    Donnie will NEVER give up D'Antoni's God son. Heck, I don't think their is a player in this league that the Knicks FO would trade Gallo for. This organization is so poorly run it's ridiculous. I'm tired of our FO f*cking this team up. Get ready for another 5 years of borderline medicrocity because that's the best our team will ever be. You guys better just forget about all this Melo hype, he ain't coming here.

    You have to have a little patience. When you are negotiating you can't always take the first offer you get because usually they will high ball you to try to get more out of you.

    Also, if we don't pickup billups option for next year, we would have more flexability this summer and he can go back to denver in the summer

    That said, bilups would play here. Denver doesn't want to be the one to not exercise his team option, so there no hard feeling towards mgmt and he can return there and roll into a front office job

    Walsh. You gotta do this. Seems like the best trade we can get without gutting our roster

    For the stretch

    Bilups
    Fields
    Melo
    Amare
    Tmoz-baron

    I'm ready to roll with that to finish up this year.

    This is a good lineup.

    Far better than the one we will be sending out next game

    Billups can be key in the post season. And we might shock some people.

    Do it donnie
    fields would likely be the 3rd starter. good move by walsh

    I understand what you're saying but everyone knows that Denver wants Gallo and our FO would rather keep Gallo than trade him for anyone. Family and business doesn't mix and that's exactly what's happening to us. Anyone we have other than Stat should be trade-able at this point...but how many times have we heard Gallo is untradeable? What kind of garbage is that? He's not an all-star and he's an all around streaky player at best.

    Why can't we just offer them a fair deal already? Everyone here that thinks Melo is just going to leave that money sitting on the table when there's going to be no basketball next season is crazy. If we don't send them a realistic counter offer, Melo might really consider going to the Nets. We're just making his decision easier. If we don't get him within 7 days or so of the deadline I believe we're not going to get him.

    What you say here is very true and at times I feel like the organization does act like galo is way better than he is, but one thing you can't argue is that next to Felton and Stat, Galo right now is our 3rd best player on the team, at least in my eyes. I'm with you and don't want Galo to be the deal breaker either, but what's actually really killing me is Felton. I have never been high on Billups, and I'm never for trading a very young player whose numbers have been getting better every year. Keep in mind that they are also asking for a 3rd starter so that would mean either fields or Mos would have to go in the proposed trade in additon to a first rounder we would have to get from Minnesota probably by trading them Randolph. If the Knicks can somehow get rid of Chandler in the package instead of Galo and not have to give up a 3rd starter, then I think it would be a fair deal.

    How about this trade proposal?

    Knicks get:
    Billups
    Melo

    Denver gets:
    Felton
    Chandler
    1st Rd Pick
    2nd Rd Pick
    Curry

    I think that is more than fair.

    Here is my problem with that article. Yes the Knicks are the num 1 scoring offense in the league, and when they score 110+ and are shooting on all cylinders usually they win the game. When the Knicks lose, it's because they settle for too many parameter/3pt shots and struggle. Yes the Knicks defense isn't great, but other than like 3, 4 teams in the league, whose defense is great now and days. Melo gives us a major element the Knicks are missing... Inside scoring and a better interior game. This is why i would hope to keep Galo because you don't want to get rid of the 3 pt element completely either, which by getting rid of Felton and Galo, u are doing.

    Be smart.
    D'Antonio does not have say if Gallo goes or not.

    Lets not be stupid...Walsh wants Carmelo.

    He has under 9 days to pull it off.

    Why does he need to pull the trigger today.


    Realize we have 2 games only in 8 days.

    There is a good chance that tomorrows game will be the last as the Knicks team we now know.....

    HAVE FAITH IN WALSH.

    Inside scoring like Amare? Do we post up Amare right and Melo left? It's complimentary skills we need, as you say, need inside and outside shooting, but more than that, we need defense.
