LOL. You crack a lot of jokes. You now lecturing on classy posting? That’s a real knee slapper alright. Guys shouldn’t start a game of ‘the dozens’ if they don’t want to hear their mama get dissed. Or tell other’s how to post with stats and get all whiny when it’s thrown back in their face. JJ’s just collateral damage, unfortunately. Peace.
if you feel the need to have your point validated by gloating about being right for one game.. that's cool.. but understand it isn't very tactful or classy
i like talking about my dumps and somehow got by for MONTHS with an avatar of chris bosh with man junk all over his face... im not classy either... but ive never denied it... and never got defensive about somebody else pointing it out
If you could make the trade all over again, would you have traded the pick for Anthony Randolph instead?
I think sota wouldve been all over that 1st round pick from Miami.
I think right now JJ is more of a fit since Weems is not really playing that well and Kleiza is injured, but i think in the long term Randolph wouldve been a better addition. 2 years younger than JJ with 4 yrs experience in the league. Specially on a wing-loaded draft, we couldve easily gotten a good wing player.
What do you guys think?
Anthony Randolph. His ceiling is a LOT higher. He *could* turn into something special with time.
He is a 4, I think we are pretty set there with Amir and Davis, better to roll the dice on James.
I've always liked him but he's a bit of a headcase. If we had a more respected/"winning culture" type coach and team Id be all over getting him but I don't think it'd be good for the team as is.
LOL say word, Anthony Randolph is ONLY 21? haha, damn, I swear, he looked really old to me. He would've been a good pick up, but, at nearly 7 ft he's kind of big to play a small forward. I think with proper training JJ can evolve into exactly what we need him to be, which is a glue guy. I just hope we can teach him to make the corner three like Bruce Bowen.
The Knicks would rather play Jerred Jeffries than Randolph.
Thats saying something, as they both have similar body/frame and skillset.
Basically I hope this is our starting lineup next year:
I dont have the articles to back this up, but i know D'Antoni has had issues with pretty much everybody, from players, to management to personnel.
i also think it was a tough situation for Randolph, if you know youre one of the highly touted up and comers in the league, and the coach gives you 5 mins a game then i would probably pout too. i mean common, its not the like the knicks are loaded with talent. he should at least be backing up amare or playing over turiaf.
I thought New York stole Anthony Randolph away from the Warriors, where I blamed his lack of play on Don Nelson's insanity. After another half season of him not playing, I really think it's him. Anthony Randolph is the perfect example of the high skilled player who never seems to "get it" and is constantly gambled on by GMs looking for a gamble. Benoit Benjamin played 14 seasons in the NBA, for 9 teams and only 2 of those teams made the playoffs. Bad teams usually gamble on these types of players because you have to be desperate to take on guys like this. Minnesota already has Randolph, Beasley and Milicic. That's why they're my favourite to eventually trade for Bargnani. Bargnani has a better attitude than a lot of those guys, but he probably will never "get it".
