Now that the Yanks are done, its time to focus on the future Eastern Conference Champs, The New York Knicks
In my opinion a deal for Kobe needs to get done. Bottom line. There are 4 players, however, i would not trade for him (Lee, Curry, Zach Randolph, and either Balkman or Steph but most likely steph. So what about this deal
Nate Robinson, Jamal Crawford, Q and unconditional 1st rounder
Kobe and maybe a large contract like one of the croatian players like Radmonovic or something like that
The Lakers get Jamal and Q who essentially (atleast scoring wise) = Kobe, and Nate Robinson who is a great young player, Maybe even throw in Mardy Collins or Balkman to give them some size as well.
I would also get rid of Isiah. Start over. Find a young GM and an established hard nosed coach and see what happens.
Why in the name of god would you want Kobe on this team? thats the last thing in the world the Knicks need right now. If you watched Kobe on a daily basis like i do, you would know why he would'nt fit this team at all!
Stop making trade proposals, the Knicks are fine right now.
