Very slim chance. We'd probably have to give up Tyson and find someone to take Amare.

How about something closer to possible- you would do Felton and chandler for dragic and gortat right?

For financial reasons, yet. I don't think it necessarily makes us a better team but Dragic and Gortat combined make a little more than what Chandler does.

How is that relevant ? I'm pretty sure we would still be over the cap.

It's Dolan's money,not ours. I wouldn't do that trade. Dragic is probably better than Felton but Chandler is a much better defender than Gortat and a better fit to this team.

People keep saying "we're still over the cap" but cutting a salary in half still allows you more flexibility. Going forward, it's easier to trade two lower salary players than one huge contract...especially if said player gets exposed.

You have a point. But I still wouldn't do that trade. At least not if we have some success in the playoffs.

If we go out in the 1st round again then we can talk about trade scenarios for everyone.

Don't see PHX doing it, I'd sign up immediately.

PG situation is solid now and in future with Dragic, whom is vastly better than Felton.

With Gortat, he is capable of doing most of what Tyson does, definitely is better on ffense since he can step out and hit a jumper, although I think his defense is slightly worse, but comes off the books sooner.

Overall the team improves with this move, but can't see Phx having any part.

i dont get why everyone got so hyped about beating the thunder, like it was some miracle and now they all believe...

they forget that we went toe to toe with them in the first game and that without melo...

this time around we went over the top with melo

Gotta agree here. Can't see why they'd want to get older and less offensively talented for the sake of getting only marginally better defensively.

How to make Phoenix happy? Get them more capspace and/or the starting sg they want

What would you say to dragic, gortat, frye, shannon brown, and pick 14 (if they get it) for chandler, Felton, and SHUMPERT, j white? (Maybe swap picks 24 for 14?)


That would open up almost 5 mill more capspace for Phoenix and they have to see frye's 6 and browns 3.5 as wasted

I think they should know that they have to deal gortat now or start losing leverage. Chandler and Felton could remain tradable through the season into next.

How far would you go or not go w Phoenix (shumpert and picks 14&24)

13 in a row,first division title in many years

Now what ?
a) Rest key guys until the playoffs
b) Play them but only like 20 minutes per game
c) Play them the next few games but shut them down in the last 2 or 3.

Pick.

I agree. The same thing you said in the game thread I said earlier somewhere on the Knicks forum.

I'm really afraid we'll cool off when it matters the most. We started the season 18-5 and we were shooting lights out. After that we played mediocre at best for the next 40 games or so.
Then we started to play well and shoot lights out again.

We got to cool off sometimes and I'm afraid it will happen in the playoffs,and to be fair,the Celtics are probably the worst opponent in case that happens.
Not only you lose your confidence when you're missing the shots but they also play mental games and toy with your mind even more.

God,I hope we'll be able to sustain this play in the playoffs,at least in the 1st round.
But knowing Knicks luck,the opposite is bound to happen.
