Everyone needs to know their role then. Melo and Amar'e would be the go to guys on pick and rolls and when defenses collapse to them, the other players on the team will be open to hit the open jumper, or in the Knicks' case this season, the open 3-pointer. As long as this team knows their role and has their identity squared away, Melo would just push them over the top.

They haven't actually gotten a pass. Cleveland's douche bag owner is doing a personal investigation before he sends a formal complaint. He wants to hand the NBA the complaint and a case report at the same time.

As far as I know Melo has not demanded a trade or anything. He has merely said that he will only sign the extension if he gets traded to the Knicks. The Nuggets are well within their rights to trade him anywhere they want as a rental to a contending team. I don't think he has said anything opposing such a deal.

No need to panic in trying to get Melo. He's a great player, but another scorer (especially one who demands the touches he does) is hardly a priority. Team chemistry seems to really be starting to gel right now, and it would be stupid to gut the team in hopes of landing a guy who absolutely will not put them "over the top" - not right away, at least. The Nuggets have no leverage in this situation either, Walsh should just sit back and bide his time. I really believe they can get this guy for peanuts if they just don't panic.

But more pressing is the Knicks lack of front-court defense. Maybe, after, signing Melo, they should include him in a package to nab Howard. Fantasy, obviously, but we must dream big! Plus it would be pretty amusing.

Some of you guys make it seem like we've built some sort of title contender, the fact of the matter is the team is red hot right now but the way we are constructed right now imo we can't smell a conference final let alone an NBA final. We get Melo it may take a little more time for the team to gel once again, we may lose some role players but now we're in great position with not 1 but 2 young superstars in their prime and a great coach who will get the best out of them and an excellent GM who will make the move that is best for the team.

You also have to consider that if we're offering the Nuggs a bag of chips for Melo a championship contender can come by and swoop em up. Then you have let's say an Orlando Magic squad for example with Melo and Dwight that definitely can win an NBA title this season. Do you think Melo wouldn't resign with Orlando after winning an NBA title??? You guys are just being naiive because if Lebron was available before the deadline last season or Wade you would've done it in a heartbeat but now we have ourselves a POSSIBLE 45 to 50 win team and we think we're unbeatable and we won't give up a backup in Gallo to get a bonafide superstar in CARMELO ANTHONY think logically not with your hearts...Remember a few years ago when the T'Wolves wanted to include Channing Frye in a deal for KG and the Knicks fans were going nuts over it thinking Frye would be a superstar and KG's towards the end of his career. Let go of the attachments and Donnie please go and get Melo before anyone else does and we regret it for a very long time. Not trying to bash anyone, just saying...

the question is, "is waiting for carmelo worth it or gutting the team messsing with chemistry puts us back a step". honestly two scoring machines is fine with me, if we can bring someone who can play defense is good. is it any way we can bring birdman anderson here please someone answer this. hes a fan favorite, love his game.

My thing is,for the optimist and realist of the forum both...Does ANYONE believe we can win more than one playoff series,if even that?I think common sense would say no.So why are we settling just because we finally won a few games.Just because we're finally on the positive end of the win/loss ledger?

The great coach is D'Antoni who when he's had the players that fit his system has averaged ohhhh approximately 55-60 wins per season and looks like he's well on his way to about 45-50 right now. Anyways, get Melo make a decent deal try to AT LEAST KEEP 1 of the 3 in Chandler, Gallo and Fields. I prefer Fields because he reminds me of that championship caliber role player that just does everything well and fits so perfect with Melo and Amar'e although Gallo and Chandler are both more talented but I'd love to keep 2 of them. At the end of the day I really do NOT believe Melo will come free so stop being cheapskates and give up a few decent players to get a SUPERSTAR.

I agree with your last statement.Its gotten to the point to where you have to ask who the F are we?Who are we to tell Denver who we're willing to give up for Melo?It should be the other way around.Theyre gonna be the ones getting the short end of the stick regardless,who are we to say you cant have him and him and him?Only person who's played well enough to earn that honor is Amare.Other than that,everyone is expendable when it comes to Melo.We dont get to dictate.Getting Melo is an investment...not really a risk. BTW that investment is arguably the most complete scorer in the game an is liek a 6 time allstar

I have a question because I'm not familiare with all the CBA rules.

Does getting Melo somehow hamper our chances to get CP3?

Yes and No.Yes because obviously he's gonna soak up salary but no because Walsh has been getting rid of alotta our cap killers and we barely have anyone who's salary exceeds the offseason
