    Jeff Van Gundy said it best on Mike & Mike this morning... The pieces NY gave up can be replaced. Nice productive players who do things well. What NY got is not easily acquired. A legitimate perimter threat that must be double-teamed. Those players aren't available often.

    I'm wrong? what team president ditches the team when they are about to make a trade that changes the course of the franchise? so what if you disagree on the trade, at least show up and save face. insubordination.

    I concur sir. A player like 'Melo is once in a decade. Players like Chandler , Gallinari or who ever we gave up comes in dozens every year. We got a bona fide superstars and we gave up role players.

    We just drafted a Wilson Chandler in the 2nd round (Landry Fields). Odds are we can replace a Felton or Mozgov if we make a shrewd waiver wire signing and draft well in the 1st round this season.

    There was only 1 way to get Carmelo Anthony, or a player of his caliber... If anyone thinks adding Dalembert and signing Jamal Crawford was going to put us in the position to win a title next year... they're crazy!

    We have a lot of work to do, but moving fwd the Knicks have 3 LEGIT starters to build around (Fields, Carmelo & Amar'e). PG should be fine (Billups for now and then Deron/Paul later). This issue remains: FIND A CENTER.

    Finding a serviceable center who will rebound, defend and block shots is a lot easier than finding a true #1a option.

    Turiaf/Williams will suffice this year.

    THEN, find a bench and a few snipers. Shawne Williams looks like he should be just fine, and even give us more than a sniper. Could he be a Bowen type player?

    WITH THAT SAID, I do think we paid 1.50 on the dollar. That we should have got Carmelo at half the price. DOLAN screwed the whole thing up. Dolan's father cost Ewing a title, and now the son might have spoiled any shot this current squad has at winning a title. Maybe we get lucky and a few vets come aboard, and we hit another HR in the draft. Time will tell.

    I doubt we get Carmelo had we rolled the dice and waited for free agency, but STILL... We should have been able to keep either Gallo or Felton, and if we dealt Felton we should have been able to hold on to Curry's expiring deal. In other words, Gallo and Curry or Felton and MOZ, we should have been able to retain one of those pairs. Bad job Dolan. He gets played again.

    STOP IT.!!!

    We don't need to keep crying over the spilled milk of a bunch of role players. We knew from the beginning that this was not going to be a simple trade. So we gave up some starters...we got a SUPERSTAR to go along with our other SUPERSTAR!!! Not to many teams in this league can say that. We are back on the map people. Charles Barkley can't say **IT about this. ESPN will start showing more highlights from the garden now. And you will start to see more Knick Jerseys out in the street than Yankee hats (well that may be a bit over the top)

    Point is everything we gave up can be replaced in a season or 2. However what we got ... man is priceless. 2/3 of the puzzle is in place and this team looks exciting on paper and I'm sure once the orange and blue uniforms take to the floor we will soon forget about those role players (who shall not be named in this post).

    NEW YORK is back with a vengeance!!!

    Yeah, it's crazy how talking heads screamed that NYK did not have the assets to make this tarde, that we didn't have anything attractive... NOw they say we gave up too much? Even claim that Carmelo doesn't make us better? Wont work with STAT? We haven't improved? The same people who said STAT wasn't a star, was more a good player made great by NASH.

    These guys...

    If the Nyets made this deal... great trade. Good for NBA. DEN got a sweet load. COME ON? Gallo is better than anything they'll draft with those 4 picks. WEEK draft class this year and next. Mozgov is probably better than favors, who is doing nothing this year.

    As for NY, saying Melo adds nothing... INSANE. Did Kobe win w/out Shaq or Gasol? NOPE> Lakers missed playoffs even. Melo arrived in DEN and they won 15 games, his rookie year he had them in the playoffs. People just like to hear themselves talk.

    There is still nothing about Melo on the official Knicks website. Plus the roster still has Mozgov, Gallo etc. on it.

    How slow are the Knicks PR guys?

    I want an interview or video with Melo.

    Something like ' Watch out the Knicks are coming! It's good to be home'

    I have a very positive feeling about either CP3 or the Sheriff coming to NY in the Summer via trade.

    my sentiments exactly.....but hey, u gatta give to get. We definitely will be calling either earl barron or jerome jordan in the next few days. The steal in this draft other than melo was the trade for corey brewer. he is a thief on the ball.

    It's funny. Talking heads acting like we traded Charles Oakley... We dealt away Timofey Mozgov- the same dude who couldn't even start for a Russian D-league squad last season.

    They forget to mention what we got:

    Billups is better than Felton
    Sheldon Williams is better than Mozgov
    Melo better than Gallo
    Brewer is pretty good (although not better than Chandler).

    Brewer will help.

    Shawne Williams will slide into Gallo's role. Brewer will assume Chandler's spot. Sheldon Williams will gobble up MOZ's minutes.

    Come 4th quarter, and the playoffs.. I'll take Billups-Melo over Gallo-Felton.

    I respect Lupica but the excitement about the Knicks and Melo is undeniable.

    Look at KOL, new members, more of them logging on, that Melodrama thread was the longest I've seen in 6 years.

    DWill and CP3 saying they want to come to NY now.

    MSG is going to rock every night.

    The Knicks will be a regular on national TV like Miami, LA and Boston.

    This one trade has made the Knicks relevent again.

    Melo will wear #13

    Point One.

    We kept landry fields. Fields will develop into what rajon rondo is to the celtics for us.

    Point two.
    With melo playing, gallo will have nowhere in the rotation to play. Wilson chandler was leaving anyway if we were signing melo. so losing them both is not that big of a deal

    Point 3.
    We get corey brewer for eddy curry and anthony ''mr. potential'' randolph. brewer is a legit defender who is top 10 in steals despite coming off the bench playing 24 mins per game. Per 48 minutes, brewer leads the nba in steals. Everyone ahead of him are starters on their teams. With brewer and a returning azubuike, we are deep in the back court.

    This was a good trade, a once in a decade type of trade that takes you from missing the playoffs for years on end, to championship title talks.

    Thank god for dolan and isiah
