Knicks to Take a Look at Jerry Stackhouse

Jerry is getting killed by the local media, even before getting the job with the Knicks: “In the leave-no-stone-unturned department, the Knicks will host washed-up veteran shooting guard Jerry Stackhouse for a workout today at their Westchester compound, according to a team official. Team president Donnie Walsh, overseeing a tedious free-agency period in which they have yet to make a move through 36 days, is trying to enhance both the point guard and shooting-guard positions.”

    please no. grant hill, stack bundles. they are injury prone senior citizens. just sign sessions and be done with it.

    The NY media better be aware that Jerry will fight you.

    what’s the plan? what’s the vision?

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    i’d understand it from a contender trying to get some veteran leadership and locker room presence… what is he going to do for ny besides stealing minutes from the youngn’s?

  • JoeMaMa

    Z – Give Dolan a slap and a tickle and take his money. Apparently Jimmy likes that kind of thing.

    Stack was my dude on NBA2K for Dreamcast. Hes also the only guys in can think of that has multipul notable blocks on VC in his prime.

  • Joe A

    With this and the possible Jason Williams signing, The Knicks will have one hell of a team…..If it was 1999.

  • chingy

    The Knicks need AI not Stack!

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Sign Sessions and AI. Or let Toney Douglas start. If we sign Stack, get rid of Larry. I prefer Larry.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Signing Sessions should be the priority, Donnie. Okay?

    Were they not right there, about to get Ramon’s John Hancock on the dotted line/or next to the X?
    “Knickerbocker please!” (youtube search if you don’t know)

    Ouch, they left no stone unturned in describing how they feel about him.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    LOL @ the NYpost. Ouch, whatever happened to “unbiased” media? That was hilarious.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    But not uncalled for. If you’re a Knick fan, eh, you know why they’re angry.

    For starters Stackhouse has been unactive for quite some time I dont think they should pick him up just to waste money, I think they should save more money for 2010 because a lot of players are on the market like LeBron.

  • http://www.nba.com Pardeep

    JUST SIGN AI!!! sell tickets and become an 8th seed.

  • oddball

    i agree w/ pardeep…please sign ai! and stack couldnt hurt….

  • chintao

    The Knicks probably can find roughly 500 guys in the five boroughs that would be willing to sign for the league minimum and could school Stack on a regular basis. What’s the real?

  • Felix

    My folks moved me to the NY area when I was sixteen… so Im kind of an outsider here, and as a third party, it seems like the press speculates on virtually every conceivable move, praises the teams one day, and then kills them the next for the same moves, and everyone takes sports way too serious… also, there’s kids on several playgrounds right now that could shammgod stack and dunk on him- but they would probably kill an organized team-… I dont know, its crazy here. fans, media, expectations… please sign AI knicks

  • Felix

    one year mid level, let AI be the man, make the lower seeds of the east, hopefully, and do it without killing 2010 pipe dream

  • Felix

    stackhouse is a vet, he’ll bring something, but how much does he have left? is it worth it?

  • danny

    Stackhouse would bring more to the table than A.i. ever could. whatta loser

  • Felix

    Yeah right Danny, one is a top fifty all time player who sells out arenas, the other… just isnt… Ill let you guess which one

  • Felix

    ever could? ever implies AI’s prime… really? old Jerry Stackhouse brings more than AI in his prime?

  • C-Mac

    if they don’t sign either Ai or sessions
    they’ll be…..well the knicks still i guess….

  • rikson

    AI in his Prime??? You sure havent seen AI around 2000…

  • rikson

    Plus how do you think a team with AI, Harrington and Hughes would fit?! In order to get them their touches theyll need to play with 3 balls… In this case Stack over AI – but id still go with Sessions!

  • Felix

    In 2007-08 AI went for 26.4 points, 7.1 assists, 2.o steals, played 82 games, shared the ball with Carmelo Anthony, and shot .458 from the field in the western conference (knicks play in the minor league eastern conference)… its not his fault the best big guy he ever played with was Dikembe Mutumbo in 2001- went to the finals that year and stole a game from Kobe and Shaq by the way

  • Felix

    how does he share with Harrington and Hughes? keep hughes on the bench

  • Felix

    Sessions is probably a pretty good move. he’s not a legend (like Iverson IS- you guys are just HATERS with no game) and he won’t ever be an all star, but he’s young and maybe he could be a good fit in D’Antoni’s system. Stack should have a job in the league, but why commit any long term money to him? its the Knicks, they’re probably f’ed no matter what they do

  • Felix

    I agree with Z, stacks a good fit as a roleplayer on a vet squad… don’t like him as a bad contract on a garbage squad… Stack had some good years but career shooting for stackhouse? try .409 and .306 from three (Iverson .425 and .313)

  • rikson

    Felix: But youll forget, that Denver had a damn packed roster, so people thought they should be contending! From that kind of view they were really REALLY disappointing… Im not gonna blaim that on AI, but surely he had his prime before, or otherwise he would have lead denver to the finals… cause thats what people expected and what he was supposed to do!

  • http://slam nyjoe

    Just another bad move by the Knicks. Always getting players too late in their career. Please give us Knick fans some relief. To respond to Felix real quick, A.I. will never be that guy,and although Denver had a damn good roster when he was there, without that big presence somewhere, they refused to be great!
