    Yeah we might be irrelevant for a year or two

    Knicks have been irrelevant for going on 2 decades.

    If anyone else is feeling the hoops void, the mixtapes of these HS kids who will be in next year's draft are insane. This class has some seriously crazy talent. A few have dealt with some injuries, but if they bounce back all the way, this draft is loaded with star players.

    This kid is so fun to watch, and may not be the first PG off the board (just finished rehabbing an ACL).

    Something about the Olympics makes Melo play at a very very high level. Maybe it's having a good team around him? I dunno

    Because I was posting nonstop about the Warriors in the other thread? Please find evidence of that, I can find about 500 posts with Lebrons junk in your mouth though.

    They won 73 games, and then got Kevin Durant. Not only do you suck at Trolling, but when you double down, it's like a hand grenade with the pin out.

    In other news, Rudy Gay really, really wants to get out of Sacramento (who can blame him?) and be on the Heat.

    Who will/can we sacrifice, besides obviously McBob, to make this work? Barry Jackson says we cant trade McBob straight-up for him,and that Ellington and TJ cant be had til Dec 15th. He said McBob, J-Rich, and a throw-in will do, but I'd rather keep J-Rich.

    Do we even want Gay still? I know Riley likes him and has been trying to aquire him his whole career. But he's on the downside of a very meh career. And he doesnt play good D. He's an athletic wing who isnt very athletic anymore and his jumpshot is very inconsistent. If this was 2010 then maybe, but I've just never been a fan.

    I really liked Rudy Gay 2-3 years ago and saw him at a Paul George type ceiling but he's panned out more like (different position but same expectation) Brandon Jennings / Monta Ellis type talent for a wing.

    He'd be great off the bench if by some miracle Bosh can return to form and actually get on the court. A front rotation with Gay / Bosh / Whiteside with Dragic P&R'ing and slash&dishing with a hopefully improved and more consistent Richardson finding open corners to spot up at I think there could be a real solid rotation with a lot of youth in Waiters and Winslow. That's a lot of size at SF and SG as well.

    If McBob could ever return to form we might even be talking low seed playoff race (which is probably a detriment this year's draft).

    I'll take Gay and his .460% FG and .345% 3FG from last year coming off the bench at age 29 any day.

    Problem being how contracts match up. How do we get him financially to match up without a Bosh decision?

    I was laughing at you/your bad joke.

    Btw I'm almost 100% convinced it was you at the Cavs parade making good on your 2010 promise of "if LeTraitor/LeChoke ever does come back to Cleveland and win one for this sad place, then I will happily eat horse poo off the ground at the championship parade".

    Quiet...awkward guy in the corner, we don't need your lip.

    I've been very clear on my feeling of Lebron for the past 7-8 years. If you are struggling to comprehend that's a you problem.

    Surely its different for you guys...Lebron went from A GOD to you all, to you guys becoming bandwagon Warrior fans like most others. We even had one genius call Lebron "declining" the same week he decided to leave Miami for Cleveland, we had a group of guys happy as can be when Lebron lost in 6 games with his two best players out, then this year when they are healthy called LUCKY because Draymond Green was suspended for one game.

    GTFO with that weak garbage, I told all of you my Lebron timeline with no shame...man up and do the same or at the very least stop **** riding me over it.

    Go Knicks

    fixed that for you.

    Keep getting mad bro, im laughing my *** off how worked up youre getting. Also i dont need to defend why it changed, ive said it once or twice before why it changed. Is lebron an all time heat great? Sure. But hes on the cavs, any team that isnt the Heat is the enemy. I unfollowed all of Wade's accounts after he left too, and believe me i wont be rooting for the Bull**** just because hes there despite him being my favorite player. I dont care for the Bulls, i dont like the Bulls, theyre our *****es just like the Knicks are. Its all about the Heat to me and no player, even an all time great like Lebron or a god like Wade, is bigger than the Heat brand in my eyes.

    You can't possibly be serious.

    Ok, you got me. I thought he was a top 5 all-time player. After this past series, I thought he was on par with Michael Jordan and SAID SO in the NBA thread.

    So I guess my opinion did change. It improved. Huh?


    You also seem to forget I never liked him when he was HERE, and had a personal dealing with him/his people that soured me on him personally as well. You seem to forget all that though...convenient.

    That Christmas Day beat down was a regular sason game, who cares.

    Also forgot to mention I was in a coma for the entire 2014-2015 season and suffered memory loss of anything that happened then. Prayers are appreciated.

    You have to understand, it's just so much easier to defend his flip-flopping when he pretends that everyone else is doing it. In this fantasy land all Heat fans thought LeBron was the greatest thing Miami has ever had when he was here, and is the devil, and a horrible player, and we all want dead now because we're salty (or jealous, or butthurt, or sour).
