you don't think a contender might want eric gordon or pj tucker? i think so. but point taken.


gordon is falling off. but i think any contender would give up a late 1st for tucker. the knicks should think about it after kd/kyrie comes. we probably can't work it out salary wise though because we'll need a 8 mill expiring. maybe we can use frank.

a quick besart -

mitch
tucker
kd
rj
kyrie

that front court defense would be really good. the backcourt....well, nothings perfect.

Isn't that one of the things the Knicks want to do for Durant?


how would we know that? sounds like a serious assumption.

It's not a "serious assumption". A number of articles have speculated that the arrangement is that Kleinman would get significant front office pull as part of the arrangement. It's an assumption, but not "serious". It's not like I'm making it up out of whole cloth.

Before David West and KG conspired to damn near rip Melo's arm off.

I have no doubt we would've beaten the Pacers had Melo been 100% for that series. And the Heat struggled defending the 3 that year. Of course, Tyson showing up would've helped as well but the guy was always just a talker after his first season in New York.

Looking back, with Shump & Copeland are the only ones who show up to flank Melo, I’m surprised we even took them to 6.

Felton JR Tyson all abysmal and destroyed by their IND counterparts.
