Melo & JR are regular-season winners, their NBA career say they are bad postseason players.
The past 2 seasons Lebron & Wade performance has become elite PG in the NBA. Miami dont need Nash, they need a young point-foward or combo-guard like Ginobli, Shump, or restricted FA Terrence Williams.
I can understand Nash view of joining a confused Knicks organization.
If Nash dont want to share the PG duties with Lin-Sanity then thats on Nash.
I like all Nash strong points, but Nash career weakness of playing without a center in the lineup....was the missing talent Nash needed to visit the FINALS. This was Nash first season in his long career where he played decent at getting a center involve. Nash played like shiiiit with Shaq, Lopez, and Gortat first season as a Suns. No loss!
If Novak goes to the Heat or to the next-team.....Ill be wearing his #16 Knicks Jersey when he visit MSG. The only one I will turn on will be our G.M. Grunwald for not extending Novak & Lin's contract an extra year during Lin-Sanity moment. Their waiver contracts were like 10 day contracts.
To anyone saying Nash is too old, think about when the last time we won a championship.
How can you see Nash meshing with LeBron but not Carmelo, LeBron holds on to the ball too much and would turn Nash into an off the ball player, regardless i don't want him anyway, we don't anymore defensive liabilities just stick with Lin if not go after Lowry, Curry or Hinrich all who may be available for us
Nash would be nice but if he doesnt want NY, then let him to go to Dallas or Miami or whatever....i really don't care
Old age or not, Nash's game is dependent on good spot up shooters and players movement. We have neither.
The only thing getting Nash would do is putting Knicks over the cap.
I will tell you that Nash is not going to Heat, because I think he will go where he can find comfort and play some style that is good for him. I do not think Nash will run to the "sure thing" for a championship. Heat is not a good fit for him just like Knicks is not a good fit for him.
I've already lost all respect for Battier and Turiaf.
If Nash and Novak join them too I hope they tear a ligament or something. It's just not fair and against the spirit of the league to form a superteam somewhere. Those ****ing Heat somehow managed to cheat and get that done...**** the salary cap, it's useless. Only thing it does is hurt teams like the Lakers, Knicks, Bulls and a couple others.
We can't compete with Miami because of the damn cap, but they cheated the cap...**** it.
The NBA should just allow a transfer system like in European Soccer so Dolan could buy us a few championships...get Kyrie for $40 million, Bynum for $50 million, Iggy for $40 million, sell Amar'e for $20-30 million, get Kevin Love for $60-70 million etc. our options would be countless and the best thing about it is Dolan could do all this financially.
**** the small market teams, I only care about the Knicks. I couldn't care less whether Cleveland and Minnesota would have to play in front of 3000 people every night and finish bottom for the next 10+ years.
With the way Miami cheated their way around the cap all other big market teams got ****ed for the next 5 years (until Wade, Bosh, Lebitch start to age).
They might win it this year, they'll get even better role players next year...they're as good as Team USA ca 2004. It's ridiculous.
We have plenty of money to spend but we're not allowed to....smh
If Novak comes off the bench, he will become option 1, 2. or 3 for most of the teams. If playoffs was any indication of whats coming for him, a high screen by Tyson is the most he will ever get from Woodson.
It's pathetic to watch the best 3 shooter in the league and not getting plays designed for him!
Go where a team will appreciate your talent, Novak!
If Nash goes to the Heat, I can seriously see them winning 73-75 games if healthy.
would the greatest passing/offensive and just the best 1-2-3 combo in NBA history.
Our offense is the problem.
and LeBron doesn't hold the ball too long, you're 100% wrong. LeBron has high IQ and is always producing. This is a 6"8 265 lb PG/SG/SF guy who averages 27+ ppg and 7 + assist...get lost dude, Nash and LeBron would easily be the greatest passing duo and would get nothing but EASY shots for Miami being the elite passers they are, along with Wade who's a great passer also.
BALL MOVEMENT at its best folks, something Melo kills.
