    This Phil Jackson experiment is going to be very interesting, sort of like the Kidd experiment in Brooklyn (which was a disaster that miraculously turned into a mild success). The Knicks are strapped financially, their only legitimate player is a free agent once he opts out, and they are committed to untradable players/contracts like Stoudemire, Barangi, Smith, and Felton for the next 1-2 years. The only players on that roster I take after Anthony are Chandler, Shumphert, and Hardaway. And they just signed Lamar Odom?

    Either way this goes, it will be fun. It could be an epic Dolan disaster that makes Isaiah Thomas look like Daryl Morey or Sam Presti, or it will be a miraculous success that goes down in Knicks lore right behind a gimpy Reed. I am going with the former.

    Don't know where Lamar is as a player these days but he brought something to the Lakers that has been missing ever since.

    He is basically DOA. Mavs and Clips couldn't wait to show him the door.

    Lamar Odom is more than likely a financial/trade asset than potential player. It's a way to make salary match in a potential trade but doesn't cost the team anything financially because the second year is non-guaranteed.

    Odom is a quasi player coach. He knows the triangle they'll be migrating to and can earn a check at the end of the bench as well as the next guy.

    A harsh assessment. Basically a brand new team with established veterans and a rookie coach taking some time to get their rhythm. Why is their "mild" (35W's in last 52 games) success a miracle?

    Rumor Alert (heard from a friend and IU grad). Mark Cuban has offered to buy out Tom Crean's contract if IU will hire Woodson.

    Because a month into his inaugural season he fired the one guy (Frank) who was the lynchpin in his pitch to get the job in the first place. They did a great job after Lopez went out, but if it weren't for a fairly terrible conference they would have been in much worse shape.

    If I was a Knicks fan, I'd be a more than a little upset. Looks like the Par cell experiment with the Dolphins. Jackson totally turns over the team, they still wont beat the Heat, Pacers or any other good team, Phil gets frustrated, takes his millions and retires and they get to start over in a couple of years. As a Heat fan, gotta love it.

    Probably because it started out as a complete train wreck, but I agree with the surprising aspect, I sure am surprised and as a heat fan not all too thrilled to se it!
