    Top 3 in steals, good defensive rating, 4th among PG in defensive win shares. That's a whole lot more to go one than " he is not a good defender because I say so."

    But w/e keep your head buried under the sand and think he isn't.

    If you are the Knicks, you would give up Melo and Felton for Gallo & Co.?

    This has been disproved so many times. Even if there was a CBA in place going into that off season, we would have had to denounce the rights to everybody involved in the trade except for maybe Felton in order to sign Melo out right.

    Not burying my head in anything. When he was on the Knicks I said he was at best and average defender.

    "Top 3 in steals"

    Well I guess getting 2.5 SPG means that you stay in front of your man, make your rotations, go over/ under screens properly, play good help d, put a hand up to contest shots, trap well, etc. Oh wait you can average 2.5 SPG and just do something like play the passing lanes well and have good hands, but can still be horrible at everything else.

    Lin has good hands. A tiny facet of the defense.


    "defensive rating"

    I guess in the fantasy world in which Carlos Boozer is as good of a defender as KG, and is a better defender than TD and Tyson Chandler Lin is a great defender.


    As for defensive win shares, I would appreciate a link.

    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.

    Point blank none of them won't win a title, But Denver won the trade. NY got Melo thinking he would shoot them to a ECF/ NBA Finals and Nuggets are still trying to build I don't think they're done dealing players.

    lol, you make no sense. Only a handful of teams have won an NBA title in the past 20 years. Thats not how you judge a trade.

    Ask DEN if they would trade an under performing injury prone Gallo, an injury prone Chandler, a 3rd string center in Mozgov and a late 1st for Melo now and they'd do it in a heartbeat.

    I did not read the entire argument but heres my opinion. I think Lin is a pretty good defender who benefits from gambling but also gets burned too much as a result. If you watched his games with the knicks last year he was a big time defensive liability against better PG's(always had to be bailed out by shumpert). The problem is that the rockets did not give him all that money to just be a defensive player. They brought him thinking he was going to be a great overall PG. 10ppg and 6apg is definitely not going to cut it. Its way too early to think thats what hes going to average for the season but as of right now he looks pretty bad out there other than some nice defensive plays here and there

    why does that matter? They got rid of a star player who couldn't win for them, and got back depth, flexibility, draft picks, and typically when a team sends away a so called "franchise" player, they eat ****. Denver was still a very good team, with more options going forward.

    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.
