More Analysis of the Post-Trade teams

Hey, look, an article that uses actual numbers to show exactly what all Melo critics have said for months or years. Without Melo, the Nuggets have been the best defensive team in the NBA. That's despite playing former Knicks significant minutes. The same Knicks who Melo lovers have said are role players and poor defenders. That's despite not having many practices to build chemistry. That's even with Ty Lawson as the PG, a guy who was considered too small to defend at the NBA level, but who the Knicks could have and should have drafted. I strongly supported drafting him, but Donnie got a big corpse called Jordan Hill instead.

 

On offense, Danilo Gallinari has outplayed Carmelo Anthony. Anyone who watches basketball and understands that games are won by substance, not flash, knew that a Melo-Danilo swap wasn't too lopsided in terms of talent. Then when you consider the Knicks sent over Wilson Chandler, an actual center, and their starting point guard, and paid Carmelo max money to bring down the team, how does anyone still consider it good?

Oh yeah, Knicks are relevant again.  Relevant as a joke for Letterman.

 

Of course some people will say I should just stop saying I'm a Knicks fan if I think the team made bad moves. Is that how you decide what team to support? You only support teams who make good moves? Yeah, what a fan.
