What would be better for the NBA. CP3 with the Knicks or the Magic?

Obviously if CP3 comes into the Eastern Conference he wants to go to the Knicks or Magic.

Now if that is the case, where would you rather him go?

Personally I'm torn on this. I think him in Orlando would create an instate rivalry like LAL vs SAC in 2002 and it difficult for Miami to constantly win in the East.

Also it would create another duo that has 2 top 7 players in the league together.


But then again I would like him in NY as I would love to see a Knicks vs Bulls playoff series again.



The Knicks top the list of teams Hornets point guard Chris Paul would like to be traded to, according to sources.
The Magic are second on the list, ahead of the Mavericks and Trail Blazers.


So for the league as a whole, would it be better for CP3 to be in NY or would it be better for him to be in Orlando for Miami to have a rival?

NOTE: I also think if he goes to either team, it would be 80's Eastern Conference all over again.

New York doesn't deserve anything. Period.

Orlando, they are contenders already. Even if the Knicks were to aquire Paul they would not be a threat to win the East.

NY would be better for the league.. if he goes to ORL then the east would had have 3 teams with a big 3 and CHI you can consider a big 3 with Rose, Booz, and Noah.. (not as good as the others but still a big 3 kinda)... the bottom half of the east would just be under .500 mayb with the exception of the Hawks and Bucks.. the unbalance is bad for the nba in marketing point of view as well as competitive side of the game.. If you look at the west 1-8 won atleast 50 games.. and the 9 and 10 seed won 40+ which is prob a 4th or 5th seed in the east.. CP in the knick makes more sense, it jus adds another team other teams have to worry about and ORL dont really need CP they jus want him..

blastmasta26

Well it depends on what is better. Knicks would make the East more balanced after Miami but Magic would be a legit opponent to Miami amd provide some real competition.

i really want to see a CP3/D12 duo. what would be EPIC. not to mention the in-state rivalry between the Magic and the Heat. We'll get to watch CP3/D12 vs Lebron/Wade/Bosh 4x a year! not counting them potentially meeting in the ECF.

it'll be fun watching CP3/D12 and Wade/Lebron/Bosh trying to outdo each other.

If Cp3 went to the Magic, it would give Florida a starting 5 of:

Paul
Wade
Lebron
Bosh
Howard

too much talent in one state.
If he went to the Knicks however, he would see perennial Knick- Heat playoff matches that we haven't see since the 90s and early 00s.
Too bad they'all be friends and the competition won't be as fierce.

If the league wants to get out of its financial hole, it needs NY to go back to being the most profitable franchise. So it's better for the NBA that NY gets him instead of him going to another small market team.

The Magic have the best pieces...if they trade Paul for Nelson and Vince Carter together, they already have the better end of the deal.

With Pauls penetration creating open shots for Redick and easy dunks for Howard, they will be one heckuva offensive team.

I'd like to nominate this post as the most ignorant post I've ever seen on a message board. No one cares about smaller market teams? The league that just lost $370 Million does. The owners of those franchises do. The fans of those teams do. So, unless "no one" translates to "the person posting this" in some language with which I am unfamiliar, the post couldn't be more inaccurate.

Undoubtedly, what's best for the NBA as a franchise and a business is if he goes to NY. He'll become a much huger star, the NBA's biggest market will finally have a great team again, and that would create more $$$$ for the league.

But obviously, I'm hoping he goes to Orlando, and I don't care about what's best for the league as a whole ;)

You're pretty funny. It's all very hypothetical considering no one really knows what Melo is doing, but the Knicks would immediately trump the Magic if they ended up assembling that big 3.....No offense to the Magic, but your best player (Dwight) has ZERO Offense which is kinda sad considering he's such an athletic beast. And i don't even want to get started on rashard who is by far the most OVERPAID player in the history of the NBA (and currently one of the most overrated.) If knicks got melo and CP, it would be a 3 team race from that point--LA, MIA and NYK

If he doesn't stay, I hope he goes to NY and the Hornets get a very good package of players, picks and money for him. NO dumping Okafor and getting Randolph, Chandler, Felton and more is better than losing Paul for nothing.

Paul to NY with Gallinari and Amare would be fun to watch. NY needs a better team.

The Knicks haven't been worth a damn in 40 years. One has no direct correlation to the other. The claimed $370 Million loss is more than many NBA franchises, including the Miami Heat, are worth according to Forbes December 2009 evaluations. One franchise doesn't account for nearly 10% of total league revenues of an estimated $4.0 Billion. In other words, the Knicks could sell out every game and every media market and it still wouldn't account for the missing $370 Million that is just a break even number according the the leagues office.

Paul, Roy, Aldridge, Camby, Oden, etc! Thats scary. Also if the mavs find a way to land him he would be great there too.

From a business standpoint, its better for him to be with the Knicks. Its a bigger market & possesses a bigger fanbase than the Magic. There's more endorsements & publicity going around in NYC & will definitely generate more interest than if he were with the Magic.

From a basketball standpoint, its better for him to be with the Magic. D12 perfectly complements CP3 & will form perhaps the best one-two punch in the NBA. Orlando also has a bunch of shooters that can completely open up the lane for CP3, & will not find a shortage of options to pass to. The Magic also has possessed one of the top 2 defenses in the league for he past 2 years, which gives him more confidence to be more aggresive in defense & capitalize on his talent of forcing turnovers.

Being from the NYC area, you dont have to persuade me on that. Although I hear Portland is an awesome city.

BUT from a team standpoint, from a talent standpoint, I like the Blazers roster A LOT more than the Knicks current roster. With Paul, the Blazers compete for a title. With Paul, the Knicks compete for a high playoff seed. In other words:

Paul/Roy/Aldridge/rest of portland roster > Paul/Amare/Gallo/rest of knicks roster

It's all very hypothetical considering no one really knows what Melo is doing, but the Knicks would immediately trump the Magic if they ended up assembling that big 3.....No offense to the Magic, but your best player (Dwight) has ZERO Offense which is kinda sad considering he's such an athletic beast. And i don't even want to get started on rashard who is by far the most OVERPAID player in the history of the NBA (and currently one of the most overrated.) If knicks got melo and CP, it would be a 3 team race from that point--LA, MIA and NYK

The Knicks suck and in order to land CP3, they'll need to trade everything they have and be left with CP3, Stat and a bunch of scrubs. Stat is garbage and easily the most overrated star in the league, it would be Phoenix reborn. And who's to say Melo goes to NY for less than the max?

Magic with CP3 >>>>> Knicks with CP3

it would be way better for him to be on the magic. cp and howard...... are you kidding and melo isnt leaving so it would be a waste for him to go to the knicks.

He would do more for the league in New York than Orlando.

He has the best chances of success if he goes to Orlando.

Why does CP get a Say in where he wants to go??
This disloyal ingrate asks to be traded publicly, that's not how you handle your business. Especially to team and city who has given everything to you.
New york and Orlando have nothing to offer the hornets. I'm sure NO already have much better offers on the table. Go F$ck yourself Chris Paul

You want a trade welcome to minnesota

haha i would do the same but that kinda backfires on the hornet because who will they get in return ? But I most definitely would not trade him to where he wants to play.

Don't know why people say that

no team is going to trade for a disgruntled player, that's why he's being traded in the 1st place.

They'll either send him somewhere he wants to go or keep him

I like both teams but it would be great to see him play at The Garden and for the Knicks to be relevant again.

mark my words, the knicks will be relevant this year with or w/o CP3. The moves they made this offseason were great. They will be neck and neck with the Hawks and Bulls four the 4-5-6 team in the East.

Either of these teams will make a better team.. If the Knicks get CP3, Its impossible for the Knicks to get Anthony next season because of Okafor's contract unless they trade him in the offseson for a 2nd rd pick.. If the Magic gets CP3, Florida will be the luckiest state in the NBA..

I say he should go to the Magic because that will set up another blockade for the Heat. The Magic are already a good team and competed in the Finals before. With Chris and Dwight plus some 3 point shooting from any other players on that team that should knock the Heat out of the playoffs since the Heat don't have a PG and a C.

I am knick fan but I honestly do believe its better for the NBA if Paul went to the Knicks... That way the east will be more balanced.

The Magic are already contenders. With Paul They will become the 1st or 2nd best team in the east.
The Heat are Contenders.
The Bulls will probably be contenders.
The Celtics will be contenders again, they have their 4 stars who will make noise again.
Without Paul the Knicks will make the 7th or 8th seed in the playoffs but will not contend, but with Paul they can def contend.

Best for the League because they are losing $$ Then it's got to be the Knicks. Then all the large market teams would be relavent at the same time. You would have NY,LA,CHI,BOS,DAL,DET who am I missing? All these teams in the playoffs or on the verge of. Would be a great mix to go with the MIA,ORL,OKL,ATL,UTAH,SA,PORT. I'm sure I'm missing some but you get the point.
I would love for him to stay where he is but reality is it doesn't look like he will.

:facepalm: No one cares about the smaller market teams. Why would Chris Paul want to waste the prime of his career playing in the smallest market in the NBA with no chance of winning. And believe me once the Knicks become good again the NBA will too.

Fans around the league are not sitting around for the past decade thinking man, if only the knicks didnt suck basketball would be awesome.

If he can convince his bankrupt owner to spend on his team then sure.

It's clear that no one here keeps up with the Hornets, since they keep repeating the things ESPN says about them.

With the Knicks a Bulls vs Knicks series would be epic.

And the Knick/Miami rivalry series would be back as well. But the potential of a huge in-state Florida rivalry with possibly 4 of the top six most popular players in that series with Dwight, CP3, Wade, and King James would be epic. A huge in-state rivalry would be great.
