Knicks. No homer. Depth is easier to replace than a star.
My statement only implied that melo is a talent worth over paying for.
You cant judge a trade solely on how a player plays post trade. You must also consider how they may have played or developed had the stayed on their original team. Unfortunately, we will never know how Chandler, Gallo and Mosgov would have developed had they stayed in NY.
We can however look at Felton's decline after he left NY and his current resurgence after his return to NY and you can see that where you play also makes a difference.
That said, you can now return to your circle-jerking...:speechless:
So why should we care about your theory?Quote:

And what proof do you have that people hate opposing players? I know you may not fit the description but some of us are fans of the NBA BEFORE our club
Now that the Knicks got back felton, they have made out great with that trade....
Skewed by a hot start by NY, and a slow start by DEN (especially Gallo/injured Will).
Until either team goes several seasons getting deep into the playoffs in a row, or gets a ring....will probably be a wash.
We already know how these players are, and they will return to form at some point in the season. Denny Green would be screaming "they are who we thought they were"
People who voted for the Knicks are what I like to call, literally ********.
Since knicks have started 6-1 this season, it automatically wins the trade for them?? dont think so
Look how mediocre they have been with Melo.
I'll dig up this thread after both teams have played at least 20 games this season:laugh2:
Same thing I said the day the deal happened.
"Knicks over paid, but in basketball you always want the best player in the deal."
