    Heís 35 and we arenít a piece away how do you not see the issue with that? A first round exit or two is the best case scenario

    Nobody is arguing cp3 isnít a great player but in his prime with a better team win nothing. This year with a better team won nothing. Injuries arenít foreign to him and heís getting up there. Can we build a contender around him in a year? This is insane.

    Dipo pre injury wouldíve made some sense but not now he hasnít looked right. Maybe if you can buy super low but even still heís more of a scorer than a shooter our spacing would still be trash. Pick two way players and grow a ****ing team. This organization is so inept it doesnít matter who is running it same **** different faces.

    The Nash example is a great one.

    Also for those buying into this idea of getting him for mentorship purposes, see Garnettís last stint with the Timberwolves.

    There are cheaper ways to go about this. I say this with Chris Paul being one of my favorite players of the last 20 years.

    I wouldnít mind buying low on Dipo.

    CP3 definitely has good years left and would be the best PG weíve had in decades. Even if weíre rebuilding, itís hard to pass on that. Iím a believer in his longevity due to his vegan diet which has apparently solved his injury issues and has boosted his performance.

    Buying low on either would be fine but the Knicks seemingly never get the right end of a deal. The cp3 convo started with them attaching picks to move the contract and now itís Knox frank and picks for a fun player to watch. I love Paul but at his age heís not taking us anywhere Iíd rather continue to build youth and use assets to pursue the next disgruntled star in his prime via trade.

    You are assuming that is package. I say it is more than that. Frank, Knox, multiple picks including at least one first.

    That's too much just to fool ourselves and sneak in as an 8th seed.

    Nobody is saying get Cp3 and become championship team the reason I want cp3 is so Knicks players can understand what a stable offense is he can help the young players because he's a floor general we are not talking about melo or kd here. The past 7 years we have been watching headless chickens running around and jacking 3s without any rhythm or flow in the offense the last time Knicks played real basketball was when kidd was here.

    agreed, the contract matters. A year ago didn't Miami want assets to take that contract?

    He had a great resurgent year and upped his value but we'd definitely be buying high giving up 2 assets for him. Once we get him, I have a feeling his value won't ever come close to that.

    He honestly wasnít all that much better than he was in Houston. Just took a bit less of a role, and shot more efficiently. Go look at the numbers. Highly overblown about his ďresurgenceĒ. Just found a good fit, stayed healthier, and lessened his load a bit, which Iím sure helped him make one more field goal a game, which is to account for his higher % from last year.

    He hasnít been asked to fully carry/run an offense since leaving LA. His efficiency will drop big time here, asking him to be the only real playmaker again. Which makes his contract look all that much worse

    Even so he would turn the culture around in New York for the better

    I donít buy that either. Overblown how great everyone thinks he is for teammates and ďcultureĒ. Throughout the years, always heard about teammates and opposition not liking him at all. I donít think that benefit will be anywhere near worth the cost for getting him, and his contract. Not for us

    He makes sense for a win-now team. But they cant fit his deal in

    Of course they could if they traded said assets to get him and he would be a great mentor for the young guys especially RJ...he would help elevate RJs game

    There's also something else to consider in a CP trade.

    We trade for CP and sign another old FA. We sneak in as an 8th playoff seed..

    Suddenly instead of being in the lottery next year in a very strong draft, we are on the outside looking in on some very good prospects.

    It just doesn't make any sense to me. We are a rebuilding team and need the best draft picks we can get.
