Don't worry, if Isiah or anybody connected to NBA management or coaching ever reads the comments on this site, the feeling is most likely mutual and they would see most poster's here as clowns also.
Good point. They should have fined Isiah $500k for not playing Lil Nate enought! A travesty indeed.

And just imagine the Knicks missing the playoffs this year and giving thier first round pick to the bulls, they get one of the top three picks and lose out on either Oden, Durant or Brewer. This on top of them not being able to draft second last year. Nice job by Isiah the Clown.
You are right on all points. But let's get to the source of the problem (you are only noting the symptoms). They must play Lil Nate more, now!

No original thought just a mob mentality...
Great points, particularly the part about playing Lil Nate all 48 minutes.

Dude, I wasn't talking about any of that stuff (CBA, Pacers, etc.). Who cares? It is silly. Only one thing matters: Lil Nate, who will singlehandedly transform this team into a super power! Get on the bus, get with the program, grab an oar and start rowing the old canoe!

I agree with you. Hope Venom see your comments. You and I are the only ones in this forum that doesn't hope at the end of the tunnel. I think Isiah have hired people to post good comments for him in this forum. How could so many people ignore the facts.

He didn't say just salary cap. He mention alot of other things too. There isn't just one problem with the Knicks. It several problems. Mo played good last year and was probably the second best player on that team(after Crawford).

people, NY was ruined from before Isiah came along! YES, he did continue to screw up the cap space, or should I say go over double. but it started with Ewing for Rice in principle. guess who the owner was at that time? ahhhhhhh. so if anything, mr. Dolan is really the culprit. he is swayed time and again that the next GM or coach will right the ship. guess what if NY was a real ship, it would be Titanic all over again! what does he do to right it? drop Cato now that Randolph is on board. get rid of J James. trade him, our pick(the switched 1 with Chicago) & the small guy for a pick a big SG & SF or something.

then Francis and Frye can go with for Drew Gooden & Hughes. that deal was almost made. you figure Hughes is in better condition than Francis. Drew is about as good as Frye. at least he can play one position well. probably less money for those two. easier said then done, but it's a realistic start.

since Mr. Brazil of wrestling fame is in this forum & I am blessed to have a professional with us: why not Frye to Charlotte for Gerald Wallace. this guy has been playing out of position bc they have no consistent PF. so often they display 2 SFs playing together. although he has done well, since we are trying 2 clear $$$ why not Frye & Rose for Wallace. that is as close a Wallace as NY will get!!!!!!!!! unless we get Rasheed at age 36 with another big contract.....lol.lol.lol. then at least 2 guys will be satisfied on this forum!

of course no one writes how stupid they are or ridicule the obvious. that niether one is close to being a GM. Bobo Brazil is probably Bozo the Clown & Tito is most likely a young thug in the Bronx who happens to own a computer. but you chicken feet having idiots don't ridicule their bad thoughts, do they Stephania?

Mr. Lil Nate Robinson, along with members of the Wu Tang Clan, have been good friends to several members of this forum, myself included. It is now time for us to show our loyalty, by repaying Lil Nate with our unequivocable support of his efforts, as well as those of his clones.

I agree with you that being under the cap still does not guarantee you even a shot at getting a great player but being in the top of the draft does give you the best shot. Sometimes you have to win 15 - 20 games to get that shot. Unfortunatley when we did the clown had already traded our first round pick and this year's away. Curry has been good but he is not a great player. This team is just treading water. 35 wins a year and a shot at 8th place is not what I would like to see the team I root for achieve every year. Even with everybody healthly they are no better than .500 (They never got closer than 5 games under after November)

You're right. Lil Nate is the master of the other team's disaster.
