upon the knicks trading for zach randolph to play next to eddy curry, this was my first (and still correct) reaction:
we now have two low post scorers who can’t pass the ball out of a double team, and a roster full of players who can’t, won't or don’t know how to feed them.
it's a great deal in fantasy basketball, but the worst possible idea in constructing a team that needs to play together. it makes no sense at all.
we're getting bigger and slower in a league that's getting quicker and smaller. we're matching our center who still hasn't played a lick of defense in his career with a defensively indifferent power forward. also, he's a social malcontent who's been in and out of trouble, and we're dropping him in the biggest city in the world. and we're limiting the playing time of david lee, the one player on the roster who did everything you need to win. and we don't have an outside shooter to take the congestion out of the lane to give them room to operate.
this really isn't that difficult, isiah. in fact, it's common sense.
it really is.
because of the sucker in the luxury box, i'm questioning my love for the blue and orange.
i can't believe i just typed that.
