Gotta look beyond numbers fellas
Melo puts pressure on opposing D in a way Love can't
Statistically they are comparable but Melo changes the game just being on the court
Love is David Lee with 3 pt range...biggest misleader in Sports is a player who puts up great numbers on a bad squad!
Melo's value to us transcends his numbers (even though his numbers are sick too)
Would you trade Kidd for JJ Berea or Ridnour? No!
How bout Tyson for Greg Monroe? No!!!
Love is younger so which just means he has a lot of growing. I'll take the ready made superstar!
Are you guys serious about this trade? K.Love is a fantastic player, but trading Melo? I would trade Melo only for L.James. Maybe Durant. Thats it. Melo is a difference maker, especially at the end of the game.
Let me ask you a question. Who would you want to have a ball at the end of the game with time winding down- Melo or Love?
I've liked Love since I picked him up in a fantasy draft in that year he broke out. 15 boards a game and wins the 3 point contest on the side? Thats crazy. With that said, you'd be bat**** crazy to do that after the season Melo's had. Unless things come crashing on us, there's no way Melo and trade come up in the same sentence. Other than Melo , I'd make the entire roster expendable if we had a chance to get Love. Twolves wouldn't dream of trading him though. There's too much invested in both Rubio and Love
I like how people call these stats empty are the same people who can't make an NBA 3pt shot and would be molested by Love on the boards.
Nothing empty about stats...don't believe that propoganda. Love is a great player.
and LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul > Carmelo Anthony
Not seen this posted elsewhere on the forum, but I have seen some rumours going around other sites that the Suns are considering trading Jared Dudley and the Knicks are interested, possibly parting with one/a combination of Novak, Brewer, Camby, Copeland. Shumpert also mentioned by some posters on other sites, one example I think I saw from someone was Shumpert and Novak for Dudley and Morris from the Suns, but I'd be very reluctant to let Shumpert go, at least until he really gets back in rhythm and going at the level he was at the end of last season. he has much more to offer this team than he is able to show at the moment.
Honestly, my knowledge of players outside of the Knicks isn't great, would you pull the trigger on a trade involving any of our guys for Dudley? Would he add something to this team? Would the Suns accept anything we have to offer?
Shump for Dudley......GOD NO!!!!!!
Sounds like twitter BS. Trade Shump and kiss any chance of a playoff run good bye.

During today's game against the Clippers the announcers mention the Knicks need to get bigger and I agree. They mention the Jazz to be a team to look to because they have many. Now that Amare is showing some promise (he's playing well), we could possibly get rid of his contract by trading him for Al Jefferson. Al is also coming off a bad contract ending this season, this not only helps the Knicks but also saves money. We would also give up Shump but get a good deal back with Favors and Foye.
The Jazz will still have plenty of money to spend, stay young, and can possibly get more out of Amare playing the Center position. Stat is still a star player, just not on the Knicks. The team is going to have to rebuild and having Stat for next season will make it easier.
Kidd or Foye
Jefferson (remember he can shoot mid range)
Can we make a package and send Novack, Shumpert and J.R.??? Defense is down and scoring is down.
