I'm sure many of us have seen this, and many of us don't give a shit about Carmelo and all of that. But I figured Mike the Intern was gonna post about it at some point anyway if someone else didn't. Plus maybe I can drum up some of those lame ass troll attempts by our resident Net fans who can't get enough coverage of the varsity squad.
Talk amongst yourselves. I'll give you a few topics about this proposed deal, which is contingent on Melo signing an extension. For some Knick-related conversation how would Denver's haul compare to ours for David Lee? Are the Bobcats getting the best end of this? Would this version of the JV team, with Melo in tow but missing their All-Star and their 3rd overall pick be better on paper than our team? Can anyone think of a really good baseball analogy for this situation?
The big question for me in all of this: what, exactly, would Carmelo be accomplishing by okaying this deal? Didn't he want to join a championship team? Or was getting out of Denver with his $65 million extension first priority? Does George Karl have asshole breath and Carmelo wasn't comfortable bringing it up directly? Was he aware that Rod Thorn is out and Billy King is now running the Nets? Let's hear some opinions.
Quick edit, I saw the headline on the Yahoo feed on the right, but Knicks Blog has a few links to the tweets of beat reporters, if that means anything to you fine people.
