      I have a question for those of us here are more knowledgeable on cap structure and what not. I think regardless of who coaches, that Phil ABSOLUTELY has to bring back Cole, Tyler, and Murry. How does that effect the cap? Is that even possible?
      Also..shouldn’t Phil be looking to move JR? Once he re-discovered his game he showed how valuable he is, but I really think we can survive at the 2 with Hardaway Jr-Shump-Murry-Brown. How much trade value does JR have now? Hopefully his play towards the end of the season overshadows his behavior. Not likely- I know…but we’re all fixated on moving immovable parts in Felton and Bargs. The only way we can move one of those 2 is in a Tyson headlined package. What about Melo? If Phil has any doubt in him re-signing, shouldn’t he look to S&T him? Like to Houston? They have at least 2 maybe 3 packages that they can offer in return. One headlined by Howard..and the other headlined by Harden. And possibly one headlined by Asik and Lin and another young piece/or picks. The Asik/Lin deal sounds Isaiah-esque and is a horrible cap deal, but talent-wise it’s not a bad haul if you have no other choice. As much as I LOVE Kevin Love, I don’t think we should bank on him. He and Melo are an even worse defensive combo than Melo and Stat even though rebounding numbers would go through the roof. And on his own, he’s not your top star that you build around. Obviously LeBron would be the top choice to play alongside Melo, but i’m not sure he would want to be a Knick right now with Cleveland’s future looking super bright with Kyrie-cap room-and top picks. But man oh man a LeBron-Melo pairing would be on par with MJ-Pippen or Shaq-Kobe. I still think Phil can be a successful exec with our Knicks..but from where I sit, things look a little confusing..tedious even.
