Wildpac you are simply ignoring what I am saying and so its pointless to bring in logical points with you until you give up your fandom and look at the facts. You sate the same 3 things over and over that has easily been disputed. A advantage means that you have something that your oppoent does not. There are many teams that can sign players so its not really that big a deal. Only Knick fans think they have good young talent other than Lee (Muahahahah) Again, Waiting for Curry to get off the team doesnt really go along with winning right now which they have stated many times. (seriously what dont you understand about this? Right now is not later...its now?)
Too be honest, I actually think that this years FA class is smarter than what everyone gives them credit for. If that was the case he would have signed right after the season was over so he can bask in all the New York glory.
Here is what really is happening. This crop of FA knows that in order to be really remembered and really change history they have to win Championships. Bottom line. They actually have said this many times yet people continue to ignore them.
It doesnt matter if they are in the back woods of Kansas. If they win Rings they will get to where they want. Most of them have stated including CP3 now that winning is the most imporant thing. Not fame, not money, not being in new york.
They will get paid the same amount no matter where they go so its moot point to talk about New Yorks cap space. In order to win and win right now you have to have system set up for winning already and the players in place that can get you deep in the play offs. There is no way that any one team can sign an entire FA team so you are going to have to take the current roster into consideration when choosing.
No current players to form a opinion of how deep you can get in the play offs if they loose Lee.
A coach that will most likely have to dream up a new system when you get there (which takes time)
The worry of the Knicks not being able to sign another FA along with you or even worse one that doesnt mesh well with you
The knicks dont have any better role players than the Cavs did so you are not gaining anything by going there by yourself.
The Knicks even while being in the east cant make the play offs and can barely get over 30 wins a year.
Boston is a exceptions not a standard.
Knicks fans remember. James and Co dont need
New York. New York needs
James and Co.
