Instead of people always saying trade Amare, why not trade Novak? He has the easiest contract, and when he isn't making shots then what does he do , it's like if his shot is off then the Knicks play 4 against 5. STAT is an easy target because of his money. Yes he's been injured, but Novak has been off, to me it is the same. STAT is useless if he is hurt, Novak is useless when his shot isn't falling, but at least STAT can get his own shot and every now and then get a decent block or two, he had a decent season for having a minutes restriction. Then every analyst is like " when Melo, STAT, and Chandler are on the floor they were .500, like it was STATs fault other players got injured or they went cold, STAT is who Dolan and the gang thought he was, and they still paid him. How doubt taking some of that cable money and get better medical staff, maybe then they would know for certain if Melo needs surgery, or they would've known of Tyson was really healthy enough for the playoffs. As far as Earl, even if we didn't get T. Hardaway, Earl still should walk before the Knicks overpay him to be mad inconsistent when it matters the most. Just sayin. A. Vandelay.
