[quote]Felton is a nice player. Has heart, but let's not forget what Nelson did to him when ORL waxed CHA.Really RF was that bad? To the point where D-12 was double teamed and RF had to cover two players which meant Nelson had wide open looks? Sorry but this years draft is to weak to get a trusted PG out of!RF is what he is on top of that, Knicks can buy out Billups for 4 mil, not pick up his team option, and have some money to spend on a C this Summer (and we can use our 1st rounder to draft a PG).
Nuggets are greedy and will more likely trade JR to Chicago for a 1st.If Knicks are lucky, DEN doesn't want AR... We deal him for that 1st round pick DEN wants and we get an asset along with it.
Truely no one would cry if he just fell over from a heart attack.Eddy Curry goes. Nobody cares. If a piece of cake falls at 3am and nobody is around... does anyone notice what happens when those calories enter EC's buttocks?
They can have Gallo he plays no defense or aggressive offense to get to the charity stripe ( a white version of R. Lewis, just sit at the 3-pt line jacking up 3's), Fields our sleeper draft rookie avg 10ppg/7rpg, walker is a 3pt specialist at best!I think DEN then gets the choice: they get either Gallo or Fields and Walker. They'll have to pick one option. Take the budding star or the future solid starting dual role players.
Chandler we can keep since we have his Bird Rights and Walker can walk.I think the final piece of the puzzle will be either Chandler or Walker.
Ewing was what 37ish when he finally broke down? Also stars weren't jumping ship like they are now! Ever see Miller leave Indiana? Wilkins opting out to leave ATL? The Admiral leaving S.A? no those guys stayed till the end or till the organization traded them before they even asked leave! The Era was built in The Draft or Trades for "sleeper players"I realize this is alot. But NYK has no choice really. Amar'e is a STAR. Right now. We saw firsthand during the Ewing era the error of our ways (waiting to get another star to play alongside PE).
LAL blew up their roster? You call Kwame Brown and a low 1st rd pick for P. Gasol a blown up roster? How about a R.jefferson and Ricky Davis for one of the NBA's most physical and Highly defensive PF KG and NBA's best 3pt shooter blown up the roster? Yeah MIA blew up the roster to get 2 MVP caliber players and a role player, i'll give you that one but still waiting to be determined how this will work out! Also didnt back in the Late 90's we got players called A.houston, Camby, Sprewell, Childs, and LJ? a starting 5 there without Ewing.LAL, BOS & MIA blew up their rosters... NYK has to. NBA is a game where you must have 2 superstars playing at an elite level to have a shot. Felton-Gallo-Chandler or not elite.
LoL Gallo wont become a stud unless he plays in Dallas next to Dirk!It will stink if Gallo is a stud in 5 years. But it would be a total shame if Stoudemire's MVP caliber production goes for naught, and 2 years from now he starts to decline some and we failed to bring in the necessary pieces.
MIA hasn't proven anything yet but that they can win some season games! See me after the season after they are the champs! Remember the cavs were 60+ win teams for 2 years and were thumped from the playoffs!Sure, 25% chance Gallo-Chandler and free agents, along with Moz-Fields mature into a legit DET-like run starting next year. But odds are the Knicks will be a 45-50 win team next season with this group + B-type free agents. And would fail to beat MIA anyway.
MIA raised nothing but get beat by defensive minded teams! Sry Knicks we cant play D for nothing, its all about scoring the most.Our only hope is Carmelo really. MIA raised the stakes. Sure, we could pass and go through the same thing next year. Hope to get Paul or Williams. And that might even be better.... But, since we missed on Lebron, and then if we pass on Carmelo... what happens if we fail to land Deron or Paul... or if a tag is put in place... Now it's 2013 and Amar'e is the new Benard King.
