David Lee of the New York Knicks

 It’s driving me crazy that there’s all this buzz about Chris Bosh about to be wined and dined by the Knicks.

 You know that saying, “You don’t know what you have until it’s gone.”? I hope the Knicks aren’t saying this about David Lee come the 2010-2011 NBA season.

 Statistically, David Lee had a better year than Bosh during the 2009-2010 NBA season yet it seems that Lee is getting no love from the media or his own team. I’ve watched him develop from a role player into an all star.  He’s just entering his prime, much like the other free agents, yet he’s rarely talked about in the same regard.

Is Chris Bosh or Amare Stoudemire really an upgrade over David Lee? I don’t think so! The Knicks have thrown the last 2 years in the toilet to get to this point. Enough cap room to sign two max players. I hope they don’t make the mistake of signing two players for the max instead of 2 max players and let Lee sign with another team entering the prime of his career.

The Knicks need players, no doubt about it. I just hope they don’t let their only player leave to go somewhere else, especially if it means Lee is gone and I have to watch Bosh or Stoudemire  in his place.
