    The Knicks have underachieved and dissapointed since the trade...but it gets overlooked that before that season the Knicks struggled to win 30 games every yr...while the Nuggets were winning 50 games..that's how I've always judged it...that and the Nuggets will always be stuck looking for another go-to player but not bad enough (not bad at all) to draft one

    They both won. Knicks got a franchise player, Nuggets got a great support cast and draft picks to rebuild

    If somebody asked you today, would you trade Carmelo, Felton + filler for Wilson Chandler, Gallo, Mozgov, Billups and a couple late 1st round picks?

    It literally isn't. It is no basis to build an argument of.

    You still have yet to bring up any valid point to say he isn't. Attacking someone else's argument instead of building your own is proof you have none.

    Saying someone is "one of the better of anything in the league", does not imply "above average"... now you're just trying to backtrack.

    If I say "Melo is one of the better scorers in the NBA", I'm not saying "he's above average", I'm saying he's in the elite group of scorers.

    Well Knicks didn't do anything worthwhile to finish the 10-11 season, and NY could have just waited to sign him in the 2011 offseason while keeping just about everything they gave up. So Denver won in my eyes, but it doesn't really matter since NY got what the only thing they wanted anyways.

    No I am not. Assuming every team carries 2 point guards that's 64. Lin is at worst outer top 15 defensively. Being better than over 75% of the leagues point guards is definitely ONE OF THE BETTER. I never said best or elite, I said he is one of the better defensive point guards in the league.

    I am not backtracking don't blame me because you can't read and quoted me wrong.

    You haven't brought up any valid points proving he is a good defender. Negative proof fallacy. It has to be proven that Lin is a good defender, not that he is not.

    This. Melo has to get out the 1st round to prove me wrong.

    But anyway it goes Nuggets won the trade.

    I'd make it then. I'd make it now. He's a superstar

    I am still waiting for someone saying Nuggets one to actually mention the key players involved.
