They can afford him? That's news to me..
they actually can. But after i wrote my comment, i thought about it for some time, and i got it- why they want melo rite now. I think because they havent been in a playoff spot forr sooooo long, that they are so eager to make some noise in the playoffs come april that they are willing to trade half their players for Carmelo, so then Carmelo sees that this could be a good team, and signs with the knicks? This seems like a good reason why they wont give up on carmelo rite now.
