I was looking on ESPNNEWS and they were talking Iverson. I teams looking at him were Memphis and Miami. the 1st thing that popped in my head was NY. Do you think he could be a good fit?
He's still a great player. He isn't the same type of player since his Philly days but this guy can still score 20 or more points a game. It's not like the Knicks are an established playoff team with a set core of players so yeah AI would help NY.
good pick up if the contract is just for a year..that way they can stay competitive this year but after that it makes no sense since they are trying to save money for next year
so like a 1 year- 6 mil deal? I think if he can run the PG spot....he would be a solid addition
yeah..doubt he takes that though..he wants nearing 9 mill to 10...reports are that hes most likely gonna go to the grizz because they will and can offer him more then other teams
hell no resign nate and david lee
Nate robinson is a good player on a bad team...Lee is looking more and more gone.
I would let nate walk.
Trade Lee and
sign Sessions or Iverson
actually check out hoopsworld..lee is said to be going to the blazers...i like nates game but the problem is he looks to score more then he looks to pass..not something you really want out of a pg unless they are making others better and getting up to 10ast
offer sheet deal? The Knicks can match.... or a sign and trade
Lee won't like to backup aldridge if signs with portland.
I would sit for 10 mil
why dont you think he would like to back him up??..you talked to him or something?..lol...i think ill wait to hear what lee says about going to portland....i would sit for alot less than that....i sat while in venezula for 40k for 6months my first time overseas and wasnt too sad..lol
I don't think we would pay 10 mil for a backup.
Well...go on hoopsworld and read it. He wants 10-11 mil so either you guys are gonna pay him or a sign and trade looks likely
if i was the knicks...i would want a 1st rounder.
Im just wondering y do u knicks fan hate chris duhan?
he is clearly a backup PG. The Knicks need a legit starting PG. Duhon is a good player but better off the bench.
lol..yeah i never understood the thinking of him being a starter full time..and the portland thing is suppossed to be a sign and trade..im guessing outlaw will be going and maybe blake though i doubt that unless protland has a pg target in mind
David Lee (5 year-55mil) traded to Portland for Fernandez, Draft Rights to Mills and 2010 2nd rounder?
Josh dude. You play overseas?
rudy will love that system..pretty good building blocks for when they sign 2 stars next year
I know, he's crazy near the hole man. Plus he can shoot. Solid player next to Gallo and Hill
it will be interesting to see how he does considering hes gonna be a starter now and playing more against other teams first units and having defenses focused on him
the having to guard a joe jonhson d wade vince carter ray allen gilbert arenas igudala ben gordan rip gerld wallace micheal redd..now we gonna really see what hes made of
Who are you talking about?
I hope they add him. Walsh would be smart to add Rudy. I think he would start off the bench though because Hughes is still in NY
a cancer?..how u figure...he wasnt a cancer in denver and it wasnty his fauly that dumb a$$ joe dumars traded for him when they already had guard..not one player or coach in denver said he was a cancer in denver ..yeah he isnt the same iverson as in the past but hes still better then most of the players in the nba
rudy is for real!!but the rudy-lee trade it´s just a speculation,or did you guys read something?
i assume it´s not a real rumor,but make some sense for NY,they´ve get a great player with small salary so they don´t compromise the 2010 plan.
i see lee playing great minutes in portland but not much sense 10mill for lee,they´ve got needs in pg and a lot of players with rookie contracts and high salaries expected but if there,s an owner who puts the money it´s allen.
hmmmmm actually i havent been able to find that it went through anywhere...knicks where did u see that tha trade happened?
oh wait you put a question mark after u asked me.....im not sure that can happen cuz salaries dont match up
If Iverson signs with New York, they will probably win a few more games, but unless they can get him for a short contract for cheap, he's not worth it, He'd fit in with D'Antoni's system, yes, but despite the fact the guy can still play a little bit if you put him on an unproven team that may struggle and not win a lot,i don't think his attitude would be the best
Who is the big contract in Portland? Prizbilla?
Darius Miles contract.
yea...throw in Pryzbilla and the agreement to pay 1/2 of Miles Contract (4.5 for 1 year)
i wouldnt throw him in because of odens history so far with injuries..he just seems to get injured every year including college so you need joel as insurance policy..
yea, but maybe add a vet C and give the reigns to Oden....I think its time to see what he is made of....
Anyway Iverson would be good for 1 year but I don't see that happening.
Iverson may not work anywhere,he needs to dominate the ball in order to feel apart of the team,the knick need legitimate improvement in order get free agents in 2010, they would be better off with Kidd. IVERSON is a team killer,a guard of his size can't carry a team,unless he's plays like chris paul that ain't happening
his teammates there never said he was a cancer soooo where are u getting youre info from?..you talked to the players?..cuz they were quoted as saying he was a good teammate....or are u just guessing ?....knicks oden was thrown out there when he wasnt injuried..he tends to foul alot ..so the fact that he fouls and stays injured so far leads me to believe they wouldnt trade joel...plus joel is a very good defense of center which takes pressure off of lamarcus to be a great defender...im not sure what other free agent big man is out there that could replace joel...not including a rasheed wallace of course
A cancer is like Marbury.
though he wasnt a cancer with the celtics last year..im not sure i count newyork because they dont know what the hell they were doing up there..that team is a cancer
its like when some one goes to the okland raiders and acts up..i just dissmiss it since it is the raiders
Hey guys is this a different time in basketball,guards like Iverson and Marbury can't be faces of teams no more
if youre good enough and win games you can be the face of the team ..winning and production combines solves all problems in sports
Good fit, he'd score a ton. But business-wise not a good deal.
question define buisness wise because the team would definatly make money off of the jerseys and other things..iverson has proven that his stuff still sells...a one year deal for the right price works for them
he could be like a 1 year- 6 mil man and can improve his stock around the league as a legit #2 option
