F*ck the Wilson Chandler haters...
This is what skill looks like.
so....if chandler is a part of our future, gallo is as good as gone.
I and others have explained that if we trade Gallo and other unnecessary pieces now, we can use Chandler's Bird Rights and lock him up at a reasonable price during the offseason.
expendable gallo.. and most of all, this statement sends a bullet at Denver... dont even think about us including chandler....
i think Will will settle more for about 7-8 mil starting will annual increase of 10%.. more like 45 over 5..if he gets 60 mil.. its gotta be over 6 years if the new CBA will allow it..
Its nice to wake up and see this....Chandler has been that dude all year
About time Wilson Chandler is recognize by management!I was happy as hell when Portland turned Walsh down in a
trade for Chandler for Rudy Fernandez. Portland wouldve had
alot of long winning streaks this season with Wilson Chandler.
I think the only guys in Chandler's draft class to get an extension
were Durant, Horford, Conley, and Noah. Guys like Jeff Green,
Oden (obviously), Marc Gasol, Stuckey, and Brooks also got
snubbed for an extension.
Guys like Chandler/ Brooks/ Gasol/ and Green are going to receiveDo the Knicks really need cap-space for the 2011 offseason?
$2M to $4M more per season then what they wouldve received in
an extension. What makes it bad is that the majority of their
owners are the ones who have been crying the most about
teams over paying players.
if so for who SF-Melo or C-Mark Gasol?
or should the Knicks give playingtime to more players on their roster
to lift the trade-value of players on the roster to trade on the deadline?
Do the Knicks really need to sign max FA SF-Melo?
The Knicks do have both sizes in SF on the roster..... in
6.7 Fields/ 6.8 Chandler/ 6.9 S.Williams/ 6.10 Gallo?
Its amazing ow all the gallo lovers cease to exist right now, I guess this makes me happy? As for Wilson I got on the bandwagon a long time ago as soon as I saw how well he recovered from his injury. The Knicks need to find a way to retain Chandler, they could start by putting him up on the All-Star Ballot and quit hyping overrated Gallo.
His emergence as a legitimate third option gives us the liberty to forget about Gallo and possibly not depend on getting Melo so much either. The Knicks have a legit big three of Stat, Ray and Will. All tree are level headed character guys who play well off each other and gives us a solid offensive core while providing reasonable defense. Fields is the perfect role player in that e plays right off our big three, getting rebounds, hustle plays and blending in our offense seamlessly.
Our WEAK LINK has always been Gallo. I'm not saying hes a bad player, but rather way to inconsistent and his offense is redundant as Chandler, Walker and Shawne Williams can all shoot threes at a reasonable percentage. If we can trade Gallo, Randolph and some draft picks for a Center and a back-up point guard we will have an elite 9 man rotation.
SF W. Chandler
C T. Chandler
PG Luke Ridnour
While I have been a pessimist for a long time, I think the time for pessimism is is over. Time to look at what we got.. and give Donnie Walsh his due as he as got to be in the run for executive of the year. As he took Isiah's Knicks and cleaned house top to bottom leaving us with
1. Young Talent (Chandler, Fields)
2. Leadership STAT and Felton
3. Winning Record 20-14
4. Cap Space The ability to sign Chandler and a Center or possibly Melo
