    Grant-Wood-Mitch would be awful and not ideal at all for modern basketball. Yes grant and wood can shoot but only when open. Itís not a good floor spacing team unless Lamelo turns into a knock down guy. It would be dumb. Wood is not a full time starting 4 no way. Your insane takes on wood just need to stop lol

    How much better are they getting ? If they do trade booker. If he demands a trade theyíll have to trade him itís not the same anymore the years on the contract donít mean much anymore. Players run the league. Iím not sure if bookers interested in leaving or interested in Ny but he can make it happen. Weíd probably throw 5 picks RJ and Mitch cuz thatís what we do.

    Modern basketball doesnít mean you need volume 3PT shooters at every position. Every player is a threat to hit an open 3 1-4 which creates spacing. The threat of hitting the 3 is what matters most. The reason why our spacing is so bad is because no one respects Randle, RJ, or Paytonís shot and Mitch is no threat to shoot at all.

    LaMelo and Booker can handle the pulling up and playmaking. Wood is the scoring big who can score in multiple different ways (P&R, P&P, driving, posting up, and shooting).

    Having bigs with the length and athleticism as Mitch and Wood have on the court at the same time is extremely valuable. These guys are the epitome of modern bigs, they never used to be this athletic.

    The interior defense would be elite with those guys and Grant in the front court. All of them have the ability to guard multiple positions.

    Christian Wood is an anorexic twig of a power forward.

    Knick fans were cussing at Porzingis for not bulking up. KP is 240 lbs while Christian Wood is 214 lbs at age Twenty-Four. In other words, this kid still hasn't progressed much since he was drafted.

    Wood doesn't attack the rim where his wingspan serves him. He's such a twig he overly relies on the jumper. He's not a great defender because he's so frail. A Charles Barkley would post up on this guy time and time again, creating contact and getting a foul every time.

    I don't understand why the Knicks who have just enough valuable cap space for ONE potential superstar would waste $20-25M/season for four years on a twig.

    Let the Pistons be dumb enough to throw that kind of money at a luxury than a necessity.

    The Knicks NEED an iconic player. They're going to need nearly $50M/season in cap space to get it done. They've wasted soooo much time and money and they're going to lose half their youth to free agency.

    Him making it happen, and them giving him away for a weak return are 2 different things. He can demand all he wants, but thereís still 3 years on that deal. Players that try and push their way out are typically near the end of the deal, and can actually leave on their own.

    If players could 100% dictate, then why did NO get so much for AD, even though they had no leverage. AD pretty much had one team on his list, and was approaching FA. Still got a bunch of young players, a bunch of picks, and pick swaps.

    Knicks don't even want to participate in a "bubble" tourney b/c the majority of hte team is FA's and I'm guessing we won't bring them back. that sounds like good news, ROse needs to undo the disastrous Perry signings, especially Payton who made literally ZERO sense.

    Wood was an undrafted guy. And you donít think heís progressed since then? And he doesnít attack the rim? Have you followed his career at all?

    This is a joke, right?

    Also Wood is not heavy, but heís strong and knows how to create space. I doesnít seem like youíve actually watched him play at all.

    Lets hope this renovated franchise will actually have an idea of how to develop talent. Whats the point of all these draft picks, if we don't have people in place to develop them and a fanbase that want our young guys to be instant superstars. The FO and many in this forum have been delusional. We better learn to develop players, because no superstars are coming until we prove we are a legit franchise.
    We dump on all our young players and then turn around and include them in proposed trades for legit ballers lol. This franchise has trashed our young guys development and trade worth. The FO has been pathetic. They brought in the wrong type of vets to mix with our youngns. We brought in vets that are on the verge of being out the league or at the end of a bench. We should have brought in vets that are winners and willing to teach our guys. What pg have we had in place for Frank or Dennis to learn from?!?!
    Man Leon need to burn this ***** to the ground and build this thang back up the right way.

    The difference is booker is not AD talent wise and lakers didnít want to wait for AD to be a free agent so they gave in. They needed him this year lebrons years are runningnout so they could not waste one

    I understand that. But it doesnít change anything. NO held out until they got what they wanted. They had zero leverage, AD was only looking to go one place. And they were running out of time. They held firm until asking price was met. Thatís what a good FO does

    Booker isnít even close to being a FA. Heís young, and a legit all star. Heís not going to be cheap, and there will be plenty of teams with significant interest

    The only reason it worked for the pelicans is because of Lebron. Iím telling you without lebrons age it doesnít work out that great for them. Booker isnít going cheap but I wouldnít say RJ and 2 unprotected firsts is cheap lol I canít imagine many teams offering up a ton more than that.

    The New Orleans Pelicans are owned by Gayle Benson who is also the owner of the New Orleans Saints. Pelicans make ZERO profit, even when Chris Paul was there and it was the Hornets.

    Anthony Davis' agent thought he could play hardball and force a trade. Benson who isn't shy about calling herself a "b%t$h" had Davis sitting in the 4th quarter, gave him additional days off...just enough to prevent AD from getting his bonus...and just enough not to get the Players Union involved.

    Most importantly Benson told AD's agent, "You're under contract with us for an additional year I don't have to trade you."

    Then in the off-season, the Lakers caved and gave Pelicans a lifetime of First Rounders.

    Moral of the Story: Good things come to those who wait.

    Meanwhile the Knicks have traded some of their best players (going back to Bernard King) for practically nothing.

    Some Knick fans can be so pitiful. Reminds me of the scene in Malcolm X where every one gets out of Church, Malcolm X is getting them a slap of reality.

    Christian Wood is the Wal-mart brand of resold goods. He's on his FIFTH team. Philly, Charlotte, Milwaukee, New Orleans, & Detroit...

    So you mean to tell me, ALL of those teams who could always use more talent...were too STUPID to see this alleged emerging phenom?

    PU-LEASE...How did the Mecca get this desperate?

    The 90s Knicks came up $1 short because they could NEVER find enough offense to pair with Patrick Ewing. They tried a lot of spare parts but it wasn't enough.

    Don't short cut this rebuild. USE the Draft and build. Spend for the SURE thing. Not a maybe emerging player.
