    If the Nets get Howard the nets management deserves 5 GM of the year awards. They took a huge gamble in getting williams when they traded everyone for him with the possibility he would still leave, now they have a chance to be a 5th seed in the east and with Howard become a true Heat stopper along with CHI. Knicks management need to take notes.

    They will need to land the big fish Howard to get the props, otherwise they just put together a team with 1st round playoff exit potential & not much else (similar to the Knicks at the current moment). In order to validate all these moves, the Nets have to get Dwight Howard in a trade. They won't be able to land him as a free agent because of the amount of salaries they will have tied up in D Will, Joe Johnson & Gerald Wallace, so they have no other choice. It's Dwight or Bust now for the Brooklyn Nets. If they can pull this off then they definitely deserve all the props they can get.

    If they get dwight, we will be a complete embarrassment because that team and those parts fit together so much better than what we have its not even funny. THeyll have arguably the best point guard and center, a top 5 SG and top 10 PF... Their games all fit specific roles and wont detract from each other.. while we have Tyson and two guys who are great but don't play well together AT ALL.

    Especially if we loose lin and don't get Nash, which is looking like it might happen....

    Ugh I just want to vomit...

    Back in 2003 English soccer club Chelsea FC announced that Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich became the only owner of the club. Haters started calling them Chelsky and the club became a major target of jokes in the EPL.
    Within nine years Abramovich invested approximately 2B in Chelsea FC and last season they won their first Champions League title...
    Considering that Prokhorov is even richer than Abramovich money will never be an issue. $100M luxury tax is what he calls small change.

    no prob but lets just be real. The Nets are making legitimate moves and the Knicks aren't and probably should be adding a piece or 2. With or without Dwight, they're a pretty good team. Their pieces actually complement each other unlike the Knicks. Shumpert and Baron are still hurt, Lin signed an offer sheet with Houston and the knicks still don't have a reliable PG. Depending on how healthy Boston stays, Roses health, if Hibbert returns to Indy the nets can be a top 4 or 3 team in the east.

    This is wht I'm saying. The pieces are fitting like a puzzle and their games complement each other. DWill, scoring/passing/slashing PG, Joe Johnson is a perimeter type SG who's on the outside more, Wallace is the defensive stopper, rebounder and slasher, Howard is the big colossal dominant force who rebounds and defends. If DH comes the Nets are a top 2 or 3 team in the East, easily. Without Dwight they are still a top 4 in the east.

    And i would be embarrassed for the knicks as well. The Knicks wil be the markee team but the Nets will probably be better.

    Holy **** dude.

    (pause)

    The gap between Deron and Lin is so large.

    But you can't just run down lineups like that. It's negating our biggest issue -- THE issue: our team chemistry, and not how players have performed through their careers, but who these players actually are, now, playing collectively on our squad.

    Sure, hope for the best, and I still think, in theory, Amare and Melo can and should be able to dominate playing together.....

    But they haven't.

    And Amare has played like **** for a *long* time now, and has never thrived alongside Melo. Likewise, barring stretches of typical Melo excellence, Melo has *not* played like Melo here.

    Howard
    Wallace
    Johnson
    Deron

    That lineup fits like a glove.

    If you run down lineups like you did, you could compare us to even OKC and MIA, and ya, we "should" be just as good and be there right alongside them.

    I PRAY Melo and Amare prove me wrong, and do what I've always said they would do together -- but I have been dead wrong in my formerly-optimsitic assessment that if Melo came here, he and Amare would beast like gods alongside each other.

    Melo dominating in his sweet spots; Amare being the most efficient and dominant inside scoring prescense in the NBA; and Amare's mid jumper being the perfect compliment to allowing Melo room when he works on the inside.

    AMEN.

    So far it's taken 2 coaches to make absolutely nothing happen between them. Woodson had better have that shiny head down in a playbook.

    1 coach's system didn't

    the other didn't get a chance to mesh the 2 as STAT was hurt

    I got faith in our core Amar'e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony will both be great this year I'm talking All-NBA players for us
