Are The Knicks better off for 2011?
I saw this thing on ESPN & Real GM discussing NY and how they may not be ready for LBJ but will target Carmelo and Durant in 2011 and Paul and Williams in 2012.
It made me think : Are the Knicks ready for 2010? My answer was no. I think the Knicks would be better off targeting someone like Bosh or Stoudemire in 2010 and maybe Carmelo in 2011. I think the Knicks are on the upswing and if Gallanari, Lee (who they may resign), Hill, Douglas and Chandler show improvement, The Knicks maybe getting someone in 2010 and 2011
Knicks 2010 = John Wall
I wish...We don't have a 1st rounder in 2010.
2011- Harrison Barnes!!!
Woow I feel Sorry For You Guys......2011 might not go bad if they have a good free agency, but how did utah get the first rounder ?
The Maubury Trade
We traded The Suns are 1st rounder who traded it to Utah
Seems to me like the Knicks would try to get a high pick for 2010 draft because it is going to be so strong. They should just try to build around their young core, keep their good players, try to grab a point guard who can run the system, and hope to see some improvement. If they could snag a prime time player like Wall or a shooting big like Donatas Motiejunas this team could be special by 2012.
WE HAVE NO PICK IN 2010
we have a 2nd round '10 pick?
a 2nd rounder yes. But a 1st rounder? Nope. I want Manny Harris with that 2nd rounder btw.
I ment try to get one as in TRADE!!! Preferably from the Nets or someone who wont win many games.
now i think james will re-sign with the cavs so i really dont see him coming to NY who dont have any superstar players. we should try going 4 joe johnson, dirk ,stoudimire,boozer, or ginobli
Knicks will be pretty good and they will probably buy a late first if they can get a good player. The free agent pool is looking nice with all this talent coming in from drafts. Only a few players can get max deal everyone else is getting crubs. Also Knicks should be okay. People don't understand that this franchise for all their year go through ups and downs and this will be on the up. The Knicks are not the LA Clippers, they are normally good and have some bad times but now they will be back to where they should.
I hope Knicks get Sessions.
Me too. Adding Sessions and resigning Lee could make the Knicks some serious contenders for the 8th spot in the East
Joe Johnson would be nice. He could play the 2 next to Sessions. We have Chandler at the 3. Lee at the 4. A new and improved Darko at the 5. A bench of Hill, Douglas, Galinari and some vets. Knicks may save some money for the following year or else they could have two stars Joe Johnson and someone else.
Yea, Johnson would be a great addition. I'm watching thier Summer League game and they are talking about Adding Sessions.
2010-Joe Johnson and 2011- Carmelo? Whoa
Yall don't want to know my opinion. lol
Dhamp....challege me if you want. I doubt you will
DHAMP been there done that but i will give you a point for the challenge though lol
D-hamp, your annoying man.
I challenge you! Pick any topic...I don't care, lets go man! Anything to shut you up...
Dhamp do you remember when your Denver nuggers were not that good, every team has a turn around, the only team i know in the NBA that has seemed to always suck except for a few times is LA Clippers. Every other team has had peaks and valleys. Bobcats hve not been in the league enough to put them out there. Toronto has been bad and sometimes good. Memphis had like 2 or 3 good season with Hubie Brown running them. GSW has a good season every now and then but were pretty good in the Webber Hardaway days. Knicks are due for a turnaround and the one thing that kept them from it is almost over. They will finally have money. Also Walsh is not making stupid moves like some of his former Gm's.
Dajuan Summers was a 2nd round pick in a weak draft or so they say. I think it was average. If Knicks can get someone of quality in the second round, that would be nice.
Knicksboy don't let DHamp get to you man. He does know a little something about basketball but he also like attention and hating on Knicks gets him attention. I doubt he really cares enough about the Knicks to really have a strong opinion.
He also seems to be scared to go toe to toe with me again lol.
Yea, you prob right.
OK Knicksboy. Let's start small. Tell me what you can Tracy McGrady? Sheltwon, feel free to jump in.
You know I feel Tracy McGrady was overrated. Change the topic
I actually don't know how you feel about him. But I'll go.
Tracy was a junior in highschool and basically no one in the basketball world had heard of him. In one year, he went from obscurity to the next Kobe Bryant, due to his performance at Nike camp in 1997. He was drafted by Toronto as a DEFENSIVE player, but he didn't get a long with his coach, who told him he would last three years in the NBA.
McGrady was often overshawdowed by his teammate and far distant cousin.....Vince Carter. He later signed a big contract with Orlando, where he was supposed to team with Grant Hill, but unforutnately, Hill was hurt year after year. What suprised many people was in Hill's abscene, he began to put up major numbers; at which point he was no longer overated. I could go on, but this was a warm up question to get my juices flowing.
so you know alot about McGrady?
Did you know The Bulls wanted him? A trade to send Pippen to Vancouver never happen because MJ said he would have retired
He signed a offer sheet and was in a sign and trade with Orlando
I didnt see you put that down?
Did you put down he never made it to the 2nd round? Ohhh, thats right.
YAY!!! Dhamp has a man crush on TMAC. BTW, it also shows he knows how to use Wikipedia. This is stupid.
we can go all day....your not smarter than me when it comes to basketball.
None of that stuff is in wikipedia and it's no man crush. I can do this with almost every player in the NBA. I'll beat you at you game Knicksboy. We can strictly discuss your team and how bad they are. Like when Charles Smith missed four layups and he's 6 foot 10 lol! Or how you guys had Charlie Ward as a starting point guard.
FYI JaredPaul. I've never heard of you! ha ha ha hah
I dont think you should have. Outside of here, you probably never will. I dont claim to be anything special. I also dont claim to be better than anyone. That is all you ever do. When you are gone, are you going to be remembered as a cool guy who knew alot about basketball or that douche bag who thought he was better than everyone? Just something to think about...
Umm. Denver has no NBA Championships, never been to the NBA Finals
Traded 3 1st round picks for Kenyon Martin
Drafted Raef LaFrentz over Paul Pierce
2 Playoffs appearance in the 90's
Oh, and BTW, Carmelo to NY in 2011
Didn't the Knicks draft Nene Hilaro and trade him to Denver. Yeah, how'd that work out for the Knicks. ha ha ha ha ha ha
No response DHamp?? Didnt think so...
I didn't know Nene Was a star.....
Deuce....your still crying? It's my summer, I'm not hurting noone, I love Basketball, I wanna be a NBA Front Office head or a Basketball analyst Get off my back and leave me alone! You bug me every time.
Didn't I see you in a commerical. Oh wait..... My wife bought me an engagement ring from Jared's. HA HA HA HA HA
LOL...that was very corny
Dang man. Not only are you "smart" but you are very original. Im impressed with your trash talkin as much as i am your basketball insite.
How's that draft pick from 2008 working? I haven't heard him doing anything lately?
Jared I call it prudence, forsight and valor. See I'm a man of principal and conscience. I have a good vocab also. Ha ha ha ha ha
Dhamp...Jared should throw in the towel
Throw in the towel?? Is this a fight or a conversation??
he's doing fine....recovering from back surgery. gonna rebound well in 2009
Well, I've aired you both out, so I'm gone. So much for the challenge Knicksboy. You sorta ran from me. But maybe next time. I'll holla.
Dhamp....The name you can trust.
Dude, your a bum. I didnt run from you. I gave you my opinion and you ran.
Wow....this guy must have never gotten a reward as a child. He tries to make everything a competition. Definatly the name you can trust.
Sup Dhamp, I am sorry I was out for a moment but you seem to forget that T Mac had a good last year with toronto and was supposed to be like a MJ/ Pippen combo with Vince. Vince wanted to be the top dawg but TMac could have over shadowed him if given equal opportunity. Also you forgot to mentioned that they used him as a point guard in the way of Penny for some games because they saw playmaking ability in him. Early on he started to regret his desison to come out but that later changed when he had some success. Also I think he went to Mt Zion or St Zion. He and Duncan were supposed to rejuvenate the Magics but Duncan stayed with San Antonio though but that deal was close. The went after Hill but Hill was injuried most of the year. T Mac probably would still be in Orlando if not for some new Gm for hockey who screw up and traded him only later to regret it. T Mac against the san Antonio Spurs when they were known for defense scored like 12 or 15 point is like 35 minutes. I forget the amount long time ago i saw the game as it was going on I was blessed to start watching the game just at the end to see this all happen. I missed the first 4 second play though. Dhamp I know a lot about every player and most team because i will say i have not watch a lot of team as they are now so I will not say I know all team but this year I am going to watch every team that I can so that I know what they run and other tidbits. I was going to school originally to be a Kiniesiology major so that I can coach basketball. I take this seriously but i have been slacking as far as I used to be. Hit me up with some more because this if fun. I want to see if you can take me to that level. Also a lot of those high school players were unknown for a while Lebron was unknow until he went at Lenny Cooke and made a name for himself only to banish Lenny from the NBA by making him look ordinary.
Yo sheltwon SDE anyway I told yall im close wit Melo NY is in his sights he also said jordan brand did him dirty wit those dumb ass sneakers he got coming out
What up dhamp whats poppin son
Sheltwon, SDE what up yall.
Say, did yall know Melo dropped 50 on Lebron during his senior year in high school! This may make a good post.
