Might as well pencil in Thanasis for a roster spot in 2015. No way he does this (signs in the D League for basically minimum wage) without a handshake deal from Phil

Shumpert for Dion Waiters?


I'm one of those homer freaks who actually think Shumpert is better than Waiters, but I realize I'm in the minority.  Also Shumpert is near to getting paid, which the Knicks may not be able to do, so he will probably get traded.


Anyway, I was thinking what the Cavs need to win a chip, and Shumpert is probably a better fit for them than Waiters.  He's a far better defender, which they desperately need, at least as good an open shooter, and less of a head case.  He lacks Waiter's creativity, but that's something the Cavs now have in abundance (and the Knicks do not).  He doesn't need the ball.


I don't know why I'm proposing this, I actually like Shumpert a lot - just bored I guess.

Read the caption.... He's saying he's on pace to being one of the best shooters the game has ever seen.... Now i support jr but....... WHAT???? Lol maybe I'm confused but where does he see that in his numbers? He talking bout attempts? Lol

Saw a sopranos discussion earlier.. Does it bother anyone else they never addressed the Russian mob storyline after Paulie and Christopher failed on killing the Russian in the pine barrens?

@johneco. Waiters is a way better shooter than Shump, IMO.. Shump is a way better defender than Waiters, IMO... Waiters is a much better passer than Shump... And their both head cases ;)

@johneco  im not trading shumpert ... im def not trading him for waiters .... no way in hell I do a deal with the cavs to make them a better team

I think we need Shump's defense equally much though.

@knicksgirl35 you gotta come in with a chip on your shoulder and never let it come off basically , he had that Moxie in the Final Four no reason why it shouldn't translate , unless he thought his Job would be easy with Lebron there bailing him out lol

@OLDKNICK3  I just saw that.  Could have made $550,000, and opted to play in the D League for $25,000.

The kid really wants to do whatever it takes to be in the NBA.  Good for him!

Technically he's not wrong. 30th alltime in 3PM already after 10 years. Def could retire top 20. Also one of the highest percentage catch and shoot guys in the NBA somehow lol

Not really. It was pretty obvious he was dead.

@Sandro Guedes Wow! Was on the same page just before Melo re-signed. Didn't know whether to bother with any one player. Ready to burn my Amar'e Jersey.  So, I was on the NBA site customizing my own as well.

It WOULD be YOUR name on it...

Goes to show you're NOT a Knicks fan... Guedes is NOT a Knick player...

Like i said before you just like the logo and the colors...

J/K (not really though) nice jersey...

@BiggieTKB I didn't even watch the Awards show last night. I can't get into it anymore. I agree, people like Katy Perry have destroyed music.

Or were not resigning Shump next year...?

@brookdon  Like I said, I prefer Shump.  But I also don't want to lose him for nothing, and I was thinking about how Waiters doesn't really fit on the Cavs, and this occurred to me.

How was it obvious? He was seen running into the woods. He got away.

@johneco @brookdon  we don't have to lose him ... we sign our free agents first then we resign him to a 5 mill a year deal cant that happen since we have his rights?

He certainly does. The ongoing debate over how it ended supports that.

@sandro...i have one from 3 years ago that says "SHUMP!"(including the exclamation point)

greekfreak

@TkBK1ng. With the allowable % hikes for NBA contracts, Shump can ask for $6.5 mill... I don't think he deserves that, based on his stats getting worse every year. If he plays as we think or hope he can this year, then maybe

You never actually see the head explode. They've shown many head explosions with head shots. Christopher was bleeding and had a concussion so should in no way have been considered an infallible source. Russian absolutely could have gotten away.

@that3agoodpoint  I agree did you also see how he purposely took a picture with only "ONE EYE" IT REALLY PROVES HE'S A SATANIST WORSHIPPER! THAT PICTURE REPRESENTS THE "ALL SEEING EYE OF LUCIFER(HORUS)! Hehehehe!

But that's still bad for music. As a rock fan to get new music I pretty much have to do homework to find new music. I stopped doing homework 10 years ago so I'm pretty much left to the music I already like. And I'm not alone.

Digital is great but music was not meant to be like this.

@sandro...i agree with getting your own name on a jersey or a nickname...you never know when someone will be traded...ive been sweating out Shump being trade since i bought that jersey

@stillmatic...very true,but if you like music enough you can dig deep and find whats really great music and what is pure comercial crap
