Don't be surprised about a little word....Loyalty. Phil brought Gasol 2 championships with another top tier player. He's reconstructing a Faker type team. Odom, Peace, most likely Gasol with Melo. Amare', big guards with Iman,Smith a floor spacer in Bargnani.
Right up Phil's alley....just come into a situation where the star power is already there and all he needs to do is put it together. He's going to pull all the strings he can....He's even going to hire Steve Kerr so he can coach through him. That is what you call a hostile takeover in a sense. So don't let Gasol's rant about being on a contender fool you. The Knicks will look like a contender on paper just like the Fakers did with Howard.
Plus....from one Spurs fan to another....when to we ever land anyone of a caliber of a Gasol? The Spurs are a more of a "Blindside" acquisition type of team, and I don't expect that to ever change....but it's fun hope it will.
