    You can't win a championship with a volume shooter who doesn't play defense.

    Wow way to be living in the moment Knicks fans who care? Both teams got better for the immediate time being did you forget the run the nuggets had in the playoffs last year? We lost first rounders for the umpteenth time while nuggets stockpiling them nuggets ftw in the long run and we are good with the team we have now win win

    Like others say I think the Knicks won the trade because billups getting amnestied became chandler, Lin, and baron davis, jr smith. I don't know what else that trickles down to but I'm assuming it would also mean the Knicks wouldn't have much cap space this summer to sign Danny, Wallace, Kidd AND resign felton! Had they need to give extensions to wilson chandler and gallo.

    When the trade was happening everyone assumed that gallo and Wilson chandler would take the next level and play like all stars. Well this hasn't happened and it looks like gallo wasn't the player many thought he could be and will chandler isn't even used now, Anthony Randolph sucks, eddy curry sucks, mostly sucks and they didn't even lose Felton cause they resigned him.


    Minus melo on the Knicks they'd be a lottery team but minus gallo and the nuggets probably can still stay competitive so Knicks win by far!

    As for the whole Lin is an average defender, here are some stats from last nights game.


    Lillard vs Lin: 3-9, 0 assists
    Lillard vs Douglas: 6-9, 5 assists

    Some statistics
    Points Per Possession Allowed
    Jeremy Lin – 0.71 (50th in the NBA of ALL positions, 5th for PG)
    Toney Douglas – 0.87 (151st in the NBA of ALL positions)

    NBA is about winning right? Knicks fans blow everything out of proportion over the 6-0 start so why wouldn't the answer be Nuggets since they have a better record since the trade?

    You also can't win with an assembly of secondary players of you don't have a #1 option.

    Iggy is a number one option, actually. And he's a damned good one.

    Iggy plays better defense, rebounds better, and shoots at a higher efficiency. All while shooting higher percentage in the clutch. What is Carmelo better at, exactly?

    Umm Carmelo is 10x the scorer Iggy is. Get off it lol. Iggy is barely a better rebounder if he is at all. And volume needs to be accounted for, don't discount a volume scorer due to lesser efficiency. A guy like Monta Ellis's or Melo's ability to carry an offense can't be quantified fairly through shooting efficiency.

    Iggy is an all-around better player and when it comes down to the clutch Carmelo is still worse.

    Monta Ellis is shooting 39 percent. Jesus christ. And he is the fifth worst defender in the league. Horrible example.

    So much of this is so ****ing wrong and stupid I'm surprised you didn't reread it and pull it down from embarrassment.
