For those of you throwing things around your living room, when i was small and having a fit the Knicks lost my dad told me "Never get that upset over a game you aren't getting paid to play." So take a deep breath, drink some beers, get some sympathetic grope from some (strange or familiar) person and take note that for the first time since I've been an ISH member, the Knicks season ended painfully, but not without promise.
Melo needs more help, we need to go out and get some. At the very least keep all our assets and hope someone shakes lose during the offseason. I like JR, he's stupid but not afraid. Try to keep Copeland, also stupid and not afraid. Shump looks like a star in the making. Our bigs, they suck. We need youth and size. Camby, Kidd, not sure what to do with them. I'd like Kenyon back (again stupid and not afraid). Chandler is a topic for another day, and Amare is unfortunately not a topic that anything can be done about.
So don't rant and rave and write 3,000 words about what the Knicks must do tonight..save that for when you are calmer. And don't be too upset because sports end 99% of the time with your team losing. That's just how it is.
See ya soon...i doubt i post much in the rest of the playoffs, it's pretty horrendous going forward. I am off to play Monster Hunter Online while drunk.
JR at worst is a trade chip. We don't have flexibility to do anything. Keep everyone and trade whoever you need to but you can't just toss away players. Capped out teams can use salary, even bad salary to do things and we are capped out.
we need an athletic 2 who isnt afraid to drive, thats what makes wade and lebron so effective, i had high hopes when i saw jr doing what he was doing late in the season but that dissapeared, shumpert isnt there yet, but we need a now guy until shumpert gets there
we need to get melo back at sf and have a complimentary guy at pf that can board and give chandler away for picks
The first thing we should do is trade Tyson for some valuable pieces while we still can. Get rid of Kidd,Camby,White and get some players who can actually play.
I think we should re-sign J.R. because we can't get anyone better but after this playoff performance I won't be too sad if he's gone.
