    Sad to say, my thoughts are that as long as Melo is the leader of this team, the Knicks will suck nuts.

    I don't think Vets minimum is enough for Novak.

    Yeah, he might have bad defense but he's still the #1 3-point shooter specialist.

    all he can is shoot 3's, he cant defend, he cant rebound

    he is a specialist, vets minimum type player

    Amar'e and his contract are impossible to get rid of. No NBA team is going to do that favor for the Knicks without demanding their next 5 first round draft picks from them. The only way I see the Knicks trading away Amar'e is if he gets back to averaging at least 20 ppg next season and the Knicks find a pursuer that's desperate to win a championship right away.

    NBA teams cannot go for these deals,
    simply too one sided

    I think there are teams that will take a fly at him.

    The reason he sucked all year is because of Melo. It doesn't need to go deeper than that.

    I don't think he's lost that much, he's still very close to the player he was last year.

    It's just that this isn't a good fit for him. Melo squeezes guys out, Melo is way too dominant for a guy like Amar'e to get his numbers.

    Amar'e can still play at a very high level in the right offense, and the team that will feature something like this offense can take a shot at him.

    I like that, let's dot it.

    Might not be an ideal team or a championship team, but it's by far better than everything our management has done in the past 10 years.

    I like the trade ideas but I just don't see anyone taking on that Amare (uninsured) contract. We're in a new era where owners don't want to pay max salaries anymore unless its a true superstar player. With a few more years still on that massive contract, it will put a heavy load on any team.

    I agree with knicksin60 that he'll have to get back to averaging 20 and 8 for some teams to maybe take a chance on him. I also believe that he can still be effective offensively under the right offense, BUT will that happen here?
