So what's your plan to get us a title?



Yes, the deal is hard so swallow. I know. It seems extremely short-sighted and rips at our heart. But let's establish a few facts before I move forward in this article. Jump!

1) We intend to contend for a championship during Amar'e's (damn, that's a lot of apostrophes) time here, preferably within the first 3 years.

2) While watching a young team grow and steadily improve around Amar'e, this team, as currently constructed, will not win a championship. Not happening.

 

Yes, it would be nice to add to the team that we currently have. But there is no way Melo hits free agency next summer. I absolutely don't see it happening. He wants the extension, and he's trying to get his money. By the way, I'm not judging him. Just stating something that has become prevalent in recent "insider knowledge". So, for the rules of this game, you can't assume that you add Melo through free agency.

This post is mainly aimed at the people that are opposed to getting Carmelo. What's your plan to win in the next 2-3 seasons? Who would you sign/trade for to get us that promised trophy? I would prefer FA signings, as they are easier to predict that a random trade scenario that probably favors the Knicks in a huge way.

Fans that dig the trade we're about to make can participate as well. Add Melo, Billups+spare parts (Balkman, Williams) and take out Chandler, Gallinari and Felton.

I would then like you to explain why your way of building the team to win a championship is better than what the Knicks FO is doing currently.

I hope we can have a better conversation in this thread than all the arguing about whether this deal is good or not. Have at it fellow posters!
