Who do you trade Randolph or Curry? It Shouldn't Be a Tough Choice.

This is probably the easiest question in the world to answer. It is obvious that you have to move Eddy Curry over Zach Randolph. They both have ridiculous contracts which hinder the team (Jerome James and Stephon Marbury's contracts hurt the Knicks more but that's another issue). Here are the negatives and positives of both players and you tell me.

Zach Randolph
Positives - Consistent scorer, can create his own shot, can grab 10 rebounds without having any jumping ability what so ever, has range on his jump shot and could be used like Charles Oakley was in the 90s.

Negatives - Sometimes I nickname him the "Black Hole" because once it's passed to him it's usually a jumper, should have better passing skills, limited defensively and argues with officials too much.

Eddy Curry
Positives - Can score in the low post, age

Negatives - Doesn't work on his game, at 6'11 he doesn't block any shots, needs to be the focal part of the offense in order to score consistently, can't create his own shot, and even at his height he struggles to grab 5 boards in a game.

Give Eddy Curry away for a bag a chips, I don't even care. Eddy Curry needs to be off the court for any player with an expiring contract, I would even take a Kwame Brown. Brown did put up a double double on Curry the game before that Andris Biendrins grabbed 26 rebounds on him. Curry on the other hand has no other aspects of his game besides scoring from 5 feet away oh and getting dunked on. As far as Zach is concerned if there was a real star or scorer on that team you will be able to utilize the other aspects of his game and force him to give it up. They say he has no passing skills but who is he going to pass it too? The Knicks are 15-36 and were bad way before Zach was anywhere near MSG. Do not get me wrong though I would trade both away in a heart beat for a superstar, it's just that I would trade Curry first no doubt about it. Either way it's a moot point because getting these contracts off the Knicks' payroll won't allow the Knicks to sign anybody anyway.

We need a shot blocker badly and curry is 6'11 and should be that shot blocker. But he is far from it the Knicks are a sorry bunch of losers right now it blows to be a fan.

I hate Eddy Curry, his existence makes me feel like a crackwhore who's given up a life on the wild side for the mundane life of a sobriety and a 9-5 thats doesn't pay well. I'll be happy as a clam when he's shipped out of here for a half a pack of Newports and second hand Puma sweats.
