whos going be the first to go. Hopefully a big trade is around the corner, and one of these two will probably be involved. who will it be??? Im thinkin spree for two obvious reasons, hes has a much higher trade value and he costs less. Whoever we get lets hope he is atleast young so we can build toward the future... none of this dale davis, gpate, the admiral, or the mailman BS. Lets go for odom!!
ya cant stop me, you can only hope to contain me

Why would you want to trade either of them or camby when they're finally playing so well together? Yeah the team is kind of in a slump, but thats just because the supporting cast isn't playing anywhere near its full potential. In other words, we need to break-up the big three, but improve the talent around them. Get a young, quicker point guard and a better power forward/center, maybe LaFrentz or Jackson would do it.

Camby is playing better, but he still has no low post moves. He isn't drawing a double team from guards, which would help Houston because he'd get more open looks. The Knicks played a good team in Detroit and lost it by an inch, same with the Celtics. They just came out flat against the Wiz, but still, they could be 2 for their last 3, instead they're of for their last 3. They don't need to do anything huge because anything like that would hurt this team. I say hold out until the draft, because this year's draft looks promising, and try to get someone to help out downlow, like Carlos Boozer, who can score AND rebound, or draft a quicker PG like Tito Maddox, who plays in the ABA because he was kicked out of the NCAA last year, but he is a 6 4 PG who played @ Fresno St. and I think avg. around 15 points and 8 assists. Either one of those guys would help us.

Let's not get toooooo conclusive here. Camby has no moves. Zero. Nada.

Yeah, thats what I said, he has nothing except that overhead shot that looks like a soccer throw-in.

He doesn't need that many post moves, but needs at least one and needs to work on a quick shot. If he can hit 1 out of every 2 mid-range shots, we'll be in good shape.

I wish he could develop a little something -- it would easily make him the second best center in the NBA.
We suck.

You're right about that. Because of Camby's potential, the only center i would prefer over him at this point is Shaq. Camby is capable of being the second best center, but he isn't at this point. He is currently the best rebounder in the league so hopefully he can keep that up and this will be the start for him being the second best center.

I am not yet convinced that Camby is the league's best rebounder, stats aside. I still say that the lack of any other rebounder (PF that gets into foul trouble, undersized SF, non rebounding back court) on the Knicks has paved the way for padded rebounding numbers.
