Okay, yes, I know, I know, Isiah Thomas would never in a gazillion years trade Eddy Curry, as too much of Isiah’s identity in New York is wrapped around acquiring Eddy Curry. The Suns could call and say, “We want to become a post-up team, we’ll give you Shawn Marion for Curry,” and Isiah would likely counter, “Only if you toss in Amare.”
But if you’ve been following the pre-season, you can just tell – the Knicks just plain ol’ look much better when Curry is not on the floor, as was the case once again in tonight’s 103-90 victory over the 76ers. The spacing is better, Randolph looks more at ease, everything seems to click so much better when he is not on the court.
Owen and I (and I am sure plenty others out there) fantasize about swapping Curry for Samuel Dalembert, but we know the Sixers would never go for it (and again, this is all depending on us being in an alternate reality where everything is the same except Isiah Thomas’ willingness to deal Curry).
So, just for fun’s sake, what team out there do you think WOULD be willing to acquire Eddy Curry, and if so, what do you think they’d be willing to give up for him?
Oh, and by the by, Nichols – 9 minutes/10 points on two for two from three, plus 4 for 5 from the line.
I think it is clear that he should not be on the team, and Jerome James should be.
