Wouldn't that be a strange one.

Nuggets, before the trade, seemed as if they were yet another 1st round (or 2nd round) and out team. Their only saving grace would be to go on a run (which all good teams are capable of). They traded away their top two players but have been basking in the afterglow since the trade. They ARE on a run. Considering that the run has lasted so long, it might continue in through the playoffs.

Knicks, before the trade, seemed as if they were gonna start falling in the standings, considering that they had a losing record every month aside for that 14-1 spurt in Nov/Dec. With the Melo trade, they started out 6-3 but then went 1-9. Still, their potential is starting to show and they are 8-4 (I think) against .500 or better teams. With their potential, talent, and since they are starting to win, I believe they can pull off a few upsets.

So, this takes us down to a Denver vs New York finals.

What would the story lines be?

Do you think they can make it?

Do you think it'd be an interesting finals? I know I would.

Vote and comment!

The Nuggets have the potential to do big things during these upcoming playoffs. Their depth is ridiculous, they play as a team and are youthful and energetic. Wish them the best

Both will get knocked out in the first round, with the Knicks likely to go down quickly because they will go up against either the Heat or the Celtics - either in a sweep or in 5.

Denver will have a good series against Oklahoma City, but OKC would likely pull it out.

btw, I put up a possible option for both teams and made it multiple selection.

Yes, it would be weird. Both teams traded away so much and to have them both in the finals...

though I DO agree that the chances are slim for both teams.

With the Nuggets, they were a better team with Billups and Melo and still seemed to be going to a 1 and done situation...unless they went on a run.

Now, they are a bit worse (but much, much deeper) but are on the "fabled" run that can propel a team. Only question now is if the run will last long enough.

With the Knicks, like I mentioned, they had a losing record really. They were fading. It took an MVP level Amare, a near allstar level Felton, and a "I'm gonna sign that guy" level Chandler to get them to go 14-1 in late nov/early dec. After that, it was .500 or below ball. So to me, they were not a 28-26 team at the half. I'd cut down that 14-1 spurt to a more realistic 10-5 (they were pretty crappy teams aside for 2 games) and that put them at below .500 at the break.

But with the infusion of talent, they've done pretty good against .500 teams. Too bad chemistry issues have arisen. Plus, D'antoni still kinda sucks (c'mon Jared Jeffries!!!! and no bench...finally playing a bench). In the end, though, they have an amazing Amare, Melo, and Billups to carry them. And with some support from Toney(shooter), SHawne/Walker(3 pointer), SHeldon(defense) , and Anthony Carter (backup leadership), The knicks can DO some noise as originally thought of before their 1-9 slide.

Knicks rule! Though if we DO have someone that is slightly mentally challenged is Jeffries and...

...Mike D'Antoni (no bench use for 2 1/2 years, exiles good players, too many minutes to starters, no defense, causes defensive mismatches on purpose, too many 3 pointers, doesn't use the appropriate players, Plays Jared Jeffries)

NY won't even get close to a "close" game cuz they'll be blown away. Carmelo will win them maybe 1-2 games but they'll still lose the series.

Why is there someone like you in every thread? Please stop. I understand if it clearly is a trolling thread, but this is a sports forum and this question is certainly viable.

Both teams, imo, are most probably 1st round exits. Still, I made SURE to explain why there might be a Knicks vs Nuggets first round. In the end, though, I think EVERYONE KNOWS that the chances are slim for BOTH teams.

But a discussion is a discussion.

I just want to know what the reaction would be.

-Gallo and Mozgov were NY. They displayed what new york is all about, interracial communities (aside for most jewish people that stuck to their own areas and schools :) joke!). So, it was strange to trade away both. Felton was at near allstar levels for 2 months. Chandler was important for us during the first 3 months also. So, they were part of the team big time.

-And really no need to talk about the Nuggets side. Melo was drafted and the second he got to the team, they've been in the playoffs. It started and ended with Melo. NO matter how bitter some fans are (ok, tons of fans), they gotta understand what Melo did for them for 7 1/2 years. From the getgo, he got them into the playoffs. Lebron didn't. Melo did. 1 and out in the playoffs? Ok, but remember that the west has always been the strongest conference and it was EVEN STRONGER back then. He finally got some help in Iverson (Iverson just doesn't mesh well with teams after Philly) and Billups and they got further.
-And Billups is the second part of all this. A Denver native. Allstar. Championship winner. Finally helped Melo out enough to get them past the 1st round. Too bad that they didn't have much of a chance in the playoffs in 2010 because of Karl not being there. Karl really IS a good coach. Wish we Knicks fan had that (ok, starting to ramble now).

You are a poor excuse of a Knick fan, Go live in Denver so you can be close to your boy GALLO. Denver has zero legit go to guy in a 7 round series. That will kill them in close games.

but they have three things that will help them in the playoffs. Lets not have our minds clouded just because we're a Nuggets fan, Knicks fan, or Knicks hater. They have a great coach; a deeeeeeep roster; and they are on "a run". Don't underestimate runs. Look at the Knicks 14-1 run this year. Were the Knicks really THAT good? no, but that hot streak allowed them to go on a hot streak and that hot streak produced an MVP level amare, near allstar level Felton, and a "I'm gonna sign this guy" level Chandler, along with our 14-1 record. So, the hot streak is a powerful weapon, and when backed up by a deep talented team (even if it doesn't have a real #1) and a good coach, things can happen.

But yeah, I don't know if the Knicks would "get their *** handed to them". We would have to see how the teams do in the playoffs.

Both teams, imo, would have to get scorching hot to make the playoffs anyway, so it would be a completely different team dynamic and technically, a completely completely different team they'd be going up against if they make the finals (either team).

We would really have to see how things go in the playoffs to evaluate who'd win.

First off, sheesh, quite harsh you are.

Second, I don't know about the Heat. Every seems to want them to lose and think they are our best matchup...but that is mostly perception since they haven't been as good as people thought they'd be...but damn, they're still good. and they DO still have Lebron and Wade.

The Celtics...they're a tough team. They've also beaten us all 3 meetings this year. One positive, though, is that we've played them tough every single game and might have actually won 1 of the games if the time keeper would have stopped the time when Pierce made that shot (at 0.9), and not at 0.3. So, we played them hard and feel we have a good chance.

Orlando....don't think we have a chance. Nelson seems to go off for superb games against the Knicks and with Dwight getting his usual 25/15 against us...

Bulls...we have a chance, as evidenced in our wins against them (yes, 1 game was without Boozer and another without Noah but still). It would be a big time athletic game and it took us having TWO career type 3 point shooting games to beat them.

So, we have a very small chance but we do.

Denver, imo, has a somewhat easier time. Plus, they are higher seeded. Thunder in the first round, which is a hard matchup but still is a young team. and then its against Dallas, Spurs, or Lakers in the 2nd round (most probably). So, difficult 2nd round but they have a chance maybe.


Well our owner is mentally challenged. Isiah was mentally challenged. Dantoni and his brother are mentally challenged. So when people were/are hating on us yes it's like hating on a mentally challenged kid. We sucked for so long so what's to hate?

Gallo and Chandler are suddenly amazing players.

Yeah, and how Melo is now barely a top 15 to top 30 player and before the season he was ranked at #7 by PSD and #8 the year before...and his game has NOT degressed and only 1 player could be argued to have passed him (Rose).

But what can you do.

And this thread is hypothetical. The chances are still. I think EVERYONE expects BOTH teams to be taken out in the first round. But I put up reasons on why both teams might make it. Small probability, but still possible.

I wonder if one of the traded players will say something negative. I can see Felton saying something bad. He feels (and I do agree) that he gave NY a lot and even let himself be signed to a 2 year deal at only 7.5 million...just to play in NY. And wasn't happy about being traded. I can see him going off and saying some negative stuff.

I can also see Mozgov saying how sad he is because of the trade. He liked his NY. He liked his "red herring under the rabbit" (or whatever it was called..Knicks fans know what I'm talking about if they frequent the Knicks board) and how he felt at home in NY considering its such a culturally diverse place.

Gallo has always been somewhat soft with the mouth, so I doubt he'd speak out.

Chandler is just a nice guy, so he won't. Plus, he knew he'd get traded.

Melo won't say anything bad. He's been trying to play the whole neutral part since before the season started (even though 99% of people know he wanted to be traded to the knicks during the season or before the season). I think he'd stay quiet then too.

Billups is just a nice guy. Won't say anything aside for professing his love for the Denver.

The Nuggets are so much better after that trade and the Knicks are were playing pretty good basketball before the trade. The Nuggets could definitely surprise some teams. They are definitely not a fluke.

trust me, the Knicks were NOT playing "pretty good basketball" before the trade. Yes, we were over .500 at 28-26, but any Knick fan can tell you that we were on our way down.

Like I mentioned in another post, make that 14-1 spurt in Late November/Early December into a more realistic (for a good team) 10-5, and the Knicks are below .500.

If you look at their records, they were a losing team or a .500 team outside of that 14-1 spurt, which makes me think that they wouldn't even have gone 10-5 without the hot streak...more like 8-7. That's the type of level they were at before the trade.

but to add, yes, the Nuggets got a big haul. They made Dolan get involved by holding out till the trade deadline. Once DOlan got involved, our hopes of getting Melo during free agency (best possible outcome) or on the "cheap" for Chandler, Randolph, Curry, and 1st rounder just got thrown out the window. But it was NOT lopsided. Its just that D'antoni has not really found out how to coach the team.

I don't see a team with both Melo and Amare , also Billups losing in 6 games to anyone. maybe 7 games. This is basketball where 2 stars can take you far. look what clev did with 1 star past 4 yrs.

As much as I love what the Nuggets did at the deadline, some people saying they'll make a deep playoff run are stretching a bit here. If all goes according to plan, they play OKC in round 1, San Antonio in round 2, and LA in round 3. Without HCA in any series. Tough road for them, I think OKC wins that series in 5-6.

I would not be surprised if the Knicks beat the Celtics and I would not be surprised if the Nuggs beat OKC the Nuggs seem to have OKC's number and to be honest we are one of the best teams right now so why not.. Will we make it to the finals probably not but for a team getting further I would say the Nuggs just for the fact we actually have a bench. When I look at NY's losses of course the big three there score but almost nothing from the bench.. That will change in a couple years I can see players wanting to go to the Knicks because it is NY and Amare, Melo but till they get a half way decent supporting cast it isn't happening. Plus from my own thinking most Nuggets fans were most disappointed in losing Billups and I am in the minority, to me he takes to many bad shots and when the playoffs rolled around for us he seemed tired. I think his age is catching up with him, I think if NY is smart they unload him!! Anyways for now I think the Nuggs are better but if NY can put some pieces together they can be a pretty great team. They just gave up too much this year to do anything!!

Quick question Gameover, just wondering if you heard anything about who the Nuggets are gonna try to keep this offseason? You guys have a lot of free agents. Chandler, Nene, JR, Kenyon, Afflalo is restricted right?

It seems almost like Chandler and Nene will get a lot of money thrown their way this offseason.

Afflalo, Chandler, and Nene (if he opts out) will all get larger offers is what I'd be guessing. Kenyon is expendable too I'd think, unless he'd want to sign for like a vets min, which is what he'll likely get from other teams as well.

I guess it depends on the CBA... If it were my guess I'd say they keep Afflalo cause Chandler will likely get a heavy contract elsewhere that they wouldn't want to match with Gallo already being there.

I just took a look at their salaries and nene has an 11.6 mil player option, the nuggets can offer afflalo a 2.9 mil qualifying offer and can offer chandler a 3 mil qualifying offer. So to me it seems that neither afflalo or chandler will accept those offers but i think nene might take that 11.6 mil player option.

As for kenyon i'd like to see him back at a bargain. He's still pretty productive.

From what I heard their number one priority is signing Nene, I think Afflalo will be back, personally I think the biggest question mark is JR simply because him and Karl don't get along..

Ah, thanks for the insight man. Yeah, Karl and JR have had a rocky relationship for a while now. I remember reading somewhere that Nene likes it in Denver, so hopefully he stays. Even as a Laker fan, I like what I saw with you guys today haha. Very solid, I hope Denver remains a strong team, I like our rivalry, and its something the NBA needs more of.

Who is on your sig ohh a Patriot so of course your a Boston fan why should you think NY would not win a single game?? If I had to bet I would of course bet Boston but could I see NY winning you bet.. I hate Melo more than any fan but he can score and if him and Amare are what they can be with Billups why not?? They won't have the bench though but I also don't see Boston going to far. Miami and The Bulls are the top teams to me in the East..

Have you guys listened to the crowd during Heat, Knick games at the heat's arena?

As far as I know Chandler is a restricted FA, so anything offered, we'd be able to match.

Afflalo could be too, but I'm more certain of Chandler.

ohreally
04-04-2011, 01:02 AM
I love team ball and the Nuggets have been playing very nice team ball. It certainly is a long shot but the Nuggets are stocked with capable players and if Afflalo is healthy they have a lot of people that can get hot and a lot of bodies to wear an opposing team down. I wouldn't be surprised if they made it to the WCF or totally shocked if they made it to the finals. But much of that is that I'd like to see a de-emphasis on accumulating stars.

Other than the Lakers I don't see any other team that can't be questioned on some level, so anything is possible this year. But the Knicks have to rank 1415 among playoff teams that could advance.

See I think they'd go for Afflalo instead if they had to choose one guy. Afflalo will still command less money than Chandler I think.

jr smith and nene have both stated they want to retire in denver and i doubt the FO will let loyal players go. they can get as much $$ as they want, remember smith is only 26. afflalo stated he wontt be going anywhere on twitter, "@CrazySituation im not going anywhere ..... denver is home". chandler stated he wants to see how the season goes for his extension. Kenyon will hopefully take less money to come back.. i doubt he would want to move anywhere else if he could get the money here. hes my only question mark tho.

Wouldn't that be a strange one.

Nuggets, before the trade, seemed as if they were yet another 1st round (or 2nd round) and out team. Their only saving grace would be to go on a run (which all good teams are capable of). They traded away their top two players but have been basking in the afterglow since the trade. They ARE on a run. Considering that the run has lasted so long, it might continue in through the playoffs.

Knicks, before the trade, seemed as if they were gonna start falling in the standings, considering that they had a losing record every month aside for that 14-1 spurt in Nov/Dec. With the Melo trade, they started out 6-3 but then went 1-9. Still, their potential is starting to show and they are 8-4 (I think) against .500 or better teams. With their potential, talent, and since they are starting to win, I believe they can pull off a few upsets.

So, this takes us down to a Denver vs New York finals.

What would the story lines be?

Do you think they can make it?

Do you think it'd be an interesting finals? I know I would.

Dude...they FORCED Billups to go to NY just because they wanted to trade Melo and because they didn't want to pick up his 14 million option next year.

it had to be done and if billups wants to he can return. we wanted to get younger and get the most out of the trade, plus i would not want to give billups 14 mill for a year hes just not that good anymore.

That would be great. Of course, if you want a playoffs, where the teams score over 150 points per game.
JK, I don't think that will happen soon.
Denver's D has been one of the best in the league since the trade.

This isn't going to happen, but Denver has a much better shot. Would love for the Heat to lose though.

I don't get why the Knicks fans are automatically defaulting to the "haterzzz" line.

The fact is that the Knicks are going to be the #7 seed. Which means they will be playing the Heat or the Celtics, two of the top favorites to win it all, not to mention have far more talent and better team chemistry than the Knicks do. The likelihood of the Knicks getting swept is far far far higher than them actually pulling off a series win.

I think we had a similar thread like this a while back. Neither team is coming close to smelling the Finals.

Denver COULD get past round one. The only way they get past round two is if they get the right matchup. It's possible they could get to the West finals but I can't see it.

Knicks I don't see making much of a series in the first round unless they play Boston. If there's no Shaq then they might be able to push Boston. Even then, I don't see the upset there.
I have them both eliminated in round one.

Knicks rule! Though if we DO have someone that is slightly mentally challenged is Jeffries and...

...Mike D'Antoni (no bench use for 2 1/2 years, exiles good players, too many minutes to starters, no defense, causes defensive mismatches on purpose, too many 3 pointers, doesn't use the appropriate players, Plays Jared Jeffries)

Both will get knocked out in the first round, with the Knicks likely to go down quickly because they will go up against either the Heat or the Celtics - either in a sweep or in 5.

Denver will have a good series against Oklahoma City, but OKC would likely pull it out.

Agree,I don't see how they can go far if they face OKC in the 1st round,they'll win at most 2 games in the series,OKC is the real deal in the west behind LA and SA.

The Spurs turned into a running team this year and Denver runs better than them and are 10 deep. I still think the lakers beat them in 6 or 7.
