Ridiculous. Donnie isn't that dumb to send Balkman on his way to cut a measly 1.3 mill or so. Much bigger salaries than that must be sliced. Besides Balkman is the one player who will benefit the most from D'Antonio's run and gun. He is there best open court player. He was hurt last year and didn't show his talent. First the talk about Lee, now this. More Ridiculous chatter. RIDICULOUS.

What is the obsession with the Knicks when it comes to players who played at Florida? Lee, Robertson, and now Green. Hopefully management knows sometrhing us fans don't.

You have to be kidding. No savvy and quick decision making ability. Balkman has energy and drive, and is flexible. He is one of the only Knicks that i was excited about. What a sad day for the Knicks. I am sad they picked D'Antoni. He is not in touch with the New York fans.

Well, what's wrong with Jamaal Tinsley, you need a Point Guard to back up the aging Doham since all you Knicks fans seem to have given up on Stephan Marbury???????

I mean honestly we Pacer fans just wanna get rid of Tinsley so we don't have to deal with PG's on the roster and roughly 6.5 million against the cap for another 3 years.

We are tired of taking other peoples trash, and their salaries. That is how we got into this mess. Now we just want to dump all the overpaid useless pieces (James, Curry, Randolph, STEPH, Jeffries, etc) and start anew.You can have them all for $1

Na, I just want Jerome James for Jamaal Tinsley, so the Pacers can get rid of him and not have to worry about his 3 year contract and like your Knicks, the Pacers want to get rid of mostly other peoples trash and their own. So for $0.01 you can have Jamaal Tinsley, Marquise Daneals, Macy Obastech and Nusteravic. And if you throw in Stephan Marbury and a few 18* and DONE without CHEATING, 18*-1, and 18 wins and 1 giant loss anti Patriots shirts (yeah, yeah I know off topic), well give you Travis Deaner, Shawnie Williams and maybe, just maybe J Jack.
