Lets say the "purposed" deal between the 4 teams goes down, and the NYETS get Melooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooo, are they a playoff team, or useless fodder like the Knicks?

Possible Roster:

C:Lopez, petro
PF: Murphy, piece-o-crap
SF:Melo, piece-o-crap
SG: Morrow? Williams
PG:Farmar?piece-o-crap

so we are looking at a terrible roster in 2010 outside of Meloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo and Lopez.

so do u think the Nyets are a playoff team with a roster like this if the deal goes down they way it is rumored to be?

you have no legitimate starting nba pg, a sg who mainly shoots 3pt shots, a superstar at sf, a dbl dbl pf, and a young center who looks like the next great big man

can they compete for a playoff spot?

seeing as melooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo made the playoffs with the likes of andre miller, camby, k-mart, anthony carter and such back in the day, it does seem possible

maybe they can make the 8th seed? maybe

but can they beat the bobcats with devin harris, jackson, and wallace. can they beat the knicks with 20 pt 5 rebound Amar'e Stoudemire, and The next Kevin Garnett:Anthony Randolph. can they beat the pacers with collison, granger? wait...*COUGH *COUGH*, did i just say pacers, well, maybe if they get a pf

so as far as it seems to me, with a roster like the NYETS could possibly have in 2010, they are looking at 8th seed at best imo, with steep competion from the rest of the East's fodder

thoughts??

BTW: thank God my bulls arent going after Meloooooooooooooooooooooooooo, would hate to lose Noah for him, lol. im predicting that chauncey plays out this year with the nuggets unless the blazers make a push for him( pryzbilla, and 2nd round picks). kenyon martin to the bucks in exchange for michael redd, or he may have his contract bought out to play for a contending team.

J.R smith will be gone as well probably, if hes not included in the "Meloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Deal"

on a sad note: Been a Nuggets fan since 2004, when Kmart Arrived from NJ, it was a nice ride in Den, years of struggling, then finally making it to the conference finals, only to have ur best defender, and coach get injured, and have melo "Demand a trade" ( notice the air quotes). the faster this NYETS deal gets done, the faster kmart leaves the nuggets nd i go with him, farewell Nuggets fans, good luck, and for one last time, even though hes leaving, lets say it:

When I said the other 7 teams, I meant those who passed the playoffs. And the other 7 that would face the Nets, if they passed.

These teams mentioned (Atlanta, Orlando, Boston, Miami, Chicago, Charlotte, New York etc ...), which were simply occurred to me that they could go to the playoffs, did not mean that those 8 were those who would be, perhaps you did not see etc? Means that there are more teams that can enter, as the Pacers or the Bucks.

So that closes the Nets' chances of entering the playoffs, or pass the first round, now have more to worry about another team, Bucks! LMAO!

So what if you're a former Nets fan. You're not anymore. There definitely seems to be some anger in your post. If the Melo deal goes down, the Nets will make the playoffs. The way it looks, they will get a point guard in return or even Aaron Afflalo as stated in recent reports.

All this "piece-o-crap" stuff is unnecessary. I am not saying Travis Outlaw is great, but his name is certainly worth mentioning coming off the bench. I am not going to trying to overrate players like Williams and James to non-Nets fans, but this team is far better than you are giving credit to.

Dam what a immature way to start a thread. You should be banned from starting threads. Your like all over the place! Bulls fan, Nets fan, Nuggets fan, possibly a Knick fan seeing as your portraying them as if they're considered a team to beat... Anyway yes they are a playoff team with Melo. However let's wait for this all to be official before making idiotic threads.

btw- nets have decent team... with melo, they make playoffs IMO... but there are 4 STRONG teams in the east, which SHOULD win the 1st round, consisting of Heat, Magic, Celtics and either Hawks or Bucks (likely 4th n 5th seeds)... so i dont think anyone else gets out of east... best chance for team to get out of first round is to get that 4th or 5th seed. any team sneaks in, they got it... and i dont think nets are deep enough or have the fire power to do so, considering they are trading harris, melo never handled the ball, he had billups and iverson to do that... farmar is not any of those guys, will be interesting to see what happens.

you have NO0oOne on your roster who would be on the knicks starting lineup besides lopez, and thats because of our lack of any proven big men and his "potential"

you get melo, the knicks are STILL a more proven team than you... amare did it with nash... melo did it with billups ONCE...

A team that failed to win a championship within the span of three years? Another run? Far from it, the Nets had no shooters, no true bigs down low, they needed an overhaul. If the Nets get Anthony to pair up with Lopez and quiet possibly CP3 in a year or two, this team can be back in contention. RJ,Kidd,Martin were fun to watch but not enough to win a ring.

I agree completely. However I don't go on Knick forums telling y'all how good we are. I know the Nets won 12w. I know our only sure thing is Lopez. Speaking with no homerism thou I would gladly take Lopez over Amare as of now. I would also take Harris over Felton. Favors is unproven but based on his age I would rather have him on a rookie contract than Amare at 100mil. Potential wise TWill and Randolph are even.

BTW: thank God my bulls arent going after Meloooooooooooooooooooooooooo, would hate to lose Noah for him, lol. im predicting that chauncey plays out this year with the nuggets unless the blazers make a push for him( pryzbilla, and 2nd round picks). kenyon martin to the bucks in exchange for michael redd, or he may have his contract bought out to play for a contending team.

J.R smith will be gone as well probably, if hes not included in the "Meloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Deal"

on a sad note: Been a Nuggets fan since 2004, when Kmart Arrived from NJ, it was a nice ride in Den, years of struggling, then finally making it to the conference finals, only to have ur best defender, and coach get injured, and have melo "Demand a trade" ( notice the air quotes). the faster this NYETS deal gets done, the faster kmart leaves the nuggets nd i go with him, farewell Nuggets fans, good luck, and for one last time, even though hes leaving, lets say it:

Comparing a team that has 4 returning players 1 of whom is an all star PG who was injured last year. And we had a nobody for a coach. You might as well say "Oh the Heat are going to be a first round exit because look at how Wade did in last years playoffs!!"

Their backcourt is atrocious if the trade goes down imo

Obviously Melo > Harris but NJ's best backcourt player is Morrow.

Melo/Murphy/Brook is solid offensively but defensively they will struggle at every position, especially that backcourt which will be their biggest weakness.

I don't see them making the playoffs with the trade to be honest, East got a lot better and other than Boston in their division they have to deal with a revamped NY team, Philly and Turner, Washington with Wall and even Charlotte with Harris added.

I agree completely. However I don't go on Knick forums telling y'all how good we are. I know the Nets won 12w. I know our only sure thing is Lopez. Speaking with no homerism thou I would gladly take Lopez over Amare as of now. I would also take Harris over Felton. Favors is unproven but based on his age I would rather have him on a rookie contract than Amare at 100mil. Potential wise TWill and Randolph are even.

how could this not be homerism man? if you had amare over lopez, melo would have already signed the extension to come play for you guys....

so your LYING when you say you wouldnt take amare over lopez. you would do it in a heartbeat

It all depends on whether or not they trade for Carmelo. If they trade for him, I could see them making the playoffs this year. If the proposed deal goes through they could have a roster that includes: Melo, Brook Lopez, Troy Murphy, Travis Outlaw, Anthony Morrow, Terrance Williams, etc. That's good enough to get the 8th seed in my opinion. If they don't get the deal done, it will be a few years before they sniff the playoffs.

I'm removing Melo from the equation. Based on the players themselves I would take Lopez 10 times outta 10. Obviously factoring in Melo I would rather have Amare cuz then Melo and possibly CP3 will follow. However based on just the players I prefer Lopez.

The entire team, especially Brooke Lopez would have to have career years defensively just to get the Nets into the top 10 in defensive ratings.

If there were just 1 or 2 rotation players who needed work, I could see Avery making up the difference... but not when there are literally 6-7 below average defenders (based on previous career) in the 9 man rotation.

Well, obviously if i'm starting a franchise from scratch a la the nets, you do that, you know you cant win in the next 3-4 years, after that amare will be old... but when look at who is the better player, its amare...but you will NEVER admit that EVER...

amare is 28, has 4 years of good ball left in him, after that, hes a role player like garnett is now

but, brook needs 4 years til he gets to prime level ball... DWIGHT IS NOT EVEN THERE YET... his offense lacks BIG time... he will develop that offense tho... and by the time brook does become the amare type player, or to that level... rookie contract will be gone and he will get his pay day also... its inevitable, unless he flops, and then well, what can we say?

Obviously... He wants to form another big three. Lopez no matter how dominant he becomes... Even if he ever reached the level of his idol Tim Duncan, he could never be considered a superstar. He's not marketable. He's from lack of a better word, boring. Melo is not a smart man. He's got his priorities all messed up. He wants to form a big three in NY and be an icon! Coming to NJ and playing with a great no name center is not as attractive. Doesn't mean Amare is better. Just a bigger name.

Coming to NJ and playing with a great no name center is not as attractive. Doesn't mean Amare is better. Just a bigger name.

Here's another take at it

If Melo really would like to form a big 3, hence the reason why'd he leave Denver who is still a good team, he can't do it in NJ.

If the proposed trade goes down they'd have Melo locked up and paired with Brook and Williams. However NJ loses a lot of assets because of it and getting a star back court player isn't easy. They'd lack any assets/PG to give back if they ever wanted to make a move at a Chris Paul, Deron Williams, etc

Not to mention Morrow/Melo/Murphy/Brook is great offensively but the coach is a defensive guy in Avery and their backcourt would likely be the worst in the NBA.

This is if you believe Melo wants to leave to form a big 3 and championship. I honestly can't see him doing this in NJ, they don't even have a good PG after the trade. Defensively that team is a wreck and your asking a lot from Brook to be your defensive anchor when Farmar/Murphy/Melo are all on the floor at the same time.

Nah I just felt like doing that after reading the all the other garbage about Brook Lopez and w/e. Whatever team he is a fan of he should just go in those forums. I clicked on the link just to see if there would be something interesting to read. I actually do think the Nets can make some serious improvements but there was no point in mentioning the Knicks in anyone's post. Who cares if anyone thinks Brook Lopez is better than Amare; Knicks made the moves they needed to make and the Nets have a team that is no longer associated with last year's mark. Nets fans need to worry about climbing out of the cellar of the Eastern conference than if they are better than the Knicks. Alot of teams in the NBA are better than both of these teams who are not quite there yet in terms of being championship caliber. Just root for your own team without being negative about the other.

No I'm not kidding. This isn't the NFL where your quarterback should sit down and learn a playbook. There are players that are raw and should sit or maybe ride the bench till they earn their way in but when you are a lottery pick and don't contribute right away I think that's part of where the NBA got watered down. Those guys should be ready to play right away. Second rounders should be the ones learning. The only position I would say that should sit is the point guard. I think thats a harder transition because of the speed and strength of the players on offense and defense. If a big man is not playing right away usually is not a good sign. Look at Anthony Randolph ppl been saying potential for years now. He still is skinny, still has that tweeny game of having better handle than most 4's but can't shoot well enough or is not fast enough to play the 3. Then ppl want him to play center somehow. I am glad to have gotten him since we could have lost Lee for nothing but back to the point. Big men when they are drafted on potential usually is not a good sign.

Regardless of their record last season, adding a top 10 player like Melo will certainly get the Nets into the playoffs. What is tough to say at this point, is what other player(s) will the Nets receive in this trade. But regardless you're looking at a decent starting lineup that is playoff caliber. They may not get past the first round but they will get in. It's not me being a homer that is saying this, it's, me being a logical NBA fan.

All they have is Amare and hopeful potential. Randolph? Hopeful... Gallo... Overrated, unathletic, uncoordinated, clumsy... Felton? Eh kinda nice... Mozgov? Never heard of him and neither did most Knick fans before he got signed... Chandler?sucks... Mason? Nice shooter... Amare?... His knees will catch up to him soon... D'Antoni ball? Not a winning style...

Randolph has a ton of potential according to practically every NBA analyst out there (most recently #1 in the top 10 players to break out in 2010 article). Gallo played one season 15 PPG, 5 RPG, athletic (ranked 11 best SF by yahoo! sports) . Felton is a pretty solid PG who has never played with a big man like Amare, is a very good defender. Chandler is young averaged 15 PPG, 5 RPG, over the last 2 seasons. Mozgov, #2 ranked oversees FA by draft express. Roger Mason, pretty good shooter. Billy Walker relegated to the bench whilst on the Celtics , showed that he can still play when he was traded to the Knicks averaging 12 PPG on 52% shooting. Toney Douglas, 8.5 PPG, 1 SPG, 46% FG, 19 MPG, better than Terrence Williams. Kelenna Azubuike, 26 years old, 2008-09 season averages: 14.4 PPG, 5 RPG (second amongst guards), 46% FG, 45% 3PFG. Landry Fields, played very well in the summer league,. has a lot of potential.

Amare's knees are 100% fine and haven't bothered him in the slightest for FIVE seasons.

D'antoni, 04-05: 62 wins lost conference finals, 05-06: 54 wins lost conference finals, 06-07: 61 wins lost conference finals, 07-08: 55 wins lost first round. Clearly a winning style.

Lets say the "purposed" deal between the 4 teams goes down, and the NYETS get Melooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooo, are they a playoff team, or useless fodder like the Knicks?

Possible Roster:

C:Lopez, petro
PF: Murphy, piece-o-crap
SF:Melo, piece-o-crap
SG: Morrow? Williams
PG:Farmar?piece-o-crap

so we are looking at a terrible roster in 2010 outside of Meloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo and Lopez.

so do u think the Nyets are a playoff team with a roster like this if the deal goes down they way it is rumored to be?

you have no legitimate starting nba pg, a sg who mainly shoots 3pt shots, a superstar at sf, a dbl dbl pf, and a young center who looks like the next great big man

can they compete for a playoff spot?

seeing as melooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo made the playoffs with the likes of andre miller, camby, k-mart, anthony carter and such back in the day, it does seem possible

maybe they can make the 8th seed? maybe

but can they beat the bobcats with devin harris, jackson, and wallace. can they beat the knicks with 20 pt 5 rebound Amar'e Stoudemire, and The next Kevin Garnett:Anthony Randolph. can they beat the pacers with collison, granger? wait...*COUGH *COUGH*, did i just say pacers, well, maybe if they get a pf

so as far as it seems to me, with a roster like the NYETS could possibly have in 2010, they are looking at 8th seed at best imo, with steep competion from the rest of the East's fodder

thoughts??

BTW: thank God my bulls arent going after Meloooooooooooooooooooooooooo, would hate to lose Noah for him, lol. im predicting that chauncey plays out this year with the nuggets unless the blazers make a push for him( pryzbilla, and 2nd round picks). kenyon martin to the bucks in exchange for michael redd, or he may have his contract bought out to play for a contending team.

MELOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

wow..another very smart hate thread..lol

I think I have made my opinions on Melo abundantly clear. Great player, nowhere near elite. He would not make the Nets playoff contenders if they give up Harris/Favors for him. But he will give them enough wins to mess up their draft position and hurt their growth.

Lets say the "purposed" deal between the 4 teams goes down, and the NYETS get Melooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooo, are they a playoff team, or useless fodder like the Knicks?

Possible Roster:

C:Lopez, petro
PF: Murphy, piece-o-crap
SF:Melo, piece-o-crap
SG: Morrow? Williams
PG:Farmar?piece-o-crap

so we are looking at a terrible roster in 2010 outside of Meloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo and Lopez.

so do u think the Nyets are a playoff team with a roster like this if the deal goes down they way it is rumored to be?

you have no legitimate starting nba pg, a sg who mainly shoots 3pt shots, a superstar at sf, a dbl dbl pf, and a young center who looks like the next great big man

can they compete for a playoff spot?

seeing as melooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo made the playoffs with the likes of andre miller, camby, k-mart, anthony carter and such back in the day, it does seem possible

maybe they can make the 8th seed? maybe

but can they beat the bobcats with devin harris, jackson, and wallace. can they beat the knicks with 20 pt 5 rebound Amar'e Stoudemire, and The next Kevin Garnett:Anthony Randolph. can they beat the pacers with collison, granger? wait...*COUGH *COUGH*, did i just say pacers, well, maybe if they get a pf

so as far as it seems to me, with a roster like the NYETS could possibly have in 2010, they are looking at 8th seed at best imo, with steep competion from the rest of the East's fodder

thoughts??

BTW: thank God my bulls arent going after Meloooooooooooooooooooooooooo, would hate to lose Noah for him, lol. im predicting that chauncey plays out this year with the nuggets unless the blazers make a push for him( pryzbilla, and 2nd round picks). kenyon martin to the bucks in exchange for michael redd, or he may have his contract bought out to play for a contending team.

J.R smith will be gone as well probably, if hes not included in the "Meloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Deal"

Im a Terrance Williams fan, and i see him haveing a breakout year. He can play the 1-3 positons and hes highly athletic. He dominated in summer league, which i know is summer league, but its a start. I see him starting.

I see the starting five looking like this

Jordan Farmar
Terrance Williams
Melo
T Murphy
Lopez

And thats if they dont get another PG within the trade because Farmar is very inconsistenct.

But i see the East coming out lilke this

1. Miami Heat
2. Orlando Magic
3. Boston Celtics
4. Chicago Bulls
5. Atlanta Hawks
6. Bucks
7. NY Knicks
8. Nets

So yes i see them fighting it out with the Bobcats at the end and making the spot and getting knocked out first round by the Heat.

Yes the Nets with Melo certainly would be a playoff team.

LOL..all the bulls fans are voting for the last option. Haterde works pretty effectively for them.

First, I assume you meant "Haterade". Second, what the hell does that have to do with hating? Third, why the hell would we even hate on the Nets??

Too bad Heat fans didn't grow brains along with those boners this summer.

In the playoffs as an 8th seed if they dont get Carmelo..Avery Johnson makes this team better..

I agree... I actually see the Wizards getting in before the Knicks. All they have is Amare and hopeful potential. Randolph? Hopeful... Gallo... Overrated, unathletic, uncoordinated, clumsy... Felton? Eh kinda nice... Mozgov? Never heard of him and neither did most Knick fans before he got signed... Chandler?sucks... Mason? Nice shooter... Amare?... His knees will catch up to him soon... D'Antoni ball? Not a winning style...

way to be a hater, im sure you'll get real far in life with that attitude? I'm sure you've watched a lot of knick games to be talking about all their players in a negative mashion. you sound like a espn highlight guy that watches highlights and determines whos good based on that. congrats for that epic faliure. :clap:

Melo has never failed to make the playoffs, and I don't think he's likely to miss them for the first time no matter where he ends up.

But nowhere he could end up (after losing the pieces necessary to trade for him) would be a more winning team than if he stayed with the Nuggets. Which is pretty much all you need to know to understand that, for him, this really is not about winning.

I think the Nets are more moving forward to a: Melo, Brook Lopez, CP3 kind a thing, which could end up as a scary thing, but only by adding Melo to the current roster, I see them just getting a slighlty little better season than the last one ...

So what if you're a former Nets fan. You're not anymore. There definitely seems to be some anger in your post. If the Melo deal goes down, the Nets will make the playoffs. The way it looks, they will get a point guard in return or even Aaron Afflalo as stated in recent reports.

All this "piece-o-crap" stuff is unnecessary. I am not saying Travis Outlaw is great, but his name is certainly worth mentioning coming off the bench. I am not going to trying to overrate players like Williams and James to non-Nets fans, but this team is far better than you are giving credit to.

u know whats funny about this forum:

1: when u make apost about anyone's team ,good or bad, u get flamed and called a "hater"

2. when a team is rumored to get a great player, all their "Fans" come out, lmaoooo

Dam what a immature way to start a thread. You should be banned from starting threads. Your like all over the place! Bulls fan, Nets fan, Nuggets fan, possibly a Knick fan seeing as your portraying them as if they're considered a team to beat... Anyway yes they are a playoff team with Melo. However let's wait for this all to be official before making idiotic threads.

had to make it seem that way because of this forum's posters

these are the guidelines i havebeen given to post on these forums, if i dont follow them, i will be permanently baned:

-Agree that Lebron is better than Kobe

-Orlando Magic are Contenders

-Dwight Howard has a post game

- The Heat are better than the Celtics

-The Heat are the best team in the NBA

-Amar'e Stoudemire is a SUPERSTAR

- The Knicks will get CP3, MELO, and everyone else on their wish list

-Kobe is too old

-Kevin Durant is better than Carmelo

-Deron Williams is better than CP3

-The mavericks are contenders

-Kevin durant is the best player in the game today, ball or not

-Oklahoma Thunder are title contenders after taking the Lakers to 6 games in the first round

-The Jazz are contenders

-the celtics are too old

- Lebron James is not the King of the Illuminati

-Young Money is not another division of the ILLUMINATI
-------------------------------------------------------------

if i dont agree with everything on that list, ill get baned :speechless:

Former? We should already stop listening to you based on the fact that you are a bandwagon fan.



:facepalm:

so ima nets fan, kenyon martin is my fav player, and he goes to the nuggets, so im on the nuggets bandwagon for the past 6 years

nice logic :clap:

Well if you take your time and read it again, he's actually bashing the Nets. The Knicks were barely mentioned...

tecnhically i am not bashing the nets, but if u wanna put it that way, i.d.g.a.s (itl take u a while to figure this one out, ill wait...)

i dont mind melooooooooooooooooooooooo wanting to leave, i could care less at this point, because hes an idiot, we can contend for the next 2-3 years with our current roster, and we can always draft players, and use our MLE to improve. but he wants to leave and go to a younger team so he can win with them.

as far as im concerned, i could care less, all this means is that Kmart will join a different team next year, im hoping he joins a team that can contend for a title now. all i want is for him to win a ring b4 he retires

as far as melo, unless he goes to my bulls for a 1 year rental for deng and gibson, picks, etc, i will no longer support carmelo.

and for the (insert insult here) here that say why would u want a 1yr rentel, its caus

U CANNOT GIVE NOAH AND EXTENSION, PAY BOOZER, PAY MELO, ND PAY ROSE BIG BUCKS!

i wld rather have the cap space, and offer the sixers picks for iguodala or something if we cannot get a better replacment.

as far as melo to the Knicks or nets, i would prefer the Knicks, i live in NY, born and raised, i always considered NJ just another Borough for NY in which we store our crap( stadiums, etc). so i would want melo in NY

he will play with STAT, and they will win 50 games and never win a ring, so gud luck!

im not concerned with melo too much, its about kmart and my bulls, melo can S some D if he leaves. Melooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooo
