    Was just thinking if this is true:

    BC trades for Marion
    trades for Barbosa
    sets up a trade for Diaw (which was axed by Jordan)
    Inquires about Stoudemire
    Attempts to sign Nash as a FA

    anyone else seeing a trend?

    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 (who would not have made the deal anyway, team officials there said).

    Who would know those players better than BC though? You don't always know what you get when trading for a player. BC knows those guys better those most. Just saying.

    I always did find that the teams set up was BC trying to always turn us into the PHX suns 2.0 especially when Triano was coaching, he hired Casey for a defensive identity but start of this year made him move away from it for a "up tempo style" which isn't casey ball at all. BC's mentality is score score score its more exciting to win games like that be fast and exciting! that doesn't win many games.

    It's actually quite interesting as once Steve Kerr became the GM of the Suns, they brought in Shaq (who was the opposite of run and gun) to help on the defensive end. I think more GM's understand that its defense first, offense second - but I'm not sure if Bryan has figured that out yet.

    The Suns were exciting but they never got past the conference finals and fizzled once they got rid of D'Antoni.

    Actually to Bryan's credit he did bring in guys that were defensive minded once Casey took over - JJ, Pietrus, Fields, Lowry, McGuire are all defensive guys. I guess it would mean more if he had traded Bargnani already.
