New York Knicks
Even Trade Both Teams
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
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?
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.
