Knicks want to keep Lee; soon they'll learn if they can

Full story: Newsday

The uncertain economic atmosphere has most NBA teams in frugal mode for this year's free-agency period, especially with everyone saving their pennies for the potentially bigger market in 2010.

Alan,
Donnie Walsh CANNOT spend more than 5 mil per year
on David Lee.

David Lee cannot defend & he has no offensive game,
the jump shot has not improved & he has not go to low
post move.

Sign & trade David Lee & Nate Robinson to the Blazers
For Jarred Bayless & Travis Outlaw. WE need a new
backcourt.

I like lee and like someone said earlier he is a foward that played well against centers plus getting double doubles are not that easy he is a hard worker and did play better than our on centers curry j.j etc.but I won't mind if he leaves I will prefer if jefferies nate(even tho he is an entertaining lil big man) and curry goes before he does. I like harrington he is also a good defensive player or was early in his career so was hughes so if darco or hill and or wilson block or alternate shots in da paint n hughes and douglas lockdown da perimeter and we got kid duhon and al who can slash and hit da open jumpet we good.however if we miss that's where d.lee comes in box out get deflections keep da ball alive damn this is a tough decision for walsh

So Lee wants $50M for 5 years and the Knicks want him to take $34M for 4. Give him one more year at $42M and see if he takes it. I DO NOT know how people can be so picky.$34M,$42M isn't enough money for you?? WTF do you want to buy? Puerto Rico? Damn, just take the money and play the damn game, and Knicks.I know you've made a name for yourselves for screwing people over but for ONCE in your existence PLEASE don't blow it. Bring back Nate and David Lee!

I don't know where some posters get off by saying Lee isn't tough. Damn, he was the toughest guy on that front line. You don't average that rebounding rate without being tough. Nate may be reckless at times but he drastically improved. Both of them will continue to improve. I won't accept both being gone and we start over with young guys that will be mistake-prone as rookies usually are. I am also not going to support signing any old dinosauers based on their names only. I've been a Knicks fan all my life and if Lee and Nate are gone I'll find a new team to root for this season.
