    if you're worried about getting wins then sure it does. if you want to suck then no it wouldn't matter and half the league wants to suck now obviously.

    if you completely suck and got some dumb gm to pay you $10 mil per that's absolutely terrible

    Unless Melo is giving back a TON of money, it wont make sense for the Knicks.... That means close to $10 million in dead money for the next 5 years. I think.... if there is a snag about gettin assets back for NYC, i think they eventually give in and sell him off pennies on that dollar.

    Again, I think the snag is a third team to take on that poison contract of Ryan Anderson.

    Following Potato Head's twitter, he still seems fairly confident. He has been engaging his audience and is proud to see his followers count go up exponentially

    I see no scenario in which they buy him out... that's $45 million to throw away an asset.

    No way Dolan does that.

    I suspect there is quite a bit going on behind the scene. But there's no news. However when the news falls silent, people get bored, their feelings get hurt, minds drift to the gutter, threads multiply, etc.

    It would be nice if some of this could be reigned in.

    Today sucked as far as actual news goes. I feel like every Twitter poster got attacked by Houston sports fans and is now being very careful about what they say

    I dont expect anything until after the Paul presser and I mean right after. So Friday evening if my expectation of a deal being done then we get the Melo press conference and I can focus on my wedding week.

    0% chance Melo waives his no-trade clause to go play for the lowly Nets.
