I think that's entirely fair.A team of Billups, Melo, Amare, Fields, Turiaf + scraps is not contending for anything and will be much worse than many people on this site want to believe.
If his greed eliminates any chance at building a contender, then I'm sorry, I can't forgive him. If not, then great. I'll support him 100%. But as I said, the verdict is not in yet for me.
I voiced my disdain for the circumstances of Melo's NY arrival. But the proceeding Buzzer Beaters, big nights, Heat win - of course - the flashes of defensive brilliance, all had me nay saying my own nay saying. A bit of unconditional O&B love, I suppose. I'm no exception.
But, to all those who've bothered to actually read LJ's post(s), he is, as he always has, speaking the cold had truth.
Having agreed with what you've said, I'm still not willing to slander him until the hammer's fallen. I'll reserve final judgement until then.
A world of talent, potential immeasurable, a salary that should inspire, and a new CBA that will basically determine whether or not the Knicks ultimately failed to seize their window of opportunity.
A lot of pressure for one man's shoulders.
○ What do you say to the notion of Amar'e having an abysmal season? You'd almost consider the MAX contract he received worse with that history of injuries. And now the bad back to add to his repertoire. Which, out of his and Melo's contracts, holds the worst worst case scenario?
