yo metro how do u just put a video in a post instead of having to put the link all the time???
He was a bright spot in an otherwise, terrible past couple years. Always played hard, always brought excitment and defense. although he wasn't going to be the savior of the knicks anytime soon, I'll miss him.
I'm not a fan of the trade at all. Walsh should have tried to package Balkman with Curry, before he traded him. The Nuggets got robbed in the Camby trade, so Walsh should have tried to rob the Nuggets with this trade, too. It should've been Balkman and Curry for Terean Green and Bobby Jones. Balkman doesn't even make much money. We basically traded Balkman for nothing. 2 million dollars in capspace doesn't do s#!t. Especially when you trade one of your few valuable players.
To everyone's surprise, Terean Green is a point guard, and Bobby Jones is a small forward. I'm shocked(sarcasm).
damn wtf, balkman for absolutely nothing?!??!?!?!what kinda bullshyt is dat, didnt Sacramento like em?!??!?!
Well this does put us back at 15 players on the roster, meaning the iminent waive of current players (read Steph) seems unlikely. Now ofcourse even if we only had three players on the roster I would still move Jerome James! But this to me deads the notion of a certain waive coming before camp
Let us never forget the fight this man brought to the team and the fire the burned inside him....Let us stop for a moment in silence...........
Alright now, for the million dollar question, what is going to happen to his whip?
I don't love or hate this move, honestly I think it will not make a difference in terms of wins and losses next season. Did Denver get the better of this deal...ofcourse it was intended to be a one sided deal as far as talent. And you have to imagine that after watching Balkman in the gym, in Summer League practices, and on film, Mike Dantoni did not think he would fit in his system.
Now had this deal been for D Lee I would've flipped! But I say all in all it was as fair as NBA trades can be, both teams got what they wanted out of it.
