Since Flying Haque just thoroughly addressed the Melo-drama below, I thought I would open it up to readers to assess Melo’s best choice to beat Miami/Boston/Orlando/LA. Feel free to comment and debate the best destination.

    ORLANDO. If Melo wants to beat any of those teams he needs Dwight Howard. Chances are this will not happen any time soon. At the end of the day, Melo and Amare will not get it done for the New York Knickerbockers.

      DALLAS. — those are the only two teams that have what it takes. your thoughts

        I played around with the trade machine a little bit. This one works:
        Dallas gets Carmelo Anthony and Al Harrington (terrible contract)
        Denver gets Tyson Chandler’s expiring contract, Caron Butler’s expiring contract, J.J. Barea, and Rodrigue Beaubois, and Dallas’ next two first round picks.

        That was the best I could come up with, and I don’t really like it. I think Dallas is probably out.

      I just found a pretty amazing Orlando trade- it’ll be two separate deals:

      The first deal sends Chauncey Billups and Carmelo Anthony to the Magic for Jason Richardson (expiring contract), Jameer Nelson, Ryan Anderson (good young player with cheap expiring contract), and two first round picks (this year and next year). The second trade sends Al Harrington from the Nuggets (terrible contract) to the Magic for a trade exception from the Marcin Gortat trade.

      By doing this, Denver shaves $12 million off this year’s salary (saving them 24 million), gets two first round picks (although, they’ll be pretty high picks), gets rid of Harrington’s terrible contract, and gets a young point guard of the future at a good price

      • Flying Haque says:

        the one thing with this trade is it can’t happen till February 14th because J-Rich was traded a few weeks ago, but that’s before the trade deadline

  2. Hey West Coast Bias, any reason you leave out San Antonio from that list of contenders? Are the Lakers a “lock” in the West? I’m not so sure…
