The man who shut down Memphis Grizzlies fans’ hopes and dreams is on the loose, and looking to sign with a contender! Naturally, he’s decided to consider the New York Knicks. Kenyon Martin played fantastic lockdown defense on Zach Randolph in last year’s Clippers/Grizzlies series, averaging 4.5 Points, 3.2 Rebounds, and 1.7 Blocks a game. The type of defense that hasn’t been seen Damon Stoudamire last went through the airport.
Kenyon is ready, he’s healthy, and he has the Jason Kidd connection. The same duo that once took the former New Jersey Nets to the trials and tribulations of a Finals Series, can reconnect and experience nostalgia fever run wild. Yes, what Kidd and Martin did for the tri-state area will be remembered for generations to come. Remembered, that is, by the same group of fans who would leave early in a triple overtime of a Finals Game 7 if it meant no traffic.
The Lakers are pursuing Kenyon Martin. The Knicks are likely too. But will he sign for the vet min? He makes a lot of sense for both teams.

All the Knicks have to do to fulfill the prophecy of becoming the Denver Nuggets, is beat the Lakers out to this signing. Martin could push the Knicks over the top. Imagine Melo, JR, and KMart reunited again, it’s a dream come true, just ask George Karl! He can still see JR Smith chucking threes in his sleep, sometimes they go in, sometimes they don’t. It’s the thought that counts.
