    As much as I don't want to spend all our cap space on "mere" allstars it's going to be another big risk to wait for 2011 to get our 2nd max contract.
    GREAT POST!!!

    Finally people realize that Carmelo is NOT coming (as I stated in my previous post.)

    This is all 100% true. Donnie went all in for 2010 for a reason.


    And yes...Chris Paul signed a 4 year extension last year, so to all you people that think he is a free agent: "you are looking at an outdated list of 2011 free agents".

    Great post man.

    As I write this post, Lebron James and Carmelo Anthony are thinking about which Knick jersey numbers they're going to have once they sign max contracts with the Knicks.I think Lebron is more worried about which 5th avenue apartment he's going to move into this July than he is about winning a championship with the Cavs.I honestly believe that he and Melo have already given Donnie Walsh their verbal agreements and are just waiting until they become free agents in order to sign here.

    Ask yourself this question, who the helll would want to waste the rest of their career playing in Cleveland or Denver? The Cavs and Nuggets don't even have real fans.Have you gone to any of those teams' forums? It's a disgrace! Their game threads average around 5 or 6 posts.The only reason why those teams average big crowds at home games is because winning breeds bandwagoners and bandwagoners increase revenue.How many of these Nuggets fans were supporting their team when the Nuggets were 11-71?

    Lebron James and Carmelo Anthony would feel like complete idiots if they turned down such a great city in order to appease to the Cleveland and Denver fans.This is why I feel that there is at least a 70 percent chance that one of those two will be a Knick.

    70% chance? I think you're sadly mistaken. I know you are using overstatement to strengthen your argument, but I think the most important thing on LeBron's mind is the road to the championship with the Cavs that lies ahead. He wants to bring a championship to Cleveland SO badly.

    Regardless of the fans in Denver, Denver can offer more money, and a solid nucleus that has proven it can be a winner in this league. Denver is 2nd in the West, and is a lot of people's darkhorse candidate to win it all.

    Why would Carmelo opt out to take LESS money, with no security from a new CBA agreement to be LeBron's sidekick? He's shown he's clearly a player to build around.

    Most importantly, how do you plan on receiving this money to pay for Melo's max contract? Our only expiring contract is Eddy Curry who could possibly be dealt.

    We dealt Jeffries expiring 2011 contract and 2 key draft picks for a reason. We wanted nothing to do with 2011. Your evidence supporting the Melo, Bron and Walsh agreement is complete BS considering we've made moves to put ourselves in a WORSE position for 2011.

    The optimists on this thread are taking Melo's words completely out of context. Every player wants to play in NYC. It's the Mecca. But how many players have ACTUALLY gone to NY to play? Especially under the potential circumstances that Melo will face in 2011. All signs indicate that Melo will not be joining the Knicks.

Only if LeBron signs then break the bank in 2010.
    I think there's a legitimate likelihood to signing Bosh and surrounding him with necessary pieces. Considering his self promotion to the ASG in a "vote for me" campaign (which was **** btw) a couple years back, he's keen for exposure. NYC will give him exactly that.

    I'd also like to see it happen just to irritate that girly craptor fan that showed up here. I'll be sending him a private message with plenty of expletives and even include a few "c bombs"...

    Signing him on will leave us even more desperate for a center though because an S&T for Lee is the most likely scenario.

    The only possibility of Carmelo coming to the Knicks would be if LeBron chose not to.

    Carmelo isn't going to play second fiddle to LeBron. He's too good of a player for that.
