You going for the oldest bench in the history of the league there or what. They wouldn’t make it through the season, starters would be player 40 minutes a night by January.


2.) 06 Apr 2019 17:07:52
Just run and run and run that team out of the gym.


3.) 06 Apr 2019 17:28:28
If they have Irving, Durant, and Davis they won’t have any more cap space so they will have to fill in the bench with savy veteran role players who know the game, are comfortable with their roles, won’t try to do too much, but have experience in the playoffs and know how to win games, and that are chasing a ring before they hang them up. All of those players still have some game left if they don’t play a ton of minutes and can be effective. Durant, Irving, Davis, Dotson, Robinson, and Trier provide the youth, athleticism, and fresh legs. The rest just come in, work hard, do their job, and help win games. You can’t have a strong bench when you have three stars. And stars win in this league.


4.) 06 Apr 2019 18:25:41
Did Shizzee change his name? Lol
Wow.


5.) 06 Apr 2019 20:04:58
Stars don't win in this league (see Lebron or A. Davis) . Winners become stars in this league. Why is the Greek Freak all of a sudden a star? Because the Bucks have been winning games ovee the last couple of years.


6.) 06 Apr 2019 21:40:55
Pels would take that deal

And as for the Knicks, their bench would gain sponsors from Depends, Life Alert and Geritol.


7.) 06 Apr 2019 22:01:13
Semantics Freeman. Lebron won for years and years. AD pulled an average team to the second round. Giannis (a Star) is taking his team to the best record in the NBA.

Is Giannis suddenly a star? He was an all star last year.


8.) 06 Apr 2019 23:02:13
Joeb I never changed my name
Dacman lmao that's funny
Dotson is ok. Insulting to start with that lineup. Dotson for A. Hawkins-58

You could have some bench vet players. Not all your vet minimum players have to be old.
J. Lamb for MLE. Most of these guys are vet minimum guys, others have to be sold on winning a title to take less.


Irving/ I. Thomas/ McConnell
Lamb/ N. Young/ Hawkins-58
Durant/ J. Green/ C. Brewer
Frye/ Vonleh/ Moute
Davis/ Robinson/ Fall-55.


9.) 06 Apr 2019 23:43:50
Milwaukee a playoff team last year? Giannis has been in the playoffs every year but one since he has been drafted. Lebron can't even say that.

Lebron's star is fading. Why? Not making the playoffs is a start. And the fact that the Lakers are looking for another star in order to be winning also lessens Lebron's stardom.

It kind of like that one year stardom of Isaiah Thomas in Boston.


10.) 07 Apr 2019 17:27:01
His star isn’t really fading that much, but if there is a reason, it’s age. He’s just not as good as he was.

I don’t think saying “we need two stars to win” lessens anyone’s stardom. You can’t win with just one player.


11.) 07 Apr 2019 19:34:22
So who is the other "star" on Milwaukee? Middleton? Remember we are talking about the team with the overall best record.

The arguement is more which is better: a team with one superstar and an above average supporting deep roster or a team with 2-3 stars and a below average supporting roster?

The Warriors have been dominating because they were more of the former than the latter.


12.) 08 Apr 2019 23:03:31
Historically, 2 stars is required to win a ring, 3 is recommended. One is rare (all I can think of is Dirk, who had a GREAT supporting cast of all stars past their prime) .


13.) 08 Apr 2019 23:06:56
Also, the warriors are great because of their top talent, not depth.

Also, Giannis has 0 rings.


14.) 09 Apr 2019 13:15:45
Try a young D-Wade and an aging Shaq/ A. Walker.

May be able to argue for a young Kawhi among the aging Spurs trio as well.

Knicks Offseason

Trade

Pelicans get Lance Thomas (Salary Reasons/Waive) Kevin Knox, Dennis Smith Jr, Frank Ntilikina, Mitchell Robinson, Alonso Trier, and the #1 Overall Pick

Knicks get Anthony Davis


Free Agency

Sign Kevin Durant to the Max

Sign Kyrie Irving to the Max


New York has their Big 3. Fill in the roster with savy veterans who are chasing a ring and will take the veteran's minimum like the Heat did.

1.) 22 Feb 2019 23:40:44
I don't think Boston or la can top that zion would body Tatum and kuz/ Ingram. La would have to do a 4 team trade involved lbj to top that.

And absolutely no bench at all. Team is going to get destroyed at the start of the 2nd and 4th quarters.


2.) 01 Feb 2019 16:44:27
Also, knicks won't be able to trade Dennis Smith with other players by the trade deadline. Mudiay?


3.) 01 Feb 2019 19:04:11
The Heat did it and won two championships and went to four straight finals. All they have to do is find useful veterans that are ring chasing on minimum deals to fill out the bench. Jamal Crawford, Melo, Zach Randolph, Tyson Chandler, Al Jefferson, David West, Vince Carter types of players. Veterans who don’t expect a lot of money or a big role but know how to win and are experienced in big games.


4.) 02 Feb 2019 12:04:19
1st. To trade Dennis Smith Jr. all they have to do is make it part of a second trade to the Pelicans for say a fake 2nd round pick.

2nd. When u get a big 3 like that other players take less to play with them so they could fill out the rest of the roster with minimum contracts and exceptions.

Going to take more than a second rounder to make trade #2 happen. Espcially since Knicks only own lower third 2nd rounders in 2019.

Knicks-Wizards Trade

Wizards get Courtney Lee, Frank Ntilikina, Lance Thomas, Damyean Dotson, a 2020 1st Round Draft Pick, and a 2020 2nd Round Draft Pick

Knicks get John Wall

John Wall could get it together but he's a locker room gun incident away from from irrelevance right now and NY should know better.

Knicks Next Two Offseasons

Hire David Griffin as new President of Basketball Operations

Fire Jeff Hornacek and Kurt Rambis

Hire Mark Jackson as new Head Coach


Trade

Bulls get Courtney Lee, Joakim Noah, and 2019 1st Round Draft Pick

Knicks get Dwayne Wade


Free Agency

Resign Derrick Rose for 1 year and $15 million as a stop gap.


2017-18 Starting Lineup

PG Rose
SG Wade
SF Melo
PF Porzingis
C Hernangomez

I think with Mark Jackson as the coach with his big New York personality and Dwayne Wade's leadership and championship pedigree this team will be vastly improve.


Then......2018-2019 Offseason


Melo declines his 2018-2019 player option.


Free Agency

Sign LeBron James for 2 years and $50 million

Sign Chris Paul for 2 years and $50 million

Resign Carmelo Anthony for 2 years and $30 million

Resign Dwayne Wade for 2 years and $20 million


2018-2019 Starting Lineup

PG Paul
SG Wade
SF James
PF Melo
C Porzingis


I know the speculation as of late is that LA is going to be LeBron's next destination but with Paul leaving the Clippers and the Lakers having many young pieces already in place with the intent of adding George, NY might be his best bet at making their Banana Boat Dream a Reality. LeBron has said numerous times that MSG is his favorite place to play so playing half your games at your favorite arena with your best friends is not a bad alternative. Not to mention, LeBron having a relationship with David Griffin.


I know this is highly unlikely and probably a pipe dream. But being a Knicks fan, pipe dreams are all I have because the reality sucks.

Knicks Future Blueprint

Fire Phil Jackson!

As crazy as it sounds, I don't think they're that far away from being a very good team. I think they need to get a guy running the team with modern conventional ideas that actually cares about the team. They just need some tweaking.

Fire Jeff Hornacek.

I like him but they need a firery personality that will hold his players accountable and command respect, effort, hustle, and defense.

Hire Marc Jackson as Head Coach.


Trade Lance Thomas for 2nd Round Draft Pick


Free Agency

Let Derrick Rose walk.

Sign Chris Paul to a Max Contract.

Resign Brandon Jennings for 2 years and $16 million

Roster

Starting Lineup

PG Paul
SG Lee
SF Melo
PF Porzingis
C Noah

Bench

PG Jennings (6th Man)
SG Holiday
SF Kuzminskas
PF O'Quinn
C Hernangomez
SG Baker
PF N'Dour
C Plumlee


Having Paul lead this team and having a coach that has passion and commands respect along with having the weight that is Phil Jackson off their shoulders could make all the difference.

You have a 1st rd pick to draft someone.


2.) 09 Feb 2017 01:33:26
The Knicks are a mess right now. Why would Paul want anything to do with them?


3.) 09 Feb 2017 07:56:43
Rumors are CP3 is going to re-sign with the Clippers.

Knicks Offseason

Afflalo and Williams decline their player options

Trade

Hawks get Jose Calderon, Kyle O'Quinn, Cleanthony Early, a future 1st round draft pick, and 2 future 2nd round draft picks

Knicks get Jeff Teague and Tim Hardaway Jr.

The Hawks let Schroeder take over as the starter and get a mentor for him while improve their perimeter shooting in Calderon. They get a nice big man off the bench in O'Quinn. Cleanthony Early goes somewhere where he can get a fresh start and finally get some playing time and reach his potential. And they get a few decent draft picks.

The Knicks get the point guard they need in Teague and get Tim Hardaway Jr. back where he thrived his rookie year in hopes of reviving his career.


Free Agency

Sign either Bradley Beal or DeMar DeRozan to a max contract

Sign Jamal Crawford for 2 years and $10 million

Sign Evan Turner for 2 years and $8 million

Sign Josh Smith for 1 year and $1 million

Sign Jason Terry for 1 year and $1 million

Sign Timofey Mozgov for 3 years and $18 million

Sign A'mare Stoudemire for 1 year and $2 million


2016 Roster

Starting Lineup

PG Teague
SG Beal/ DeRozan
SF Melo
PF Porzingis
C Lopez

Bench

SG Crawford (6th man)
C Mozgov
PF/ C Stoudemire
SF/ SG Turner
SG/ PG Terry
PF/ SF Smith
PG/ SG Wroten
PG/ SG Galloway
SG Hardaway Jr.
PG Grant


None of this will probably happen but what do you guys think?

I don’t think they’ve been a bad pair. I just don’t think they’ve had the right supporting cast around them. Other Eastern Conference teams have had more fire power over the years that has stood in there way. Pairing those two players with Durant, Porzingis, and Knox along with a few savy and still productive veterans off the bench that have playoff experience and I think this team is right there with the Celtics, Raptors, Sixers, and Bucks at the top of the East. Do you think the trade and free agent signings are realistic?

Btec, would you say it’s fair value other than the salaries not matching up? Also, would you take our Thomas or add a filler from Minnesota to make the salaries work?

Supercollider, I know you are a Melo hater but the fact that you said awesome for the Knicks means you think it's fair? Or does it mean you think there's no chance? I can't tell.
