I figured it's about time we got a new NBA thread for all NBA news and discussions for the upcoming year. Training camp officially opened up today with most teams getting ready for the upcoming season. And of course the big news today is the Knicks getting Eddy Curry/Antonio Davis for Mike Sweetney/Tim Thomas/Jermaine Jackson and some picks. So basically the Knicks got Curry for Sweetney. Which I can deal with... the draft picks were a bit of a stretch but this upcoming draft doesn't seem deep so it's not much of a risk. Also losing Sweetney wasn't a huge loss... sure he was maybe gonna be the starting PF but he wasn't gonna make or break NY. Getting Curry, with his heart condition was a risk but he's been cleared by every doctor..except one, who felt a DNA test was due. The NY doctors are gonna do everything they can to make sure he's not gonna drop dead. I have a feeling Curry used the DNA thing as leverage for a trade..which is why Paxton was so irritated today in his PC. So the Knicks have now improved their backcourt, frontcourt while maintaining their core young players.... Lee, Frye, Nate, JC, QR, Ariza... and now add Curry. I'm happy with the direction.
