I don't think they'll be bringing back Cole Aldrich either.
None of those teams had to trade for players who came from the lottery, they picked them straight from the crop.
Which if you used your freaking brain(EVER)..... in order for you to get such players(not drafted by the team) you have to wait until they came off their rookie scale salary or after an extension is signed(expires)... to have a realistic shot at snagging them from the team who drafted them. Ask yourself how long that would take?
Dumb Da Dumb Dumb Duuuummmmmbbbbb!!!!!!!!!
So u say tomorow, carmelo anthony BIG-EGO is going on the road.
The I wanna be the bigman on campus are going to Derek Rose/rookie high scorer SF-Doug McDermott team?
then going to Hardin/Howard team?
then going to Kobe/ROY Julius Randall team?
then stopping at CP3/Griffin's racist owner team?
Yeah, the Knicks are stuck with ISO-Melo's ballhoggin and poor decision-making for another season.
Without Melo, the Knicks forwards (Stat/Bargs/Earley/Ante) would give us close to 50 points per game on 47% shooting. With Melo taking all the fowards minutes we average less than 35 points per game from our PF & SF rotation.
You then tried to be cute and asked where does landing in the lottery get teams and how will they attract free agents. I slapped the taste out of your mouth when I showed you a list of teams who have done just fine with such approach.
Now you're trying to take back roads to dead ends and tunneling underground like a mole to an anaconda's den
Chief you need to get in early on the CAnthony jerseys as in Cleanthony not Carmelo Anthony. The kid was a Bulls fan despite growing up in the Bronx and MJ was his idol according to this quote.
Early, however, wasn’t walking around in a Knicks jersey as a kid.
“I started watching basketball at 4, 5 — Michael was still playing then and I was a big Michael fan and my mom was a big Knicks woman,’’ Early said. “She loved the Knicks. I had an interest in them, but it wasn’t my go-to team.’’
