    Default [Trade Rumor] Francis to the Knicks

    Apparently, the deal would be:

    get:
    Steve Francis
    Tony Battie (or Kelvin Cato)

    get:
    Jamal Crawford
    Anfernee Hardaway
    Trvor Ariza

    A Marbury/Francis backcourt?

    Discuss.

    Rim, please step away from the ledge.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    The knicks are nothing but a revolving door of players coming and going coming and going coming and going.

    Looks like Penny will end his career where it started.

    Rim has become so acquainted with the ledge, I wonder if he has named it yet ala David Harrison?

    I think Rim just got done scheduling a hunting trip with Cheney.

    Oh man, this HAS to happen. NY would immediately become my 2nd favorite team. I'd consider getting league pass to watch that group. Playing "the right way" would take on a whole new meaning.

    They need to swing a deal for Baron Davis.

    I think that could be a heck of a back court!

    I think Thomas is trying to see if he can make LB's head explode.

    I think that the main thing was to get Tony Battie or Cato in the deal. Also.....its pretty much known that Brown doesn't get along with Marbury.......so I'm guessing that Zeke is looking to move him before the trade deadline.

    But if this happens.....its another "Zeke getting another one of his type of players that don't fit in with Brown's coaching style" move.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I really can't beleive this. Marbury and Francis in the same back-court? I think Zeke is trying to make it so that the Knicks don't ever have a basketball franchise to speak of again. I guess he's building an all-nba ballhog squad.

    PG: Marbury
    SG: Francis
    SF: BDiddy
    PF: Kobe Bryant
    C: Gilbert Arenas

    I thought about putting him in there but having 4 me first PG's on the team would tear a hole into the universe causing the next apocolypse.

    I'm just mad that Jamal Crawford has to go. Can't they trade Q-Rich instead? Does that work salary cap wise? Imagine a starting backcourt of Francis and Marbury backed up by Nate Robinson and Jamal Crawford. I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about it. That team will be awesome on NBA Live 2007.

    They would need a steadying influence at SF, a lockerroom leader to pull them together, rather than BDiddy.

    Maybe Ron Artest.

    But what would the team do without Baron's 6 last minute turnovers when they are only down by 1?

    people are so hard on thomas and for what? look at the knicks' situation before he got there. highest payroll in the league, a bunch of old vets whom nobody thought could be traded for anything of value, the most boring team to watch in the league, and they were horrible. since thomas has gotten there, they still have the highest payroll and aren't very good, but they are selling tickets again, they've become a very young and improving team, and they are fun to watch. would i want guys like francis and marbury on my team? of course not, but they are a lot better than the weatherspoons, moochie norris, and wards of the world.

    If watching the Kicks is becoming more fun for you, and you see improvement, I think that you may need to seek some type of therapy.

    Drafting Frye was a surprisingly good move. Maybe the same with Lee.

    The other ten thousand moves have just been moves for the sake of making moves with no thought about fitting any pieces together.

    The Knicks will never be a contender again until they finally decide to rebuild, regardless of who's at the helm.

    again, look at what the knicks had prior to thomas. they at least have the pieces now to make moves. 3yrs ago they had a bunch of overpaid, 30+yr old, nobodies.
