    For the non-believers out there still.

    Apologies are still owed to Potato Head, first of his name, His Spudness, King of the French Fries and the Tater Tots and defender of the fryer,

    Whatever. Time to move on.

    Not to be a dick.

    But if you say a trade is done... then it doesn't get done... you were wrong.

    if Paul George and Russ leave OKC, then I expect Melo to opt in and then negotiate a buyout like Wade did...then he can come here on the cheap

    No by done he meant agreed upon. That seems to have been the case, as many suspected. Deal just wasn't finalised, due to change in ownership most likely. #Potatohead was right!

    You ARE WRONG however, when a deal is finalised, the player arrives in the city he was just traded to and you still argue that the deal isn't done because CP3 is stubborn. Either fake news altogether or just really bad SAUCES!!

    It doesn't matter if there was a deal with Houston or not. The Rockets organization couldn't get the job done. Now, if the Knicks were asking for the moon in return, then it wasn't worth it.

    If you ignore the fact that it clearly never was a done deal, then yeah...it was definitely a done deal.

    That's a bummer. Melo wouldn't have helped us all that much, but it's a bummer to see the Rockets get stabbed in the back like this by the Knicks.

    Still, it could very well be a blessing in disguise.

    No bro. Not even a source in my opinion. Just happens to hear things, be around someone that knows and I'll ask something randomly when I see him.

    There are NYK fans still salty as hell over the Jeremy Lin thing, so they must be getting in a good fap or two over this. o_O
