"Yahoo! Sports reported Thursday Dolan appears worried about giving up too much to the Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri, who netted a lot of pawns in the Carmelo Anthony deal in 2011 when he worked for Denver."
WhoDFycke is the GM of these here Knicks?According to this article we don't have one because he is never named by title or Sir-name.Dolan has come out of the closet.He's making deals based on his extensive knowledge of NBA f-ups (See ESPN article for a brief summary).Ike could actually be the voice of reason here unless the endgame is for the Knix to implode so badly a certain Knight in BullShinning armor is asked to come in and resurrect our NY Zombie Empire.Naw, that's too devious even for this
S'can't-del'us bunch of feebs.And we're still just a few games out of 1st in our division.No wonder Stern wants to retire.Maybe he'll join the fellas on TNT?It's snowing...
"According to several reports, the Knicks were prepared to trade Raymond Felton and Metta World Peace plus Iman Shumpert or Tim Hardaway Jr. or a 2018 first-round pick. The Raptors preferred the first-round pick, but Dolan — who negotiated the Carmelo Anthony trade with Raptors GM Masai Ujiri when Ujiri was with the Denver Nuggets — got cold feet about trading a future asset. That could open the door for the Brooklyn Nets to acquire Lowry instead.
“Dolan didn’t want to get fleeced again by Masai,” was how one Knicks source put it. “They had a deal ready.”
The stupidity continues, (see pg 32 in ESPN mag, might be pg 34)
Felton is hurt because he didn't heal, brought back too soon.Lowery is a healthier version of Felton, maybe slightly better, not a huge upgrade.So to get a healthier version of Raymond you give away Shump, huge upside in less toxic situ, or a first round pick.Lets not even entertain Raymond and Hardaway (kid could be very very good).Raymond and a second rounder. Raymond and Metta (Sorry, we traded Clyde, loving NY is not enough).Not Metta and a 2nd rounder.Metta and Aldridge.Throw in JR's brother on any deal + tickets to JD and the Whatever.Don't give away the baby because you're getting your ass whipped.You should be used to it.Get help at a minimum cost and get better.Trades made in panic mode ALWAYS backfire.Take a deep breath and call DWalsh for some advice.Oh yeah he won't take your call.Wonder why?lgk?
I don't blame Melo for this mess. Melo is probably the only player who has played on both sides of the court most of the time.
Sure Melo has become an isolationist but his teammates keep asking him ot bail them out because they keep hitting more air than the inside of a net.
This is what happens when writers run out of factual stuff to write about:
