Thats where he's going.. So we can end all the melo discussion from here on out..
it feels good to look forward to cap space in the future.
We should be talking about how excited we are that training camp is just around the bend : )
F the Media
and F a Carmelo
There is a lot of Melo threads. Any time something new comes up there's another thread. These are rumors and assumptions and we shouldn't stress out about this. People need to have patience and wait to see where he goes.
If Melo doesn't end up on the Knicks, there are others the team need more. To have a strong roster the Knicks need a good sg and a center. Who knows maybe we'll end up with Chris Paul or Deron Williams, but for now all of our concentration should stay on the present Knicks roster as the new season begins soon.
A major reason it was/is so vital to get Anthony is because of our 'championship window', or 'contender window'.
It hinges upon our prized FA -- Amare. Who is almost 28 (might be already even).
We don't really have the luxury of slowly building for years. If we do, by the time our current players peak and we do secure a star, the big time players we had (Amare, eg) will be on the wrong side of 30 and just as we peaked on paper, our peak will have a downward trend due to age/time.
If we whiff again and miss out on Anthony, the implications put a huge amount of pressure on finding a way to trade/sign, say, CP3...Howard.
I'd prolly try to pry Noah away after this year and just pray and throw the kitchen sink after getting CP3/Deron.
