I bet it's really attractive to sign an extension in NJ, play in Newark with Lopez and a few mid 30 yr-old vets... Watch the HEAT go the the Finals... With the hope that in 2012, or 2013, or maybe 2014 you'll finally play a game in Brooklyn, and will get to play with a bunch of draft picks from the weakest draft class in the last 30 years.
I bet NO just can't wait to trade Paul to NJ.... That's what he'll be told, but when the time comes Melo has to think NO will do to CP3 exactly what DEN did to him, and that's deal him to someplace they can get the most assets from.
AND... even if he gets Paul, and moves to Brooklyn and is ready to compete in 2013... They still wont have enough to beat the Heat.
OR.... He could just wait 6 months, sign with the Knicks, and he competes for the championship come November.
Sounds like a no-brainer to me, no matter what the Russian and Jay-Z have to say.
