The Knicks have played well against two of the elite on their floor, Orlando and now San Antonio. They did not do so well against the Kings but Craw was hurt. They are about to turn the corner. They play home the 8th to the 13th against 4 pretty good teams. They will win 3 of those 4.

You and Isiah should team up to become the next Abbott and Costello.

Trade a combination of zach, richardson, crawford, balkman, jeffries for artest.

Starting Lineup:
C-Curry
PF-Rose
SF-Artest
SG-Marbury
PG-Jones

Reserves:
Lee
Chandler
Robinson
Collins

NOW THATS A WINNING COMBINATION!

I guess Isiah din't have the foresight to see that a ball-needy, no-D power forward lik Zach wouldn't complement a ball-needy, no-D center like Curry. His decision-making in creating team chemistry is atrocious, see steve francis/marbury pairing, balkman/jeffries, for more evidence. The man should never work in basketball again, he is without a doubt, the worst GM ever

You're the fool, fool. Bringing in a mental case will make the Knicks winners. There is no hope for this team. I've been watching the Knicks since the early 60's and I know good basketball. And that's right fool, Isiah has ruined this team. With the untradeable contracts ,mediocre talent and terrible chemistry( Randolph, Jeffries, Richardson James) they will be bad for years to come. Combine all that with a terrible coach who has completely lost his team you get last place with no end in sight FOOL!!!

Did the term fool get under your skin....lol. It's obvious that Zeke sucks, that should not even be stated anymore because it falls on deaf ears.

In a perfect world Kiki would be GM, Mark Jackson coach, with Herb and Patrick as assistant coaches.
Owned by someone who actually cares. Now because you've been watching since the 60's and i have been since 87' doesn't mean i don't know "good basketball"...fool.(I'm such a fool that every player i stated to be traded you agreed they sucked..lol)

With that being stated, the only thing Zeke does is trade, so thats the "solution" until he is gone. TRADE FOR ARTEST ALREADY, I RATHER HAVE A HEAD CASE WHO CARES THAN A TEAM THAT CAN ONLY AGREES TO GIVE UP.

The problem is that we all want to trade undesirable players for players that will help. That usually doesn't happen in the real world. this year is a done deal with no chance to make the playoffs. You can't trust Thomas to make any moves. He'll just add more ridiculous contracts for the quick fix that make no sense in the long run. There is no chance today to change the dynamics of this team unless he is gone, completely out of the picture. The damage has been devastating and will take even a great basketball mind at least three years to get this team on the right track.
By the way "fool" did get under my skin, I'm over it so let's move on.
