This team is just pathetic, and I am totally done with them. You have got to be kidding me. This is exactly why the Knicks will never have a championship team ever again. Why, why, why would you trade for yet another past his prime player with an inflated salary. Gimme a break, please Commisioner Stern, I am begging you. Please fire the ownership from the Knicks along with their management. They are killing NY'ers with their inability to perform their jobs. Obviously they have shown that they have no knowledge what so ever on how to run an NBA franchise.
Geez, It just keeps getting worse.

If this report is somehow accurate and Isiah gets this deal done it will be the absolute tipping point to an already disastrous season. The only teams it will benefit are the Heat because they will have a "big man" in Curry and they will have the 1st overall pick in this years draft so they will be a young team within 8-10 years. The Nets are also in a rebuilding mode so they will recant a bad decision in signing Vince Carter and make him the Knicks problem. Half Man/Half a Season is on the downside of 30 and he hasn't played a full NBA season since his days in Toronto. Oh and by the way If we lose Curry whos going to replace him Jerome James? Big Snacks? Oh yeah thats right in Isiah's mind the league is phasing out the big man. Setting the Knicks up for another 5-10 years of bad basketball. Dolan if you're listening and youre probalby not but I'm going to say it anywaySTOP THE MADNESS NOW!!!!!

This will be very telling if it occurs. If Dolan allows that idiot Thomas to make one more personnel move than you can also be assured that Thomas will not be fired and is not going anywhere. Knick fans have been hopeful that Dolan is punishing Thomas by making him sleep in this bed he has created. It will be a sad day, maybe the saddest day in franchise history if Isiah is allowed to continue his disaterous personnel moves one more day.

Great deal for the Nets. Still not sure why Thorn signed him to begin with. Nets will have lot's of cap room when Lebron becomes available.

Thomas is trying to give his buddy Pat Riley a gift before he gets fired. If Dolan allows this trade to go through, he should perform with the rest of the clowns when the circus comes to MSG.

Fire Isiah today before he makes another dumb trade that will leave us waiting until 2012 before we see .500 again!

Thanks, Isiah keep digging the hole deeper and deeper with malcontent fading and overpaid babies. At this pace it will take the Knicks until the next century to dig out from this mess. The Dolan family are the worst owners in professional sports.

I could do a better job than Isiah. Vince Carter??? Man please. Curry for expiring contracts or leave him on the bench. Right now the best thing to do is let Lee and Balkman get major minutes. Sit Richardson down we know what he can do. Curry has to go Zach is way better.

Agreed. Any move Isiah is allowed to make that involves more years, more salary or the trading of draft picks would be the worst of signs for this franchise.

Hey Isiah, when did you change your name to iceman21???
Get real man, Knicks have absolutely no use for a fading Carter past his prime, especially with a bigger hit on the cap. Trade for expiring contracts period and get yourself under the damn cap already. Its not that hard to get under the cap unless you keep trading for more expensive players like he's been doing.

3:00 has come and gone. Has this trade happened? I gather it hasn't. 28 games to go. Can you spell "Twenty-nine game losing street"?
