Absolutely. Trading Lil Nate would cause a situation comparable to "the curse of the Bambino".

I have got 2 commend you on that 1! hell of ajob. you are 100% correct. you always get the best player whether you need him or not. see I wish we got Marcus Williams. not as a sub for SM though. but to include him & Frye/Lee in a blockbuster. well done. I would take Ogden then trade him, 1st try trading Curry of course.
If the Knicks keep giving up on players under 25 after only a YEAR OR 2 like trading a Curry. Lee or Frye the Knicks will continue to make other teams better. Camby got labeled as fragil before he came here and when he played for the Knicks. Now the players that we gave up for an injured McDyess (Camby and Nene) have manned the Nugget front line for 5 years and will probably be their 10 yeares more. It may never happen but it says something about the fans in Denver, Sacaremento, Charlote, Toronto.... that they give their teams the patience and support needed to build a team. In Ny we give a player a year or two then he's trade bait like some bad fantasy league. Soemtimes fans get what we deserve, no consitency, no foundation, no patience for progression and development in players....
When Ewing came in it was 'he doesn't rebound enough, then he did, then he didn't block enough shots, then he did, Later it was he shoots too much from outside and harping on every late game FT or shot he missed. If Shaq played in NY he would have run out of town long ago for being 'too lazy' to work on improving his Foul shooting. and then we think star FA players will want to come to NY, yea right

Those flights from Illinois to Mid town manhattan to use your many Knick game tickets must be a killer. Congratulations if you got it like that. I remember Bensville as being right near the airport.
Do you use a private jet? I remember passing Bensenville on the way to O'Hare Airport down Irving Park road. Was the land cheap because you're in the flight path of everything? I guess you get used to the noise.

Still have no idea where Mike Breen's head is or why he was even chosen as the Knicks play by play guy in the first place. And really can't fathom how he got the play by play deal at ESPN, other than the fact thst he's pretty much consistent with the rest of the reatrds hanging out over there. But for a guy who does play by play for so many games during the course of a season, his seemingly lack of basic knowledge is baffling. He never seems able to accurately articulate what problems the Knicks are experiencing when we see the other team go on a run. It's always "the Knicks are playing poorly" or "just a total of lack of effort on the part of the Knicks", with him. And the other team is never given credit for what it is they're doing right to take control of the game. The cause is always simply identified as the Knicks playing poorly or not putting out the effort. And as we see (or hear) so often, Clyde or Kenny Smith have to step in and explain exactly what it is the other team has done or is doing, that has given them the upper hand against the Knicks, while Breen is still yelling in the mike, "yes, but the Knicks are still playing very poorly". Granted the Knicks do play poorly at times, but what team doesn't? All teams go through spells where nothing is working right for them, which is why coaches call timeouts. But I've never seen another announcer, so quick to jump on a team and literally label them as a "bunch of dogs", the way Breen does with the Knicks every time they hit a bad spell. In spite of all the injuries and all the youth this team has, you would think that their play by play guy would be familiar enough with their situation, to at least realize that this team is doing the best they possibly can under extreme conditions. The players didn't create the mess at MSG. They're just stuck with it and it's after effects. And while they're doing a good job of making the most of a bad situation and helping to improve it, maybe Breen needs to take a look at what brought this organization to where it is, and talk about that. That's if he's got balls enough.
Thanks. Great, perfect analysis. I thought maybe it was his voice. He has an NBS top 50 player sitting next to him in Clyde Frazier. You would think that he would try to get more insights as to what's happening. An interesrting article in this weeks SN on whether some teams are tanking games for the draft position. they mention Celtics Doc rivers playing subs for a quarter against Bobcats and blowing 18 point lead. If Isiah did that I can only imagine the 'I hate Isiah' outrage would be. they also comment that Doc 'will be playing golf sitting next to Mike Breen' next year. We can only hope.

<quoted text>The truth hurts. Maybe he'll start talking about the positives when there are some. Dolan got rid of the best announcer in Knick history because he did not drink the Kool-Aid, hopefully the same does not happen to Breen. Be careful what you wish for because you just light get 82 games of Gus Johnson sucking up to Dolan.
As DBB stated, we don't need a 'homer' announcer. But you or I can sit at the Mike and just repeat 'the Knicks are playing poorly'. Marv would offer insight into whats going on, on the court. Like so and so is slow on defense or the entry pass was intercepted becuse a player didn't come to the ball. Marv used to fill in the gaps since the camera always follows the ball. I do agree that it was a mistake to dismiss Marv. Marv was there for the great veteran teams. He had to bother him to see the drop in the quality of the play. the accusations of cross-dressing by his ex-wife just gave MSG an excuse to make the move

The only reason Stephon Marbury has raised his game is that he has been under the close tutelage of Mr. Lil Nate Robinson.

what I think is with a defensive center instead of offense only(Curry) we got a shot. imagine us at full strength with Q healthy & Crawford shooting from outside? there are days when Curry only scores 14 with no rebounds or blocks. how much is he helping us? now get a guy like Ogden, not saying we have a shot at him haters....all the close losses are now winnable. Bill Russell was more of a defender than anything! I am sure no one will complain about his tenure in beantown.

If you already did then you should understand why I responded to you. Your understanding is very poor. You respond to comments and forget what you wrote. Then when you go back and read it you still say the other person is wrong & an Idiot. Think before you call someone a name(Idiot), it reflects on your Very Poor Understanding!!
