    Ice said this was draft was as weak as Kandi's draft...

    But it should be noted that the "number two" pick in that draft was Mike Bibby.

    Paxson has built a pretty solid team through his draft choices and there's no reason to believe the Bulls won't see *any* improvement thanks to the Knicks.

    Knick fans are getting owned left right and center here. lol. What's funny is they try to somehow justify or create a magical reason that their team actually has things under control. Seriously I feel bad for Knick fans...on second thoughts...i'm enjoying this very much...

    In reality nobody yet can say this trade was terrible until the drafted playerhas proved himself to be better than Curry in NBA, Chicago is in a better position, but neither team have yet to improve after this trade.

    The bulls didnt have to trade him. They felt his heart issue was a big risk, thats the only reason they traded him. They did what they need to do but it still doesnt mean it was a bad trade for us. Sweetney is a decent player but noone to cry over. Lol @ Tim Thomas... and the two picks. as i said this pick doesnt matter as i dont see it being any1 of worth. Next year is the pick im worried about but i think the knicks have enough talent to turn it around and compete for a playoff spot so the bulls wont get a top pick. So you cant say it was a bad trade till u see next years pick.

    Funny that you all can read into the future and can tell what curry will become. He's still young. hes what 24? Are yall really tring to tell me that a 24 yr old player has reached his ceiling? Come on get real.

    get your facts str8 then come at.

    What a wack comparison.

    He was in Portland playing behind Sheed' Wallace on a pretty stacked contender roster. Kind of like.. ever heard of a guy named Darko Milicic? Anyways, when O' Neal went to Indiana, he benefitted from spending time on the bench but also he was given this thing that generally helps a lot of players become great players: PLAYING TIME.

    It's not like Eddy Curry hasn't been getting playing time. He's a starter.

    Much like Kwame Brown.

    Both of those guys have been given playing time and been in the league for 4+ years. I don't know how much better you could expect either player to get.

    You can't assume every high school player needs four years to blossom, especially the ones who have had a generous amount of playing time.

    Also, I don't think guys like Kobe, Garnett, LeBron and other high schoolers will play until their 43 years old. The average NBA career is probably somewhere between 13-16 years. Just because all these guys entered at age 18 doesn't mean they'll automatically tack an additional 3-4 years on the end of all their careers.

    Well, if they felt his heart issue was a risk then yes THEY HAD TO TRADE HIM.

    Did you not understand what I said? He refused to take the DNA test for Paxson and contract talks came to a stand still. Curry was a free agent.. they were going to lose him regardless but they got their dicks sucked by the Knicks in the process.

    You make it seem as if Curry was just some random player under contract that they decided to trade. They were going to lose him one way or another to free agency and things had grown sour with the DNA test and contract negotiations between him and the team.

    And no I'm not trying to tell you a 24 year old has reached his ceiling. I'm saying he's close to it. Stop talking "potential" with this player like he's fresh out of prom. This will be his sixth year and as I said previous post, he's had the playing time needed to showcase his skills. I'd say a 16 and 7 guy is about the best you can hope for.

    Plus, most importantly- he's playing on a team with a bunch of ball thirsty guards.

    Why thank you.

    lol @ everyone talking about ice getting sonned...

    But I'm pretty sure I son our "resident sports genius" like this on just about every topic except when he's talking about the Mets. I bet I'd need to watch no more than 35 baseball games a season including the playoffs to shit on his entire baseball knowledge database as well.

    The average is actually 4 years.

    For good players, I'd say 13-16 years is a good average.
