Did You Really Think The Trade Wasn't Going to Go Through?
Al Harrington on the other hand has talent and if he plays well they should think about keeping him on this squad for the future. I've said it once and I'll say it again you have to have some kind of solid role players on this team if you want to attract LeBron. If there is only C or D level talent on this team then why would LeBron want to leave his hometown to play with a bunch of scrubs in NYC? Well I guess the playing in Madison Square Garden could help alittle bit but talent would put him over the top.

Can the Knicks pick Patrick Ewing Jr. back up?

Reaction To Trades
I love basketball and I love the Knicks and I'm still going to be watching the games but I am not particularly happy in the short term about having a crappy team once again. However, the great start the Knicks got off to basically raised the value of their players and made it easier for Mr. Walsh to pull the trigger on these trades.
As fans we have to sacrifice the short term for the long term. So when we have LeBron or D-Wade or both we will not be upset about not competing for the '08-'09 and '09-'10 seasons they will be distant memories.
Another point is that the Knicks still have to keep some sort of talent on this squad to attract these free agents. They must resign Wilson Chandler in that same 2010 offseason who will be a restricted free agent. LeBron or anybody won't want to come to a team with a bunch of C and D level players and wait a few years to win.
Now all the Knicks have to do is get rid of Eddy "Oliver Miller" Curry but the likely hood of that happening is slim to none......BUY HIM OUT!!!!
Notable 2010 Unrestricted Free Agents
Kendrick Perkins - Celtics (no thanks)
Paul Pierce - Celtics (not going to leave BASTIN)
Jason Richardson - Bobcats (could work)
Lebron James - The LeBrons (I'll pick u up myself)
Delonte West - The LeBrons (no thanks)
Josh Howard - Mavericks (maybe)
Dirk Nowitzki - Mavericks (no thanks softest "superstar" in the league)
Kenyon Martin - Nuggets (no thanks)
J.R. Smith - Nuggets (no thanks)
Kelenna Azubuike - Warriors (ehh no thanks)
Shane Battier - Rockets (no thanks, can someone iron his wrinkley head...JUST KIDDING)
Yao Ming - Rockets (Houston is going to throw every dollar they had at him)
T.J. Ford - Pacers (sure great pass first point guard if Duhon doesn't continue to improve)
Pau Gasol - Lakers (Ga"soft" as Stephen A. Smith calls him will probably stay in L.A. L.A. land)
Dwyane Wade - Heat (Hop in the car with LeBron I'll drive you guys on over here)
Richard Jefferson - Bucks (could be a nice fall back option if N.Y. doesn't sign a big name at SF)
Luc Mbah a Moute - Bucks (solid player could fit nice)
Sebastian Telfair - T-Wolves (I think the Knicks are done with this gene pool, you should've went to college!!)
Tyson Chandler - Hornets (CP3's favorite teammate and great shot blocker...he is not going anywhere)
Peja Stojakovic - Hornets (he will be 150 in two years no thanks)
Amare Stoudemire - Suns (Probably will resign with Phoenix but he loves D'Antoni so hmmm)
Tony Parker - Spurs (The luckiest man in the world Mr. Eva Longoria will stay in San Antonio)
Chris Bosh - Raptors (Under rated great player will probably want to leave Toronoto....let's try and bring him in)
Andrei Kirilenko - Jazz (probably the 3rd best defender in the league behind K.G. and Artest)
Caron Butler - Wizards (has bounced around enough already in his young career will probably stay in Washington)
DeShawn Stevenson - Wizards (to full of himself and has beef with LeBron so no thanks)

Knicks Fall To Celtics
Huge Game Tonight: Knicks @ Celtics
The lane will be open for Duhon, Nasty Nate and J. Crawford to get in there, yeah they'll still have Kendrick Perkins but come on he's no K.G. (but then again nobody is). However, there are still two future first ballot Hall of Famers on their squad in Ray-Ray and Paul Pierce. Expect a high scoring affair and if the Knicks can somehow come out on top it will be a huuuuuuuuuuuuuge confidence booster that can last with them for a while.

Send in the Clowns: A Tribute to Larry Brown the Worst Coach in Knicks History
Great and funny video on exactly what I think of Larry Brown. He sabotaged the only season he coached with the Knicks for the money. I only wish I was there last night to boo him in person as the Knicks beat the Bobcats at home 101-98. Jamal Crawford hit 2 clutch free throws at the end of the game to put the game away for good (something Stephon Marbury has never done). The Knicks are back at .500 with a 2-2 record.

You Think Marbury Should Play for the Knicks? Then You Do Not Know What You Are Talking About
First off the guy left his team hanging last year with nothing!! Not to mention it was in Phoenix against guess who.....current coach Mike D'Antoni. D'Antoni knows first hand all about Steph's selfishness and how he deserted this team last season. Also Steph was on Phoenix with D'Antoni before D'Antoni had him traded just a few games into the season he had see something then also. Do not forget about what he did to his boy Kevin Garnett leaving him out in the cold in Minnesota so he can make his money (you think he regrets that now?).
Marbury does have the most talent on this team BY FAR but the Knicks are 1-2 because they don't play defense not because Stephon Marbury isn't on the floor. Chris Duhon has never been a full time starter in this league before so relax and let him gain some valuable experience. Mardy Collins has never had any real playing time in his young career so why not let him get experience also? You have to give Duhon and Collins at least 20-30 games before you can say they are terrible and cry for Marbury. If you put Marbury in now then all you will do is take away playing time from Duhon, Collins and Nate Robinson (who was born for this system) and retard their growth even more (Isiah and Larry Brown already messed up Collins and Nate enough).
If Marbury gets in he's just going to do what he usually does and that is shoot at the wrong times and overly embarrass his teammates for making a mistake. Steph can not be on a young team trying to learn the ropes of the NBA. He's been on several teams and they always get better when he gets traded. Again please understand that it has only been 3 games!!!!!
New York is in rebuilding mode and everybody seemed to know that before the season started. Also everybody seemed to understand it was about gaining experience for the young guys and winning games is not a priority right now. Yet after 3 games there are all these so called "experts" out there who say Marbury should be on the floor. AM I MISSING SOMETHING?!?!?! The priority right now (I feel like a broken record) is to cut salary by 2010 while making the fans as happy as possible while they lose some games over the next 2 seasons.
Bottom line the Knicks are in full rebuilding mode so there are going to be some struggles. I know Knick fans are the most passionate fans in the world that doesn't like the losing (and I am one of them) but YOU HAVE TO BE PATIENT. Putting Stephon Marbury in will only push that elusive championship further away from us fans in the future.
**Keep him on the bench in a suit and let him not play and suffer. Let him "get all his money" while being embarrassed. Anything Marbury says about how he wishes Larry Brown was still coach blah, blah HE IS ONLY SAYING WHAT HE KNOWS WILL GET UNDER DOLAN'S SKIN DO NOT LISTEN TO A WORD HE SAYS**
