    Default Knicks wanted Amare-Bargs swap in February

    http://www.hoopsrumors.com/2012/12/k...toudemire.html

    Not sure if this has been posted previously, but mods can delete/move if needed.

    I'm kinda surprised they wanted Bargs, but considering how well he was playing at the time, it makes sense that they were interested.

    Thoughts? anyone happy/disappointed this didn't happen?

    As much as I want Bargnani gone, I would not want Amar'e.

    I love it!

    I would be fun to read posts about Amar'e's defensive acumen.. A thread titled "Where are Thou?" showing clips of Amar'e trying to find a player to guard would be very entertaining.

    So we trade Bargs for what is perhaps the worst big man defender in the league? Sounds like something we'd do...

    I think I'd sooner trade Bargs for both Stoudamire's than Stoudemire, if you catch my drift.

    I guess it would have been like trading for Jermaine O'Neal, let's say, in 2008... Oh wait we did it.

    Amar'e: So kids.. see this thing? With the extinguisher inside? Don't punch that.
    JV: Okay...
    Amar'e: Cuz your hand will, like, fall off.
    Davis: Got it.
    Amar'e: My work here is done.

    Defense aside I think he would play really well with Calderon.

    So nice to see the collective voice of reason here. No sense getting rid of our problem by taking on a bigger problem. We've tried that.

    He can't possibly be a worse help defender than bargnani

    From the NY Times article,

    This past summer, the Knicks offered Stoudemire to nearly every team in the league — “available for free,” as one rival executive put it. But they found no takers because of his diminished production, his health and his contract, which has three years and $65 million remaining (counting this season) and which is uninsured against a career-ending knee injury.
    In February, the Knicks wanted to send Stoudemire to Toronto in a deal for Andrea Bargnani, a person briefed on the discussion said. But the proposal was vetoed by James L. Dolan, the Garden chairman, before it ever reached the Raptors

    Ouch......

    He really is, seriously Amare has got to be one of the worst defenders ever in the NBA meaning he doesn't try. I guess thats the D'antoni system at work hes been with it twice from PHX to NY. He makes Bargnani look like Lebron James on D.

    They are basically the same player but one guy stays on the perimeter and the other goes inside. Neither defends and why dump Bargs for a guy who is injured more than him, and is paid more for a longer time. Bargs has to go, but not if it means bringing Amare back.
