D'aNini has only won ANYWHERE in the NBA with one PG to implement his crack-attack offense.It's crazy to think he wouldn't try to get him when he is available.This could delay the Donnie to Isiah handoff if Dolan buys the idea that Donnie could deliver Skeevee Stevie, who gets their wife preggers AND then walks out the door, this summer.D'Olan doesn't want his idol to have half a plate.
Paul Coro, Arizona Republic: “Suns guard Steve Nash said he did not speak to his agent, Bill Duffy, to lead to Duffy’s comments in an espn.com article that “We would expect that they (the Suns) may entertain moving him during the summer” and that he and Nash are “ready” for that.
So much for "Thou shalt not covet".LGK
@Tman Freakin terrible! I can respect and do respect Nash. But STAT's possible short window may be made shorter by the age of Stevie. I'm tired of D'Amphony running the asylum. He needs to go if the Melo deal is tied up b/c D'Antoni can only imagine his offense w/ Nash.
Needs to go!
Favors or Fields?Kwame Favors?Denver has to be coveting Fields and that is probably the stumbling block in this deal.Do you add Fields to the pot with Chandler?If you swap points you send 3 Knick starters to Denmark for Carmelo Mellifluous and Chance Gardener in an attempt to be relevant.Do you do it?HELL NO!!!!WE KEEP FIELDS!We are not that Gullible, except for D'oltan the Simpleton.He apparently needs a special gift for a bromance.James, fycke him, not us!Don't trade Fields.LGK
@Orange_and_Blue It's not what I think, it's what Zeke thinks that matters.Donnie likes talented thugz so he might make a run at Gasol, a man who's elbow has never met a man it didn't want to make an impression on.Zeke will be a lot more careful next time around whatever Hessian he goes after it will be with an ey on having enuff capital to pursue Howard the Mother Ducker.If he, not long gone Donnie, can pull that off he might fullfill his own opinion of himself.Time will tell.
PS Detroit is gonna be sold soon.Dumars might in trouble.Who knows, maybe the knew owner may have a mancrush on Zeke.Detroit needs all the Ike-cons it can get.
@Tman T'Man Fields and Chandler I prefer of Gallinari. Seems like the rooster is sandbagging it w/ the rumors still flying so he doesn't have to leave Eataly and his God Father's side. But from a financial standpoint (assuming the potential of all three of Chandler, Fields and Gallo are up in the air) Gallo's contract is the best for a rebuilding team. Fields is 2nd best b/c it is a two year contract that unlike Chandler's doesn't have to be extended this summer.
But here's a question. If fields or Gallo (b/c his uncle doesn't want to give up his Godson) blocks a trade for Melo, then what route do the Knicks take? Tell me do you make a bid for Restricted Free Agent Center Marc Gasol, do you pursue Unrestricted Free Agent Center Tyson Chandler. Is Melo really tired of waiting. Is he pulling a redux of his hit and run in that mele at the Garden when he wouldn't face off against a stringy but riled up Jared Jefferies? What would you do if your the GM?
There were so many sub-plots in this game. Oh Scripto Faithfuls, what did ya'll see? The NBA is indeed about Acting. Studdy pulls up in the Bentley with a turf toe except he does notplay on turf. The NYK gets to do a major showcase of Thrill Will as the leading man. Cooly, the Thrill man delivers. He did'nt deliver because he wants to facilitate the NYK and thank them for having drafted him. Nah-ah!! He delivered because he's not a weak-minded softy like Dani-boy. More importantly, he delivered because he's playing for his next contract this summer. If he's traded at the deadline, a smart GM would go ahead and try to lock him in a value at today's dollar. The more realistic scenario will be a summertime deal for Chandler.
When it was all said and done, the NYK told Denver--here, take him, he can fill in for your Megaman because look what he did when he filled in for ours. Just Bloguin!
Another statement here tonight is that both teams showcased what they would be if they were clearly gutted by a Melomaniacal trade. Bloga Puhh-Leaaaazzzzze. There was a point in the game when our side consisted of Douglas, Walker, Williams, Danilo and Mozgov. Throw in Rautins and you have the combo that any and every GM would be jonesing to do. The question then goes back out to Anthony: which reduced squad would you prefer to play with and against when in NY? With the NYK victory, the answer should be abundantly clear. Coveting OTPs only brings problems and other dangers. Your cup never fills and the required chemistry and blood bond that is required to win playoff-type games would never be met. That element is sorely lacking at Mecca.
There's a chicken game at play and everybody knows at Mecca and in Rocky Mountain High what its going to take to deliver on the Lil' General's promise that Mecca would have its own big 3 after Boston got theirs. That promise was made personally to Dolan and Dolan Wiki-leaked it (albeit preamturely) to the NYK fanbase.
Bloggas leave your swords sheathed and wait for the Director to say: ACTION--then you can pull out your piece. You know what's good.

@Orange_and_Blue The BS that is MSG unfortunately comes with the territory--IT is a Business. Chandler displayed quite a nice repertoire last night which many at Mecca, like you and Steady have come to appreciate. And just like Monty moved on and thrived, so too Will Thrill and thrive.

@Steady Steady my man! Good read. I particularly like the following part. NIce way to describe the debilitating effects of Covitis.
"Coveting OTPs only brings problems and other dangers. Your cup never fills and the required chemistry and blood bond that is required to win playoff-type games would never be met. That element is sorely lacking at Mecca."
Let me say this and be CLEAR, I'm a HUGE fan of Wilson Chandler. I don't know whether he'll go or stay be one of the three that heads over to Denver or what. But that kid has been a good soldier for this organization. It is my hope he stays, since Gallo's and Fields contracts are more palatable towards a rebuilding Nuggets franchise. But he's good. A professional. A great teamate. I always see him out there high fiving and cheer his teamates on after a good play in his reserved manner. Many don't pay him mind and floss showing the knowledgeable fans at Mecca how selfish they are pointing to themselves and not sharing the joy of the team play with Chandler. Name em- Harrington, Felton and others. THis kids done good for the Knicks. He's been Zeke's best find. If he stays I'll be really happy. If he goes, my fandom will follow him play. I hope he lands on an up and comer. I hope he can fulfill both his dreams to get the bucks he deserves while playing in NY, whether that be the Mecca or Brookly.
And believe me everyone, if Chandler some how gets to free agency and lands with the Nets who could afford him an IMHO could use him. I will also be a Nets fan.
Hate me all you want. That's a good young man out there and deserves better than the BS that is MSG!
