Ladies and Gentlement, The New York Mob!…I mean Knicks!
July 4, 2007
The latest rumour going around is that the New York Knicks could trade David Lee to the Sacramento Kings for non other than Ron Artest. Yes….Ron Artest! Don’t get me wrong, I’m actually a very big fan of Artest’s game. He’s a very solid all-around player who can really add that final piece to the puzzle for any team. In this situation, though, is Artest a good influence on the Knicks? What I’m trying to get at is that New York could become home to the new Bad Boys of the 2007-2008 season. Pairing newly acquired Zach Randolph with Artest creates one of the scariest front courts in the game, let alone one of the scariest duos outside the arena. I’m sure if this trade goes down that the Knicks will try and keep Randolph and Artest in separate rooms on the road, and make sure they don’t end up touring around the visiting cities together. If they do, who knows what could happen? These guys are straight up bad asses. They would give the team a physical edge, but the Knicks will need to do some investing in their bench with the amount of suspension between these two. Both of these guys are considered gambles, regardless of what team they play on. I’m sure Isiah Thomas is thinking more basketball. Seriously, a front court of Zach Randolph, Ron Artest and Eddy Curry is pretty powerful and has the potential to go places. And I’m not just talking jail. Think about it.
Michael and Scotty, Stockton and Malone…Randolph and Artest? Hmmm…
