The Knicks have the best chance to win when he doesn't play. He can take Curry with him. Oh yeah, I forgot, he can take Isiah and Dolan with him too.

So Crawford thinks nobody can imagine what hes going through? Is that b/c nobody else has ever lost their father? All athletes are retarded.

No one can know what he is going through because everyone grieves differently. No one should ever tell someone how they are to grieve a loss of a family member, nevermind a father who was a huge part of his son's life.

Any so called fan who wants Curry gone is clueless. The guy is 25 years old an a offensive monster. Had he gone to HS he would only be in the years a few years and quite honestly would of been more polished all around. The Knicks job is to hone his offensive skills, while making sure he gets in and stays in shape. In addition to that, they need to bring in a big man who can preach defensive bacis and instill some kind of intensity on the defensive end.

For the life of me I don't understand why Ewing wasn't ever brought back to the Garden.

I really don't think firing Isiah will solve anything because in most instances you'll bring in a new GM and Coach who will want to put his own stamp on the team. More than likely the team will make trades just to make trades and bring in their "own" people and aside from a few players I think this team needs to stay together. Overall, they are very young and talented and just need to gel together and learn how to play as a team. However, if you bring in Van Gundy and Ewing comes along as an assistant then I'm all for it.(Except Patrick is with the Magic now and I doubt he'd leave a team mid-year to come back to the Knicks)

Again, I like Isiah and I think the Knicks should stick with him a bit more.

However, if Dolan does end up firing him I hope they go the route of bringing back some former Knicks players as assisants. Players like Ewing, which I mentioned above and Oakley. Some old Knicks that knew how to play hard and would get in the players face if they didn't give it their all on both ends of the court.

Yes people, I agree. Poor, poor Stephon. I think he should sit out the rest of the season, grieve for his father and be paid with the money of season ticket holders. After all, shouldn't everyone be able to get paid millions of dollars to help deal with the pain and suffering that only Stephon can know? Stephon needs our support and care.

You know almost as little about basketball as you do about baseball. Curry is fat and out of shape, can't jump, rebound or play D. That type of player doesn't win championships. The man is twenty five and has been in the league for 7 years. Ask Isiah if he would trade 2 lottery picks all over again for him and we all know the answer to that one, except maybe you.
