I was listening to him yesterday and he was surprisingly talking Knicks basketball. He said that Denver is in LOVE with Fields and he would have to be included in a deal for Melo. Don't know how much thats worth coming out of his mouth but pretty interesting.
I'm surprised people still listen to that tool!
Who cares what DEN "likes" ... Fields isn't going anywhere. His presence makes Walsh look like a genius, and coach loves him. He's a poor man's S-Marion.
Fields is way more valuable than Chandler and Gallo, b/c he makes an impact on the game w/out needing the ball.
Felton-Stat-Melo need Turiaf/Fields to fullfill the dream. Thsoe 2 guys compliment the next big-3.
It will be interesting. I guess if we could get Melo for Fields, Randolph, and a draft pick, we might cave b/c it means we make a run at the title this year, AND we make Melo happy getting him here this season.
Is that worth giving up on Fields? I guess.
But, still.... I would think Melo is smart enough to think if he wants to win a TITLE.... then just refuse to go anywhere. Screw DEN. Sign here as a free agent.
Of course, this is a huge risk. He might lose 30-50 million, given uncertainty of everything related to contracts and next season.
SO, what to do? Tough call. BUt if it means getting Melo, while keeping 2 of the 5 (Gallo, Chandler, Fields, Randolph, Douglas) then it must be done.
Are you talking about WFAN the radio station that only talks Yankees and Mets 24/7/365?
I think they will really want Gallo or Wilson, though. Someone who can and has lit up scoreboards and dominated games, has a loftier pedigree -- if not just so they don't get flamed by their fans and the media.
Wilson will be the man. He really wouldn't be in our plans to re-sign and keep regardless.
Fields, Wilson, 1st.
If Melo can play it to the bone and take the risk in waiting to sign after the season, obviously. But this would be a tremendous compromise and assurance for us.
Glenn Davis? Tyson Chandler?
Turiaf, Douglas, Walker, AR, Moz off the bench, and whomever we get with our 2nd rounders.
55 wins? 60 wins?
Yankees, and to a lesser degree, Giants, naturally have to get play, too; but you're a second class citizen if it's not Met-Jet time.
Steve Summers is a good Knick (and Ranger) fan, though. But he can't resist piling on with the Met and Jet homers 99% of the time.
That station is a hot mess. Still listen, but...a hot mess.
Sad when a quasi-sports talk morning duo, and a spot guest star in Carl Banks are the shining lights.
I would be all over that deal. Fields as the main asset for Melo, I don't want to hate on Fields but there are a lot of guys like Frye, Chase Budinger etc that have good rookie seasons and then fall off. Getting Melo for say Fields/Curry and Bill Walker would be a great deal for the Knicks.
Mac and Tierney are talking Knicks on Espn 1050
When the Knicks stopped doing their games on fan Francesa and mad dog stopped talking Knicks. I'm out here in EAstern pa, 4 miles away from work and when driving home i sometimes listen to him, I usually switch him off halfway home, seriously. 1050 i get on the internet, a great listen. M. Kaye is the man along with many of the other guys. A lot of Knick talk.
