    1. Not take the easy way out and try to earn a championship.

    2. Stop being a coward and join a dunk contest. He doesn't join bc he knows he won't win or live up to Jordan's dunks.

    3. Stop passing up on game winning shots to make the "extra" pass to deflect blame off yourself.

    4. Stop traveling.

    5. Don't quit on your team in game 5.

    Should I continue?

      Just about the opposite of everything he did.

        To be fair we were being run by incompetent fools for most of the 2000's. I was skeptical of any player that actually thought it was a good idea to join those awful awful knicks teams, especially since players had to know that Isiah or Layden would get hosed in the trades for them leaving them with an even shittier team to try and accomplish anything with.

          LeBron has made a ton of clutch shots. Did you want to stay with the Cavs? a team that never surrounded him talent, the lakers surrounded Kobe with talent and the bulls did the same with the bulls.

          The only thing I agree with you is on the dunk contest.

            Agreed, and that's exactly what I was getting at. LT commented that the Knicks were appealing in the 00s and I said it was mostly because it was media hyping NY and not because of the franchise or how much money they have.

            The point was even the biggest market teams with the most money aren't going to automatically be appealing if they are run by a bunch of morons and are putting out some terrible teams on the court.

              I didn't mean it how it reads I should have put a period in between the word appealing and even in the 200's. LT made a grammatical error.

                The difference is Kobe and Jordan didn't choose to team up with top tier players via free agency. They stuck with their building franchises.

                I'm not saying Lebron should or shouldn't have stuck with the Cavs because they were run idiotically, but you can't compare what Lebron chose to do with Jordan and Kobe sticking with one team and letting the franchise build around them.

                  Fair enough. I still remember the post Jordan era where the Bulls were an absolute joke, and all we brought in were overpaid past their prime guys. It was god awful.

                  Also, going back to one of bbd's comments, I forget the exact number but on like sportscenter or NBA live a while ago they said something like 5 games this year someone other than the big 3 on the Heat has taken a late, game deciding shot. How does that happen, especially when I've seen 2 or 3 times when Lebron could have taken an mostly open shot but didn't.

                  • Carmelo Anthony has informed people close to him that he will not sign an extension with the Nets, according to sources.

                        While I agree with you, I think LT did have a point when mentioning how even through that terrible management and atrocious cap management we still were financially successful, pointing to our fanbase and ability to capitalize on that fan base, something players are certainly a part of which helps a player bring on additional funds that he may not on a smaller team that has less of a ridiculous innate market. I think...

                        Anyways we're finally not being run by morons, i understand it's only been 3 years but can people start cutting donnie some slack, this isn't the same fuctard running the show and this roster finally has some appeal to it since it's not infest with overpaid incompetent "veterans" and actually already has 1 star and some really talented 22 and 23 year olds. I don't fault anybody for not wanting to be affiliated with the mess we used to be, hell I didn't even watch many of our games because of how pathetically the franchise had collapsed once Houston was gone, as he was the last of my childhood heroes on the knicks.

                          This is what I've felt all along and why I've been so opposed to this trade. If that's really the case then I'd hate to give up what Denver's asking for.

                          • A good comparison for the Knicks is the Maple Leafs.

                              yep, isiah and burke have done surprisingly similar damage, although kessel's a far better player, in a league that is more about depth, than anyone the knicks have brought in before Walsh.
