I havent seen him play to say he is useless or not.


I wonder if the Knicks are in the Ben Gordon sweepstakes.

Ben Gordon would be nice but I wonder what we would have to give up for him.

His deal isn't the only bad one they got...Tyrus makes over 8 mil himself.

Not too many teams have 20 mil tied into 2 bonafide bench players.

I cant for the life of me understand why Tyrus Thomas hasn't been amnestied. He's getting 9 mill per for 3 more years

He's like the poster child for it. Gordon has this year and a player option for next year for 13 mil. We'd have to let go Amare of Tyson to get him

Yes thats why its complicated but the Knicks are in desperate need of a SG. Considering they arent going to move Copeland or James White into the rotation.

The Knicks cant move Melo into his natural position considering the Knicks have only 2 competent bigs.

Amnestying him means they still have to pay him, no way cheapskate Jordan does that.

They dont have a high salary, and with the new rules, they have to maintain a certain salary floor as a team.

He's ironically helpoing them in that respect.

The only reason why Ben Gordon is on the block is because he is disruptive.

I'd bet Jordan would take an Amare of Ben Gordon/Tyrus swap.

He'd actually save a few dollars in the beginning.

I dont like that kind of deal without getting Mullens in the deal.

Yeah I agree but just for arguments sake I was saying Mullens would be a welcomed addition in that trade.

If you don't like Amare's defense, you'll absolutely hate Byron Mullens. I have League Pass. I watch the Bobcats more than any team not names the Knicks. Mullens plays ZERO defense. He doesn't even try. He's pretty good offensively though.

Oh this is purely hypothetical but yeah I know he doesnt but his offensive game is pretty good (range!) and he can rebound and he can block shots.

I'm a big Kemba Walker fan. He's probably my favorite PG in the league. Plus, he went to UCONN. I also have been following Kidd Gilchrist since he was a sophomore in HS. He looks and plays like my cousin. They're the same height and everything. He plays in the Philippines.

But all in all, I'm always a sucker for good PG play so regardless of the team, I lik to watch exciting pgs. Not for nothing, if the Bobcats weren't so bad, Kemba would be an allstar. He's having an excellent year but you wouldn't know it because theyre never on national tv, nor do they get any press. I also love Kyrie Irvings game. I not as big a fan because he's from Duke (I hate Duke lol) but mark my words...he'll be in the conversation for best pg in the league VERY soon. He's already in my top 5.
