Pelicans sign Jarrett Jack.

Fans seem happy.  Some say Jrue can play some 2 guard.

Earl Monroe? A WONDFERFUL player, for sure.

But........



heh.

No #1 pick involved. 

Mike Riordan-Dave Stallworth-Cash

Also, not that it would matter to you, the Knicks were an established, championship grade franchise, with a solid core of proven veterans. 

So they gave value to get value. 

Heh?

DUH

Good landing spot for Jarrett.

I didn't realize Scott Layden was GM of Minnesota.

They are gonna F'up Towns/Butler FOR SURE!
Maybe we can get JB for season opener.

Highly respected NBA coach/exec.  Always has been.

Yeah, I was wrong.
After the Knix, I said Layden wouldn't get another GM job.
Though it's still Thibs as PoB Op calling the shots, right?

The GM title isn't what it used to be ...

Ha. Kiid freaked out when I tried to make the same point.

GM = the assistant GM
VP Basket Ops = the real GM

It's Thibs

Then it's Layden

Unless you think Mr Yoshimoto is out making deals

Have to think Scott does much of the legwork and Thibs has the hammer.

I guess Jamie Matthews, not Scott Perry, makes Knicks trades.

Seriously though - with Layden.....

UGH on the draft picks he did make

The forum liked Sweetney

heh

- and Harrington - while being a need - was an overpay.

But in Scott's defense -

he added Van Horn..... then Keith was jettisoned for Tim Thomas after Layden was fired

And Thomas begot Curry - again - under the new GM

You all got what you deserved after skewering the guy out of town

By the way - Andrei Kirilenko was a Layden fave - and could very well have been Knicks pick at 15 in place of Weis.  But he was hired AFTER that draft went down

Donnell Harvey was a very good collegian - and we just missed on Mo Pete and Claxton that year. At 22, whatareyougonnado?  Nene deal, say what you want - good pick. 

As I said - Harrington........  and Sweetney.......

Rest was B+ stuff.

Last -

Scott fired -

and THIS happens

reminding all that Layden did legwork on this and WOULD NOT PULL THE TRIGGER WITH PENNY IN THE DEAL.

Harvey was an empty vessel. 

In fairness, that draft was a desert after him.  A remarkable absence of talent. 

Weis was drafted by Affirmative Ed Tapscott, a bum's bum, who was put off by how street Ron Artest was.  Also, he was on his way out the door, so not beyond the realm of reason that he fucked the Knicks as a parting gift. 

Of course, poor Weis...douche nozzle Van Gundy punked and demeaned him, and they were experimenting with new rules & new refs in summer league, so Weis absorbed an orgy of foul calls, had what little confidence he possessed beaten out of him, and the rest is history.

No

Not what happened - and yeah, I mentioned Layden didnt make the Weis pick -but thanks for filling the third graders in on who did

They trusted Ed and he liked Weis

Fred was a bit of a tin man - and preferred Europe

Likely an agent that convinced him to enter the draft.  Our loss.  FRED needed a role model stateside. None forthcame.  But you are right - we embarassed him by letting him be a foul machine in summer league

Again - not winning anything at that time anyway And RonRon was no guarantee to own NY

SWEETNEY was the killah.
