First off, I'm not trying to incite a flame war or anything; you can say all you want about the Sonics ;P I'm seeing rumors of Wally Sczerbiak and Zydrunas Ilgauskas.. Jerome James.. I mean, what..? Is all this just a product of overzealous NY press? Or are these actual potential moves? It's like watching a car wreck happen.. Knicks have already made the mistake of overpaying to acquire or keep mediocare players (Hardaway, Tim and Kurt Thomas, Houston, Van Horn, and on and on..) and here you are again, getting ready to put out more green for more average talent. I mean New York has basically tried to do what Dallas has.. Primarily acquiring players outside the draft. Except they either haven't had the luck or more likely haven't approached it with the right mindset or coaching. I mean this is a team that over the years has been composed of various flavors of the month. Mix em all together and you get a potpourri of crap :[ I'm wondering if you guys honestly think anything of your team? Am I missing something here? New York lost a number of games by a margin of 6 or less, and it seems management thinks that it's merely a year or two away from cracking the playoffs. I see that as a bad excuse for a team that should just admit it's headed in the wrong direction and make moves to amend it. You got yourself a quality rookie in Trevor Ariza, and Sweetney is another player with good upside. But trying to base an offense around Marbury and a bunch of soft jump shooters is obviously not working..
