    NEW YORK KNICKS 2012-2013 THREAD

    This is where we'll follow our knicks and discuss our knicks..


    Knicks have added Marcus Camby, Jason Kidd, Pablo Prigioni, Ronnie Brewer, Raymond Felton to the team.. This team better make a push to be a top 3seed in the east, as they seem to be loaded..


    Early in the pre-season, they look great.. Novak has looked good, as has Melo and Ty Chandler... Kidd is getting acclimated with the new roster, and Felton has been impressive finding the new teammates, and old ones(from when he was here before)


    Chris Copeland looks to be the possible find from the undrafted ranks..

    5 games when he comes back healthy. I'm just upset that he doesn't know when to cut it out. How do you say we are winning it all and then get suspended?

    i think the celtics want to keep rondo at this point. in the past they looked to trade him to appease rivers. now that he's gone i think they might try to build around rondo for the future. either way what do the pacers have to offer other than draft picks? (that will likely not be good because they are a top team in the east). granger? why would the celtics want him?
    I think they can start Grainger at the 3 and George at the 2. George is athletic enough to guard 2's on defense and he would present a match-up nightmare on offense.

    Agree though, that with Scola in the fold now Cope's not getting a lot of minutes. But I doubt the pacers would use their mmle on someone they didn't think had a role on the team.

    another one i did was felton, chandler and JR for westbrook lol

    association mode is so addicting (and franchise mode in madden) but i wish they would make it a little more difficult or at least improve the trade logic. lots of times you can do a trade that will leave the other team with too many good players at 1 position and nobody at another position. also the rotation logic is really flawed. i do my own rotations but all the cpu rotations are way off.

    for instance if a team has 2 shooting guards, 1 is rated 79 the other is rated 77, the 79 guy will start and play over 30 minutes and the 77 guy will play like 15 minutes or less. not really logical since there isn't a big gap between the 2 guys. also they don't factor in real "sixth man" roles. also if a team doesn't have a great center they'll still play him starter minutes rather than splitting up the minutes between the backups and other power forwards.

    i should have been a game developer or some kind of idea developer for video games. i actually had a general idea for a game like "the sims" a few years before it came out. i always thought it would be cool to play a game where you control peoples' lives.

    Cope is so screwed with the Pacers addition of Scola. He might of seen time as a 4 and spot minutes at the 3 but now he is stuck behing Grainger and Scola 2 legitimate NBA starters. The Pacers front court is sick its almost 2 deep. They need to upgrade the backcourt. I think they will make a play for Rondo if the Celtics but him on the market. If the Celtics trade Rondo I would think they force the Pacers "Or anyone" to take on Gerald Wallace

    it was a pretty good signing for them. their bench was their biggest weakness last year, specifically their scoring off the bench. cope should help them out in that regard.

    They'll have no trouble finding minutes for Cope, even with Granger still there. Mainly thanks to George being able to play SG thanks to his quickness. And Cope can also sub in for West at points as well, playing the stretch 4.

    The one player on IND that's going to lose a lot of minutes will be Stevenson, he's prolly only going to be about a 20min/game player.

    good point, probably platooned on the bench or maybe moved later for another piece?



    in retrospect, I guess I have to agree with you. To me IND simply did what they did as a strategic move.
    it was a pretty good signing for them. their bench was their biggest weakness last year, specifically their scoring off the bench. cope should help them out in that regard.
