Instead of "sources" I'll use I heard it through the "GrapeVine." The latest rumor is that Walsh is working on a deal that would bring Chancy Billiups and Melo to New York for all the Youth we have including future #1 draft picks! The "Grapevine" also stated that Eddy Curry's expiring contract would secure Billups $13.2 million contract. (Billups has one more year not guaranteed.) Billups would sell his soul to play with Amare & Melo in NYC for the window of chip left in him and would deliver a blow to the HEAT'S Auto-chip. However, the St John's Assistant Coach who relayed this possibility also stated that this would be a December move when Felton can be dealt! How much rumor is this? I truly don't know. However, it makes sense that Billups would not want to play with a Melo-less Nugget team. From what the Grapevine says is that the Cav's detest LBJ's move so much,they may be willing to help out New York if it meant LBJ's demise! Ten years ago Sprewell, Houston, LJ and MC took the Knicks to the finals vs the Spurs, so the Karma factor is on our side. Amare & Melo have many years left if they stay healthy. Billiups has two years at best to win another chip. It may be noted that even with a one year at an all cost chip run with Billups would still leave the Knicks with Studdy & Melo. I say "GO FOR IT WALSH." If you pull this off and can surround these three Mega Stars with viable role players.......a Big YES! LGK!
The best thing I'm looking forward to in LBE'S? No more Fuhking Rooster guy with that fuhking hat photos! LOL
Where's Statesman ??? Where's the guy with face made for radio "saying I would be on the wrong side of History?" The only thing I know is that GALLO is HISTORY! Amen to him and the D-leaguers squad that GONE~~~~~~
via twitter: "Chris Tomasson: Details of Melo's extension. After earning $18.52 mil next season, he'll get $19.45 mil (12-13), $21.49 million (13-14), $23.53 mil (14-15)"
dang, thats a rich a contract. didn't he hear? Superstars are taking pay cuts to teamup...he must not have gotten the memo.
Pleased to know that you are alive and well and did not die of happiness. Instead you have seized the moment to remind us of your post in September 2010 -- derived from your superior inside "grapevine" sources--a clear reminder of your long-standing and unrelenting quest for the Melo man and his Chauncey sidekick. Congratulations for your insight and indefatigible campaign.
BARF and Cooley with an appearance on the same day, on the same thread. Now that's a sure sign that something special is happening here. Hope you fellas are doing well.
Peaceman, you finally got your wish. The Melo-Felo will be ocming to the Mecca, along with his sidekick Mr. Big Shot, AJohnson, and the two othe scrubs mentioned in the deal...
THe next 28 games will quite interesting... I am glad they kept LFields though...
Welcome to all the new commenters. Make yourself comfortable. This is the place to be for some real nice fellowship and feisty intelligent (sometimes assinine) fun. Characters Accepted.
Man, I was getting bored. I'm juiced now. What about you guys? Tiem for an LBE tomorrow and a radio show shortly thereafter. Let's pick a date for the radio, call-in, show. Lousy trade. Wonderful trade. Ah, to hell with lousy. It is what it is and I am excited. If it fails, I'll just say, it was worth it as a fan suffering for years under less than mediocrity.
Let's get this party started.
@Peaceman Yeahhhhhh Boyyyyyyyyyi! The Script and cloak of Hypocrates (all those MSM hatin' on Zeke and those numb-nuts claiming that Melo should have come this summer and forgo $40 mil) have all been revealed. More to come...the other shoe ain't fall yet.
@Peaceman Yeah, burn those Rooster photos. Let's start the LBE with a bon-fire. (Note -- this is note an anti-Gallo sentiment. It is an anti-Rooster photo sentiment), And no more ultra-metro-sexy pics of Gallo. LOL
@Peaceman In addition to that stupid Rooster photo, we will see no more FeltOFF now that he's OFF the squad. Just sweet Melo-dy (hat tip PUP) from now on. Melo-dy in a fleece sweater, no bra, on a cool winter day with the hawk coming off the Hudson.
Say Bloggas, count Steady ON for an LBE is BARF joins in at Game time. 8:05 tip off.
@Peaceman I like the rooster dude w/ the funky hat. I thought it was hilarious. LOL!
@Peaceman OK phone is on.
@Orange_and_Blue OK will try! BRB..O&B I may calll you!
@Peaceman Peaceman if you set it up we'll do it.
@Lives "MSM Interaction tariff", u should mock up what a proper NYK contract should look like, its genius.
Melo to Walsh: "Look, Beck and Hahn are cool but if you want me to do more than spit and turn my head at Isola and Berman, you're gonna have to pump up those interaction tariffs numbers, pops"
Yes, Peaceman, they did. I believe they all took about 2-3 million dollars less...each...so...yeah. LMAO I'm not sure why people make a big deal about how Bron & Wade took a few less dollars either.
@BARF He got the memo. Pay cuts are for superstars on teams not in New York. Just ask Studdy. Instead of thinking that the market is value added, they ask for a premium which includes an MSM Interaction tariff. They get paid extra for the pain and suffering of dealing with the New York press.
@Post_up_Prince Prince.... I died all day of happyness! lol
THE KNICKS ARE BACK...BABY! NOW IF WE STAY HEALTHY THE SKY IS THE LIMIT! WHERE"S STATESMAN?????? LMAO~
@Cooleyhigh brother Cooley..thanks! However, please don't call Balkman a Scrub! He can play D when we need it and run the floor! He led our sorry ass team in Blocks and Shut Durant down in his first NBA game...Summer League or not!
@BARF Funny Barf...but good to see you bro!
@Lives I'll be at the LBE and if you do the radio show.
@Lives I'll be there.
