Knicks Bucking For Big Dawg - Peter Vecsey

June 23, 2002 -- SO, there you go and here I am, idly watching my imaginary Escalade's 22-inch dubs go round and round, uncomplainingly waiting for the NBA to come to its collective draft senses four days from now.
And I'm thinking the Knicks sure have a lot of seepage of secrets for a team whose kiddy proprietor and president are outfitted with silencers and their employers are tightly muzzled.

Not that their leaks are always on the strict up-and-up. As noted in this space a couple days ago, they say the Knicks turned down Milwaukee's proposition of Glenn Robinson for Latrell Sprewell. The Bucks, on the other hand, maintain they declined a much larger deal that was initiated by the Knicks and are still waiting for Scott Layden to get back to them regarding a counteroffer centering on Marcus Camby.

I'm sorry but can the Bucks take on Camby and all his problems? Sure he would be a great fit with Allen and Cassell but I don't know if he would last and 82 game season. What about the playoffs?

If Sprewell goes I would be also shocked. I think Big Dawg is a better overall player. Sprewell is great in his own way but I think he wouldnt do as good a job at SF than Glenn would do.

BIG-DAWG is BETTER then Spre!

Yes Spre has MORE heart then Glenn,and yes hes a BETTER leader,but Glenn is the BETTER player.Glenn's D over the past few seasons has gotten much better,not to mention the fact that hes AWESOME from 3pt land,and only 2nd to M.J. when it comes to the mid range game.

Also I dont think Cassell and Spre on the same team would be a good thing!:no:They both like to lead and they both have tempers,I see them CHOKING each other!:laugh:

Well, I think both teams get what they want. Bucks get a better leader and the Knicks actually get a better player....

Spree

Sprewell isn't ugly. However, Cassell and Johnson are really hideous.

I'm not sure if Big Dawg is a better player than Sprewell. Sprewell is more all-around player. I'd say that they are about the same.

Glenn Robinson has improved his defense drastically over the past 2-3 years. He has become a complete player and a floor leader. A comparison between the two is hard...because Sprewell is a fast, shooter/slasher type, while Glenn has the inside outside game concentrating on posting up, occasionally grabbing boards too...

Big Dawg would be a good fit for New York. I don't think Milwaukee needs another shooter.

Exactly

Exactly, they are two different players. So, I guess it's hard to compare. If you want a more all-around player...Sprewell is better. But, if you want a better shooter...Robinson is better.

Sprewell is more of a shooter...robinson is more of a low post big body...
