My opinion is that Gallo + Randolph + Douglas > Melo. The 3 of them combined is better for this Knick team than Melo alone. You do realize that if that trade were to go through our bench would be Mason and Turiaf with Rautins as our backup PG? Right? We wouldn't be winning anything with that. A first round exit in the playoffs, just like the current team.
Melo isn't the "be all and end all" for the Knicks. There are better options.
