We need someone who can score on the inside. We've been rumored to have interest in David West, but if we can get him for a bargain price, that would be nice.

Funny enough, I think what the Raptors need is Chris Bosh (good scoring force inside). Miami, can we have him back for this season? :D

The clippers have interest in anyone who's ever had any success in the NBA. All doc rivers is doing is adding names. From the coaching staff right down to the roster. With his lone championship in Boston came the title of "best coach in basketball" and with all those names and a stable of ex head coaches the clips are the 6th seed at this point. Oh they also lead the league in technical fouls. The next big name for the clippers will be KG. If Brooklyn still have plans to blow him out.

They're overrated from the coach to the players. First RD exit at best and I'm willing to bet my life on that.

If Amar'e wants a ring, he better go to the Spurs, Cavs, GS, Grizzlies and maybe Mavs.

Look at the clippers roster. Chris Paul,supposedly the best pg in the game. Blake griffin,the best power forward in the game. Jj reddick, one of the best shooters in the game. Oh and one of the best coaches. At best a group of overrated underachievers and. I also think doc is turning guys with all these guys he's bringing in. There have been reports going back to last season that there are issues in the locker room so adding another name makes perfect sense. With or without stoudamire I don't see a championship run from the clippers. I also think the mavs have a better shot. I Wouldn't bet my life on ijs. With all that the clippers have they are in the six spot. Something has to be said for that.

But in saying that, Mavs are only half game ahead of them. So it's not like the Mavs are playing any better. As I said, the Mavs have just as much chance at this years championship as the clippers.

Stoudmire played under Gentry and Kerr in PHX.

and Kerr basically insulted him when he left PHO saying it was a bad contract and he would never hold up...

he was right of course...lol... but still I'm sure Amare wasnt happy with that.

Would be nice to see Amare finish his career in PHO and get them into the playoffs. Maybe he can extend his career there with their medical staff.

Clips I dont think make sense, he would never see the court late in the 4th quarter with Blake & DJ there...

I know Dallas need a backup big since they traded Wright but I am not sure Amare is the guy for them. I like the fit with Dallas' guards but he really should never see the court at the same time as Dirk - that would just be a defensive disaster not much different than Amare and Bargs on the court together.

Amare really needs to be with a good playmaking PG to set him up for easy baskets, and really needs to get back to an offense that utilizes the PnR with said PG's. The only problem is, can he play? He has been on a small volume all year, and just like recent years as soon as they cranked him and got him some 30 minute games like he wanted his body broke down and he missed a ton of games.

He missed 18 of 22 games recently with various injuries before they let him play the last four games before the break. Sort of a showcase opportunity for teams in the buyout market, I would imagine. And in those games, he showed a little but nothing extraordinary.

Can he really help at playoff team at this stage in his career? Idk, maybe. His defense and rebounding have gotten so bad, and while he scores efficiently it's been very limited which is why his volume is so low. I think a PG and PnR situation would do wonders for him and could definitely allow him to make a far bigger impact than he's been able to, but even then it may just be a matter of time before he gets hurt anyways.

If I'm a playoff team, I don't know why I put my faith in his health.

Did the Knicks really try though? nah, be real. It is funny the backlash we took is all gone now bcuz of the improvement to both the team and young players already butMinny and Ny tank and no one bats an eye gives them a pass like its any different when its not.

I think the Mavs is the best destination for him too. They have the coaching, guard play and opportunity to be out there with Tyson to cover up his weaknesses. And yes, definitely for them not needing him to do TOO much, but really just come in a score a bit. Even then he may not last, but that's his best chance.

Redrum187
02-16-2015, 02:13 PM
It makes the most sense to go to the Mavericks. They would still need another back up big man.

Barea,Jefferson, Aminu, Villanueva, Stoudemire

That is pretty good quality depth. The Bucks are buying out Larry Sanders, I'm not sure if the Mavericks would be willing to put any stock in him, but I think they have the right players/coach to turn him around as well...

PG: JJ Barea
SG: Devin Harris
SF: Al-Farouq Aminu - Richard Jefferson
PF: Amare Stoudemire - Charlie Villanueva
C: Larry Sanders

Well Felton rarely plays. He's the last guard on the bench. And Chandler has been the 2nd or 3rd best player on the team. He probably deserved the All Star bid over Dirk, and Dirk would even tell you that.

Amare has been brought to Dallas for 1 reason. Score off the bench the way Brandan Wright did. Finish the P&R with a dunk. He will very likely be in the rotation with Chandler and Aminu. Those two will cover up any defensive deficiencies Amare might have.

Also keep in mind the Amare are not done yet. I don't know if they will actually take a flyer on Larry Sanders but I have no doubt at all they more moves will be made. I fully expect them to bring in another big man besides Amare.

D-Leethal
02-17-2015, 08:09 AM
I don't love the fit with Dallas. He always struggled next to Tyson due to spacing and redundancy in their pick and roll prowess, STAT basically became a jump shooter when Tyson was on the court and always struggled to find a rhythm. Him next to Dirk could have him-next-to-Bargs-like negative impact defensively. Him next to Charlie V. seems like a disaster too. He would be a great fit with those guards but I don't see a big man on the roster he will thrive next too.

I'll be interested to see how Carlisle uses him next to Tyson.

tredigs
02-17-2015, 08:14 AM
^He won't be next to Tyson very often. He'll be in the Brandan Wright role in the backup PnR setup, just with less explosion/length and worse D. Still think that trade was a mistake.

02-17-2015, 08:36 AM
NYK really screwed the pooch by giving him that ridiculous contract in the first place. And then amnestying Billups!!

I'm not a NYK fan (Fun rivalry between bulls all them years) but I can feel good about saying that I dont see the Knicks doing anything of significance in the next 4-5 years. Other side of that coin makes me sad because a ECF between the Bulls vs. Knicks would be huuuuge for rating and for the fans. That makes for a good and fun NBA playoffs.

^He won't be next to Tyson very often. He'll be in the Brandan Wright role in the backup PnR setup, just with less explosion/length and worse D. Still think that trade was a mistake.

At C next to Charlie V? Offensively makes sense but could be a disaster on D. When we ran him out there at C next to Copeland a few years back we would look great on O but end up being outscored on a nightly basis on D.

Amare is a tough guy to put pieces around - he really needs a particular set of players to thrive on O and not get walloped on D. When he is thriving he can look unstoppable at times. When he is rusty and "finding his rhythm" he might be the ugliest player to watch in the league. I hope it works - I'll be rooting for Dallas.

D-Leethal
02-17-2015, 08:58 AM
That was one thing I always said to the big Amare supporters in the Knick forum - when you have a guy that you are unable to play 2-3 players next to him in the same rotation it might be time to take him out of the rotation. It literally seemed like there was one unit at times Amare would thrive with.

I love Amare the person, seems like an awesome dude, warrior spirit, I will always root for him, but once D'Antoni left and we traded for Melo he was a massive liability far more often than not and our W-L record w/out vs w/Amare was freakin' insane up until this year.
