New York Knicks
The NBA trade deadline came and went without the Knicks making any type of move. Make of that what you will.
Iman Shumpert has survived the trade deadline. But he won’t be playing for the Knicks anytime soon. The Knicks say Shumpert will miss about two weeks with a sprained ligament in his left knee.
They have veteran players underperforming, few youngsters with potential and no draft picks to trade in the near future. It’s tough to make a trade when that’s the case — which for the Knicks might actually be a good thing.
Iman Shumpert sprained his left knee, the same one which sustained a torn ACL in his rookie year, when he tried to come to a stop while driving to the basket in the third quarter.
What a way to start a Thursday!
All the Knicks have left is the future, and they must protect their assets that can help them when the future arrives. Hardaway, Jr. is first on that list. Dealing him would be a dire mistake.
It’s no secret the Knicks want to upgrade at the point guard position. So how about a little Linsanity, the sequel?
Not to be left out, Derek Jeter is scheduled to meet the media later today to talk about the Yankees upcoming season and his pending retirement. Juicy stuff…
Four days aftersaying he’d take a pay cut to help the Knicks improve their roster going forward, Carmelo Anthony said Tuesday he expects the front office to keep him informed as Thursday’s trade deadline approaches.
According to a report, general manager Steve Mills is looking to upgrade the point-guard position in an effort to salvage what is, at this point, a lost season.
How is it humanly possible that the Knicks have not sat down with the foundation of their franchise? How have they not asked him about the future and what kind of teammates he wants to play with?
The Knicks commence their 2013-14 campaign with a tilt in Memphis tonight with the Grizzlies and a lot of questions about their future.
Anthony sounds like he’ll give the Knicks a legit shot. But there’s the possibility that he’s creating cover for himself with a scenario where he can leave New York without looking like the bad guy.
Nobody knows anything. That should be the mantra from now on when it comes to prognosticating about Carmelo Anthony’s future.
“I think you have to be in a place that you have a chance to win a championship. I think Carmelo loves New York, but I would tell him, ‘Let’s try to get some place where you can win this thing.’”
