Default Exit Interviews

How would you handle the exit meetings with each player on the team? Please be real without yourself too, you're not going to fist fight Tyson Chandler or made lewd comments about Jason Kidd's momma.

What would you say to each guy?

I'd personally tell Shump "it's ok youngin' you'll get at it next season".

I definitely want to know wtf this means??

He was basically saying they came out playing well and people began expecting them to win and they didn't finish the job.

more like the knicks have a history of inconsistency, and they dont plan on changing from that so dont expect to always see great play.

Raymond Felton Lose some weight and get your endurance up. Even though you have a personal chef something just isnt right. (Reality I have no idea what they would say to him maybe they would look to upgrade the position)

Pablo Prigioni You had a nice year enjoy Europe

Jason Kidd Please retire. (Reality Woody wants him back)

J.R. Smith You showed some improvement in on court behavior and play. Your role will be determined by your further commitment to basketball. (Reality we like you so much for the cheap that we willing to take your scrubby a$$ brother)

James White who?

Iman Shumpert Get healthy and work on your offensive game PLEASE! (Reality be aggressive on the offensive end)

Steve Novak You have to make more strides on defense and putting the ball on the floor. I would try to trade you for almost anything. (Reality he most likely wont be traded.)

Quentin Richardson Peace

Carmelo Anthony As much as we depend on your offensive game. You have to step up and be a more vocal leader. I will try to move you back to SF. Work on your team play this summer. Learn to be more like Durant and LBJ instead of Rudy Gay. (Reality We love you Melo see you next year)

Amare Stoudemire Get healthy. You will be our 20 minute 20 million dollar anchor. I will try to trade you for anything. (Reality get healthy and go back to Hakeem)

Chris Copeland We love your offense. We really dont have a position for you at the moment. I like you at the SF/PF. Get your feet better on defense and learn the defensive assignments. (Reality you may or may not be back with the team)

Kenyon Martin I want you back prepare to play a full season! (Reality not sure if you are coming back because you play defense and rebound)

Tyson Chandler Get healthy go to Hakeem. I will actually try to find you a real power forward and defender. You cant win down low alone. (Reality you will get no help you will continue to see Camby and Melo down low.)

Marcus Camby Please retire (Reality get healthy and prepare for next season)

Earl Barron I wish you could stay. (Reality you wont be on the roster unless someone is injured.

I really dont believe in the Knicks improving or developing players so I have no idea what they would say in that regard. This is why they love being a veteran laden team because they are a lazy organization.

Raymond Felton - You had a nice season. Now let's go to the nearest donut shop.

Pablo Prigioni - Stay with us. Don't go back to Europe.

Iman Shumpert - You had an excellent playoffs. Keep up the good work and try to improve your offensive game,specifically getting to the rim and finishing.

Carmelo Anthony - You're one hell of a scorer but try to improve your all-around game. Also try to gain some explosiveness,you need to finish at the rim better.

Tyson Chandler - GTFO

Chris Copeland - Stay with us and improve your defense.

Jason Kidd - Go back to Dallas and take Tyson with you.

Kenyon Martin - Work hard this off-season,we'll need you.

Steve Novak - stop complaining about not getting minutes when all you can do is shoot. Learn how to play at least a little bit of defense and how to put the ball on the floor before saying anything.

Quentin Richardson - Sup bro ?

J.R.Smith - Let's give Tina and Jill the pipe.

Amare Stoudemire - Enjoy in your 100 million dollars.

James White - Wait,you're still on the team ?

Marcus Camby - you had a nice career,now retire

Earl Barron - Work hard over the summer,we'll probably cut you so you'll need to find a new team

Here's my comments for the guys...


Raymond Felton - No playing ball with the family in SC this summer. You need to rest some of the bumps and bruises then work with a trainer. You're excellent when your weight is down, and just ok when it is up. Be excellent, not just ok.


Pablo Prigioni - You need to get stronger. You got shoved around too easily this season.

Iman Shumpert - Got job coming back from the injury. Watch a lot of Tony Allen in the remainer of the playoffs. He is the poor man's version of what you can become. You have the same sort of defensive upside he does but better "ball skills" offensively.

Carmelo Anthony - You need to get back to being the inside-outside threat you are supposed to be. I know there are some things interfering with it but still. Look at how Paul Pierce was able to

Tyson Chandler - We need better from you. We don't need more but we do need better.Offensively we need you to be like Robert Parrish was in his Celtic days. Stay out the way, set good screens, and get a good post seal for an easy score when your defender is half-assing it against you. Defensively, stop relying on athleticism and start playing smarter. Marc Gasol isn't great because of his athleticism, he's a great defender because he sees the action and gets there early.

Chris Copeland - You were a pleasant surprise. I know everyone is going to tell you to work on a million things this summer, ignore them. They are idiots who will stunt your career. The media talks about the stars but in reality this league is all about the specialist. Your best bet would be focusing on becoming a Defensive Sniper. It's the role that kept Bruce Bowen in the league. Focus on becoming a dead-eye from three-point range, especially in the corners. If you can develop the ability to attack defenders off the bounce when they close out you will get a Stephen Jackson-esque payday. Probably not from us cause we're capped out. *Insert mutual laughter* Defensively just defend smarter. Don't try and smother guys using ahtletic ability cause that fades over time. Defend intelligently a la Shane Battier. That guy couldn't jump over a deck of cards or out run a sloth but he was the most effective defender in the game for years.


Jason Kidd - Thanks for your hard work this year, and for entertaining the league for almost two decades. If you agree with us that it is in your best interest to retire we'd like to give you a public relations position with the team.

Kenyon Martin - We had no clue you would be as important to this team as you ended up being. We want you here but we need better decision making and leadership from you.

Steve Novak - Until we start getting a consistent defensive effort from you there is no space for you on this club. We don't expect you to become a lights out defender or rebounder but we do expect effort.

Quentin Richardson - Sorry we couldn't get you to the Finals. Watch after Shump when you guys get to Chicago. That kid has the potential to be an excellent player but it is clear he has a follower streak in him fighting his leadership potential.

J.R.Smith - Congratulations on 6th Man of the Year. Kobe Bryant can be a hardass but we know you'll enjoy being a Laker.

Amare Stoudemire - Contact Ganon Baker. This summer work exclusively from the post-up "kill boxes." It's Ganon's term so he'll explain. Also be the leader you've shown glimpses of being. Invite Carmelo and Tyson out so you guys can get on the same page. This franchise will literally live or die by how effective the three of you become as a trio.

James White - Appreciate your hardwork this season. If you work on your spot-up J from range and defense you can stick in this league.

Marcus Camby - Sad to have this season play out how it did. Once you file the retirement papers we'll have a PR position ready for you.

Earl Barron - we won't have room for you here but Miami will be looking for another big guy soon. We'll give you a good review when they contact us.
