New York Knicks v Miami Heat - Game Five

Knicks have three of the ten worst contracts in NBA

J.R. Smith, Andrea Bargnani and Amar’e Stoudemire are three of the worst ten contracts in the NBA, according to Bill Simmons.

Smith’s deal checks in at No. 8, Bargnani at No. 3 and Amar’e takes the top (bottom?) spot on the list.

“For Knicks fans, he’s simply The Broken-Down Guy We Got That Summer When We Thought We Were Getting LeBron,” Simmons said of Stoudemire.

Between the three players, the Knicks owe them over $86 million over the next three seasons.

Across town, the Nets also have three of the worst deals in the NBA.

If the Knicks are NOT talking about trading Tyson Chandler...then they are not serious about making the playoffs this year. 

Chandler is useless to us this year....matter fact he's just useless.

Patty Mills is an unrestricted free agent after this season, he would definitely be worth a look, definitely an upgrade from Felton, and a plus is he have received perhaps the best coaching a point guard can receive, if from the best coach in the NBA!

Why can't we do some kind of deal with LAC and Boston to get Rondo here, Collison to Boston, and something the Clips get Felton, Timmy.  Maybe throw Jamal Crawford in there and bring him back home to NY?  I'm bored.  Don't mind me.

Just to let everyone know this can't be a 3 team trade with Bos because lac and bos can't make a deal until July

YES

According to Yahoo! Sports, the Clippers and Knicks are discussing a trade which would send a package including Darren Collison to New York in exchange for Iman Shumpert and Raymond Felton.

The Clippers have been "receptive to listening to a potential deal" which doesn't mean that anything will come of these talks, but it's an interesting trade rumor nonetheless. Collison's stock would surge if he took over the full-time PG job in New York, and if nothing else this cements the notion that Felton and Shumpert are being heavily shopped around the league.

You guys enjoy the rest of your day, I'll be tuning in and out to see what happens, best thing I could say is that I hope the firing of Glen for Mills ends up being the best thing the knicks ever did.

Well got to give it to the knicks as long as they don't trade melo, THjr or a future pick and pull of a trade like JLin or any other pg for that matter, then it would be a good trade indeed.

Being a fanatical Knicks fan is a full time job on its own.  Man.  This stuff is crazy.

*BREAKING NEWS* 

Clyde Frazier retires upon hearing the news of JLin, says the only way he will return if and only if they sign him to a 5 year 50mil contract to play pg.

Well if they do get Jlin back, then I hope him and melo takes all the way to the finals, hell if the organization wants to make their fans look stupid then do it with a championship.

I can just see the headlines "Crazy Knicks fan attempts to kill Dolan with a Cablevision TV Box after Lin trade"

@Pevi Levi Not necessarily true.  They could tie up future cap space with a sub-par player.

@thatsagoodpoint  It has to be part of a bigger deal.  I can't see how the Knicks would do that.  Dolan is on cloud nine but man he's not this stupid.

@Pevi Levi  Dude Jeremy Lin's defense is atrocious.

@barnaby87  That would be totally worth it.  I would pay to see that

Shump has never been a good shooter. I don't know why people think he will be with a good PG. Nowhere in his career, including college, has he ever shot well. It won't happen in this stage of the NBA.

@Sandro @Seth Nadler Sterling gets off the phone with Dolan: 'he can't possibly be THAT stupid can he??'

It's not happening unless 3 team trade

@Buck50 I'm not saying he wasn't an exciting player or that we shouldn't have kept him to let him learn from JKidd just that to trade for him NOW 18 months after we let him go for nothing would be one of the dumbest and most idiotic things we could do. I would retire from ever watching the NBA again and just assume LeBron wins all the rings.

@Buck50  giving up assets to bring home Jeremy Lin.  You know how crazy that sounds

@rgm891 so is the rest of the teams, but his offense and play making is on a different level then feltons.

We have to face it, we'll never be a successful franchise as long as Dolan's running the show

@Jesse Brand did say any pg for that matter, just saying rondo falls into the any. : )

@SuperDuper @kneggyknik @Seth Nadler  Playoffs last year.  Texas Trip.  Even when he first came back from the ACL injury.  Dude had 9 points immediately against Detroit.  The kid can shoot. 


His ball handling is his even bigger issue

@Jesse Brand  Good stuff man.  Rondo is the only hope we have at this point.
