“We’ll form our own Big 3,” Paul said of possibly joining forces with Amar’e Stoudemire and Anthony - who would be traded to the Knicks seven months later - in New York. It has been nearly two years since Chris Paul made that toast heard ’round the NBA at Carmelo Anthony’s wedding.
“I know why I didn't sign my extension,” Paul told the media on Sunday before the U.S. Olympic team practiced. “I’m going to play this season out and see what my options are.”
Paul hinted at ending ending up in a Knicks uniform and and so did Anthony, who smiled when asked about Paul’s future prospects. Paul has learned to say all the right things since his premature request to get out of the NOH. Including this bone to the media : “I love where I am, I love playing with the Clippers and I love playing with this guy (Blake Griffin),” Paul said. “At the end of the year I’ll weigh all my options. That will be my top priority going into next summer.
The Knicks know their window is closing faster than Jason Kidd is turning 40. Even the novice Knick fan knows that Jason Kidd backing up Jeremy Lin will not bring this team to even an Eastern Conference finals. They know it's a leaking
until CP3 comes to 2 Penn Plaza. BELIEVE IT!
We'll see if our scouts did their homework with unknown potentially New Knicks. Summer league starts this Saturday.

Goodbye Jeremy Lin! WELCOME BACK MARCUS. KNICKS SEEK TO SIGN BOTH 7-11-12. UPDATE SOON AS INFORMATION COMES IN.
Camby as a KNICK~
Chris Paul denied the Los Angeles Clippers' three-year extension 60 Million dollar offer Saturday night. Plain and simple ..... Paul wants to be a Knick and Tyson Chandler may be the one who has to go to make it happen.
Lot of NBA execs believe Chris Paul is still hoping to find a way to get to the Knicks...won't happen this summer. Maybe next July
HEY DREAM TEAM 1992 FROM ISIAH THOMAS
Here are your Members of the 1992 "Dream Team."
Charles (no Ring) Barkley
Patrick ( no Ring) Ewing
Christian( A pure White Man America symbol) Laettner,
Karl (no Ring) Malone,
Chris ( no Ring and Drunk driver resulting in the death of others) Mullin,
John ( no Ring) Stockton
Six of these players never won a Championship in the NBA. After watching a sickening documentary on this 1992 "Dream Team" I now have a lot more Respect for Isiah Thomas as a player. Thomas has won at every level of his Basketball career. State High School Chip. NCAA Championship ( under Bobby Knight) and TWO
NBA Championships in a league that was not watered down like it is today. He was the ultimate floor general of perhaps the most physical and toughest team that ever played the game. Surely Isiah deserved to be on such a team over Barkley, Stockton, Malone ( what chip did the Mailman deliver?) Drexler, Mullin and the joke of Christian Laettner.
Thomas haters are in reality Racists that get a chance to Modern Day LYNCH a Blackman. They will claim ..NO ..it was the Job he did while at New York, all the while dismissing the deprivation of White men Layden and Walsh. The fact is Thomas may have taken over the worst constructed, worst cap deficient team in history and considering what he inherited... did a good not great job. But this is America. The same America that slaughtered unarmed Native Americans at wounded knee during a Blizzard. After a thought of humanity by a few but rare decent White men of that era, they dispatched a group of soldiers to Wounded Knee to collect any survivors of that massacre. The wagonloads of wounded Sioux ( 4 Men and 47 Woman and children ) that were rounded up in subzero temperatures reached Pine Ridge after dark. Because all available barracks were filled with soldiers, the wounded Sioux woman and children were left lying in open wagons in bitter-cold while an inept Amry officer searched for shelter. Finally the the Episcopal mission was opened, the benches were taken out and hay was scattered over the rough flooring.
It was the fourth day after Christmas in the year of 1890. When the first torn and bleeding bodies were carried into the candlelit Church, those who were conscious could see Christmas greenery hanging from the open rafters. Across the chancel front above the pulpit was strung a crudely lettered banner:
PEACE ON EARTH AND GOOD WILL TO MEN.
After a quick lockout-shortened season, we're once again back to that time of year; that time filled with multiple trade and free agency rumours, and unfortunately, no actual Knicks basketball.
Still, the 2012 offseason is as important as ever for the Knickerbockers, as they'll look once again to build around Carmelo Anthony and company. Of course, I hesitate to mention Amar'e Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler along with 'Melo, because depending on who you believe, they themselves could be used to bring in another superstar. That said, this preview is going to be written assuming that no major trades are going to be made - meaning that from this point in, no trades including any of the big three are going to be mentioned.
So, without further ado, I bring you the offseason preview:
GSW brass : Bob Myers indicated he's unlikely to draft four players one year after the Warriors selected three.
"You have to surround youth with veterans, or else you're setting a bad precedent," Myers said. "A lot of young players crave discipline and mentorship, and we've got to find experienced players who can provide that for our youth."
Golden State’s first pick will be seventh. They also have the 30th, 35th, and 52nd picks.
The Knicks should be all over this. Pick 30 & 35 can be had for a Landry Fields, Toney Douglas or Cash, wihich Dolan has plenty.
It is also a great reason to LBE on draft night. LGK
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!
