About a week old news, but just found it now.


The Knicks havenít exactly had the best summerótheir biggest free-agent signing was Metta World Peace, and they spent about $18 million to bring back JR Smith, who had knee surgery immediately following the inking of his deal. And hereís another negative piece of news: up-and-coming guard Iman Shumpert is reportedly unhappy with the franchiseís direction, according to the Daily News: ďI guess the only question is if Metta expires before Shumpert, one of the few Knicks who has value. Dolan is reportedly upset that Shumpert wasnít interested in working with the summer league team and wants to trade him. Shumpert, Iíve heard, isnít too crazy about the moves the Knicks have made, which could further stunt his development.Ē

Curious why stuff like this from NY goes unnoticed, but if a star in say...Minnesota said something like this, everyone would think an offer of Kris Humphries for him would be fair.

But I'm curious, why do you continue to bad mouth the Pistons? As a 50 win team why do you even consider us a threat? I'm not saying that the Knicks are a bad team, I just simply don't like the way the roster is constructed, and I can't blame Shumpert for wanting out when you guys just resigned your starting 2 guard.

Smith is their 6th man, stop dissing New York. I'm not even close to a Knicks fan but is tiresome to keep reading your diss comments about other franchises when yours is crap.

So does anyone blame Shumpert for wanting out? I don't understand their fascination with putting together old rosters when they very clearly are not in the same league as the top competitors. I feel like NY is always on the brink of being an elite team but never can get over the hump.

Respect for the doom avatar. But it's not as if I've been a fan of the Pistons for 3 seasons only. We were one of the best teams of the last decade, I'm not really interested in hearing crap from fans of teams that have never experienced winning basketball.

We had a great off-season, we will probably be a 40 win team next year. I don't believe we're comparable to the Knicks, but as a fan of the league, it's 100% ok for me to disagree with their moves. Also, JR Smith played 33 MPG last year, regardless of where he was on the bench he was their number 2 option.

MonroeFAN
07-25-2013, 02:04 PM
How do I simply not get it? Why don't you read the comments.

I'll quit the trash talk about other teams in the league while mine regains it's identity. This guy has been in every single pistons related topic talking mad crap though. Sick of it.

This may be true, but you never. I expect Shumpert to have a bigger role next year, but that's just me.

And plus, Iman has already denied these rumors, so people are arguing for no reason. This thread should be closed.

Oh so you're a yuppie.

If you're from NY you'd say, "I live ON 40th and 2nd." Just a little tip to help you blend in, although I'm sure it won't help.

Lol, you criticized his team and then when he criticized yours, you are mad?

Had you not posted anything like "I wouldn't want to play for the Knicks either" then he wouldn't have said anything about the Pistons.

Treat others the way you want to be treated.

If you are gonna talk crap about another team, you better expect for people to talk crap about yours.

This post is so flawed.

1) What fascination? we had an old roster one year. How does one year constitute a "fascination"
2) "Always" on the brink? What? we havent been this good for 14 years? How are we always on the brink?

He doesnt want out. Shump has been the heart and soul of this lockeroom, started the whole Knickstape thing, and is great friends with JR, Melo, STAT and has already been going back and forth with Metta on twitter about his raps.

And we got significantly younger this season and are leaving 2-3 spots open for training camp invites to make the team.

You have no idea about any of the garbage your spewing do you?
