Full disclosure: for some reason I thought eddie griffin was from wolfville, so I looked him up. Then I said, "oh yeah, he's the dead dude from Seton hall." Turns out the wolfville guy I was thinking of was Doug wiggins. They Noth have letters in their names and played basketball, so I was really close.

i thought this was all a joke about a comedian playing basketball because that's a thing the Knicks would do.

Honestly, I'm surprised the Knicks even got this much back. Better package than LAC/CLE were reportedly offering at last year's deadline.

Melo's tenure with the Knicks obviously never lived up to the hype, but he was tremendously fun to watch, and I honestly believe he did the best he could with the team around him. He was very divisive among Knicks fans, but it could be years before we have a 50 win team again.

Anyway, I doubt this OKC team will get past GSW in the playoffs, but I wish them the best of luck. We're onto the Porzingis era in earnest.

He did the best he could with the team around him that was constructed from the constrictions on his demanding contract.


What a victim.

Did I say he's a victim?

Also, as explained many times here, blaming his contract for the gross roster mismanagement is just off base. They still had plenty of cap space for anybody else, and they constantly fucked it up because Knicks. Whatever.

He forced his way to my team, gutting it from the get go, then continued to maximize his earnings, but yet he did the best he could because the front office were dumb dumbs. :thumbsup:

Look, the Knicks did have to give up a lot to get him. But it wasn't a franchise-crippling trade. They fucked the dog for the last 6 years, and that's not on him. If you don't think he played well enough to earn his contract, then you can hit him on that, but I don't agree with you there.

Ha! This is true. But at the time of the trade, the Knicks had cleared all the Isiah-era garbage off the team, and had some flexibility. The only meaningful long-term salary was Amare, and they still had their amnesty. The original sin was amnestying Billups, who was an expiring, rather than saving it for Amare.

He ain't wrong.


I was gonna say Melo is gonna have to improve his rebounding but Russ and Adams can cover that. A trio of Russ/PG/Melo is gonna be an offensive nightmare, finally be able to hide Roberson effectively. Defensively should be pretty good too. I still like the Wolves chances against them with KAT/Buckets/Wiggs/and Rubi...oh.

Kanter is a pretty good backup big to have (contract is done after next year, right?) and McDermott, uh.....got a pick too, right? Could be worse.

I for one welcome our new Kristaps overlord.

Carmelo stabbed by Knicks

It hurt because Anthony could have left in 2014 but re-signed with the Knicks — gaining a precious no-trade clause.

“If that trade clause wasn’t [there], I’d have been God knows where because he was just ready to move on at that point,” said Anthony, who felt Jackson would have accepted anything just to be rid of him.


I think he stayed there for the money, but what do I know?
