Fire Isiah Now!

This article pretty much sums up my take on the Eddy Curry trade.

Money quote:

"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.
