    Default Knicks Should have kept Gallo , Walsh was a SemiGood GM

    Yet another appallingly bad decision for which Donnie Walsh never gets lambasted because the media protects him: picking Fields as a keeper over Gallinari.

    Sorry Fields but we could use Melo at the 2 and Gallo at the 3

    That's assuming Fields swapped for Gallo got the deal done.

    we wouldent have gotten melo if we didnt offer them gallo, gallo was the main piece. There no doubt in my mind if we didnt offer them gallo he would be a net right now and we would have derron williams.

    No.. It was directed at all those who keep harping on how much we gave up and who in particular. We got frickin Melo. I don't wanna hear about those guys anymore.

    I wanted to keep Fields the most. You never knew what you were gonna get with Gallo. A lot of games he didn't seem to call for the ball and didn't get it, a lot of games he'd shoot a bunch of threes whether they were going in or not, and there was some games where he took it to the basket and couldn't be stopped.

    Fields showed a lot of IQ and turned out to be a GREAT pick. He could turn into one of those special late picks like Monta.

    Hindsight is 20/20 but I'm gonna go against the grain and say this.

    If the new cap is $70-$75 Million and we have $40 million basically invested in 2 players the Knicks have to be smart about this to not spend more than $10 million on any single player..... Honestly paying $7 to a good player should be the max.....

    Unless some sort of exemptions or salary grandfather clause is added.

    The problem with not giving up Gallo is that I believe I read somewhere that Carmelo was pretty close to ending up as a Net...if Carmelo was over in Jersey, we'd be PISSED even if we got Deron Williams as a consolation prize. D-Will is a good player but he's not dynamic like Melo is.

    I think D-Will is more than a consolation prize.
