Well it finally happened, Carmelo is going to New York. I thought this would mean we could all move on with our lives, but talk on the Knicks pursuing Chris Paul, Deron Williams, or Dwight Howard in 2012. I wish we could just focus on this season and let the players play for their teams.
Real quick, I just want to put in my two cents. Denver probably did the right thing by avoiding losing Anthony for nothing. They are saving quite a bit of money and it sounds like they’re far from done with the trade market. They have some good young pieces to build around and/or trade along with two draft picks. Melo and Billups are better than Felton and Gallinari, but I wonder if they fit better in Dantoni’s system. Coach Karl had problems with Billups not pushing the ball enough, so what will Dantoni do with him? I also wonder if New York gave up too much.
If you want a look at the trade I plugged it into the trade machine. As for me, I’m anxious to move on and see what other trades go down. What do you think, was this a good trade? Or are you just happy it’s over with?
