Good morning, New York! The Knicks are losing and of course, the trade rumors are beginning to swirl. First, Deron Williams for either Melo or Amare and now, Dwight Howard (aka D-12) for Amare and Tyson, which was posted by Stephen A. Smith. Smith also posted a podcast talking about this as well and I listened to it earlier this morning. He was very emotional talking about the Knicks’s struggles and the possibility getting D-12 to for Amare and Tyson and I could not agree anymore. As much as I feel the Knicks need more time to glue and need a point guard in order to make things work with this group, they should be playing better than they have been playing. Let’s face it, the trio of Amare, Tyson and Melo is not working out. Will a point guard make a difference? I think so, but how much? And if you have the opportunity to snatch up a big man such as D-12, the most dominant big man in the game, you do it in a heart beat. This is a no brainer…pairing up D-12 with Melo would be amazing.
As much I am a fan of Amare, he is not clicking with this team. He really looks depressed and looks as if he’s playing hurt. It’s sad because I really like Amare, but he is a mere shade of himself. He was the only superstar who took a chance coming to the Knicks, has helped make the team become winners again and helped bring Melo and Tyson to the team.
As for Tyson, I was ecstatic and surprised that we were able to get him. He is a true leader and really good defender. He was one of the key reasons the Mavericks won the championship. But, since it’s not working out, the Magic see this as an opportunity getting two solid starters for D12. Dolan, Grunwald if you’re listening….make the move. If you have a chance, listen to Stephen A. Smith’s podcast and let me know what are your reactions.
