COMMIN SOON TO MSG..... DON'T SPECULATE...BANK IT BY OR BEFORE TRADE DEADLINE! THANK ISIAH THOMAS!
After the lockout of last year, teams were scrambling to put together a club to win the chip. The KNICKS were included despite all feelings of NUMB.
Mike Dantoni was overwhelmed and emphatic about CP3 coming to NY for Amare, Landry Fields,Toney Douglas and the 48TH pick in this years draft!
A MOLE ( HERB WILLIAMS IS THE BEST GUESS) in the Knick organisation informed the LAKERS of such.. which led them to bleed the bank with Gasol and Odom/Bynum offers for CP3...because the Lakers were trying to STOP MIAMI II assembling before their very eyes in the City of NEW YORK!
DAVID STERN COULD NOT LET CP3 COME TO NEW YORK AFTER SUCH AN UNPRESEIDENT BLOCK OF THE LAKER TRADE.
STERN HAD TO CARRY THE CROSS FOR SMALL MARKET TEAMS. WHICH...... left the KNICKS with inside info that TYSON CHANDLER
WOULD BE THE LAMB FOR CP3. WHICH THE KNICKS REACTED TO WITH LIGHTING QUICK TRANSACTIONS TO SECURE CHANDLER.
CP3 has quoted in the past he wanted to play with TYSON CHANDLER AGAIN. LET'S forget that Carmelo Anthony is his best friend in the world.
His best BEST MAN AT HIS WEDDING TO LALA.
JEREMY LIN??? That is as asinine as it comes. this guy is D-League 100% and will never have the perfect storm that produced LINSANITY>
Stay tuned as Leon Rose, ^^^^^^^^ and ********** keeps us updated.
CP3 to a friend ( SOURCE) after emulsion this year...... I'd rather fall on my Sword than stay here another year!
LOOK FOR AMARE AND THE SAME CAST IN a trade for CP3 coming soon to a Garden near YOU!
RIP ORLANDO WOOLRIDGE AT THE YOUNG AGE OF 52.
"It will be, in the eyes of NBA commissioner David Stern, the perfect blend of competition, hatred, geography and, hopefully, TV ratings.
It will be a real rivalry, the Brooklyn Nets versus the New York Knicks.
“I am hoping, for more sparks, a few verbal, some build up,” Stern said before the NBA lottery in Midtown Wednesday night. “We are going to have two spectacular new buildings in New York City and we are going
to have two very aggressively managed teams.”
Misdirection?Fake, Art of War?
"Stern also said he likes the NBA’s chances in the Jeremy Lin–Steve Novak arbitration hearing June 13.
“We believe that the position that we are espousing here is the one that the contract says is the one and that the arbitrator will confirm,” Stern said.
The Players Association says players like Lin and Novak who were claimed off waivers should retain their Bird rights, which allows teams to exceed the salary cap to re-sign their own players. The league contends that move applies only to players who are traded. The Knicks want an arbitration win in order to maintain their mid-level exception and sign another free agent while keeping both Lin and Novak."
The arbitration hearing to restore Larry Bird rights to Knicks free agents Jeremy Lin and Steve Novak will be staged June 13, according to an NBA source. It is a very important date for the Knicks’ free-agent future as a victory would be a major coup.
If the Players Association wins the appeal, the Knicks will be allowed to re-sign Lin and Novak without using their $5 million mid-level exception. That would nearly assure the Knicks of being able to bring back Novak. A victory would also give the Knicks a chance to not only re-sign Lin but have the mid-level exception available to sign another noted free agent — perhaps even Steve Nash.
This is our draft in a (nut)shell.Do we keep Novak and keep the scratch we need to pay Nash?Can we do better in the draft?HELL TO THE BELL NO!!!Nash is our only chance for relevance next season, unless there is a sucka out there who wants to buy the Brooklyn Bridge and Amare's contract.Love Amare, but bad, bad contract.Think for a moment.Who can make Amar relevant , like he was in Phonyx?Who can hit Melo for the spot up?Who can make Field's offense Havlicek-like?Who can get Lin off training wheels?Who can send a character reference letter to the Miami judge that might be read for JR?Who can hit Tyson in the hands for a dunk?Who can keep a smile on Woody's face besides...I ain't going there.Sure Nash's old, but when has years or beers ever stopped Jimmy D?And how much for how long are we talking here?% mill for two yrs?Common, chump change for a roll of the dice.The ball is in Stern's court.That's better than Jimmy with a Nerf.LGK
"Former Knicks coach and president Isiah Thomas told ESPN Chicago he is looking for a college coaching or NBA GM/coaching job."
Right, like he did that well at Florida Int.Joe Dumars won't hire him, but Jimmy Rainman Dolan will, go figure?
Considering Dragic is a free agent, this post does not violate Steady's stance on covetousness and the KFL Commandment: Thy shall not covet OTP or thy neighbors' jump off or side piece.
Do any of you Bloggas think that Houston breaks off G-DoubleIT by either passing up on GoranD or passing on Kyle Lowry? Moxey did fleece Old Ironside during that salary dump and that's why that Tracy McGrady gift still keeps on giving.
Appreciable in Dragic's game is that he finishes at the basket on his feet instead of rumbling and tumbling down the lane. (Ask DRose about that feeling and see how long a body can take the constant pounding.) Plus, you rarely see him out of position when he makes a pass (unless he's simply abusing his defender). Surely Goran should love playing out of the obscurity that is Houston (a great big city but not NYC). But would he take a haircut to make the hajj to Mecca? More important element about Dragic is his durability because of his youth. His body is NBA young because of the apprentice years behind Nash in Phoenix. The only important question is "can he be a COP" on the floor with MeloStatChan?
In terms of what talent G-DoubleIT brings in, one must question this 3-year or bust mentality. With no draft picks and franchise type players getting locked in for years beyond your cap, how do you fill behind MeloStatChan? There's only one Black Mamba ( a stud you can build a team around by adding pieces) and he's not with CAA. Please don't sell us the secret deal IT made with Leon to flip LBJ north after flaming out in the Heat. Oops, I forgot IT worked once before and IT might work again.
Oh what a beautiful day our God Jehovah hath made.
You had Steady until the Haterade spilled on the fine Asían LINen. Karma is ABS. We know one Blogga will disavow his love for our side if your purported package holds holes and all. First you will need to get a third. The Blake show is established in Staples and Stats would not fit there so who chomps on his uninsurable papers? Sadly Woody found no use for ToneyD opting for an aging and clipboard holding Mike Bibby. That DWade dis during the playoffs was telling and embarassing. No player on my team should ever be disregarded or relegated as hé was. As a GM i would Bird such a player and his rights. Bottom line from this scénario is dealing with the fallout from moving Amare. It is a business and these things happen. But must they? Is there another way to do IT? Why not look at what a Felton Lin Odom Smith Novak and Fisher can mean for our side? Look at the OKC model of team building. It is less expensive and the burden falls on talent evaluators. But if you have a coach who feels like rookies are garbage for sifting through to be revealed only in a perfect storm scénario then you are doomed to overpay on a rent that is already too damn high. Steady. Period. NYKFL
@smooth_BH Prolly LIN , Landry and STAT.
@Tman The difference T-man is Joe D does not have the same loot and creds as Jim D. The latter is signing checks while the former is writing them.
One can argue that the failure at FIU is relate to the fact that former FIU HC had his head and attention more on the BIG game rather than the college game. Steady speculating that the college tour has been a decoy to get insights and intel on the next draft class. Meanwhile IT developed treasure trove on the NBA landscape. He is overflowing with due diligence. Until IT becomes official Jimmy D will be sipping from that hose. No homo but metro.
The pressure is on the Clips... CP3 is a Unrestricted free agent after next season and you know he wants to play with MELO.
@Peaceman I'd do it, doubt the Clippers would when they already have an Amare clone in BG. Sterling would let CP3 walk before picking up Amare's deal.
