The talk about Thomas makes me sick to my stomach, but I have a completely separate issue with the article. At the end it says "The Knicks are giving up far too much for Anthony, and that doesn’t end with the players in the proposed package. Dolan sold this franchise’s soul a long time ago, and now that old, failed partnership is promising a second act that comes straight out of hell." The entire quote seems to be more for effect than anything, but the part in bold...I keep hearing it and I don't know what it means. I can understand if we were giving up players that we would be keeping long term...but that's not the case. Felton, Gallo, Chandler, Curry, 1st round pick for Randolph? Which one of those players do people see on the roster when the 2012 season starts in Oct. 2012? Where is the "too much?"
Everytime I see someone say that we're giving up way to much, but then fail to explain how we would keep Felton and Gallo in 2012...I can't help but think that they're being reactionary and trying to just start something (be it in the media or on the forums.)
I keep asking...how are we supposed to get someone in 2012 to complete our core-3, and keep Felton and Gallo? If they have to leave eventually...does it matter whether it's the winter of 2011 or 2012? It's entirely possible that I'm missing something....but I don't think I am.
