There only hope is that another free agent joins up. We've seen Melo with another elite scorer before. Iverson put up like 26\7 on 45%. Not as efficient as Amare but both poor defenders who scored the ball. Amare blocks some shots, Iverson got some steals.

What's the Knick cap situation even look like? Didn't Melo\Amare get more money than LeBron\Bosh did?. What do they have to work with in the next 3 years?

By 2012 they will be comfortably under the cap to sign more players.

You know what I dont get about the OP, and some members here....


Wtf did you actually expect during this season when this trade went down?



This was CLEARLY, CLEARLY, CLEARLY a trade made for the future. I'd even go so far as to say Billups is not even in their long term plans for down the road.


The knicks have been together for about what....10-15 games or so, and you're ALREADY complaining? They havent had a training camp together. They havent filled out their roster yet, and people are already talking shit? Seriously?




What is it about people now, that demand instant satisfaction all of a sudden? "WE WANT RESULTS, AND WE WANT THEM NOW!"




Like I said, this is a move done to set up the pieces for later on down the road. I expect the roster to be further played with during the offseason, and a few more additions done here and there. Expect a nice season next year.

That's not true at all... Yes a lot of the Knicks garbage players will be off the books, but New York will only have $11 mill to fill our almost an entire roster. I find it funny when Knicks fans think they will have all this money to spend in 2012. Which couldn't be farther from the truth.

Melo + Amare cost the Knicks more than Bosh + Wade + Lebron cost the Heat.
