    Denver much better, in a tougher conference, with more flexibility financially. They still won the trade as of now.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I don't think WIN-LOSS record is by any means an indication of who won the trade.

    1) DEN was already a MUCH better team than NY when the trade was made, so its only logical that they would have a better record right after the trade. NY needed a season to replenish their roster and they did so.

    2) Young guys don't stay cheap forever, DEN is capped out now after giving Chandler, Gallo & Lawson extensions. The trio of Gallo, Chandler & Mozzy combine to make $19m now, Melo's salary. I guarantee you DEN would trade that $19m trio for Melo in a heartbeat.

    It was still a good trade for both teams then and now. Although TBH, Gallo & Mozzy haven't really developed much if at all like I thought they would. Gallo's shooting 37% since arriving in DEN. And CHandler has completely fallen off the face of the earth.

    Keep in mind DEN got Andre Miller indirectly via that trade, and NY was able to get Tyson indirectly and Lin although he left.

    Gallo has peaked, he'll get you 15 points and 5 boards a game at best and that's it.


    Mozgov isn't even played anymore. Chandler plays >15 mpg and was DNP'd by the coach last game.


    It's interesting no one who says the Nuggets won actually mentions the individual players involved.

    Essentially directly/indirectly Denver got 2 under-achieving forwards in Gallo and Wilson Chandler, and a solid back-up PG in Miller (don't even mention Mozy or the other scrubs) for a superstar in Melo and a DPOY in Tyson. Yeah, easy to give this to the Knicks.

    Yeah the Nuggs gained flexabilty to make some of their subsequent moves, but as someone earlier mentioned, young players don't stay cheap for long.

    They really don't. One team is 15-17 vs teams above .500 and the other is 25-13 against winning teams. This rough stretch isn't an excuse either because you know what, western conference teams have to deal with these brutal stretches way more than eastern teams.

    Nuggets. One hot start for New York doesn't change that.

    Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.

    The Knicks.

    And that is coming from someone that is a huge Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler fan...and the Nuggets are my second favorite team.

    In my opinion, the team trading a type A player (and, Yes, I think Carmelo is a type A) never makes out as good as the team trading four type C's.

    The cream rises to the top.

    No but they're in the West and give teams a harder fight then the Knicks. I just don't believe just because they're on a hot start that they'll beat Boston or Miami in a series.

    So NY has to win, but DEN gets a pass because they play in the West?

    Again its not really about W/L record, DEN was better after the trade for a short while, but it was also largely in part because Billups being traded opened the door for Lawson who made them a better team.

    Fact is every player DEN got from NY has been injury prone and have not performed up to expectations. So I don't see how anyone can say DEN won.

    NY went from a .500 team to a top 4 team in the EAST now, DEN went from a perennial 50+ win team to an above average team.
