It definitely had my blood boiling when Memphis had to throw in that demand. What, are they trying to pull a fast one over Donnie and the Knicks? No surprise considering that it has been one bad deal after another, but Donnie is no Isiah or at least I hope not. Considering that he initiated these trade talks, it's up to him to cut if off if the deal includes the pick.

Forget U Racists first of all!! I mean, Darko Milicic? I want Randolph gone, but for a dude that is soft as muffin and has done nothing in the NBA after being a 1st round pick or bust!!! This is the NBA....what predominantly White team has won since the '80's Celtics? What the hell do we care what color they are. I am a fan of David Lee because he can play....Celtics had an all black team and won, the Lakers had 3 white guys and lost. Dave De "butcher" was tough, so was Bradley, Riley and Phil Jackson...we don't need anymore soft players we have had soft Black and White players for too long. In the end you can't win Championships with that kind of team. WOW when did we start burning crosses in New York!!

This trade is a zero sum gain, yet I'd make the trade AS LONG AS THE 1ST ROUND PICK IN 2010 IS "LOTTERY PROTECTED"...

I can't believe there is a team dumb enough to trade for Randolph. Give up the pick if you have to, Addition by subtraction.

Donnie needs to get a deal done already. Clearly they don't want Randolph, and he doesn't want to be here. This is similar to the Giants situation with Shockey. The Knicks have received 2 offers for this bum, and they still want more. I can see his reasoning for not wanting to trade a 1st round pick because if the Knicks stink it up this season, it might be a lottery pick, but they have to get something done already. Trade D. Lee too.

The Arko's are nogos. Don't need Marko, Darko hasn't shown heart. At least Randolf has heart. I think you gotta hold'm Donnie. You will get a better player during the season. Need to be patient....he is a 20, 10 guy, not many of them. He does play with heart....while he can't block shots or play team ball well, I'd like to see what D'Antoni can do with him before we trade him. Darko does have big upside, but I question his heart and his consistency. He is more a bust than anything else, Dumars wouldn't have let him go, he is too smart, otherwise.

OK, 99 percent of the people out there are respectable, then you get the other 1 percent who have try to offend people. The game is about basketball and the great players that play it. Lets not degrade ourselves down to the thoughts of a few, and maybe just one or two, who keep changing his names and try to stir up things. Great men have died to defend the rights of man set forth by God. He died for all men and lives in all men who call his name. Cowards are always going to be out there hiding in the shadows because thats the only place they can reveal their nature without having to show themselves in the light.
