FanPost

What do we have to offer?



Rank the Knicks assets from a free agent perspective; balance them with deficiencies. After catching up on all the fanposts from the past week, I was wondering how everyone else would rank the Knicks assets.

 

Assets (in no particular order):

1. DW - proven GM with experience and professionalism. Has a plan and sticks to it.

2. DA - "player's coach" who was part of the Redeem Team in the Olympics. Has a system that boosts your stats and gets you noticed.

3. Gallo - young, up and coming player that can shoot lights out, wants to get better, especially on defense, and is competitive (i.e. wants to win), and has balls of steel. Can be a future Dirk/Schrempf combo.

4. Chandler - young, defensive stud, that has improved jump shot each year, athletic as hell, though coming back from injury/surgery, plays multiple positions. Poor man's Matrix?

5. Cap Space - you can bring a friend

6. DWTDD - young point guard with defensive skills, has a decent shooting percentage, and willing to take big shots. A poor man's Mo Williams?

7. Bill Walker - athletic shooting guard with lost potential after injuries, regaining his mojo.

8. Eddy Curry's expiring contract

9. Sergio - just cause he's fun to watch. No better 12th man in the league.

Deficiencies (in no particular order):

1. NY Media - will destroy you if you F'up (see NBA Draft 2009). Will glorify you if you kick ass (see Yankees 2009).

2. Rebuilding Team - who knows what the future holds

3. DA rep as offensive coach, as stubbornly committed to his system - does he stress defense? can he win the big one?

4. Lot of needs - need a starting point guard, shooting guard, power forward, center. We kinda got the starting SF covered (Gallo). We have a great bench (TD as backup point, Walker as backup SG/SF, Chandler as backup SF/PF).

My thoughts would be to sign Lee as a power forward and Tyrus Thomas and/or Frye as center/backup PF and pick up Gay for the starting shooting guard role. Get the Earl of Barron as a backup center. Trade for a starting point guard using a combo of Curry/cash/DW's great grandchildren/Chandler's left nut/Coney Island/that stadium they are building in Brooklyn for some crappy NBA team across the Hudson/Jerry Seinfeld/Chandler's right nut/....

Your 2010 NYK:

Start: ??/Gay/Cock/Lee/Frye

Backup: TD/Walker/Chandler/Earl
