Nice thread and thank you for starting it. Alot of common sense by Smith. I think that a majority of NYK fans agree that the Knicks need to be very understanding that Melo is not just some player. He is top 5 in the NBA. Role players will come and go but the superstars and the legacy they leave behind, like Ewing, are priceless for any NBA team. I think Dolan reaching out the way he did was a great sign. Melo wants to play in a NYK jersey and the fans want him.
I don't know why the media is all of a sudden trying to add a rush element to this. Most trades happen around the allstar breaks. Its not like another team appeared in the picture. Its not like Mello said he will sign anywhere. Its not like the 24 second clock is going to go off before the weekend. Somebody got a plane to catch? How are they going have us rush CP3 over if we have no assetts?
He said the reason Walsh turned down this deal down is because D'Antoni worships the ground Gallinari walks on.
More reason for me to say: FIRE D'ANTONI!!!!
Well win-win for the Gallo haters. If he gets traded, they'll be . If he doesn't get traded, they'll say they were right and D'Antoni plays favorites. But for me as long as Chandler's finally gone, I'm happy. If Felton is included in the deal too, that's a big bonus.
