In the back of their minds, I hope Donnie Walsh and Mike D'Antoni are thinking about what changes will be made in the off-season. I'm crossing my fingers that they'll find players with mental toughness, as well as addressing some needs in the interior and at the point. At this point, everyone is tradeable in my opinion. Hey Isiah- take Eddy Curry with ya...lol.

it's time to stop blaming Isiah for this mess. the team has been rebuilt 4 times since pre-season by making trades of players who had major miniutes. they play the style that D'aNton wants which includes giving up 50% FG to opponents. NOw two more key contributors Hughes, Arrington,(and Q-Brick) are the ones with expiring contracts next year so there will be more turnover. They talk like Galinari and Chandler will be the only holdovers since they won't match the money that FA's Lee and NAte will demand next year. The NY press is just NOW questioning the moves... I think I heard the word clusterf*CK used in a movie once. Sounds like this...

hopefully the plan works in two years cause it's hard to tell what the heck they want now. 42- 45 wins would have meant playoffs. the team that came out of the pre-season could have done that easily. NOw they sort of admit they have NO chance at Lebron but where supposed to be encouraged that 36 year old J-Kidd might be available next year. what a joke!!

They've been at this for 6 months, let's give them a chance. The players they traded may have been better than most of what we have now, but may not have fit into the plans of where they wanted to be, and the type of offense the coach will use. It's not like we traded away Kobe & Lebron! The players we traded away were easily expendable. Randolph puts up good numbers, but it's not the first time he's been traded. Crawford shot the ball way too much for someone who doesn't shoot that well.

Did you really expect to make the playoffs this year? I for one am glad they didn't, as it gives us a shot at the pick! If they do get lucky and get to pick Griffith, are you still gonna miss Zach?

You nailed it. It's a plan where you have to get LUCKY for it to work. They still say that Galinari was a good pick, because he will be "star" in 3 years.
only perenial losers plan for lottery position in the first month of the season and sadly that's what this franchise has become. YOu have to believe that the top players think that they can win in D'ANton style... that's not what they're saying.. and no one's out there ready to trade a Kevin Garnett to NY.... but keep hope alive....

LUCK will have to play a part in this, for sure. And we all know the Knick's "luck", when it comes to draft picks. Glinari played ok this year, when he did play, but a "back" injury is a scary one to fully recover from. He could have been a good player in the NBA, but I doubt a star. Now....who knows?

YOu just wrote the Knicks press conference for 2010... "well we had to get lucky and unfortunately we didn't so it will take more time".... I guess they hope that they can still sell those $1000 court side seats with a plan based on luck of the draft and who MIGHT sign..

personaly I smelled something fishy, when you install a system that reqires shooter/scorers and then trade your top two away for lesser talent. Crawford for Arinngton may be a wash, but Randoplh for Tim Thomas for Wilcox was NOt an upgrade.

You make valid points, for sure, but I think where we differ the most is our thoughts on Crawford and Zach. I didn't mind them leaving one bit, especially Crawford

19-20 at home with the lineup ready to turn over at least twice more when those expiring contracts get traded next year.... If this was a college team where you expected a lineup turnover every year is one thing, this team has no identity, has no image. It promotes Lee one week, Nate the next and now it's Chandler since it's a good chance that neither Nate nor Lee will be signed before they are FA's. Right now it's a team not worthy of any attention... as a NYer
I'm not used to MSG being dark in APril except for when the Circus is in town ... more of those years to come...
