TMAC is back baby! Wilson Chandler is a joke, he needs to move on before I make him move on.

Hate the TMAC trade, if only because it means that there is only one means of measuring success in next year's NYK terms, and that is LeBron + 1 playing in a Knick uni. Anything less is probably tantamount to fail and will bury the Knicks through 2012. The first round picks they gave up (assuming protection doesn't kick in) are really what they needed to compete, that and shedding all the garbage Isiah contracts.

But at this point, who knows who will come to the Knicks? Big City Market is a huge attraction, but then again winning is too.

Steal? it is his decision!

How am I a hypocrite? I am just being a fan. Sure part of me feels for the Cleveland fan, but like with Buffalo, Ive accepted for what my teams are: Teams that play in a market as desirable as Billings Montana.

I have another fear with the Knicks.
Let's say Lebron goes to Chicago or stays in Cleveland and Wade stays in Miami, and Bosh then goes to Miami, which IMO are very realistic possibilities
.
I hope the Knicks can show restraint because in 2011 Melo and Chris Paul will be available.

I hope they don't overspend on a Boozer and Joe Johnson.

The greedy side of me is hoping that D-Wade re-sings and recruits for Lebron to go to Miami. Damn, that would be a fun show ot have in my back yard.

+100

Joe Johnson's is like the new Crawford.

And I like Lee for the same price or less than we'd pay Boozer.

If we get stuck like that, I tend to hope that we can use this offseason to get a good supporting cast for Melo/Paul if they decide to jump ship and Lebron/Wade/Bosh/etal don't come to NYC.

But I think Wade is done with the Heat. If he stays there, it's for his family and nothing else. He will never win a title in Miami with the pieces surrounding him right now. I don't even think Bosh would put that team over the top.

Rumor is that Cleveland's implosion was because Lebron found out Delonte West is banging his mom :giggle:

Carmelo Anthony is now a New York Knick...not how I envisioned it, but sometimes bold moves are needed for other moves to happen.

Will this work? Time will tell...

Did they give up too much? Time will tell...

Will the Knicks win a title in the next 3-4 years? Time will tell..

The New York Knicks are relevant again. That much I do know!

Not a big basketball fan, but this is essentially the Knicks equivalent to the Devs landing Kovy. A top 5 or so player in the game....except the Devils got their man for way less...
I didn't think the Knicks would ship all of those players for Melo, but looks like they want the title ASAP! Should be interesting

Such a big "meh" to this trade. I feel like trading Gallinari was an absolutely HORRIBLE decision. The Knicks gave up 4 of their starting 5 for 2 starters and a bunch of role players. I honestly doubt this trade puts the Knicks over the top and get them the title because they just gave up one starter too much, especially when one of those starters was Gallo, who was only 22 and improving by leaps and bounds all the time.

I don't have a problem with it from a talent perspective. Melo or no Melo, the Knicks weren't winning a championship this year. So Chandler is irrelevant. Felron is a nice player but for his role Billups is a capable replacement. Gallinari has developed well but you have to give up something of real value. Mogzov may turn into something but he is still the definition of a project. Also, it is tough to say Mogzov is a starter.

I don't like it from the money angle. If the NBA gets a more restrictive salary cap you are committing a lot to two guys and without the draft picks to bring in cheaper talent it is hard to fill in.

The Knicks did not have great options, they could have let it play out and tried to sign Melo in the off season or saved the cap space until 2012. Neither gives a guarantee of anything. They took the guarantee of something and after what seems like decades, the Knicks are relevant and that has real value.

The CBA is a real unknown and hangs over all of this.
