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.
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.
i wouldn't be so quick to trade curry... i think he is 'rounding' into shape....
How about this trade proposal?
1st Rd Pick
2nd Rd Pick
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.
The nuggets are getting way too greedy.They wanted Gallo,Felton,Curry,and Another Starter+1st round pick for melo and billups.I'm glad walsh declined this offer.
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.
