    Granland has far less typos than the Times. Colour me impressed that in this day and age they seem to actually edit their articles.

    Can you imagine if the Knicks had a driving threat like LBJ? Melo would get so many open 3 looks.

    i'm not a melo hater either, but certainly not a lover. he seems to me to be the perfect example of someone who two years from now will be on the worst contract list. he's a very good offensive player, but he doesn't seem to me to have grown his game in the last couple of years. and i don't see him improving much in the next couple of years; he's talented but just not a worker. trade for him now and you're trading at the top of the market.

    Bill Barnwell writes the best articles. I always enjoy his breakdowns of the NFL and his TYFNC articles are always my favorite. When I played football in HS, I used to always question my coaches about their game tactics on blitzing and punting and his articles support my arguments that punting and blitzing aren't the optimal way to win games.

    Darren Collision for Iman Shumpert and Raymond Felton???? Why don't the Knicks just get out of basketball alltogether.

    i know i've said otherwise before, but i think rondo for westbrook could work well for both teams.

    now its Rondo to Houston rumors. I would love to see a Boston team featuring Lin, Asik, Green.

    I don't want to see Fat Felton in a Clips uni. Shumpert I'm all in for but that just leaves the Clips short-handed in the pg position considering CP3 always misses time due to injury. Collison did very well in CP3s absence.


    I am not sure Houston would even need Rondo, they play their best ball with Beverley at point and that's because he isn't a traditional PG. They've been on a roll ever since Beverley returned and Lin went back to the bench. Not sure I'd rock the boat with Rondo but I'd definitely try and get someone good for Asik.

    Nah, Crawford isn't great as PG for their set-up, he is best at SG. When CP3 went down, they had Collison plus 2 other 10-day contracted PGs. Missing Collison or replacing him with Fat Felton or Crawford if CP3 goes down again will be a disaster for the Clips.

    He's better at the 2, but he has great handles. But still, you could do worse. They should trade for Andre Miller. I know I will probably get shit for that, but I have always liked him. And he's durable.

    Hibbert is an interesting guy. He tells it like he sees it.

    Isn't Miller older than me, Pio, and JLibourel combined?

    Problem is great handling doesn't equal great play making. He can make great passes at times but he definitely looks to score first and pass later and even his passes tends to look fancy via lob or no look. Clips can't afford to not have a traditional PG.

    Plus with Reddick out indefinitely and Dudley struggling, Crawford has even moved forward to the starting line-up as a SG already next to Barnes as a SF.


    I actually wouldn't mind Miller on the Clips but only if wouldn't bitch about playing time. Dude still feels like he is in his prime.
