I'm not a big fan of Harrington. Always thought he had the potential to be a Antoine Jamison type player but never showed the drive or consistency. No defense either. People forget we do not have to unload all of our unwanted players just yet the more time that burns off thier contracts the more valuable they become. Believe it or not I believe there are alot of teams that are very interested in Zach Randolph and I also think alot of teams would love to have Eddy Curry coming off thier bench to beat up on oppenents second units. These teams right now still think they can dump thier garbage on the Knicks and get away with lopsided trades. So far Walsh is doing a good job by not biting on these shrude offers for Randolph and some half court team will eventually take Curry. Could you imagine Curry playing along side Tim Duncan or Kevin Garnet or even backing up Yao or Dwight Howard.

Everyone is so concerned about winning this year. I thought the plan was to get under the cap and let these young guys play. I say just suck it up and see if you can trade Lee and a bad contract and then we could let Chandler get a ton of minutes. Chandler is the one who is going to be really good.

Your so rite. I dont believe in tanking games but in this case it would not be tanking to play ALL the young guys. Chandler has potential as you said, he's athletic, has good moves to the hoop and he hustles on defense. I do think he should slow down with the 3pt shot a little and start taking it to the hoop more but must become a better freethrow shooter. This guy should be starting in place of Qrich and sliding to big forward at th first substitution. Like you said this should not be a season aimed at making the playoffs. this should be a chance to really play our young guys and develop them instead of the impatient win now ways of the past. Knicks need a lottery pick for summer 09' cause they gave away 1st rounder 2010 away. The hell with Al Harrington. Wheres the shot blockers.

Nobody wants Randolph because he's an immature disease. Why do you tink nody would beclamoring for a guy who'll give you 18 and 10 a night? He's a loser plain and simple. Nobody wants to shell out that much money just for numbers. Also, if Curry is picked up by anybody who wants to win, they're going to be sorry because he's not a winner either. That's why D'Antoni won't play him. Al Harrington is somebody with attitude issues at times, but in a winning situation with a respected coach, I think he could be a real asset. People have to realize despite his primarily perimeter game, he is athletic, and can take advantage of weak side situations of a good offensive scheme going to the bakset, and does have some explosive ability to finish. I wish the completely incompetent Bulls GM John Paxson would see this, and go after him, but he's too dim to understand his value beyond the rep.D'Antoni is a little(no a lot wiser), and should snag him up. Hell, the fact that he doesn't play any 'D' will make him a perfect fit for D'Antoni anyway.

I think that D'Antoni needs to give Starburry & Curry some minutes so that their trade value can be increased by the trading deadline. Al Harrington is no answer unless you can get rid of Curry. Knicks are going no where this year anyway. There fore I feel that Starburry should play comming off the bench for now. Let these contracts run out. Then its time to rebuild.

Don Nelson has benched Harrington for the same reason that D'Antoni benched Starbury: they are both malignant tumors.
Harrington is overpaid, overrated, overhyped and underachieving. His value is down like the stock market ... the Warriors are in a bad situation with him. W's aren't looking much better than the Knicks right now
