    Would have liked Nash with the Knicks more so than Kidd just because I wanted to see how good the offense could be with him, Melo, Stat and Chandler.

    I wonder what the Mavs are going to do at this point with most of their targets basically gone lol

    Iggy? He is baby Lebron, he needs the ball in his hands to be worth the price. He isn't a great spot up shooter or even range shooter. No point in having his with Kobe and Nash handling the ball.

    I really wouldn't trade him for Young either, anything that would make them smaller is simply a bad idea.

    He's only 39, has at least another 2-3 good months left. All we need to do now is not sign Lin and trade Shumpert for some 2nd round draft picks and we are set.

    By about the 20th-25th game I am thinking that calls for Woodson/Dolan/Melo's heads will start. Kidd is a good enough PG, he understands the flow of the game and is not going to make a mistake to cost you the game. The problem is that he is not going to take on the Carmelo project of convincing him to take less shots/rebound more. Melo's issue with Lin was that he was not "used to a point guard having the ball so much"?? Cockknocker, he is the point guard, that is is job!! Yours is to move around, get open, create a double team and then pass to a cutter/open man. Woodson is not going to really challenge Carmelo, is easier to keep your job is you are losing with the status quo than if you are losing by shaking things up. Also, woodson does not like Lin, so expect the 39 year old Kidd to log over 20 minutes a game.

    At least to compete in the East, the Knicks don't really need any players. They could use a pure shooting guard but other than that, when you look at the talent, they have enough to win. Unfortunately the talent does not meld together. What they really needed was a Riley/Jackson type coach that would read players the riot act (and get them traded) if they did not do what was needed to win. Instead we have the starstruck Dolan, that just wants big "names" on the team to fill seats and Woodson who seems to hold grudges against players and will only last as long as he keeps Melo happy.

    3 team trade with the Hawks and team X for the Lakers to get JOSH SMITH!!!! FOR THE MOST EXCITING OFFENSE EVAR!!!!

    edit:

    At first I was joking, but:

    I just did a three way trade in the NBA trade machine that actually makes sense:

    hawks get:
    louis scola
    kyle lowry

    Lakers get:
    Josh smith

    Houston gets:
    Pau Gasol

    edit #2: fuck,,,,while I was typing this kyle lowry gets traded to the raptors :p

    but with Josh Smith think of the offensive hijinks that he'd bring to the table! NASH+KOBE+J.SMOOVE+BYNUM+WORLD PEACE = AWESOME SAUCE THAT FILLS THE VOID CALIFORNIA HAS WITH THE ABSENCE OF FOIE GRAS

    Lin leaving NY, going to the Rockets. No point in in staying in NY for less money especially after Woodson wouldn't let him plays as a PG anyways.

    What's going on with the rockets? Why are they blowing up their team. I thought they'd try to build around Kyle Lowry or even dragic
