knicks are clearing salary space big-time for 2010, when lebron, wade, and bosh will be free agents.
gone are starters crawford and randolph.

could lebron and wade be on their way to the big apple?

@Region Philbis,
How about the Knicks playing 7 and beating the Wizards yesterday?


Some other notable 2010 unrestricted free agents:
Dirk Nowitzki
Josh Howard
Kendrick Perkins
Paul Pierce (but he'll be so damn old)
Kenyon Martin (can you imagine K-Mart and LeBron flying around the same rim?)
J.R. Smith
Tayshaun Prince (!)
Yao Ming
Kobe Bryant (who?)
Pau Gasol
Marko Jaric
Tyson Chandler
Morris Peterson
Peja Stojakovic
Samuel Dalembert
Amare Stoudemire
Tony Parker
Andrei Kirilenko
Caron Butler
Darius Songaila (you won't think so unless you've really watched him, but a very solid role player)


The Knicks can do some serious shopping in 2010 if they don't spend some of that cap room before then. There are a few names available in 2009, though, and the Knicks may feel some pressure to spend some money next summer if they stink it up for the rest of this season.

Notable 2009 unrestricted free agents:
Tracy McGrady
Hedo Turkoglu (a sentimental favorite of mine)
Manu Ginobili (old? yep. broken? maybe)
Fabricio Oberto (this guy can bang)
Jermaine O'Neal (on an irreversible decline? maybe)
Carlos Boozer (can he be effective in D'Antoni's system? probably not)
Mehmet Okur (big guy who can bury the 3 -- picture him spotting up on the right elbow extended on the secondary break)
Jordan Farmar (he's showing a lot of improvement this season)

@patiodog,
yeah, they willed themselves to win that one.
how about staahbury just sitting on the bench while the team's short-handed?
they're paying him not to play at this point.

d'antoni wants greyhounds, so stoudemire might be in their sights as well...

@Region Philbis,
Not something I expect to happen, but -- can you imagine Tony Parker running the point in that system? Scary.

@patiodog,
not sure that would work -- too many scorers, not enough shots.
they'll need a speedy pass-first point to dish the rock to the studs...

@Region Philbis,
Difference is that Carlesimo deserved it. Guy should have been fired before he was even hired...

I think Parker can be a distributor. He breaks apart defenses better than anybody but Nash and Chris Paul. The Spurs system doesn't really play to his creativity because it's meant to funnel the ball to guys who start from a standstill. It's the same situation Nash was in in Dallas -- paired with a big, deliberate, catch/triple-threat/make-a-one-on-one move guy in Nowitzki. When he went to Phoenix, where the emphasis was on flow rather than isolations, suddenly he was Steve Nash the Master Distributor. San Antonio is an isolation/post-up team, just like the Mavericks were.

starbury whips out flame-thrower... bridge burnt beyond recognition...
Quote:
NEW YORK -- With his career in New York seemingly finished, Knicks guard Stephon Marbury lashed out at teammates and coach Mike D'Antoni a day before he was to meet with team president Donnie Walsh about a possible buyout, the New York Post reported in Monday's edition.

Walsh suspended Marbury for Saturday's game against Golden State because the Knicks said Marbury refused to play Wednesday night in a loss at Detroit. The Knicks also docked his pay from that night, with the penalties costing Marbury nearly $400,000.

"I sat there for three weeks and didn't say one word," Marbury told the Post. "I didn't hear one of my teammates say, 'Why isn't Stephon Marbury playing? This is a good system for him, even to play with the second unit and bring more firepower.'

"When things got bad and then worse, guys like Quentin Richardson say, 'I don't consider him a teammate. He let his teammates out to dry.' He didn't care I was his teammate when I was banished. They left me out for dead. It's like we're in a foxhole and I'm facing the other way. If I got shot in the head, at least you want to get shot by the enemy. I got shot in the head by my own guys in my foxhole. And they didn't even give me an honorable death."

mobley's calling it a career.
turns out the trade worked out really well for him -- who knows if they would've discovered the heart ailment had he stayed put...

@Region Philbis,
Too bad. I've always liked Cuttino Mobley -- he was a gamer with the Rockets, a gamer in his short stint with the Kings. Kind of reminded me of Vernon Maxwell without all the crazy.

Five years into the thread, we find that Larry's been gone for a long time, Isiah has been run out of town on a rail, and asshole of the league Marbury, while still technically on the roster, has been effectively kicked off the ******* team. Good. The tumors are gone.

And you know what? They are finally starting to look like they might actually do something! They definitely don't play like they're already beat, like they've done for the better part of the past five years. This week is going to be a tough test though. They play the Lakers, The Cavs and the Celtics. Yikes.
