Having Gallo or Melo neither is going to get the Knicks to champioship right away.
Obviously you must have a magic wand where you can BUY all the players necessary to build a championship with no homegrown drafted talent.
By the way it was mentioned before how the Celtics acquired Ray and Garnett. But they also had Rondo, Perkins, Big Baby that they drafted.
I dont remember how many teams bought a whole roster and won a championship.
at the time these 3 were a huge unknown (they had no other choice but play them)...rondo wasnt even suppose to be in boston cuse they wanted to add him to the trade. boston was basically just garnet,allen,and pierce...luckily, they were able to build great chemistry with rondo and perkins in the starting lineup.
