Isiah, Knicks Take Heartfelt Gamble
NEW YORK – Apparently not only are Knicks fans anxious for their beloved team to get better but so is the NBA. The NBA moved swiftly to approve the principled trade between the New York Knicks and the Chicago Bulls.
The players in question are Knicks forwards (who’s deals expire after this coming season), Tim Thomas and Michael Sweetney and guard Jermaine Jackson. They are heading to Chi-Town for young stud center, Eddy Curry and old warrior, Antonio Davis.
Curry, who had been feuding with the Chicago front office over DNA testing because of his enlarged heart, was all too eager to leave his home town team over what he deemed a lack of respect.
Although the NBA has approved the deal in principle the trade will not become official until Curry passes a battery of test the Knicks will put him through.
The Knicks of course are most hopeful that everything will check out fine and their quest out of NBA mediocrity will end with new head coach, Larry Brown and a revamped roster.
The center tandem of Jerome James and Curry, two behemoths can wreck havoc.
The trade can prove to be an excruciatingly painful experience for the Knicks or it could be a mark of genius; only time will tell.
