills are.

5. As much as I love Miami this season because of the Thrice ( James, Wade, Bosh) BUT don't sleep on Orlando. I love the moves they made ( Duhon, Richardson, Redick) plus Bosh is not gonna stop Howard

Bosh will not be guarding Howard and Orlando could be better but they are a few moves away from me being 100 percent sure

6. We hype up Kevin Durant but Derrick Rose has playoff averages of 23-5-7 in his career.

There is a reason we hype up Durant and also it would appear that Westbrook is outplaying Rose in World Tourney. I have not watched all the game though but Westbrook is looking like a true point

7. The Milwaukee Bucks will REGRET not adding Al Jefferson like I said.

They got Drew Gooden for cheaper and they have enough guys that having a guy who can just play his role is better than one that will dominate the ball but is somewhat better Gooden and that rookie will be better for the Bucks

8. With all we know about players, with all the people inside a front office: Why do GM STILL over pay for a player? Some Gm's are not really good and get pick on because they know people. Think about it should David Kahn be a GM. Seriously most of us could do a better job.

9. The NBA needs to expand. I would go to 32 teams with a Vegas, Seattle team. Then either Sacramento should go back to Kansas City
This could happen when the economy gets better but I think Stern is set on not going to Vegas but could change his mind
10. There will be a lockout next season. If I'm Stern, I'm getting rid of one thing

Going over the cap- What the sense of having a cap if teams can go over it? I would set the cap at 70 million. I would give all teams over the cap 3 seasons to get under the cap. If you are over the cap. Each year: the team is fined 100,000$ and loss of that season's draft pick

A hard cap would not be a good idea and the only thing that needs to be change is the percentage that players and owners get. It would appear that owners want more of the percent and if it avoids a lock out players need to do it but with if the money coming in is more than they should get the current percentage or increase it some that way if players are helping the league make more money they should be rewarded but if not then owner should get money so that they can at least make ends meet or a decent profit.

so with this trade the depth

so with this trade the depth chart would be

Stuckey - Bynum - White
Carter - Gordon - White
Prince - Summers - Jerebko
Jerebko - Monroe - Maxiell / Wilcox
Gortat - Wallace - Orton

I see Monroe eventually starting then Jerebko being a 6th man at the Small Forward and Power Forward

i see with all this cap space in free agency... watch for a ton of money thrown at Tyson Chandler, Aaron Brooks (Restricted), Al Horford (Restricted), and Kendrick Perkins by Joey D

Of course A.I is always the

Of course A.I is always the ``Answer`` and Al Jefferson and Bogut would not work out if Al Jefferson and Kevin Love didnt workout because they would clog the lane
