I could care less about his brother.

I want the Knicks to keep JR, unless there an opinion out there for the hole at SG.

I was comparing OJ to JR, not his brother.

I'd rather do this sign and trade to get Kidd, and keep those pieces to see if his price falls, which it may, since teams won't have his money.

OJ isn't that much of an upgrade over JR, imo.

Sign JR's brother, keep him on the end of the bench, and bring back JR for the non bird exception.

Somehow convince Camby to come for the mini mle.

This is what I'm referring to. If Jonny Flynn doesn't belong in the league as you say, Chris Smith shouldnt even be in the D-League.

I'm willing to bet the only reason his brother is even being considered is to sign JR.

Whether he belongs is irrelevant.

Yea but that's a roster spot on a team who's starting sg will be out until @ least January. So essentially, he could be our backup sg.

It's no wonder people say we have an awful fan base.

This....exactly this!

Jordan is a project. He's also a 7 footer who's athletic in a league devoid of big men. A lot different from a sg who isn't a gr8 shooter and wasn't even the 6th best player on his college team. That being said, if we got rid of Jordan, I wouldn't blink an eye.

I want him gone because he's a loser. He could be the nicest guy in the world.

I only care about winning. I check sentimentality at the door.

I didn't, if it meant matching what Toronto was paying him.

In other words, your hate for Melo really isnt basketball related. Glad thats been put out there. Makes it a lot easier to ignore lol.

If somehow the Lin situation falls through, or we just come to our senses last minute, Jerryd Bayless is a very intriguing option. Ive always liked his game.

No, you misread. It's entirely basketball related. That's why I said he could be a really nice guy.

Bayless has never really found a home in the NBA. Interest now seems tepid at best.

What's he good at?
