NBA Discussion: Warrioooooors, come out to plaaayaaay
Chucky, our 2 picks are not protected obviously right now, and Golden States is like top 3 protected. Granted, in a deal, we could protect our picks, but you can't say those 3 picks aren't valuable.
but in this 'melo deal we'd be giving up:
-a 19 year old we picked with the #3 pick (with TONS of upside)
-arguably top 10 (definately top 15) PG
-a LARGE expiring contract
-one of the best shooters in the league (statistically) in Morrow
-at least 3 first round picks
and taking on:
-Chauncey Billups (who I like, but is aging and I think he doesn't have a great contract)
-Rip's awful contract
-Al Harrington's god awful contract.
listen, if you're telling me that come when CP3 is a free agent, he'll join 'Melo and Bropez...then yea, sign me up. But that's a lot to give up and to be taking on right now.

BTW, if it's 3rd and 97... I'm throwing a screen pass to Brian Leonard and he will convert.
Monta went toe to toe with the Bean, but in crunch time, Monta has no shot. Vintage Kobe last night.
That's too bad because Derrick made Kobe his ***** at the UC when he took over the game in crunch time.
I think Monta would be a fantastic #2 option on a title contender, but I don't see him as a center piece that can carry a team every night to victory. He's a very good player, but I just don't see him taking that step to elite/super star status.
Oh and nice hand placement there Blake.

Despite looking better against an underachieving Eagles team, I still think the Bears are one of the worst teams in the NFL. I smell a blowout victory by the Lions this week and a division sweep.
The Knicks just need a center in the worst possible way.
Chandler is a #3. His offensive production is skewed bc he plays for D'Antoni. Put him in a different system, and he's an upper tier #3.
A #2 to me is a guy who can take over the offense when Amare hits the bench. A guy who will allow our offensive production to sustain a good 5 minutes of bench time by Amare.
If Chandler, or whoever else was a true #2, our offense wouldn't look so abysmal when Stoudemire leaves the court. They would rise up and use the opportunity for more touches to pad their stats, but none do.
We need another scorer, as crazy as that sounds, bc we only have 1 legitimate star. The rest are good role players. Their #s look better bc of the system they play in, it favors offensive production.
But the truth is, we have 1 star and a bunch of very good role players. We need another star.
