u mad?

As a fan I don't like to see my Teams taken advantage of.

Our Crack Head Owner James Dolan (he is, no joke) threw away an entire 2 years trying to rebuild the team with young guys who he could trade for talent.

Essentially, all the work was blown away for Carmelo.

Carmelo while an excellent player is Mark Aguirre for those with a sense of history.

Mar never got much accomplished till he went to the Detroit Bad Boys where he was a 3/4 option most nights. A team with lots of talent which the Knicks now lack.

I will always root for my Knicks but I am very very disappointed with what we gifted to Denver.

Will go down as on of the 5 worst trades in NBA history.

Will go down as on of the 5 worst trades in NBA history.

1. Gallo cant play the 2, or 4. So he was going to come off the bench

2. Chandler is a FA after this season, and we couldnt afford him even if we waited, and signed Melo

3. Felton is replaceable. Matter of fact, Billups is better than him right now. And by the time Billups' contact is up, DWill, and CP3 will be available. Felton was NEVER a long term solution. Actually, he was planned on being traded once he was eligible in December, or at least sources claimed that to be the case back when he was signed

4. Mozgov is really the only player im upset about losing, but again, is replaceable

Essentially, we gave up Mozgov, and draft picks for Carmelo. Sure Gallo would have been a nice bench piece, but would have been completely wasted

Unless I am way off base, the Knicks gave up Gallinari, Chandler and Felton for Melo and Billups.


The Knicks also gave up a few draft picks... but is that really a big deal?

Billups
Fields
Melo
Amare
Mozgov

Bench:
TD
Williams
Turiaf
Randolph (possible trading piece)
Curry(big asset)


How did the Knicks get raped so badly? Chandler was gone anyway. Gallinari for Melo? Felton had a 2 yr deal and while he is way younger than Billups, Cjauncey still plays at a very high level.

The Knicks also positioned themselves nicely for 2012.


-So again, unless I am way off base with the trade itself, I don't see how the Nuggets raped the Knicks.

2) Denver had no power at the table. They were losing Melo at the end of the season if they kept him.

3) NYK could have gotten him in FA for nothing.

Mozgov IS in the deal: So is Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry's expiring (they're going to MInnesota somehow, not sure what the return is). And picks - lots of picks. And the icing on the cake? 3 million in cash. The Knicks man... what a joke.


Thanks man, I was wayyyyyyyy off. Forget my most recent post. The knicks got torn to shreds here. jesus christ.

Knicks lose:

Chandler(they would lose him anyway)
Felton(he only had a 2 year deal, but is much younger and was turning into a nice player)
Gallinari(not even comparable to melo)

Now it turns into some trouble...

Curry(they could have used him for a future deal as he is a huge expiring)

Randolph(tough to lose him too... young player with a ton of potential, could have used him in a trade as well.)

Mozgov(Good, young big man. Definitely would have helped. Knicks lack size, even with Sheldon Williams and a few others coming over)

Draft picks...

3 million...

What ****ing rape? Ok Melo + Billups + Sheldon Williams > Felton + Chandler + Gallo + Mozgov. Oh **** I forgot about the 2014 first rounder and the two second rounder, oh well. Honestly Mozgov has had maybe 3 really good games and a couple more decent ones, a lot of people are overrating him. I'm not going to say Sheldon Williams is definitely better than Mozgov, but he's been putting up better numbers and has started for Denver 32 times this season. Is Melo not worth Chandler (FA this offseason) and Gallo?

I'm glad you're the one Knicks fan that understands how much you gutted the team here. Felton, Gallo and Chandler were 3 starters who fit perfectly in D'Antoni's system. As great as Melo is, he's a ball stopper on offense along with Amare because neither of them are great passers like Lebron and Wade are and Billups wasn't even a great passing PG to begin with and he's just older now who's gonna have to play in a fast-paced offensive system. Good luck though, hopefully it works out for you guys, I want a competitive 1st round series if we do play eachother :D

I wouldn't say highway robbery. Knicks are moving into elite status (not yet but on their way). Nuggets are now in full rebuild mode and won't get back to elite status for quite some time.

Nuggets def got more than they should have, but who ended up with the superstar when all's said and done?

Remember, Billups > Felton and ultimately, the Knicks are were gonna try to replace Felton with Williams or Paul anyway, so that's not a big deal.

Chandler wasn't gonna be resigned so if they wanted him, letm have him.

Gallo is the big piece and I'm pretty shocked they gave up Mozgov too. The picks and money was just desperation.

why didn't new york just wait?

Melo wasn't going to wait to see what the new cba had in store

Yestorday thinking about it yes I thought it was highway robbery. But thinking about it now..

Billups-Dougie-Carter
Fields-Bukie(Healthy),Walker-Dougie
Melo- Sha. Williams-Balkman
Amare-Sha. Williams, Turry
CJ-She. Williams-Barron

If Bukie can come back soon, get Barron and sign Chris Johnson who avgs 17 and 10 a game in the D, we will be in very very good shape.

Very happy.

Hey wait a min, do you any of you people realize in that deal where the knicks send in anthony randolph and curry to the wolves, the wolves also send in brewer and their own first round pick this season to the nuggets? THE WOLVES FIRST ROUND PICK!?

Wow 480 people viewing this thread. Is PSD going to blow up?
It didn't blow up during the decision so it shouldn't blow up now. But I'd be very worried. We're at around 4,000 people online right now, only 1,100 shy of the record.

No way is this trade a highway robbery, The trade seems fair on both sides I give the Knicks the edge because they got the superstar out of the trade..

seriously. People who hate on the knicks for this sound strange to me. You broke up a .500 team and now you have 2 stars on your team. Are you gonna be a contender this season? no. But with some right moves, a new coach, the knicks can be a force again.

2 stars is a good thing to build around

Exactly. The East is still Boston-Miami-Chicago but give us one offseason to fill the roster and build chemistry and then I think it's wide open.


The deal didn't go through. Melo failed the physical. :p

Not funny. :mad:


Congrats to Knicks fans. You guys have been patient. :cheers:

Thanks man. I'll miss Gallo. I rocked a Gallo sig for a long time and I like his game a lot but we kept my other favorite Landry Fields and now we have legit players to build around. The Billups addition is not getting nearly enough attention. Ray Felton is not that good. He's not a shooter and after a hot start he can crashing back down to Earth.

Ok Melo + Billups + Sheldon Williams > Felton + Chandler + Gallo + Mozgov. Oh **** I forgot about the 2014 first rounder and the two second rounder, oh well. Honestly Mozgov has had maybe 3 really good games and a couple more decent ones, a lot of people are overrating him. I'm not going to say Sheldon Williams is definitely better than Mozgov, but he's been putting up better numbers and has started for Denver 32 times this season. Is Melo not worth Chandler (FA this offseason) and Gallo?

I'll always be a Suns fan, but after Amar'e left I have followed the Knicks. They may not be great right away, but when CP3 or DWill join the team it's going to get scary. Guys will follow much like they did with Miami just for the chance to play with these guys and the allure of New York.

It's good for the NBA for the Knicks to be relevant and that fan base deserves a winner.

1) I do not think Nets were EVER going to get Melo. They are what 10-40? Then give up half their team for Melo, and put what Melo and Brooks on the court?

2) Denver had no power at the table. They were losing Melo at the end of the season if they kept him.

3) NYK could have gotten him in FA for nothing.

I could do a long write-up but no point..

Knicks gave up like two 12-15 ppg scorers and a young PG for an old one and a 25 ppg scorer, I see this as no upgrade!

Your just mad cuz they are a bigger problem for you and ur heat

I think the worst part is they traded Curry's contract away (if that is true)

Well I guess Melo will be coming off the bench in the All-Star games now unless he starts at PF..lol

Anybody think the Nets owner (can't spell his name right) is extremely smart. He gave the Nuggets some much leverage. I think he single-handedly forced the Knicks to give the 1st rounder and Mosgov.

I think the Knicks improved with this trade, I'm just not sure how much.

Boston, Miami, Chicago are clearly better IMO.

Then, Orlando is probably better.

And, they might be equal with Atlanta in the regular season, but should be better in the post-season, and might even be better than Orlando in the post-season, with the big-time clutch players they have.

What's everyone else think??

As a bulls fan I am actually happy with this deal. Gallo, Felton and Chandler would kill us.
