May as well be the one to post it.

4yrs/42M. Pretty ballin' deal. Gallo could have played the money game, waited till FA, and pounced on free agency, amidst desperate teams like the Nets.

About half of Melo's annual salary, fwiw.

You have to wonder about what could have been:

D-Will
Fields
Gallo
Amare
Chandler

Moz, Douglas, Shumpert, Novak off the bench. And a 2012 1st rounder.

I'll just say it. That is the best team in the NBA. And as "homegrown" and fun as even OKC.

4year (minimum) prime, of upper crust contention.

The stank of James Dolan lives on, as we still continue to navigate our franchise and roster to something resembling a complete NBA team.
