As a Knicks fan, I personally don't get why we just lost Jamal Crawford, Mardy Collins, and Zach Randolph.
I know President Donnie Walsh wanted to get cap room for the big 2010 free agent class including King James, Chris Bosh, Amare Stoudemire, and D-Wade. But he didn't think about one thing.
What if the Knicks sign none of those free agents? These trades were risks that will probably come back to bite the Knicks this season and in the future.
To try to get you to come to Knick games this season, the Knicks have been saying how youthful their team is.
Cuttino Mobley (currently has a heart problem)- 33 years old
Tim Thomas- 31 years old
Al Harrington- 28 years old
They traded youth and got old.
Randolph in the games before being traded, was playing great, getting over 20 points and 15 rebounds.
So I guess his good job present was a plane ticket to Los Angeles. Same with Crawford. "Hey, you're averaging 19 PPG, how's Golden State?
The Knicks traded the two best players on their team for Mobley,Thomas, Harrington. All in the hope of getting big name players they may never get.
Maybe I'm confused, but I didn't and still don't get the point of these deals.
