    Why trade for Melo when they can just sign him? He said he's willing to take less $$.

    He's probably hoping and praying that he has options. The sign of a true leader.

    Carmelo Anthony will probably have some better suitors than Detroit. We would have to show that we are one Carmelo away from being a contender. Which we are not.

    I mean, it is certainly worth a shot.

    We signed Josh Smith and Molly Jennings last year. What more do they have to do to show they're ready to win now?

    Nice one Ernie, lol!

    Now let's try this:

    Imagine you are Carmelo Anthony, you have played in Denver and New York and failed to achieve the ultimate goal. your choices in the table are:

    Join forces with Lebron, Bosh and Wade.
    Join forces with D.Howard and Harden.
    Join forces with Dirk Nowitzki and Monta Ellis.
    Join forces with Kobe and some other free agent
    Join forces with Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah
    Join forces with ..... Jennings, Smith and Drummond.

    What is the most logical choice that you would made? Please, be serious.

    If Melo and La La see this video clip...I'm thinking they just might be heading to Detroit:

    Nah. The difference between 19 million and 19.5 million isn't that great, especially once you include taxes. Melo want to compete

    To be brutally honest, I've never seen Melo interested in competing. He's interested in scoring a lot, but I don't think he really understands what it means to be competitive.

    I have always thought the opposite. Every time I watch the Knicks I see him hustling his heart out and the rest of his team being disinterested and lazy.

    I think it's almost impossible to read people's thoughts while watching them play a basketball game.
