    im not talking about your scenario, im talking about people actually thinking that we might get howard

    This can be settled easy

    Carmelo walks into the office sits down in front of prokarov

    Calmly asks the man if he has ever seen Rocky 4

    and quietly walks out of the room.

    negotiations over.

    Dwight said nothing of the sort in regards to the Lakers. More importantly he said, the media was making stuff up, he never said anything about leaving, wants to stay in Orlando. Realistically for us is Jordan/Gasol/trade for Pryz.

    Gotcha...but that's not what I was talking about. You said Melo should force his way here to have more pieces around him....but the pieces you refer to would be leaving eventually anyway (except for Fields) so...Chandler, Gallo, Felton, is more than fair. Because even if we sign Melo as FA, we have to renounce Gallo and let Felton go to sign someone in 2012.

    I'm convinced that Carmelo and the Nets have not been anywhere close to meeting.

    Think about it. We keep hearing about the Nets being in play for this, the Nets being in play for that.

    And the two times Carmelo has been asked about this, his responses:

    <iframe title="YouTube video player" width="640" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/TDw48rY_nW8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Reporter: So it's basically official that you're going to be traded to the Nets tomorrow?

    Melo: "The who?"

    Reporter: "The Nets, tomorrow"

    Melo: "I haven't heard that one. I don't know, dawg...that's new."

    Second time:

    LOS ANGELES — Carmelo Anthony said Friday "no meeting at all" is scheduled with the New Jersey Nets and didn't know what he would say if one does happen.
    Speaking at an NBA Cares community service event, Anthony said a reported meeting that Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov was seeking with the All-Star forward was "news to me."
    "I haven't heard it," Anthony said.
    That's not the second time that's happened. Sources reported a meeting when the Nets-Pistons-Nuggets three-team deal was abuzz that Carmelo had granted Prokhorov permission to talk to him. Of course, the meeting never happened, and Carmelo basically refused it.

    Call me an idiot or overly optimistic if you want but I'm convinced that Carmelo Anthony has never come close to anything even remotely resembling an extension with the New Jersey Nets.

    I believe that the Nuggets are making the Nets trade talks seem far more over-blown than they are in order to pressure the Knicks into throwing Landry Fields into the deal.

    There is no other reason for news sources to report that Carmelo and Prokhorov have agreed to the meeting and for Carmelo to subsequently deny it and claim that there's no meeting.

    I'm going to put all my chips in one basket and say: Carmelo isn't going to the Nets. Carmelo, at no point, has ever seriously considered going to the Nets. Carmelo, right now, wants to play playoff basketball in Madison Square Garden, not 30-win basketball with Brook "I grab 6 rebounds per game even though I'm 7'1" Lopez and coach Avery "what happened to my PG, my PF, and my SG?" Johnson. Carmelo, right now, cannot stand the idea of watching the Knicks play basketball in the playoffs while he himself sits in an apartment in Newark (lol) wondering when the Nets are ever going to become good enough to make a push at the 8th seed.

    I still think it's going to drag until the trade deadline.

    I honestly think if the Knicks don't end up forcing a trade he's just going to sign the extension with Denver. He's got a better chance of winning in Denver than he does of winning in New Jersey, that's for sure.

    It can drag itself out all it wants.. Our leverage is now 0 if the Nets and Melo really do have a deal in place akready.. Denver can demand everything from us and threaten to pull the trigger on the Nets trade if we don't comply.. But if Gallo's the one holding this trade up then wow just wow

    Unless Melo says no to an extension...

    Which is what this all hinges on.

    The answer to what Melo will do exists, unfortunately it exists exclusively in Melo's head.

    True. I dunno how reliable this "source" who tipped ESPN on Melo's intentions is.. but I hope they're wrong. Because if they aren't then we will have to suffer the sight of seeing Melo play across the river and eventually in a different borough than us..

    I think we need to stand firm here and not take the bait. If he truly wants to be a Knick he'll be a Knick this offseason. Don't sell the farm to get this guy. He has already stated tha place he wants to be is in New York anyway. If he chooses to sign the extension with Denver...so be it. He will be the one not happy in the long run.
