we will next year (hopefully). this year, no, i don't see it either...BUT

anybody that says this was a bad trade is a hater, point blank period.

all of the ppl we lost can be easily replaced. melo? hell no. melo was not leaving 50 million on the table. melo allows us to get a chris paul. the pieces are in place but we're not done yet.

i understand the hatred of anything ny but chill with it.

and if gallo, felton, mozgov, etc. were so damn good then why the hell were we two games above .500 then? mozgov saw like two or three games any damn way. wow. but he was so important.

all this talk about we lack a bench and we don't have defense as if trading for melo created these situations. PLEASE. we never had a bench or defense so wth are ppl talking about?

The Nuggets learned from the Cavs mistake and didn't listen to all that "im keeping my options open" stuff. And the Nuggets may actually be better off prepared to contend sooner than later.
The irony here is the Nuggets are 2-0 since the trade. Last night they beat the Celtics in Denver. I caught the fourth quarter of the game on TNT and they played great defense.

Channing Frye and Ray Felton look like they will be positive additions. Melo leaving the Nuggets may give Nene more shots and it looks like they are going to be able to put some lineups out on the floor that are very athletic and run the floor well.

Give the Knicks about 5-6 games with Melo in the lineup and then Billups, Melo, and Amare will fully learn each others style and patterns. This will be huge. Denver became very deep but with decent players. Remember the old story: You have to give up to get. You can't just trade garbage for stars !

I think Gallinari will benifit the most from this trade and playing under George Karl. He's 6' 11'' shooter, who can take it to the cup and isn't afraid of playing D. He's a nightmare match up for any player. All he needs to do get a post game and he can draw double-teams. Plus he's only 22!! I don't want to compare him to Carmelo yet, but he just might be what the Nuggets need moving forward. I know people think that Denver got nothing for Carmelo, but only time will tell who got the better end of the trade.

I disagree the Nuggets got nothing for Carmelo. Wilson Chandler can probably score 16 to 18 point a game in the Nuggets offense. He rebounds and plays defense. Ray Felton is pretty good point guard, he's younger and more athletic than Chauncy Billups. Gallinari is still pretty raw and inconsistent.

This trade made the Nuggest younger and more athletic. They've look like they are going to be an up tempo team with their new lineup and they may be a better defensive team. Also look for better distribution of the basketball on offense.

Season is early so far but the Knicks are allowing opponents to shoot 49.6% from the field.

Their only win is against 0-3 Boston in a squeeker.

So, let's start the death watch for D'Antoni.....

Now I see why the knicks organization hesitated getting carmello. If you take a look at their style of play mello and amare slows up D'Antoni offense. Knicks is going to have to either dismantle their team or fire D'Antoni.

Quiz:
Which sounds easier to get rid of?

Well first off, let's remember just HOW bad the Knicks were. As they are now they are at least not a laughing stock so overall this is a lot better for them.

However, their problem isn't OFFENSE....it's DEFENSE where they are ranked about dead last in the league. No one has yet been able to get Amare or Carmello to play D not get D'Antoni to COACH D.

Nuggets beat the Knicks? Yay! I think I just saw the score flashing at the bottom of the screen while I was watching the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl highlights.

That's about all the attention I have for the NBA as of yet.

Edit: Oops. I think that was the Bucks. Sorry. My bad.
