    Durant loves winning

    Melo loves money

    Huge difference

    A simple google search suggests completely otherwise, Durant has made stacks more than Melo and it isnt even close.

    What are you guys talking about? I'm not sure about the endorsements and Durant made a garbage movie or two but Carmelo has made a lot more than Durant on contract money. It's about $200 million to $130something million.


    Also, I doubt you'll be able to google the under the table money Lacomb is giving him.

    Melo's earning potential is over, though. I mean, his endorsement branding is weak and he's on the downside of his career. Not to mention the explosive salary boom currently and it makes up for the five years Melo had on Durant in terms of salary. There's no better time than being an NBA player than today. Make three 3's per game and you're guaranteed to get at least $10 million per year.

    Going forward Durant will crush him. But as of yet? Nope.

Then we probably laughed and deal broke off. That's the way I see it from our end.
    U could be right. Once the Knicks were told to take back junk I guess they were no longer interested. It appears they want to move Melo and not take any long junk contract back so it appears Melo will remain a Knick.

    I just wish this trade and the Wade buyout would go ahead and happen before the season (doubtful). Let's get these teams set so someone can try and knock off the Warriors!

    Also I'm sure Knicks want something extra for Melo heading out like a pick or two and some young pieces. But I'm sure Capela is off the table. Bucks not dumping Parker. So get that thought out of your minds. That's was fake news or made up from Knicks end. Wishful thinking on their part.

    If Wade+Melo join the Cavs, yes, I would pay $100 to watch the series. But it'll never happen since NBA has a contract with Disney to host the Finals on TV. If just Wade? Lol, Cavs still get slaughtered like pigs.

    My stance hasn't changed.

    Melo will be a rocket.

    That Nets pick will be moved for an all star and they'll get Wade via buyout. That could be enough. Last finals very wel could've went 6.

    You're fake news, no one is talking about the Bucks.
