I wouldn't normally bump this thread, but this was a surprise to me. I thought I'd share with others who watched Baker for so many years.

Scott Perry, the Knicks GM, named Baker as one of their 5 core players going forward.

If you'd rather I not post things like this in the future, I will not. Just thought this might be of interest to MVC fans.

Rooting for him. He's the only player who'll get me to watch an NBA game.

Good for him. Ron Baker is probably my favorite non bears mvc player of all time.

Too bad he's stuck in the wasteland that is Knicks basketball. I would think that would be depressing to someone like Ron that had won at every level pre NBA. Probably more opportunity with a loser though at this early stage of his career. I don't think the Knicks have a chance at turning it around until they can dump Carmelo.

They just dumped Carmelo. Traded him to OKC for a post player, a power forward and a second round pick next year. The power forward is Doug McDermott, who, in his college career, had fewer blocked shots than Conner Frankamp.

That's good news for the Knicks and Ron IMO.
