The February 21st trade deadline is fast approaching and the Knicks do have a few holes that could be plugged. They could use depth at point guard, depth and center and another wing player that can defend and shoot some threes. However, it’s quite unlikely the Knicks are going to do anything. They seem content with the team they have and would have to get super creative to truly acquire pieces that will significantly upgrade the team. And why should they be desperate to make a move? New York does sit second in the Eastern Conference at 30-15, a half game back of Miami. I don’t believe they have enough to make it out of the East, unless they were miraculously able to avoid both Miami and Chicago in the playoffs, but that doesn’t mean the team feels the same way. They’ve made no indication that they’re going to pursue a big trade and I would assume any roster changes made would be minor.
If you follow me on twitter, you know I’m an avid user of ESPN’s awesome Trade Machine feature. 90% of what I conjure up ends up crippling the Lakers, sending Kobe to the Wizards, Pau to the Bobcats, or Dwight to the Pistons. LA usually takes back a package consisting of players like DeSagana Diop, Jan Vesely, Charlie Villanueva and Trevor Arizona. I have fun with it. Although the Knicks are unlikely to make a trade at all, much less a major one, I’m still going to have fun with the ol’ Trade Machine.
Trade #1: Hey look! The Knicks get Eric Bledsoe! Now I don’t have to pee my pants every time Felton grabs his injured pinkie finger!
Trade #2: Knicks need a big? How bout Byron Mullens? He’s big and he can shoot and he’s goofy looking. Can anyone say ‘White Sheed’? (or ‘Weed’ in short).
Trade #3 WOAH!!! BLOCKBUSTER ALERT!
Trade #4 I’d probably Seppuku myself on a live Spreecast if this happened.
Trade #5 The Knicks also throw in Dolan, Radio City Music Hall, Spike Lee, A Rangers helmet and Swizz Beatz. WE KEEP ALICIA KEYS THOUGH, BULLS, YOU GET AWAY FROM HER!
Trade #6 LOL how do the Knicks projected wins go DOWN?
Trade #7 Because who wouldn’t want to see Andrew Bynum, Michael Beasley and DeSagana Diop on the same team? (Except for Knicks fans in this scenario)
Trade #8 Last but not least, let’s see what happens when you put Bear Bryant in charge of a basketball team:
And there you have it, folks. The stupidest, most pointless blog post ever written on a site not related with the basketball section of Bleacher Report. This has been the latest installment of “Armosino Dumbass Theatre.” I hope you enjoyed it!
