This article pretty much sums up my take on the Eddy Curry trade.
"Thus, the Knicks didn't just give up Michael Sweetney and Tim Thomas. They also gave up an insurable contract, multiple draft choices, and the increased risk of a free-agent departure -- all to pay more money for a player the Knicks essentially already had in Sweetney: a high percentage-shooting big man who is in less-than-ideal shape and struggles on defense."
Yep. Anyone surprised that the Knicks would take this risk for so little reward? Isiah runs this squad like a fantasy team: pick up all the big names one can find and hope someone will overachieve. Well, that doesn't work when picking up that player entails taking on a $60 million contract.
