Default Allan Houston Ends Comeback W/ Knicks

Quote:
NEW YORK, October 20, 2007 – New York Knickerbockers guard Allan Houston has decided to end his comeback with the team.
"After much consideration, I have decided to end my comeback with the Knicks,” Houston said. “While my body and my knees, in particular, feel fine, I know what is required for me to be truly effective in the NBA again, and it involves a timing and progression that would not be fair to Isiah and the Knicks right now. With the season opening less than two weeks away, I think it is best for the team to move on without me. I appreciate the opportunity that Isiah and the Knicks have given me, and I wish the team nothing but success."

I think he should have signed with the Nets in the first place.

Should have never flirted with coming back to begin with. Stay an NBA analyst. Its not much more he can offer a team besides stealing time and money and playing less of what he used to be.

the irony.


Houston waited too long. yeah yeah he had a baby due and it was the right call to stay with his wife.

but had HOuston accepted the Nets offer in time, they would likely have given him a spot on the roster... despite the fact Williams broke his foot and they would need another PG... in which case Robert Hite would be dropped (Nets eat up a small portion of Hite's partially guaranteed contract) and Houston given a chance.

knicks basically gave him the "we'll let you save face" treatment.

AKA he was going to be cut this week just like Penny Hardaway and Stacey Augmon

LOL @ Allan. He knew he wasn't gonna be able to make the team, so he says he is ending it rather than being cut. I probably would have done the same thing in his situation. That was a very short comeback, only lasted 8 days or so. : I hope the Knicks make the right decision by keeping that last man on the roster - probably Fred Jones.

He's a very average to below average analyst IMO. But let's not forget how good he actually was as a player! A 20-point scorer with 50+ point games, a 2-time All-Star, an NBA Conference champion, and one of the best shooters in the history of the league! Let's give respect to Allan Houston.

Cavaliers can hire him as one of the teams assistant coaches, and maybe teach Larry Hughes on how to shoot consistently.
