Quote: Woodson on Anthony and win

“I thought our defense got real stingy down the stretch, then Melo closed it out.”

Knicks continue to show their organizations low IQ, if they are trying to trade shumpert, then what possessed them to play him knowing there's a slight chance of injury. Once again a dumb move that might cost them especially if OKC is or was serious about him.

Why do I have the feeling that if we get Collison and for some stupid reason we still have Felton that Felton will still start :/

OKC trying to trade for Haradway or SHumpert. 76ers trade Spencer Has to Cleveland

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting the Sacramento Kings are finding there isn't a market for Jimmer Fredette. Shocking. The former lottery pick could now be had for a second round pick.

If Shump was playing anywhere near what we thought this Rondo trade would be done already!

Note:

If we cant pull anything of significance before this deadline, how do we convince Melo that we can pull something off this offseason (same lack of assets) without starting the sentence, "Well if you can sit through another lottery bound season we can...."

Please tell me it is not just Collison and Barnes ...please...this is why making no move is sometimes best for the Knicks...

The win last night guaranteed woodson will get another extension.

Not bad! And you managed to keep THJR! And we get a real player in Green! Not likely Boston wants that pile of doo doo players you offered! I'm all in though even if we have to part with THJR which I don't want to but nothing in life is free!

This is a reply to sandro'a trade proposal!

ESPN- is reporting the Clippers are considering trading Darren Collison and Matt Barnes to Knicks for Raymond Felton and Iman Shumpert. I like the idea of Clippers adding a wing defender like Shumpert, but why do Knicks do this deal? Just to get out from under a horrible Felton contract? Horrible move for New York. 



The Knicks, according to Stein, won't deal Shumpert without either receiving a first-round pick in return or being able to unload Felton. 



First rounder for a guy with one leg??  Couldn't hurt to try.

I'm upset we haven't heard Chandler in any trade talks, his value to other teams would actually be pretty high IMO

Unless they are giving up Westbrook I'm not interested in OKC!

@Kiyan Carter  They are both hot garbage.  No offense, ray, I know you are going through things.  But, anyways.

@Kiyan Carter  Dude are u serious.  Vogel and Rivers have put him straight to the bench because he cant run an offense if his life depended on it.  We have Woodson.  Lmao. Do i need to go into more detail?

@Kiyan Carter ..and to it , i will gladly take barnes expiring contract/3 month rental for Felton any time aswell .

@Kenny Kaufman well THJR has played his value up to something I saw Shumpert becoming if that's a consolation. We never thought THJR would be this good.

@onewhoknix  See that's what I dont understand.  We're going to have to give up our so called "assets" sooner or later if we want to make Melo stay.

@Kenny Kaufman  This is the last year he's under contract and becomes a UFA.  Makes around 1.2 Million

@StraightShot Seems as if bullock is out of the equation..Matt barnes is in the convo..probably because of the shump injury last night.  Knicks are asking for a 1 rounder to be included..don't see it happening though.

@kneggyknik  Woodson not getting extension he is out here at the end of the year. He would have to win a ring for the Knicks before that happens

@MeloStat301 Just to get out from under a horrible Felton contract bytaking a Barnes contract that cuts into the 2015 cap? Only if they plan to move Barnes ASAP.

Watch Rivers and Paul turn Shumpert into a borderline All-Star.

That trade is totally in favor of the Clippers.

@MeloStat301 don't get it twisted Shump's best value is that he was a past first round pick. Felton is the worst point guard in the league and that aint an argument. Shumpert is coming off of an ACL injury and now an MCL in the same knee while producing career lows and showing no signed of improvement. We as Knicks fans need to stop acting like Shump is getting us a lot of value back.

That MCL (hate to see anyone hurt) 'sprain' was very unfortunate the day before deadline. Only chance now is to say he can be useful if he wasn't coached by an imbecile.

@brookdon not one inquiry, not one rumor. Even Melo has been in trade rumors lol

@brookdon  Chandler has been a complete no show in the last 2 playoffs.  Maybe teams are weary.

@rgm891 @Kenny Kaufman Seriously, I read differently somewhere else yesterday. The gist of it was that Barnes contract would cut into 2015 cap space. I'd be happier if what you say is true.

@Sandro @StraightShot its kind of funny. the clippers basically said no we kind of don't want to take Felton back and that guy Reggie Bullock that you wanted, we kind of want to replace him with Matt Barnes.

@Sandro @MeloStat301 Don't think so...you have to show and prove with the minutes you have...THJR..tyler..murry...produced with their minutes..i think he can be solid role player..borderline all star? A little much.

@Kiyan Carter  LMAOO. Go watch Darren Collison play on that clipper team.  He will be so bad here in NY.

@Mr.Boots @rgm891 @Kenny Kaufman  Wow you're right.  I am sorry.  Where I went to check was wrong. Apparently he signed a 3 yr 11 million dollar deal.  This past summer.
