He may be the best guy in our system right now. He seems born to play in it. I say if he plays his head off then wait until summer to think about trades. Bad article sorry. You don't use old logic to figure out new options. And Randolph being born again is a new option.

I second the very wise comments made by Ben Dover. Shaun Powell should be thrown into a cell and told to bend over for some of the silly drivel he writes. You guys have no idea what is going on in the Knicks. As Donny Walsh and D'Antoni have said, Zach Randolph is a 20/10 guy. I'm sorry but trade bait for what? It should be a rule that if you talk about some player leaving you mention possible destinations that make sense for both teams. If not, any idiot came make this stuff up. I mean, you guys wonder why people don't buy newspapers anymore. You wonder why some blogs are more popular than your website. Well, it's because of silly articles like this. I have to read an article as silly as this one in every single section when I pick up my newspaper. Sheesh.

everyone keeps saying they must move Randolf but by 2010 he becomes and ideal contract for a sign and trade for Lebron. In order to get one of these free agents and allow them to get the biggest contract they can a sign, you need a big contract plus young prospects to send the other way. Randolf will have only 2 years left on his contract at that time, what's wrong with that?.

"This season is all about getting rid of Randolph, preferably by the trading deadline." tell that to season ticket holders that the KNicks need to trade a 20/10 player for a draft pick and then wait for 2010

My goodness. Did the Knicks just trade away Zach Randolph for the hopes that Lebron will sign with them 2 years from now? Finally one of their silly trades appear to be working in their favour, and they trade him for a guy who is on the verge of a heart attack, and another guy who ny fans begged management to trade away 5 years ago. Ridiculous trade. Waste of an asset.
