I haven't gone through all 21 pages so this might be said already, but MAN it's too bad Camby doesn't want to accept a Magloire type role on the team. JV could learn some stuff from this guy.

I can honestly say that I cannot remember the last time I sued the word "Storied" in a sentence. Barg used it in his above tweet to describe the New York Knicks Organization. Maybe he writes better than he speaks. But if he is not the one writing the Tweets in English, how are we to believe him when he says thank you to the Raps fans for supporting him for the past seven years? )
Just me adding my two cents!
Maybe he uses a publicist for the "important" tweets...

I think the answer is no.
I implore you all to read the Knicks fans comments lol its pretty funny NY knows what he is at least the fan base does anyway lol.

I see him as complete outcast in that team.the only story you'll be adding is a cautionary tale on thinking you can save lazy reclamation projects
Poor bastard lol the guy can't catch a break
Well...you might be right, but either of us are NBA players so we don't really know. Magloire was useful when he was here in spurts and in getting in guy's faces. Camby used to be one of the best defensive players in the league. When you have a guy like that giving you tips and encouraging you everyday that's pretty awesome.
This is essentially what I thought on first hearing the rumblings.Haberstroh: Bad fit. Can't defend? Check. Shot-taker, not a shot-maker? Check. Expensive? Check. Poor health record? Check. On second thought, maybe he's actually tailor-made to play for the Knicks.
Prediction: Bargnani starts the season on fire, Knicks fans lose their minds because that's how they roll. Then Bargnani comes down to earth and he wishes he was still dealing all those "cool headed" Raptors fans. LOL
One person's opinion:
Camby only wants to play for a 'contending' team.Charlie
The New York Knicks seemed to get the best of the Raptors in the Andrei Bargnani trade. The Knicks got a 7-footer who averaged 19.5 a game only two years ago giving them a stretch four who can come off the bench and score some points. The first round pick going to Toronto will be late given the Nuggets right to swap picks. Who do you think got the best of the NYC / Raptors trade and why?
Both sides got exactly what they wanted.
Raptors are likely flipping Camby to another team, so they dump Barg’s contract money off on New York and get a draft pick for a guy they wanted gone. We’ll see what they get for Camby, maybe another young piece
What contenders would want Camby at $4.38M?
First of all, who are the contenders?
MIA, IND, CHI, BKN, LAC, SAS, OKC, MEM
Joel Anthony, 2nd rd pick for Camby
Miami gets to drop Anthony's player option for 2014-15 ($3.8M)
Toronto gets nothing but the pick which is likely late 50's/60 so don't see it happening
Gerald Green, 2nd rd pick
Indiana were looking to ship Green out and save $2.5M next season if they choose to waive Camby. 3rd string C insurance policy.
Toronto gets nothing but the pick but likely late 50's so don't see it happening.
Hamilton (guaranteed for $1M in '13-14), Teague/2nd rd pick/Murphy
Chicago gets 3rd string insurance behind Nazr who just re-upped and Noah. They having been peddling Rip for a long time.
Toronto waives Hamilton and saves $3.3M this season plus $1M next and gets a young asset.
(Chicago are so cheap though I doubt they ever consider it once they realize they are adding money in the end).
Teletovic and Plumbee/Taylor
Brooklyn gets major assistance in becoming oldest team ever and can take another shot at the Knicks in the ongoing pissing match.
Toronto gets another three point shooter (he is essentially Novak) and a young asset.
Sure soemthing is there but I don't see it unless it is Camby (or Novak) for Bledsoe and DD for Butler (2 separate deals). Bullock is a guy I'd be interested in too.
Not seeing anything.
Perkins makes too much money to make anything work... well at least for 2 months.
In the end if Camby really wants to play for a contender he'll give up money and Toronto can buy him out.

Basketball has clear winners every night --except at the draft, which is all homework, politics and chance.
I'd add Houston and GSW to the mix of 'contenders'.
Camby for White & Houston's 2014 2nd rounder (via NY)?
Camby for S&T with Landry?
The guy is gone leave him be for fucks sakes!!!!! What are you guys gonna complain about when he's gone?
he uses google translate...
