      So Daryl Morey says he’s trying to duplicate what the Celtics did in 2008, stockpiling young talent in anticipation of a blockbuster trade. There’s only one problem with this analogy – Hakeem Olajuwon isn’t the GM of the Magic.

      Not to mention the fact that the Celtics needed 2 trades to win the title that year. Then, to stay in contention after, the Celtics had to get lucky with Rondo, who became a legit star in his own right. Still, when you consider the chances of landing multiple studs at the top spots of the draft, even a 10% chance of landing Bynum or Howard is actually worth shooting for. For every Oklahoma City there is a Washington or Charlotte, teams constantly at the top of the lottery that get nothing from it. Hell in this past decase, the Pistons won a title after blowing the 2nd pick, and Memphis has become a solid contender despite blowing consective top 3 picks (Imagine that team with Harden instead of Thabeet). Gunning for the top of the draft is just as likely to result in extended mediocrity as it is in contention, and at least you get some extra ticket sales while playing for the playoffs instead of the lottery

      I hate myself for talking about man-child but some sources say he will be traded by next week.
      “With Dwight Howard reiterating his wish to be traded, multiple league sources predict the Orlando Magic will again step up efforts to find their All-Star center a new team.

      Several of those sources told FOX Sports Ohio on Saturday they believe Howard could be traded by the end of next week.”

      I respect everybody that post articles and comments here at Knickerblogger. I’m a big follower and this is my personal favorite site to read. Since it is a little slow with Knicks news, I thought I’d give you guys a decent read and maybe get some feedback on this blog post I wrote on the Atlantic Division competition.

      Yeah, he shouldn’t have been suckered into saying that.

      You need more analysis in your writing. You give no explanations as to why Nick Young + Kwame Brown is a “parallel movement” from (the exceptionally efficient) Lou Williams and (the still-productive) Elton Brand. If you’re actually a long-time reader, you should know that we can get that kind of evidence-free analysis from the NY Post.

      That said, I wouldn’t read your blog again. Using this site to advertise it is kind of silly too, since we’re used to the absolute best stylists I’ve ever read on a sports blog in J.P. and Bob.

      Eh.

      Oh Knickerblogger is by far, the best source for any Knicks information. I don’t debate it at all, and in no way wanted to come off as “advertising” my ideas (which I guess I was). Just wanted to get a little feedback on my thoughts on the Knicks for where I know extremely knowledgeable fans are. Thanks for your input though. I appreciate it, and I will continue to be a dedicated reader of J.P and Bob.
