    Gilbert Arenas

    Ok some of you may call me crazy but I watched the entire Knick game tonight and I really canít stop thinking about one thing that we need. We donít have a true guard that can consistently stroke the ball and truly score. The only major threat we can consistently go to at the end of games is Amare and his percent from the field 9/13 shows that. Iíve been watching ESPN throughout the night and every rumor has arenas getting kicked out of DC saying that hes played his last game there. We all know that nobody is going to trade for this guy hes been a mess with his gun charges and injuries but would it be that crazy if we gave up Eddy Curryís expiring contract for his and even a few other bench playerís to bring in a once NBA all-star whoís still in his prime I think hes maybe 28 with fresh legs. Weíre all hopeful that weíll manage to bring another superstar besides Amare next year and we would still have the money to do it even if we brought on Arenasí contract and maybe that can change him. We all know what he can do on the court he even proved it in the very few games he played last season look at his stats. Iím not sure how many years are left on his contract either and if itís not a long term deal how could it hurt us? Were not going to be a major factor in the East without him. We can and probably will contend for one of the last 2 playoff spots. Let me know what you guys think. A different sort of big 3 maybe?

    I feel sorry for the guy...I genuinely feel he is depressed and can't think rational. If no one helps him this won't end well. I hope he keeps it together and has a productive season. But this latest incident doesn't bode well.

    As for the Knicks, it's too huge a gamble given his instability...they can potentially shoot themselves in the foot again just when they cleared their cap room. They only way I can see it happening is if the Wizards buy Arenas out.

    Trading for Arenas will just undo all the work Donny Walsh had to do to to give them a future to look forward to.

    Love the tick-box poll with two options. I'm tempted to vote for both.

    edit: but really the answer is no. No team should want Arenas (given his contract).

    Arenas can be a ****ing awesome player. But, he means trouble, too. Stupid things like that faked injury (wtf !?) and that "guns in the locker-room"-thing would really scare me, as a GM. Not to mention, he has real injury problems and missed out lots of games in the past. So ... the KNICKS have Felton at PG and, I don't think they would pay that huge for a risk-guy like Agent Zero. The KNICKS are still in the MELO-talks, which makes more sense for me, than Arenas. I would not be high on Gilbert.

    Dear Knick fans,

    Your franchise seems to have finally turned things around. Things are looking up and the future looks bright. you have a huge expiring contract in eddy curry and you want to mess that up by attaining the worst contract in the NBA ??

    enjoy felton, enjoy amare, randolph, gallo. these are good players. Hard workers.

    why in the world would you want starbury 2.0 ?? gilbart frikken arenas ??

    insane ill tell you, insane.


    heres a piece of advice. if you want a pure scorer and shooting gaurd go back and lure jamal crawford away from atlanta. he is much cheaper, less drama, and an all around good team mate.

    arenas is an idiot. beleive it. tell a friend.



    let me ask you guys somthing. whens the last time you saw arenas play a full season ? whens the last time he was awesome ? whens the last time he did anything but run his mouth. ?

    im a raptor fan, im from the Tdot. but ive always liked the knicks and have wanted them to do well now that they are heading in the right direction i dont want to see another cancer come and ruin things for what seems to be a team heading in good direction.

    the word is "lose" and yes they do, Arenas would kill their cap space and chances at Melo and or CP3/Deron
