CARMELO ANTHONY likely to return to Knicks, with CHRIS PAUL (if Paul is dealt here)

Interesting.

LEON ROSE says Anthony is welcome to come whether or not CP3 is acquired.

Ball is likely in Portland's court on this.

Why would Old Melo want to play on our Loser Squad?
How does Old Melo help NYK or our Yute?
(he could mentor Knox some).

Makes no sense.
He had a decent run in NY.
But a much better fit on a playoff team that needs bench scoring.

I've heard it described as a draft where if you're not picking 1 or 2 then it doesn't much matter where you pick in the top 10 as some talent will slide.

1. Is that a reasonable assertion?

If the above is true some might be tempted to call it a "deep draft" but my 2nd question is:

2. Is the draft class as a whole that good or are we going to be looking back in 7 years saying "wow.... only 1-2 all stars from this draft and only a couple other starters for good teams"

I guess you'd call that a "weak deep draft"

All just a guessing game at this point but i'm concerned that we're making a lot out of a little.

Personally, I don't even see picking 1 or 2 to be that desirable.  This draft is interesting because the wheels on the hype machine have fallen off.  I think the whole manufactured 'lottery' advantage of the draft has deflated entirely.

Sure you still have the Ball hype machine and some agent trolls advocating this guy or another but no mock is as regimented as they once were in lockstep.

This doesn't necessarily presume depth but it does reward talent evaluation.

So we may look back at this draft and find that the last in draft order came first.  However, due to the talent crunch that a folding of the G-League could create - doesn't matter so much where they get picked - where will they stick?

“Chris Paul would love to come back to L.A. I know it would be a dream come true for Chris,” an Eastern Conference executive said. “I know LeBron loves and trusts him and he would be a good fit.” – via Eric Pincus @ Bleacher Report

*Sigh*!

We all know how much this matters to Chris.  Let's send best wishes cards for this to happen, One can only hope that the benevolent fairy GM Lebron can pull this off.

*Sigh!*

Melo
« Reply #13782 on: October 18, 2020, 05:21:03 PM »

At this point in his career, Melo is a role player. 

On the Knicks he is going to want to play 30+minutes a fucking game. 

How does this advance the evolution of Randle or Wooten at PF....Brazdeikis or Knox at SF. 

Berman is a douche nozzle. 

Melo and Chris Paul. 

If this is Rose's approach heading into next season, I'm a Heat fan. 

Some mocks are projecting Killian Hayes or Isaac Okoro to us at #8.  Some panic regarding a video of Vassell showing a glitch in his shot.  Come on. 

Question is...do Hayes and Halliburton get picked before #8?

We could be looking at Okongwu, Okoro or Vassell.

I'll be getting fitted for a Heat jersey as well.

Enough is enough with Melo.

He belongs in Portland.

WTF do we do with him?

Chris Paul, looking to pick Dolan's pocket.

GTFO with this stuff.


Vassell was shooting from almost half-court.  Was making the shots.  But somehow he's damaged goods.

Oy

The only valid reason to sign Melo is damage control.  The Knicks reputation took a hit with how Phil handled Melo.  If Leon the professional brings Melo back it will mainly be to restore some of the damage done by how the Knicks handled his departure from the team. 

Think "Ewing Curse" and how the Knicks probably should've asked Ewing back to retire as a Knick.

I'm not saying I want Melo back. I'm saying that this is the only rationale I would accept for bringing him back.
Not to play 30minutes per night.  Remember there probably won't even be a full-season so this is mostly about optics.
